Have your say on the visitor levy. If we were in the States, instead of reading this you might be watching a slick TV advertisement starring a high profile Hollywood type encouraging you to vote. Well we can’t afford that. I’m here though, in black and white print, strongly urging the residents of the Queenstown Lakes District to vote in the upcoming referendum and have your say on the proposed visitor levy. We haven’t held a referendum in this district before. The fact that we have been given the go ahead to hold one speaks to the gravity of the issues we are facing. The residents and ratepayers of this district have long carried the cost of hosting more than three million visitors coming to Queenstown Lakes District annually. The New Zealand economy cannot afford a diminished visitor experience here – we are propping up the country’s largest industry, yet when our ratepayers are outnumbered 1: 34 by international visitors and one third of all infrastructure costs are linked to the demand caused by those visitors, it is unsustainable and untenable for thirty six thousand ratepayers to shoulder the burden of providing roads, water, waste water and facilities for them. The 5 June referendum gives us a one-time only opportunity to introduce a new funding model; one that could significantly change the way the district funds capital projects, things that affect your daily life here such as traffic, parking and recreation reserves. It’s vital we make the most of this opportunity because if we blow it, I’m sure we’ll never get the chance again. Why a visitor levy? With this levy we are asking the vast amount of visitors we host, to contribute towards the infrastructure they use while they are here. It’s a model that is seen in many places around the world. Chances are you’ve been charged one yourself but as a small percentage of your accommodation costs, it hardly hits the radar. Research supports our theory that an accommodation-based levy rather than a wider industry levy will get us to the target amount required to build and maintain the infrastructure we need without further penalising our locals. The reality is that the only commercial activity that is largely not used by residents is commercial accommodation. Practically every business in our district benefits from the tourism industry in some form so while attraction operators are definitely in the tourism business, so are the gas stations, the supermarkets, the retailers, the restaurants etc. We simply do not want our locals to end up paying again. This model ensures that it’s the visitors who are making the additional contribution, not the accommodation or service provider. The accommodation provider would only be the point of collection and we’re working to ensure it’s clearly separated from the direct accommodation charges, along the lines of how GST is apportioned today. There has been commentary around adding growth-based questions to the referendum. It’s taken two and a half years of lobbying two different governments with vast amounts of research and investment to finally be given the ability to ask one question. This referendum covers enabling the Queenstown Lakes District to fund itself. That’s all. I ask everyone from Makarora to Kingston to use your power. Vote on 5 June Mayor Jim Boult

Grubby Storefronts

W Hey shopkeepers, your shop has an inside;

and an outside. Queenstown shopkeepers seem to be oblivious to the amazingly grubby appearance of the outside of too many of their stores; yet every day potential shoppers walk past the outside of your shop deciding whether to go inside. Walk on any street, past many stores and you’ll see vomit remaining for a week or more; or weeks of urine staining a particular corner. The sills below the windows almost all show years of grime where a good scrub with a bucket and scrubbing brush could reveal

not just clean surfaces...but a degree of pride in your premises. Food stores are not exempt from this criticism; one pizza shop looks absolutely filthy. Why? Maybe acceptable in 3rd world places but we ain’t that! Blame the landlord? Blame the guy who puked in your doorway? Nah... Blame the attitude from within. Spend 2 minutes every morning when you open your doors and present your shop to the world. You just never know. One extra customer may walk in. Unhappy Customer

Grubby Ratepayer StorefrontsFunds! Stop Wasting Rather than waste Ratepayer funds on a non-binding referendum on a bed tax, why not have a binding one, on if the ratepayers want to or not follow the Mayors and councilors growth at all costs solution to the many malays that Queenstown residents currently face. This is mainly due to the incompetence of successive councils including this one, they simply will not face the fact, that you first provide for infrastructure before development. Yet they continue, despite their weak kneed protestations to the contrary while

continuing to push for development of their new council building the intensive development of the Lake-view and High School sites, approve multiple CBD Hotel and Apartment developments with inadequate on site parking. This uninhibited growth will put further strain on the CBD roading networks and overall infrastructure, which will further exasperate the problems we face rather than solve them. Over & Out

Impatient Drivers Gosh, there are some very impatient drivers out there, just drive over the Edith Cavell Bridge daily and then you will get to experience them. Turns out that they are very few drivers in this town that can stop and wait for 30 seconds to let the cars on the other side across.

