Fun race a mud bath The dirtiest race in Nelson was nothing but good clean fun, say organisers of the May Madness Mud Run at Monaco on Saturday. The Honest Lawyer Country Pub and Hotel hosted the event with the support of the Stoke Volunteer Fire Brigade, which raised $260 from a barbeque thanks to food donated by Pestells, Westmeat,

Quality Bakers and Countdown Stoke. Ingrid Nicholls, event coordinator of the Honest Lawyer says the event was “brilliant” with around 60 people competing in the race around the Monaco estuary. “We didn’t expect as many people as we had because it was planned in just two weeks so we are thrilled and definitely doing it again next year.”

“You can’t just have a netbook, it has to be a proper laptop or iPad so it’s actually really expensive. There’s a lot of families that just can’t afford that.”

“I think it’s very hard on the families that can’t afford it. It makes a finance barrier; the ones who have and the ones who haven’t.”

“It’s pretty good marketing from Apple Mac, that’s for sure, to get that happening in all the schools.”

“Ideally I think it’s a great idea, but where will some of the parents get the money from? It discriminates against people on much more limited incomes.”

country and every other funding benefactor must do the same by signing our opposition to the bill amendment.” Nigel Muir of Sport Tasman says the majority of sporting codes in Nelson receive money from gaming trusts and if that was to be cut off it would have a massive impact on the community, not just sports clubs. “This bill is certainly of major concern. My perspective is that it’s easy to change this but you have to show what the new solution will be for funding community groups. Will gambling disappear if you

get rid of pokies? Or will it just move it online? At least at the moment the community gets some of the money.” Other community organisations and charities as well as some local schools also receive money from the gaming trusts. But Nelson-based Dr Philip Townsend, of the Problem Gambling Foundation, says those groups hanging on “with white knuckles” to funding from pokie money need to change their ways. “This petition is trying to stop the democratic right for people to decide whether or not to keep pokie machines in their communities which is a very

dodgy stance to take. “Forty per cent of the money that goes into pokie machines is from problem gamblers. It’s pretty dirty money. You shouldn’t need to have that sort of money to keep your sport going.” He says sports codes and other groups are toeing the line that the pokie industry feeds them and he “broadly” supports the bill. Both sides were clear on one point though, urging people to make a submission. “We want people to think very carefully about it,” says Philip. For more information on the bill visit

Students prepare for future A free conference will help secondary school students make informed career choices, say organisers. A range of industries from the region will be showcased this Friday for around 180 students who are preparing to leave college. They will participate in workshops that are designed to be interactive and industry-specific. Nicole Huntley from Careers New Zealand says the one-day conference is an ideal opportunity for students to try out training from across a wide spectrum before they commit. The day is hands on rather than a series of lectures. “Last year students made mock-tails, built toolboxes and learnt hairstyling techniques, and that’s just for starters,” says Nicole. Careers New Zealand staff will be available throughout the conference to discuss career options with students and answer any questions.

Maori ward voted down Nelson voters have emphatically voted down the creation of a Maori ward at Nelson City Council. Almost 80 per cent of votes were against the creation of a ward after the council announced it was establishing one late last year. Every councillor – except for an absent Ian Barker and Paul Matheson, who abstained – voted for the seat, with several later backtracking, saying the process was wrong. After the announcement of the ward, a peti-

tion circulated the city with more than 2000 signatures collected, enough to force Saturday’s poll. The results of the poll aren’t surprising says mayor Aldo Miccio, but “disappointing”. “The council put the proposal out there to establish a Maori ward, however it’s clear our community is not yet ready to take that step. “This proposal was about giving fair representation to Maori around the council table in a simple, cost-effective way. Going for-

ward, we will continue to engage with Maori using existing mechanisms in place.” And the man who sits in the region’s Maori seat in parliament says he is also disappointed, “but not surprised”. “That there was such a backlash to a perfectly good and proper decision to originally go with the ward and now the subsequent result from the weekend probably says it all about the state of relations between Maori and Pakeha in this region.”

