Taupo Rodeo Club would like to take this time to thank all spon­sors and sup­port­ers for their con­tin­ued gen­eros­ity to­wards our rodeo each year.

We would not be able to pro­vide this event to the com­mu­nity with­out it and the over­whelm­ing sup­port each year is hugely ap­pre­ci­ated.

In light of the the con­tin­u­ous gen­eros­ity and sup­port we re­ceive each year by the Taupo com­mu­nity we too wanted to do our part.

We were able to do­nate $500 worth of pet food to the SPCA this year and we would like to thank the SPCA for their tire­less work within our com­mu­nity.

Taupo Rodeo Club also do­nated $1000 to­wards Ju­nior rugby.

This do­na­tion will be used to­wards the pur­chase of a por­ta­com which will hold sport­ing equip­ment and be used as an of­fice through­out the year.

The equip­ment is used by all Taupo Ju­nior rugby clubs and school teams through­out rugby sea­son.

Honey Bell, the ad­min­is­tra­tor of Taupo Ju­nior Rugby, said that they were re­ally grate­ful for the do­na­tion and ex­tended their sup­port to­wards Taupo Rodeo Club and rodeo as a sport.

Taupo Rodeo Club are proud to sup­port Ju­nior Rugby and hope that all teams had a safe and suc­cess­ful sea­son.

The Taupo rodeo is fast ap­proach­ing and we are busy pre­par­ing for what we are sure will be another great year.

Thank you again for all the sup­port and we hope to see you all there.

Honey Bell, Taupo¯ Rodeo Club With gorse be­ing such a prob­lem across New Zealand it was fan­tas­tic to see the cou­ple re­mov­ing mas­sive branches and root sys­tems from the Whakaipo Bay area over the week­end.

This will en­able greater beach ac­cess and en­joy­ment as pre­vi­ously the gorse has been en­croach­ing to the ex­tent that the beach is un­us­able.

It’s prickly work, you didn’t have to do it and it will make the beach a whole lot more pleas­ant for fam­i­lies over sum­mer.

Hope­fully a big bon­fire is planned so the stuff can go where it be­longs – up in smoke! Thank’s so much. Jane
