Torrential rain ‘first real test’ for Queen St Matt McCrorie Reporter

While an intense downpour on Sunday, 12 May might have caused a few leaks here and there, it seems as though most of the region was left unscathed. The rain drizzled throughout the day, but there was a period be-

tween 5pm to 6pm where it was reported that 47 mls of rain fell on the richmond hills, and 37 mls came down on Richmond. However, the Tasman District Council was pleased with how everything held up, especially the new Queen Street design. While the remodel of Queen Street was something of a long, arduous process for many, it appears as if all the hard work paid

off, with the weekend’s rain being the first real test. Council Community Relations Manager Chris Choat says that the rain we saw on the Sunday night was a “1 in 5-year event, and the street was designed for 1 in 20.” “It coped very well, and it worked as it was designed” After a debrief meeting on Monday, Chris said that the “Engi-

neers are very happy with its performance, it worked as planned.” “We saw some bark on the street, but that’s about it.” The new design of the street held up well and contributed to the lack of surface flooding and damage, with engineers noting that the new slope of the street that goes down towards the grate in middle meant that the street ‘withstood its first real test.’ “It

was well and truly tested, but it was so effective,” Chris says. The Richmond Mall did suffer some flooding, with some surface flooding as well as roof leaks. Mall manager Belinda de Clerq said, “There was a bit of flooding but the mall is open for trade while we investigate what caused the issues.”

“Probably the Beatrix Potter books, I loved Peter Rabbit and her other characters as a young child growing up. They were such lovely stories.”

Torrential rain ‘first real test’ FROM PAGE 1 Several retail spaces inside the mall were closed for the day, but Belinda said this was at their own discretion. It is reported that Fire and Emergency were called to the mall on Sunday night at around 6pm to help with the flooding. It has also been reported that Made for Men on Queen St suffered some flooding, but this is due to guttering rather than any issues with surface flooding from the road. Jae Cleaning Services in Richmond were busier than usual, with a spokesperson saying, “We were quite busy, there was some residential flooding and some retail spaces. We definitely had some increased trade dur-

ing Sunday night and Monday morning.” The spokesperson said that they mainly dealt with residential callouts, “We did more than usual residential jobs, driveways, streets flooding, that sort of thing – roofs and gutters leaking when there was heavy rain.” This is a timely reminder for people to check their guttering, and to make sure that they are clean and clear for any future heavy rain. Parts of Washbourn Gardens and several streets in Richmond, including Cautley Street, also suffered some surface flooding during the downpour. With the region holding up over the heavy rain, it appears that the drought is well and truly over.

“Enid Blyton was my favourite author as a young one, the books were so imaginative, I loved the storytelling in those novels.”

“I’ve always been a big reader, in my younger days it was the famous five. We used to wait every week for the next one to be read in class, to see what would happen next. I loved the adventure.”

“Tom Sawyer, without a doubt. I loved the adventure aspect of it. I grew up over in Golden Bay, so we lived it. We were always inspired by the books.”

Teaming up to save our kea Jonty Dine

If we are to save the planet, we must do it together. A team of Nelson conservationists has teamed up to help protect one of the region’s most iconic native birds. Nelmac has announced a partnership with the Department of Conservation, the Kea Conservation Trust, and Ngati Kuia to help protect endangered kea - the world’s only mountain parrot. Key members of the collaboration gathered at Queens Park on Friday morning where they planted ferns in the gardens to symbolise their commitment to the environment. The partnership will see Nelmac provide at least $60,000 of financial support to KCT and DOC’s kea recovery initiatives over the next three years. Nelmac’s support will focus on lead removal

Lions club present generous donation


New CRF450X

Matt McCrorie Reporter

A generous donation of $3,500 was presented to Mayor Richard Kempthorne by the Richmond Lions Club last week. The money, which was raised by the club, has been donated towards the Mayoral Relief Fund. Alex Robertson, a member of the Lions Club, said that the primary aim of the Lions Club, in line with their motto, is “We Serve.” “We serve our community by raising funds from various activities such as selling firewood, kindling wood and selling sausages at Bunnings store. All of the money raised through these efforts is donated to local organisations and/or individuals within our community. “We hope that this donation will help those people directly affected by the fire,” Alex says. This donation is just one of many that have been raised through the community to contribute to the Mayoral relief fund, in an effort to aid with the recovery process. The applications for the fund closed on May 12, and are now being processed, with the council dedicating two full-time and two part-time staff members to the effort.

