About 80 riders rode 400 kilometres of tarsealed road from Hunterville, across the Taihape- Napier road, back down through Hawke s Bay on State Highway 50, over the Saddle and back to Hunterville via Colyton and Vinegar Hill. They arrived back to the Hunterville Rugby Clubrooms to a barbecue and spot prizes. One of the organisers, Ron Bart- lett, said they raised about $2000. The Hunterville Rugby Club presi- dent, Porky Green also presented the club with a cheque for $300. It is hoped that the event will be held annually. This money is being raised for the Wellington-based Ronald McDonald House. The Hunterville, Marton and Bulls Lions Clubs are working together to raise $50,000 for the Rangitikei Room. LA bound: Westpac Feilding has donated 12 gear bags to the Feilding High School Premier Boys Basketball team whose members are travelling to Los Angeles, on December 4 returning on December 23. They are competing in a five-day tournament and one other organised game. Cushla Lewer and Janet Snaddon (pictured) from Westpac Feilding both have sons going on the tour. Eleven boys are travelling with their coach Darron Larsen and manager Jemma Lawton and teachers from Feilding High School. The team has been fundraising for their trip all year. Photo: SUPPLIED Marching on to cheers Marching team Phoenix Angels were very excited to be invited to perform their display and routine marching in front of a packed enthusiastic crowd last Saturday at Feilding s Civic Centre. The team is made up of girls aged6to9years--andthiswas the first time they had marched in public. Executing their routine with great flair and fun -- and a few nerves! -- the crowd of leisure marchers and friends gave the girls welcomed rounds of applause and calls of well done . This is an excellent sport and teaches the girls how to work well within the team environment -- to listen and learn new skills. But most of all it has taught them how to have a lot of fun with other girls within the same age group. After finishing their routine the team took the time to sit and watch how the senior teams worked together and the routines that they carried out. Many of the girls are now want- ing to include some of the things they saw into their performance. It certainly showed us that the effort we put in to teaching them is well worth it. So, thanks heaps to everyone who helped to make this such a special day for our girls.
