Chief’s Message 2019
Our Highland  Games which will be held on New Year’s Day 2019 will be Waipu’s 148th annual Highland gathering and Games. We look forward to another fine and sunny day.
Our games are considered by The Whangarei District Council to be one of the most Iconic annual events in Northland.
The event always draws a large crowd from throughout New Zealand to watch and participate in our traditional Scottish cultural activities. We have been hosting a New Zealand Highland Heavy Weight Championship Competition since 1993.
I must express my appreciation of the great work done by our volunteers on the lead up to the games, at the games , and the clean up following the games . Without them there would be no games.  We are always looking for more Volunteers amd new members so if you are interested, come forward  during the year and we will fit you in where appropriate.
I would also like to thank the committee  members who have worked tirelessly throughout the year.
We look forward to seeing you all on New Year’s Day

Don Ewen