Richmond swimming coach takes on national team Matt McCrorie While his athletes are usually the ones who gain recognition, local swimming coach Daniel Bell has recently been recognised for his coaching ability and asked to take a New Zealand team overseas. Daniel, a formal Olympic swimmer and Tasman Magic Academy swimming coach, was recently selected to take a team of top young swimmers to Australia, for the Australian State Teams Championships “New Zealand sends a team over to compete against teams from each state in Australia. You’re allowed up to 10 boys and 10 girls in each of the two ages groups, so it’s a limited team size.” Daniel will be taking 24 students who will be selected during a training camp on the 17-21 May in Auckland, where three of his own athletes will be seeking inclusion. Competing in the Australian state teams championships is a big step up, not only for the athletes, but for Daniel’s coaching

career, too. For the young athletes, “the level of competition is much higher, the people in the water are very high calibre. The athletes will be racing Australian title holders, and it’s a good learning curve for young athletes travelling to compete and being away from the comforts of home.” The competition is a great future pathway opportunity for Daniel’s coaching career, too, “Getting to travel with athletes who I might not have had any association with, and having to learn quickly about what they do well and don’t do well, and come up with a strategy very quickly.” Daniel himself used to swim in the same competition when he was a young swimmer, so he says he knows the ins and outs of the competition. “I’m always proud to wear the silver fern, whether it’s being in the water and doing it myself or yelling from the side, barking orders” Daniel says. The opportunity for developing his coaching techniques is something

that Daniel is looking forward to, saying that “Networking is huge in the world of coaching. Being able to pick the brains of other top coaches who have athletes at the level that I have athletes at is a really good opportunity.” And as it turns out, getting the time off his day job wasn’t hard to pull off either. The team at the Aquatic centre are excited for Daniel too, saying that the skills he picks up as a coach at the competition is “great for the region.” Swim School Manager Lisa Stove says, “we’re lucky in this region to have Daniel involved, because it brings that high level back to the Tasman region.” Daniel joined the aquatic centre at the begining of the year as the coach of the Tasman Magic Academy. Staff says that this recognition is no surprise to them. “We obviously made the right decision in Daniel, all the recognition he’s getting as a coach for what he’s doing is just fantastic,” says Vaughn Hope, the facilities manager.

Outward Bound no walk in the park FROM PAGE 1 Matt McCrorie Three weeks of intense tramping, kayaking, sailing rowing, rock climbing, and relative isolation may have pushed some beyond their limits, but for Waimea College student Leila Challenger, it has only strengthened her. Leila recently spent three weeks in Anakiwa, Marlborough, as part of ‘Outward

Bound’ adventure course. A year 12 student at Waimea College, Leila gained a scholarship to go on Outward Bound through the Mayors’ Taskforce for jobs, a network of mayors working together for the vision of young people in education, training or work. course. Leila is on the Nelson City Council’s Youth Council, and it was there that she learned about the scholarship. “I wanted to take the course,

mainly because of my leadership aspirations, and I’m quite outdoorsy, I’ve done adventure racing before so it really was for me.” The 3 week challenge was no walk in the park. “It was definitely a physical and mental challenge.” “Once they found our limits, they continued to test them. 20 hour days sailing until midnight, and getting up at 5am. It really tests you.” The most valuable lesson she

learnt was that “there’s always more you can do. You can always push further than you think, there’s always that second tank that you can access. It’s the mental barrier, the mental stops the physical.” While the challenge might have been tough, Leila says it was worth it. “It teaches you so many life lessons in a short amount of time, and it builds your selfconfidence.

