Splendid Teapot Racing at CubaDupa – registrations are open

Splendid Teapot Racing logoHere’s the news you’ve been waiting for: registrations are now open for Splendid Teapot Racing at this year’s CubaDupa.

CubaDupa has asked us to stage races on both the Saturday and Sunday of the festival – that’s the 19th and 20th of March – so the registration form asks you to specify a preference of days. ‘Both’ is a perfectly acceptable response! Racing will be from 2 – 4pm on both days, and you’ll still have plenty of promenading time.

We’re looking at the always-popular Hills Hats tour on the Friday afternoon, followed by dinner, but both will depend on the level of interest shown. Even without a teapot you can email us to let us know you’re definitely coming. We can also offer a Victorian perfumier on the Saturday morning, with lunch at the top of the cable car before we have to get back down for the teapot racing.

The registration form itself is here, or go here to check the rules first.  Register early – we’re hoping to beat the 14 teapots who entered last year and give Oamaru’s record of 24 a nasty fright.

And may the best teapot win.  Huzzah!!
