    Teen Only Night

    13.04.11 | Permalink | Comments Off

    Karori Library will be open this Friday night just for you. Yup. No old people, no kids; just high school students or those aged 13-18 *

    We’ll have free internet and gaming, Guitar Hero, Kinect and Wii, there will be free pizza and lollies, and since it’s the last day of term we thought that we’d ramp it up a level, and get you some live music too.

    Here’s a taste of Friday…

    The Almost Amazing Race: Registrations Closed!

    09.04.10 | Permalink | Comments Off

    Registrations for the Almost Amazing Race 2.0 are now sadly closed (on account of the race being less than a week away!).

    Did you register as an individual saying you’ll register your team later? If you’ve done this then what you need to do now is email us (teenblog@wcl.govt.nz) with the details of your team (names, ages, email addresses, postal addresses, and your team name). We’ll be checking up on you probably anyway.

    Want to find out more about the Almost Amazing Race and how come it’s almost amazing? Have a look at this post.

    If you’re a registered racer you’ll be receiving vital information before next Friday, but you can always email us if you’ve got a query.

    So, keep up with your training regimes (or not) and have an almost amazing time until we see you on Friday the 16th of April.

    Almost Amazing Race 2.0: Register Now!

    16.03.10 | Permalink | Comments Off

    At the end of last week I subtly announced that registrations for this year’s Almost Amazing Race 2.0 are now open. This is the less subtle version:

    The Almost Amazing Race 2.0
    Friday 16 April 2010
    Register your team now!

    What is The Almost Amazing Race 2.0?

    Teams of max four will race (observing road rules and other laws of the land) around the city, completing challenges that will test them mentally and physically, in order to be the first team to solve the puzzle and be named the winners of The Almost Amazing Race.

    So, organise your friends and your wits, make sure you’re free on Friday 16 April, and you could be the almost amazing winners (or failing that, you could have a jolly good time).

    You can have a look at last year’s Almost Amazing Race here.
