Piri Mokena Games this Labour Weekend
Kia ora whanau – The Piri Mokena Cup Games are this weekend in Kaeo. Come along. Its an awesome annual event. This year we will have a few whanau returning home so it will be neat to reconnect.
Location: The games are held at the Kaeo Rugby Club at 40 Whangaroa Road, Kaeo.
Powhiri Friday night: Alec Aperahama, Sandra and Fonz Hei Hei, Diane and Maaka Rainey will be attending the powhiri on behalf of Taemaro. Please attend and support if you are also available. I believe it is at 6pm at the Kaeo Rugby Club.
Saturday and Sunday Start time: The gates open early but the games themselves do not normally kick off til 10am.
The draw is not released until Friday night at the powhiri so rugby and netball players need to be ready to run on and play by 10am so best to get there by 9am.
Alec Aperahama and Fonz Hei Hei and Nathan are arranging the rugby team.
A marquee for the rugby players will be set up on the far side of the rugby field.
La Verne King is managing the netball team. Our netball players are:

Stall staff: We have whanau booked in to run the stall on saturday and sunday but we are likely to need another couple of helpers. If you are there, please pop by to give us a hand OR turn up with delicious home made baking to sell.
