Plenty of highlights at City2Surf THOUSANDS JOINED the movement at the iconic The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate on Sunday. About 11,000 people crossed

the finish line, each achieving a personal goal, Star Media general manager Steve McCaughan said. “The fastest came across the line in under 47 minutes and the last

were still coming through around noon – but it doesn’t matter how long they took, the point is, it was successful for everyone who participated.”

In spite of the poor weather forecast, the rain held off. “After 41 years [of the City2Surf] it still hasn’t rained, isn’t that great?” said Mr McCaughan.

Both the 14km and 6km options were popular, but the 6km route saw the most growth with many families choosing to give it a go. •Turn to page 4

THAT’S ODD A SOAP opera super-fan hasn’t had a holiday for many years because she is terrified she will miss an episode of Australian television show Neighbours. Kerry Sturgeon, 42, has watched more than 7000 episodes of the hit soap – totalling over 3500 hours or 210,000 minutes – 145 days of her life. The English mother-of-three says she didn’t even let giving birth stop her from tuning into the drama. Mrs Sturgeon began tuning into Neighbours – which has now celebrated its 30-year anniversary – when she was in school and says she fell in love with the happy-go-lucky characters. Mrs Sturgeon said: “I’ve never missed an episode. Not a single one. “I started watching it in school. We would come home and have our tea and watch Neighbours.” Neighbours is broadcast in more than 50 countries around the world.

Trust set up to redevelop Botanic Gardens By Gabrielle Stuart

A NEW trust has been set up to privately raise the funds needed to redevelop parts of the Botanic Gardens. Projects like new gardens or bridges within the gardens were planned before the earthquakes, but had to be set aside because the city council did not have enough money to pay for them. But the nine trustees behind the Christchurch Botanic Gardens Charitable Trust, which was started late last year, hope to raise

the money themselves for the projects. The city council will decide tomorrow if it will sign an agreement with the trust, and what powers the trust will be given. Trustee Alan Morgan, who is also president of the Friends of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, said the gardens “ticked all the boxes as a public park”, but not as a botanic gardens. “I started working there 60 years ago as an apprentice, and over that time, apart from the new building, there has been very little capi-

tal development. They are pretty much what they were 50 or 60 years ago.” Projects include building an extra bridge to make the layout of the gardens flow better, or creating an interactive children’s garden. They could range in cost from about $500,000 to several million. Mr Morgan said there were many “uniquely Canterbury stories” which could be celebrated in the gardens. Those include seven different native plants in Christchurch which could not be found any-

where else in the world, and could be featured in the gardens, he said. The trustees come from a variety of backgrounds, from people involved in the gardens for a long time, to those with legal or accounting backgrounds. Mr Morgan said the trust aimed to focus on major donors or benefactors, and he believed the funds could be collected reasonably quickly once projects were approved. He said getting public support for the plans would be important.

Desperate funding bid for Theatre Royal

Homeless shelter cost THE CITY council will decide tomorrow if it is willing to put almost $350,000 toward temporary housing for the homeless. The seven-bedroom City Mission shelter was initially costed at less than $200,000, but that more than doubled because of building issues. The Ministry of Building Innovation and Employment has

By Emma-Jane McLennan

THE ISAAC Theatre Royal needs your help as the time ticks away on its fundraising campaign. It needs to raise more than $120,000 in the next 22 days, or it will lose out on a $150,000 funding boost from the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust. It is essential the money is raised for the future of the theatre, chief executive Neil Cox said. “If we don’t, everything we have been donated will be refunded. Everything will be for nothing.” The $40 million theatre rebuild has seen the Christchurch icon rise from the rubble, but now that it’s back up and running, it needs to reduce its debt. Commercial loans of $2 million are taking their toll on the theatre’s financial situation, said Mr Cox. “Demand on the building is quite high at the moment, but we want to ensure it’s available for years to come. Because we’re servicing such large loans, and we don’t earn much money from performances, that is quite difficult.” It has set a goal of $300,000 to

pledged $100,000 toward the project, so long as the city council also confirms its support before the end of this month. Applications have been made for $256,028.08 from the Mayoral Earthquake Relief Fund as well as $38,971.93 from the Housing Fund and $53,002 from the Metropolitan Discretionary Fund.