New Vinyl are new Rockquest winners The only thing that stood in front of Alex Farrell-Davey and Ed Palmer last year was The Peasants. This year, with Allister Meffan tagging along to form the trio dubbed New Vinyl, the only thing that stood in front of them was a sold-out crowd mesmerised by the performance of Nelson’s latest Rockquest kings. Alex, the band’s vocalist and guitarist, says it was the band’s unusual combination of guitar, double bass and piano accordion which made them stand out. “We want to do our own thing and I think that genuine originality came through,” he says. All of the members of New Vinyl are from Nelson College.



The Nelson final of Smokefreerockquest was held at the Theatre Royal and large crowd numbers meant organisers had to turn people away once it reached capacity. Second place went to Midnight’s Sun, a seven piece band from Nelson College, Garin College and Nelson College for Girls. These top two bands win musical gear from NZ Rockshops and go on to compete for one of eight national finalist spots in this year’s Smokefreerockquest national final at the Claudelands Arena in Hamilton on September 22. The Peasants, of Garin College, went on to win the national final last year.

Knight shines brightly on Nelson stage

Acting legend Sir Ian McKellen was in town over the weekend for his one man show, raising money for the Issac Theatre Royal in Christchurch. Nelson Weekly reporter Rosie Thomsen was lucky enough to get an exclusive interview with him. What do you feel is your greatest achievement? “I think it will say on my gravestone ‘Here lies Gandalf; He came out.’ I think both those there are the best achievements in my life.” Do you have any family in the industry? “No. Oh I do, wait a minute, I do; my niece is a standup comedian! She does alright; Clare Lomas. Whether she’s been here I don’t know, she’s often at the Edinburgh Festival.” Movies you’ve worked in have amazing special effects, and you yourself have been in some of the greatest. When you started your career fifty years ago did you anticipate the dramatic progression of film technology? “No I don’t think so. But you know, there were 3D films around fifty years ago, but I

wasn’t involved with them. All films are technical, and one bit of technology rather than another doesn’t make much difference really, it’s all about the storytelling. It doesn’t make much difference whether you’re in front of a green screen or actually in the real place where it’s meant to be.” Your show is raising money for the Issac Theatre Royal in Christchurch. What do you think of our Theatre Royal? “Beautiful, beautiful! This is the first theatre - because I had thought originally I would come round and I would raise money for the local theatre I was playing in and for Christchurch, and Nelson was the first theatre to say ‘no, no, no, it’s not for us, it’s all for Christchurch.’ So they’re not taking any money out of it, and other theatres followed suit, so there we are. It’s not just me who’s being generous, it’s terrific.” So who would win a fight - Gandalf or Magneto? “They don’t exist in the same world, it’ll never happen! [Laughs] Gandalf of course, the old man!”

FIRE IN RICHMOND: Fire investigators say two fires lit on one Champion Rd property on Saturday night are suspicious and they are investigating, along with police. Fire fighters were called to the twin blazes around 8.30pm on Saturday night. It took almost five hours to put out the fires. MP’S PLEA TO COUNCILS: The Nelson and Tasman councils need to rethink their ten year plans that would have the region’s local government debt blow out to $490 million, Nelson MP Nick Smith told the Nelson Residents’ Association last week. “Debt is the issue of our time and it is wreaking havoc on societies in Europe. We must learn from their mistakes and ensure we don’t let our own levels of borrowing put our communities at risk. Our two councils have already increased their debt from $45m in 2000 to $250m today. Nelson City Council’s debt was $16m and Tasman District Council’s was $29m in 2000. Currently debt stands at $97m in Nelson and $153m in Tasman. The two draft long term plans have the debt increasing to $174m in Nelson and $316m in Tasman over ten years.