Mahana fun run

Cycling New Zealand from Nelson

Mahana School will soon be hosting its annual fund-raising event, the Mahana School fun run. A team of parents have worked tirelessly to ensure that the day will be a fun-filled time for all those who wish to go along. The Mahana School fun run and Fiesta will take place on Saturday, 18 May, from 9:30am to 1pm. Newly-appointed principal Paul Shand says that the run will be a great way of “showcasing the beautiful Mahana area, as the trail meanders through beautiful farmland and alongside vineyards with stunning views of the Western Ranges.” The course will be on varied terrain, with fences, stiles, forest and creeks, with a choice of a 5km or 10km walk/run. There will be a range of spot prizes provided for runners, while everyone who attends the event can enter the raffle, bid for a range of excellent silent auction items, or sit back and relax, enjoying the unique location. The run/walk and 10km is on Saturday, 18th May, with the run beginning at 10am.

He is one of six individuals, and 15 teams, who are taking part in the ‘50k a Day for the Month of May Challenge’ to raise funds for the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter Trust (NMRHT). “When I got to the airport the flights were cancelled because of the fog, so I’ll do it again this weekend, but I’ll take my bike with me and do my rides up north,” says Grant. The challenge sees participants walk, run or bike 50km every day in May in a bid to raise $50,000 for the NMRHT. By the end of the challenge participants will have travelled almost the length of New Zealand – 1600 kilometres. Grant’s boss was flown to Wellington by the rescue helicopter last year after a medical event. So he thought it would be the perfect time to join the challenge. “I thought ‘why not, it’s a good cause’.” Grant says he has several different routes that he rides to get his kilometres up, each one taking between 1 hour 45 mins and two

I’m a cyclist anyway and I’ve been riding for quite a few years on and off, but it’s just a bit more commitment.” Outside of the challenge Grant says it would be easy to not go for a ride if it was a bad day or the weather wasn’t great. “Now I’ve got to go.”

He says while it’s “fairly easy” to clock up 50km on a bike, it doesn’t come without challenges. “Thursday was the worst day, I rode 15 kilometres and got two punctures, so I headed home, had a shower and did the rest in the garage with my bike on rollers.” Grant says the support of his workplace – Ewing Poultry, has

given him extra motivation. “They are sponsoring me a total amount if I complete the challenge and they let me finish half an hour early every day so I can head out on my bike.” To donate to Grant, or any of the other participants you can go to event/50k

Attention all local schools and parents

Our mission is to provide free school and sports footwear to children in need aged between 5 and 13 years of age in the Nelson/Tasman region.

Nelson Tasman has its very own charity putting shoes on our young people. The Trustees of Walk with Us Trust are all local women whose aim it is to make sure that no child in our region ever goes to school or plays sport without fit-for-purpose shoes or boots. Children select their own shoe or boot under the guidance of our local suppliers - Whitwell’s Motueka, Stirling Sport Richmond and Nelson, Smith’s Shoes, Nelson and Number One Shoes. These stores have been providing shoes and boots to Walk with Us children since 2013. Parents can choose which store they go to, but the child must be present when the shoes or boots are fitted and purchased for them.

The Walk with Us Trustees need your help to spread the word so that schools and sports clubs know that they can apply for funding on behalf of local children. The Trustees would like to Shout-out to all primary and intermediate school teachers or sports coaches that if they know of a child who needs new shoes or sports boots, simply ask the child’s school principal for an application form or call Anne-Marie on 027 544 8255 or email: walkwithusnz@gmail. com Any child between the ages of 5 and 13 years, whose parents may be struggling financially, qualifies to apply. Put your hand up, Walk with Us is here to help.

Shout-out to all local schools and parents of primary school students. If there is a need, your child may qualify for a pair of sports boots/shoes or school shoes. Simply apply through your local school principal.* The application process is simple and confidential. Show this advert to your school office administrator or ask them to call Anne Marie on 027 544 8255 or email walkwithusnz@gmail. com for an application form. ‘Walk with Us’ is Charitable Trust registered under the Charities Act 2005 - Charities Commission #CC49440. *Conditions may apply.

