Horse Drop Fundraising Day
A fun way to raise funds for kids Gold Coast Touch Trip.

Belmont Primary  – Sunday 29th of July.

24 North Harbour based kids have been invited to play for the under 13 boys or girls Global Sport Touch Team to play in Australia from September 29th until October 7th.
This will be a fantastic opportunity for these kids, as they will receive some of the best coaching from the top Australian touch coach on the Gold Coast. They play two games each night from Tuesday to Friday then on the Saturday they get to play against three top Australian sides and together with the U15’s U17’s U19’s Open and over 35’s to try and retain the “Challenge Cup”. Most of these kids have represented North Harbour age group touch teams last season including four players from last seasons undefeated Under 13 boys development team who won Gold at this years IPS Series held in Rotorua.
These kids have been madly trying to fundraise to get themselves across to the Gold Coast for this tournament; one of their major fundraisers is the “Horse Drop Day” which is being held at Belmont Primary School on Sunday 29th of July.
The cost for each player is $1900, this includes airfares, taxes, accommodation, tour bus, food and uniforms, and this tour is sanctioned by Touch New Zealand and Touch North Harbour.
The “Horse Drop Day” field is divided up into one metre squares and each square costs $5 which is a really good deal because could win you $3000 – or if you are there on the day you stand to win $3500.
So come along and have some fun there will be a “Hole in One Golf Competition, Pony Rides, Sausage sizzle, coffee and of course the Horse Drop, the fun starts at 11am then the horse is led onto the field about 1pm.
The teams are aiming to do one more fundraiser after the “Horse Drop’ and that will be a “Sporting Memorabilia” raffle which will include a round of golf with World No.1 women’s amateur Lydia Ko (her pro coach, the winner and a mate), Brisbane Bronco signed memorabilia, signed All Black jersey and signed David Tua gloves.
So get on board the “Horse Drop Day” and support some very exciting talent from the North Shore.