The CEAT has pledged to give $150,000 to the cause – so long as the theatre raises the other $150,000 by April 17. The Boosted campaign set up for the theatre works on an ‘all or nothing’ approach – if the total isn’t raised in time, pledged donations will be refunded. More than $60,000 has been raised so far – $30,000 in public donations, matched by the CEAT.

Mr Cox said a leap of faith was needed to rebuild the theatre, but now it needs people to reach into their own pockets and help out. “We knew we were doing the right thing by providing a venue in the central city. It’s for the people of Christchurch, not us. We want to ensure the future of arts in the city.” • You can donate to the cause at boosted.org.nz/projects/takethe-stage

Car fire disrupts traffic RED HOT: A car caught on fire at the corner of Bealey Ave and Colombo St yesterday morning, after a suspected engine fault.

Ash decision delayed A DECISION on whether Cantabrians can scatter the ashes of their loved ones in public parks and reserves is likely to be delayed again. A city council hearings panel looked at banning the scattering of ashes in many local parks and reserves, because Maori cultural protocols meant local Iwi would not be able to use them freely if it was allowed to continue.

But the Funeral Directors Association said a ban would hurt those who scattered ashes because they could not afford burial plots. The panel has recommended that the city council approve the rest of the parks and reserves bylaw tomorrow, but consult further with the community before it makes a decision on scattering ashes.

Driver pleads not guilty A TRUCK driver charged with the death of a cyclist pleaded not guilty before a registrar at the district court on Monday. David Peter Connell, 50, was charged with careless driving causing death following a crash on

The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate

City2Surf highlights •From page 1 Serious runners, joggers and walkers alike all crossed the same finish line at Ferrymead, where free entertainment, food and rides for the children kept everyone happy. Prize-giving brought more highlights, with a woman winning a two-night stay in Sydney, and others winning some great prizes. The best reaction came from prizewinner Amelia Boys, 8, who won a Samsung Galaxy Ace 3, worth $200, from a Smiths City prize draw. The young girl’s reaction was priceless: Her jaw dropped and a massive grin spread across her face as she was handed her prize. “This is my very first phone!” she squealed, before jumping off the stage and running to her family, waving the box in the air. As well as putting a smile on thousands of Cantabrians’ faces, the City2Surf also supported Starship children’s hospital, and money was raised for the Heart Foundation through the 6km “heart racer” sponsorship option. Sponsors Mike Pero Real Estate, The Heart Foundation, All Right?, Pams, The Athlete’s Foot, Brooks, ThermaTech, Snap Fitness, Smiths City, Sport Canterbury, Sportsmed, Party Warehouse, Cockram Kia, Pump and Red Bus offered prizes and helped make the event possible.

City is taking shape YOU CAN’T help but notice exciting and positive announcements being made in our city. As a Newstalk ZB talkback host, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the daily grind of negativity. After all, humans react stronger to negative news than positive stories. It’s just how we’re wired. Yes, we’re living in a city where there are still frustrating issues with housing, and yes the roads are awful at times, but I want to indulge in some of the wonderful investment being made in this city, that I hope will help us all feel a little more positive. Developers of a $25 million adventure park in the Port Hills will start construction this year. Canadian company, Select Evolution, will build the park on 358ha of forested land between Dyers Pass, Worsleys and the Summit Rds. I’m not much of a mountain-biker, but I’m genuinely excited about this and I know many adventure sport enthusiasts who can’t wait. When I occasionally walk up the Port Hills, I’m amazed as just how many mountain-bikers I see along the way. They’re going to love this. The Christchurch Adventure Park will be the world’s first purposebuilt, year-round, chairlift accessed, downhill mountain-bike park. An 1.8km lift will ascend over 427m vertically and will be the first purpose-built lift of its kind. In addition to this, the park will host a range of complementary attractions to ensure a broad appeal,