NCC A WINNER: Nelson City Council and Incite Planning Consultants have received the New Zealand Planning Institute Best Practice Award for the Port Nelson Noise project. The award recognises outstanding creativity, innovation, and service in district and regional planning. The Port Noise project involved finding a solution through the Resource Management Act process that allows the Port to keep operating while nearby residents get a good night’s sleep. The success of the project has seen the number of complaints about port noise drop from 73 in 2003 to just 10 in 2011.

Young scientists selected for international festival Controlled chaos will reign as budding scientists from all over the country gather in Dunedin during the International Science Festival. Among them will be Nelson’s own David Bishop of Nelson College and Charles Norton of Nayland College. The students will have the chance to escape the school science lab, travelling to Dunedin to participate in science activities as well as visiting some of the city’s great educational attractions including the Anatomy Museum, the Department of Zoology, the New Zealand Marine Studies Centre and the Invermay Agricultural Centre. The students were selected for the experience

from within their school and area, after their teachers recommended they apply. The pair say they are looking forward to the event, and they enjoy all of the scientific disciplines. “Without having any of my science teachers kill me, I quite like chemistry at the moment; we’re doing some pretty cool stuff. Titrations are coming up,” says David. The Royal Society of New Zealand selected 22 students from New Zealand out of more than 300 who applied and 21 more from schools around Australia. They were chosen on the basis of excellent Charles Norton of Nayland College, left, and David Bishop of Nelson College were selected to attend a prestigious science festival.

Trust makes hospital more comfortable for day patients Rosie Thomsen Fluffy pink blankets, chick flicks, comedy box sets and books are set to improve otherwise bleak outings for Nelson women. Donated by the Nelson Regional Breast Cancer Trust (NRBCT) to the Day Stay unit at Nelson Hospital, the items are intended to distract women from the otherwise “medical” environment, says Nurse Annie Walker. The NRBCT spent $2755 to provide the cosy distractions, which include portable DVD players, movies, novels and textbooks, magazine subscriptions and more. Last year the trust donated a portable ultrasound machine to the same unit. “It’s about doing anything that can

make it more comfortable, more bearable for the women. It’s a very medical environment. Diversion therapy can help take their minds off it,” says Annie. “We were really mindful when it came to picking the DVDs,” says Kate Coote, founding NRBCT trustee. “We made sure to get a really good, broad spectrum.” Titles were selected for all ages and interests, including Jane Austin, the Vicar of Dibley, Flight of the Conchords, Modern Family and Sex and the City. “But no hospital dramas,” says Kate. A similar donation was made at Wairau Hospital in Blenheim, with the intention to share the books and DVDs between the two hospitals.

Slice of Chez history up for grabs There have been few Nelson icons as celebrated as Chez Eelco and now is the chance to own a slice of the “house of cool” for yourself. Eelco Boswijk – who owned Chez Eelco on Trafalgar St from 1964 until he retired in 2002 – recently donated his extensive art collection to Arts Council Nelson to auction off. The collection of 51 pieces is now up and displayed at the Refinery Art Gallery and open for bids on the silent auction. The artworks were acquired through his famous café business during the latter half of the last century, many being gifted to him by artists exhibiting at the Chez during this time. Arts Council Nelson manager Lloyd Harwood says the collection has many stories. “Everyone has a Chez story and this is a great chance to own

a piece of Nelson history.” Artists represented include some who still live and practice in the region, including Graeme Stradling, Spike, Bardi Ivory, renowned muralist Chris Finlayson and others who have left altogether and gone on to fine art careers such as Bodhi Vincent and Mata Bryce who is now highly regarded in the Swedish contemporary art scene. Lloyd says the family donated the works because they wanted them shared with the rest of Nelson, not stuck in storage and because Eelco was so heavily involved in the founding of the council. Eelco now lives in a retirement home and does not have the space to hang the entire collection. The auction closes at 12.30pm on Friday, June 1. To view or bid on the collection, either visit the gallery at Halifax St or visit

