Applicants needed for Bushrangers Test Match in NZ on 1 to 3 June

Shane Jenkins2013 Archive

There is an opportunity to send a Bushrangers Team to compete against the NZ Pinestars in early June (June 1-3). The events are being held just south of Auckland and NZ are happy to host the test match.

Given the late notice of this I am asking you if you are interested and available to be in the team could you send me an expression of interest ASAP so we can decide whether to proceed with this planning.

It would be my intention that any elite senior or junior currently living in Australia would be eligible for the team.

To make the trip worthwhile we need at least 4 males and 4 females to make up the team. A great opportunity to get some international competition.

If we can get a team together I am happy to do the planning re accommodation entries etc.

The areas they are using are two days of coastal sand dunes and a new map on gully spur. The event on the Saturday is middle distance WRE, Sunday is a long distance.
