The Wairarapa is an intriguing place, full of interesting people doing fascinating things if you spend the time tracking them down.
For instance, I stayed away from Stonehenge Aotearoa for a while, worried it'd be some twee embarrassing facsimile of the original Stonehenge. I was an idiot. It's brilliant, and the people who run it are fabulous at giving insights into how our ongoing understanding of measurement and time and the heavens has shaped civilisation. In short, it was a revelation, and one I've happily taken other visitors to.
With that in mind, I'm looking forward to participating in the Made In Wairarapa exhibition, which kicks off Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th of August at the Genesis Centre in Masterton. I'm keen to find out more about what's going on in my backyard, and meet the folk who make their living in all sorts of interesting ways.
We will, of course, also be there showing off our web, design and boardgame work, including Five Men Standing, the official game of Rugby World Cup 2011.
If you pop by and have a play, you'll score a voucher for $5 off the game itself or $2 off a Country Team Pack.
Hope to catch you there!
