Charlotte Trundle Excitement is growing for Rugby World Cup 2011as local fans gear up for the one of the biggest sporting events to be staged in New Zealand. Although Wanaka will not host a team, Lake Wanaka Tourism (LWT) encourages the community to adopt one of the teams coming to the Queenstown Lakes region. “Get behind one of these teams, give them a warm welcome and make them feel at home,” LWT general manager James Helmore said. Queenstown is an official training venue for four teams in the first two weeks in September: Ireland, Georgia, Romania and England. The

Queenstown Lakes District Council World Cup coordinator Jono Sutherland is currently in talks with English team management to bring four players to Wanaka on September 15. The players could arrive by helicopter and spend about an hour chatting with locals and school children. The Romanian team is also keen to travel around the district and Jono is working to include a visit to Wanaka in their plans. Children from Makarora School and Hawea Flat School have been invited to the airport welcome for the Irish team on September 1. “We are trying to target the smaller schools and give them opportunities

inbrief Driver offends The driver of a speeding Porsche who raised the ire of Wanaka Sun readers this week is likely to receive an infringement notice, according to Constable Bruce McLean of the Wanaka Police. The man was seen driving around town and on the road to Treble Cone, resulting in text messages to the Wanaka Sun text board complaining about his “arrogant, dangerous” driving, allegedly including speeding and passing on blind corners. Constable McLean said the police will be following up a formal written complaint they have received which identified the car and registration. “I think it is likely he will be issued with an infringement notice,” he said. Constable McLean said the texts to the Wanaka Sun are “a great response from the public”. “Too many people think he’s a bad driver – it’s got to sink in,” he said.

The Queenstown Lakes District Council has a new procurement strategy. Mayor Vanessa van Uden was a critic of the council’s preferred contractors policy when she was a councillor, questioning whether it delivered value for money to ratepayers. The council’s infrastructure services committee adopted a new strategy this week, where consultant panels will be used for transport and water capital design work projects, with a minimum of 20 percent of the work up for tender and 80 percent negotiated on a value-for-money basis. When capital works are completed, contracts will be established by open tender based on the lowest cost. Solid waste will be managed by the council.

Beer comp for fest A home brew beer competition will be a new event at this year’s Willowridge Wanakafest. Event manager Laurel Morrison said the competition will be part of Wanakafest’s Wine and Food Festival. The competition winner will have their beer brewed by Wanaka Beerworks and it will feature as a special festival beer in next year’s Wanakafest. “With three months to go until the festival, brewers will need to dust off their kits to prepare for this inaugural event,” Laurel said. Festival organisers are putting together a judging panel for the new competition. Wanakafest’s Wine and Food Festival will run for two days this year, with a ‘wacky’ theme on the second day. “Wine and food stall holders will be encouraged to include some unique foods found in our region, interesting combinations, and have fun with the theme,” Laurel said. “We have some really high profile chefs and wine makers on board already. I am really excited to see what people come up with.” Willowridge Wanakafest takes place from October 19 – 23.

Actor Sam Neill, pictured, has put his stamp of approval on two Wanaka cinemas to open later this year by agreeing to be their patron. Best known for his roles in Hollywood blockbuster movies Jurassic Park, The Piano and The Hunt for Red October, Sam was in Wanaka last week on his way to Los Angeles to shoot a new movie called Alcatraz. Cinema co-owner Patrick McAteer,whohaspreviously worked in the film industry, caught up with Sam while he was in town. “We had a lovely dinner, during which time I took him over plans

for the new cinema and he agreed to be our patron,” he said. “This is a bit of a coup for Wanaka, as he is New Zealand’s most recognised actor.” Patrick and co-owner Allan Dippie hope the theatre will be the first cinema in the Queenstown Lakes District to have a 3D screen. There will be two cinemas: a tiered cinema featuring 40 leather electrically reclining seats, and a private screening room with 16 seats, both using state-of-the-art technology from America. The cinema will also offer

The Otago Regional Council will hold water metering expos in Cromwell and Ranfurly, helping local water users become more familiar with the rules around water measuring and see the latest metering technology. The installation of water measuring devices must be in place by November 2012 at the earliest, under the Government’s National Environmental Standard for water measurement. An ORC spokesperson said the expos offered a timely opportunity for groups of landowners to band together to negotiate the purchase of metering devices which best suited their properties. The Cromwell expo will be held at the Cromwell Presbyterian Church on Wednesday August 3, from 1pm.

