Remember last year? Well this is bigger, much bigger. Not only is it mate against mate in the division one final, as Wanderers take on Waimea Old Boys. But this year the division two sides from both clubs will also play each other in the final, creating a massive day of club rugby for the region at Trafalgar Park this Saturday. The neighbouring clubs – Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers representing Wakefield and Brightwater, and Star & Garter Waimea Old

maintain your independence

Boys, Richmond and Appleby – are long time rivals but well-known as mates off the pitch. But neither side will be thinking about after-match drinks just yet. Last year Waimea Old Boys won their first title since 2002 by stunning Wanderers 51-22 in front of thousands of supporters. Wanderers have been starved of silverware since 1955, but go into the final as the top team, finishing in first place after the round robin stage and will be eager to put last

Locals in Pride of NZ finals Andrew Board Six Nelsonians have been named as finalists in the South Island section of the Pride of New Zealand awards. Kyle Paki Paki, Philip Walker, Adam Black and Gary Miller were selected as finalists in the bravery and heroism category for their rescue of the Fa’ave family in July last year. Ian Price will battle two others for the Environment award, and

Tama Easton and Mark Janssen make up two of the three finalists in the fundraiser of the year category. The awards have been running over the past two months, searching for the country’s most inspiring stories. In Nelson, more than 20 people were nominated, with six making it to the South Island finals in Christchurch on August 7. The South Island winners of each category will then go to

the national finals in Auckland in early September, meeting winners of the three regions in the North Island. Kyle Paki Paki says he was “absolutely humbled” when he found out he had made the finals. He says he will be taking his mum with him to the dinner. “Mum was the first person I opened up to after the accident, so she knows what I’ve been through and she was the first person I thought of.”

Quiz for new lungs The world championship quiz night is here. This Friday night at the Waimea Old Boys clubrooms in Richmond, Mike Corkill and his six children will be hoping to crown a new “world champion”. The tongue-in-cheek title of the quiz was penned by Mike’s kids, who are hoping it will go a long way to helping Mike reach his $100,000 fundraising goal for a new pair of lungs. So far the family has raised more than $20,000 for the operation, which he needs to have to live. The operation isn’t funded by the government because Mike has a small chance of kidney failure after the operation. But if it’s successful, then Mike will be able to live for years and

Dog care services around the Tasman district are booming, as the owners get busier and the dogs become hairier and more pampered. Twenty years ago there was just food (usually a can of Fido), vet's bills and registration, but today dog owners are also spending money dog groomers, walkers, trainers, whisperers, toys, clothing and expensive speciality health foods. The New Zealand Companion Animal Council estimates that the country's dog owners spend an average of $1047 each year on their dogs, and that amount doesn't surprise Richmond vet Brenda Halliwell. "Everyone is busier rushing around after children and working, and they still want the fun of having a pet," Brenda says. "So what's happening is that they are paying people to groom and walk their dogs so they don't feel guilty about not doing it themselves." Brenda, who works for Town and Country Vet, says there's also been an increase in dog breeds that don't shed hair and that's increased the demand for dog groomers. "There are lots of smaller, fluffier crosses out there now and they need grooming. We call them oodles- they're the poodle and bichon frise and shih tzu crosses." One of Richmond's newest dog groomers, Lauryce Colvill, who operates the Hole Diggers Dog Spa, says she started off her business part-time in March last year, but went full-time in November because she couldn't keep up with

the demand. Now she grooms up to 20 dogs a week during the peak season in summer, usually taking two hours and charging around $60 for each dog. Lauryce says she provides the full range of grooming, including washing, removing matted hair, clipping, nail and teeth care and even nail art. Although many of her clients have dog breeds that need regular trimming and coat care, like border collies and spaniels, the majority are dog owners who simply enjoy pampering their best friend. "They love their dogs and like to pamper them. Their dogs are just as important to them as people." Dog owner David Macdonald says he brings his border collie, Sophie, into Lauryce every three or four months for a groom and for a clipping in summer. "We love Sophie and we like to give her all the best care," David says. "And we can see she gets looked after here - you can see that Lauryce loves them too." And according to veteran animal control officer John Bergman, David is typical of Tasman's 6500 dogs owners who give the the vast majority of the district's 10,300 dogs the best of care. "We are spoiled in this area. People in Tasman look after their dogs really well. "We talk to dog control officers around the country and in a lot of places they won't go onto a property alone - it's too dangerous. We do see the bad ones here, but not many of them."

