A group of 5 Russian paddlers are coming to NZ for the first few weeks of Feb 2003. They are planing to travel from AKL to Hoki paddling in Rotorua-Taupo and Murch-Hoki areas.
They are looking to meet up with Kiwis who can show them get in's etc and perhaps do a bit of impromptu guiding. (They assure me they are all grade 4-5 paddlers with experience in Norway etc).
If you are interested in being a contact person for these paddlers please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
