Diggers happy, but Big Dig event loses money Scattered field: The turnout might have been low but the diggers were still keen at the Otaki Big Dig. Happy diggers: Amanda Watson, 9, and brother Blane Watson, 8, of Otaki, get their hands sandy looking for prize tokens at the Big Dig on Sunday. By JOEL MAXWELL The annual Otaki Big Dig failed to turn a profit for the town s Birthright after the threat of bad weather scared away diggers on Sunday. Office administrator Tracy O Neil said about 90 people registered for the event, a number which was way down on last year. Birthright, which helps single-parent families in Otaki, lost about $400 on the event which included two dig- ging arenas this year. But we still have prizes left over and we still have sausages so we re going to have sausage sizzles and try to recoup our loss -- make a bit of a profit. The small turnout was bad news for Birthright but good news for people who arrived to dig for prize tokens in the sand in front of the surf club. Even though we didn t make any money, everybody had a really great time and just about everybody went away with a prize, Mrs O Neil said. She said the extra digging arena for under-fives, an addition made after suggestions from last year s diggers, worked well. Making things even better for the Big Dig competitors was the fact the 90 tokens, redeemed for prizes, were not as deep and easier to find than previously. Mrs O Neil said the group has another fundraiser coming up in late January or early February. We get a lot of furniture donated and a lot of it is excess at the moment so we re going to have a big garage sale -- and a sausage sizzle -- and we re going to try to raise a bit of money. Despite this year s loss, Birthright plans to run the Big Dig again next year in early January.
