The third White Hill Wind
Farm Classic bike ride
and run took place near
Mossburn last Saturday
with 193 entrants in the
various event categories.
Event director John Douglas
said although weather was
rough leading up to the
event it cleared up in time
for the various races.
The numbers were down
on last year but he put
that down to other events
also taking place that
One change that was received positively
was the kids' finish line at the same place
as the adults' line - they really appreciated
it and all participants had a good time, Mr
"We still get so many rave reviews about
the experience of getting up under the
wind turbines," he said. "Although it is
challenging people find it immensely
rewarding as well."
Funds raised went towards Northern
Southland Music and movement pre-school
group and the Mossburn Pre-school.
A donation also went towards Hannah
Wilkins - for her Duke of Edinburgh trip to
Kathmandu next month - who last week
decided to donate her profits from the
Dave Upfold hypnotist show tickets to the
Canterbury earthquake appeal.
"We were pleased to help somebody so
positive," Mr Douglas said.
They were also grateful for Meridian
Energy's return as major sponsor,
with the continuation of the event
now assured for the next two years.

The Wonder of Sex will be explored in Te
Anau next week as Dunedin's Fortune
Theatre presents the outrageous two-man
English comedy act on a southern tour.
Actors Phil Grieve and Keith Adams take
on the dexterous roles of sex counsellors,
the pompous Desmond Olivier Dingle and
his toupee-wearing sidekick Raymond
Box, serving up a diet of malapropisms
and miscalculations that the promotional
material promises will deliver an evening of
"hilarious misguided mayhem".
Director Lisa Warrington said she'd wanted
to direct this "enormously fun" play for
nearly 10 years.
"It's a light-hearted, comical investigation
of 'the history of sex' conducted by two
hapless, charming and very unlikely self-
appointed experts on the subject," she said.
Unlikely they might be but counsel they do,
attempting to re-enact legendary moments
from the coital history of humankind
and taking the audience on a probing
investigation into the fascinating world
of sex, including re-enactments of many
famed sexual encounters such as Lady
Chatterley's Lover, Casanova, The Kama
Sutra and the Orgies of Rasputin -- not to
mention a whole host of marital tips and
answers to all your sexual problems.
The play will be staged at the Fiordland
Events Centre at 7.30pm on March 18.
Tickets are available from Fab & Finesse.
