Avery completes Tasman double

World champion shearer Paul Avery completed a Tasman double when he won the Nelson A and P open shearing title on Saturday.

But, venturing on a second trip south from his farm near Stratford, Avery didn't have it as easy as when he won the Marlborough Show title a fortnight earlier.

Wanganui shearer Jerome McCrea set the pace in the 20 sheep final, which he finished in 18min 5sec, beating Avery off the board by 38 seconds. With McRea losing valuable quality points outside and having to settle for third, well-travelled Jason Win, of Ikamatua, was runner-up almost two points behind Avery.

On Sunday Renwick shearer Chris Jones won the Top of the South open final, while Brenda Kinzett, of Wakefield, completed a rare double by adding the junior woolhandling title to the intermediate shearing title she won on Saturday.

Simon Nathan: No Ordinary In-Laws

The title of this short memoir by Keith Ovenden is misleading – it would be better called “Bill, Shirley and me” as it is an account of Ovenden’s memories of his parents-in-law, Bill Sutch and Shirley Smith.

All three participants are (or were) eloquent, strongly-opinionated intellectuals who have made significant contributions to different aspects of New Zealand life. Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
