Getting Toby to the Sika Show - He's coming along, so come and be part of the fun...

Postby Carpe Diem » Wed Sep 09, 2015 8:55 am

Hi Guys, I loaded the following on the NZHS site also but it also is very important for you all as well as it spells out what a few of us have been trying to organise in the background for Toby to catch up with you all around the Sika show. - Any questions by all means please let me know or comments or additions lets use this as a online but of course movable plan... Thanks Rushy etc for your input - and yes Toby is totally aware and agrees wit hthe plan as it stands..

Regards P.

Hi All,
A small number of you might be aware that there’s a rumour that Young Toby might be hitting the Sika show this year. Which to me is pretty amazing given he constantly reminds me (when I ring him) that the Doc’s had originally not forecast him making it this far… Dude you consistently amaze me with your ability to make each day a new goal, and continue to fill your life with worthy experiences..

So after hearing about his fantastic trip “Down South” we’ve been thinking how in the North Island we can add to the great experiences shared by our forum brothers down in the Mainland.

Toby was pretty keen to see a few of your ugly mugs.. So we decided the Sika Show was both nice and central and that gave an opportunity to do this over an event, a beer and BBQ. Toby also had some other special requests so we’ve tried to thread those into the weekend also.

Firstly Thanks to Maca for putting together some accommodation for Toby over at Kinloch for the Weekend, and hopefully fingers crossed this is how the weekend will roll out…

On Saturday I’m Gonna grab Toby for the first part of the day from his slumber and we’ve organised an awesome fly fishing guide to take him fishing for a few hours. We’d originally hoped he would attend the next Reel Recovery retreat in February 2016, but we thought we’d drop this in as a wee taster for the young fella. Huge thanks to Craig Farrar from dreamtrout.com and troutshop.co.nz for helping me stitch this one up.
I’ll be getting him back to Taupo/Kinloch mid-afternoon so the boys (if I can call Rushy, Maca, and Happy - boys that is) for a bunny hunt, BBQ and Beer. I’ll let them follow up with the details round that little escapade.

Sunday I’m pretty sure Rushy will be subjecting everyone to one of his trademark Brecky, then hitting the show. Just look for the guy with the marker pen and his trademark autograph, yep it’s not hard to spot the young stringbean amongst us old buggers…

On Monday the 28th David Benfell editor at NZ Outdoor Magazine who together with LoadedNZ have put together a fantastic day at their facility between Tauranga and Rotorua for Toby and any of you lot out there who might want to attend. I’ve sold then the idea that it wouldn’t be the same without Toby’s forum mates being able to share this alongside him, so they have offered a special deal for the day of $50.00 per person (and you can purchase additional ammo there as well should you need to beyond the starter package) to partake in the planned activities and BBQ afterwards.

Guys… if you are thinking about taking the long way home on the Monday - I know Toby would love to see as many of you as possible to join him at LoadedNZ… Please any interested in taking this up let me know via PM so we can plan for numbers for the BBQ food etc. I’m sure Toby will be pleased to show you he hasn’t lost his touch with the shotty… Huge thanks of course to NZ Outdoor Magazine, and LoadedNZ for their support with this and you too Dave – Magic!!

So there’s the plan in its roughness – I encourage all of you if you’ve shared across the forum(s) maybe even not met Toby personally before, If you can make it to one of the events across the weekend –superb!, if you want to pop around and share a chat, word of encouragement for this lad -that continues, and always will amaze me…

Cheers Carpe Diem

Ok boys really keen to know if anyone can make it to Monday following Sika Show at LoadedNZ from over here...

Heres the link... http://www.loadednz.co.nz/activities

The other boys on the other site won't see this... but here's what NZ Outdoors are putting up on the day for young Toby and any supporters. so well worth it if you can indeed make it. As you know owing to family I'm making a day trip on Saturday (but sticking round as late as possible) I'm stuffed but please guys make the most of it.

> Morning Paul

Just to give you a heads up on Monday the 28th Sept heres a few points for Toby and the team.

- The range will be specially opened for Toby at 10;30am, let me know if you would like this adjusted.

-There will be an amount of ammunition on the house to be divided up as you see fit between your guys. We haven't gone firm on how that much will be.

-Any extra shooters that are not covered by the complimentary ammo will have a discount rate of $50 to shoot. This includes BBQ, knife throwing, archery, 25 shells, shotgun hire and instruction.

-We will provide lunch which will be a BBQ using 'sustainably sourced, free range organic venison' ;-)

Look forward to seeing you all on the 28th and at the Sika show.

Regards

Sounds like it will be fantastic but I can't be there for that I am afraid. Definitely want to see a report though.
