Put your thinking cap on. How much oil do you think this whalepot would hold? Worked it out? Then come into the Kāpiti Coast Museum any time between 1-4pm any Friday, Saturday, Sunday in June and July to see the whalepot and fill in your entry form in the Great Museum Whalepot Competition.
Chairman of the Museum Management Committee Allan Carley says it might take a mathematician or it might just be a lucky guess. “Anyway, it’ll be fun to have a go. We are putting a small bottle of oil alongside to give the hopefuls a better chance.”
Entry forms are at the Museum which is open Friday-Sunday 1-4p.m. One entry per person; forms to be completed in the Museum and ‘posted’ in the red mail box at the door.
There will be prizes in primary and secondary school student and adult categories. The winner will be announced and prizes presented at 3pm on Sunday July 28 at the Museum.