The money, raised by a community garage sale last month, will be used to fund a second part-time receptionist and will provide a boost to Community Networks which has had a particularly busy period after the February earthquake in Christchurch.

Holiday Fair Children enjoyed a village fair as part of the Community Networks holiday programme. All the stalls were hand made by the children and included biscuit bobbing, car racing, skittles and a candy store. The children were then given Dino Dollars to spend at the fair so they could learn how to spend money wisely. “The main object is for all the kids to have fun,” Community Networks holiday programme coordinator Colleen Carr said.

Study of infertility A University of Otago PhD student is surveying 2000 women in Otago and Southland to find more about women’s experience of infertility. Researcher Antoinette Righarts said the number of women in the southern region seeking specialist treatment for infertility can be identified, but it is not known how many other women do not seek help but could benefit from it. “My research aims to provide an indication of what the local situation is, what women’s access to services is like and what level of unmet need exists,” Ms Righarts said. About 2000 women aged 25-50 in Otago and Southland will be randomly selected from electoral rolls and invited to fill out a survey. The results will be an input into future research to investigate risk factors for infertility in New Zealand.

The Central Lakes Trust reported some significant milestones during the past year at its annual meeting in Cromwell this week. Trust chairman Sir Eion Edgar said the Trust celebrated its tenth birthday last year and has approved grants totalling more than $50 million since it was established in 2000. “This is a wonderful achievement which has helped the Trust achieve its vision of making our community a better place to be,” he said. Sir Eion acknowledged the valuable role Pioneer Generation Limited makes to its investment portfolio. Central Lakes Trust is the 100 percent shareholder of Pioneer Generation Limited and receives a dividend each year which helps the Trust to maintain its level of grants to community projects. The Trust’s total assets increased considerably during the past year and are now valued at $335 million.

New chairwoman Sukhi Turner replaced Devon Hotop as chairwoman of the Alpine Community Development Trust last week. The Trust operates Wanaka’s Community Networks. Sukhi Turner is a former mayor of Dunedin and now lives in Wanaka.

Sports facility under discussion Wanaka residents attended a public workshop yesterday evening to discuss facilities for the Wanaka Sports Facility site. An intensive consultation process was underway this week in Wanaka with

conversations being had with numerous user groups. “We have a site (Three Parks) and the consultation we are engaged in now will tell us what is needed on that site,” QLDC spokesperson Ken Gousmett said.

The consultation included a questionnaire, which could be undertaken online at www.qldc.govt or by visiting the council office on Ardmore Street or the Wanaka Library. The first phase of consultation will be completed next

week and the council intends to report the outcome of that process. “Once we have that clear picture we can move on to develop the proposed facilities concept design site plan, which will take us into the second round of consultation

B-net music award winning DJ The Nomad (Daimon Schwalger) is excited about his upcoming gig in Wanaka. Daimon was the first person to release a Drum and Bass album produced in New Zealand in 1998. “I have been playing in Wanaka off and on for the past 14 years at different bars, festivals and events,” Daimon said. “Wanaka is a beautiful place, amazing lakes and mountains. It also has a good local crew, that know how to rock a party and then you get the international travellers: they always change but seem to appreciate good local music,” he said. The Wanaka show will feature his new album Perilous Times and include Daimon’s two main vocalists from Australia. “It makes performing so much more exciting when you have your band with you. It’s an album I’m very proud of so the gigs should be a lot of fun.” Daimon has featured on New Zealand snowboard movies, but he sticks to his passion, music. “I have snowboarded once and almost killed myself on the beginners’ slope,” he said.

