Spring has sprung

Spring has arrived, but you wouldn't think so. Temperatures are still cool, and the ground is very wet - but if it eventually does stop raining, then the grass can grow, we can get out the BBQ and start to enjoy the longer evenings.

During winter we have been very busy at Morris Sheetmetal Works, with the usual range of jobs that we work on. We have been fabricating some of the following items -

race car panels

trays (with and without handles)

face plates

toilet signs

flashings (all different sizes and shapes)

brackets and plates

trolleys

and hoppers,

along with attending shutdowns and emergencys for some of our major clients.

We will be running a competition to go into a draw for 2 adult tickets to a meeting at Western Springs speedway. Make sure you get your business card into the jar on Val's desk. The competition will start in October 2017, and tickets will be drawn each month throughout the season. Winners will be notified by phone or email. Western Springs season starts on November 4 2017 and runs through until March 10 2018.

Winter is upon us

Winter has well and truly arrived, with cold mornings and winter illnesses upon us.

The Lions rugby tour is rapidly coming to a close, with one test done and dusted and two more to come, before they head home. Can the All Blacks make it a clean sweep and send the Lions back to the Northern hemisphere with their tails between their legs?

Our yachties have done us proud and won the "Auld Mug" back with a 7 - 1 drubbing of Team USA.

Our ladies have won the HSBC Women's Sevens World Series title for 2017, beating Australia 22 - 7 in the final at the Clermont Sevens.

And at Morris Sheetmetals we have been hard at work producing all kinds of products for our many different customer's needs.

We are hoping to add a blog to our News page shortly, to keep you all up to date with what we are up to at Morris Sheetmetal Works.

RE Motorsport

Western Springs speedway has been running in Auckland since 1929.

Both Mark and Val are long-term speedway followers, Mark attending from the late 1950's and Val from the early 1960's. Both of us have brought our families up around motorsport and our children have slept beside the track on a Saturday night. So much for the neighbours complaining about the noise!

Mark follows the open wheel racing of Western Springs, while Val has travelled the country over the last 10 years, chasing the open wheel classes of midgets, sprintcars and tq midgets, along with stockcars, superstocks, saloons and supersaloons from the closed wheel classes.

Val cops a lot of flack over her following of the stockcar ranks - being termed as "crossing to the other side" in following another arm of dirt track racing - but it's all good clean fun.

And from our spending our Saturday nights at Western Springs, has come our sponsorship of the TQ 77a of Richard Eva, who is currently dating one of Val's daughters.

Richard has raced for two seasons,and was placed in the top 10 in the North Island championship, and was 5th in the Auckland TQ midget club championship Division 2.

Richard also received the "Infeild" award - for spending the most time on the infield due to spinning out!

Richard had the rare distinction of managing to flip his car and land back on the wheels, without hitting the track or damaging the car. After a quick safety check from the officials, Richard was allowed to continue his race - much to the delight of the attending crowd.
