‘We’ve got nowhere left to turn’

Mike Corkhill breathed a wispy sigh of relief last week as emails, phone calls and bank donations rolled in. They showed that our people cared. The stress and strain of living with a condition that will soon kill him, and leave his five kids without a father, hasn’t made for too many good night sleeps over the past few years. But the support of the community has already given him hope that he will be able to raise the $100,000 needed to get a new set of lungs and a new lease on life. Mike’s story featured in last week’s Waimea Weekly and since then he’s had offers from people to help run a quiz night, free product from businesses for him to raffle off and close to $2000 deposited in a bank account aimed at helping him raise the money before Christmas. But he needs plenty more community support. His children, the youngest just nine, walked up Richmond’s

Queen St last week with a clipping of the Weekly article asking businesses for prizes for a quiz night. Mike says he’s feeling overwhelmed. “It’s been really great and we’ve had a heap of feedback and for the first time in a while I feel like we’re not alone in this.” But the journey has only just begun and Mike says he’s turned to the community because he simply “has nowhere else to go”. “This is my last hope, we’ve spent all our savings on this and we’re really hoping the community can help my family out and help me get the lungs I need to live,” he says. Mike’s eldest daughter Cassie has set up a Givealittle page where people can donate, www.givea Appeal, or you can contact them at

Paddy needs one more record

Richmond vinyl junkie Paddy McMahon has had a one track mind for the last year, constantly wondering when, and sometimes in darker moments even if, he will find the final volume in the 20 Solid Gold Hits series so he can complete his 36 volume collection. It has been a frustrating 12 months for Paddy who started collecting the classic 20 Solid Gold Hits vinyl records “a few years ago”. He made good progress, quickly finding the first 35 volumes but then got stuck on Volume 36. “I’ve looked all over the country for it. I’ve looked in Dunedin, Christchurch, Motueka,

Paddy needs one more record FROM PAGE 1

Takaka, Greymouth, Blenheim and Auckland, but I haven’t had any luck. “Everytime we travel somewhere I’ll pop into the op shops and record stores. I’m not a great shopper - I’ll go to the Richmond Mall once a year - but I’ve been spending hours and hours in shops looking for that record. “Now my wife always takes a book whenever I go into one of the shops because she knows I’ll be in there for a while.” Paddy says he spent so long looking for 20 Solid Gold Hits records at one second-hand yard in Christchurch that the shop keeper forgot he was in there and locked the gates, and left. “There were records galore and I’d found six 20 Solid Gold Hits volumes, but I’d spent so long in there they locked the gates and went

Senior reporter Reporter home. I had to climb over the gates to get out - I was a bit worried that someone would think I was a burglar.” Paddy started collecting the series, which was released from 1973 to 1983, after finding six volumes at the Richmond Recycling Centre. He subsequently purchased the next 29 volumes from op shops, record stores, including Everyman Records in Nelson, and garage sales paying between $1 and $20 per record. Paddy says the records aren’t just for show and he often plays them on his turntable at home. “It’s great music, especially the later volumes because I know most of those songs.

They were playing them at the Ocean Lodge when I was 19 or 20 - they’re real Ocean Lodge songs.” Paddy thought his quest was over earlier this year when he went into a secondhand shop in Dunedin and found a pile of 50 Solid Gold records, but the elusive Volume 36 was missing. “I was so disappointed but I still brought a few that were in good condition so I could replace some of the tattier ones in my collection. But if someone had it and sold it to me, it would make me so happy - it would make my wife happy too.” For the record, 20 Greatest Hits Volume 36 contains some really groovy numbers like Hurt So Bad by John Cougar, Private Eyes by Hall and Oates. Anyone who can help Paddy in his quest to find Volume 36 can phone him on 544 4148.

