DATE: Friday 20 April
TIME: 2.00pm – 5.00pm
VENUE: Sky Tower and SKYCITY Plaza
The challenge will commence with a short military ceremony, the raising of the NZ Flag and a haka. The Royal New Zealand Navy Band will also perform. The mission for each team is to retrieve their team flag from the top of the tower!
Starting with a public display of military skills on the SKYCITY Plaza, in relay format, team members will make their way to the top of the SKY Tower mast to retrieve their team flag before abseiling back down to the SKYCITY Plaza!
The Tower De Force will have MC Scotty Stevenson interviewing team members before during and after the challenge and interacting with spectators.
The Challenge will also end with a short military ceremony at around 5.00pm – the lowering of the NZ Flag as the bugle plays ‘The Last Post’.
A short prize giving for the teams will be held at around 6.00pm in Andy’s Burgers and Bar aka “The Green Zone”.
The winning team receives the ‘Tower De Force’ Shield and switches on the ‘Poppy’ that beams onto the SKY Tower until the end of ANZAC Day.
It will be an exciting not to be missed action packed spectacle!
