Keep your memorabilia flowing!

We've had a great response to our trip down memory lane on 
Facebook - people loved reliving Walter Thorburn's incredible 1996 win and course record.

Keep checking in on our page for more golden moments and to keep in touch with all the latest news.  A few people have also responded to our call for memorabilia, including Port of Tauranga Half finishers from Paeroa, Auckland, Rotorua - and even England!

We'd still love to find more of your early photos - you can scan and email them to info@dscribe.co.nz or post them to our Facebook page.  And if you've got something that would look fab hanging in our container museum at the event in January, please let us know!
