FMG Young Farmer of the Year Practical Day 2017

from 7:00 to 15:00

The FMG Young Farmer of the Year is New Zealand’s Ultimate Rural Challenge inspiring excellence, showcasing innovation and growing human capabilities.

The FMG Young Farmer of the Year sets a benchmark of excellence for young people in the agricultural industry to achieve and aspire to. It is also an opportunity for agriculture to celebrate and reward its achievers and to showcase the industry to the wider community.

The Contest portrays New Zealand agriculture as a professional, credible industry that provides a wealth of career opportunities and remains the cornerstone of the nation’s economy.

Alongside the Young Farmer of the year are competitions for TeenAg members and AgriKids. These competitions are designed to mimic the FMG Young Farmer of the Year contest but adapted for the age and skill levels of the kids involved, kick-starting interest in the primary industry from a young age. This competition shows the top three AgriKids groups from each region as they compete throughout the day against their peers.

This year for the first time ever will be the Trans-Tasman Challenge, where 2016 FMG Young Farmer of the Year Athol New will battle it out against Tasmanian Young Farmer of the Year Marty McConnon.

Bring along the family for a fun day out, with lots of action and fun filled activities for the kids. There will be coffee for the parents and plenty of food.

Check out our website for more details.

from 18:00 to 0:30

Rub shoulders alongside VIPs, enjoy a complimentary refreshment on arrival, followed by free refreshments on the table, a sumptuous three-course dinner, the wonders of Te Radar as he hosts the show and an incredible live band to dance the night away too.

This will be a fantastic evening but get your tickets early as it’s bound to sell out!

The Awards will be followed by a Celebratory Ball which provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate the success of the 49th FMG Young Farmer of the Year Contest Champion and all that the 2017 Contest season entailed.

The Surgery Sprints

from 8:00 to 16:30

The Surgery Sprint Series has been a feature of the local club racing calendar for 20+ years now and for the last twelve years has been generously sponsored by The Surgery.

As far as motorsport goes it is fairly low-key, so is a great entry point for those who want to try their hand at motor racing. The format is simple: a pair of cars are released onto the track at 10-second intervals and they complete 3 laps from a flying start. Points are awarded according to the times each driver achieves and these points go towards individual and club prizes.

The requirements are also basic: road legal tyres, fire resistant overalls, helmet, a fire extinguisher fitted to the car with a metal bracket, a roll cage for all open cars and a Motorsport NZ Licence (day licences are available). Contact Surgery Sprints for the entry fee.

You don’t have to have a rocket car to enjoy yourself on a race track and slower, unmodified cars are more likely to score more points. So whether you have a Herald, a TR7 V8 or something you’d rather not admit to, come and discover the thrill of motorsport for yourself.