Chris LynCh newstalkZB 100.1FM|8:30 - noon

PROGRESS: Public transport is being taken seriously with the new bus exchange under construction in the central city. including lodge accommodation, restaurant, retail, rock climbing, pump track, sightseeing and a thrilling mountain coaster. Another major boost for the rebuild has been the unveiling of plans for the largest private development in the central city. The $140 million Crossing, which is being promoted as a world-class retail precinct. It’s expected to be

completed within 20 months. Developer Philip Carter says the Crossing is good news for other investors considering opportunities in the central city and wanting reassurance that significant progress is being made in the CBD. He’s right. Investors have been wanting to see confidence from other developers before taking the plunge and risking their cash in central Christchurch. Residents of Christchurch’s eastern suburbs have something to smile about too. Councillors agreed to proceed with the design of the Eastern Recreation and Sport Centre facility to be located at QE II Park along with Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools. The Ministry of Education recently announced QE II Park was the preferred site for the two schools. Burwood-Pegasus Community Board chairwoman Andrea Cummings says: “It’s going to be exciting for the community to see how everything comes together as the actual design gets under way.” There are still some residents who need convincing that the

ground is safe. However, Geo technical investigations to determine the suitability of the QE II Park site were carried out last year. Ground improvement works at QE II Park are scheduled to run in mid-2016, with construction scheduled to begin in late 2016. The facility is expected to open in 2018. There’s more good news for Christchurch’s strong sporting community with the approval of a $100 million sports hub at the Nga Puna Wai reserve. It will include an athletics track, hockey turfs, indoor and outdoor tennis courts and sports fields. It’s great to see the bus exchange taking dramatic shape, and that will give residents some confidence the city is taking public transport seriously. Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee told me on Newstalk ZB last week that there are plenty of large scale private development announcements on the way, and that got me excited. Yes, housing and road issues continue to plague this city, I’m all too aware of this, and continue to interview those responsible, alleviating the stress. However, it’s a chicken and egg situation. I’ve chosen to get excited about developments that I generally wouldn’t give two hoots about. Why? It’s good for mental health and there is nothing wrong with getting a little excited about seeing a struggling city finally start to take shape.

I love it when customers get back in touch. It’s always exciting to hear how they used their settlement and what they’re up to now. There’s nothing better than knowing that you helped someone to move on.

More than 75% of our customers who have settled their earthquake insurance claims did so with a cash settlement. To find out what’s involved and what this might mean for you, email resolve@iag.co.nz today.

Email your view, in 200 words or less, to editor@starmedia.kiwi

The Anglican Diocese of Christchurch announced last week it was considering rebuilding the Christ Church Cathedral in the same Gothic style, but with modern materials, using a design by architect Sir Miles Warren. Gabrielle Stuart asked people what they thought of the plan, and what they believed should happen to the Cathedral.

Patricia Blazey, retired, of Beckenham: “I would love to see them make it safe but leave it there as it is, and build a new one beside it. They have done something like that in Perth, and it looks really beautiful.”

Ian McKenzie, retired, of St Albans: “I would rather someone reconstruct it if it can be, because it is such an icon of the city. I think the plan would be great, so long as it still looks something like it was.”

Sue Clarke, retired, of Dallington: “If they reused some of the materials that would be nice, but I think it should come down. I don’t really mind what they build in its place, but I do mind it being left there like that.”

Rob Batterbee, digital delivery technician, of Burwood: “It depends on the cost. I would go with whatever option is cheapest. Some of the modern designs look pretty neat, but I think people loved Christchurch as it was, and want to see it restored as it was.”

Cora Morrison, office junior, of Casebrook: “I think you’ve got to do the best you can with the resources you’ve got, so I don’t think demolishing it would be the best plan. But if it is feasible I think rebuilding it in the same style would be worth it.”

Josh Lee, builder, of Edgeware: “I think it would look good if it was built exactly the same way, but you’ve got to move on eventually. I think it would be good if they used some bricks or panelling from the old building in the new one, though, maybe just as a feature.”

Truce Proudhon, truck driver, of Linwood: “It’s been an older building here for a long, long time, so I think they need to keep that feature of the city. I don’t think they should build anything modern, but I think they should make it stronger, definitely. If that means using modern materials that’s okay, as long as it looks the same.”

