Winning with style


REVISITING THE PAST: Relay winner Jayden Butcher (19) crosses the finish line first for his team “The Slaughter Board Assistants” as part of the revived relay at the Alliance Pukeuri annual picnic in conjunction with the Oamaru Harness Racing Club meeting at the Oamaru Racecourse yesterday.

Alliance Pukeuri personnel manager Gary Byrne said they reintroduced the relay, which used to be a big part of the picnic, last year for the centennial celebrations and hoped to continue it each year.

The relay was contested by seven teams representing different departments.

The other members of the winning team were Ben Frew, Sam Thompson, Chaydon Wells, Kurt Brown and Sean Latimer.

The picnic is put on by the Waitaki Pukeuri Sports Bodies Inc.
