A huge congrats to Wanganui Barb

A huge congrats to Wanganui Barbell member Jennie for taking out a win in her class at her second official three lift competition at the Bledisbro powerlifting competition held in Wellington. Jennie took out a PB on all three lifts and won her class. Her second win in as many official competitions! 105kg squat 70kg bench 145kg deadlift (she fought for a huge 150kg which she lifted but unfortunately for red lights for a technical error - she will smash this at the next comp!) 320kg total Jennie

It's today! We're excited! See you soon!

There's another tree down just above 32 Wairere Road. Road is still passable but take care as you go.

A tree has fallen on Rangitatau East Road, about two km from State Highway 3. A roading crew is attending but in the meantime there is no access between SH3 and Brunswick Road.
