Nelson still the spot to holiday Andrew Board Tourists are still flocking to Nelson and Tasman despite a tough economic year and another Christchurch earthquake putting an end to some holiday plans, says Nelson Tasman Tourism chief Lynda Keene. Operators say the number of people holidaying in the region is about par or just slightly below last summer’s numbers and while that may not sound like good news, Lynda says Nelson is still a hot destination. “Traditionally a lot of Cantabrians come up on the 26th [of December] but a lot have obviously had to stay at home after the earthquake, so to still be holding as well as we are is good news.” Camping grounds spoken to by Nelson Weekly say they are on par with last year. Valda Holland from Tahuna Beach Holiday Park says at its height the park had 2300 people in it and numbers are similar to last summer. While the Christmas to early New Year period has been busy Lynda says the sector is expecting a traditional soft patch until visitors flock to the region again in February. “There’s no doubt we are still a favourite holiday destination for both domestic and international travellers and there is a very positive outlook for the next few months and beyond.” While people are still visiting the region it seems the effect of the recession is still biting with free activities very popular, including hiking, swimming and gardening. “Free products are getting a lot of interest which shows that people are very mindful of spending money,” says Lynda.

Sun shines on Summer Six concert Scorching heat was a welcoming sight for 1700 concert-goers at Summer Six and without it, the gig was in danger of even happening. An oversight left organisers reeling after a sprinkler came on the night leading up to the concert and soaked all of the equipment. “We were just lucky the sun came out first thing in the morning to allow us to dry out our musical, produc-

tion and bar equipment,” says organiser Dave White. But the sprinkler drama was the only hiccup in an otherwise sensational Summer Six, highlighted by crowd favourite Katchafire. Of the 1700 people who entered Trafalgar Park on Saturday, every single one of them was on their feet dancing and singing to the Hamiltonbased reggae group.

Head Like a Hole’s heavy rock and the Phoenix Foundation’s indie sound were both welcoming additions and allowed for a wider fan base. Change of venue was a huge positive from last year’s concert at Saxton Oval, with barely any wait, and much easier access to toilets and food stalls. Dave says despite a financial hit the concert will be held again next year.

Nelson ladies clean up fashion stakes The region’s snappiest dressers were out in force at the Nelson Harness Races on Sunday. The annual event, held at Richmond Park, saw 46 women and 11 men enter the Richmond Mall Fashion in the Field competition. Taking out the women’s section was Nelson’s Emma Silk. Nelson also claimed second spot with Angela Miller being presented with the title of runner up. Emma’s stylish ensemble won her a $1000 Richmond Mall gift voucher and a year’s supply of Oxygen Skincare. Emma was also able to celebrate in style after being presented with a magnum of Lindauer. Best dressed male went to Richmond’s David Hope, who received a $200 Richmond Mall

voucher and a year’s supply of Oxygen Skincare. Runner up in the male category was Nelson’s Phil Groenewald. Head judge Leonie Trathen says this year the Fashion in the Field event was a lot of fun, for both the contestants and the crowd. “The calibre of outfits was really high this year. It’s not about beauty; it’s about what you’re wearing.” Leonie says all the contestants put a lot of thought into their outfits. “The accessories, hair, jewellery, shoes, everything was complimentary.” Alana Riley, director of Oxygen Skincare and coordinator of the event, says this year’s event was more successful than ever.

Nelson man using pedal power for final challenge Andrew Board Half way through Mark (Hap) Cameron’s quest to work and live on every continent on the globe, he had dreadlocks down his back and a spattering of facial hair. Heading into his last challenge this year, the 29 year-old Nelson man expects to be almost bald. Hap’s eight-year quest is now somewhat famous. After finishing university at Otago in 2003 he decided to live and work on every continent before his 30th birthday – 11/11/2011. With ten months to go Hap has completed most of his challenge, working in Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Australasia and Antarctica. This June he aims to tick off Africa in style. The theme for the African journey is sustainability, so he is planning to get to his new job on a bike. “I’ve travelled all over and started to think about the amount of energy I have used flying and especially when I worked on the cruise ship in Antarctica, so this time around I wanted to do it with as much human power as possible.” Hap has hooked up with Bikes for Humanity, a Melbourne-based charity, and is raising money to pay for a shipping container full of used bicycles to be shipped to a village in Zambia. Hap and his girlfriend Mandy Todd will meet it there, cycling from Cape Town to the village, some 5000km. Once there Hap will give out the bikes to local orphans and aid workers and turn the shipping container into a bike shop where five locals will be trained on how to fix the bikes so the project continues to work years after the bikes have been delivered. Which brings us back to Hap’s baldness. To help raise $12,000 to pay for the shipping of the container some of Hap’s friends are organising a fundraiser in Melbourne, where

