East Coast success down south

Allen Irwin from Te Karaka (pictured above left in action at the titles) featured for a couple of days in the top seven in the zig zag hunt.
Ned George was another local on the zig zag course.
Annie Flood was there too.
The title drew more female competitors than previously, among them Stephanie Tweed (South Island), Samantha Shaw (Gisborne), Libby Masefield (South Island) and Rebecca Baynes (Wairoa), who made the New Zealand straight hunt final, where she finished runner up for the national title.

THE region’s dog trial competitors gave a good account of themselves this week at the South Island New Zealand championships in Blenheim.

About a dozen of them featured at different times on the leaderboards in the four events.
