South Island Optimist Championship Last Chance to Show Expression of Interest

This is the last chance for your club to express their interest in hosting the South Island Optimist Championship over the next few years.  If you have, or a building, an active Optimist fleet it would be great to hear from you!

This event has caused some confusion in recent years and we are keen to get it nailed down on the event calendar for the next few years.

Once we have heard from all interested clubs we will make a decision around whether it is held annually at one club or rotated around several clubs rather like the North Island Champs is currently.

Please discuss this with your club committee and then complete this form by 30 November if you are interested.