crimeline Another wintry week with a dusting of snow boosting the morale of tourists and locals alike. Here is a glimpse into the world of crime within the Wanaka area over the last week: Over night last Friday somebody lit a fire in the public toilet cubicles near the skate park on Dungarvon Street. Unfortunately the toilet was damaged however it was not totally destroyed. Mindless vandalism is a pet hate of mine I hope somebody has some information regarding this. Last Saturday a vehicle travelling on the Cardrona Valley Road has negotiated a corner too fast. This caused the vehicle to cross the centre line clipping a vehicle coming in the opposite direction. Luckily nobody was injured. Police have dealt with a young male who was doing doughnuts on the Eely point reserve grassed area. Diligent work from a local resident lead to the offending driver being located. Please remember if you see some anti-social driving a number plate and a description is gold when it comes to the police enquiry. On Saturday night an intoxicated tourist jumped on the tow bar of a passing ve-

hicle. He was issued a $150 fine for his behaviour. A suspicious male has been reported to have been lurking around the Hunter Crescent area. The male is reported to be very small in stature, he had long dark hair and he was wearing a black beanie. He was also reported to have been carrying a backpack. We are keen to speak with this male. If you have witnessed anybody matching this description and he was acting suspiciously we would be keen to know. A woman’s hand bag has been tampered with in the Mint bar on Brownston Street and $100 in cash was taken from within the bag. This occurred last Saturday night. We are getting lots of reports of jackets and personal property being taken from bars please be vigilant. Use the coat checks and keep your personal belongings with you at all times. Let’s make it hard for these criminals!! For all the people new to the town at the moment please note that there is a liquor ban in the CBD and on the lake front, there is also one in Hawea. Please keep the drinking to your home or in the bars between 22:00 and 08.00.

Excess bio-solids Stock-piled bio-solids at the old wastewater ponds on Ballantyne Road may be hydro-seeded if they cannot be relocated to a landfill. The wastewater ponds became defunct in 2009 when new wastewater plant Project Pure was opened and the bio-solids (wastewater and sewage sludge) were stock-piled. The bio-solids have now been tested at a safe level of e-coli and pathogens. One option for disposal of the bio-solids is to Victoria Flats, in the Gibbston Valley, if consent conditions can be met. The alternative is hydro-seeding the bio-solids where they are to promote grass growth and seal them in.

Young snow stars of the future performed at the Calci Yum Kids Cup at Cardrona Alpine Resort last week. Sixty freestyle skiers and snowboarders, aged between 5 and 12, took to the boxes and kickers in this year’s mini slopestyle event. The day, geared towards fun, encouraged kids to get involved with freestyle snowsports, Cardrona spokesperson Nadia Ellis said. “I have been blown away by all the kids who participated today and I have no doubt we have some future Olympians in the making.” The field was split into three

categories; super groms (5-6 years), rippers (7-9 years) and shredders (1012 years), as well as by gender and disciplines. Sam Christie impressed the judges with his back 540 scoring him first place in the shredders snowboard division. Finn Bilous’ switch 540 gave him top spot for skiing in the same age group. The youngest competitors also put on a good show for the judges with Roman Alty and Rocco Jamieson, both five-years-old, winning first and second place respectively in the super groms snowboard division.

To guy driving Porsche Cayenne like idiot on way to TC. protect your family. May save them and others while you’re at it. Your driving is not heroic. To the Queenstown driver of the silver Porsche cayenne. Please stop the dangerous driving, passing on blind corners etc. We all want to get to TC safely.

An extended weekend in Dunedin has highlighted for me all the joys of home. A three-day visit turned into four days and four nights after a blizzard almost closed the city down and cut off the three exit routes to Wanaka. As entertaining as it was watching University of Otago students frolicking in the snow, including two Cro-Magnon men cavorting barefoot with a rugby ball, it just wasn’t the same as being at home, knowing the snowfall would result in something constructive: an even better base for skiing. A snowfall is always magical, but the after-effect of a snowfall on busy streets doesn’t have the same magic for me as freshly dusted mountains. My enforced stay in Dunedin was also a good reminder that no one is indispensable, as the Wanaka Sun staff calmly and efficiently produced a newspaper without me, while members of the community continued to phone, email and text in ideas for stories. I returned on Tuesday afternoon in time to learn what had been happening around the area since last week: the unusual - petrol panics and Porsche prattishness - and the usual - fundraising, sports events, kids’ activities and more. Thanks everyone for your contribution to this week’s Wanaka Sun.

Anyone know where i can get a 4wd Zimmer frame to get to the new medical centre? residents of Tapley Paddock, you are being wholly unfair on the rowing club. Put your lawyer money to better use, talk is cheap!

