Kate Maddison has written an excellent account of the Wanaka Nationals that Andy and Kris went to in February 2000. The Wellington contigent of Colin, Laurie, Andy and Kris managed to come last equal! It wasn't helped by crash landing in matagouri at frequent intervals. (Andy won a prize for landing in the stuff three times in a row). Matagouri has thorns that makes boxthorn look tame!
