Elite entries are coming in now with some well known Aussies entered as well as the usual Kiwis. Of the confirmed European entries one to watch in M21E could be Sweden's Ulf Troeng 2nd in his JWOC short heat and 9th in the final. No slouch in the JWOC Classic either with an 18th place.
In W21E there is Henna Makelainen fron Finland (that I don't know anything about) and Sarah Noot from GB who has good JWOC placings to her credit

Couple of extra Aussies and it could be the Swe/NZ/Aus tri-series.

The mens elite class is now even stronger with entries from locals Stu Barr and Rob Jessop togther with Swedes Jonas Salen and Johan Palmer. This brings the class up to 35 competitors.
A late entry from Australia brings Danielle Winslow into the elite womens class to have a total of 21 competitors.
Its great to see that not only is M21E the biggest of the mens classes but W21E is the biggest (equal) of the women's.
Both of these classes are larger (the women substantially so) than at this years Easter carnival which had 120 more competitors than the Southern 6 Day.
Does this prove that for elites orienteering is a summer sport?!!

No. It proves that foriegners come on summer holiday to NZ in the summer.