War-time blanket brings back memories Rosie Thomsen When Marthé Nalder pulled up the mattress on her old bed last month she saw an “ugly” old blanket – her family saw an heirloom. During World War II Marthé lived on Queens Rd, above Port Nelson, and remembers her father and brothers leaving to help the war efforts. She also remembers being among those fighting their own battles back home, struggling to keep her family comfortable on a shoestring budget. During the war, farming produce was bought directly from farmers by the government and sold to the UK, causing wool prices in New Zealand to soar. The shortage meant that Marthé couldn’t afford to buy blankets, so in a show of good ole kiwi ingenuity, made her own – out of old socks. “We used to darn all our socks in those days,” says Marthé. “They were all wool. But when the darns start wearing out, it’s time the socks were tossed out. But the tops were alright, and they were wool, so I thought why couldn’t we have a warm cover?” Marthe made a blanket from the old socks and had it on the bed all through the war years, until her family could buy blankets again. The socks came from all over the community in blacks and navy blues, even grey squares with blue stripes from Nelson College. The blanket’s use since the war has been hardly glamorous, used as a mattress protector on top of her wire bed frame. It was only rediscovered when Marthé, with the help of her youngest son and his wife, took down her old bed. “We took the mattress off, and I said ‘Oh, there’s my sock blanket’ and they said ‘It’s an heirloom!’ They got quite excited about it. They suggested it go to a museum; it’s sixty seven years old.” Marthe says she isn’t sure what she is going to do with the blanket but will seek advice from her family before putting it back under the bed.

I would like to thank all those who had the courage to vote for change at the recent amalgamation referendum. It was extremely pleasing to see so many vote “yes” in Nelson, a majority of 57 per cent of you were in favour of the proposed amalgamation model, in favour of looking to a better way forward for our region, thank you. I also know that there were many of you unfortunately ticked “no” to a union but were actually supportive of amalgamation but you were not happy with some aspects of the union model put forward. So to reassure all of you either in favour and or supportive of amalgamating our councils, it will happen. So in the interim we will be working with other councils looking at how we can develop meaningful shared service arrangements to help drive efficiencies and cost savings. It’s critical that we actively explore amalgamation options to help keep rates affordable for all our residents and deliver a unified vision for our one region so that all future generations of Nelsonians can stay, live, and work in our region. Aldo Miccio, Mayor of Nelson. There has been some coverage lately criticising the advice that I provided to the council in respect

to Maori wards. My original advice to the council was based on expert legal opinion that I received. Back in December, and publicly reported at the time, a second (independent) legal opinion was also sought in respect to the Maori ward matter and process. That second legal opinion was tabled, debated and formally accepted by the elected council in a public session. That independent legal advice endorsed the original advice I gave to the council. The council debate is recorded in the public minutes of the council. This is all a simple matter of facts and public record. Keith Marshall, former CEO of Nelson City Council. The outcome of the Maori ward vote is a vote of no confidence in Nelson City Council. The current council should resign. Councillors and the mayor were told well before the vote that a poll would be a waste of money, and that the outcome was already clear. However, it was evident at council meetings that the council was not listening, and that few councillors care about being prudent with ratepayers’ money. Ratepayers need to write to the minister of local government, and ask that this council be replaced by a commissioner until the next election. One incompetent or bad decision is being made after another, with no concern for the public view or the public interest. Dan McGuire, Nelson.

Local off to the real Miyazu Eugene Chow has been selected to travel and work in Nelson’s sister city, Miyazu in Japan. He is pictured at Miyazu Gardens in Nelson with the organisers of the exchange Jacqui Jury, left, and Julia Achilles. Photo: Andrew Board. Nelson man Eugene Chow admits he shed a little tear when he was told he would be Nelson’s representative to its city sister in Japan, spending six months working in Miyazu. A tear quickly followed by a jump for joy. Twenty year old Eugene was selected to travel to Japan as part of a sister city work exchange that was first started in the 1990s and has been reinstated this year after a decade-long absence. He earned the spot, beating eight other applicants, after a story about the scheme appeared in Nelson Weekly two months ago. Eugene says he can’t wait to get over there and

