We will provide all the equipment, transport from Blenheim, accommodation and race entries. Traveling down on Saturday afternoon we will rest up for the evening at Pegasus Gateway Motel before race day on Sunday. 250m and 500m races are the call of the day. At the end of the exciting day of racing we will then tuck you up in the minibus with a well earned beverage and deliver you back to Blenheim ready to tell your workmates all about your awesome weekend. Don't worry about your fitness! Races are all done and dusted in around 2 minutes and its the very start of the season, no-one is really very fit.

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
