Masterton - home of the Golden Shears 1961 - 2020
For sixty years New Zealand’s paramount rural sporting event has been held in Masterton’s War Memorial Stadium. Thousands of shearers, wool handlers and wool pressers have competed with each other to be crowned the Golden Shears champion.
This book, lavishly illustrated by a number of different photographers but mainly by the Nikolaison family of Masterton, traces the development of Wairarapa’s most important annual sporting event, with contributions from historians, top shearing writers and those involved in the Golden Shears International Championships Society.
Complete with all the results from the 60th competition held in March 2020, it is a ‘must have’ for those who follow competitive shearing, and anyone interested in the wool industry.
