Cambridge New Zealand Lake Karapiro – weird stuff

I am far from ‘being in the loop’ regarding all happenings hereabouts – but an event of such significance right here on our doorstep unmentioned? On Tuesday, yesterday, 1/6/2010; the unveiling of the re-branded Lake Karapiro Domain and subsequent official opening of the new Lake Karapiro Domain ‘events complex’ – the Don Rowlands Centre. Observed in Fairfax‘s local – Cambridge Edition, in retrospect, as ‘marking new beginnings, unity and celebration’ the event is reported to have been attended by Governor-General Sir Anand Satyanaand and Te Arikinui Tā Kīngi Tuheitia, Waipa Mayor Livingston and ‘hundreds of people’. OK, so I don’t read everything but do try and keep tuned to local ‘doings’. No mention on the Waipa District Whats On page, the Cambridge iSite weekly email did not flag it and the extensive (and oft competing) what’s on in Cambridge columns in the current issue of each Cambridge newspaper fail to note it. Odd, to say the very least.