Robert Caldana, builder, of St Albans: “I think this is a good compromise. I think they’ve done a really nice job with the Knox Church, and I think this could be done something like that. I know the Cathedral is iconic but the money has to come from somewhere, and we’ve got to move forward. We can’t just leave it like this for another five years.”

Peer-to-peer lending Consumer Earn money by lending to Peer-to-peer lending has landed in New Zealand – so what is it all about? And can you benefit? Emma-Jane McLennan reports Peer-to-peer lending could make you a lot of money – but you’ll need to sharpen up your financial knowledge first. That is the call from financial expert David Chaston (below), of financial advice website interest. co.nz. “You need to put some effort in. It’s not for someone who doesn’t like risk.” Peer-to-peer, or P2P lending is the new kid on the block – offering an alternative to traditional banks, “loan sharks” and credit cards. It’s set to become a big business. Collective New Zealand household mortgage lending was worth almost $200 billion last year, while

consumer lending was worth more than $14 billion. Even if P2P lending commandeered just 0.1 per cent of these loans ($214 million), it would be worth a lot of money, said Mr Chaston. “The banks may not notice, but it’s still huge. It could end up being worth billions of dollars.” P2P company Harmoney set up shop in September, the first of its kind to be licensed in New Zealand. It had lent more than $2 million after just two weeks, and plans to lend $100 million in its first year, Harmoney chief executive Neil Roberts told interest.co.nz “On the borrower side we have a very strong plan we believe. We’ve already lent $2 million and in peer-to-peer terms that is one of the better, if not the best, consumer first couple of weeks in the world.” So what is P2P lending all about, and where did it come from? The recent financial recession saw many banks in the United Kingdom and United States pull out of lending, and increasing their credit card interest rates. At the same time, deposit rates hit rock-bottom. Consumers, fed up with banks, sought alternative

INNOVATIVE: Peer-to-peer lending allows multiple individuals or businesses to lend through an online platform, cutting out banks.​

sources of borrowing and investment, Consumer NZ reported. Enter P2P lending, a platform where borrowers and lenders are connected through an online middleman. It acts as a matchmaker, arranging the exchange through its website. It also does all the credit-checking, deals with repayments and interest payments, and chases up defaults. Because it’s online, the platform (or middleman) can avoid cost structures of traditional banks and offer better rates – to both borrowers and investors. Harmoney’s slogan “Borrow for

Less. Invest for more” appears to accurately sum up its qualities, but there are risks – especially for investors. The principle behind P2P lending is simple, either you borrow from a stranger at a lower rate than a bank would offer, or you lend money to a stranger in return for a higher rate you’d get from a bank. It appears to be a win-win, but as Mr Chaston explains, cutting out the banks means you’re taking a lot of risk upon yourself. “People who bank want good returns but no risk. With P2P

lending you could fund a car loan at 20 per cent interest, and you’ll get that 20 per cent minus fees, but you do suffer the risk of loss.” The real issue lies in education, he said. “I think too many investors, nice as they may be, are too lazy. They don’t educate themselves enough. Investors need to realise that if you’re going to get good returns you need to be quite educated on the credit risk of the loans you’re investing in.” People who borrow through Harmoney can borrow $1000$35,000 for three or five years, depending on the need. It has a credit-risk ranking system, grading its loans from A1 to F5 based on the risk involved. In December, an A1 (low-risk) loan with the site earned investors a gross interest rate of 9.99 per cent a year. An F5-graded loan earned an average 39.99 per cent. Harmoney says its average net return for investors is about 12 per cent. It takes a 1.25 per cent cut on the principal and interest payments before the investor gets their monthly payment. But while it looks good from the outset, investors do risk losing their money.

