OoH Now Selling Rugby Tickets

Ticketdirect and The Oamaru Opera House are now selling tickets to all Crusaders games at The AMI Stadium and all Highlanders games at Carisbrook. This Saturday will be a stunner.

The Crusaders’ opening Rebel Sport Super 14 match of 2010 is at AMI Stadium on Saturday, February 13, and there is a special curtain-raiser in store so make sure you get to the game early!

Kicking things off at 5.30pm is the BNZ Crusaders Legends v the Highlanders Legends.

The Crusaders team features such players as Reuben Thorne, Richard Loe, Graeme Bachop and Caleb Ralph.

All have played massive parts for the Crusaders over the years and on Saturday they get to pull the boots on for the Red and Blacks against a Highlanders Legends team featuring the likes of John Leslie, Jamie Joseph and Taine Randell.

The match is sponsored by BNZ, who are kindly paying the air fares for the players not based in Christchurch.

Former Crusader Tabai Matson, Canterbury’s current assistant coach, has been one of the main organisers of the Legends match.

He said: “The boys have been training hard for the past month. Collectively they have managed to lose 100kg! It has motivated a lot of people to get back in shape to get on the big stage again.”

The main game between the Crusaders and Highlanders kicks off at 7.35pm.

Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show in Oamaru Next Friday

Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show, the world's largest touring stunt show is coming to the Oamaru A & P Showgrounds. They will be performing at 26 different venues starting on Friday 18th December and touring until Sunday 14th February.

Scott May's Daredevil Stunt Show is a fast moving, action packed show with monster truck destruction, Europe's only monster ride-truck, the human cannonball, car-crushing action from Thundertrax, a tank/monster truck hybrid, motorcycle, quad and all-terrain buggy jumps, amazing fire stunts, two-wheel driving displays with cars, buggies and quads and much, much more.

Scott May has been touring with his stunt show throughout the UK for almost 20 years and brings an unrivalled reputation and level of skill to his daredevil show. His stunt team demonstrate incredible skill and precision throughout a show that is a thrill to the senses. Feel the ground rumble under your feet with the extreme power and roar of the monster trucks. Hear the twisting metal of the car crashes. Smell the burning rubber of the full throttle motorcycle stunts. See the greatest show on wheels!

Those spectators daring enough to ride in one of the show's mega monster machines have the chance to win a ride in Europe's only ride on monster truck. The truck aptly named 'Slaine' has 10 seats in the back to thrill the lucky winners who dare to enter the competition.

As well as a ride on monster truck there is a second monster truck, "The Bandit" and an adapted tracked vehicle "Thunder Trax", which both cause massive destruction.

Other exciting features of the show involve fire, pyrotechnics and the infamous Sumpy the stunt clown. Sumpy, as always will be bouncing into things and causing trouble wherever he decides to get involved.

Book your tickets at The OoH, The Oamaru i-Site or 0800 4 Ticket.
