Bruce McLaren Intermediate Soapbox Derby qualified for the NZ National Final

The original date for the Waitakere Rotary Soapbox Derby was 17th March: St Patrick’s Day. Of course Murphy’s Law prevailed and it rained all day. The event unfortunately had to be cancelled. Not to be undone our intrepid drivers and pit crew headed over to the North Shore yesterday to do their races over there. I am very pleased to inform you that two of our drivers qualified for the NZ National Final, which will be held in a couple of weeks. Success in that event would see us travelling to Ohio (USA) for the World Championship.

A Crown Loan helped Rotorua Girls High School install energy efficient lighting in their gymnasium (Arena). As a result, the school now save $2,500 per year in energy costs.

The energy efficient technology installed also provides longer lamp life and less maintenance, resulting in additional savings as accessing light fittings in the high ceiling gymnasium is a costly exercise.
