Shirley McFadyen, Brightwater. “It would be quite a cool idea and something extra to do down there.”

Ray Pengelly, Richmond. “Personally I think it might be in the wrong place. You associate Tahuna with summer type things but I think it’s good for the area overall.”

Cyclist says youth clean FROM PAGE 1 his career. But the former Waimea College mountain biker, who was only nine years old when Lance Armstrong first won the Tour de France, says the sport has already moved beyond doping and anyone caught is now exiled by the rest of the peloton. In fact, George is just happy he was born in 1990 and not ten years earlier otherwise he could have been cycling when the sport was in its darkest stage. “I think it’s a great time to be a young cyclist. I think the sport is almost there. I can’t really comment or judge anyone from that previous generation because I wasn’t there but it sounded like there were problems,” says George. “In my time I have never come across any doping and everything that is coming up happened a long time ago. I’d be naïve to think it’s 100 per cent clean but we’re all getting dragged under the same bus at the moment and it wears pretty thin.”

The whereabouts program affects every professional cyclist. George has to notify drug testing authorities of his whereabouts 365 days of the year. “If I went out camping I’d have to let them know, give them GPS coordinates or something.” He says while it is inconvenient, he is happy the system is in place. “Collectively, the whole mindset and attitude has changed. If a rider goes positive for EPO, the rest of the peloton is just so furious. Hopefully once this is all over people will see cycling for the incredible sport that it is.” Back in Nelson for three weeks, George says his next goal is to race on one of the three grand tours with his sights set firmly on the Giro d’Italia in May. He also hopes to be one of the New Zealand riders at what could be a potentially hilly Rio de Janeiro course at the 2016 Olympic Games. “Hills are what I do best and my time trails are improving a lot. If you put them together it makes a pretty good tour rider because that’s where the splits are made.”

Four tonnes of rubbish collected More than 4.5 tonnes of rubbish was picked up off Nelson and Tasman beaches on Saturday, with local businesses, clubs and families pitching in to clean up the region’s foreshore. Around 600 people took part in the spring clean, which spanned across 51 different beaches from Cable Bay to Marahau. While the amount picked up was an improvement on last years 6.5 tonnes

there was still a huge amount of rubbish picked up by the groups, says coordinator Janice Gravett. Bob Irvine and Pauline Farley from Dry Crust have participated in all three of the nowannual clean ups and say although they thought there was a lot less rubbish than last year, there was a large amount of plastics found, made up of supermarket bags and glad wrap. Pauline says they take part each

year to raise awareness of the impact rubbish has on the environment. “I have seen birds get their heads stuck in plastic and swallowing plastic so I think it’s important that we stop littering and take responsibility for what ends up on our shoreline,” she says. The Big Beach Clean Up is organised in partnership with the Department of Conservation, Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council, and Nelmac, with a rubbish drop off station manned by staff at Tahuna Beach. Conservation ranger Theo Chapman says it can be disheartening to see rubbish dropped on a daily basis and commends the initiative that sees the community take an active role in caring for the environment. “We’ve got a beautiful coastline and this event encourages people to get involved in looking after it.” The Maitahi Outrigger Canoe Club travelled to Haulashore Island by Waka Ama and picked up 15 bags of rubbish from the shores, most of which Pete Bywater says was bottles and tins. Across the region a collection of strange items were found, including bits of car, an old mattress and a bottle of marijuana.

Ice rink here before Christmas Ice skating on Christmas Eve is usually reserved for those some distance north of the equator – not this year. Work on bringing a full-sized ice rink to Tahunanui this summer is on track and will open to the public in time for Christmas. Christchurch-based company Ice World has seven portable ice rinks in New Zealand and Australia and is bringing one to Nelson over the Christmas period, hop-

ing to cash in on the extra holiday makers in the city. Extra power for the rinks will begin to be worked on within the next fortnight, says Ice World’s managing director Gareth Webber and construction on the rink will begin just four days before its grand opening on December 15. He says they are unsure how long it will be in Nelson as it will be due to demand.

