Economy on the up The Nelson economy is on the up, says a senior economist, and the outlook is even brighter. According to Infometrics’ quarterly economic monitor, economic activity in Nelson is growing at a healthy clip and, with improving returns in the broader region’s primary sector and increasing air connections set to stimulate business and visitor activity, this period of robust economic

growth looks set to continue. Infometrics senior economist, Benje Patterson, says Nelson’s economy grew by 3.1 per cent over the year to June 2015, which was the fifth fastest of New Zealand’s sixteen regions. “Economic growth in neighbouring Tasman is also healthy, with Tasman’s GDP having expanded by 3.2 per cent over the June year.”

Growth in economic activity is broadbased across most indicators of spending and investment, with firms also becoming increasingly confident to take on new staff. Nelson’s unemployment rate has eased to close to 4.5 per cent, compared with a peak of 5.2 per cent in December 2012. “Further evidence of these improving job prospects can be seen in the reduction of people claiming jobseeker benefits, as well

as the soaring level of inbound net migration into Nelson,” says Benje. Infometrics’ report shows that Nelson house prices climbed 3.2 per cent over the year to June. Patterson says that although building consents in Nelson remain soft, rising consent numbers in Tasman are keeping local

Miracle baby fighting again Kate Russell Nelson’s very own ‘miracle baby’ has just celebrated his first birthday, but is now back in hospital fighting for his life. Jack Frost’s story featured in the Nelson Weekly last December, after his mum, Vicki Frost, went into labour at just 23 weeks, well short of the usual 40 weeks. Her waters broke at 21 weeks and she was told by doctors that her baby would be too young to save. But a call was made to Wellington hospital who took them in, and Vicki was given drugs to suppress the labour. Two days later, on August 26, she gave birth to Jack, weighing just 712 grams. This year, Vicki, her husband Marty and Jack have been enjoying life as a family of three back in Nelson, but after a rough weekend with Jack struggling to breathe, he was flown to Auckland’s Starship Hospital on Sunday for specialist treatment.

“I’ve noticed a reduction in noise and arguments since it’s closure. It would be nice if the space was used for something pro-community.”

“To me it doesn’t matter so much as I don’t drink, but I do understand why people don’t want it here.”

Nelson economy is on the up FROM PAGE 1 builders busy. “Furthermore, lower mortgage rates, coupled with improving business conditions, will continue stimulating interest in the Nelson/Tasman region’s housing

market over the coming months.” “Nelson will avoid many of the economic problems afflicting other parts of provincial New Zealand due to a relatively low exposure to dairying across the broader Nelson/Tasman region. “The lower New Zealand dollar

is stimulating returns for seafood exporters and businesses exposed to the horticulture sector, as well as encouraging more visitors to the area,” he says. Guest nights in Nelson climbed 3.9 per cent over the past year and the recent sharp lift in air

capacity to Nelson will further stimulate visitor numbers. “Jetstar, Originair, and Kiwi Regional Airlines’ recent decisions to begin flying into Nelson are also votes of confidence in the region’s economic and tourism outlook,” says Benje.

He is now in the paediatric intensive care unit and underwent surgery yesterday to look for a possible blockage in his throat. The outcome of his surgery is not yet known but Vicki stated they were all crossing their fingers that the problem could be resolved immediately. It is a heavy blow for the family, as Jack has been thriving and meeting all his milestones for his corrected age, which is eight months. He is eager to explore, smiles a lot and has a healthy appetite – especially for avocado, banana and his grandfather’s flounder.

Vicki says that although Jack still needs regular check-ups with his paediatrician, visits to an ear, nose and throat specialist, developmental check-ups, plus hearing and eye tests - he has done really well with all of them. Vicki says she has been blown away with the amount of interest in Jack. They’ve been sent first birthday cards from strangers and also received numerous gifts and cards when Jack was born. “I sent out 120 ‘thank you’ cards to people who sent us things or helped us,” she says.