TDC to fix ‘poorly designed’ roads One of the Tasman district’s deadliest corners is being realigned while improving two black spots on Lower Queen St and controlling pedestrian crossings on Salisbury Rd are on a list of other minor roading improvements projects being investigated by the council. A left-hand corner on Kerr’s Hill in Golden Downs is being realigned after two fatal motorcycle crashes in the last four years. The council’s transportation manager Gary Clark, says a combination of misleading “horizontal and vertical” curves was identified as a factor in both fatalities and contractors Higgins are presently rea-

ligning the corner. Gary says the corner was poorly designed because it had “a curve and then a straight and then a tighter curve going downhill”. That sometimes resulted in motorcyclists going into the second corner too fast and crossing the centre line - both fatalities happened when motorcycles collided head-on with cars. The realignment is expected to be finished in about three weeks. The council has also commissioned designs for two intersections on Lower Queen St which carries 7000 cars a day and is the district’s second busiest road. There have been 10 crashes at the Swamp

The Nelson Tramping Club will be looking back to when its members wore hob-nailed boots and oil skins and carried heavy canvas packs when they celebrate the club’s 80th anniversary at St Arnaud next weekend. About 40 of the club’s past and present members will be attending the anniversary at the Alpine Lodge and Lake Rotoiti Community Hall on Saturday and Sunday. Club secretary Pat Holland says they will be holding a dinner at the Lodge on Saturday as well as slide shows and displays covering the club’s history. “Some of the slides and photos are really interesting,” Pat says. “They give a good insight into the club’s history. “The members were hardier back then because they had to be. The carried heavier packs everything is lightweight now - and when they went up to Mt Arthur they would have to walk up from the Graham Valley because the access road wasn’t there then. “The club also built a number of huts around the district. They built the original Rocks Hut but that’s been replaced now.” Pat says 40 trampers went on the club’s first official trip along the Dun Line and around Mt Jenkins in June 1934.

Property insights Vendors’ obligations to agents It is now a legal requirement that vendors disclose any serious faults and defects of the property to the agent at the time of signing the listing forms. For example, if your oven is not in good functioning order, or the swimming pool pump is faulty, then you must disclose this. If there is something wrong with your property and you have told the agent not to tell the buyers then the agent will have to disengage themselves from your listing agreement.



Members of the Nelson Tramping Club on Mt Peel in 1934.

The law states that agents must disclose all property information to a buyer and there is a serious conflict of interest if you ask them not to disclose, you are asking them to break the law.

Lydia Heyward Licensed Real Estate Agent (REAA 2008)

The law has teeth and there has been a recorded case where the judge ordered the vendors pay for substantial remedial work to rectify a serious flaw in a property that they had not disclosed.

Tama nominated for inspiring rides

Nelson mountainbiking enthusiast Tama Easton’s passion for long distance rides and a desire to help people suffering from arthritis has led to a nomination for the Pride of New Zealand’s Fundraiser of the Year Award. The former editor of Spoke mountainbiking magazine loves nothing more than getting on his bike, but last weekend Tama went for his first ride since April and could only manage a snail-paced two kilometres in 15 minutes. That’s a far cry from 2007 when he and a friend decided to ride around the Port Hills in Christchurch from sunrise to sunset on the longest day of the year. The Longest Day Ride is now a popular event for mountainbikers throughout the country but, sadly, Tama has missed three of them after being diagnosed with arthritis in 2009. The following year, Tama was well enough to ride again and decided that the 2010 edition of The Longest Day Ride would be a fundraiser for Arthritis New Zealand. The ride is now in its fourth year and has raised over $15,000 for the charity, which represents 535,000 sufferers of the 140 forms of arthritis. “I was crippled in 2009, so I missed it that year and said ‘When I’m better I’m going to