travelling to Japan has been a lifelong dream. He studied the language for three years at Nayland College as well. He will be working at a traditional Japanese inn for at least six months and leaves in June. Exchange organiser Jacqui Jury says she is thrilled Eugene is going. “He will fit in really well, his personality and humour, along with his really strong knowledge of the language will mean he will have a ball.” Eugene says he’s looking forward to travelling the country, learning a new culture and tasting the food. “The food is the first thing I want to try, I can’t wait.”

Motoring Tips DEDICATED TO BETTER MOTORING Five winter driving tips from MTA Driving in the winter can sometimes be a daunting prospect. Good vehicle preparation, knowledge and driving technique are critical. Here are some winter driving tips for ensuring your journey is as safe, enjoyable and hazard-free as possible.

Make sure your vehicle is winter ready Is your vehicle approaching the time for its next scheduled service? If so, don’t put it off. Book your vehicle in for a pre-winter check with your local MTA member business. The experts know what to look for – oil levels, heating and cooling systems, wiper blades, filters, battery and tyre pressures amongst other things. By doing this you’ll have peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle is ready for the conditions. Experience shows that if a car is going to fail, it’s most likely to do so when in the harshest operating conditions – and for most owners, that’s the winter months. Tyres All the control you have is delivered through four palm-sized patches of rubber where the tyres meet the road. Start by making sure your tyres are in good condition; they have at least the minimum tread depth and are free from cuts and damage. Make sure your tyres are properly inflated. Overinflation can reduce the gripping action of tyres because the tread will not meet the road surface as it was designed to do. If you’re going to be driving in the snow, make sure you have the correct chains and snow tyres (if fitted) – it’s now the law that when you use snow tyres that all four are in fact snow tyres. When you’re driving in wintry conditions it is essential to keep the tyres rolling and not allow them to spin or slide. Good visibility Reduced visibility means you have to budget extra time for every drive. Before you hit the road make sure you can see out of every window and mirror. Use a proper windscreen scraper or de-icer to remove ice from your vehicle. Do not use warm wa-

ter, as this may cause your windscreen to crack. People often only associate air-conditioning with staying cool during the summer months, but it’sFor equally vital for ensuring good visibility during the colder months. Get your system checked. And make sure people can see you. Ensure your lights are all working properly and are correctly adjusted. Get them on early and turn them off late; you may choose to keep them on at all times. Use your main beam, and remember to keep them dipped when travelling in foggy conditions; blasting them on to high beam only results in the light being reflected straight back at your eyes, making visibility even harder. Know what to expect. If you’re travelling out of town make sure you know what you’re in for. Bridges and overpasses ice over faster than normal roads. Why? The earth is warm and normal roads have the warmth of the earth underneath. Shady areas cool more quickly than areas in full sun. The shadows from large trees, buildings and mountains can cause isolated icy spots. Know when to accelerate and when to brake When accelerating, push the accelerator pedal gently. If you do sense wheel-spin, ease back on the pedal immediately until you feel the tyres grip again. Apply the same principle when braking. Brake gently at first then increase the pedal pressure progressively. You can brake quite hard as long as the application is smooth. Remember, don’t steer if you are braking or accelerating and vice versa. If your vehicle is fitted with ABS and/or a Stability Control system, make sure you know what this can do for you. Get experience of your vehicle’s capabilities and how it reacts, before you get stuck. Things you might have with you While having things like a first aid kit and fire extinguisher make good sense at any time of the year, there are things that you should consider especially important for the colder months. A torch, perhaps a mat or cover to protect you from the ground should you need to change a tyre. Protective gloves and some form of reflective warning device are always a good idea too.