“If we’re getting good support then we will stay longer so we can’t really say at this stage when we will be pulling it out of Nelson.” Gareth says if the venture to Tahunanui is successful then they would “definitely consider” bringing it back next summer. The rinks are 525 square metres and have a giant marquee erected above them to stop the ice from melting in direct sunlight. The

rink that will come to Nelson is currently in Christchurch’s Hagley Park. The rink is like a big car radiator, says Gareth. It’s a series of aluminium piping that covers the entire surface of the ground, antifreeze is then pumped through the pipes and water poured over top. The pipes get really cold and that freezes the water and it’s kept cold by a 600 kilowatt refrigeration unit.

Santa comes to town Santa Claus is coming to town on Sunday for the annual Pak ‘n’ Save Santa Parade. Floats were open to more of the general public this year and organisers are hoping to see an increase in participation numbers. “I think this year there is definitely a lot more local float entries and local entertainers, you know. More people from the Tasman region,” says Kim Quint of Richmond Unlimited. “A lot of those

are groups that have never been involved before which is nice to see people wanting to be a part of the biggest Christmas event in our area. This is such a wonderful area and we need people to get out there and celebrate it.” The parade will go on its usual route down Queen St and into Sundial Square. It begins at 12noon on Sunday. There will be prizes up for grabs for the best float.

Flood damage still lingers Phillip Rollo Aniseed Valley residents can only come and go in ten minute time slots as the clean up from December’s flooding continues. Work was finally being completed on a slip on Aniseed Valley Rd and full access is expected to return in two weeks time. The area being worked on, near the top of the hill, is restricted to one lane only. However, during work hours that lane is taken up by the contractors that are bringing the slip on the second lane level with the first. Tasman District Council communications manager Chris Choat says the fact the work is

only being completed now highlights the impact December’s flooding had on the region. “There was still movement there and we had to work out what we were going to do to prevent that and then go through the consenting process,” he says. “It’s quite a complex engineering exercise.” Aniseed Valley Rd was closed for more than a month after last year’s flooding due to severe landslides. “Recovery work is still going on throughout the district and one of our key focuses on this particular case is that people do actually live up this road. It’s not just about holiday-makers. They’ve dealt for a year with the short-term solution and now this will be the long-term solution.”

YOUTH CANDIDATE WANTED: The Richmond Lions Club are looking for a suitable person over the age of 18 years old for an Outward Bound course at Anakiwa for next year. There are various courses available and the successful person would need to pay for one third of the cost (but have time to fundraise torwards this as they choose the date). To enquire about the details please contact Lawrence on 547 5817 or Alison on 544 2505. COURT DATE SET: The High Court in Wellington has agreed to hear on Tuesday November 27, Salisbury School’s judicial review of the Minister of Education’s decision to close the school. Since Court proceedings were filed in the High Court in Wellington, the Minister of Education, the Hon Hekia Parata has agreed to take no further steps to close Salisbury School, pending determination of the proceedings. This decision by the minister not to gazette the closure means that Salisbury no longer has to ask the court for an interim order, requiring ministry officials to take no further steps to either shift the girls or to close the school in December. Salisbury has advised parents that they now have the choice to either work with the Ministry of Education to develop a wrap-around programme for their daughter for next year, or they can wait for the outcome of the judicial review before making important decisions about their child’s future.

$2000 cash. Richmond Mall manager David Hill says the competition is an integral part of the way Richmond promotes itself over the Christmas period. “If you shop in Richmond you have a great chance of taking home $5000 cash – how good would that be in the lead up to Christmas?” he says. “Every store in the mall is participating and it was only two years ago that Guyton’s sold the winning ticket. It’s great to be associated with the only locally-owned newspapers in the region too.” Check out page 7 of the Waimea Weekly for a full list of participating businesses.

Stores dress up windows Retailers within the Richmond CBD will begin decorating their windows in a Christmas theme over the next few days, and Just Incredible on Queen St made sure they were one of the first. Stores are encouraged to decorate their windows by Richmond Unlimited, who has offered cash prizes for the best business window. Kim Quint of Richmond Unlimited was hoping businesses could have them up in time for the Pak ‘n’ Save Santa Parade on Sunday. “Other cities make it that real festive feel and I don’t think Queen St has done that in the past,” she says.

Spacious lounge, dining, conservatory, kitchen, plus three bedrooms, master with ensite and family bathroom are on the upper level. Ground floor contains rumpus/ 4th bedroom/ teenagers retreat and good garaging. Located close to Richmond Central with our popular Barnicoat walking track close by.

