Wow!! What an amazing couple of days we had this weekend - nearly 100 fantastic women braved the winter weather and came up to the beautiful Pirongia Forest Park Lodge to take part in our many adventures that were on offer.
Lots of challenges, fun and laughter and good food to keep everyone happy!
We really enjoyed delivering these days - and were very stoked to work with such an awesome bunch of wahine!
We look forward to working with you all again!
