It’s that time of year when summer sport is starting up again. Davis Ogilvie is proud to support the Motueka Athletics Club each year by setting out the grass track at Motueka Memorial Park. The robotic theodolite is used for marking the lanes and the 200m, 400m and 800m staggered starts. We also set out the 60m, 100m and 1500m start lines, the 800m break line and the relay transition lines to allow a full range of running events.

This season sees Nelson hold the South Island Colgate Games at the Saxton Oval Athletics track in Stoke where Tony sets out the discus, shot put and javelin vectors each year on the grass area inside the all-weather track.