“You “You cancan always always trust trust anan MTA MTA member member to to getget thethe jobjob done done right.” right.” Greg Murphy Greg Murphy

Driving safely at night means that you need to be prepared, stay alert and use plenty of common sense. Here are a few tips to ensure your night time journey is as safe as it can be. • Start with the basics. The law requires that you drive with your headlights on, 30 minutes after sunset, until 30 minutes before sunrise, and at any other time when you can’t clearly see a person or vehicle 100 metres away. If you are riding a motorcycle or scooter – it’s lights on at all times. • Ensure all your lights, internal and external are working properly. Don’t just rely on your warrant of fitness (WoF) check to tell you this. Bulbs and wiring can fail at any time. • Ensure your headlights are properly aligned and pointing to the correct parts of the road. If you are unsure, have someone qualified and with the correct equipment to check them. • Keep your headlights and windshield clean. Being able to see other cars and be seen by other drivers is a big help. Some older cars suffer from a yellowing of their headlights which reduces the light output significantly. You can usually have the clarity of your headlight lenses easily brought back to a reasonable standard – check with your local paint and panel shop. • Don’t exceed the capability of your headlights. This is especially important on rural roads where there are fewer on road and roadside markings. Instead of the two-second rule, think about doubling that, so that you build yourself in a

much greater margin for safety. • The high beam in a modern car provides a very strong light over a considerable distance – make sure you use them properly. Used correctly, when there’s no oncoming traffic or you are not following behind another vehicle, the light provided on high beam can give you more time to react to hazards. • Don’t look directly at oncoming headlights – doing so can blind you for up to five seconds until your eyes adjust. Instead concentrate on the edges of oncoming traffic and any bright objects. • Keep your eyes moving and look around. Move your eyes from side to side, rather than just concentrating on the centreline and the road ahead. This helps to keep your eyes adjusted to the dark and avoid falling victim to what’s sometimes called ‘highway hypnosis,’ a state in which reaction time is significantly slower. • New Zealanders are an active bunch, and many are out on the roads at times you mightn’t expect them. Watch out for walkers, runners and cyclists. • Stop driving if you feel tired. Find a safe spot, well off the road, and have a break or a sleep.

Watson Automotive Ph: 547 9090

Driving at Night - It’s anything but a dark art. While most of our driving is done during columns 10daylight columns broadsheet broadsheet hours, statistics press showpress that driving at night involves greater risks. Figures from the Ministry of Transport (MoT) show that in 2010, more than 40 percent of all fatal car accidents in New Zealand occurred between 7.00pm and 7.00am.

D e D iD c at e Dei cDat toe Db to e t tb er e tm t eoto r mroto i n gr i n g

While there’s a whole host of caffeine based energy drinks around these days, they are no substitute for rest or sleep. Stop every two hours for a break out of the car even if you’re not feeling sleepy. Don’t start your road trip tired. • Lastly, remember, your headlights aren’t on your car for decoration – they are there to help you see and be seen. If you think the conditions require your headlights to be on, turn on the main lights. Park or side lights are there for just that - parking.

Nelson College holds off Waimea There were no hiccups just plenty of bitten finger nails as the Nelson College first XV edged local rivals Waimea College 16-9 in the Press Cup round three match on Saturday. Nelson College went into the match unbeaten, while Waimea College had yet to a win a game. Despite vastly contrasting score lines in the previous two rounds, the favourites tag is generally thrown out the window when Nelson’s two best teams dog it out. 2012 was no different with the home side starving Nelson of possession in an error-ridden first 35 minutes. Waimea College first five Luca Roden coolly landed a brace of first half penalties before Nelson College struck back with a try to left winger Ricci Persico. Mitchell Drummond converted the try to give Nelson a 7-6 lead at half time. Mitchell, suffering a back complaint throughout most of the second half, slotted three penalties to give Nelson College a slightly comfortable seven point buffer. Waimea landed a late penalty but the Nelson could not be broken as last year’s runners up claimed an important and tough victory.