OLD: The former Central Library on Gloucester St has been demolished, and the city council will decide tomorrow whether to approve plans for a replacement on a new site near Cathedral Square.

strangers P2P providers aren’t free from failure – Quakle in the UK went under in 2011, leaving investors high and dry. China has seen a number of P2P lending websites close as borrowers defaulted. Loan defaults can be an issue. Zopa, a P2P lender in the UK, had a default rate of 0.39 per cent on loans it made in 2013. Harmoney has a forecast default rate based on the risk grade of the loan – the highest being 15.38 per cent on F5graded loans, and lowest being 0.08 per cent on A1 loans. It does expect the actual default rates to vary from the forecast, with an overall default rate of four per cent. That is a big warning sign, Mr Chaston said: “There’s usually no interest rate big enough to make up your loss if you lose all your capital.” Enter the magic word of investing – diversifying. Harmoney loans are split into $25 virtual “notes,” a method they call “fractionalisation.” That means you can split your $500 (minimum investment) across up to 20 different loans, spreading your invest-

ment so you don’t have all your eggs in one basket. If one loan defaults, you won’t be sunk. You could still earn a decent interest rate to make up for the loss. Harmoney also manages risk by assessing whether or not a borrower can pay back a loan – just like a bank would – and giving the borrower a grade based on their risk. In its first couple of weeks of lending, Mr Roberts estimated it was rejecting 70-80 per cent of applications it received for loans. “We target a prime bank grade customer that has got good credit and can afford to repay the loan,” he said. It is worthwhile for investors to look at, Mr Chaston said: “It’s a very good option.” By building a portfolio of loans that mature at different times you can create a regular income stream. While Harmoney is the first in New Zealand, an influx of P2P lending platforms are likely to hit the market soon, Mr Chaston said. “Three or four recently made applications to the Financial Markets Authority, but only one

was approved (Harmoney). I’d expect there will be about three or four P2P platforms by the end of the year, and about six or seven by the end of 2016.” He said that each lending platform will likely specialise in a particular loan type, such as debt consolidation or mortgages. “They’ll all be quite different – very much like how crowdfunding sites have gone. Some are big, some not so much.” But while borrowers will be attracted to the lower-interest loans, timing could become an issue. Those wanting a quick-fix loan for debt consolidation, or to buy a new car, are going to struggle with the “time mismatch,” Mr Chaston said. “Someone wanting to buy a boat, for instance, wants to know now [if they can get the money]. They like the boat, they want to go out to Diamond Harbour, and they can’t wait two weeks for it to get funded.” The loans take a little more time – as does researching them. • For more information go to consumer.org.nz and interest.co.nz.

Questions remain over Central Library budget By Gabrielle Stuart

PLANS FOR the new Central Library may be given the green light tomorrow, but there are still questions over the budget. Concept plans for a $85 million library off Cathedral Square have been investigated, and it is believed to be the best option for a central library. But the costs of building the library are likely to go over budget. The city councillors are due to decide tomorrow how much money they will approve for the project, and start the expressions of interest and tender process for the design and construction. Of the current $85 million budget, $75 million is contributed by the city council and $10 million, as well as the land, contributed by the Crown. In a report, which will be put to the city council on Thursday, Anchor Projects development director Peter Vause estimated that the cost could range from $83 to $88 million. “The new Central Library is antici-

pated to utilise the entire budget and provision of this floor area within the budget will prove challenging,” he said. The city council plans to own the library directly, but under current long-term forecasts that would mean the city council debt would be too high. Other options, such as leasing the library from a private investor or a council-owned trading organisation, which would own the building, could be looked at. The planned library would have a floor area of about 9850 sq m, which would include community space and possibly a cafe or retail area. The old 6800 sq m Gloucester St building was much smaller than central libraries in Auckland and Wellington, and plans to replace it were being discussed even before it was damaged in the earthquakes. The former building has been demolished, as the land is intended for the new convention centre.

