Lakeside Variety Country Music
On Sunday October 14 we are having 40-plus members from the Te Awamutu Variety Country Music Club visit with us and also Liz Clarke is bringing along members of our local People First group. It will be a great day for catching up with old friends or making new ones, laughing, dancing, singing or listening to our fantastic band, led by Derek Dewes. The club day will be held at the Taupo¯ Cossie Club from 1pm to 4.30pm. Everyone is welcome and there is no cover charge. closing on the dam. Arriving at the destination, a casual count indicated at least 70 visitors anticipating the spectacular water release. The lethargic water upstream of the dam flowing inexorably to the Tasman Sea was an immense contrast to the foaming and raging torrent that develops within minutes of water release from the dam. The rapids were used in films The Hobbit and Yogi Bear and certainly in the latter, extras from the district were employed. Homeward, there was only one sighting of a speeding jetboat as it made a fleeting visit to the dam. Further information regarding these regular walks is available from Bernie on 378 9229.
