There will be at least four adults on duty so that parents will be free to be involved in the sporting activities – as well as providing a “safer” junior lolly scramble away from the main activities.


“Top-Town Challenge” at 4.00 pm – everyone to meet at Peter Fraser Park, Lake Hawea for this – which will include the spud gun battle, the egg-cup relay, tug-o’-war, water slide, and spud-gun lolly scramble.  (Come prepared to get wet).