Step back in time at Larnach Castle Dunedin’s Larnach Castle has been transformed through renovation. Ross Kiddie spent a night there in search of ghosts I’M NOT sure why, but my wife has had a long-term fascination with Dunedin’s Larnarch Castle. Perhaps she romanticises about how the moneyed classes once lived in a more genteel, bygone era, or it could be because the place is rumoured to be haunted. She first visited the castle at age 13 when it was largely neglected with only the ballroom having been renovated. Nine years ago she took our daughter on a holiday to Dunedin which targeted the chocolate delights of Cadbury World. As an aside, they paid the castle another visit, my wife was completely in awe of the transformation. Learning that accommodation and dining was now available at Larnarch Castle with the addition of The Lodge having been built in the castle grounds, she was eager to spend a night there. We seized the opportunity on a recent trip down south when we attended the annual Gibbston Valley Winery concert followed by the sights of Queenstown, a fabulous drive to Invercargill on the Southern Scenic Route continuing back on the coastal road through Balclutha to Dunedin. On arrival at Larnach Castle, and upon checking in, we placed the prerequisite order for dinner from a tempting three-course table d’hôte menu. The Lodge has 12 themed rooms, fortuitously we had booked the Rose Room which turned out to be a real find. Roses, of course, decorated the room, there are two huge beds, a sunken bathroom and a glorious view out to Port Chalmers. Our evening began with drinks in the library, the traditional men’s retreat after dinner (the ladies

Interestingly, this was also the room reputed to be where the decision was made to give women the vote in 1893, the first country in the world to do so. After mingling with our hosts and fellow diners, we were escorted into the music room, which is larger than the traditional dining room. The dining room only gets used for smaller groups. Our salad entree, beef and lamb main, and cheesecake dessert were all good choices, we and our 17 other fellow tourists dined at a long table amongst the original furnishings and olde worlde atmosphere. After our host prompted us to introduce ourselves to each other, she delivered a comprehensive dialogue of the history of the Larnarch family and the castle, and its environs, in-between each course of the meal. It was interesting and was delivered in an entertaining style. Larnach Castle was built between 1871 and 1887 as the residence of William Larnach, a prominent entrepreneur and politician. The complex contains 43 rooms, it required a staff of 46 servants. The ballroom was built as a 21st birthday present for Larnach’s favourite daughter Kate in 1887. She died at the age of 26 of

of

k e e w

typhoid, and her ghost is still reputed to haunt the ballroom. The ghost of Larnach’s first wife, Eliza, is also said by some to haunt the castle. The castle, which Larnach himself simply called “The Camp,” did not ensure his happiness. After a series of personal and financial setbacks he committed suicide at Parliament Buildings in 1898. Of course, the overnight experience includes a self-guided tour of the castle and property, you can

even download a smartphone app which will give you a recorded commentary as you pass through room to room. My wife and I chose the more traditional map/ guide which is just as informative. The tour takes around an hour and, as in our case, finished with a delicious cup of tea and cake in the ballroom, part of which contains a café. Accommodation at Larnach Castle is divided into two sections. The Lodge has the themed

rooms, or else you can choose the less expensive Stables which, as its name suggests, is a former stable block, complete with some of the adornments from its time. The mezzanine floor has six single/ double/twin rooms with shared bathroom. Below is the area set aside for breakfast, The Lodge and The Stables guests combine for an allyou-can-eat continental breakfast, in addition to friendly waiting staff taking orders for something cooked. We found breakfast to be very social as our dining companions from the previous night came and went in various stages. Limited car parking is available at the door of both complexes. Prices start at $160 per night for two adults for Stables accommodation, that includes castle tour and breakfast. Our account at The Lodge was $420 for two of us which included the tour of the castle, one night’s luxurious accommodation, predinner drinks, evening meals and breakfast. Drinks during dinner are an extra cost. We found it to be excellent value for money, however, we didn’t connect with the spirit world. And if a step back in time appeals to you as a traveller, take a guided tour of Olveston House, that is another interesting taste of Dunedin’s history.

