Other details:

The Otamarakau School PTA Maize Scramble & Trail Ride has been CANCELLED due to the continuing bad weather conditions. The Landowners property is totally waterlogged and there is more heavy rain forecast. Out of consideration for the landowners we are cancelling our ride (for the first time in our history!) to preserve their farm and infra-structure and for the safety for everyone involved. We are optimistic that we will be able to have the ride in the near future, and we hope to see everyone on our upcoming rides. Enjoy the upcoming holidays and Stay Safe!
