Red Bull Flugtag comes to Auckland: Rules, prizes, how to enter and where to watch

Mina Kerr-Lazenby Reporter from Community News

Come November 27, teams of brave inventors will hurl themselves off an Auckland pier and into the waters below, all in the name of Flugtag.

It’s a welcome return to New Zealand for the Red Bull Flugtag competition, which last graced our shores in 2004 when it was hosted in Wellington.

The competition will see amateur aviators design, build and then fly contraptions in a bid to be crowned winner.

The thousands of people set to descend upon Wynyard Quarter to see the event are likely to keep business booming for local hospitality hotspots.

For the full story, see below.

What local business will you be supporting in Alert Level 3?

Auckland will shift down to alert level 3 lockdown at midnight tonight.

Businesses will be able to operate using contactless options for ordering, pick-up, delivery and payment.

The financial blow of Covid-19 lockdowns on business has been harsh.

Are you planning to support a local business in alert level 3, and if so which one?
