Spectacular crash ‘a freak accident’ As Bayden Sprozen did a somersault in his power boat at Lake Rotoiti on Saturday he had one thought: “I can save this”. He couldn’t. But it at least explains his hand stretched out and ready to meet the water in the photo of his spectacular crash with club mate Christine Hanning. Bayden was racing behind Christine at the Power Boat Champs over the weekend when her boat suddenly stopped when going around a corner. He tried to turn

left, but only managed to hit the front of her boat and was sent into an aerial somersault. “I used to ride motorbikes professionally,” says Bayden. “And one of the phases as you’re about to crash is ‘don’t worry, I can save this’. And that’s what it looks like, I put my hand out to try and flip it back over.” He says he has some sore hips and knees but the damage was minimal. “The boat is made of carbon fibre and is only 2mm thick, and all that happened was a small

crease in the carbon on one corner. We managed to keep racing in the regatta by duct taping it up after each race just to keep the water out.” Christine, who, like Bayden, races out of the Manawatu Club, was sent to hospital but only suffered muscular damage. She says the crash was a shock. “It’s a freak accident, we’ve never had an accident like that before. For more on the Power Boat Champs at Lake Rotoiti, turn to page 27.

Spooner’s cycle tunnel all go

The next section of the Tasman Great Taste Trail from Wakefield through the Spooner’s Tunnel to Kohatu looks likely to be completed this financial year with the Nelson-Tasman Cycle Trails Trust expected to announce a new funding deal next week. The Tasman District Council has already included $300,000 in its 2014-2015 budget to construct the next section of the popular cycling trail but that will only be available

if matching funds are secured from either Government or a third party. Last Thursday, the prospect of completing the section from Wakefield to Kohatu improved significantly when council agreed to accept “cash and in-kind” payments from the trust as matching funds. Although trust chairwoman Gillian Wratt would not reveal details of the matching funds and in-kind payments, she did say

simon@waimeaweekly.co.nz that “we are optimistic we will secure the equivalent of $300,000 to complete the stage”. Gillian expects the funding would come through in time to complete the stage in

this financial year. “We still have to finalise some details but we anticipate that, by the end of next week, we will be in a position to make an announcement on the funding,” Gillian says. Gillian says she is delighted council agreed to the funding proposal which would not be possible without “great support from

“Absolutely, we have friends who have been flooded three times, so it needs to be fixed.”

“It is a lot of money but we definitely need to do something.”

“Being a local business owner who has been flooded, I think it is a good idea. We’ve been flooded two to three times over the past couple of years, the last time we had six inches of water throughout the shop.”

‘Distressed dog’ New funding deal for cycle trail was just a toy FROM PAGE 1

Animal welfare officers were called out last week after someone reported there was a distressed dog, panting and overheating inside a car parked on a Richmond street. When animal control officer, Linda Bergman, arrived at the scene she

found that the distressed dog was, in fact, a ceramic bobble-head fake dog placed inside the rear window of the car. Linda spoke to the two elderly occupants of the car who assured her the dog was well-cared for and had travelled with them for years.

Head on crash on Richmond Deviation Traffic on State Highway 6 along the Richmond Deviation was reduced to one northbound lane on Tuesday afternoon after a collision between a car and a truck at about 1.30pm. The accident was attended by police,

fire brigade and a St John ambulance. St John say the female driver of the car was taken to Nelson Hospital with minor to moderate injuries. The truck driver was uninjured.

community groups, landowners and businesses.” Although councillors at last Thursday’s engineering and planning committee meeting were not given the details of the funding deal, they agreed to allow the trust to provide “a combination of cash and in-kind payments that will meet council’s requirements of matching funds”. A report to councillors stated that “the trust is in a good position to negotiate with suppliers and secure in-kind works” and that “this is not something the council is typically able to achieve”. It suggested that in-kind work could be completed by a private landowner or contractor who could provide their services and materials to construct parts of the trail.

Jo Leyland, a trustee of the Nelson Tasman Cycle Trails Trust,outside the Spooner’s Tunnel.