Extra $792,000 for Fire Recovery The Tasman fire relief effort has been boosted, with the region gaining an additional $792,000. The extra money, which has come from the Lottery Grants Board, was announced by Internal Affairs minister Tracey Martin, last week. Mayor Richard Kempthorne explains that the Mayoral Relief Fund now has four branches. The general fund, which was for firebreak damage, welfare and business needs, and damage to property is $500,000. This money partially came from government grants, but a large portion is made up of community donations and fund-raising. “It’s incredible. A 10-year-old girl from Auckland had the idea of doing a mufti day to raise funds. They raised $550, and that’s a decile 3 school.” A second branch of the fund, of $50,00, will be used for a partial

reimbursement of freight costs for feed brought in for farmers during the fire. The initial Lottery Grants Board fund of $1 million, that was announced in March, will be used for repair to property for the damage caused by firefighting. This includes, firebreaks, fences, pipes, tanks and pools. Some of this money is set aside for non-profits. The $792,000 announced last week will be the fourth branch of the mayoral relief fund, which will be used to help do some work to stabilise the steeper slopes that have been burnt, to prevent slips and to deal with siltation in waterways. “They’ve began sowing grass, as the root mass on that soil is going to set the hillside and prevent slips.” Applications for the fund closed on May 12, and are now being processed by the council.

Relief fund breakdown $500,000 General Fund – Welfare needs, business needs, damage to property $50,000 – partial reimbursement of freight costs $1 million – repair to property damage caused by firefighting $792,000 – Stablising slopes, sowing new grass, siltation in waterways

Tasman District Council to add Kaihautū

The Council has decided to appoint a Kaihautū to ensure a more collaborative relationship with the local iwi in the top of the South Island and the council. The Kaihautū will take on a role of providing culturally responsible advice, and will support the development of essential partnerships and be responsible for fostering positive engagement. In accordance with the Te Tau Ihu and Ngāi Tahu Settlement Acts and the Treaty of Waitangi, the Council has an obligation to work with iwi. “While staff have made good progress and act with best intentions, appropriate support and guidance is required to ensure we meet our legislative and social obligations in a meaningful and sustainable way”, said Chief Executive Janine Dowding. “We are not alone in recognising the benefit of these relationships. A number of councils throughout the country with a Kaihautū on staff are seeing significantly improved relationships with and between local iwi, Maori, the wider community and the Council.” The appointment process will be managed over the next few weeks.

Garin takes out Showquest Staff Reporter Garin College took out the Nelson Showquest at Trafalgar Centre on Friday in the second regional heat of the nationwide performing arts event for schools.

Local teens captured the spirit of the event in themes that are important to them, from global warming to the effect of the recent fires on the local community. Garin College themed their piece around deep-sea mining, with

student co-captain Ayden Slade saying that performing was a big learning experience. “Winning was a huge wave of emotions, we didn’t think we’d get everything done in time,” the 17-year-old says. “I have learned

that some things just don’t go our way, but if we just keep treading through then we will get there in the end, and there is evidence of that today.” Teams in the competitive section were judged overall on their de-

sign, performance, movement, and theme. Showquest is being staged throughout the country this year, and a national final will name the top entry nationwide in September.

The Snowden Bush Trust remains on track and is headed for several milestones this month. The trust, formed to incorporate land being sold by the Diocesan Board at the front of Snowden Bush in Brightwater, has a big month ahead, with several milestones expected over the coming weeks. The sale and purchase agreement is set to go ahead. Trust member Jeremy Cameron says, “Currently, the deal is being clarified around tech-

nical issues, regarding boundaries and ensuring that a seamless incorporation of the land into the existing reserve can be made.” The trust is also soon expecting official confirmation of its status as a Charitable Trust, ‘which will open the door for our fund-raising to begin in earnest’. National MP for Nelson Nick Smith and trust member Jeremey Cameron are meeting with TDC mayor, Richard Kempthorne this month to outline the aims and, objectives of the Snowden Bush Trust, so that

