Hot com­pe­ti­tion among silvi crews

New Zealand Logger - - Top Spot - Ross Mar­shall, of Otau­tau Con­trac­tors, was sec­ond-equal in the lat­est Waste-toThin re­sults.

WE TALKED ABOUT HOW CLOSE THE com­pe­ti­tion was among har­vest­ing crews in the last is­sue and now Thin-to-Waste teams have fol­lowed with their own tight tus­sle.

Only these re­sults high­lighted that it can be a mat­ter of mil­lime­tres rather than cen­time­tres be­tween re­sults.

It also puts to rest the tho­ery that we can’t have more than one par­tic­i­pant scor­ing a per­fect 100% re­sult – we’ve al­ways said that we score it as we see it.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our top per­form­ers across the first round of as­sess­ments in the Thin-to-Waste com­pe­ti­tion. As the re­sults chart shows, you can­not af­ford to be com­pla­cent be­cause there are a bunch of peo­ple right on your shoul­ders in the run-through to the end of the year.

And it’s not just those right be­hind – the tail-en­ders have closed right up on the top per­form­ers and that has to be great for our in­dus­try. The trick, how­ever, is to main­tain that level of per­for­mance day-in, day-out over the whole year.

Cel­e­brate the achieve­ment, but don’t take your eye off the ball and al­low stan­dards to drop.

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.

We un­der­stand the com­mit­ment it takes from them to be part of Top Spot and value their on­go­ing sup­port and feed­back.