You see them coming down the hill past the Shotover Jet intersection, speeding just to get to the bridge before the car in front leaves the bridge on the other side. I know that they have a right of way but surely speeding down the hill to get across while the other side is backing up further counts as irresponsible driving? Driver

Bikers & People & Cars…Oh My How has there been no mountain bikers/ seriously injured or even worse, killed on Brecon Street coming down from Skyline? Every day there are bikers doing wheelies and whizzing past at break-neck speeds down the centre line. Most without helmets and they think they are super cool with their arms crossed.

With the amount of traffic and people on that road moving and parking to get to Skyline, it is a serious health & safety risk. Come on guys and gals, knock some sense into yourselves before a car does and realise how much of a safety risk you impose on that stretch of road. Pull your heads in

Facebook/Website Comments Entrepreneurship in QT - Issue 694 Well said Ting. I started my own business because I was tired of being undervalued by employers here. Ask for more pay and most of the time you won’t get it – ask for a reason, ask what you can do to be of more value and most of the time, employers don’t have an answer... unconscious bias definitely plays a role! Data released in 2017 suggested that the pay gap is around 12% and that 80% of that couldn’t be explained. It is hard, but running your own business or doing gig work enables you to walk away from poorly paid jobs. Gig gal Boycott Bars - Issue 695 Did you ever think that the reason that you could enjoy a $6 beer is purely because the bar owner was paying minimum wage. If you want to drink in bars paying the living wage I suggest that you get ready to be paying a lot more for your chosen brew. Blah blah blah Noise Pollution - Issue 695 One thing that really gets me upset is people such as taxi drivers or others who arrive at someones house at say 0530 in the morning, and toot on their car horn to let the person whom they are picking up that they had arrived...that wakes up the whole neighbourhood...and another thing, the a@@@@@@@@ who get out of a taxi at 0300, and slam the taxi door, waking me up...some people have no thought for anyone else except themselves...I would seriously hate to be a night shift worker trying to get a bit of shuteye during the day here in Queenstown...it appears that young people in particular have no regard for anyone else but themselves...

Triple-double Taippei 101 Milan, Italy Red Dwarf Star (earth is a yellow dwarf) French Guiana


The school holidays are here and one question will reign supreme, especially if it is raining: What can we do today?

We live in the best place in world to enjoy some family time together and lucky enough to see some of the best Queenstown has to offer. From world-class adventure to something more laid back and indoors there is plenty to keep the kids occupied.

So Here Are Our Top Picks Of What To Do These School Holidays: If It’s Dry

If It’s Looking Like A Wet Day

1. If you fancy a one day holiday to visit some of our iconic experiences Real journeys have a kids go free offer on at the moment which includes trips to Walter Peak, Milford or even Stewart Island. 2. Another great day out for the kids especially those who love extreme hide and seek is Paintball Central in Cromwell. The team at Paintball pride themselves on safety so while the kids will be exhausted they will be in one piece. Only 50 minutes from Queenstown this makes a great day out. 3. A J Hackett have lots of options for adrenaline packed fun including Zipride, Catapult, Swings and Bungy Jumps, something for the whole family.

1. A relatively inexpensive tried and trusted half day has always got to be at the pool at $8 for adults and $4 for each child this is always a great option. 2. The Ice Arena is back open. The ice rink is open generally from 10am right through the school holidays. Located in Queenstown Gardens the Arena couldn’t be any more ideally located. 3. The relatively new iFly is something the kids will love. Indoor skydiving it gives you the idea of freefall without the freezing cold and in perfect safety as you are riding on air.

Queenstown’s newest comedy night has gone off with a bang.

