The STOL competition has three categories - microlight, light touring and heavy touring. Within these, many of the taildraggers may have had a slight advantage [except for the microlight category where those awesome Zenair CH701's took out the first 3 places], but it still comes down to pilot skill.
Anyway, on to the taildraggers.
First up is a Zlin Aviation Savage, ZK-KSC, registered to a Mairehau [Christchurch] address.

Next up is a SkyStar Kitfox IV, ZK-JFA, of a Kaiapoi address.

The next aircraft is a Titan T51 Mustang, ZK-TCV. Unlike some of the other T51's in the country, this one is registered as an amateur built aeroplane, instead of a microlight, due to its MUAW being over the microlight category. It has a beautiful finish on it and is pretty much local being registered to a Nelson address.

Last up for this post is a Murphy rebel, ZK-VAN, truly is local, being registered to a Blenheim address.
