Pack a raincoat for Whanganui

Richard Tregoweth - Wednesday, September 26, 2012

How many Wellingtonians will venture out of the city this weekend to travel North to Whanganui? And we might be in for a shower or two to boot… so pack your raincoats!

The 2012 South Island Regional TCC in Christchurch attracted 32 climbers, Waikato/Bay of Plenty last weekend 40 climbers. Now, the challenge is on for the Wellington Regional?

The Central Districts tree climbers who competed in the Hamilton TCC last weekend produced a sterling effort - Whanganui area locals, Nicky Ward-Allen, Jamie Hartley, Clay Winter and Peter Boyle are the ones to watch this weekend perhaps? Or will one of the Southern city slickers take the title?

A group of Auckland climbers including Shaun Hardman, Dale Thomas and Lin Wah Ling are also traveling down to Whanganui to compete - good practice for the Nationals next month.

The weather forecast for Saturday is showers clearing throughout the day - not enough to dampen spirits one would think.

The 2012 NZ Arbor Husqvarna Wellington Regional TCC is in Kowhai Park, Anzac Parade, Whanganui, Saturday 29 September, gear check 7:30am.