New home, but no internet until March

Andrew Board

A Richmond couple moved into their brand new home last week, only to be told it will be nine months before they’ll have a phone line or internet – and there’s nothing they can do about it. Simon and Lara Gordon built the first house of a new nine-home subdivision near Champion Rd and moved in last week. They were told during the building phase that all new subdivisions have to be installed with fibre cable, not copper. So they installed the fibre and were only told after they moved in that there are no fibre cables on their road and that they’ll have to wait until March to be connected. Lara says it’s “crazy” that in 2015, and while living in a brand new home in the middle of a town like Richmond, they’ve been told they have to wait nine months for a phone line or internet. “Everything revolves around the world wide web these days. We do our banking online, bills get sent to us via email and the kids study is put online. The internet is an essential service in this modern world, it’s like saying you have to put a special water cable in but it isn’t con-

They’ve been in touch with Spark and Chorus to try and find a solution but have been told repeatedly there is none. In the meantime, Lara has increased her mobile plan as high as it can go so the family can check their emails. They say a quote to have copper installed was over $3000. “The thing that annoys us is that they’re putting fibre into streets that already have copper, so already have the internet and a phone,” says Lara. “The majority of them aren’t going to connect to it and you have all these new

subdivisions that have been told they have to have fibre, but they’re not doing those streets.” Editor’s note: Late yesterday, in fact right on our deadline, Nelson Weekly got a response from Chorus on this issue: “The March 2016 date indicated is for the wider area, not for this subdivision. The work to connect the subdivision to fibre is currently underway and is due to be finished in about three weeks. We will work with our local guys in the area to determine the best potential solution for the customer, depending on the circumstances. This may include speeding up the fibre work, if possible.”

You can regain your confidence with Eyelid Surgery Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty is a procedure in which excess upper and/or lower eyelid skin is removed. Suitable candidates will find that excess skin can make the lids feel heavy which in turn can create headaches, affect peripheral vision ( a concern when driving) and can make applying makeup difficult. Dr Greg Taylor will discuss your expectations of the surgery with a detailed preoperative consultation. We provide 24/7 post-op on call, and post-operative care indefinitely to ensure you’re well looked after.

Trampers rescued: Rescuers have been successful in recovering two trampers who got into difficulty in the Nelson Lakes National Park Saturday afternoon. Conditions in the area prevented a helicopter getting to the pair yesterday but they were picked up about 1pm Sunday during a break in the weather. The Irish woman and Latvian man, both in their mid-twenties, were checked by an advanced paramedic on the mountain and did not require further medical treatment. Search coordinator Senior Constable Dave Colville says the first rescue team to reach the pair early Sunday morning had done an outstanding job to bring them back from a severely hypothermic state prior to the helicopter’s arrival. The rescue team had tramped through the night in snow and high winds to reach the pair about 5.30am. There was a wind chill of -18deg and heavy blowing snow.

Anyone with information should call Nelson Police on 546 3840. Information can also be given by calling Crimestoppers Ph 0800 555 111.

Store ram-raided: A Nelson store had its front doors smashed by a car before thousands of dollars worth of mag wheel rims stolen. Mag and Turbo’s alarm was activated at around 6am this morning, and when security staff arrived it was discovered that the front windows had been smashed and stock stolen. It is believed a vehicle was used to smash the windows on the Vanguard St business.

All Blacks visit Stoke School: Thanks to the video skills of Room 11 at Stoke School, Nelson was visited by none other than the All Blacks on Thursday afternoon.The class entered a three minute video into a national competition to prove they were passionate about the All Blacks, and were among ten winners from around the country. Julian Savea, Owen Franks and Codie Taylor were welcomed into the school

with a song and haka, before several lucky students got to ask them some hard-hitting questions, like how be being an All Black had changed their life. Then room 11 was treated to a rippa rugby match with Franks, Savea and Taylor doing the coaching.

Work has already started on the $1.6million project, situated at Saxton Stadium, which will see the 333m velodrome facility completed within the next 16 to 20 months. The project is being funded by Nelson City and Tasman District councils, which are contributing 80 per cent of the total. The Saxton Velodrome Trust is charged with raising the remainder, (approximately $320,000).

No liquor store for Victory Campaigners against the controversial Victory Liquor Centre are calling its owners’ decision to withdraw their licence renewal application “a fantastic result for the community”. Keep Victory Safe community developer Gayle Petch and Nelson City Councillor Matt Lawrey say the opening of the store in 2013 brought with it a significant rise in alcohol-related problems, including antisocial and intimidating behaviour, broken bottles and RTD cans in the park and playground, vandalism and other petty crime. Matt says the dramatic decrease in all of these problems since the shop closed in January proves that Victory was always the wrong place for a liquor store. Gayle says she’s thrilled the store is gone for good. “A store selling cheap liquor, with easy access to a park and close to preschools and schools, was never something Victory wanted or needed, and I know many in the community will be breathing a sigh of relief. I certainly am!” Both Gayle and Matt thanked lawyer Nigel McFadden who worked pro bono to help fight the licence renewal application. There were 26 objections to the Victory Liquor Centre’s on-licence and off-licence renewal application from various groups and individuals, including community groups, police and the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board.