the two organisations can work collaboratively together, with Jeremy commenting, “We are hopeful the interests of the community, the SBT and the Tasman District Council align. Jeremey says, “Our marketing material is in the final stages of preparation and Brightwater residents can expect a brochure in the letterbox in June.” A Quiz Night will also be held, at the Sprig and Fern in Brightwater on Thursday, 4 July, to raise funds and awareness. “It will be great opportunity for the community to show their support for the project by attending and / or donating raffle prizes.” Nick Smith added, “This is a unique opportunity to expand the largest remanent of totara forest on the Waimea plains. It has become important with the loss of much native forest in the fires at the beginning of the year. The trust is doing a fantastic job and has secured agreement with the Anglican Church on very generous terms to purchase the land, and now we will need to get going on our fund-raising.”

The inaugural STIHL Chainsaw Safety Awareness Week is on this week with a strong but simple message for the Kiwi ‘weekend warrior’ – taking five minutes to get ready before you start your DIY adventure is essential to your safety. Supported by ACC, STIHL Chainsaw Safety Awareness Week targets the occasional chainsaw user who starts up their machinery once in a while but may not give proper consideration to keeping themselves safe. Safety chaps, ear muffs and glasses are widely available but uptake is not yet in line with chainsaw sales. Tips for safe chainsaw use can be found in the injury prevention section at To show its support for operator safety, STIHL has released special edition chainsaw safety gear packages to protect user’s legs, ears and eyes. The safety packs contain STIHL chaps, ear muffs and glasses at a reduced price of $158 RRP.

2019 Waimea Squash Open a resounding success A huge amount of work has gone into the Waimea Squash club over the past year. Boasting four glass backed courts, warm and modern facilities, a family friendly atmosphere, and plenty of social and competitive events over the year; the club was voted Squash Canterbury’s Top Club last year, a huge achievement. Waimea Squash Club is booming, and this was reflected in the recently held Waimea Open. It’s the clubs largest event on the calendar, and signals the start of the competitive squash season. Sponsored by Tasman Water Care Distribution Ltd and Stirling Sports Richmond,

77 players entered, the largest number for many years. It was great to see a large number of women players competing, and a healthy junior division. There were some great physical matches during the weekend and a surprisingly high proportion of five setters as opponents refused to give in. Off court there was a great social atmosphere as players and supporters relaxed. The mens final was between Waimea member and the regions top ranked player Mark Kerr, against Greymouth’s rising star Ben Cole. Ben won the first two games comfortably and many supporters believed

it all over. But Mark had a different plan. Using experience and superior shot making skills he kept his younger opponent running. Forcing errors from Ben as he began to tire, Mark showed his class by winning the next three games to take the match in five. The Womens Open final was shaping up to be a stunner between long term opponents Susan O’Connell from Waimea, and Maree Smith from Motueka. However Susan Susan strained a calf in the dying points of her previous game and reluctantly had to pull out of the match. Maree won by default.

Richmond F45 succumb to Jacks It was a tenuous second hit out for the Richmond F45 premier netball team last Thursday night at Saxton Stadium. Missing a few key players didn’t help their case against a slick and ready Jacks side who were out to make their mark. The game began with Richmond F45 stealing three intercepts, however they weren’t unable to convert these to points. Both teams worked hard throughout, early jitters leading to a lack of conversions. Marina Hirst Tristram and Sarah Steele found their combination and worked well in the defensive end of the

court, however Jacks ran away, scoring 11 unanswered goals to end the quarter 15 - 4 in their favour. Richmond F45 lacked their punch in the second stanza, without Sharon Finch and Kat Jones to steady the play. Circle feeds were slow and Jacks precision led to a punishing half time result (30 - 11). Harriet Ogilvie elevated her work rate in the third quarter and impressed outside the circle, however Jacks’ Jess Drummond and Kirsty Thompson were relentless on defence with Dawson and Waitai capitalising with well-rewarded points.

