It was great to host the Bangers to Bluff group mainly from the Half Moon Bay Rotary Club in Auckland, Downtown Auckland and Charterton Rotary Club
 
They came along to our meeting and mixed in well with everyone.
 

The “Bangers to Bluff” Rally is an annual charity event organised by the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay (Inc). It is an opportunity to travel from Auckland to Bluff with a small group of likeminded adventurers, on a carefully crafted route through spectacular Aotearoa. A unique and rich experience, the start of lifelong friendships and participation in greatly appreciated support for widely loved and respected NZ charities.

The event for 2021 runs from Auckland to Bluff over 12 days starting on Tuesday the 6th April and finishing on Saturday the 17th April, 2021.

The event takes a group of fellow travellers (limited to only 20 vehicles) travelling a prescribed route using roads less travelled from Auckland to Bluff via several iconic regions. Roads traveled will include the Whanganui River Road, the Buller Gorge, the Haast Pass and SH99 between Te Anau and Invercargill.  With a rest day in Te Anau you’ll be able to visit Milford or Doubtful Sound and in Invercargill, you’ll be able to see the original Bert Munro’s World famous Fastest Indian.

The masthead charities are Multiple Sclerosis NZ and Hopeworks Foundation. Hopeworks is the “go to” umbrella organisation for those suffering from brain injuries.

My family and I were invited to the breakfast meeting on Saturday morning which was very amusing.

Thanks again for calling into our beautiful town.
