Event Information

Battle of the Bays  Sunday 6th December at Whakaipo Bay.

With agreement from HBOC  a magnificent trophy from an earlier age is up for grabs between HBOC, OBOP and Taupo.  It has been competed for in the past between HBOC and Taupo clubs but has not been in evidence for quite some years now. So, this event is something of a resurrection for the trophy.

Event Information:

Courses: Planner Chris Morris has created 6 courses that will be suitable for all ages and abilities.

The classes for the competition are as in the table below, but teams and those who prefer a course not as per the age classes, can of course enter in any course they prefer.

Competition Rules:

The objective of the competition is:

Points based on average of time of qualifying club members in each course.

1st = 7 points

2nd = 5 points

3rd = 2 points

No entries = Take the next available points i.e. If the 2 other clubs have members on the course then take 3rd = 2 points

If there are more than 3 entries from a club in any course, multiply the points for that course by 1.5.

Entry Fees:

$5 for Club members

$10 for non-club members

SI cards will be available at $3

A limited number of maps will be available on the day with a late entry fee of $5.