How good is our region? Wednesday 23 April: Home educator Jill Riddle is still waiting to learn the total amount of money required to repair her property after a truck smashed into the front yard on April 16. She said that, because the crash coincided with the recent floods, the insurance company has been inundated with claims so nothing has actually happened yet. Jill has relocated her children’s play area away from the road and would like to thank her friends, neighbours and the local police and fire services, for their efficiency. Wednesday 23 April: After having a massive tree fall through their home during the recent storm, the Hobbs family are now on track to getting their lives back to normal. The tree crushed Jules Hobbs’ bedroom and that of his daughter, but their house has now been made safe and water tight over the last few weeks. They are living in a long-term rental home until further notice and are beginning to deal with the insurance company and assessors. Jules’s daughter Sofie has had other things on her mind though, after she was picked to be one of the models for the new Gigatown mural. Wednesday 30: Richmond Mall’s Eventful kids holiday activity will definitely be repeated, says Richmond Mall manager Belinda de Clercq. The babysitting program proved very popular with customers, with some suggesting it be done all the time with a gold coin donation. One of the activities Eventful kids did was mother’s day cards which the children will now be able to give their mother’s on Sunday. Eventful kids will not be back next holidays as the mall have already booked other activities, but Belinda says that if they have weeks in between they will definitely do it again.

Tasman District Council wants to find out what you think of our region. The council is conducting its annual survey of residents to ask what ratepayers think of the services the council provides them and the district as a whole. “We have a responsibility to track how effective our services, and the delivery of them are,” says mayor Richard Kempthorne. “The best way to do this is through an independent and impartial interview of

a representative cross-section of people from our district.” Survey company, National Research Bureau (NRB), has been commissioned to undertake the survey by calling 400 Tasman residents. Using a random selection method, residents from across the district will be telephoned and asked their opinions on the services the council provides, and how well it delivers them. The survey is totally confidential and

Flippin’ good way to spend the holidays Far from being bored during the school holidays, a pair of brothers have found a new activity to keep them busy – beach hopping. Coby, 9 and pictured right, and Macca Springer, 11, saw a You Tube clip of people jumping off half-buried swiss balls and decided to give it a go. Their dad Steve made a quick trip to town to buy a ball and then took the boys and their mates to Tahuna beach for go. Soon they were “back-flipping”, “superman-ing” and “double twisting” their way to a new way to keep busy. Their exploits attracted plenty of attention and soon dozens of kids were lining up for a crack. Macca says its great fun. “It’s better than what we thought, you can do what you want and it doesn’t hurt as much.” Coby says he likes doing the flips in the air and that they make up their moves on a trampoline at home before coming to the beach to perfect them.

Property insights Are house prices rising? Have you read in the newspaper that house prices are on the rise? Often these reports are based on the median value of all house sales in a particular region. The median value is the middle value, ie: if you list all the house sales in a month the median value is the value of the sale that falls in the middle of the list.




takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Interviewing for the survey started on Friday, May 2, and is expected to be completed by this Sunday evening, May 11. The results of the survey will be made public and form part of the council’s formal reporting. They will also be a “critical ingredient” in planning for further improvements to the council’s delivery of services, says Richard.

If the statistics show that there has been a drop in the number of sales of lower priced properties, for example from the government’s new rules around the level of deposit required for new-entrant home buyers or from the uncertainty surrounding rising interest rates, the median value will change. The median house value will then be based on a list of house sales consisting of predominantly higher value properties than usual, so the median value will rise but the individual value of

each property may not have increased. In this scenario a more relevant way of showing the average house price variances would be to report on the mean house sale value. The mean value is the average price, ie: the total of all house sale prices for a month divided by the total amount of houses sold.

NEWS in brief SUPERMARKET REZONING APPROVED: The Tasman District Council has approved the rezoning of the former Bay Nurseries site near Three Brothers Corner from residential to commercial for the planned development of a New World supermarket. Foodstuffs South Island general manager of property Roger Davidson says the next step was to apply for resource consent and they planned to do that within the next two months. Thirty-five people made submissions following the proposal’s notification in April last year. MOTHER’S DAY RUN AND WALK: The annual Jennian Homes’ Mother’s Day fun run and walk is being held this Sunday.