I was an absolute mess, it was hitting me really badly.” When he rode the Longest Day Ride around the Richmond Ranges with David Bonnet in 2010, Tama says it was a way of recapturing his identity because mountainbiking was such a big part of his life. “Not riding, for me, is like not eating – but I’m eyeing up the coming summer and thinking, ‘well maybe I’ll ride…’” Tama crashed out of the 2011 Longest Day Ride on a tricky section of the Wakamarina track, but rode around the route for the Tasman Great Taste Trail in 2012 and from Hanmer Springs to St Arnaud last year. But soon after that ride Tama

started going downhill and was later diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic inflammation of the spine and pelvis. His condition is being treated with the drug Humira, which binds to inflammatory cells and “takes them out of action”, but he still suffers from chronic pain and fatigue. Tama, who works as a web architect for Upshift Communications based in Richmond, says most people don’t realise that half of arthritis sufferers are under 65 – but now he’s got the conversation started. Whether he’s there to lead them or not, 100 people will be there in December on the Longest Day, sponsored to ride sunrise to sunset to ease others’ suffering.

Lighting up Nelson Light Nelson exceeded all of its organisers’ expectations this year, with 40,000 people visiting over the two nights. With Friday night’s event called off due to rain, most people waited until Sunday to attend Light Nelson, with 30,000 people coming through the

Queens Gardens and surrounds on the final night. Light Nelson featured 40 installations from local and national artists, and in its second year organisers were just hoping to top the crowd of 16,000 from last year, but ended up with much, much more than that.

New trust walks the talk

A local charity that ensures no student walks to school without shoes is taking big strides – and it’s thanks to the generosity of the community. Walk With Us, a charity set up early last year by eight Nelson businesswomen, helps fund school shoes, sport shoes and socks for local kids whose families are in need of some financial support. Walk With Us raised $15,000 at a charity auction at the end of October last year, which enabled them to start accepting application forms and get the ball rolling. President Carol Shirley says they were “really excited” with the response from the auction held at the Waimea Old Boys clubrooms, and the trust was now busy working with its six pilot schools to get shoes on the feet of students who are in need. “We had been told that some students were coming to school with bare feet or wet shoes. There is a big need out there and we keep being told it’s just getting harder and harder financially,” she says.

Walk With Us charitable trust president Carol Shirley with some of the shoes that are being given to local children who are in need of proper footwear for school. Photo: Phillip Rollo. “One of the ladies had been a teacher and she brought it home that the financial cost is quite significant for some parents, so we thought, why don’t we do shoes for children.” The way the process works is that schools will identify when there is a need and an application form will be sent to the charity. If approved, a voucher goes out to the parents, and they then go to sponsors Stirling Sport and Number One

Shoe Warehouse to pick out a pair of footwear. “It all goes through the schools, the teacher often sees the need and contacts the parent. We are quite specific about what they get, they are proper school shoes and proper sports shoes.” She says there has been a “good steady flow” of applicants coming through so far, and the charity would look at growing following its next charity auction later in the year.

Ideal for lifestyle block owners, home gardeners and/or commercial growers, this course will provide key knowledge and skills required for organic growing. Learn to build ecosystems, promote biodiversity and increase soil and plant health, instead of relying on artificial fertilisers and poisonous sprays. Topics covered include organic philosophies, certification, soil management, soil food webs, composting, companion planting, crop rotation, green manures, weed control, pest and disease management, plant knowledge and an introduction to permaculture.

Some prior knowledge of horticulture and growing plants is recommended although keen beginners are invited to apply. Although this programme has a horticultural bias, pastoral farmers wishing to get an understanding of what organic farming is all about will also find this course of value. On successful completion you will be awarded a Certificate in Organic Horticulture (Level 3). Networking between organic growing enthusiasts is an added bonus to joining this course. Note: Minimum numbers required for course to commence.

For more information or to apply, contact us now!

This knowledge can be applied not only to food crops, but to the cultivation of any plants – from suburban gardens to pastures, orchards, shelter belts and woodlots. In addition to attending tutorials and workshops or field trips, students will need to complete practical and theory assignments in their own time.

Your Voice

Queen St businesses: What a joy and delight it is for the residents of Richmond to know we have another estate agent opening in Queen St. So reassuring, so useful, so convenient .and soooooo needed. We don’t want the likes of cobblers, tailors, bakers, book retailers, butchers or confectioners cluttering up the main street. No, get the really essential people in, eh. Am I a cynic? You’re sooooooo right I am. Yours cynically, David Cook, Richmond.