Councillor Judene Edgar says the in-kind payments arrangement had already been successfully used to help fund community facilities around the district and could be applied to the cycle trail. “The trust is ready to go and all they need is approval to get the deal signed-off,” she told the meeting. Mayor Richard Kempthorne,

who is a keen mountainbiker, says “I’m really supportive” of accepting in-kind payments for the cycle trail. “The reality is that it is equivalent to real funding,” he says. However, Richard says that any in-kind payments would need to be assessed by council engineers to determine a mutually agreed value that was equivalent to contract rates.

Richmond dog Dusty FEATURE LISTINGS is ‘world’s best fielder’ Andrew Board

“He should be in the Black Caps”. It’s a phase Richmond man John Glazier has heard often from amazed on-lookers as his dog Dusty joins in on their family cricket games. John is a mad cricket fan and often takes a few kids to the Maitai Valley or Waimea Intermediate to play cricket. Dusty is there too and fields every single ball and returns it to the bowler. “Every time he does it,” says John. “He doesn’t get in the way of the ball when it’s being bowled, only after it’s been hit and he’ll chase it and bring it back to the bowler. We don’t need fielders or a wicket keeper. Just a batter and bowler.” The antics often catch the eye of passers-by and John says they often play in front of a crowd. “Especially at the Maitai. People will stop and watch him go, it’s incredible really.” Dusty is five years old and was adopted by John from the Nelson SPCA. He was found wondering the streets. John says basic training took years but cricket training was much easier. “When Seth was old enough I started to teach him a bit of cricket and Dusty would intervene. As we played more and

But it started off that we could never get the ball off him so we’d put him inside so that we could carry on. “He soon learnt that if he didn’t take the ball he could play and it went from there. It just developed really quickly.” Rules have also been added to incorporate Dusty. If Dusty catches the ball in his mouth after one bounce you’re out, says John. “We’ve gone through 200 tennis balls and probably 40 cricket balls, but we’ve finally found a plastic cricket ball that he can’t chew and that works a treat.” John says the mere mention of cricket sends Dusty into a fren-

zy of excitement and he’s been in trouble in the past for jumping in on other people’s games. “He thinks that every cricket game is there for him, but it’s never a good look when he jumps out the car at Victory Square and there’s a game on.” John, who works at Waimea College and who also coaches a cricket team, says Dusty is a regular at training sessions. “In the nets, if a ball gets hit he’ll tear off after it and bring it back. He’s a handy coaching tool.” John says Dusty has to be the world’s best fielder because he just keeps going. “He’ll go for hours and hours. He never gets sick of it.”

Grey Power NZ banishes Male

Grey Power’s national federation has given the strongest possible sanction to former Nelson president Neville Male, issuing him with a legal notice to stop using its name or logo. Neville has protested the involvement of the national federation in the affairs of the local organisation but national president Terry King says the national board was asked to get involved and as the governing body it has every right to do so. He says the management committee, led by Kevin Gardener, is the local authority and that Neville is way out of line by still claiming to be president of the group. The stance of the national body seems to give local Grey Power members some surety around which faction has control of the group, but the problems appear to be far from over. Last week two of the organisation’s computers were stolen from its Stoke office. Police are investigating the theft. That comes less than a week after supporters of Neville Male

Andrew Board Editor


tried to force their way into the Grey Power office. Police were called but the office is open again under the control of the management committee. National president Terry King spoke to Waimea Weekly and said “enough is enough”. He says the federation board “upholds the action of the Grey Power Nelson Management Committee, chaired by Mr [Kevin] Gardener”. He said the annual general meeting called by the management committee for April 1 is the place where the membership will decide who should lead the organisation in the future. Not the “special general meeting” called by Neville this Friday. “In calling another ‘Special General Meeting’ Mr Male is being very unhelpful,” says Terry. The comments follow a national board meeting last week to

discuss the issues with Nelson Grey Power and Terry says it was decided to send the strongest possible message that Neville Male no longer has any association with Grey Power. A letter from solicitors Bell Gully was then sent to Neville telling him to “cease and desist from claiming any affiliation to Grey Power, using the Grey Power name or its intellectual property”. Terry says Neville has got the wrong end of the stick. “The board’s position in relation to any issue within the 70 Grey Power Associations around the country is that it will not initiate a response to an issue but prefers to see local issues dealt with locally. [But] an official request for assistance was received from the Nelson committee so we got involved and quite rightly so.” Acting president of Grey Power Nelson, Kevin Gardener, didn’t want to comment to the Weekly but did say the AGM on April 1 will be the place where members can have their say.

