IT DIDN’T SEEM THAT LONG AGO THAT WE were start­ing the com­pe­ti­tion for 2018, now we are on the home­ward run to the end of the year.

Day­light sav­ing gives us longer day­light hours, later into the even­ing. The days are warmer and its no­tice­able the pos­i­tiv­ity and smiles crank back into life af­ter win­ter.

How­ever, we also have to re­mind our­selves that while it’s a great time of the year, it is im­por­tant to en­sure we all get ad­e­quate rest and keep a fo­cus on a safe and pro­duc­tive run into the end of the year.

In do­ing this, our as­ses­sors are out and about, get­ting amongst crews and chal­leng­ing every­one to bring out their best every day. Hey, it’s what we should all be striv­ing to do, re­gard­less of whether there’s a com­pe­ti­tion or not.

Indi­ca­tions are, we are in for very close re­sults again this year – that close that we can’t pick how the re­sults will turn out, other than ex­cel­lent.

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.

Be alert! Work­ing close to ma­chines on the skid site raises the dan­ger level, es­pe­cially when work­ing with a saw and wear­ing ear muffs.

It’s a busy time of year, so every­one needs to be fo­cused on safety.
