Rotary Bay of Islands annual beach dig on Paihia Beach creates summer fun and memories for all
The club had games for children and adults to participate in, including an egg and spoon race, tug of war and a sack race. The children take part in digging through the sand to find wooden sticks and win prizes. Children of all ages love to take part. The club also had a sausage sizzle in the morning to raise funds for the club. Our annual Sandcastle Competition, held the prior weekend, was an absolute joy to organise for the local community. The Sandpit Bar (venue of the club’s weekly meetings) took on the project and the Rotary Club put on a sausage sizzle and helped with the judging. Sandcastle entries stretched the length of Paihia Beach and had entries of all creations from family, children and adults, all in for a chance to win fantastic prizes sponsored by local businesses. Participants had two hours to make their creations before judging.
