Maadi cup

Today we have been doing writing about the  Maadi  cup. At the moment there are over 2000 rowers from secondary schools all over New Zealand  in Twizel  for the Maddi cup. so Twizel's   population is more than double at the moment .We have made  posters and singlets for every school rowing  and we're putting  them up around Twizel  town square, in the shop windows. The Maadi Cup originated in Egypt during WW2, when members of the second NZEF based at Maadi Camp, competed in regattas against local Egyptian rowing clubs.
