Shears event draws near


Entries for the 2013 Waimate Shears closed yesterday, with about 70 people entered for this weekend’s event.

When the Oamaru Mail spoke to the Waimate Shears executive officer Eileen Smith yesterday, there were 68 entered.

Although some sections were near full capacity, she hoped they would have received more by the end of the day.

“They are notorious for getting their entries in late,” she laughed.

This weekend’s event is the Waimate Shears’ 46th year and has attracted some big names.
