Congrats to everybody that got involved today. Competitors, spectators, sponsors, volunteers and staff you were all awesome! The weather gods finally played their part and made for some epic racing. Also a special thanks to the talented Bex from @farm_lifestylenz for the awesome drone footage (be sure to check her out on instagram) more to come over the next few days.

We had a great day out in Rotorua yesterday for the Bay of Plenty Torpedo7 Get2Go Challenge. Nearly 170 students arrived in a foggy Rotorua early in the morning, ready to take on four team challenges – Orienteering (thanks Orienteering Bay of Plenty), Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing (thanks The Wall and Basement Cinema Rotorua) and Standup Paddling (thanks Liquid Stixx). Fortunately the fog burned off quickly and it turned into an awesome day in the outdoors. Well done to all of the students and congrats to the Whakatane High #1 team for top scoring and earning the chance to represent the region in the national final in December. 2B Insect Repellent Canterbury Biltong Ltd OMR Organic Muscle Rub Pic’s Peanut Butter
