Welcome to Better than TV

Mukamuka Munter POSTPONED to 7th September 2013

The forecast is for up to 10mm of rain in the 12 hour period between midnight tonight and noon tomorrow. Being a South-easterly, according to the DoC rangers it will hit the Orongorongos harder than in town and the river is expected to rise quickly. With there being no track to get you back to the Coast other than back over Mt Matthews (i.e. back through South Saddle and the Mukamuka Valley) this would place all competitors in danger. The Orongorongo River too, when high, is fast flowing and can be dangerous.

On the basis that I would rather deal with a disappointed competitor than a grieving relative, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the event to 7th September.

I realise that for some of you, this date will not work. We want to be as fair as we can over this. For those that cannot make this new date, we can either refund your entry fee or hold the entry fee over the 2014. Let me know if you cannot make it and what you want to have happen. If you would like the entry fees refunded please let me know your bank account number.

I am really sorry about having to postpone and this is a hard call to make. However I’m keen that we put on a hard but safe course, one that leaves you munted but not in danger. I just hope now that the forecasters do have it correct.

If you have any questions please contact Shane Ross.


How's that couch then? Comfy? TV's on. Good viewing? How's that waistline? Growing? Taking you over? Is your exercise measured in how far you have to walk to find that remote? Are the commercial breaks about the maximum time you have these days for a bit of active time?
