Na Roxanne Paenga
On the 3rd of Januaray 2007, Kaiwaka Marae entered a team into the local Pa Wars competition. Held at Ngata Memorial College, Ruatoria.
Things kicked off at about 8.30am. With all marae lined up on the field showing off their banners and getting ready for the parade.
Our marae participated in the good old Fun Walk, Euchre for our pakeke, volley ball, junior trivial pursuits, ripper rugby, darts, pool, junior/senior boys/girls 100 meter sprints, relays, karaoke, and tug-o-war.
Our junior girls came third in the sprints and second in the relay.
While our junior boys came third in the relays and our senior men who came second in the 100 meter sprints.
Kaiwaka also had a junior trivial pursuit team. Our trivial pursuers were Roxanne, Roimata and Ainsley Paenga along with Maria Stevenson. Ka pai girls.
Our ripper rugby team won their first battle against Waiomatatini, but unfortunately we lost to Hiruharama in the next round. However, even though we lost our game, our ripper rugby team was awarded the Fair Play Award.
We also had a Volleyball team this year, unfortunately we lost by one point to Rahui, but we still put up a good fight. Player of the match. Papa Ra Paenga. Hehehehe
Our ears were entertained by the Tui like voices of Nanny Sarah and Roberta. Although we may not have received a placing in the Karaoke, im sure yous would get far in Nz Idol with all our votes.
Our last encounter was against Wharekahika. In the battle dome of Tug-o-war both teams took the strain, man that first pull, both teams were absolutely still. Unfortunately our team were beaten. But once again we put up a good fight. Tu meke Wharekahika.
But overall whanau, we all had an awesome day and it would have been even better if we could of had all the other Kaiwaka whanau there with us. wink wink hint hint
We would like to thank all the other whanau who came from near and far. Nanny Rosie, Papa Johnson and their whanau who came from Auckland. Papa Sid who came from Wellington. Young Sid, Cherie and their whanau sho came from Taupo. Jesse and Tarah Martin who came from Palmy, and a big mihi to all our other whanau who came and supported our marae, the Paenga's, Stevenson's, Nukunuku's, Raroa's, Fox's, Puketapu's (Boyle's, Lyttle's, Rangihuna's) Colliers, and all the other whanau who joined in and supported Kaiwaka Marae.
Thank Yous all.
