The Southern Dash

The Southern Dash

An incredible three day South Island car rally weekend with a twist!

Visit remote towns, see breathtaking scenery, mountains and the odd cheeky Kea (and Trekker) to reach our Southern Kiwi kids.

This special weekend begins with a social event on the Thursday Night where each team will draw their rental car keys out of a hat. Who knows what type of vehicle you'll have until Sunday night!


Theme your team and your car for this southern adventure and travel some of the best back roads the South Island has to offer, all in the name of fun and fundraising. This event is very popular and spaces are limited so book early.

The Cocksy Classic

The Fishing Competition with a difference!

Tairua - Coromandel

What started as an idea after Cocksy’s send off over a beer or two, about how we all only catch up at funerals, it was decided that we need a better reason to stay in touch. That light-bulb moment has now become a fully-fledged charity fishing competition.


From a reason to stay in touch and connect, to a fishing competition with a purpose, the Cocksy Classic will be an event not only about remembering a legend or our mate, it’s about getting people talking & sharing their own stories, it’s a platform of support with the gift of bonding with like minded people to give back to a worthy charity that Cocksy spent many years supporting.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to The Trillian Trek, formally the Variety Bash.