Fun runners go blue on Father’s Day

A car smashed through a fence at the Whareama Rest Home in Stoke, on Friday. The car came from the Countdown supermarket car park, through the fence and was left with the front of the car hanging over the edge of the car park and into a driveway at Whareama. Staff at Whareama say no residents were hurt in the accident. Photo: Leroy Bull.

They came with face paint, they came dressed up and even their dogs came wearing some blue. The fun runners and walkers really got into the Blue September spirit on Sunday. It’s the second year in a row MS Ford has hosted the Blue September Father’s Day 5km fun run or walk. The event raises money for Blue September, which aims to raise awareness

about prostate cancer. The event is held on Father’s Day to further tie-in with the theme, and MS Ford marketing manager Amanda Sears says the event raised more than $2000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. “I was really impressed with the day and I was really, really impressed with how everyone got dressed up and wore blue.”

There were 85 people registered for the fun run or walk, with the course organised by Peter Gibbs and volunteers from the Nelson Prostate Cancer Support Group helping direct runners and walkers. Amanda says people wanting to donate to the Blue September cause can visit the MS Ford showroom, where a donation box will be for the month.

Work to begin on Trafalgar Centre this week

Work on upgrading the Trafalgar Centre will get underway this week, nearly two years after the building was closed. Local firm Gibbons Construction have been appointed to do the physical works, and are already beginning to establish themselves onsite. The long-awaited project was given the green light at a council meeting last month, and the start of the work comes as a relief for many. The iconic building has been closed since December 2013 after it was

Lawrie and Janet Hardaker enjoy receiving a Christmas card as much as the next person. But the latest card they received in the post has given them more laughs than most. That’s because after the card was sent last December, it finally arrived in the letterbox last week. Lawrie says their first reaction was to laugh. “Janet then got on the phone to her sister-in-law [who sent the card] and asked if they’d just sent a card to us, and she said 'no,' they sent one last December.” The story of the missing card has

jane

been a topic of hot conversation amongst their friends and neighbours, and Lawrie says he did call NZ Post to ask what may have happened to the card. “All they could do was chuckle and laugh. They had no idea.” The card was sent by Robert and Elizabeth Nelson from New Plymouth, but Lawrie says it was not processed by NZ Post until August, so was probably stuck down the side of a mailbox for the past eight months. “It’s caused a lot of laughs and Elizabeth said that she won’t bother sending a card this year as we’ve already got one.”

School fair season begins The Appleby School Country Fair has always been a crowd pleaser and a magnet for sunshine, fun and community spirit. The school’s major fundraiser has been a popular event since the 90s and every year it has grown in size, offering the public an array of food, entertainment, fair ground activities, bargains and competitions. “It was fantastic, we had a huge turn out, everybody pitched in and we had a great day,” says fair manager, Laura Southward. “As usual, we worked on parking to make it as smooth as

possible for people coming to the fair and we always try and bring something new in, this year it was laser tag and that went really well, particularly for the older kids.” Laura says the fair gets great support. “We had amazing support yet again from the local community, its one of the really lovely things about where we are, not only is it the school parents that pitch in but we get people from around the community.” The total raised hasn’t been counted yet, but last year’s event raised more than $40,000.

Local businesses up for national awards

Three Nelson businesses have been named as finalists in the 2015 Hospitality New Zealand Awards for Excellence. The Playhouse Theatre is a finalist in the Best Entertainment/Music Venue section, The Jellyfish Cafe and Bar is a finalist in the Best Cafe, while the Hampden Hotel in Murchison is a finalist in the Best Country Hotel section. The broad spectrum of award finalists is spread paint | wallpaper | curtains | blinds across 15 separate categories, with a total of 50 entries making it through to the final judging stage. Hospitality New Zealand chief executive Bruce Robertson says the quality of entries into the awards was of an extremely high standard, and those selected as finalists represented the very best in their specific fields. “The awards have been designed to encapsulate all aspects of the hospitality industry – including the ‘back office’ disciplines of a business from an operational perspective, through to the ‘front of house’ attributes,” he says. Entrants into the Hospitality New Zealand Awards for Excellence are judged over a seven week period by a panel of independent industry professionals, who assess every competitor on a range of commercial and operational per metre criteria. These include staff training and human resources, customer service, food and beverages, marketing and promotional activities, and the demonstration of business growth. Winners of the Hospitality New Zealand Awards for Excellence will be announced at the organisation’s national conference being held in Nelson on October 8.

