CANCELLED. Unfortunately we have had to cancel Get to the Point on 6th November 2021.

While we were hoping for a reduction in Covid-19 levels the government announcement on Friday 22nd has made clear our options. We would have had to remove 80% of all activities to operate. A case of Covid in the South Island also places a risk to the community which we could not mitigate safely.

The Gymkhana committee would like to thank all of our stall holders and sponsors for their support and patience. We look forward to being back on the 5th November 2022.

Individual events that will proceed on Saturday 6th November 2021

Shearing – Location to be advised soon

Highland Dancing – Pleasant Point town hall

Dog Trials – Driscoll Rd, off Pleasant Point highway

Tug -O-war – Cancelled

 

 

Come enjoy the family friendly Get to the Point 2022

Nov 5th, Main rd center, Pleasant Point

In 2020 we had over 100 craft stalls, bespoke handmade goods, garden suppliers, local food vendors, and FREE entertainment for the children. The Vintage & Classic car show to town with a sprinkling of Mustangs to boot, Shearing competition and much more make this a great family day out.

Get to the Point continues to host Gymkhana Shears, one of the South Island’s largest shearing prize pools. We have Highland dancing, dog trials, vintage traction engine rides, steam train and rail car rides from our historic railway station, helicopter rides, live music, and entertainment all day by our roving magician and balloonist.

Free children’s amusement rides included Bouncy castles, slides, miniature pony rides, and face painting, as well as our reinstated Pleasant Point tug-o-war competition.

 Our Next Get to the Point is 5th November 2022

Entry is Free, and there’s room for everyone!
