top spot

New Zealand Logger - - Contents - Brad Atkinson, of Man­goihe 5, was firste­qual in Me­chan­i­cal Pro­cess­ing in the Pe­riod One har­vest­ing re­sults. Bren­dan Hawkins, of Man­goihe 3, was sec­ond in shov­el­ling in the Pe­riod One har­vest­ing re­sults. Henare Ke­mara, of Man­goihe 5, was first in Ma­chine O

I DON’T PLAY GOLF BUT IT WAS IN­TER­EST­ING to watch how many play­ers in the re­cent US Open were all within a cou­ple of shots of the lead. In a lot of cases, it’s a mat­ter of cen­time­tres be­tween whether a shot goes in the hole or not.

Our com­pe­ti­tion is no dif­fer­ent – quite of­ten the dif­fer­ence be­tween be­ing at the top or back a few places is sim­ply in the de­tail of an ac­tiv­ity.

And yes, we score as­sess­ments ac­cord­ingly as it would be un­fair to over­look the de­tail be­tween par­tic­i­pants if that is the dif­fer­ence be­tween be­ing num­ber one and num­ber two.

Ul­ti­mately, we want to be in the po­si­tion of hav­ing par­tic­i­pants hit­ting 100% across the board – how pos­i­tively would that re­flect on those in­di­vid­u­als, their crews and our in­dus­try as a whole.

Give us that prob­lem!

In the mean­time, re­mem­ber, it is quite of­ten the de­tail that makes the dif­fer­ence – the ball is in your court.

In this is­sue we con­tinue to shine a light on the achieve­ments of more of our top per­form­ers from the lat­est round of re­sults.

Cel­e­brate the achieve­ment, but don’t take your eye off the ball at work!

Spon­sors – They don’t have to do this but they choose to!

Awe­some com­pa­nies, awe­some peo­ple and awe­some sup­port!

They back you and your work­mates to suc­ceed as pro­fes­sion­als, so why wouldn’t you sup­port them.

They be­lieve in what we do and what you do. So a big on­go­ing thank you to our Strate­gic Part­ners – STIHL and NZ Log­ger and spon­sor SWAZI.

The best way to keep our in­dus­try work­ing is to get out and sup­port those busi­nesses that sup­port New Zealand.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing Com­pa­nies

This com­pe­ti­tion wouldn’t be what it is with­out our par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies.