National Children’s Day was celebrated with interactive activities, games and lots of fun in the sun at Rabbit Island last Sunday. The free event supported by the Tasman District Council, was all about spending quality time with the kids and showing them how special they are. Popular children’s entertainer, Kath Bee wowed the crowd of wee tots who giggled, wiggled and jiggled to her songs and actions. There was plenty of things on offer for older kids too with bouncy castle, balloon twisting, bike riding challenges, biscuit decorating, face painting and various sports set up around the park.

Millions to be spent on flood protection

Queen St looks likely to get an extensive $8.9 million makeover, both under and above ground, timed to start in 2016-2017 as part of a wider project aimed at reducing the flood risk around Richmond. Richmond central business district was inundated by big floods in December 2011 and April 2013 and as a result the Tasman District Council launched a study to identify the causes of flooding. The study has just been completed and showed the best option

for reducing the risk of flooding in the town’s centre is to reshape Queen St and upgrade its ageing stormwater system. “The pipes are broken in Queen St and therefore they need to be dug up and replaced - there’s no way around that,” programme delivery manager Russell McGuigan told councillors at an engineering and planning committee meeting in Richmond last Thursday. “We also have to change the profile of the road because presently it’s higher than the entranceways

NEWS in brief

Simon Bloomberg

“we can get the floodwaters from the hills to the sea and not how it will look on top”. “How Queen St is reinstated is subject to consultation after the engineering options have been confirmed.” The town centre project is timed to start in 2016-2017. Russell also presented a number of options for reducing the risk of flooding around Richmond including improving the stormwater systems in Oxford St ($2.75million), Poutama St ($1.9million), Beach Rd ($700,000), Washbourn

of buildings that front the street which is why shops got flooded in December 2011 and April 2013.” Russell says the water and wastewater pipes under Queen St also needed replacing and that it made sense to do that when they dug up the road. Although it was also a good opportunity to improve the street’s design, Russell says the priority will be ensuring

Dr ($725,000) and at the Queen St and Salisbury Rd intersection ($400,000) and enlarging the Jimmy Lee Creek detention dam to absorb floodwaters. Russell says council will now have to “select the best value options within available funding.” Mayor Richard Kempthorne says the study signified the start of a “key project” for Richmond and the next step was for council to consider the options. However, he says Queen St is top priority and will the immediate focus.

NO PLANS FOR LAND: There are no immediate plans to develop vacant land located on the corner of Oxford St and Wensley Rd in Richmond. Contractors recently removed a bund on the site adjacent to the Nelson-Tasman Civil Defence building prompting speculation that the site was about to be developed. However, owners of the vacant site, Fawdan Subdivision Ltd, say there are no immediate plans for land. NEW FOOTPATH: Tasman District Council is planning a new footpath to run from Sunrise Valley Rd to Upper Moutere School as part of a redesign of the Sunrise Valley-Moutere Highway intersection near Upper Moutere. The new path will mean that pedestrians won’t have to walk along the shoulder of the highway or cross the road to access the footpath on the northern side of the highway and then cross again to reach the school. FREE MONEY SEMINAR: Free financial ‘Money Matters’ seminars will be held at Richmond Library during March. The library is running the free financial seminars alongside a ‘Money Matters’ display. A range of skilled speakers will cover a variety of financial topics from setting financial goals to retirement planning. The lunchtime sessions are open to everyone with no bookings required. Seminar topics include set your goals and make a budget to meet them, think about your financial planning, shrink your high interest debt, grow your savings, Kiwisaver and Retirement Planning.