Work on a plan to help Nelson and Tasman deal with an increasing number of retired people started yesterday. For decades Nelson has been a popular place to retire and by 2025 around 26 per cent of the population is expected to be retired, putting a huge strain health services. So around 40 organisations that work with retired folk met to discuss a strategic plan. The issue was highlighted last year when Waimea Weekly reported the comments of the medical officer of health, Dr Ed Kiddle, who said the ageing population

sues that will arise along the way. “Ideally, the main objective will be to come up with a realistic plan that will, taking into account what resources are available, measure outcomes and progress on an annual review basis over a predetermined term.” A final draft isn’t expected to be completed for several years though, says Neville, but yesterday’s meeting is an “important first step” in getting all the parties together and thinking about how best to deal with the increasing number of retired people over the next decade or two.

Motupiko’s ladies on song

A group of musical ladies from the Tapawera district are delighted with their debut “on a real stage” and are already looking forward to their next big performance. The Motupiko Ladies’ Singing Group was formed five years ago and started performing in front of family and friends in the former Motupiko Hall which is the home of the group’s musical director Giles Panting. Late last month they graduated to the big time, performing their Autumn Recital in front of about 100 people at The Suter Theatre in Nelson and Giles says the recital was a big hit. “Our first recital was in the Motupiko Hall for family and a few friends and then we moved into the Motupiko Church, and on to the Shedwood Hall last year when we outgrew the church. The move to The Suter was part of my overall plan of pushing people out of their comfort zones, widening all our horizons and aiming for the best we can possibly achieve. “The Suter has such good lighting and acoustics, and the ladies sang really, really well. It was

such a big occasion for them to perform on a real stage in a real theatre.” Giles says the group was supported by the Tasman Brass Ensemble which performed an entertaining middle section at The Suter. The group also includes pianist Adrienne Baigent who was “absolutely fantastic” on the night. Giles says the group’s 20 members come from all over the Tapawera District and sing every Monday at his home. Although many of them had not sung in a group before and only about half of them read music, they are singing in four-part harmony for most of their repertoire. However, Giles says the ladies have also made progress in other facets of country life since joining the group. “One of the most inspiring things about the group, apart from their musical achievements, is how they have formed close friendships and support networks through belonging to the group. That’s so important for new people to the rural area as well as established locals.”

Local man plays key strings in orchestra The Nelson Symphony Orchestra delighted the ears of Nelsonians when they performed at the Cathedral on Saturday evening. The concert was named ‘H’ because it featured the music of composers Humperdinck, Hummel, Handel and Haydn, and featured solos by two international performers, Alan K Gray and Raffaele Bandoli.

He was playing with another local group, the Greenhill Orchestra, when he was asked to perform with the Symphony Orchestra after they needed a viola player for a concert. With a passion for classical music he came to be a permanent member of the group.

into it. Jan says he has plenty of musical inspiration but the Nelson Symphony Orchestra’s concert master is one of his main influences. “One of the ones who still amazes me is John Thomson our concert master. I sit opposite to him and I’m always amazed at how well he can play and how easy it is for him to play.” Jan will continue to be a member of the Nelson Symphony Orchestra for the foreseeable future. “I see myself staying with the orchestra for some time yet. I think, while they’ll still have me, I’ll be quite happy to stick around. They’re a good bunch of people and they’re all keen on music. We have good social times between rehearsals.” The performance was one of five that the Nelson Symphony Orchestra perform every year, with approximately 300 people turning up to enjoy the classical music performed by its 46 orchestra members.

Airforce sets up camp in Nelson

For advertising that really works!