The Nelson College First XV has a tough Press Cup Campaign ahead of it. This weekend is one of the few weekends in the winter when it will not be playing rugby; instead, many of the boys will be delivering firewood to help raise money towards their considerable travel costs. Now in its third year, the Nelson College Firewood fundraiser brings together over 80 teams in 30 different sports codes. Last year they managed to deliver over 250 trailer loads to parents, Old Boys and supporters of the College. Mark Vinsen, Director of Community Relations, says those who buy the firewood are pleased to see the boys working hard to raise the money for the travel expenses. This month they have helped the First XI hockey team and the First XV rugby team, as well as some of the top sportsmen who have been selected to represent

the South Island in their chosen sport. The fundraiser takes some of the strain off families of the players, who would otherwise face several thousand dollars in travel costs when they compete internationally. “The fundraiser also teaches the boys about teamwork and reliability, Many of their customers are retired, and Mark and the boys take pride in helping others through the service they can offer. For a small charge they will even stack the wood in the wood sheds, providing even more convenience and assistance to those who are elderly or have busy schedules. Contact Mark on 021 100 7523, or e-mail mv@nelsoncollege. to order.

NZ touch player and new Stoke recruit Rebecca Kersten is set to make her Stoke debut this month. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Touch star links up with Stoke Phillip Rollo Rebecca Kersten has never played rugby in her life, but she has already been touted as an Olympic prospect for the New Zealand Women’s Rugby Sevens team. The 16 year old Nelson College for Girls student is one of four Nelson players earmarked for New Zealand selection, so she has linked up with the Stoke Rugby Club hoping the next four years will get her on the plane to Rio de Janeiro. The New Zealand Rugby Union has been on the search for female athletes, even if they haven’t previously been involved in rugby. The NZRU’s Go4Gold programme is currently scouring the country for hidden gems and stopped off at Trafalgar Park to check out Nelson’s best two months ago. Rebecca and three other players from that trial will move on to the next phase of selection. A fortnight ago Rebecca made her debut for the Women’s Touch Blacks in a three-match test series against Australia in New South Wales. Despite being the youngest member of the squad, Rebecca was handed a start in the first up 4-3 win, which was the first time New Zealand had beaten Australia in ten years. Australia found its

stride in the remaining two fixtures, however, securing the series with 3-4 and 3-7 victories. Rebecca was surprised to be handed a starting berth. “That was only the second time the New Zealand Women’s [Touch Blacks] have beaten Australia in its history. That was a huge thing for us,” she says. Rebecca’s next focus will shift from the noncontact summer version of the game through to full on contact, just so she can fulfil her childhood dream of going to the Olympics. “I haven’t had to tackle anyone or get tackled yet so I’m looking forward to my first hit, just to get it over with and out of the way.” The four players will also join the Tasman Makos Academy. When she was younger she thought the Olympic quest would probably feature a hockey stick. With rugby sevens to be included in 2016, she has chosen a new path. “It’s completely new but I’m really looking forward to it. My ultimate dream is to make the Olympics. It’s been my goal ever since I was a kid. Hockey was always the dream, but now that my touch has really kicked on and since sevens has been included, it seems the most realistic option.”

Tough week for senior sides A storming second half by a resurgent Stoke was not quite enough, losing 33-37. Accessman Stoke division one team hauled back a 20 point deficit to come oh so close and would have walked off Greenmeadows feeling rather disappointed. After a woeful first 60 minutes, including a struggling line out, Stoke launched a frontal assault lead up front by Steve Kerr, Ray Packer, Craig Groome and Mike Tyler who took the game to the opposition with ball in hand, providing Stoke with the necessary front foot ball. Chad Lowrie also kept the scoreboard ticking over with a fantastic and accurate kicking display. Tevita Koloamatangi again impressed with another unrelenting performance especially with ball in hand, proving a real handful for the Huia defence. But at the end of the day Stoke just ran out of time to snatch victory. The division two side also felt heartache, losing to rivals Waimea Old