Pupils ditch the cars and walk to school Henley School pupils, parents and teachers left their cars in the garage last Wednesday and walked to school as part of a health initiative aimed at promoting exercise and good nutrition. About 475 of the school’s 500 pupils and many of their parents and most of the teachers, including principal John Armstrong who walked to school from Tahunanui, took part in Walking Wednesday. When they arrived at school they were rewarded with a free apple from Raeward Fresh, spot prizes from the Tasman District Council and a greeting from the Life Education Trust’s mascot Harold the Giraffe. “It’s a good way to encourage the children to walk to school,” John says. “It’s got obvious health benefits and it also reduces the congestion we have around the gates with parents driving their children to school. “We won’t be doing this as a regular thing but we’d like our kids to walk to school as often as possible, or even get to school on bikes or scooters. About 70 per cent of our children walk to school already and we want more to join them.” John says Walking Wednesday was an initiative from the school’s health curriculum leader Natalie Doty. It was supported by the Life Education Trust, Raeward Fresh and the TDC.

Anzac Day breakfast for Brightwater Anzac Day commemorations at Brightwater will be a bigger occasion this year, with the town’s community association organising a breakfast to be held after the service at the Brightwater War Memorial Gates on Lord Rutherford Rd. Association member and Brightwater School principal, Gerald Baldwin, says the association wanted to do something special to commemorate the centenary of the start of World War I. The association decided a breakfast in the Brightwater Memorial Hall following the service would add another dimension to the commemorations and they now want people to contact the association if they are interested in attending. “We thought it would be a good idea and better

Just Metal, Tuesday, February 24: Heavy metal concert, Just Metal, was a huge success and organiser Danny Freilich says he will definitely be looking to make it a regular entertainment activity for young people. The event, held at the Theatre Royal, gave young bands the chance to gain some professional live performance experience alongside the established band, Legacy of Disorder. Danny says they sold around 200 tickets to the concert where seven young bands performed. Concert goers were also thrilled with the event. Danny has booked the theatre again for November. Fight 4 Victory, Tuesday, February 24: General admission tickets for the Fight 4 Victory are selling well, says organiser Paul Hampton. Tickets for the charity boxing event at Saxton Stadium on April 4, went on sale last Monday and already in the first week Paul says more than 200 have been sold. “It’s been a solid start. Interest is really high so we hope that it will be a sell out.” Around 1300 general admission tickets are on sale for the event, to go with the corporate tables that are almost sold out. Tickets are $35 each and can be bought at the Theatre Royal, Richmond Mall, Nelson i-Site and online at www.ticketdirect.co.nz.

A little fishy? Many of you are aware of the recently published ‘Fish oil supplements in NZ’ study, which brought into question the stated amount per capsule and the oxidation (essentially degradation) of omega 3 per capsule. Fish oils (omega 3) are one of the most commonly used health supplements today and can be taken for a multitude of reasons, some of which include; reduction in heart disease, inflammation, improvement in brain function and skin moisture, to name a few. Vitaco, who produce Nutralife brand fish oils, have stringent, independently, Medsafe certified testing procedures and policies to ensure label claims on EPA/DHA content and long-term stability of their fish oils meet these and other standards. This provides a consistent quality standard and efficacious dose that you can trust and is a reason why we are happy to stock their range of products.

Nelsonians to gather in Gallipoli Andrew Board Three Nelson men died on April 25, 1915, the first day of the battle of Gallipoli and exactly 100 years on, around 26 Nelsonians will be standing on the same beach and cliffs where the soldiers died, and one of them is hoping they’ll be able to do it together. Cathy Knight won a double ticket to the centenary commemorations at Gallipoli, along with 13 other people from Nelson. She says she has no idea who the other people are, and would like to get together with them before the big trip and hopefully catch up over there. “I just thought it would be nice if we could meet each other first. Twenty-six is such a small number, really, so it could be good to meet up over there.” Cathy is hoping to arrange a meeting in Nelson before the trip and perhaps one over there for what she describes as a “huge honour”.