Air NZ prices: Following up your Air NZ stories. I was stunned to find that checking in a within-weight bag to Auckland on Friday at the Air NZ counter at the airport now costs $60. Absolutely incredible... I wonder when they (more than) doubled it to this?

TUESDAY 8 September 2015

If this isn't price gouging, what is? I imagine we'll now see a change, with increased competition. Regards, Morag Woode.

Victory liquor owners withdraw licence application. Do think it's good news for the Victory community? Awesome, now turn it into a community lounge where families can come and play board games, cards, marbles, etc, with no wifi and no phones allowed. Shawnee Burford-Young.

No I don't. I think people have a right to manage their own purchases and with the cameras in the square now any issues should be sorted. Victory has had a liquor store for well over 20 years and it ticked along nicely. Those with issues are going to have them no matter if there is a liquor store there or not. Those increased issues have more to do with other reasons than the fact that the shop was there, in my opinion as a resident for over 20 years. Sharon Tarapipi Pi. What's next? Close down the fish and chip shop because there are obese people in Victory Square. Sheree Piesse.

Does it really matter, you buy it at the supermarket or any liquor store within walking or driving distance? If people want to buy alcohol, they will. Alison Beare. Just walk down the street, there are plenty of places to buy alcohol. Kim Bateman. Nice to see the community take control of their neighbourhood. John Sauer. I think it's great, as some say, if you want liquor there are plenty of places to purchase it close by. Also, why make it easier, you want it, just go a little further to get it. No big deal, just my thoughts. Hillary Tupe. Killing small business, well done, wouldn't want him to provide for his family. Matt Inglis.

Blokes’ sheds opened for charity Locally Owned and Operated

Jessie Johnston

They come in all shapes and sizes and various states of tidiness, and now is the perfect chance to get an up close and personal look into some of the region’s classic kiwi sheds. Graeme Wilson will be amongst those supporting the Life Education Trust by sharing his creations and the shed that houses his passion for woodwork. Joinery has been his life-long career and he certainly had a hard time giving it up for retirement. “I retired three times, first time I lasted until lunch on the first day and then I went out and got a job. I went to Viking Furniture and the guy that was running it said ‘boy am I pleased to see someone who can work, I’ve just got the contract to do all the fittings in the Suburban Club and you’re it, so go get your tools and come back after lunch,’ so I did. “When we finished all those contracts he became ill and had to give the business away, and I thought it was a good time to retire again, so I did. By the middle of the first day I was hacked off so I went down to Orange Joinery and they had just got the contract for fitting out the apart-

ment blocks round the harbour, so I went home, got my tools and started work. I only wanted to work, I didn’t want to do management which is what I’d been into. So I worked there for a while until their manager left and then I looked after the business until they found another one, which took them a couple of years because they weren’t actually looking.” When Graeme did retire for the third and final time, woodworking was the obvious choice to keep him busy. “I was used to working, I liked working and I can’t bear sitting still, so I had to find something to do.” A long time love of the outdoors inspired Graeme to build two kayaks, specifically constructed for both him and his wife. His other projects have included grandfather clocks, a roller top desk, nesting tables, his TV cabi-

net and most recently, wooden pictures. Starting out as Marquetry – the art of using pieces of veneer to form designs – Graeme has developed the craft into 3D works of art, some being scenes he has photographed, some of family and others from his imagination. For the Blokes in Sheds tour Graeme will be demonstrat-

ing his craft by creating a wooden picture of the Life Education Trusts mascot, Harold the giraffe, as well as offering people a look at the wooden kayaks and other completed woodwork creations Tickets are still on sale for the fundraising tour which will be held on Sunday, September 13, from 10am. The tour will include

a wide range of other shed owners passions and collections. Tickets are $15 and can be bought off Ticket Direct, GrabOne or by emailing the trust at nelsontasman@lifeedtrust.org.nz. Food will also be available with a pizza oven at Higgins Park and a BBQ at another location.

