The Riverhead Rampage Committee is stoked to be able to bring you another year of Riverhead Rampage, especially in the context of the global COVID-19 Pandemic. To keep things safe and allow us to continue running events, we need to be aware of the following things at COVID-19 Alert Level 1.
- If you or someone you are in close contact with have symptoms of cold or flu, are unwell or who are waiting on test results for COVID-19 you must not attend the 2021 Riverhead Rampage. Please, be considerate of others and stay away.
- If anyone (or if anyone close to you) has been overseas or in self isolation within the last two weeks prior to the event you must not attend the 2021 Riverhead Rampage.
- If you are an at-risk person or you live with or have regular contact with an at-risk person(s) then you must not attend the Riverhead Rampage.
- The Ministry of Health requires all gatherings to have a system to record and retain the contact details of all people involved in or attending the gathering. To make sure that Riverhead Rampage can comply with this, we encourage participants to enter any event via our website at least 24 hours before the start. There will be on-the-day entry as well. Spectators and non-participants will be required to register their attendance on the day also. This information will be available to the Ministry of Health for 4 weeks after the event.
- There will be a contract tracing QR code poster to scan on arrival FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS AND SPECTATORS. The government tracing app can be downloaded at https://tracing.covid19.govt.nz/
- There will be hand sanitizer available at various locations around the event base. Please use these as required.
The Ministry of Health requires all gatherings to have a system to record and retain the contact details of all people involved in or attending the gathering. For participants this will be through the entry process but you may be required to sign in on the day also.
So the Riverhead Rampage can comply with this, all participants are encouraged to enter via our website at least 24 hours before the start. On-the-day entry is allowed, however details of participants shall likewise be recorded. Spectators and non-participants will be required to register their attendance on the day also. This information will be available to the Ministry of Health for 4 weeks after the event.
BE AWARE!! By entering, participants are agreeing to allow these details to be released to the Ministry of Health within the 4 weeks after the event.
We will use the Ministry of Health’s NZ COVID Tracer app as our Contact Tracing method – you will scan a QR code displayed at the venue on arrival to register your attendance. Ideally you’ll have downloaded the app before you arrive.
Riverhead Rampage in Level 2 or above
As Riverhead Rampage is run as a not-for-profit charity, and is a once-off event per year, should we move into Level 2 or above prior to the event and remain in Level 2 or above at the date of 6th March 2021 then we will cancel the event for that year. Riverhead Rampage will recommence in 2022.
Should we move into Level 2 or above prior to Riverhead Rampage 2021 taking place, and return to Level 1 a week prior to 6th March 2021 (28th FEBRUARY 2021) then the event will take place as usual.
Refunds for event cancellations due to COVID-19
As per the Riverhead Rampage Refund Policy, as Riverhead Rampage is run as a not-for-profit charity event, with 100% of the proceeds of the event going to Riverhead Primary School, we do not offer a refund or transfer for this event. This applies to the event of COVID-19 cancellation as this is an event that is beyond the organising committee’s control.