Walk for Water: We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and kind donations, which has been making a huge difference to the charity goals. Words cannot express our thankfulness. Thank you very much for your extremely generous donation to the charity. It is greatly appreciated and we can’t thank you enough. You have touched our hearts and our gratitude is overflowing. The Waimea Weekly and Nelson Weekly team has made the last two ‘Water for Prosperity’ projects possible and we are very thankful and appreciate the support, as it is making a huge difference to the people of Torwood. Many Thanks, Gideon Stephen Matorino and David Alan Barnes.

Tried to get in, waited for ages. Wish it would stay for another night or two, would of liked to have seen it! Magan Oliver-Lowe. Too many peeps to see everything properly, and felt for the elderly. Very hard for them to navigate their way around. There were too many allowed on the bridge at once. Would have been better if was on longer instead of everyone cramming into three nights. But what we did see was awesome. Karen Ferguson. Very disappointing, think last years’ was way better. And gates not very organised-staff not knowing what was happening. Pauline Van Der Plas. Too many people. Hard for the little ones. Barely any room to move. I would have loved it if it was on longer so less people. Bonnie Geiger.

It was freakin’ awesomeness. Kids and adults loved it. Bridget Hobden.

Way too busy! Need to have it one way the whole way around. In one entrance, out the other. Also, it should be for the whole school holidays. Why just one weekend? Cherie Llewellin.

Didn’t even get through standing waiting for an hour. Amelia Barnsdale. We just got home from the madness! Think the number of people there made it hard to see everything. Verity Bartlett.

Lighting along the sides of the paths would be helpful... it was a little scary not knowing where the steps or edges of the paths were with so many people crushed together. Lee Punt.

Thoughts on Light Nelson: Beautiful! Kuraarangi Ropoama.

Kim Penketh


Went last night, had a great time! I enjoyed the flow, that you could go where you liked etc at your own pace... I think some of the paths could have been illuminated a bit better though, and maybe some people encouraging the crowd to move? Me and my toddler were trying to get a glimpse of something while standing behind two women gasbagging about their great-aunt. We waited ages and they wouldn’t move from the front row, so we went to look at something else. Sarah Kerby. So glad we didn’t go. Went last year and it was awesome. But having the first night cancelled, they should have put an extra night on to make up for it. Dave Wassa. Didn’t enjoy it as way to squashed in and not very good instructions. I’m sure the lights were cool, but it was madness. Anita Newport. Thought the venue is far too small for the crowd that attended tonight. I got sick of being abused for trying to get around with stroller after all it was listed as a family event. Cheryl Remnant. We got there at 5.30 so left before it got crazy, really enjoyed it! Daughter went splat a few times cos she couldn’t see steps, but she wasn’t bothered. Great effort by all those involved!! Elaine Lourens. It was an amazing festival! Thank you to all the artists, volunteers and organisers! Stephanie Williams.

The Message of the Bible Although written over a period of 1600 years, by 40 authors living in 10 different countries and using three different languages, there is a golden thread that links all the books of the Bible together.

Use MTA Good Guys created for their members is what sets MTA members apart from others in the same field and can mean a weight off your shoulders when it comes to finding a business you can trust. The MTA is governed by a board of directors who meet regularly and the MTA council comprises the board, branch presidents and committee chairs. Wendy Peterson has been recently elected as the MTA President for Nelson after being involved with the Nelson branch committee for around seven years. The Nelson executive is a small group of around six people who work together to organise training and opportunities for the membership in the region. Her role as president will also see her attend meetings with other MTA execu-

tives and represent Nelson nationally. “I guess it was the next step for me. I took it as a challenge for me and the chance for some personal development,” says Wendy. “I also enjoy getting a better insight into the workings of the MTA which only an executive position can offer.” Wendy and her husband have been a part of the MTA ever since they took over Wakefield Auto Services and believe in the benefits of the organisation for them as owners as well as the public. Wendy can also act as your first port of call for any inquiries or if you would like to request the MTA’s mediation service. For more information on the MTA visit the website at www. mta.org.nz, contact Wendy on 03 541 8121 or email admin@wasl. co.nz.

