Relevant offers

One of Southland's most-loved sports days continues to be a winner with crowds and organisers.

Browns Sports Day, held on Saturday near Winton, drew big crowds and bigger enthusiasm for the long-running event, with some calling it the best they'd had in a long while.

Announcer Peter Templeton, who has been involved with the day for 25 years, said it was the best day they'd had in a long time.

"It was absolutely excellent. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves."

One thing in particular was the mini hurdles set up for the younger children to have a go at, he said.

"There were mums and nanas screaming on the sidelines . . . it was just a lot of fun."

Part of the appeal for the event, the longest-running of its kind in Southland, was the laid back, family atmosphere, he said.

"You can say a few [cheeky] things on the mic and no-one seems to mind."