“The chances of going were just so remote. I entered the ballot knowing that the chances were slim and got an email after the first ballot saying we hadn’t been successful, and I just completely forgot all about it. But I must have ticked a list saying that we’d go on a waiting list and in November I got an email out of the blue saying I’d been successful in the wait list. I had to read it several times.” Now that the feelings of shock have subsided, Cathy says the feelings of honour have replaced them. “It feels quite special just thinking about it. So the fact that we’re going to be on the spot where they landed on the beach, and we’re going to walk up the cliff where so many men died, it’s just going to be overwhelming.

Your Voice Trafalgar Centre: The Trafalgar Centre just sits there, when something should be happening if it is to open again in 2016. I see all the fabulous shows coming to New Zealand and Nelson City rate payers haven't got a show (literally). Surely, in three years we could have built a new entertainment centre. The land is there, if the existing building is going to cost too much why not build a new one? Last week in the Weekly, Brenda Kenny wrote "build a new one", I agree, Nelson ratepayers deserve it, we've waited long enough. Maria Clinton.

don't go along these days as there was much to be learnt. Brenda Kenny. Yep, went to Max's Bush. Hiked for hours, was beautiful. Stopped along a river bed. Learned how to make a whole bunch of cool stuff. We put bananas into tin foil, placed chocolate down the centre of the banana wrapped them loosely, and threw them on the open camp fire oh nom nom! Our girl guide leaders were awesome. Sharon May Patterson.

Local business comes to the party

Forget the movie!

The Reapers Owen River Party almost became unplugged when their generator hire fell through last week. Luckily, one local business came to the party. The annual Reapers Party at Owen River has taken on a true community feel this year, with fundraising going towards Child Cancer Research. So when the hire of a generator fell through, the Reapers were in serious need of help. Without a generator the party wouldn’t have got started. Fortunately, Brendon [Arnie] Ahnfeldt, owner of Current Generation on Pascoe St, stepped in and has generously donated one of his industrial

sized generators for the event. “It will be able to power all the concert equipment, all the sound equipment, and the PA,” he says. Brendon says the reason he is supplying the generator at no cost is due to the fact the event is raising money for Child Cancer Research. He has no affiliation with the club. Brendon usually hires the 1500 rpm diesel generators out, or sells them. The Owen River Party, held this weekend, is a family friendly camping event featuring music performed by Nelson band A Month öf Sundays. The party will also host a number of raffles, games and competitions with a biking theme.

Healthcare that is excellent, accessible and caring is the philosophy and practice of Washbourn Medical Centre and its doctors, Lucia Mitchell and Dr Janine Bailey. The premises have been refurbished recently and the practice has gained accreditation from the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners – a warrant of fitness for patient well-being and safety. Teamwork and communication are important at the centre and the result is friendly, experienced people, confident in their roles. One of the important services offered by Washbourn Medical Centre is immunisation. Immunisation is an important way of preventing various unpleasant diseases. The Ministry of Health recommends the pneumococcal vaccine for those with chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and those over 65, to help prevent pneumonia. This vaccine is not funded but can be given with the flu vaccine; which will not be available until April this year as changes have been made to improve coverage against anticipated strains of flu. A recent addition to available vaccines is Zostavax, which provides protection against shingles for those over 50. New patients are always welcome at Washbourn Medical Centre and those interested in immunisation are encouraged to contact the surgery.

Tone Ng Shiu skips out of Waimea Old Boys grasp in the 2014 Division One Final. Taylors Contractors Wanderers Sports Club prides itself on being a fantastic community sports club where young and old can enjoy sport, whether they’re participating or watching from the sidelines. Expectations for 2015 will be high for all sports that call the club home after consistently having a strong representation in everything from rugby and league, to cricket and netball. With rugby season on their doorstep, players and supporters will be looking forward to another successful year with both senior teams, division one and two looking to take out their championships. Training for the senior team began a few weeks ago and Todd Bavin, coach for the division two team, says preparation is going well. “We’ve got a lot of numbers this season and we’re on track to try and go back to back with the championships.” The strong team that took out the Nelson Bays Division two champs last year has remained much the same with the one new addition of Richie Bolitho, who has returned after spending some time overseas. After suffering an unfortunate injury, former divi-

