Some of the crew from Wildman enter their first 6hr adventure race as 'Team Wildman' - not what you'd normally find us doing! Was a fantastic event and the boys smashed it out. Big thanks to our supporters - Huntech Clothing, Hunting & Fishing Thames and our families.
It's now official - our first Father & Daughter weekend is happening! We've only just advertised it and already we've got lots of interest - however, it's first in, first served!
Welcome to our Autumn Newsletter - trust everyone's had a great summer! Over here in the Coromandel, it seems summer just keeps on giving - I've just had a surf, and I'm still wearing boardshorts the water's so warm! But to be fair, it was a pretty wet, miserable start ... NIWA's predictions of an El Niño summer (hot, dry with drought conditions on the east coast) was so far off it wasn't even funny! We've had more grass (and rain!) than we know what to do with (although the cows are fat and happy), and one of the best summers of surf in years! So I'm not complaining ...
For those who aren't aware, most of our programmes contain a first-aid component/module, expertly delivered by Henry (aka Crafty) - our resident fixer-upperer.

Wildman is stoked to announce that Huntech Outdoors has agreed to come on board as a sponsor! Managing Director, David Icke, is keen to support our work and sees some exciting synergy between Huntech and Wildman. Huntech is one of the oldest outdoor clothing manufacturing companies in New Zealand, and one of the first to work with fleece. Like the majority of such businesses, their main manufacturing now happens offshore, however, an important point of difference is that Huntech actually own their factory in China. This gives them much more control over their product and their staff's working environment.
We've locked in another Wildman Father & Son Weekend! And this one promises to be the best yet!