Wanaka development 1. Do you remember that children’s book: the story of a little boy who got a fish for his birthday? He was supposed to feed it a bit, but not too much. But he couldn’t resist and fed it a bit and a bit more and far too much! So the fish grew and grew, and he had to put it in a bigger bowl. But it grew some more and had to be placed in the bath...It grew even bigger and filled the whole bath until the fire brigade had to come and carry it to the community swimming pool. But it kept on growing...until all the swimmers got squashed and couldn’t swim any more. In Wanaka we would have to put it into the lake! …or we would make a special place for it called Three Parks. But it would still keep on growing, and growing until none of the local businesses can survive anymore...oh yeah, the fish had a name. It was Greed. How come a 5-year-old child is able to understand this tale but not an adult developer? 2. On the impotence of being “earnless” - Symphony for a swede. $1.79 at New world. Recipe: undress the pathetic looking bugger, skin off and all the green colour bitter stuff. Cut into dices into an oven dish. Coat with olive oil or, if you are a wealthy business man, butter. Sprinkle with whatever herbs you have (thyme, rosemary, caraway, love, etc...). Lid on, or foil if the lid of the pot is broken, in oven for 25 minutes. Grated cheese on top at the last five minutes Serve with rice. Feeds five ...and stop whinging about tomatoes! Jacou Albert Town

To the old man sitting outside the changing rooms at chapter 5 all day every day get a job it’s very creepy. Light up the lake shore? you’re kidding right? Who is going to pay for the lights, their installation and the power to run them? Us, the rate payers. No thanks. our mountain views are stunning enough without cheesy lights. Save that 4 the cities Re Mac Afterparty: Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about. For a start it is not related to, or organised by, the school. Guests are encouraged to enjoy themselves with minimal alcohol levels, thus limits are imposed, and intoxicated students are sent home. It is probably the safest party in wanaka all year. Grow up and open your eyes to the real problems in our society Local tradesmen, waiting for 5 weeks to 5 months for quotes, phone calls not returned, emails not answered. Any wonder locals go out of town! everyone is allowed their say that’s why henly is like it is and wanaka is like it is Hey its not just the food prices that are out of hand. Y r we always paying more 4 our petrol than any other “remote” town n nz? There is no doubt bout it we r all ripped off.

Football round-up Allan Carmichael Wanaka FC had a great start to the season, accruing 16 goals without reply in their first three games. Wanaka felt defeat for the first time losing 5-3 against Queenstown Ministry at Pembroke. The team was plagued

with injuries and setbacks throughout the season, with Joe Suttie returning to England, and the tragic loss of their team mate Graham ‘Stotty’ Stott in a helicopter crash. Defeat to Wakatipu in game five was followed by a great run of three wins against Alexandra, Rovers and Rangers,

which yielded 17 goals and conceded only two. The league was wide open with all the teams taking points off each other. Wanaka could only muster up 12 players in game nine and lost to Galaxy at Jacks Point. Wanaka would win again on two more occasions, against the Develoment squad

The NZ Nordic Sports Development Association (NZNSDA) junior development camp was held over three days last week. Children aged seven to ten had an introduction to biathlon, learned to skate and improved their classic technique. NZNSDA president Ray O’Brien said, “These camps, along with the Wanaka Biathlon club events, are bringing on a whole new generation of Nordic skiers.”

and Alexandra, losing to Ministry, Wakatipu and Rovers on the final game of the season. At the end of season awards, Ian Bell picked up the players’ player of the year, Allan Carmichael got the nod for manager’s player and Will Townsend picked up most improved player.

Junior slopestyle competition Local snowboarders dominated at the Snow Park NZ Junior Slopestyle last week. Wanaka snowboarder Tim Herbert, 14, landed two strong runs in the junior boys’ division to earn a high score of 24.1 from a possible 30. “I had an epic day and the park crew brought together a world class set up,” he said. Ten-year-old Zoi Synnott, from Wanaka, had her second win of the school holidays, winning the girls’ youth division. Thalie Larochaix, 11, from France, came second and Kristal Roberts, 13, from Cromwell placed third. Christchurch talent Carlos Garcia-Knight, 13, placed first in the boys’ youth division, while young French rider Noe Larochaix, 10, won the boys’ grommet division. “Conditions were mint, we couldn’t have asked for a better day,” head judge Mel Simmons said. “It’s a really great event because we were able to reward all age groups for their participation and progression.”