Boys at Jubilee Park. After looking rather sluggish in the first half Waimea capitalised on a steady and strengthening southwesterly breeze and some Stoke errors to win 34-22. Stoke had to play without its captain and first five Jake Curtis and watched a fired up home side overrun a half time lead to win the game. Stoke still got a bonus point for four tries though. The Stoke women’s team rounded out a miserable day for Stoke fans, also losing to Waimea, last year’s defending champions. The intensity was fierce first up as the two sides worked to gain the upper hand, with Waimea crossing for the first try. Stoke's backline began to find their rhythm and confidence, with standout centre Moana Forbes contributing well. It was a fairly tight match for the most part, with errors at crucial times proving to be Stokes’ undoing. Waimea capitalised on their opportunities and came away with the 36-19 win.

Green machine on track Phillip Rollo The ball is well and truly rolling for last year’s defending champions Wakatu Marist. The Green Machine is currently sitting fourth place on the Car Company division one standings and is unbeaten in the first two rounds of the Bayleys Tasman Trophy, following Saturday’s 3013 victory over Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers. Nelson versus Nelson clashes in the Tasman Trophy also account for points in the local division one competition, and a maximum points victory in Brightwater has seen it edge closer to the leading pack. Marist was always confident coming up against second place Wanderers after putting 45 points on Renwick last week. Things started brightly for Marist in Brightwater, finding itself two tries ahead courtesy of loose forwards Joe Yalayala and Gary Redmond. Gary’s try came from an intercept.

Samoan international Jeremy Sua had another outstanding game at halfback, with outsiders Kieran Fonotia and Latham Jones having a field day. Marist coach Nick Bright says the side targeted Wanderers’ forward pack and once they got the upper hand, space was easy to spot in their defensive patterns. Kieran’s kicking game from open play was again outstanding and his enormous punt was utilised with perfection. Latham clocked up his ninth try of the season after a well worked solo effort, keeping the title of the competition’s top try scorer for another week, in just his first year out of school. His efforts came after Joe had dotted down in the corner for his second of the match. Marist was the first side in the competition to put 30 points on Wanderers, who have the best defensive record in Nelson. The message to all other club sides in Nelson is clear, don’t write off the Green Machine.

Got a Sport Nelson student wins Story? mountainbike champs Jake Glover’s first place in the cross country ensured all other riders had a mountain to climb if they had any chance of taking overall points. But another first place, this time in the downhill, handed the Nelson College student the Under-19 Tasman Secondary School Mountain Bike Championship at the Codgers Mountain Bike Park

on Friday. Jake finished the cross country in one hour and 14 minutes and the downhill in 5 minutes 54.7 seconds. Nayland College’s Mitchell Faulkner was first overall in the Under-14 boys grade. Mitchell’s second placing in the cross country and first place in the downhill gave him a 13 point buffer over Nelson College’s Ryan Birkett.

Coming Soon

Nelson North Lions Club member Dave Familton with the Nelson Passport that the club is selling. Photo: Andrew Board.

Lions create Nelson ‘passport’ The Nelson North Lions Club is selling passports, don’t worry though it’s not the illegal kind. The club has attracted sponsorship from local businesses and put together a Nelson passport. The “passport” folds out and allows the owner to put their personal information on, Dave says he has had one for almost ten years. “They are great, especially when travelling, all your

information, including medical details, can go there and it’s easier than having to carry all sorts of paper in your wallet.” The club is selling the passports for $3 each or two for $5. Money raised from the passports will be used for projects at the Lions Playground at Tahunanui and will be sold at the Saturday market or by calling Dave on 547 5548.

Each week photos from the museum’s “glass plate” collection will run in Nelson Weekly to try to find out more about them. Right: Master William Westbrook Squires, Nelson Provincial Museum, Davis and Nairn Collection; 6552. Below: Gala Day Nelson 2 Sept 1915. Nelson Provincial Museum, F N Jones Collection: 311326.
