Taupo Tap-Out

Taupo Tap-Out
Friday, November 25, 2011
Host club: 
Contact info: 

Taupo Tap-Out our 1st tournament, but will on one the busiest cycling days in the southern hemisphere. We have 14'000 people riding around our lake the day after the tournament, so come and be part of the festivities. The tournament semi finals and finals will be held in the closed off main street. So huge crowds of spectators will be around to watch the best teams fight it out.

Limited to 16 teams, 1st in 1st served. We are putting on self drive Hire vans to get from Auckland Airport and back again, and accommodation is being sorted for players. If you need help finding flights please contact Jane Cederwell (janec@hot.co.nz) and she will organize flights for you. Please inform her how many people will be traveling, and what city you are from. We are suggesting flying to Rotorua, which is only 45min down the road. We will pick you up. Flights as I understand it from Sydney are on Tuesday, and Saturday. Feel free to stay the 1st night in Rotorua (Tuesday)

There is no entry fee, but ask Teams to purchase a souvenir team t-shirt to play in during the event. These Tee's will be $25 and have your team name across the back shoulders. Please contact me with size, colour and team name when you register.

For more information e-mail me at nigeltipene@hotmail.co.nz

Cheers, and look forward to seeing you all.

So I guess I'm going to fly out for this tourny. My plan so far is fly into Auckland on Nov 22nd (but maybe the 19th instead and ride to Taupo). Then split the next week sometime, 28th or 29th. Looking for a team but bringing my bike and mallets and drinking shoes.

57 kegs a tourny bitch!

Ha, really?? if you're serious we'd love to see you here in NZ. I'll allert Nigel (Taupo organiser) as entries have officially closed... but there's gotta be a space somewhere!!

Yeah...I'm sure we can find you a team. Glenn from Auckland just e-mailed me this morning to say he had lost a player. Fortuitous I feel. Come on down!!


Oh shit yeah! I've also send messages to friends over in Sydney and Adelaide seeing if anyone needs a third.

If you haven't already, get in touch with Nigel in Taupo, there's accommodation and some Auckland to Taupo transport options (transport may be full??) - nigeltipene@hotmail.co.nz
CU soon dude!

Cool, been chatting with Nigel and got my plans sorted out. I'll be in Auckland Wed 23rd and probably catching a bus Thursday night. Woot!

Shot Bro'. The Christchurch Crew arrive in Auckland on Thursday evening, see you on a bus or in Taupo!! - Craig.

We can take you down Thursday night if you can get to Auckland airport at 4pm.

Awesome, should not be a problem.

We'll be at the


collection point from 3:30 to 4:pm on Thursday. See you there. (obviously, look out for 3 guys with polo bikes)

Is this some kind of secret melbourne bus?

Is that the gate 11 collection point? Or should I make my way right to their branch a bit to the north.

Sorry Sydney, we do things with a little more style down here. We'll be sure to wave though :)

I'll be sure to let your tyres down if I see your bus first :)