Olympic heroes help raise cash Andrew Board Olympic champions, a former Wallaby great and 430 Nelsonians helped raise a staggering $40,000 for the Haven Sports Trust last Friday night. The annual dinner was the first dinner function to be held at the brand new conference centre at the Rutherford Hotel and organiser Jeff Rackley says he was extremely happy with the night. “I thought the speakers were excellent and just bloody good people. The number of photographs I think the rowers appeared in is testament to how popular they were and Phil Kearns was just a lovely bloke.” MC John McBeth entertained the crowd and helped set the tone for former Wallaby hooker, turned rugby commentator, Phil Kearns who told tales of his infamous encounters with All Black hooker Sean Fitzpatrick. Olympic rowing champions Hamish Bond and Eric Murray were then interviewed by McBeth and the duo had the crowd in fits of laughter and

were happy to mix and mingle with guests. Hamish told the crowd that he’d worked out how many practice strokes went into preparing for the Olympic final. “Over the four years we trained for it, we did 15,000 practice strokes for each stroke in the final. So the lead off stroke was practiced 15,000 times, etc.” There were also plenty of jokes directed towards Eric’s upcoming fight with Warriors rugby league star Manu Vatuvei in the Fight for Life. Jeff says it’s a heck of a lot of work to put together but he’s happy the people of Nelson continue to support it. “We had a trip to the Chatham Islands that went for $6250 and Outward Bound went for $5000 and $2900 for Brian Strong’s painting, which is really good.” The dinner is the major fundraiser for the trust, which also has four benefactors, Golden Edge, NBS, Rzoska Engineering Electrical Solutions and WHK.

Dux gets dunked on last day Sinead Ogilvie Waimea College senior students celebrated the end of the school year with their annual ‘dunking of the dux’ last Wednesday. Parents, teachers, and students attended the senior prize giving and celebrated the academic achievements of students across all subjects, with Annelise Brown, 18, taking home the top prize after being named dux at the ceremony. Living up to over 20 years of tradition, Annelise was lifted into the arms of her

peers and thrown into the pool, a tradition which principal Larry Ching calls a light-hearted and fun way to finish off the school year. While the award recognizes excellence in academic studies, Larry likens the dunking to a show of support and camaraderie between fellow students and their dux. “It’s their way of recognising her achievements and saying ‘good on you, we’re proud, and hey you’re also one of us’.” Larry says Annelise was a dedicated student and commended her hard work.

“She thoroughly deserved the award, she’s an outstanding academic student who’s managed to be fully engaged in the wider school community too.” Annelise says it was rewarding to be named as dux for her school, and says the standing ovation she received during the ceremony was an amazing show of support. Not one to be afraid of being thrown in the deep end, Annelise has ambitions to study medicine, and will begin health science studies at Otago University next year.

Dr Seuss with a twist Lewis Greenwood, Jack Kininmonth, Georgie Webber, Annalise Ramsay, Greta Clark and Josh Dabinette will lead the Hope School production.

Hope School’s entire school roll will take part in this week’s production – including all of its staff. The storyline will be based around Dr Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham but with an added twist, says organiser Janie Hall. “It’s like a Dr Seuss medley really. One of our parents put it together,” she says. “It’s not a traditional Dr Seuss story though, we have changed a couple of things and adapted it for our needs.” The main performance will be held on

Local volunteers build more homes Just weeks after one group of Nelsonians return from building houses in Sri Lanka, another group is preparing for its own adventure with Habitat for Humanity – this time to Cambodia. In March next year 50 New Zealand volunteers, led by local builder Rob Silcock, will head to the city of Battambang where they will join with locals to build houses for families who live in substandard housing. Among the group will be 20 people from Nelson, who will be led by Hayden Campbell who has already done one Habitat build to Nepal and he says he’d love to hear from anyone keen to be involved. “The Habitat build in Nepal was one of the greatest, most rewarding experiences of my life. Ever since then Rob and I have talked about doing another build together so when the opportunity to build in Cambodia came up we knew we had to do it as well as to take as many Nelsonians on

the journey with us as we can.” The build is part of Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village campaign. The cost for the travel, accommodation and build section of the trip will be $4800, however as Rob points out this is because the fee also covers a charitable donation to Cambodia. The trip is not all work and no play, as the build lasts for five days and all volunteers have the option to stay on for a further seven days and be part of Rob’s unique Cambodia Travel Adventure. For further information, please contact Hayden on, 021 435 530, or Rob on or 021 221 8978. Hayden also filmed a 30 minute documentary on the 2010 Habitat Nepal build. It can be viewed on YouTube at or by searching YouTube for Habitat for Humanity Everest Build Documentary.

