Flashback 015

Photobucket

For a change here is a selection of pit photos from one specific event. All of these photos were taken at the Palmerston North Superstock teams meeting from the 2000 season, the year that the Nelson Tigers defeated Tony Mac's Wildcats in the final. Other memorable events from that meeting were the bone-jarring Shane Penn hit on 10c Brian Johnson and the controversial removal of Doug Holmes after bringing on the red lights in the semi final against Nelson. So here you go, anything to kill the boredom of the off season and see how many 'Macgorians' you can spot in the background...

Thanks to TimS for pinpointing the correct year for these photos (I guessed it was 1999, close but no cigar!) I looked up the info above from the excellent 2006 Palmy Teams souvenir programme which celebrated the 25 year anniversary of this meeting. If you see one of these come up for sale on TradeMe you should buy it as it has photos and a summary of every previous title and is one of the better programmes you will ever see. If I remember right people bitched and moaned about paying $8 at the time for it. I bet they will go for a bit more than that now...

Hey Gregobro, the pics are from the 2000 Teams Champs, when Nelson won. BOP Raiders were there, but without Baz who was back in the Rebels. Cheers, Tim