Harvey World Travel

Anisy’sTasman Funeral Home

What sets your business apart from others in your field? Holidays should be a fun experience, so we make sure that for our customers, the fun starts when they are working with us to put together their holiday and doesn’t finish until they step off the plane at home.

Why use a funeral director? If you had someone close to you pass away today would you know what to do? Whether you have a full funeral or a direct cremation a funeral director knows all the different things that have to be done, has the appropriate knowledge, resources and equipment and can complete all the complicated paperwork that is involved.

What is the most satisfying part of the job? Hearing from customers that the holiday/travel plans we worked on together went perfectly as planned, and that the recommendations we made were just what they wanted. At Harvey World of Travel we specialise in creating the perfect holiday and hearing that people have had a great time is what we love to hear. What benefits do customers receive when they come to you? Customers receive the combined experience of our entire travel agency. There are three of us here, all with different travel experiences and areas of expertise. Regardless of who the customer might be dealing with, all three of us might provide advice on a destination or particular product and we make the whole process fun and enjoyable.

What’s a funeral director’s role? They help arrange and collate all the information provided by the family, ascertain family wishes, liaise with ministers, celebrants, cemetery, crematorium and council staff, arrange pallbearers, headstones, complete all the official forms, register the death and importantly help relieve family stress so your family can start the grieving process. Why Anisys? We are small enough to offer you personalised service yet big enough to provide for all the alternatives from full funerals to cremations to natural burials. You get a cost competitive company providing handcrafted caskets made by Laurie himself. We will talk you through all the steps that need to be taken care of, take your worries away, answer your questions and listen to what you want.

Prestige Joinery

What benefits do people get from coming to you instead of other business’s in your field? They’re dealing with a small business so they’re going to get a one on one service with myself. Customers can trust they’re going to get the best standard of workmanship because they are talking to the owner and operator on every job.

How can joinery be used to create a beautiful and practical home? Quality and aesthetically pleasing joinery can set your home apart from the rest and is an area of highly specialised craftsmanship. It’s important to take the time to carefully select a look that will not only look great in your home but suit your lifestyle and requirements. Instead of a catalogue kitchen, Prestige Joinery can offer computer design systems and their own skills to design you a unique kitchen or vanity.

What services can you provide people with? We’ve got lots of facets to our business such as septic tank/waterblasting/waste removal which includes everything from removing waste water, unblocking drains and camera work. We also do sand blasting and industrial painting. We’re fully mobile so we can go anywhere and everywhere, we can do big jobs requiring abseiling or minor domestic work. What do you pride yourselves on? A lot of people just do sand blasting but we’re a one stop shop. There’s nothing that we can’t do. We’re really good at solving problems for people and we can adapt and make things happen for the customer.

Why should customers use your business instead of others in the same field? I have been crafting quality kitchens, vanities and customer furniture in Nelson for around 30 years and I have many satisfied and repeat customers who have contributed to Prestige Joinery’s good reputation. We’re also a small business so you’ll be dealing with me the entire time from design to installation. What projects can Prestige Joinery help with? They offer a huge range of joinery from full kitchen fit outs, laundry and bathroom joinery and wardrobe and cupboard design to smaller jobs like replacing new cupboard fronts or bench tops.

Bowling Club achieves Bowls NZ Gold status Wakefield Bowling Club has recently had its two-yearly Bowls NZ “club check” assessment by community development officer Loraine McLeod and has achieved the gold standard, scoring 104 points from a maximum 105. “This award recognises the emphasis your club puts on maintaining the high standard

set,” says Loraine. “I commend you for this and also acknowledge the leaders in the club for your drive and dedication.” Loraine will also be putting Wakefield forward for the Bowls NZ Club of the Year award, which is a significant achievement for the small country club and its proud members.

News from Wakefield School

Fairy Tales Matai Tahi students at Wakefield School are enjoying looking at a range of fairy tales in preparation for their production next term. So they were given a challenge to make a raft or boat for their gingerbread man, who was being chased and had to get across the river to the other side. The children’s crafts were tested in the school swimming pool.

