Pongaroa Speed Shear 2012

Pongaroa Speed Shear 2012


A cool fine evening, a good turnout and strong competition; what could be better.

Pongaroa Domain was the venue for the 2012 Pongaroa Speed Shear and what a night it was. Competition ranged from the "cockies" shear through the Weetbix, Beer and Shear triathlon to the evening's climax of the $1,000 Open Shear contest. Well organised and supported with plenty of food and drinks, it was a traditional good night out.

Shearing quality was outstanding with only a small number of clips being declared DQ by the judges.
