Per­fect Woman to have sense of fun

But there are ob­sta­cles along way

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS - By CHE BAKER

Fil­let­ing a fish and groom­ing a male have been part of the pre­lim­i­nary rounds to find this year’s Per­fect Woman.

For the eleventh time the hunt has be­gun to find the Speights Per­fect Woman with heats held in Haast, Gore and Ta­panui.

Event or­gan­iser Bren­dan Quirke said ‘‘the main thing about the com­pe­ti­tion is a real sense of fun’’.

‘‘We would love to have as many lo­cal con­tes­tants as pos­si­ble.,’’ Quirke said.

‘‘If you get your en­try in now you will be guar­an­teed a place.’’

The fi­nal round will be held in Wanaka at the Bul­lock Bar at Labour Week­end.

The com­pe­ti­tion would start with 40 con­tes­tants and the top 10 will com­pete on Oc­to­ber 26 for the $1000 cash prize to be given to the over­all win­ner.

This year $1000 in prizes would also be give to the best support crew.

About 10 woman com­peted in the Haast round and 20 in Gore.

Events in­cluded fil­let­ing a fish, speed pool, guess the beer and find­ing a male and cut­ting their hair.

While the fi­nal event had some sta­ple tasks, par­tic­i­pants would not know the sched­ule un­til the day. Past events have in­volved jet boat driv­ing, in­stalling fence posts and rev­ers­ing a mo­tor­bike and trailer.

Other heats would be held in Te Anau, Win­ton and, hope­fully, Man­iototo. Three woman from each area would au­to­mat­i­cally earn a spot in the fi­nal.

Par­tic­i­pants were re­minded the com­pe­ti­tion was not a beauty pageant and it was all about hav­ing fun and rais­ing funds for the char­ity Can­Live.