sion one player, Ethan Reuban will also be joining the division two coaching team, with both Ethan and Todd taking on the managerial position for the team too. With the hard ground conditions at the Wanderers club, beach trainings have been preparing the teams for their coming competitions, along with their brand new gym facility. The community gym was officially opened in December last year and will provide players, as well as local residents, access to a fitness facility whenever they want. Division one will be looking forward to going a step further in the competion this season after making it into the finals of the Nelson Bays Division one championships for the second time, however, they missed out once again with the title going to Waimea Old Boys. The Tasman Trophy will also be an important competition on the calendar; being between Nelson and Marlborough, the strongest team is effectively the best in the top of the south with last years trophy going to a Blenheim team. A group of players was also sent to play in the Woodend Rugby Sevens tournament in Christchurch. While they won the plate trophy in 2013, last year they were knocked out in the cup round, along with an early knock out in the Nelson Sevens Tournament in Motueka. Division one is

also looking to see some talented players enter the team from division two. After two or three years playing in the senior B grade, players such as Sean King, Bobby Palmer and Willy Hamilton are among those keen to make their mark in the top ranks of Wanderers rugby. This year Johnny Bloxham and Sammie Gibbons will make up the coaching side for division one, with Frazer Lochead and Ian Biggs as team managers. All senior rugby will be starting on March 21 and will go right through until July/August. The JAB section of Wanderers will also be expecting big numbers after the 2014 season saw 14 teams of 240 children. The JAB season normally kicks off on registration night which is being held on Friday, March 6 at the club rooms from 5pm un-

til 7pm. The clubs major sponsor, Taylor’s Contracting, will once again be giving away a free rugby ball to every player that registers and pays their subscription on the registration night. The club will also see a new under 14 team to play in the age grades, thanks to a partnership with Waimea College. Wanderers Rugby Football Club is always on the look out for willing volunteers and rugby supporters to take on a number of important roles within the club. From team managers in the JAB section and senior divisions, to kitchen hands for the senior teams Thursday night meals after training.

Stillwell wins on home water Jacob Chandler

Third generation Nelson Powerboat racer, Julian Stillwell, took out top prize at the Lake Rotoiti Powerboat Championship on the weekend, putting him in second place for the New Zealand champs. Julian’s boat is a USA-built formula one, powered by 320 horsepower Mercury V6. The Richmond man says a lot of the boaties invest a lot of money in the sport but the races are designed to be a fair judgement on skill. “There would be eight guys at least who have good gear to run a race, but it’s not crucial. We have a rev limit and a weight limit and a couple of other engine restrictions to keep it not so much about money.” One of the difficulties of Lake Rotoiti is the altitude. Julian says this means he has to do a lot of fine tuning on the

A record 41 students entered the championships, hosted by Bowls Nelson and Sport Tasman, was held at Stoke Bowling Club.

It’s quite difficult to get maximum power out of the engine.” He says the water at Rotoiti is less buoyant than the other lakes he has competed at. “You get thrown around a lot more. It seems really hard.” Julian is part of the Rotoiti Powerboat Club which currently has around 30 smaller ‘clubman’ boats.

He says they are a good way to get into the sport as they are easy to learn and cheap to run. “It gives kids an opportunity to get into the sport and it’s a class we really want to foster.” Julian faces two more competitions before a New Zealand champion is crowned. Currently he sits only two points behind the leader. He will be competing at Lake Kaniere in Hokitika at Easter and Cromwell on Anzac weekend.

Kids prepare for try-athlon Monique Bergman

School kids received a special delivery with Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon race packs delivered to around 20 schools across our region last week. Over 1800 kids from Nelson-Tasman took part in the event last year and it is hoped the figure will increase this year. Overall, the series was a huge success with 22,000 children across New Zealand racing. The TRYathlon is the world’s largest triathlon series for under 16years and every child who participates receives a certificate, medal, race Tshirt and a swim cap. It will be held at the Tahunanui recreation ground and all children swim

50 to 100 metres, bike four to eight kilometres, depending on their age, and all finish with a 1.5kilometre run. This year participants will have the chance to meet sporting celebrities Dillon Boucher, Aaron Gate and Sam Demster who will be attending and handing out medals on the day. Richmond School has 63 kids participating in this year’s event and has been running swimming lessons through the school leading up to the event. There are 14 events across New Zealand running from December until April, with the Nelson event race held on Sunday, March 9. Registrations for this event close on Wednesday March 4.

