Don’t forget the sunblock when you come to Puhoi’s signature woodchopping event on Saturday – looks to be a hot one…
What a peculiar year 2020 has been thus far, with the recent change of ownership at the pub and drop of levels we are putting together our ‘Annual Wood Chopping Carnival’, on the bottom lawn at the Puhoi Pub on Saturday 9th January 2021 . Bernie and Gary, former owners of Northridge Country lodge, in Silverdale are the new owners of the pub, with their three daughters and one son all involved with running the pub, making the pub another family run business.
We are in our 16th year of holding this event at our establishment and with huge help from the Puhoi Axemen Club and of course sponsors, we have all made it possible for the general public, overseas visitors and media who otherwise may not know how entertaining and important this sport event is to our area.
The aim for 2021 is to make it more exciting and beneficial to the viewers, be prepared for the ‘boys from Naki’, pitching their best against ‘Team Puhoi’.
Most of our sponsors give a monetary donation, from $100 upwards, while others give product promoting their business. These are divided into prizes of (product and/or prize money) for each chop. Each chop consists of four place getters across 22 events.
Tier 1 – $500 cash donation
Tier 2 – $300 cash donation
Tier 3 – $200 cash donation
All sponsors can have their business signage/advertising banners displayed on the day, present the prize for their chop as well as attend our sponsors dinner to be held from 630pm.
If you are interested in being part of this unique event, please contact us by email noting which tier or in what other capacity you would like to be involved, we will then provide all the details.
· Should we move up levels and need to cancel our event, we will provide full refunds on donations and product.
· We may follow this up with a phone call early next week.
Thank you for your support.
Team @ Puhoi Pub
…prove that you’re the smartest cookie in Puhoi if you’re not at the pub quiz on Thursday!
Get your team together and come down to the Pub on Thursday 20th June, 6:30 for 7:00pm start. Always great fun, and raises much needed funds for our local community. Come along and have a bit of a head-scratching laugh with your frindly neighbours.
Just a little reminder that it’s the famous Puhoi Pub Annual Woodchopping Carnival this Saturday, 9th January – 9am onwards. Come along and enjoy one of the best events in the Puhoi calendar! us the Jigger Board compettion will be on again this year – watch brave axemen scale unfeasibly tall trunks with nothing but but a plank of wood between them and a nasty drop, then proceed to chop away at the very trunk they are attached to! Watch men in tennis shoes slice through logs between their feet faster than you (well I) can even get a chainsaw started. Hopefully the weather will be fine, but Gillian assures us that, despite looking a bit slippery, they enjoy it more when its raining because it helps to cool them down!
Come along and enjoy a spectacular event, dating from the days when OSH was just a bad dream…
Due to an adminstrative error (calendar printing perhaps;-) the normal 2nd Thursday of the month Trivial Pursuits night has actually been scheduled for 17th September NOT 10th September, so please don’t turn up at the pub tomorrow (well not for the quiz;-)
At least it gives us another week to swot…
