Que Pasa en Cheltenham Beach?

The Speculator likes to think it has a reasonable handle on what is going on around Devonport, so it is with some humility that it asks the question; what is happening on Cheltenham Beach?

The Speculator’s Cheltenham correspondent reports that what looks like an obstacle course appears to have been set up on the length of the beach. None of the bemused walkers on the beach that The Speculator spoke to have a clue what it is for.

We are awaiting a response from the navy, but could it be the Auckland Council planning on putting Devonport residents through their paces?

    Strange coloured circles and ritual structures? Marks in the sand? Kids running around doing unusual things? Perhaps, amigas, it is worth noting (de pasada), that it was Beltane on May 1st…

    No se, amigo!

    I saw the remains of another one on the pathway from Hanlon Cres down to the duck pond.

    I have seen this before, Several “leaders” with a group of teens – who look like they are on a course of remediation – come and have great fun extending them selves on the physical course – pre set up. They bring food and whanau and really get a kick out of the competition. I watched this two years ago – I bet they ached the next day. All good stuff.
