We, Little Trout in Taupo are furiously working away to bring you a great meet for the 2016 North Island Short Course Champs. We are currently negotiating a very generous bounty of prizes from our sponsors, but to kick it off, the first 20 entries received are being given a Foot Golf voucher from the Taupo Golf Club. Foot Golf is a new sport taking the country by storm and it's just got to be done! AND if you are an Early Bird and get your entry in before MIDNIGHT ON 31ST MARCH you will worm your way into a draw to win goggles, discount vouchers or one of the other great sponsor prizes! We have 5 Early Bird prizes to give away so don't delay!

Get you entry in now to see if you can be one of the lucky ones! (And to be honest swimmers, the earlier you can get your entries in the less stress it makes for us!) Entries close 16th April.
