Greg Murphy and Craig Baird were some of the
first to drive the Go Karts at Highlands...Murph
says: ''The Highlands Go Kart Track is the perfect
spot to let the kids have some awesome fun and
learn some skills at the same time. It could be
where the next NZ Motorsport Star is found!''
The countdown is underway for the start of the
2103 Southern Stampede season. Scheduled
to begin with an away game against 'Swarm'
in Auckland on 25 May, the excitement is rapidly
mounting with trials about to begin to select the
Southern Stampede team for 2013.
From then, it will be all action on the ice with
double header 'home' and 'away' games against
Auckland's 'Swarm' and 'Admirals', Christchurch's
'Red Swarm' and Dunedin side 'Thunder' through
until the finals set down for 24 August.
Team co-ordinator Charlie Reid says they had
initially wondered how this year would pan out for
Southern Stampede, with several of last season's
team members leaving.
''Brett Spiers has headed to Christchurch for work,
and three of the younger guys have gone to
Dunedin to study. But looking at it, and the names
of players who have put their hands up to be part
of the trials being held tomorrow and next week
(25 and 30 April and 2nd May), we should have a
good strong team,'' he said.
''We have some very impressive imports who will
be trialling, but it is also important to have a local
base as well.''
Support from the local community is an integral
part of the Southern Stampede's success.
Charlie said that visiting teams are very aware of
the advantage the side has here in Queenstown,
where spectators are very close to the action at
the Queenstown Ice Arena.
''We have a very loyal and very supportive home
crowd. These teams definitely know they are
coming on to our turf when they arrive here for
A new concept which will be introduced this year
is a limited number of season's passes available for
purchase which will give entry to all of Southern
Stampede's home games.
Of added interest this season, is the visit later in
the season of the New Zealand Ice Blacks team
who will be playing two exhibition matches
against the Southern Stampede side.
Currently the Ice Blacks are competing in the 2103
IIHF Division IIB Championship being held in Izmit,
Turkey, and competing against teams from China,
Bulgaria, Mexico, Israel and Turkey.
