Sunday 13 – Trek along new Otaki cycleway/bridleway. Leaving from Emily Thomson’s 664 SH1. To get to Emily’s, take local road from Peka Peka to Otaki, and at the set of lights (near the old Marycrest), turn to go through the tunnel. Parking for 4-5 floats through the other side, and more parking at Emily’s. Be ready to ride out at 10am. Cup of tea / coffee at the floats when we return 🙂 NOTE – it is a weekend, so be aware there may be a lot of cyclists, walkers etc. At times we will be close-ish to the expressway, and also the train track. Depending on how large our group is, we may set of in two lots. Please indicate on Facebook if you are intending to come.
MONDAY 28TH – NITE MEETING
NOTE DATE CHANGE from Wednesday 16 – *****NITE meeting for those who might be interested in being in a club team for NITE 2024. Meeting held at Nicky Robinson’s 55 Kensington Drive, Peka Peka 7.30pm****
Sunday 27 – Rally at Waikanae Park arena 10am
Wednesday 6 – Committee meeting at Val Ballinger’s. Note new start time of 7.30pm
Sunday 10th – KRC Closed Ribbon Day – Waikanae Park Arena. This is for all club members to attend. A fun day of a couple of flat classes, obstacle course, games, and some jumping. No pressure to do everything.
NITE 2024 (North Island Teams Event) will be held at Stratford 6/7 January. This is a riding clubs annual event and our club usually sends 2 teams. Teams consist of 4-6 riders.
Phases will be:
-Riding club mount (obstacle course)
-Formation jumping (team of four – jump singly, then in pairs, then as a four). Low jumps, all about timing rather than height.
-Quadrille (fancy dress to music)
It is such a lot of fun!! Have a think if you might like to attend. Our club likes to focus on participation and having fun, so there is no pressure to be an expert, or to do all of the events, just come along and have a go. Four of the team of six participate in each phase (with the exception of show jumping, everyone in the team is allowed to have a go at that, and the top four scores count for your team).
We will be setting a date for a NITE meeting in August for those that might be interested in being part of a KRC team. Date to be advised.