Entering the fourth quarter 43 - 16 in Jacks favour, it was hard for the Richmond F45 team to play catch up netball. They started strong, scoring the first two goals and found good possession, with another superb outing from youngster Maddison Springer, playing GD, picking up several intercepts and strong through her midcourt feeds. Jacks, however, were outstanding and completed the game 50- 23. Richmond players will be disappointed they were not able to back up their performance from last week and look to redeem themselves this week.

Nelson Matters

Nelson’s emergency services described the New Years Eve 2017 road smash in Appleby that killed 23-year-old Matthew Dow as the worst they had ever seen. The offending driver was high on meth and cannabis and was witnessed driving like a maniac and passing recklessly. Matthew was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was the 79th fatality that year caused by a drug-impaired driver. These tragic numbers have skyrocketed, from 14 in 2014, 27 in 2015, 54 in 2016 to 79 in 2017. There are now more road fatalities caused by drug-impaired drivers than by drunk drivers. Police lack tools for getting drugged drivers

off the road. The number of prosecutions was only 200 for drug impaired driving compared to 16,000 for drunk driving in 2017. Matthew’s family sought my support to get drugged drivers off the road. We launched a petition for New Zealand to introduce roadside drug testing as occurs in Australia, the UK and Canada. Police Minister Stewart Nash was dismissive of the petition saying on TVNZ in December 2018 “‘There’s a Discussion Document that’s been approved by Cabinet that’s going out to the public early next year.’ This was not true. We now know Police and Transport presented

Ministers with a Discussion Document on roadside drug testing in December 2017 yet it has been sitting on Ministers desks for 17 months and is still not public. The problem is this Government has a blind spot on the dangers of drugs. Green Minister for Road Safety Ms. Genter has rejected Police and Transport Ministry advice. She says saliva drug testing is too intrusive. Meanwhile the Government is liberalising access to recreational drugs like cannabis and weakening enforcement laws on drugs like Meth. I caused a stir in Parliament last week when I questioned Police Minister Stuart Nash. I sought

Woodstock 7% 330ml 6 Pack Cans

leave to introduce Nationals Bill enabling Police to randomly test drivers for drugs. Speaker Mallard inexplicably blocked the Bill against normal Parliamentary practice. I objected, resulting in me being suspended from Parliament. I make no apologies. It’s my job to call Ministers out when they are untruthful and to push for progress on important issues for our community. The following day the Coroners Court reported that the Waverley tragedy in June 2018 was caused by a driver high on cannabis and synthetics. This was the worst road crash in a decade, killing 7 people. The affected families over the

weekend joined Matthew’s family and I in pushing for roadside drug testing. The Government, with National’s support, quickly passed new gun control laws in response to the 51 tragic deaths in the Christchurch Mosque attack. We need the same urgency in addressing drugimpaired drivers who kill over 70 people a year. I urge Nelsonians to support this campaign. You can sign at my caravan at the Nelson Market this Saturday, at my office or online by searching ‘Matthew Dow Petition’. We need to work together to get drug-mpaired drivers off our roads. Advt.

Nelson’s running doctor scores world-first Suzanne McFadden As a junior doctor, Katie Wright is completely used to working long hours through the night, making decisions on little sleep. So, when the 32-year-old lined up at the start of New Zealand’s cruellest ultramarathon two weeks ago – a race that didn’t even have a finish-line - she felt confident she could last the distance. Maybe even win it.

After running 201km, almost non-stop for 30 hours, Katie was back at work at Nelson Hospital on Monday morning. She had just made history - as the first woman in the world to be the ‘last person standing’ in a backyard ultramarathon. She’d outlasted six other women, and 40 men, running on a challenging course through the Riverhead Forest to claim the honour. And tucked in a secret pocket in her jacket was a special gold coin

