Dear Editor It’s time to protect our reserves, especially Mt. Karioi.  In the last couple of years, I have noticed hacking of our  bush (kawa kawa etc.) especially under pungha trees. This  is illegal. Whoever is doing this in our reserves (especially  Upper Wainui, Bryant Home), stop it. This is for our native  birds (kiwi’s, fantails, insects and especially us.) And what  makes our ecosystem, if you keep hacking away, we have  lost. Please  let’s  protect  our  reserves  for  birds  and  future  generations to enjoy. The  mountain  is  all  we  have  left.  Raglan  stop  this  rape. Protect this last piece of beautiful bush on Mt. Karioi and  all reserves in NZ. Let’s replant our bush please. IJ Regnier, Raglan

A Collective Approach to Tourism Marketing As the last few weeks have shown, when the weather’s right, Raglan transforms into a tourist mecca. But, as the earlier “summer” season has shown, we would be unwise to rely solely on the weather to attract visitors and customers to our businesses. To change the traditionally slow periods over the winter months we need to think differently.

Girl Power: All smiles before the race

Last Sunday,  a  small  contingent  of  nine  Raglan  women  traveled  to  Auckland  to  compete  in  the  Contact  TriWomen  All  Female  Triathlon  Series  held  at  Point  Chevalier. Starting  out  as  a  new  year’s  resolution  for  !"#$%&' ()"*+,' -.' /0,-' 1.2&30' "34' 5-' "0"&367' -8,' triathlon  involved  a  300m  swim,  7.6km  bike  followed by a 3km run. “I found the website for the TriWomen series  and I thought it looked nice and not so intimidating  being an all­girls triathlon,” says Jacqui. Recruiting a group of like­minded women who  were also recent mothers like herself, Jacqui and  the  women  trained  for  around  3  months  prior  to  the event. Waking up at 5:30 in the morning, six days a  week, the women trained hard and were rewarded  by achieving what they set out to do. “Just being able to set a goal and achieve it and 

being able to achieve it with other women was a  highlight,  “  said  participant  Celeste  Duston,  “It  proved that we could do it.” With  many  of  the  group  having  had  children  in the past few years, it was a huge motivation for  them  to  get  back  into  the  routine  of  getting their  bodies really moving and working up a sweat. /' 9-:;' 4&<5#%)-' -.' =%-' >.%*;,)<' 5*;-' ?8,3' >.%' have kids so it was quite nice to just do it instead  of  making  excuses.  I  really  enjoyed  training  and  getting out of bed every morning and getting into a  routine  ­ I think the other girls pushed themselves  pretty hard too,” says Jacqui. Now that the triathlon is done and dusted, some  of  the  women  are  looking  for  another  challenge  with  some  of  the  girls  setting  their  sights  on  the  grueling Karioi Classic in July. A  big  congratulations  go  out  to  Celeste,  Rachel,  Charlene,  Angela,  Jacqui,  Tanya,  Fiona,  Tracey and Renee for their efforts at the Contact  TriWomen Triathlon.      Maki Nishiyama

What can we do to smooth over these choppy and !"#!$%#&' ()!*%"!!' +),-)#-*$%!. It’s easy to shrug your shoulders and concede that you can’t control the weather and submit to the inevitable downturn. However, the Raglan Chamber and it’s members believe we can make a difference by engaging in some time proven, collective marketing activities. Rather than each business spending extraordinary amounts of money on advertising, we can !""#$"%&$&'("%&)'($("$'*'&+",'$)-,$.','/0$1&"2$-,$'11')03*'$ marketing campaign that costs very little to operate. Our new i-deal promotion is a cooperative initiative which focuses on low cost, often unconventional and creative marketing strategies. This type of marketing relies on time, energy and imagination rather than a big marketing budget. The Chamber is now developing a cohesive marketing strategy that will promote Raglan in engaging ways that expand our traditional visitor markets domestically and internationally. We are very fortunate to have a brand new i-site located in Raglan and an i-site located in Huntly on the busiest roadway in our region, SH 1.$ 4%&$ /&(0$ )"##')03*'$ 2-&5'03,6$ effort utilises the i-sites and is the launching of the Discover Raglan i-deal campaign. The goal of the promotion is to leverage the locations and the staff expertise of the 2 Waikato Enterprise Agency backed i-sites to give visitors to the region an incentive to Discover Raglan during the traditionally quieter trading months of June -September. The incentive for travellers will be a value added Raglan Business i-deal card offering promotions and off season discounts from a wide range of participating Raglan businesses i.e. accommodation, eateries, shops, activities and studios. Businesses marketing collectively through the i-deal card will create a substantial enticement for a visitor to come to Raglan and to “stay and play” longer. This campaign will be run on a shared low cost basis - only $30 for participating businesses. A typical i-Deal business promotion can take the form of a straight % discount or an added value feature such as, ‘buy 1 get one free’ etc. You are encouraged to be creative to enhance the spend and stay of these new customers. For more information on this promotion or CoC membership go to our website at Please contact Anthea at Raglan’s i-site 825-0556 or by Email with your i-deal. Act NOW! We need your i-deal information by 11 May.

With a  hikoi  travelling  down  the  North  Island  to  protest  against  asset  sales  and  other  ventures  like  seabed  exploration  and  drilling  it  becomes  clear  that  the  Government  is  out  of  line  with  many  in  the  electorate.  This seems odd since it is not  long  since  we  had  an  election  with  National  getting  back  in  with  a  substantial  majority  over  any  other  party.  Asset  sales  were  clearly  in  the  policy outline and none of the  seabed  issues  are  particularly  new.  One  comment  has  been  that  poor  voter  turnout  was 

an important  factor  in  the  election  result,  so  perhaps  we  are now suffering the effects of  apathy.  In  addition,  John  Key  has  developed  such  a  positive  persona  that  people  feel  he  is  a pair of safe political hands in  %'+.%.7"%$$*'(4&54$1.(':)&$8;'?(' is  certainly  worth  considering  whether our democracy is in a  safe state if too much emphasis  is placed on a leader, based on  his  public  persona.  The  path  from popular leader to tyrant is  the  policy  of  the  people  we  a well­trodden one. elected.  A  better  way  to  look  It  might  be  argued  that  at  it  is  like  a  warning  to  the  the  hikoi  is  anti  democratic  present  government  that  since it is essentially opposing  the  electorate  is  waking  up
