Honda Kids Camps Adventures
It was our first camping trip as a family of four. We arrived in time to catch the end of quiz night and set up the tent at our Whangamata hideout before catching a surprisingly good ni-nighs, enough to bring back the good memories of holidays as a kid with the creek bubbling happily below us.
Classic Castrol High Jump
Mingling, coaching or getting ice cream with my two girls was about as good as it gets. As far as Broxholmes come, they are known for their low centre of gravity…..short legs. So for Chloe to win a silver, and Sarah to win a gold in the evening sprint run races made for one proud Dad/husband.
We had a ball and the bumpy downhill combined with fast and slow corners made my job easy. A hot day pitted in the middle of a slopping paddock, but the coaching was easy work with riders soaking in the information and the bumps!
The Broxy Set-up
Waikaia was the only place where we saw some rain and fortunately that was so late in the coaching that even the ladies session, the wettest of all, was a roaring success. There is nothing like new found confidence to brighten the darkest cloud.
My helper, young Jacob Kneebone was sold on the camp from the first few minutes. Good people, food and games were his idea of fun as it is mine. Even impromptu games with the tug-of-war rope kept us entertained but it was the talent quest that once again lit the camp alight.
Unfortunately the rain dampened any chance of putting on a show like I had done at Whangamata so hopefully the next camp at Waiotira this weekend will let us carve the hillside once again for more aerial antics.
