The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME - – Richard

The big ‘heat’ con­tin­ues. Though if Manawatu Stan­dard farm­ing reporter Jill Gal­loway is on form, that could change this week. When­ever Jill writes a story about drought-like con­di­tions, as sure as eggs are eggs, it’ll rain.

So, if the news­pa­per’s res­i­dent rain­maker writes her thing, the dry warm stuff we’ve been en­joy­ing is due to end at... Wai­tangi Week­end.

And that’ll be a pity. Be­cause this week­end is a big­gie.

For starters, there’s the cel­e­bra­tion of our na­tional day at Te Manawa, the mon­ster auc­tion for the Manawatu branch of the Child Can­cer Foun­da­tion at Ron­gotea, the Gypsy Fair, and the Su­per­stock Teams Chal­lenge, which has al­ready at­tracted a ca­pac­ity crowd to the Cen­tral En­ergy Trust Arena, aka the Oval.

Still, the Ron­gotea and District Lions say that not once in 45 years has it rained on their auc­tion day. Let’s trust that those Ron­gotea rain-stay­ers are right.
