We are giving “Autumn” Lunch time Touch a crack.

There will be a grade for Mens and Mixed teams and the competition is set to start on Thursday afternoon – 4th May.

It will be an 8-Week competition before the Windy rainy winter sets in. Games will be played over 35 minutes at 12:15, 12:50 and 13:15 respectively. Teams can expect an even rotation around these times.

The costs for the 8 week season is $400 per team. We will be taking individuals entries too, so if your entire team cant make it that is OK, we will put you in a team.

Book your Ferry through SEALINK. Adult return fare $25 per person and Child return fare $16 per person.

This is approximately 30% off your ticket. Sealink does not have an online enabled booking system. You need to call their SALES centre (above) and tell them you want the “Sports Team” deal for the TOUCH event on the 11th. 0800 SEALINK or (09) 300 5900 or via email to info@sealink.co.nz Have your payment particulars details on the ready. (If the person is confused ask to speak to a manager and failing this send me a rude email and I will kick butt…)

Transfers: The Sealink Ferry uses the Kennedy Point terminus, which is different to the Fullers Ferry that uses the Matiatia Terminus. Kennedy Point is actually closer to ONETANGI park (5 mins by car). What is quite a good idea is for one member of your team to take a vehicle on the 6am Early Ferry. 2 tickets are included in that Fee and best of all, your team will have Wheels on the other side.

Cash Transfer: will have a bus available at $5 (Cash) per one way trip to and from the Ferry to the park.

Departure Points: Sealink Ferrys depart from Wynyard Quarter (City) and Half Moon Bay – Pakuranga (Car Ferry). They arrive at Kennedy’s Point

 

With immediate effect Victoria Park has been officially closed for the installation of an irrigation system. The fact that Vic Park desperately needs a better irrigation system and will become a far better playing surface as a result thereof, does not help over 100 Touch teams and the organisers of NEW ZEALANDS largest touch footy competition, as well as Grafton Cricket also one of the countries largest cricket clubs, who now have no place to play.

When informed of the possible installation, field users were told that pipes would be thrust under the surface and that there would be work done on the periphery of the park.  Plans were made for extra touch fields and an early summer start to acccomodate the upheaval. Regrettably, that has changed and trenches are now being dug in a matrix across the surface. This work will be completed in December with time being set aside in January to allow the replaced grass to “take”.

So here is what we plan to do….

CORPORATE MIXED – It is possible that certain parts of VIC PARK will STILL BE PLAYABLE have been cut away and this we plan to still play on the 5th & 12th December – Bring your KIT ready to play at VIC PARK.

The 5pm Mixed CompetitionFor the next 3 weeks games will be moved to COXES bay for a 5:30pm start. Those players used to walking across to the park will need to make a 5-minute car trip up along College Hill Road to WEST END ROAD in Westmere to the Awesom Coxes Bay reserve…

Mens Corporate GamesMost of the Men’s games will be moved to 7:55pm at Coxes Bay reserve

IMPORTANT DATES

  • 5th December – 5pm and Mens to COXES BAY. Corporate Mixed on Standby (Games still scheduled at VIC PARK spare fields)
  • 12th December – 5pm and Mens to COXES BAY. Corporate Mixed on Standby (Games still scheduled at VIC PARK spare fields)

Here at TOUCHRUGBY.co.nz we never cancel because of “rain” itself. In other words, a little bit of rain never hurt anyone.

We MIGHT cancel due to unsafe playing conditions, council ground closure or even lightning and often this does not leave us with sufficient time to inform teams.

We tend to head out of the office around 3pm, so depending on the time of a cancellation (and this seldom happens remember!!) or if you are worried, its best for team Organisers to TXT me on 021 249 3678 for an update.

If we officially cancel then this is what we do in order of priority and time available…

1: We update Facebook – www.facebook.com/touchfooty – LIKE US!!
2: We send an email, such as this one
3: We update our website news section – www.touchrugby.co.nz
4: We text captains only

Thanks for listening

TouchRugby.co.nz is pleased to be playing a central role in making Moire Park (Home of Massey RFC) a hotbed of Junior and Adult Touch.

Moire Park is centrally located in the whole NORWEST REGION and is an ideal venue for Summer Touch, with 8 beautiful full-sized pitches and the refurbished Massey Rugby Clubhouse for refreshments.

There is a new impetus to combine the JUNIOR and ADULT competitions under one banner and the vision of Touch Rugby promoter Graeme Wallace is to have a one-stop Community Touch competition. “Imagine moms and dads training and supporting their kids in the Wednesday afternoon schools comp, while staying behind to play their own game of TOUCH with Friends, work associates and Whanau. Kids play touch, then stay behind at the playground or on the numerous playing fields kicking and passing balls, while Mom and dad play their adult games. There really is a grade/level for all ages, shapes and sizes. In terms of competitions to enter there is the popular Wednesday afternoon Junior competition involving local schools, as well as an adult mens, mixed and over 35’s competition on a Wednesday and Thursday evening”.

The competition is administered through the www.touchrugby.co.nz portal and boasts some of Auckland and North Harbour’s most experienced referees, electronic timing and an impressive Draws and Results platform to keep the Captains and Players up to date.

“The community’s support would be really appreciated this summer, not only to reinforce MASSEY RFC as an ideal home for teams, families and individuals throughout the Waitakere, Massey and Hobsonville region, but also for those participants to keep fit, stay healthy and to enjoy NZ’s awesome summer”
