Surprise in store for Wajax teams

By Jack Zorab, Wajax 2020 coordinator It's now just over a week until 25 teams from across Otago/Southland come together to compete in the 50th Wajax competition, here in Omarama. Preparations are almost complete and we're looking forward to putting on a great weekend for everyone. Being the 50th anniversary, it was important that we made this year memorable so we're pleased to announce one of our main sponsors as WATERAX, the company that makes the modern day Wajax pump, based in Canada! They reached out to us a number of months ago after seeing our event online and it's a testament to the competition that they want to be involved. Waterax marketing director Gabriella Gabasi said; 'We’re thrilled to be part of the 50th edition of the Omarama competition and to be involved with your great event that’s been using our pumps for so many years'. Through them, every competitor on the day will receive a Wajax 2020 commemorative competition coin that they can keep to show their grand kids when they compete in Wajax 2070. The Omarama Fire Brigade have been working tirelessly to bring everything together for the big day and we'd like to thank all the locals and businesses that have helped get us here. We hope to see you at the Countrytime on the Saturday March 14 to watch teams go head to head in what promises to be an exciting competition. @wemovewater... >>> continue reading <<<
