Hi, my name is Peter Mooney and Iâ€™d just like to introduce myself to members of this forum. For the past 35 years Iâ€™ve lived and breathed rugby in Hawkeâ€™s Bay NZ. You could say itâ€™s my passion, but more recently I have been asked by our tourism and economic development agency, Venture Hawkeâ€™s Bay, to act as a regional spokesperson for the Rugby World Cup 2011. This role brings together a life-long career in radio broadcasting and event management. Hopefully, the members of this forum will benefit from some of the local insights I can give to anyone who is thinking about travel to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup...plus it is a chance to share some thoughts about our great game.
