National Fencing Championships confirmed for Fieldays 2014

National Fencing Championships confirmed for Fieldays 2014

The New Zealand National Fencing Championships are to return to the 2014 Fieldays, held on 11 -14 June. The National Championships are a joint venture with New Zealand Fencing Competitions (NZFC) as organisers and Fieldays as the host venue and consist of four main competitions which will showcase New Zealand’s top fencers, in a match of skill, speed and endurance.

Fencing is an essential element within farming communities and has been a part of Fieldays from the beginning. The National Championships are known as the premier fencing competition in New Zealand and are highly regarded as the pinnacle in fencing excellence with a stronghold for maintaining traditions in agricultural fencing systems.

The competitions consist of the Bill Schuler Novice Round final, the Wiremark® Golden Pliers® Singles Championship, the Fieldays Silver Spades Doubles Championship and the Fieldays Silver Spades doubles training institutes competition. These will be held on respective days through Wednesday to Saturday in the Fencing Competition Area at Fieldays 2014.

The Wiremark Golden Pliers Singles Championship combines fencing finesse with sheer tenacity; it’s a competition of strategy and requires an eye for detail. The Fieldays Silver Spades is a pairs teams event with many of the competitor combinations developing their team work over many years. A positive sign for the industry is the number of younger competitors realising the attraction of competitions and the valuable aid it provides to their fencing businesses in learning techniques and keeping up with the latest products.

Sponsors play a vital role in the competitions and the sponsors of the 2013 New Zealand National Fencing Championships predominantly supported Fieldays as a venue for hosting these national competitions. Sponsors enjoyed exposure to nationwide attendance of both the public and industry organisations, with a number of international visitors also attending.

NZFC was formed in 2013 as a national organising body for fencing competitions. They form an independent group that oversee fencing competitions in New Zealand, valuing the historic traditions and people that have helped develop fencing to the standard it is at today.
NZFC are now calling for entries for the fencing competitions at Fieldays. Entry forms are available online from the Fieldays website and via the NZFC page of the Fencing Contractors Association NZ website. Otherwise contact Kathy Newdick on 07 8956899 or by email on newdickwk@xtra.co.nz. Entries close May 25th 2014.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
