    Hi All,

    Just a little update. Plenty of prizes are coming in now for competitors at the 2015 Hihitahi Challenge. We are a little short on competitors at this stage though so if you are thinking of coming along I completely recommend you do so. If you know someone else that might be interested just put them in touch with me and we'll see if we can sort them out.

    Ok, am just sending out the location details to those that have been in touch. If you are intending to come along and do not received an email or PM from me today with the location details then you need to get in touch with me.

    Organisation is going well, in fact the planning is coming together great at the moment - Malcolm and I will be finalising the course and half setting it up this weekend. Entries have picked up a little but ideally we still need a few more. Anyone keen just get in touch. We have a few junior competitors this year as well which is awesome to see - of course they will not be eligible for the rum or wine prizes!

    Prizes are coming in from sponsors now. Almost all of the sponsors are wholesale companies and include: Beretta NZ, Swazi Clothing, NZ Ammo Company, Belmont Ammunition, Steve's Wholesale, CR Pain, Dead Eye Dicks, Kilwell Sports, and Malcolm and Simon Gillice. Couple of others that also might be sending prizes along include Sportways Distributers, Outdoor Brands, and DPT Machinists.

    There will also be a trophy for the top individual competitor this year - made from a bit of local Kaikawaka.

    Looking forward to the day, but it'll be a slow plod for yours truly I think. Hope the weather cools a bit.

    A beautiful trophy that the eventual winner can be very proud of. I hope we see some of the top all rounder hunters/ outdoorsmen and women compete strongly in the event this year. Good on you and Malcolm for setting this up.

    We shall see @Woody, got a few competitors - I suspect there might be a couple of extra locals that will turn up on the day. Even a few juniors coming along as well. Not all competitors are sticking strictly to the rules (assisted movement, competing as a team, etc.) and this is fine (within reason), it just means these competitors won't be eligible for the trophy.

    Course looks good though, certainly sufficiently different to last year. Other than a couple of shoot stages that are very similar to last year basically every other scored stage has changed. I am just putting together the maps and score cards over the next day or two and we will be all ready to go! Looking forward to it.

    BTW, still open entry spots available if someone wants to come along - just get in touch!

    Works a bas%#d really - pays the bills but gets in the way far too often of things I want to do... Some one once told me to work to live, don't live to work...

    Gonna be a fun day though, I am printing score cards, maps, and observation stand photos at the moment
    Not really sure I want to give that trophy away... kinda like the look of it.

    Even the weather looks like it might play ball as long as we are gone by Monday!

    D-day is near boys and girls just packed all my kit, crashing on the couch at Kiwi39's tonight for an early morning start...

    See you all bright and early, looking forward to this one.
