Competitions

“I never lose. I either win or learn.” ― Nelson Mandela

Competition is good

On a personal level it motivates, drives success, it challenges, and recognises achievement. In other areas of life, competition guides innovation, creativity, and efficiency gains.

2021 Regional Skill Competitions

Regional competitions are completed. Its been a challenging year arranging regional skill competitions with many regionals impacted by lockdowns and restrictions. A huge thankyou to all volunteers, supporters and venue hosts for their efforts in planning and arranging competitions. Despite these challenges we are very pleased that we managed to hold four regional competitions and thanks to all involved. Thanks to all those competitors who entered, and congratulations to those that were able to compete.

2021 National Skill Competitions

Our regional competitions for this year are completed so the focus is on our upcoming two day national competitions. Due to restrictions on event size and potential lockdown disruption, we have decided to not go ahead with a combined National competition, where instead we will run single skill national competitions. As a result of recent lockdowns we have rescheduled some competition dates and postponed others. Our latest national skill competitions and dates are:

Welding: 4th and 5th of December 2021 at Toi Ohomai in Tauranga
Aircraft Maintenance: 4th and 5th of March 2022, at the Airforce Museum in Christchurch
