Piripaua release

Piripaua

The Whakamarino section of the Waikarataheke is choked up with logs and as a result the release in the top section will not be going ahead on 25 and 26 November. However the Piripaua section is good to go and this will release on Saturday 25 November. The HBCC crew have again been in there with chainsaws clearing out the debris, but there's more work required. For details see https://www.facebook.com/WhitewaterNZ/posts/1859339230773443