- the golden ticket giving her entry to the world championship of backyard ultras in Tennessee in October. Back at work, Katie is typically humble about her achievement. “I can’t even comprehend that. It’s crazy,” she says. This was a woman who had no training plan, no special diet or hi-tech gear, and ran her first ultramarathon just six months ago. The rules of the Riverhead ‘Backyard Relaps’ ultramarathon is

simple: complete one 6.7km lap within an hour, and then restart again on the hour, and repeat until there’s only one runner left standing. Katie, who came to live in New Zealand a year ago, was the first woman in the world to actually achieve it. She initially worked in emergency medicine at Blenheim Hospital, but “popped over the hill” to Nelson Hospital seven weeks ago, to get some experience in psy-

chiatry. Katie ran her first 100km ultramarathon race in Taupo last October. When she saw the notice for this year’s inaugural Riverhead backyard ultra, Katie thought it looked right up her alley. “I didn’t need a training plan to train for it. My standard run is to put on my backpack, fill it with a load of stuff and go run for a weekend, at a four-and-a-bit mile an hour pace,” she says.

First win for Waimea combined

Waimea Combined Schools got their first win of the season when they hosted Mid Canterbury Combined at Garin College over the weekend, sneaking home 17 - 15. For the second time in two matches Waimea conceded a try within the first play of the game, with a poor kick chase proving costly. Five minutes later Waimea were once again hard on defence on their own line until Mackay Springer intercepted a long ball to run the length of the field to score under the sticks. He converted his own try to regain the lead 7 5. Waimea were the next to score when a perfectly executed backline move off the back of the scrum put winger Jake Jenner through a hole to dot down next to the posts. Mackay Springer was once again on target to take the scoring out to 14 - 5. A lack of discipline cost Waimea 3 points shortly after, and on the back of some good momentum Mid Canterbury went in for their second try on the stroke of half time to regain the lead 15 - 14. Both teams threw everything at each other in the second half, with Waimea using their bench effectively to lift the tempo. The half was scoreless until a late penalty opportunity arose for Waimea, with Mackay Springer once again stepping up and nailing the kick to seal the win. Waimea Combined Schools travel south this weekend to take in St Andrews College in round three.

Richmond pair claim two indoor bowls titles Richmond resident bowlers Mike Johnston and Diane Grooby played great consistent bowls over the weekend to win the NZ Mixed Fours qualifying tournament on Saturday together with Johnny Persico and Denise Powick, then yesterday they also won the NZ Mixed Pairs qualifying tournament. This qualifies them for the zone play-offs for both, in Greymouth in early July. The winners of the two zone playoffs then qualify to compete for the two NZ titles on offer in Hamilton later in the year. Johnston has previously won the NZ Mixed Fours title twice. Yesterday in the mixed pairs, teams had to win at least two and a half games from four section games to qualify for sudden death, post-section play, with each game played over ten ends. Four teams qualified for post section, with Johnston playing Club Waimea’s Lewis Della Bosca, who had Shirley Deerness at lead, in one semi-final. Della Bosca’s team was the only team to be unbeaten during section play winning all four games. In the other semi-final Barry

Beams who was playing with up and coming new player Marie Granger, was pitted against Club Waimea’s Nathan Della Bosca who was playing with consistent draw player Vonnie Turipa. Johnston and Grooby dominated their semi-final in beating Lewis Della Bosca 165, while Nathan Della Bosca beat Beams in a nail biting match 11-10. In the final Johnston played Della Bosca, and Johnston’s lead Grooby played exceptional bowls through-out the match to set up a dominating win 12-1. On Saturday the mixed fours were played, with teams needing to again win at least two and a half games from four played to qualify, with each game played over ten ends. As in the pairs competition four teams qualified for post-section play. In one semi-final Johnston, Persico, Powick and Grooby were drawn to play Nathan Della Bosca, dad Lewis, Vonnie Turipa and Diana Hemopo. The other semi-final saw Johnston’s dad Clive Johnston, who had Bill Hart, Pat Carrick-