It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2012 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

Star drivers battle in prestigious event

THIS WEEKEND 32 of the country’s best drivers will compete at Woodford Glen Speedway for the Battle of the Stocks crown. The event is one of New Zealand’s most prestigious super stock events which is being run for the 22nd time. Originally the brainchild of then promoter Jeanette Bolt, the big guns of the stockcar scene converged on the Glen some 22 years ago after the New Zealand Stockcar Championship at Invercargill. Rumney, Podjursky and Ellis just to name a few, brought a professionalism to stockcar racing that

had never been seen before at the Glen. More than two decades on and many battles later, this iconic show has continued to grow with drivers from all over New Zealand wanting the opportunity to enter the inviteonly battle. With no less than three past New Zealand champions, numerous grand prix winners, World 240 and Island champions, once again a star-studded field of New Zealand’s best superstock racers will again deliver racing action not to be missed. Heading the entry list is the

current 2NZ Peter Bengston of Palmerston North. He will be chased hard by current New Zealand Grand Prix champion Dale Robertson of Wellington, while South Island champion and local hero Malcolm Ngatai will keep the flying North Islanders honest. Past South Island champions Shane Harwood and Brett Nicholls of Nelson, will also fly the South Island flag along with Woodford locals Jacob Brownlees, Darrin Cox and Peter Ross. The racing will be held on Friday and Saturday nights with the action starting at 7pm.

FAST: Current 2NZ Peter Bengston driving his machine which he will be racing at Woodford Glen this weekend.

AVONSIDE GIRLS’ HIGH SCHOOL DRAGON BOAT TEAM 2015

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS AUCKLAND, 27-29 March 2015 The girls in the 2014-2015 Avonside Girls High School Dragon Boating Team have been training extremely hard throughout the summer to achieve really pleasing results. Our squad of 25 consists of a dedicated bunch of girls who will give absolutely anything in regattas and trainings, even when the weather isn’t so kind. At the Akaroa super 12 regatta we were victorious in the infamous Le Mans race. Unfortunately in our first two regattas we didn’t get the results we wanted, however our team showed true character and a fighting spirit to not let this get us down. Through months of early morning training and dedication from the crew, we have been able to achieve the results we wanted at our latest regatta. At the South Island championships in some tight photo finish racing between the girls schools we received a gold medal in the 200m and the 2000m as well as a bronze in the 500m. We are heading to Auckland to compete in the National dragon boat championships on the 27th of this month and hope to build on our recent success.

We would not have been able to achieve these results if it wasn’t for our amazing sweep Evan Roper and management crew of teachers Andrew Jones and Kirstin Field. They have always been there for us through the ups and downs of this season. We would like to thank them for the contribution to the team and also take the time to thank our sponsors who are making it possible for our crew to attend the nationals in Auckland. We will be paddling not only for our school but for our wonderful sponsors. Jess Davidson, Bridget Butterfield — Captains

Sport Cricket teams axed By Kyle Knowles IT HAS been confirmed the senior one-day club cricket competition will be two teams lighter next season. The Christchurch Metro Cricket Association last week confirmed Canterbury Country and the Canterbury under-20 side would not feature in 2015-16. The same decision was made a year ago in regards to the current season but the sides were given a one year reprieve but this time there is no going back. Canterbury Country Cricket Association chief executive Peter Devlin said he received a phone call from the CMCA last Friday afternoon informing him of the outcome. “We are very disappointed with the decision,” he said. He did not think there was any going back this time with only Canterbury Cricket stepping in last year to give them a 12-month reprieve which he did not think was possible this time round. Mr Devlin said his association would have to sit down and look at the decision in more depth and decide the next move for country cricket. Sefton club president and Canterbury Country selector Chris Rowe sent a survey of players from both

metro and country teams to the CMCA in support of keeping the 10 team competition but said it fell on deaf ears. Results of the survey showed respondents were overwhelmingly supportive of keeping the two axed teams in the competition. Eightyfive per cent said Country should be a part of the metro competition next season while 80 per cent wanted to keep the under-20 side. “Ideally we would like to see the status quo remain with the team (Country) playing in the one-day comp in Christchurch.” The survey also pointed out 90 per cent of respondents said they had not been consulted by the CMCA regarding the teams being removed. Mr Devlin said the survey showed what the players wanted and it looks as though the CMCA had taken no notice of the survey. The CMCA board’s reasons for dropping the sides were the competition should be for club sides only and not representative sides, to focus more on fostering community cricket in the city, playing a full round of Twenty20 fixtures, a desire for an eight-team competition and to have a an autonomy of the grades. CMCA chairman Ashley Taggart could not be reached for comment yesterday.