Pet day was the cat’s pyjamas, or rather the goat’s, at Appleby School last Friday. Pupils from every classroom brought along their animals to the annual event to perform agility displays, socialise and compete for the title of best dressed. Cats and rabbits were marched around on leashes, hens were ruffling feathers, dogs, calves, goats, a horse and even pet rocks fronted up for the day. Claire Harvey, 8, brought along her pet goat Benny who donned his best pyjamas, and Helena Barrett, 8, went the extra mile dressing as a policewoman to compliment her dog Taz’s outfit. Students proudly took their animals through hoops, over a see-saw and through tunnels during the agility display. The event is a highlight on the school calendar with the children looking forward to sharing their special family members with one another says principal Graham Avery. “As a country school, caring for animals is a big part of our student’s lives. Pet Day is an opportunity for them to share their pets and learn about other animals.” The students spent the first half of pet day talking about the smaller animals that had been brought along such as mice, guinea pigs, cats, fish and even a spider, and learning about the different needs of each. Groups then toured the larger animals outside. “Pet Day is a long standing tradition at Appleby School,” says Graham. “This year we had a large range of animals onsite, all of whom were very wellbehaved, so the day went off without a hitch.”

Yours sincerely, Prince Charles

Phillip Rollo

The disappointment of not being invited to share their birthdays with Prince Charles didn’t last long for two Richmond sales consultants. Conly Zimmerman and Ana Stevenson, who both share an office and the same birth date, were sent a birthAna Stevenson and Conly Zimmerman show off their day card from the Prince of Wales on Monday morning. birthday cards from Prince Charles.

The pair applied to share a birthday luncheon on Wednesday but were turned down. Wakefield farmer John Levy will attend. “When he got his letter of decline he pretended it was an acceptance one,” Ana says. The two had even decided who would go with them if they had won. But they say the birthday card makes up for being declined. “Absolutely. I thought someone had pulled out and I was

Just a thought...

The end is near! See the signs! Not the end of the world, mind you, but the end of the year (sorry, Mayans). Businesses are putting up Christmas decorations early, students are stressing over exams, and groups are busy organising functions. For many people it’s a time of transition. Some are re-evaluating their life and are preparing to make major life changes such as shifting towns or changing jobs. For many college leavers this is a time that brings both excitement and nervousness. The reality that this is the end of an era is sinking in. No more school uniforms, enforced hat wearing, and assemblies (although you quickly learn that these are replaced with work uniforms, enforced name badge wearing, and staff meetings). More importantly, the peer group you have been with for anywhere between

one to thirteen years is disbanding to go their separate ways to various universities or to join the workforce. Some of these people you will stay in contact with, some you may never see again. Yes an era has ended. I’m reminded of Christ’s disciples during his final days. One can imagine their sickening fear after Jesus was arrested. Their world was caving in around them. After all, many of them had literally walked off their jobs to follow Jesus soon after meeting him. And now the man they had devoted three years of their life to following, who they trusted to teach and lead them, had now been arrested and was to be led away like a lamb to the slaughter. To the disciples the end of an era was at hand. However, the new era was marked by the resurrection of Christ and his appearance to the disciples. He goes through

the scriptures with them and explains how all of this had been predicted. It finally all made sense to the disciples. And then he reminds them that the Holy Spirit will guide them. The end of an era Micah Did-Dell, isn’t necessarily a Holy Trinity bad thing. College Church. leavers will make new friends and learn valuable life skills. Those who are changing jobs may find it is just what they need (as they say, a change is just as good as a holiday). And my youth group will be receiving a new group of intermediate students who are finally old enough to join. In the end, it is through change that we grow as people.

actually going. But I think it’s pretty special. Don’t you?” says Conly. “They really go full hog.” Growing up, both Conly and Ana knew they shared the same birthday as Prince Charles. Conly says his mother used to joke that he had royal blood. “The flag flies on his birthday so I used to say the flag flies for my birthday. He’s one year older than me though and a few years older than Ana.”