For ten days the airfield at Nelson Airport will be home to 80-120 Royal New Zealand Air Force personnel from Base Ohakea, as they deploy for Exercise Wiseowl. Exercise Wiseowl is a Pilot Training Squadron deployment, designed to test military student pilots in elements of military flying, including low level flight, navigation, formation flying and deployed operations. The exercise provides student pilots with a taste of what it’s like working away from their home base Ohakea, and in field conditions for the first time. Six Airtrainers will be deployed to Nelson for the exercise, with other fixed wing and rotary aircraft deployed for short periods. Squadron leader Tim Costley is looking forward to the two weeks in Nelson and says the location provides an ideal training ground for

These will provide for field catering, a field medical facility, an administration unit, an operations headquarters, a logistics unit providing camp supplies and spares, as well as a maintenance centre for the aircraft. Apart from its operational tasking, Exercise Wiseowl is a chance for schools, organisations, and the general public, to visit the camp to meet Air Force personnel and find out more about the Air Force. The camp will be open to the public on Saturday 10 May between 10.30am and 2pm.

The Evolution of NBS

Nelson Building Society has a heritage, culture and ethos that remains unique, and of course, built on the solid foundation of mutuality. Life has changed quite dramatically since the late 19th Century, but despite the increasingly complex regulatory environment and the recent global financial crisis, at NBS we have remained solid, stable and dependable – committed to our customers and the community, and faithful to our mutual heritage.

This week on our Nelson Police Facebook page we sent out a message offering a giveaway, which was a key ring that also measures the amount of tread on your car’s tyres. Within about an hour we had to take the post down, because we had been inundated with people wanting the tyre tread key ring and it was going to become a logistical nightmare to post so many out. We had requests from all over New Zealand and overseas as well. I’m thrilled by the response and that so many people wanted the key ring, and more importantly that they wanted to check the amount of tread on their car tyres. We’ve since had lots of messages of thanks back from those who have already received the keyrings, which we really appreciate. Your tyres are probably the most important, and most often overlooked, road safety issue. All too often when we attend motor vehicle crashes, the vehicle inspection reveals that the tyres were not up to standard and most likely contributed to the crash. Checking your tread is easy to do and it could save your life. With the changes to the rules around Warrants of Fitness, it’s more important than ever that drivers take personal responsibility for the state of their vehicle. If you missed out on the Facebook giveaway don’t worry. We’ve got plenty of the key rings left and you’re welcome to go to the Nelson, Richmond or Motueka Police Station and pick one up. Our Highway staff will also have them to give out in the course of their work. Winter’s around the corner folks, so now’s a really good time to make sure your vehicle is safe to be on the road.

We understand that life is about much more than money. But we also know that money needs to be managed well for life to be lived to the full. We focus on getting to know our customers so we can anticipate their needs, often before they do. That way we can be sure that we have products and services to match what life brings. Whilst this may represent a significant challenge at times, we’ve got an advantage, we’ve been doing this for over 150 years – constantly evolving, and constantly aware of the changes and important events in our customers’ lives. So we’re a lot more than a friendly face, we’re experts, on a serious mission to deliver the competitive products and services our customers need.

Fast-forward to the year 2000

Strategically from the year 2000 Nelson Building Society changed, from simply a loans and savings organisation with two Branches (Nelson and Richmond) to a full-service community banking alternative offering banking products and services to both personal and small business clients across a network of eight branches. Banking software platform changed - allowing the introduction of New Zealand Standard Bank Accounts, Cheque Books and Internet Banking

Second-hand sale for ski bunnies Skiers and snowboarders still have an opportunity to pick up a bargain when the Rainbow Sports Club holds its annual sale this Saturday after a late change of venue to Hampden Street School Hall. The annual sale is usually held at Nelson College but was transferred to Hampden Street School earlier this week after the college closed its hall due to earthquake risks. Organisers say the sale gives skiers and

snowboarders a chance to buy affordable second-hand or near new gear as well as sell their used equipment. It is also an opportunity to purchase the club’s membership passes at pre-season rates and multiday passes. “The sale really is an excellent way for people starting out in snow sports, or for those who want to upgrade their gear to get it all at great prices in one place,” club chairman and event organiser Jo Rainey says.