Tasman District Library Book Quiz By Arin and Sarah (Year 5) Recently, a team of four students from Wakefield School took part in the Tasman District Library book quiz. The team of four [Sarah, Arin, Blake and Gian] carefully studied three books, Project Huia, Dunger

and Anzac Day. The team called themselves the Wakefield Hunters. They were all dressed in camo gear and you could hardly recognize them. There were 10 other teams participating from Lake Rotoiti School to Richmond School. The first round of questions was on the book Dunger and was brainstretchingly hard. The next two rounds were equally as hard. The last round was on general knowledge of popular books. When the quiz was over, everyone sat there holding their breath, waiting for the name of the winning team to be called. Wakefield was surprised and delighted to hear that they had won for the second year in a row.

Art expo the ‘finest yet’ The third annual Art Expo Nelson brought some of the best artisans out into one space, and the public responded by turning out in their thousands. Project manager Nic Foster says the quality of the work continues to reach new highs, and local attendee Maxine McNabb, agrees. “The talent has risen every year.” From etchings to oils, and sculpture to fabrics, the different mediums made for an eclectic col-

lection of the stunning talents. Contributor Jeff Connell says he tries to portray creativity when working on a new piece. “[I’m] always looking at light and landscape to have convincing spaces… a painting you can look into and, in your mind’s eye, move around inside it.” And as part of her creative process, Nelson artist Ruth Vaega says she spent hours observing a robin for one of her etchings.

your questions

By Susan Gill, Church on the Hill. Most of us like a comfortable life, don’t we? We’ve worked hard. We deserve our physical comforts. Our preference for comfort often extends beyond the material to relationships and to emotional ease. We don’t like to be challenged. We surround ourselves with people who make us feel good. We don’t like to confront someone if they have upset us. Anything for a quiet life right? Really? Is a quiet life the best we can hope for? Looking back, the places where I’ve been pushed, stretched, challenged, have brought the richest rewards. Those

Q: My son’s birthday party is coming up

and it is going to be expensive. I’m also a little stressed because my son has been invited to other kid’s birthdays and buying those gifts will also be a strain. Do you have you any suggestions? A: Keeping up with what you think everyone else expects can take the fun out of the parties for parents. Release yourself from huge expectations and get back to celebrating the birthday. Try these suggestions: Work out how much you can afford and stick to it. Get your older child involved in planning their birthday with the budget you have set, letting them make decisions about what they want and what they can do without. DIY as much as possible: cake, food, games and cheap entertainment (eg.DVD hire) Ask parents not to bring a present for your child, but instead bring a gold coin OR set a price limit on gifts. Other parents will thank you and can do the same for their child. Forgo the elaborate goodie bags- a piece of cake wrapped in a serviette is a nice treat to take home. Birthday parties are not a competitive event; don’t buy into the idea of ‘keeping up with the Joneses’. Truth be told the ‘Joneses’ probably can’t afford everything either. Your different approach to parties may well start a new trend with the other parents!

Many local art enthusiasts found that a valuable highlight of the expo has been the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the creators of the work, to find out more about the story behind each piece. Nic Foster, project manager of the expo, says he is “stoked” with how the weekend unfolded, with 6200 people through the door and art sales up 15 per cent on last year.

places of growth and development. Sometimes that involved a lot of kicking and struggling on my part as I was dragged reluctantly from the comfortable now into uncomfortable change. Brené Brown has written a book called Daring Greatly. It’s a great book. What has stuck with me most is the idea of normalising discomfort. Recently I heard that 57% of an average young person’s communication is via technology. This is not all bad. It’s wonderful to be able to Skype, facebook, twitter rellies and friends overseas. It’s a quick way of keeping up with what’s happening. It’s also an easy way

to avoid the difficult conversations, to avoid truth-telling and truth-receiving. Face to face, honest communication, is best, even if sometimes uncomfortable. Someone said they didn’t think they’d invite Jesus to dinner. You never know what he’d say or do. Jesus is very blunt to those who needed some straight talk; the bullies, the self-righteous, the smart alec know-it-alls. Jesus has no idea what it is to be PC. Jesus thrives on bringing discomfort. (Jesus is always very kind to the vulnerable; to those in trouble though.) I’m slowly learning that discomfort is a good thing. It alerts us to the growing edge; to the places of challenge and potential. Wanna grow? Easy. Don’t run from discomfort. Embrace it.

