dtr shares the win - May 2015Alice Buchanan May 31, 2015 : 0
dtr recently ran a national competition for under 16 rugby league teams to win a training session with the Vodafone Warriors. The battle for top spot was fierce with teams sending nearly 3000 keen voters into local dtr stores to vote for their teams.
The Manurewa U9 Marlins, Marist U12 Saints and the Papakura U8 Tui's all came so close it was heartbreaking but at the end of the day the Glenora U11 Ewoks triumphed with over 800 votes, an incredible effort.
There can only be one winner but we wanted to acknowledge the Marlins, Saints and Tui’s so dtr invited them plus their coaches and parents to attend the Vodafone Warriors vs Knights home game. We presented all the kids with gear bags, drink bottles, posters and actual Vodafone Warriors mouth guards as a reminder of the day. The clubs didn’t miss out either with each coach being presented with 5 dtr/Warriors branded rugby balls.
It was a great chance to meet the coaches and the kids and give these kids a day out. Unfortunately the weather was atrocious but judging by the shining eyes and smiles I don’t think the kids cared! The Vodafone Warriors also turned in a very tense win as well which was the icing on a slightly damp cake for everyone!
The Glenora U11 Ewoks will be enjoying their prize in July and we will be sure to cover in detail their day so keep your eye on our blog.