No rest for wounded Tigers Phillip Rollo The Nelson Tigers management were always going to make changes for the Carter Cup in Wellington but they certainly didn’t plan for the two injuries picked up over the weekend. Having been left battered and bruised with only two drivers able to finish the race, manager Daryl Peterson says there isn’t much the Tigers can take out of Saturday’s Challenge Cup loss to the Palmerston North Panthers. Carey Harwood has suffered a broken elbow and injured both his ribs and ankle after he was knocked out with his foot firmly on the accelerator, charging down the track in the wrong direction. He crashed into the back of Nelson Tiger Blair Cunningham’s car, injuring his team-mate in the process. That left Scott Miers and Peter Bengston of Palmerston North to claim a one-two finish, leaving Shane Harwood to settle for

third place. Palmy’s Shane Penn and Peter Rees were the next to cross the finish line with Nelson’s Jared Gray coming home in fifth, having led the race in the first lap. Daryl says it was disappointing to hand the trophy back over to the Panthers due to the unforeseen circumstances. “These accidents happen and it’s not nice to see,” he says. “We’ve got our new guys in the team now. But you can’t really take anything out of that race. It was also over in two laps.” The Tigers were hoping to use the first three of the scheduled four races as trials ahead of February’s New Zealand Teams Championship. Former 1NZ Dale Ewers and Brett Nicholls will replace the injured duo. The Wellington Wildcats are a bit of an unknown for Tigers management, who say they are a team of experienced stockcar racers that have made the step up to superstocks. The return leg will be held on Nelson Tigers captain Jared Gray get cut off by a Panther driver during the teams race December 8 in Nelson. on Saturday night. Photo: Andrew Board.

Fishing with

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club

Locals pipped by Aussie axemen A team of South Island axemen – including half with Nelson ties – was chopped down by an impressive New South Wales team at the first ever Speight’s Ale House Wood Chop on Sunday. The six man South Island team was beaten at the last stand with the previous five competitors from each team going chop for chop. The team included Atawhai’s Bradley Wallace, who won the underhand competition on the day, former Nelsonian and current world champion Adam Lowe and former Nelson policeman Daniel Gilsenan. The event, at the Speight’s Ale House in Stoke, also hosted various underhand, standing chop and sawing events with a corporate challenge

giving those in the audience a chance to give the sport a go. Nelson Axemens Club member Bill Nichols says the event was a huge success and they are thinking of making it an annual event. “I think the public liked the teams’ race and people could identify with the teams and really get in behind it.” The Australian choppers took home most of the major prizes but Adam Lowe and John Atkin won the sawing competition and then faced off against the winners of the corporate challenge, Team Weiner. Fair to say the world champions won the saw-off with ease. The axemen will next compete at the Nelson A&P Show.

Richmond New Life offers alternative church experience Imagine it’s late Sunday afternoon, you are walking into a café, live music is playing, you order a latte, sit down, relate to someone nearby and listen to a short spoken presentation. The topic is relevant to your everyday living, you ask questions and share your opinions and insights on the topic. You contribute and learn at the same time. And you call this going to church. This is what is happening at Richmond New Life every Sunday in a bold new initiative called New Life@5. “We centre our experience around some key words” said Pastor Steve King. “The key words are Word, Worship, Community, Authenticity, Interactive and Empowerment, these are what we are about.” Here at New Life@5, we believe in an experience which we consider to be different rather than better. It’s not ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to

church.” Steve, who has decades of church experience as a Pastor, sees the need to have a unique type of service as people are unique. “Jesus constantly interacted with people, and we see this as a key in today’s world. We have thought about this for some years and now it is a great experience to be doing it. I just love this and so do the people” says Steve.” We have had great feedback from a large number of people attending, comments ranging from the benefit of interaction and discussion, the open and relaxed atmosphere allowing connection, a place for all to have a voice, great Biblical teaching and the expectation of seeing miracles unravel. We love the feedback we are getting and it is obviously meeting a need in our community. It seems that people are finding this to be a safe place where they can explore and do faith and life together.”

