New Zealand Dog Agility Championship

I go for a brief look. The modest though enthusiastic band of spectators is as much a participant in the event as are the talented pairings in the rings. Lots of fun it seems. The rain returns as I join the suitably wet weather clad throng. There are banners, silly wigs and much whooping and hollering. The field; competitors, officials and spectators move from ring to ring in a predetermined order for what appears increasingly complex snakes & ladder obstacle courses. One pair have their own Pippi Longstocking cheerleaders. The subtleties of the obstacle courses are not lost on the casual observer – the missteps particularly – that split second decision to ladder rather than snake instinctively shared with the entire field in a collective sigh.

FreshChoice Leamington 9/10/2012

And no, I haven’t gone all advertorial.

The opening of a third supermarket within a town of 16/17000 population (discounting those living in our not inconsiderable hinterland) will have significant effects upon the patterns of movement, commerce and socialising within Cambridge. FreshChoice Leamington opened at 10 this morning, Tuesday, the 9th of October 2012 to speeches, a ribbon cutting, bagpipes and refreshments. Located in Leamington, the southern or western half of Cambridge (depending on your point of reference – the Waikato River or your compass), the enterprise is a franchise within the Australian owned Progressive Enterprises group. Oops @leamington Twitter handle; Sorry, that user is suspended – just saying!