Welcome to

he is based. It will feature all sorts of entertainment, including Hap getting the big shave if a movie trailer made for the trip reaches 5000 hits on his website. “I’m a bit unsure about it, but it’s for a good cause so that will get me through,” he says about going bald. Hap and Mandy will have their African journey documented by award-winning film-maker Richard Sidey. Hap, who was back in Nelson for Christmas and New Years, estimates the journey will take several months, and after seven years of working towards his goal is unsure of how he will feel when it’s all over. “It will be strange, it’s been such a big part of my life for so many years now. But I’ll be pretty happy, it’s been a big adventure.” The journey has had its ups-and-downs says Hap, at one stage he questioned if he still wanted to do it. “Getting to Antarctica was so hard, for years I got denied and it sucked. For a while in South America I was so down and wanted to flag it. “Another defining moment was when I stayed with a mate from uni in Auckland. They were all getting into their suits and going off to work in their cars, I thought to myself ‘what am I doing, sleeping on a couch with all my possessions in one bag.’ I really thought about giving it away then as well, but I’m glad I stuck with it and this year it will be all worthwhile.”

The latest leg will quite possibly be the most rewarding as well says Hap. “I’ve done all sorts and been in all sorts of crazy situations and I’ve really enjoyed everywhere I’ve been, but Africa will be special I think, it’s the one I’ve always looked forward to and I really can’t wait to get there.” So far Hap has taught English in South Korea; tutored in Spain; erected marquee’s in the United States (where he saw Michael Campbell win the US Open from a tree); been a fudge packer, nightclub toilet cleaner and worked on oil rigs in Canada; worked in an orphanage in Guatemala; worked in the mining industry in Western Australia; as a dive master in Paraguay and was an assistant waiter on a six-star Antarctica cruise ship. Hap is still raising money for the shipping container of bikes to get to Africa, if you wish to donate money or follow Hap’s journey so far, check out his website, hapworkingtheworld.com.

Jazzy start to new year Nelson’s new year was kicked off with some sweet sounds thanks to the Woollaston Jazz & Blues festival, which ended on Sunday. The week-long festival, now an intergral part of summer in Nelson, saw 60 concerts being held in parks, restaurants, bars, the museum, winery’s, paid venues and other public spaces. Festival organiser Rowena Richards says she was thrilled with the response to the festival. “It’s been a faboulous week, we’ve had so many people come through, at Fairfield Park we had close to 6000 people and Washbourn Gardens it was packed on Sunday night.” Andrew London of Hot Club Sandwich says his band has been playing at the festival for 10 years SWEET SOUNDS: Members of the Nelson Jazz Club Big Band perform and this year was “the biggest yet”. during the Woollaston Jazz & Blues Festival.

Searching for more youth rescuers

No More Pests Local Brightwater couple Shane and Terri Gousmett have recently taken over pest control business Spiderban Nelson Limited. The pair say they can remove any type of pest from your home, but especially flies, spiders and ants. They say the best time to have your house sprayed is between September and May making now the ideal time to give them a call and find out how they can control your pests. The business covers the Tasman and Nelson area, and the couple are hoping to build their client base in 2011. “We’re looking forward to being in the community and providing a friendly service to locals and proving that what we do really works,” says Terri. Spiderban Nelson Limited provides competitive pricing and a free quote. “A lot of services don’t do it, but we also

remove cobwebs from the outside of the house and go the extra mile,” says Shane. “We specialise in ant control, and have been specifically trained in this area, along with white-tail control.” A warranty is provided with spider control work - six months for interior work and one year for exterior. The local couple are both approved chemical handlers and offer a reduced rate for group bookings. Customers don’t need to remember to call and make an annual booking; Shane and Terri say they will let you know when it’s time to spray again. Spiderban Nelson Limited is an approved CRT supplier and offer a 10 per cent discount if you use your card. Visit www.spiderban.co.nz, call 03-5422044 or 0800-111-778 for more information.

The next generation of life savers is hard at work and loving it. If someone goes missing in the bush anywhere from here to Haast, Nelson Search and Rescue are sent out to look for them. But in order to keep Nelson Search and Rescue going, a group of teenagers aged 14-18 formed Youth Search and Rescue, so they can learn the skills required and carry it through when they’ve finished school. But Nelson YSAR are now on the lookout for new members and would welcome anyone who is keen to help out and learn skills that will help you and others in New Zealand’s natural environment. “It’s a great experience. You meet new people, and learn skills that will help you and other people,” says YSAR member Nicola Clark. Nicole is the only girl and says “it’d be nice” if a couple of others came along. Each week YSAR members get together training. Throughout the year that training covers everything from mapping, compass, radios, GPS, first aid, search methods, and general bush skills and survival. Jayden Hughes says the best part about YSAR is getting out in the bush. Common searches include rescuing tourists who have gone off the track as well as looking for people with Alzheimer’s. If you’re keen, outgoing and would like to join YSAR you can Youth Search and Rescue members Nicola Clark, 18, Jayden Hughes, do so by going to their website. www. 15, and Neil Buschl, 16, are looking for more people to join the NelsonYSAR.yolasite.com. group.