Five months, two NZ teams Phillip Rollo

There appears to be no offseason on Gracie Roberts’ calendar. Just five months after representing New Zealand at volleyball, the multi-talented Waimea College student has been selected to represent her country at basketball in the Emerging Junior Tall Ferns squad. In between both sports Gracie also plays netball for the Waimea College senior A team that finished second in the top local division and she used to play touch rugby. Gracie says her selection in the FIBA Oceania Pacific Youth Championships team tops representing the New Zealand Under-17 volleyball team. “It’s always been a dream to play for New Zealand,” she says. “Basketball is my favourite but I enjoy mixing it up with all of the sports but my main aim was to make this basketball team. Playing volleyball for New Zealand was pretty cool and I didn’t expect to be selected for that at all.” Gracie Roberts is Nelson’s latest dual international. Able to play in any of the guard of forward positions, the multiPhoto: Phillip Rollo.

talented teen began playing basketball when she was at Henley School and has been heavily influenced by her family. Both of her parents played basketball and her older sister Summer recently made the New Zealand Under-18 basketball team. Gracie’s aim is to cement herself a spot in the New Zealand set-up. A national side will aim to qualify for the FIBA Junior World Championship in her final year of high school and she wants to be an established member of the squad by then. “That’s the main thing I want to get into.” Gracie also has a training camp for the New Zealand secondary school netball team but was playing down her chances of making a third national team in one year. “I don’t know if I’ll do that well in netball, compared to others in the North Island anyway. But we’ll see.” She says her family has been supportive towards her two trips overseas and was happy to continue playing a range of sports. She hopes to one day earn a US scholarship, but in what sport, she doesn’t know.

Black Sox arrive in Nelson Softball fans can meet the New Zealand Black Sox squad today in a meet and greet at Saxton Ballpark. The Black Sox are in Nelson as part of their internal tour as they build towards the world championships in North Harbour next year. Nelson Softball CEO Derryn French says it’s a coup to host the Black Sox for two days. The team will play two exhibition matches plus run coaching sessions in several schools, including Waimea College, Nelson College, Nelson Intermediate, Broadgreen Intermediate, Victory Primary and Clifton Terrace School. “The Black Sox do have time set aside for the team to meet with their fans and young softballers from around the region. Kids can get their posters signed, take photos and meet their heroes,” he says. Meet the Black Sox is set down for 3.15pm to Local blokarters Nathan Bradley, Harrison Saunders and Corri Stein took out their classes at the Blokarting South Island Championships held at the Vortex track over the weekend.

Richmond hosts blokarting champs Richmond held its first ever blokarting championships on the weekend, with people travelling from all around the South Island to take part in the event. Spokesperson for the Top of the South Blokart club, Melissa Frances, says the turnout for the event was fantastic, and she was proud of the fact that three local racers took out their class events. A few years ago Melissa was the only person in Nelson who took part in blokarting, and says the up and coming sport has seen huge growth, with around 18 Nelsonians currently taking part. “The event was absolutely fantas-

tic, I’ve had feedback from people who attended saying it’s the best blokarting event they have been to, and some of those people have been to the world champs.” The racing was held over two days at Richmond’s specialist blokarting Vortex track which Melissa says impressed race goers on the weekend. “Everybody thought it was a great facility.” There were five classes held at the championship, with locals Corri Stein taking out the Production Class, Nathan Bradley winning C Class, and Harrison Saunders of Broadgreen Intermediate coming in at the top of the youth division.

Navigation Safety Bylaw: Temporary Reservation and speed-limit uplifting for Waka racing in the Kaiteriteri/Marahau area Tasman District Council’s Harbourmaster has granted a temporary reservation of the Kaiteriteri swimming and water-ski areas and a limited speed-limit uplifting for those involved in the annual ‘Waka te Tasman’ event, between the hours of 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm on Friday 16 November 2012 and 8.30 am and 5.00 pm on Saturday 17 November 2012. The effect of the temporary reservation will be to prevent other activities including water skiing or swimming from occurring within that area for the time specified. Event marshalls have the authority to require other users to vacate these areas as required, but may allow limited use when racers are well offshore. An uplift of the 5 knot speed restrictions has also been granted to waka ama and support vessels directly involved in the event between Anawera Point and Guilbert Point, including Fisherman Island but excluding Otuwhero Inlet and Little Kaiteriteri. A number of conditions imposed on the organisers of the event may be viewed by contacting the Motueka Waka Ama Club, or Tasman District Council’s Harbourmaster on Ph. 03 543 8400.