Interest Free Loans for Residential Builds

For a better home loan deal tailored to your lifestyle, talk to the Nelson Building Society (NBS). NBS offers a competitive range of home loan options. It’s often difficult to afford loan repayments during the construction period of a new home, as well as paying rent. We currently have a special offer for residential build loans, during the construction period. Approved customers have the opportunity to pay no interest for the first three months of their build loan. This interest free period could save thousands of dollars. A number of builders aim to start and finish their residential builds within a 3 month period, so NBS approved customers could pay no interest during the construction of their new home. No registered valuations will be required for progress payments and competitive fixed rate options will be available upon completion of the build. We also offer a simple, quick and no fuss approval for clients wanting to see if they qualify. Call into your local NBS Branch today.

NMIT commerce degree now fully accredited Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology’s Applied Business area has become one of the first in the country to be fully accredited for its Bachelor of Commerce degree by the Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand. NMIT has gained a renewed five year accreditation by the Australasian institute while the Chartered Public Accountants of Australia has also renewed its approval for professional accreditation at NMIT. NMIT chief executive Tony Gray says it’s a “big deal” for the institute, allowing students to graduate with qualifications that rank with any Australasian university. “It keeps NMIT as a leading provider of qualifications for those aspiring to become a chartered accountant." Applied Business manager John Inglis says NMIT was the first institute from either New Zealand or Australia to be tested for accreditation by CAANZ, the trans-Tasman institute formed last year. “It’s a superb outcome for the region and those seeking to become chartered accountants”. John says the accreditation followed rigorous testing of programme content and teaching quality. “NMIT has been able to attract remarkable tutors; people who’ve worked all over the world in chief financial officer roles, people who have advised governments and so on”. John says having the highest possible programme accreditation standards will be attractive to students, local and overseas. With a worldwide shortage of accountants, students in Asia are looking at fully accredited institutes like NMIT to get into the profession. “The big four firms are really starting to grow their business in China for example and CPA Australia now has offices in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing”.

Today Nelson Weekly turns 5 years old. It's been a heck of a journey for those involved. Editor and director Andrew Board tells his story of how the paper started. Steve Page will tell you that it started with three clients in one day asking him to start a newspaper in Nelson, all because they wanted better value for their advertising dollar. For me, it started with a phone call. Back in the winter of 2010, Steve and his wife Jenny Bates had already owned

the Waimea Weekly newspaper for five years, that paper covered all of Richmond and down as far south as Murchison. I’d worked for the Waimea Weekly previously, but when the phone call came I was a journalist at another newspaper. My then-girlfriend Sarah was in advertising at the same paper. The call was from Steve and it went like this: “Stuff it, I’m going to start a paper in Nelson. You want to jump on board?” After the phone call, I

Forget 2011, the party starts this weekend and thousands will be there to kick it off kiwi-style. This Saturday Nelson is attempting break a Guinness World Record by hosting the world’s largest haka at Tahunanui Beach. The haka is to celebrate one year until the world comes to Nelson for the Rugby World Cup. Three thousand people are needed to perform the famous Ka mate haka, often performed by the All Blacks, and they are encouraged to wear whatever feels right. “If you are Scottish, wear you whanau tartan, if you are part of a sporting group, wear your uniforms,

this is a celebration of the great melting pot in Aotearoa,’’ says orgainser Mike Elkington. Around 100 people, men and women, turned up to a haka practice at Neale Park last Sunday and Mike says he has taught the haka to hundreds of other people from around the region over the past couple of months. The mass haka is being held this Saturday, 11 September with organisers asking people to arrive by 1pm for the world record attempt at 3pm. Everyone is invited to attend and be a part of history, rain, hail or shine.

