GoFi8ure are proud sponsors of the Morrisons Bush Competition & Campout Weekend. It sounds like it was a great weekend!

A BIG congratulations to Carol Eccles who the Ladies 1st Prize sponsored by GoFi8ure. Well done on coming in 1st!

“Hi Lisa

A big thank-you for your sponsorship over the last weekend for our Morrisons Bush Club Competition & Campout.

We had in the end 14 boats from all over the Lower North Island with 19 driver entries into the events, starting with scrutineering at 8am & completing the events by 3pm with almost perfect river conditions – the southerly on Saturday did not seem to cool any of the competitive nature in the boaters – although there was a fair bit of boat pushing in a couple of the more challenging events.

On Sunday 5 boats made it up to the Gladstone bridge in fairly tricky low river conditions in lovely weather – which capped off a good weekend of camping, BBQing & socialising.

Thanks again,
Grant & Central District Branch of Jet Boating NZ”