Some of the athletes who will represent Nelson and New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games this month. They are, from left; 1500m runner Julian Matthews, rugby sevens player Bryce Heem, lawn bowlers Shannon and Amy Mcilory and hockey player Anita Punt.

Commonwealth Games draw closer A record contingent of Nelson athletes will represent New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games, and the countdown to Glasgow is nearly up, with the event just over a week away. Cyclist George Bennett has already been ruled out after sustaining an injury in a crash last month, but ten others from Nelson will be wearing the silver fern in Glasgow, and some of those for the first time. The Nelson contingent is; Anita Punt (hockey), Julian Matthews (athletics) Amy Mcilory (lawn bowls), Shannon Mcilroy (lawn bowls), Jo Edwards (lawn bowls), Val Smith (lawn bowls) Bryce Heem (rugby sevens), Shannon Francois (netball), Mark Brewer (judo) and Jack Bauer (cycling).

1500m runner Julian Matthews, a former Nelson College student, will be one of those competing at the Commonwealth Games for the first time. Speaking via email from the Athletics NZ athlete’s base in Cardiff, Julian says reality has finally sunk in that he will be competing at the Games. “It’s taken a while to sink in, but it has now – I arrived at the Athletics NZ athlete’s base here in Cardiff a couple of days ago and being around all the other team members has made it more of a reality for me. I’m really looking forward to getting my uniform and being able to try on that black singlet, while trying to keep the pressure of the event at bay for a bit longer, of course,” he says. Julian will be targeting a place

Phillip Rollo Reporter


in the 1500m final and will “see what happens” from there. “The 1500 is such an exciting race, it really comes down to the day and tactics, so you never know what might happen.” Coming from a “very sport-orientated” family, Julian has always dreamed of someday representing New Zealand since picking up athletics as a 13 year old. “To be able to compete at the Commonwealth Games is such an honour – I am so excited to be able to represent my country at an international event, and especially one that is close to so many Kiwis’ hearts.”

Nelson’s best hopes of a gold medal, outside of the rugby sevens team, lie with veteran bowlers Jo and Val. Jo won a gold medal in the pairs in 2002, while Val finished second in the singles in 2010. The duo, who are good mates off the green, are teaming up in the pairs this year and have a proven track record at international events. The next best prospect is Anita and the women’s Black Sticks hockey team. Anita, who is one of the most experienced players in the team with 155 caps, has been scoring for fun in recent internationals and was part of the squad which won a silver medal in Dehli. Amy and Shannon have the unique story of being husband

and wife, as well as members of the New Zealand lawn bowls team. When she was named in the squad to attend her first Commonwealth Games, Amy said she just wanted to make her family proud, and would be thinking of her late uncle and poppa when competing. “My biggest thing is definitely doing this for my family, and my mum and dad are coming over to watch.” An eleventh Nelson athlete will attend in the games, but he won’t be wearing a silver fern. Former Tasman Makos number eight Mark Bright, now 35 years old, has gained selection in the England rugby sevens team after impressing last month. The 2014 Commonwealth Games begin on July 23.

Waimea Old Boys RFC

Waimea Old Boys Rugby

It’s finals weekend Can Waimea win two in a row?

Waimea Old Boys division two back Michael Bates celebrates scoring in Saturday’s semi-final win over Collingwood. Photo: Chris Symes/Shuttersport.

Bs aim to go one better Super Liquor Waimea Old Boys will be chasing their first Car Company division two title since 2009 when they take on Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers at Trafalgar Park this Saturday. Just three of the starting line-up – Michael Bates, Tim Fenson and Paul Burt – were part of that squad, but co-coach Wayne Bateman believes his young side have what it takes to bring the silverware back to the club after they knocked off Collingwood on Saturday. “We’re quite confident. Just like after Saturday’s game we didn’t get overawed. The boys know they’ve got a job to do this Saturday,” he says.”

Waimea Old Boys were in the final last year, but lost by just one point to champions Murchison. But with a lot of new faces, it’s hard to know whether Waimea Old Boys will be better from that experience or not. Wanderers head into the game unbeaten, and got the better of Waimea Old Boys 18-14 earlier in the season so, as expected, Wayne says his side will be underdogs. “It was quite early in the season and we had a shocker. But to me they go in as favourites because they’re unbeaten this season since the first round.” The match kicks off at Trafalgar Park at 1pm.

