This year is special as it will have been 40 years since the first ever Katoa Po night relay was conceived and run.
So to honour the occasion we are going to make it a little special.
Graham Teahan was the founder and planner for the first relay and he has volunteered to be the planner for this 40th event. We will await with interest what he will have in store for us.
We had hoped to be able to use the map used for the first Katoa Po but unfortunately it is not available as it has been impacted by the recently built Taupo bypass route.
However, we have found a new map close to town that has many of the attributes of the original map that we are sure will keep you guessing.
We also will be having a “reminiscing” dinner on Friday night for those who planned and organised the various Katoa Po events – particularly the earlier ones.
We also have for sale a special commemorative T shirt available for pre order at a cost of $20.
