At a fairly recent DU Manawatu Chapter dinner, our president John Cheyne successfully bid for a weekend at Jim Campbell’s (one of DU’s patrons), lodge near Mount Bruce in northern Wairarapa.

“I last visited Jims property in 1982,” John said. “It was soon after the pond had been constructed and was unfenced and not planted. What a difference 33 years makes!!!”

Gail (John’s wife), and I had a magnificent weekend that involved a guided tour of the farm and all Jim’s wetlands. The hospitality and company was magnificent, the venison tender and the whiskey smooth. A big thank you to Jim.”
