Getting Good Help- Whangarei

Here’s a tip for those clubs out there who struggle to get enough man power at their next working bee- tie it in with a training session. That is what the Whangarei MCC did for my latest club coaching day and it worked a treat.


While I was showing the mini riders how to carve a rut, the ditch digger was hard at work making lines for the watering system they are installing.

They are tough too, as Robbie was to prove after a big crash that didn’t hold him back.

Assistant Extraordinaire

Jordan Milsom joined me for the trip, a young guy that has proved himself numerous times as probably the best helper I have ever had. I often consult him for thoughts on where to go next with the training and usually stick to his suggestions as he proves to have a good handle on how to give our students the best value.