Jo says sellers need to bring their gear to the hall on Friday between 6pm and 8pm or Saturday between 8.30am and 10.30am. Sellers need to provide their name and price and all gear needs to be clean with a description of the item for potential buyers. Sellers can bring a wide range of skiing and boarding equipment as well as accessories like roof racks and snow chains. Chains needed to be labelled with their tyre size. “Anything related to snow sports

and we will put them out for you to sell,” Jo says. The sale will also feature an extensive range of quality ex-rental stock from Europe and new and used clothing. Jo says the sale is a fundraiser for the club which retains 20 per cent commission including GST with all proceeds going to club projects and field maintenance. The sale opens at 11am on Saturday and finishes at 5pm.

Scout leaders revive building A derelict woolshed in the Wairoa Gorge south of Nelson has been transformed into a newlook lodge for Scout groups thanks to a dedicated group of Scout leaders from around the Nelson-Tasman region. The old farm woolshed was initially used by Nelson Girls Brigade for camps in the 1960s and later became a popular camp for Scout groups throughout the region. However, the camp’s days appeared numbered when the Scouts couldn’t afford to pay insurance on the woolshed and the Department of Conservation, announced it planned to condemn the building. That’s when Nayland Avion Scout group’s leader, the late Stan Gilbert, stepped in and persuaded DOC to let the Scouts renovate the building and use it as their camp. DOC agreed and Stan and a dedicated band of Scout lead-

ers got together and started the long process of repairing the rundown building. “Stan was the driving force behind the project and we all got together to make it happen,” Enner Glen Scout leader Rob Pollock says. “We have one or two big working bees a year and some other smaller ones and we’ve been working on it for seven or eight years.” Rob says the group of Scout leaders has reclad the rotting exterior of the woolshed and relined the interior and installed insulation. They have also constructed outside toilets, cleared the land around the lodge and last weekend put on a new roof. Rob says Gilbert Lodge is ideally situated for Scout camps with the Wairoa River running

past the camp and lots of bush tracks nearby. He jokes that it is also strategically placed to be out of cellphone reception. “The kids love it. We have a Founder’s Camp up here every year now and last year we had close to 300 Scouts - they do river crossings, abseiling, bush walks and we even made a big mud slide” Group member Peter De Jong says the building has been named Gilbert Lodge in honour of Stan and was officially reopened at a ceremony, attended by Stan’s wife June, on February 23 last year. Peter says the project has been supported by generous grants from the Canterbury Community Trust and Lion Foundation. Businesses from around the region have also helped out supplying materials for the rebuild. Peter says anyone interested in supporting the project can phone him on 541 0380.

It’s been five years since Julie and Wayne Bensemann made the decision to rebrand their Spring Grove garage business to South Fuels Spring Grove. Their busy workshop and service station looks after a range of people from locals to loggers and the Rural Fire Network. They are proud to be able to maintain competitive fuel prices, having done so successfully for five years now which has been both a challenge and an opportunity within their business says Julie.

Just a thought... By David McBride, Richmond Baptist Church A story is told about Fiorello LaGuardia, who, when he was mayor of New York City during the worst days of the Great Depression and all of World War II, was called “the Little Flower” by adoring New Yorkers because he was only five foot four and always wore a carnation in his lapel. He was a colourful character who used to ride the New York City fire trucks, raid speakeasies with the police department, take entire orphanages to baseball games, and whenever the New York newspapers were on strike, he would go on the radio and read the Sunday funnies to the kids. One bitterly cold night in January of 1935, the mayor turned up at a night court that served the poorest ward of the city. LaGuardia dismissed the judge for the evening and took over the bench himself. Within a few minutes, a tattered old woman was brought before him, charged with stealing a loaf of