Tim Muller photographed by Darren A Hill

Comedian Tim Muller set up the monthly Remarkably Funny open mic earlier this year and says he was “expecting to be banging my head against the wall for at least a year” until the concept took off. The reality’s been quite different; there’s already a crew of 10 – 12 regular performers and the last few sessions have sold out. “I lived in Auckland for seven years and moved to Cromwell in early 2018 for work and family. I missed having the opportunity to perform, so I set up Remarkably Funny and it’s got off to a really great start,” says Tim. “It’s currently mostly stand-up, but I’d be interested to hear from people wanting to do improv, musical comedy etc. too.” Tim says the current comedy group is of varied experience, with seasoned performers of 10 years, all the way to newbies doing their first ever performances. “It’s very dynamic. Often the first timers go really well. There’s a special atmosphere, the audience really gets behind them.” Tim got into the comedy scene more than ten years ago, purely by accident. While studying at University, he had a few friends who were in a comedy group and this inspired Tim to write a comedy sketch when he couldn’t sleep one night. He got the comedy bug and from then on, he says it’s been a “solid part” of his life. Remarkably Funny also aims to invite top comedians from around the world to perform and inspire others. Last month, British/Pakistani comedian Sajeela Kershi performed at the Sherwood and talked about the importance of comedy in the face of tragedy and difficult social conversations. “Laughing in the face of something tragic can be a powerful form of resistance,” says Tim. The group is keen to support comedians of all levels and backgrounds. Those wishing to ‘give it a go’ should contact Tim (remarkablyfunny@ gmail.com) – the group are particularly keen to get more female performers involved. Keen to spectate? The next Remarkably Funny evening is at Yonder (Church Street) on 18th April. Doors open at 7:30pm and tickets sales are via Eventfinda.com and cost just $5. Note that there will be no door sales for this event, so make sure you book ahead.

Art News Rare Goldie Portraits Sell for $1 million Queenstown-based musician Two historic Māori portraits by Charles Goldie were sold at auction last week for a combined total of more than $1 million. Goldie’s portraits of Wharekauri Tahuna (Te Arawa) and Te Kamaka (Ngāti Maniapoto) sold for $624,650 and $474,000 respectively. Goldie, who died in 1947, is one of New Zealand’s bestknown portrait artists. He is famed for capturing the mood of Māori elders at a turbulent time in New Zealand’s history. The emotional detail and historical importance of the portraits have made Goldie’s work some of the country’s most desired – and expensive. In 2016, Noble Relic of a Noble Race, Goldie’s last major work before he died, was sold for $1.175 million.

Demolition Derby a Feature of Easter Speedway Action By Ross Lindsay

If ever there was a reason for travelling with family or friends from the Wakatipu to the Cromwell Basin, Easter’s speedway action is most definitely it. Good Friday at Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway, it’s down to the wire for a blow-your-socks-off final of the $100,000 2018/19 Sprintcar Hydraulink War of the Wings. Defending Wow champ Jamie ‘Duffman’ Duff tops the leader board with 810 points. Nipping at his heels is 19-year-old ‘wunder kid’ Connor Rangi on 784 and don’t rule out Central Motor Speedway’s own Slammin’ Sammy O’Callaghan on 705. In speedway anything can happen and in the blink of an eye Sammy could leapfrog to the lead and title. Churning out 850+ horsepower, sprintcars are speedway’s fastest and arguably most spectacular class. Not that any class comes close to being boring. They all deliver excitement and high speed, tyre screeching, clay hurling, exhaust bellowing entertainment. On Good Friday other classes racing are the wide and grunty super saloons and saloons, Commodore powered six shooters (aka wingless sprintcars), enthusiastically driven productions and surprisingly fast and furious youth ministocks with boys and girls between 12 and 16 showing how it’s done. Easter Racing continues at Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway on Easter Sunday with one of the most popular events of the season... the X-Factor Cars and Otago Metals Central Demolition Derby. As a warm up to this festival of auto destruction there’s the Sprintcar King of Cromwell and all classes racing plus a contingent of streetstocks. And if all goes to plan, there will also be burnout action. This last car running Demolition Derby is a huge crowd pleaser, especially for the young of years and young at heart. As for the drivers, they have a smashing time. For anyone prone to road rage entering an old dunga in this derby would seem to be a lifetime cure. Before they start biffing each other, cars competing in the demo derby have in fact gone through quite a process that includes chaining or welding shut doors, removing all glass and accessories, fitting a four or five point harness seat belt and installing a substantial roll bar. Track action at Central Motor Speedway, Cromwell, on Good Friday and Easter Sunday starts at 4pm but to grab a parking spot around the track take advantage of gates opening at 2pm. While waiting for racing, use the time to visit the pits (children must be accompanied by an adult) to meet drivers, their crews and also collect free posters.