Star & Garter Waimea Old Boys captain Ben Coman says his side is excited to be back in the Car Company division one final, while Wanderers captain Jesse Pitman is hoping his team can right the wrongs of last year. Wanderers are justifiably the top team heading into the decider. They’ve beaten Waimea Old Boys twice already this season and finished the round robin in first place. But Waimea Old Boys come into the game on the back of some impressive form. They’ve won nine games in a row, including a win over Tasman Trophy champions Waitohi -a feat no other team managed in 2014. “Wanderers have set

Phillip Rollo Reporter


the bar pretty high this season, but we are excited about the occasion and we’re probably not putting too much weight or bearing on the fact that we won last year. We respect them as a side and we respect what they’ve done this year.” Last year, Waimea Old Boys were led by fullback James Lowe, who often ignited their exciting back line. But this year it’s a hulking forward pack which drives the team around the field. “We’ve lost some of our key Super Rugby players, but it’s probably made us work a lot harder for each other. We

know that without them we’ve had to dig deep to win games and that puts us in pretty good stead.” Like Waimea Old Boys, Wanderers have big ball-running forwards and some exciting backs, and captain Jesse Pitman says his team is better from the experience of losing 51-22 in the final last year. “We talked last year about the three year plan but we just weren’t ready. For a few of us it was our first final and we got a bit overawed by the occasion,” he says. “But we’ve learnt so much in the last year and we’re looking forward to putting that into practice come finals time.” The division one final kicks off at 3pm at Trafalgar Park.

Women chase 10s crown If Waimea Old Boys women beat Marist this weekend it’ll be six years in a row that they’ve finished the season as champions. 2014 saw the introduction of rugby tens instead of the 15-a-side format which Waimea had been so dominant in over the past five years, and with just one loss to their name heading into the final weekend of matches, Waimea are the frontrunners to win the title again. The final round of rugby tens will be played at Neale Park, starting with Waimea Old Boys ver-

sus Stoke, and Riwaka versus Marist at 12noon. It will then be followed by the Waimea Old Boys versus Marist final at 1pm, and another game between Riwaka and Stoke. If Waimea can win both their games, the title is theirs. In fact, Marist would have to beat them by a considerable margin to have any hope of pinching first place. “We’ve beaten them twice and they’ve beaten us once,” says Waimea coach Steve Curtis. “There is no final but the result of this game will decide the title.”

Football club Waimea wins South Island junior title to celebrate Carol Cook 50 years Netball Reporter


Richmond’s largest sports club is preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary next month. Richmond Athletic Football Club was founded when two clubs merged and, while its origins are a little hazy, what is known is the year club stalwart Roy Oddy was voted in as the club’s first president – 1964. Current president, Stu Reid, is leading the organising efforts of the 50th celebrations and says it will honour its history as a laid-back, family-friendly club that has fostered the love of the game for thousands of locals. “Many of us grew up around the clubrooms at Jubilee Park, and it’s always been a club that has accepted and involved players and supporters of all ages and abilities.” The 50th anniversary will be held on the weekend of August 29 and 30. On Friday night there will be a meet and greet at the clubrooms on Jubilee Park, before a past verses present game on Saturday and a celebration dinner at Club Waimea later that night. Anyone interested in attending any of the events – not just former or current club members – can contact Stu via email at president@ richmondathletic.co.nz or phone him on 027 471 4619.

Waimea College 10A made every post a winning one when they competed at the South Island Secondary Schools Junior Tournament held in Christchurch during the week. Waimea swept all before them as they amassed 293 goals for and only 155 against in eight games. That equates to an impressive average of 36 goals for and a mere 19 against. As the tournament got down to the “nitty gritty”, the op-

position became stronger. Waimea defeated St Margaret’s 26-22 in the quarter-final in order to meet Villa Maria in the semi-final. It was a very tight start, going goal for goal. The formidable defensive duo of Louise Walker and Lauryn Davenhill toiled tirelessly to break the rhythm of Villa’s shooters. At the other end of the court Amiee Book was standing up against the pressure to calmly convert 92% of her shots, which paved the way to a 28-24 win and a berth in the final. The final was against Southland Girls and had intensity