bread. She told LaGuardia that her daughter’s husband had deserted her, her daughter was sick, and her two grandchildren were starving. But the shopkeeper from whom the bread was stolen, refused to drop the charges. “It’s a bad neighbourhood, Your Honour,” the man told the mayor. “She’s got to be punished to teach other people around here a lesson.” LaGuardia sighed. He turned to the woman and said, “I’ve got to punish you. The law makes no exceptions – ten dollars or ten days in jail.” But even as he pronounced the sentence, the mayor was already reaching into his pocket. He extracted a bill and tossed it into his famous sombrero, saying, “Here is the ten dollar fine, which I now remit; and furthermore I am going to fine everyone in this courtroom fifty cents for living in a town where a person has to steal bread so that her grandchildren can eat. Mr Bailiff, collect the fines and give them to the defendant.” So the following day the New York City newspapers reported that $47.50 was turned over to a bewildered old lady who had stolen a loaf of bread to feed her starving grandchildren, fifty cents of that amount being contributed by Time to tidy the garden the red-faced grocery store owner, while some seventy petty criminals, people with traffic violations, and New York City policemen, each of whom had just paid fifty cents for the privilege of doing so, gave the mayor a standing ovation.

It has been said many times before: “A bad farmer curses the weather, a good farmer makes use of it”. The same thing can be said of gardeners. Now I don’t claim to be a good gardener, and quite often not even an average one, but this week I tried for the ‘good’ stakes. I paid attention to the weather forecasters. A wet week is predicted for the coming days and I have paid attention to that. I have just come inside, having spent an enjoyable and productive afternoon in the garden. Spring onions have been planted, along with beetroot with glorious rich red foliage. The label tells all who care to read, that this beautiful foliage is an added attraction to soups, and makes a colourful addition to salads and stir-fries. Which makes me excited, so a sowing was also made of sugar snap peas, and snow peas. Both of these varieties can be sown from early winter to early spring. But that ain’t all! Before Easter, I planted some perpetual spinach. This week, I managed to harvest a small number of leaves to add to a meal. It’s a lovely feeling, that. So today, in went some more spinach, along with another planting of silverbeet. The day was just right for this sort of activity, with a gentle feeling in the air that the rains will surely come. A liberal handful or two of sheep pellets was dug in and this time I added a sprinkling of sugar to the mix. Yes, that is right! I had read recently that a touch of sugar helps establish a strong root system, so thought

I would give it a go. A sprinkling of Neem Tree granules was a final addition to the recipe. Shortly I will plant caulis, cabbage [for a nice late winter coleslaw] and broccoli, now that the white butterflies are not so prominent. But just in case they should come flying by, I have a container of Neem Tree oil to spray on the plants to keep the pests at bay. So, what if you have already done all this winter preparation in the vege department. Now you can turn your attention to your ornamental garden. Do take a look at the new stocks of Rhododendrons, on display now, and while you are about it turn you attention to the evergreen Azaleas which are showing colour now. Many varieties of Pieris are budding up nicely, and the Michelias are showing velvety black buds in preparation for spring. It is exciting to look forward to the coming months. Don’t go about doing a hissy fit because we are heading into some winter weather. Look at it this way. May is here now, and it’s not too bad so far. Next will come June and July, and if you translate that into weeks it only adds up to eight. Next we will be heading into August and I bet there will be a few lambs on the scene by then! So enjoy now! • Make a sowing of sugar snap and snow peas. • Dig in the above peas after harvest, to add extra nitrogen to the soil. • Don’t forget to sow or plant Broad Beans now.

