The Mana Pounamu Awards evening was held on 19 October. Michael Ellison and I were honoured to receive awards and it was a great night. The support of all the kapa haka school rōpū was awesome to see but my highlight was the speeches from the guest speakers. Thanks to all the sponsors and everyone who made it a fun night.