Spring 'hoedown' to be held on new dance floor Kate Russell A new extended dance floor at Deville will be christened this weekend, with a 'spring hoedown' dance party. The event is to celebrate the arrival of spring and to get people out and about again after a long winter. It will feature two local acts - DJ Grant Smithies and The Immigrants, as well as The Dark Country, who hail from Motueka and Westport. The owner of the popular Nelson cafe, Geoff McLean, has been working on the construction of the dance floor over the past couple of weekends, and it will be ready for the event this Saturday night. The dance floor will also double up as a deck. “The area didn't flow very well, so we thought – lets extend it,” says Geoff. “It will be a great dance floor, and secondly, it will be so much better for tables and chairs in the summer.” The project has been a real 'team effort,' with staff, family and friends pitching in over a couple of working bees. Geoff says they are planning on hosting lots of live music in the coming summer months.

Deville owner Geoff McLean gets to work on their new dance floor area on Sunday. Photo: Kate Russell. “Over the last two or three years we've been trying to get the music side of things going, and it's nice to get some excitement happening after a very ordinary winter," he says. "Summer's coming, people love being outside and this is a great extension.” Grant Smithies says it's great to see a local business expanding its live music area in these troubled economic times, and

encourages people to get along to event. This will be the third dance party in this format that Deville have hosted, with the last one selling out two weeks in advance. Deville Spring Barn Dance, Saturday 12th September at 8:30pm. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased from Deville.

Nelson brothers Huw and Rhys John may be relatively new to the area, but they had no problems finding their way around on Sunday when they raced through Richmond and Stoke on their way to winning the Wily Weka Challenge. The brothers formed one of the 86 teams entered in the Nelson Orienteering Club's event that involved finding controls marked on a map of Richmond, Stoke and Monaco. The controls were allocated points depending on their difficulty and Huw and Rhys amassed an impressive 3060 points in six hours. "We went into the Richmond foothills first and then out to Stoke and up into the hills around Panorama Drive," Huw says. "The hills were the easiest part, which sounds strange, but we found it so hard pounding the pavements - it was hard on the legs." Huw says they were using the race as the official starting point for their training for the Godzone Adventure race in the Nelson-Tasman region next April. "It was the first hit out for the season," Rhys says. "We did Godzone in different teams last year, but we are in the same team this time so it was a good chance to race together and see how we went."

Dave Quested and Kim Hawkes won the mixed team's six-hour section with 2860 points, Marjolein Edwards, Pam Morris and Jacqui MacIntyre won the women's section with 2310 points, Wayne Hennessy and Roderick Morrison won the family section and Garin College's Trudi Kent, Molly Inman, Anya Schultz and Kate McCashin won the junior section with 1230 points. Duncan Darroch, Dexter Buchanan and Nicky Baxter were the best of the three-hour teams, winning the mixed section with 1730 points. Irene Firestone, Anna Gibbons and Mel Shirley won the women's section with 1420 points, Chris and Samuel Charles and Bryn Thurlow won the family section with 1280 points, while Nigel Kelly, Malcolm Edridge and Brad Wallace won the men's section with 1400 points. Course planner Gordon Sloane says the competitors enjoyed the race which is likely to be held in St Arnaud next year. Although the majority of controls were in urban areas, Gordon says teams had a chance to get high into the Richmond Hills to find some of the higher scoring controls. "Most people I spoke to enjoyed the course," Gordon says. "I think the hill challenge at both ends of the course stitched it together quite well."

Best in the country Andrew Board

It’s official: Nelson College has the best secondary school football team in the country. Nelson beat defending champions Sacred Heart College 2-1 at Saxton Field on Friday to claim the title. Goals from Max Winterton and Matt Tod-Smith gave Nelson a handy lead before the visitors scored with ten minutes remaining. It is the first time Nelson has won the Lotto New Zealand Secondary School Football tournament and coach Davor Tavich was thrilled after the game. “It was a good win.

We played well and our boys played really hard.” He credited the defence for giving his team good go-forward ball, but said he couldn’t single out a man of the match. “They were all good, all played with heart. I’m very happy.” Earlier in the week Nelson looked strong from the start, winning comfortably through the group stage. Nelson played Saint Kentigern College in the quarter finals of the tournament and, after playing extra time with no score, the game went to penalties. It was then that Nelson goal keeper Alan Brook earned his place in

the school's football folklore, saving three penalties to ensure his team made the semi finals. There the school faced football powerhouse Mount Albert Grammar from Auckland. Nelson scored two second half goals thanks to Kevin Obed and Matt TodSmith to reach the final against the Danny Hay-coached Sacred Heart College. Tournament director and general manager of Nelson Bays Football, Clive Beaumont, says the tournament was a huge success. “Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the week, we had some very trying conditions. There was a challenge to get the games played be-

cause the pitches were getting dangerous to the players." On Nelson's win, Clive says it was simply "remarkable". "I don't think the achievement of Nelson College can be overstated for a small regional school. Against the might of those schools from Auckland, it's just remarkable. It's the only word for it. I was trying to find out during the week, when was the last time a South Island school team won this tournament, I couldn't." Clive says the "unsung heroes" of last week were the groundkeepers from Nelmac for getting those pitches up to standard.