Super 15 Tipping

Hi Nelson Fishos! That time is here, Tasman Bay Snapper Classic is this Saturday 7th March. The biggest event on the fishing calendar is this weekend. With a recipe of massive prizes, awesome venue (Speights Alehouse), great support from local sponsors and an auction to support worthy charity Big Brothers Big Sisters Nelson, this is one not to be missed. Lead by organizer Troy Dando, with the support of the Dawnbreakers Fishing Club, this competition is set to become a major event from now on. This is a four person team's one day event with all competitors having to leave from one base, Nelson ramps, and in the same set area to fish of Tasman Bay, only as high up as Greville harbour, French Pass across to Separation Point. Timing is perfect, with big schools of snapper having finished their spawning and coming back on the chew in the last few weeks. Good size snapper are getting caught on the rod and reel again, giving eve-

ryone with a bait in the water a chance of collecting a prize. Recent reports are of snaps being caught in the shallows and deeper waters on both sides of the bay, kingfish seen everywhere and good size gurnard, john dory and blue cod also. So give the boat a check over this week, get together your team of four people and follow the easy steps online to complete your entry before this Thursday night, on www. tasmanbaysnapperclassic.co.nz. So Nelson folk, come along and check out the fish weigh-in and fish on display from 3-5 pm this Saturday at Speight's Ale House, which will be followed at 5.45pm by a fresh fish auction of the donated fish and lots of new sponsored items, with all proceeds from both going to the local charity. A professional filleter will be available for a small donation to fully fillet out those fish that people have won the bidding on. What could be better than "fresh as" fish to take home, as well as lots of new gear to bid on. See you there.

Axewoman makes debut in Murchison

The Murchison A and P Show got off to a damp, drizzly start last Saturday, but things soon improved as the skies cleared and a crowd of about 2000 enjoyed the stalls, equestrian events, shearing, animal nursery and cooking displays. Secretary Colette Barrow says the standard of exhibits at Saturday’s show at the Murchison Sport, Recreation and Cultural Centre and Murchison Domain was especially high. The photography and cooking competitions attracted outstanding entries while there was also a “very high calibre of horses and ponies in all sections of the show”. Colette says another big attraction was the cooking displays by the “mad wild food chef ”, better known as Daryl Crimp. “Crimpy whipped up some amazing dishes from venison back straps to the perfect whitebait patties. There was also some hilarious humour and crowd participation and a splash of wine here and there making two great shows to watch.” The Goldpine animal tent was also popular with “a constant flow of families and children of all ages coming through all day to pet, scratch and admire the cute and cuddly animals on display”. Entertainment was provided by Harmony Aquarian of New Zealand’s Got Talent fame who performed a variety of tunes from the TNL Music truck, Colette says. The- Principal, 30 woodchoppers, Nelson Collegeincluding for Girls axewoman Mel Jones who was making her competitive dette Milligan - Director, INP Medical Clinic but, shearers, terrier racing and Grand Parade were the other big attractions. “The committee was very pleased with the day,” Colette says.

