The 110th annual Ohingaiti/Hunterville Picnic Sports Day was held on Wellington Anniversary Day with a huge turnout of district people and visitors.

There was a swag of entries in the competitions ranging from children riding rams, horse competitions, wood chopping, terrier racing, tug of war, steer riding, novelty events, shearing and sheepdog trialling.

The sheepdog trial show ring event was won by Wendy Schmidt and Dream with 98pts; Paul Evans Bryte 97.75, 2 and Paul Evans Dee 97.50, 3.

Intermediate: P Evans Bryte 97.75, 1; Helen Worsfold Coal 97, 2 and Helen Worsfold Eve 96, 3. Intermediate/maiden Helen Worsfold Coal 97.

The sheep responded well to the smoother-moving dog.
