Youth Council organises 'Mad Mish Through Mot'

May 4th, 2012

How much do you know about the best town in New Zealand? Our Youth Council's "Mad Mish Through Mot" is set to test your physical, mental and navigational abilities.

This "Amazing Race"-style event, put together by the Motueka cluster of the Tasman Youth Council, is set to celebrate Youth Week in the Motueka area.

Scheduled to take place on Sunday May 27th, the event kicks off from Decks Reserve and will take participants on a journey throughout the town with a wide variety of challenges along the way.

Pre-registrations forms can be downloaded from and handed in to the Motueka Recreation Centre before 5pm on Friday May 25th. Alternatively, you can register on the day from 9.30am at Decks Reserve.

The first clue at Decks Reserve will set players off at 10am on their journey to discover Motueka's mysteries. From there they'll go from clue to clue, completing an assortment of challenges that will put them through your paces. Teams will be vying for the first place prize of $200 cash, as well as plenty of spot prizes.

Tasman Youth Council member Jacob Linn believes this event will have a positive influence on the youth in the area and gain community awareness and involvement.

"Tasman Youth Council's main goal is to give Motueka’s youth some more events and activities to take part in," he says.

This will be the closing event for Youth Week 2012 in the Tasman region. For more information, please contact Libby Brown on 528 8228 or email The cost is $5 for a team of four.