Kids ready for winter sport

More than 4500 kids will take to the sports fields, courts and turfs of Nelson and Tasman this week, as junior winter sport kicks off. Most junior sports start this Saturday, so Waimea Weekly asked each of the major sporting codes in Nelson and Tasman for the number of registered players aged between 5 and 13. Those registrations show football will be the most played sport in the region, although it is neck-and-neck with rugby, both with around 1350 players in that age group. Netball is the third most popular with just under 1000 players, followed by basketball, hockey and tennis. Nelson Bays Football general manager, Clive Beaumont, says the number of kids playing football has been increasing over the past ten years and he’s thrilled to see another

791 791 Netball’s ‘exciting’ 0800 season opener

Chelsea Routhan had a fair idea that running netball in Nelson would be a busy job, but even she couldn’t have predicted how fullon the start of the season would be. This Thursday night the premier grade teams have a pre-season game, before 2500 players take to the Saxton Field courts on Saturday for their first game of the season. The very next day, Nelson Netball hosts the Canterbury Tactix in an ANZ Netball Championship game at Saxton Stadium. “It’s definitely going to be full-on,” says Chelsea. “But it’s exciting.” Chelsea was appointed as manager for Nelson Netball at the start of the year and has been focussed on this weekend since. The start of the season is always a huge event for the governing body but throw in an ANZ Championship game and it makes it even bigger. But Chelsea says she’s more excited than nervous. “It’s a big challenge and this job has been a huge learning curve for me, not so much what I’m doing but the quantity of it. But we have great support from community volunteers and it’s really neat to have people there backing you up and supporting you.” Netball is one of the highest participation sports in Nelson and having the entire code played in one area of Saxton Field creates a huge “buzz” and excitement. Chelsea says that is a huge asset for netball and the sport is in a great health, with player numbers on the rise

Waimea Old Boys RFC

Waimea Old Boys Rugby

Wanderers rematch the clash of the season Waimea Old Boys seniors’ attacking game was at its very best last round when they scored 80 points against Blenheim side Central, but coach Mark Milne believes it will be their defence which will be critical this Saturday when they play Wanderers at Brightwater. The return of star fullback Marty Banks, released from Super 15 side the Hurricanes for last week’s game, sparked a 12-try demolition of Central. New centre Sam Franklin and first five Connor Trathen were also in top form in the backs, but Mark says the

Simon Bloomberg

Senior reporter Reporter fact that they conceded 38 points is a concern. “It was a little surprising to put 80 points on any team but we do have the ability to do that. Our attack has been good at times and having a quality player like Marty Banks helped spark that attack. “We weren’t too happy about our defence but that sometimes happens when you score so many points as

you can lose that urgency. We have to give Central some credit as well because they were very good close to the line and around the fringes. “But we will have to tighten-up on defence against a side like Wanderers. That has been our focus this week.” Mark says Wanderers are a top side and Saturday’s game “will give us a good measure of where we are at”. The last time the two teams clashed, Wanderers won narrowly 17-12 and Mark says they are keen to reverse that result. The game kicks off at 3pm.

Coppins wins motocross trophy

The tenth running of the Top of the South VMX club’s Morley Motorcycle and Marine Ray Anderson Memorial and Club Champs, was held at Tadmor last week. About 60 riders turned up for the event which was raced under blue skies and on excellent track conditions. Former World Motocross GP star Josh Coppins was the guest rider, with a Cheney 350 supplied by Tony Brown of Christchurch. The Ray Anderson Memorial trophy is drawn at the start of the day and this year it was the Open 4 stroke class to race for it. Josh was showing smooth and fast lines to win all three races to take the trophy which was fitting as Ray Anderson was at the events that Josh did when he was at the start of his motocross career, with Ben Alexander second and Ross Duncan third. Josh also dominated the Pre

75 races to win the Club Champs in that class, which shows the class of Josh as it was the first time he had ridden that bike. Rob Selby from Christchurch was second with Paul Baker from Blenheim in third. The juniors battled hard with some good racing between Keegan Anglesey and Seb Wardle swapping the lead all day long but Keegan came out on top with five wins from six with Seb getting one win and five seconds, to go one and two. The Basalaj brothers Flynn and Bailey battled for the next spot, with Flynn getting the better result in the last race for third. This year the Tapawera Hotel donated a trophy for the Overall club champ, which was won by Ross Troughton, with Mike Fodie second and Keegan Anglesey third. The Anglesey family ran a BBQ for the club with the Phone 544 8387
