New Zealand Lions Promotion
30 Jun 2005
The promotional tour for The LIONS in New Zealand, to correspond with the current Lions tour, is now well underway. Already 2 events, organised by David Hedley and his team and attended by members of the Genesis team, have taken place.
In Dunedin,Ian Robertson the renowned commentator and journalist, entertained a crowd of around 60 local businessmen and rugby fans at the Robert Burns Hotel.
In Christchurch, on the Thursday before the 1st Test, a formal dinner with 150 attending was held at the Grand Chancellor Hotel. Again,Ian Robertson provided some of the entertainment as well as acting as MC. He was joined by Gavin Hastings, ex-Scotland and British Lions captain, who enlightened the crowd on his views of the Tour and gave his support to our book.
At both events we received great support for the book and took several advance orders.
Two further formal dinner events are to be held in Wellington and Auckland over the next couple of weeks,where the guest of honour will be the legendary Willie John McBride. Watch this space for more Tour news.