Jacks OPD through to premier final Jacks OPD are through to the premier club netball final at Saxton Stadium this Saturday, but it will have to wait until Thursday's minor semi-final to see whether it will be Prices or Richmond it will face. Semi-finals were played for all grades at Saxton Stadium on Saturday, and there were a number of intense battles for a berth in next week’s finals. All grades, excluding Premier, have a 1 v 4 and 2 v 3 format with the winners progressing to the final. The elite grade has a minor and major semi-final with 1 v 2, with the winner advancing to the final while the loser plays the winner of the 3 v 4 in the major semi on Thursday night. Prices Pharmacy A and Stoke NBS fought out a rugged encounter in the 3 v 4 minor semi-final, with Prices having a 27–23 lead at the major break. Stoke fought back to win the second half 31– 28, however Prices had the final say when Shar Lowe nailed the final goal with seconds on the clock. The stand out player on court was Stoke captain Megan Thomson, who scored 41 from

43 for a 95 per cent average. She was on the end of a number of long range, precision feeds and at times was asked to take some difficult ball. Jacks OPD entered their 1 v 2 major semi-final as favourites against Richmond Glass, who were without the services of Lisa and Amiee Book. While Richmond still had a wealth of skill and experience on court they were no match for the in-form green team. The Jacks shooters were receiving an abundance of stress-free ball and were converting at will (86 per cent), and while the Richmond shooters were not far behind (80 per cent) they were not getting the same opportunities in the 73–35 result. With Jacks claiming one berth in the final, it is now down to Richmond and Prices to fight it out for the second. The teams have shared the spoils in the competition with Prices claiming the first round win and Richmond the

Richmond had a “patchy” game and will look to come out as first round, however in the last a very different unit. Richmond three games of the regular season believes they have “got the goods”, they have “hit their strides”. they will re-group and play like it Richmond has filed Saturday’s is their final. Lisa will anchor the

mid court and provide the link through court, while Kat Jones will lead the defensive end. Kathleen Thornalley and Amiee are an effective shooting duo, while Kim Starnes could also don a shooting bib. After a perfect record of 12 wins from 12 games, Prices stumbled to loose the final two games in regular competition before defeating Stoke. Coach Mandy Whiting has a versatile lineup with four accomplished shooters, a plethora of options in the mid court, and a couple of options in the defensive circle. While Chelsea Brooks got the nod as the starting goal shoot, Shar Lowe certainly played her way into contention with her contribution on Saturday. Mahina Selby-Law can play at either end of the court, however she has put in some commendable performances at goal attack. Thursday’s game could go right down to the wire, however, if Jacks put in another clinical performance like Saturday neither Richmond or Prices are likely to come close... but anything can happen in finals netball.

Tennis season launched in Tahuna The start of spring means the end of winter tennis and for the Tahuna Tennis Club, a chance to welcome new members. The club celebrated its annual open day on Saturday and club captain Mike Delaney says the club is again looking strong heading into the interclub season. “We are a really diverse club ability-wise. We have some of the best players in the region here and we also have some very social players, which gives the club a good feel and we’re certainly keen

for more players to come and join us.” The open day gave those from outside the club the chance to come down and give tennis a go and Mike says they’re hoping to sign up a few new members before the start of the season. “People who just want to play social tennis are more than welcome, as are those who want to play interclub. We always do well in inter-club competitions, we have teams in every grade and room for new players.” For the third year in a row the

club is sponsored by the Speight’s Ale House. Mike says the club is also hosting a Have a Go day for kids this Saturday. The day is free and for kids of all abilities. Club coach Suzanne Spencer says all gear is provided and it’s a great opportunity to gets kids, aged up to 12, the chance to have a go at tennis. The Have a Go day starts from 9.30am. Mike says people can just come down every Saturday afternoon and join in their club day.