• Happy New Year to you all, I hope your boating ventures this year have all been safe and successful ones. • Here in the port we saw two super yachts, eight large fishing vessels plus several smaller ones, come and go. Five large vessels moved around to various bunker stations, four large container vessels, a bulk fertiliser ship, and a log carrier kept the port operating. • A great number of recreational boaties have been out enjoying the settled weather when we had some. Don’t forget to keep a sharp lookout as there are several logs and other debris from the rain and floods still out there causing a hazard to safe navigation. • We have not had as much cause to speak to people this week due to their behaviour, on the contrary we have been able to congratulate some. Thank you all for that. • We have spoken to a few jet skiers this week. Please ensure you have an observer on your jet-ski IN ADDITION to the driver if you are towing a skier, biscuit, or wake boarder. A $200 fine could be the result if you don’t have one. Please also ensure that if you are skiing or biscuiting you are doing so in the appropriate areas. • Kite surfers – Please stay outside the Tahunanui buoys. Do not wave jump along the shallow water inside the buoys, to do so could be a $200 infringement. Keep a sharp lookout this week. Have fun, watch the weather If in doubt- don’t go out. Dave Duncan, Harbour Master/Marine Operations Manager.

Trolleys to get second wind at ‘T-Day’

– New You!

New year resolution… To loose weight, tone up, get fitter, be healthy? Log onto www.grabone.co.nz before midnight tonight to get THE BEST DEAL… 1 month membership and 4 personal training sessions for only $60!

Trolleys in Nelson will get a makeover this weekend as the city’s Trolley Club hosts the first ever T-Day on Saturday. The day, a play on the successful e-day where people drop off old electronic equipment, will give Nelsonians the opportunity to bring in their old trolleys and trolley parts, so others can breathe new life into them, ready for the Derby on March 26. Gilbert Robertson from sponsor Robertson Chartered Accountants says the inaugural T-Day will give people the opportunity clean out their garages and hand over their old trolleys, which will in turn give others the chance to participate. “Nelson’s recycle centre and the success of e-day shows that in general Nelsonians are good at dealing with household clutter responsibly by recycling,” Gilbert says. “T-Day is in line with this philosophy because it’s an opportunity for people to recycle their old trolleys while also giving others who perhaps may be unable to af-

ford ‘off the shelf ’ parts, the opportunity to participate in the trolley derby.” Nelson Trolley Club president, Tim Bayley says for the first time the club will also be running workshops in the lead up to the derby, where people will be able to select from the trolleys and parts collected on T-Day. “We intend to run public trolley building workshops at a central Nelson location in February, so that our trolley club experts can help anyone participating in the derby to build their own trolleys,” says Tim. “People can bring along their own parts to the workshops, with the added bonus of being able to select from the bits and pieces we hope to receive on T-Day.” For more information regarding Robertson’s Trolley Derby 2011 go to www. derby.co.nz. • T-Day will take place on Saturday January 15, at 6/2 Washington Road (near Roberts Kitchens at the bottom of Washington Rd) between 10am and 2pm.

Football fever hits Nelson Anticipation around Nelson’s biggest football game in more than a decade is expected to reach fever pitch even before Canterbury and Wellington take to the Trafalgar Park pitch this Sunday. And it is not just the game that is grabbing all the attention. Aspiring footballers will get a chance to be coached and play with Canterbury United’s key figures just one day before their ASB Premiership clash with Team Wellington. Nelson Bays Football has organised a fun day this Saturday for children aged 7-13

years-old, where they will be trained by national league players including current All White Aaron Clapham and Nelson Suburbs’ devastating striker Gagame Feni. ASB Bank is providing prizes including drink bottles, bags and footballs during the fun day. Nelson Bays Football Regional Development Officer George Campbell says the training day is designed for the kids to have some fun and play some games, while getting a chance to meet some of the top players in the country. “They have an op-

portunity to be coached by national league players, watch national league players, and just soak up the atmosphere of what it’s like at this level,” George says. Young football fans will then be able to come along the next day and watch the big game for free as the gates are being opened for children, leaving organisers hoping for a family atmosphere. Two mixed Nelson under-14 sides will play a curtain raiser match at 11:45am. There will be face painting, Flossy the balloon lady will be making red and black inflatable hats, and families are welcome to bring a picnic along to the match. George says some of the players involved in the curtain raiser will flourish playing in front of a predicted healthy crowd. “It puts a little bit of pressure on them naturally. All of them have played rep football. But now they have to set a standard for people to be like ‘oh these kids can play’.” The main event between Canterbury United and Team Wellington kicks off at 2pm and is the first National League game to be played in Nelson since Nelson United was dropped from the league more than a decade ago. The fun day begins at 4pm on Saturday at Trafalgar Park. Children wishing to take part should register at www.nelsonbaysfootball.co.nz. Kick off for the match is on Sunday from 2pm.

I’m getting ready for kick off. It’s going to be huuuuuuuuuuge.
