kicking off the season - Feb 2017Alice Buchanan February 21, 2017 : 0
The Vodafone Warriors kicked off 2017 with their pre-season game in Palmerston North in February.
dtr was not about to miss this opportunity and both Palmerston North and Wanganui branches reached out to local schools and invited a group of lucky kids to come with us for the VIP treatment.
It was an absolutely beautiful day and Takoroa Primary School from Palmy joined with Castlecliff Primary from Wanganui to make up our group. We brought in a local face painter Annaleise Knox who came prepared with a Vodafone Warriors template and proceeded to decorate extensively our small team.
We provided goodie bags and took a short walk down to the stadium for our seats in the grandstand. Some of the kids hung over the tunnel high fiving the players as they hit the field. We think they must have been good luck as it was a fantastic game with our boys romping home to a victory. Let's hope it bodes well for the season!
