TARGA RALLY PASSAGE CONTROL

Wed May 25 11:07am

We have a wonderful group of helpers to do the marshalling for the Crownthorpe Stage of Targa this weekend.
In order to boost the benefit to the school Targa has said we can do Passage Control as well.
This is a simple job that involves standing at the start of the stage with a little bucket and collecting money from each vehicle.
We can’t do it for our local stage, but they have offered us a spot at the SH50 end of Whakapirau Rd, Maraekakaho, starting at 2.15pm.The marshals will still be busy here, so I’m hoping another couple of awesome parents and kids might be able to do this for the school?
When we’ve done it before we had the portable school sign and the kids in uniform, and it was a lot of fun.
Please contact me at anna.apatu@gmail.com  as soon as possible if you can help.
Many thanks,
Anna
