QUALITY BR ANDS | EXPERT ADVICE | NZ OWNED & OPERATED | PROFESSIONAL DELIVERY & INSTALLATION TRADE-INS WELCOME | EASY PAYMENT OPTIONS | EVERY THING FOR YOUR HOME | 27 STORES THROUGHOUT NZ Shearing contest at Marton The North Island Shearing and Woolhandling competition organised by Rangitikei Shearing Sports will be held in the Marton Memorial Hall on Febru- ary 4, starting at 8.30am. With the World Championships in Masterton early in March there will be overseas competitors along with New Zealand s top shearers and woolhand- lers competing for top prize money. There will be five shearing grades and four woolhandling grades, plus local trophies. Last year there were 111 shearers and 47 woolhandlers, up in numbers on the previous five years. Total prize money is more than $7000. The Marton competition is one of the largest in the lower North Island and is included in the New Zealand Shears Circuit, the North Island Woolhandler of the Year and the Brannigan Senior and Intermediate Shearing Circuit. Shearers points from several shows are accumulated to find the winner of the circuits. Local competitors compete for several trophies. The most sought after trophy is the Peter Coleman Memorial Trophy for the shearer with the best quality points in the heats of all grades. Mr Coleman was one of the organisers of the first Marton Shearing competition in 1963 and this trophy was donated by his wife and family. The Betty Rakatairi Trophy for the cleanest local pen in the heats (outside points only) is also challenging for the local shearers. During the day there will be more than 1000 sheep shorn which are sup- plied by Mark Godfrey, Phil Soler and Phil Simpson. Hold on and ride 'em cowboy Hanging on: A bullfighter prepares to attract the bull away if rider Cameron Wenn loses his grip at the Parklee Bull Ride last year. Although dressed as clowns the bullfighters have a serious job, and are essential to the safety of the sport. Photo: BOBBIE NICHOLLS A tonne of solid muscle can do a lot of damage if a bull rider gets trampled and it is the job of the bullfighter to ensure little more than the rider s pride is damaged if he is thrown from the bull s back within eight seconds. After the Parklee Bull Ride on Saturday, there are sure to be a few sore muscles among the riders. But it is the adrenaline rush of attempting to stay on the bull s back which brings these young men back time and again. Adrenaline is also high among the audience who have been pack- ing the terraces at Parklee Bull Riding Arena, at the end of Junc- tion Road, north of Kimbolton, for the last eight years. The crowd is bigger each year and the support of the community in sponsorship is greater than ever. The atmosphere is family fun, with the Parklee crew and Bull Riding New Zealand working to give everyone an enjoyable experi- ence. Regulars need no introduction to the attractions of bull riding but for first-timers, there is no problem in following the action, as the profes- sional commentator, seated on the fence, keeps everyone up with what is going on in the arena. He introduces the riders and the bulls -- both stars of the compe- tition. During the eight-second ride, judges watch both the rider and the bull. If the rider completes an eight-second ride he is awarded a score out of a possible 50 points, and the bucking bull is also scored out of a possible 50 points. If the judges consider the bull did not buck enough, the rider will get another chance in the go-round. There are two sections of compe- tition, the first being amateur riders endeavouring to earn the points to graduate to competing for the big money in the open section. The organisers are offering locals the chance to try their hand at bull riding. Less scary rides will be offered by Costa Plenty4x4Club, a bar will support local rugby and a ram ride is on offer for children. The gates open this year at 10am and the three hours of bull riding action gets under way at 11am.