Paddleboarders join kayakers at Bullerfest

The stand up paddleboarders provided most of the entertainment at the Bullerfest with plenty of thrills and spills as they negotiated the grade three O’Sullivan Rapids on the Buller River. It was the first time stand up paddleboards were included in the three-day white water event based at Murchison and organiser Sophia Mulder says the paddlers gave the spectators plenty of laughs. Sunday’s paddleboarding was followed by another fun event, the Cardboard Cup, featuring two paddlers racing in a vessel made out of duct tape and cardboard. “The paddleboarding is becoming popular at whitewater events in the US so we decided to include it this year as a bit of a trial,” Sophia says. “It gives people who aren’t necessarily kayakers a chance to compete and it was pretty good fun for the spectators.” However, Sophia says Bullerfest got off to a more serious start on Friday with the Boater

Cross on the Matakitaki River. That was followed by the Kayak Slalom and Rafter Cross on O’Sullivan’s Rapid on Saturday. John Snook of Rotorua won the Boater Cross which is described as a blend of down river racing and roller derby with four paddlers contesting each heat. Murchison’s Daan Jimmink and Phil Palzer were second and third respectively while Murchison’s Rata LovellSmith won the women’s final - John, Daan and Phil finished in the same order in the kayak slalom. Sophia says the Rafter Cross followed the same format as the Boater Cross with four rafts racing head-to-head through a slalom course on O’Sullivans Rapid.. “The racing was competitive but the numbers were down a lot on last year because we had a clash with the Citroen whitewater event in Queenstown,” Sophia says. “That was a bit of a communication mix-up but we’ve got the dates right for next year.’

Navigation Safety Bylaw: Temporary reservations and speed limit uplifting for maritime events

Do you have a great community arts project that needs some money to make it happen?

In line with the provisions of the Navigation Safety Bylaw 2005, the Tasman District Council Harbourmaster has (or may soon) granted authorisations for the following known events during March 2015. Other events may also occur during this time but the Harbourmaster has not yet received further applications.

Tasman District Council’s Creative Communities Scheme has money to help groups and individuals running arts projects in the Tasman District. Creative Communities provides funding to support community involvement in the arts, whether that’s music, theatre, festivals, mural painting, outdoor sculptures, art in public spaces, kapa haka, singing, art workshops or something else. Funded by Creative New Zealand, the Council’s Creative Communities Scheme is designed to support opportunities for communities, urban or rural, to have a go at art whether it’s for hobby or to develop a career, said fund co-ordinator Mike Tasman Jones. “We’re looking for art projects with broad community involvement, involve young people or projects that support the diverse arts and cultural traditions of local communities.” The Tasman Creative Communities Scheme funding in 2014 enabled theatre groups like “Body and Space” to workshop “The Map” with local Golden Bay performers aged 13 to adults before the community performance. The Embroiders Guild were able to host a weekend of workshops for beginners to “old hands”, budding authors were able to attend a “Breaking into Print” workshop, 50 members of the Mapua community were able to roll up their sleeves, mix up the grout and mosaic one wall of the public toilets and 500 Richmond residents watched a large cast of locals at the outdoor summer theatre in Washbourn Gardens. The Creative Communities Scheme funding, alongside a huge amount of energy and enthusiasm from the applicants, is what enabled these opportunities and many others to take place. If you have a great community arts project needing some dollars to make it happen the Tasman Creative Communities Scheme maybe just what you’re looking for. There are three rounds of applications per year. The next round closes on 10 March 2015, for projects starting after 1 April, the next rounds later in 2015 close 10 July and 10 November. There is $39,007.80 allocated per annum with allocations averaging $1,000. For application forms go to www.tasman.govt.nz and search ‘creative communities’ or contact Mike Tasman-Jones on Ph. 03 543 8400 for further information.

Feedback sought – Rural land use and subdivision policy review In recent months, the Council has been preparing changes to rural land use and subdivision provisions in its Tasman Resource Management Plan. Feedback on a Draft Plan Change is now being sought from residents. The proposed changes could provide opportunities for rural housing and subdivision with specific opportunities for rural commercial activities, cooperative living and rural-residential development. The new ideas have been developed from an earlier period of consultation on issues and options and Council workshops on the feedback received. The Council is now seeking public input into the Draft Plan Change until the end of March 2015. To find out more and see a copy of the draft Plan Change you can go to the Council’s website or view at the Council’s Service Centres. For more information about the rural review and the Draft Plan Change contact: Sonya Leusink-Sladen, Email: Sonya.Leusink-Sladen@tasman.govt.nz or Mary Honey, Email: Mary.Honey@tasman.govt.nz
