Mt. Maunganui Smashes Records

Round 1 of NiBS 2018 smashed all sorts of attendance records, most male entries, most female entries and (well, duh) most total entries for any NiBS event ever. Ever! Go the Mount!

What’s up now, Wellington, Hamilton and Christchurch? The gauntlet has been most enthusiastically thrown down by Rob, Carla & co at Rocktopia. Of course Hangdog is putting on three rounds and if they keep their records of selling out all events they might top the 123 entries of round 1 (register now if you haven’t already).

A tense final saw Erica Gatland, on form from a recent Flock Hill rampage take the Female gold, and Kevin Huser unlocked the cryptic male second final problem for the win.

Huge turnouts in all categories, with the class of ’83 joining the Masters this year giving defending champs Zane Bray and Maree McCandlish something to think about. More female 35+ competitors in round 1 than in all of 2017 combined!

Bring it on, see ya at round 2 June 9th!
