Host Town: Naas Host to the New Zealand Team

## Huge Crowds Turn Out as Olympic Torch Run Passes Through Naas ##

Naas has been chosen to host New Zealand - a team of sixty athletes and coaches. It will be the responsibility of the Committee to transport, accommodate, cater, provide sports training, medical support, and entertainment for the team. The New Zealand Athletes will be competing in Athletics, Bocce (bowls), Equestrian, Golf, Powerlifting, Swimming, and Ten Pin Bowling.

New Zealand Team and Race Day LaunchNaas Plans
We see the athletes training in the morning, relaxation such as swimming, pitch and putt, visiting an attraction in the afternoon and having a meal and entertainment in the evening. The programme would apply to the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The Irish Prison Officers have kindly agreed to look after our guests for one day and Naas Racecourse have invited our group for the Wednesday Evening Race Meeting. This should be a memorable evening as we will be joined by the Japanese, Kenyan, and American Samoa delegations. We are planning a farewell night on Thursday which we would ask host families and volunteers to attend. On friday before the team leaves for the games they will be present when the Torch Run arrives in Naas.

At this stage the committee has received terrific supportThe fund raising schemes have exceeded our target.