Clarke and new bowler Marian Stephens who play for the Hope club, playing against Club Waimea’s Jean McKenzie, Mary Jordan, Kevin McKenzie and Phil Jordan. Mike Johnston’s team comfortably beat Della Bosca in their semi-final 12-2 while McKenzie’s team were also always in control of their semi-final beating Clive Johnston’s team 9-1. This meant Johnston played McKenzie in the final over ten ends, and it was an extremely tight affair with only singles being scored on each end bar one. Johnston lead 5-1 after six ends but McKenzie then scored a two to close the gap to 5-3 after seven. Singles were traded to each team over the next two ends to leave Johnston leading 6-4 going into the final end. Johnston played a great draw shot to score a single and win the absorbing arm wrestle 7-4. This week’s action sees Club Waimea’s 9 Bowl Triples on Wednesday starting at 1pm at Club Waimea. The Nelson reps also play their first rep match of the season at home in Nelson starting on Saturday.

Perfect conditions for memorial event The Ray Anderson memorial Vintage Motocross event held at the Anglesey farm at Tadmor was well patronised with 68 riders for the Top of the South VMX club’s annual event. Jared Guthrie took out the Ray Anderson Memorial Trophy, winning three classes the pre-1986 on a 1982 Yamaha, followed by Steve Lang and Jared’s ever-green father Peter Guthrie. Jared also won the pre-1990 on the same bike, hotly pursued by Peter

Guthrie and Ashton Oliver. Jared then followed up by winning the mid-bore class for pre-1986 bikes. Good numbers were on the line for most classes. Conditions were perfect for the event, that was held over rolling terrain and berms forming in some of the corners as the day progressed. The event was by all means a success, and raised $170 for the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter Trust Rescue Helicopter.

Greenacres play for Westrupp Trophy Four teams of six from Totaradale, Motueka, Greenacres and Nelson all competed in the Westrupp Trophy last week, using players with the lowest handicap indexes that

are available. Three rounds of 36 holes were played with points accummulating, This year the Greenacres team won, a repeat of last year’s result, with 44 points, Nelson 38,

Motueka 18 and Totaradale 1 The Greenacres club enjoyed their victory, congratulating all the other teams, and thanked their supporters who came out to watch.

Running conditions were excellent for the first of the four Waimea Harrier Sprig and Fern 10km Races for the 2019 season. This event was hosted by the Richmond Sprig and Fern. While these races are for runners and walkers of all abilities and ages who wish to keep up their fitness levels during the winter months, there is also considerable competition among the athletes and some

very fast times are recorded. In this race, the 60 participants enjoyed a variety of terrain with several challenging uphill sections followed by fast downhills. Caleb Pearson and Eddie Hohepa led the field out and pushed each other over the first 2kms, until the younger legs of Pearson dominated and he finished in 36.46mins, one minute ahead of Hohepa.

Strong start for AFC season Avoiding the ‘mother’s-day weather’ that settled in on Sunday, Saturday was a contrast for football with most teams playing in early to mid-teen temperatures across the region. From a delayed start because of the condition of fields around Tasman due to the earlier water shortages, the juniors are now two weeks into their season and the seniors have had four weeks. The five youth teams recorded 2 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw and a bye on Saturday, with the Helen Ruston Mike Pero Real Estate U16 Development team having their second win of the season when they beat FC Nelson 5 goals to 1. The young lads have scored 11 goals across the two games and are looking strong again at the start of their 2019 campaign. In the afternoon senior matches the club recorded 6 wins, 2 losses and a draw, with the wins including two 1pm games where Richmond teams scored 7 goals each. The Fresh Choice Richmond 2nd team, who, after a couple of weeks not finding the net, comfortably beat Nelson Suburbs 7 – 1 with hat-tricks from both Josh Ryan and Matt Edwards and the 7th slotted by Matt Dowding,

and the Richmond Hornbills 2nd team who got the better of Tahuna, eventually coming away with a 7 – 2 win with 4 goals scored by

current club-leading goal scorer Thang Thang Vanuk, and one each to Van Bawi Lawn, Van Bawi Zathang, and Van Roland.

At 3pm the About Beauty at Monaco Richmond Swans battled out a 2 – 2 draw against FC Nelson in the women’s 1st division,

however the Hothouse Richmond Foxes comfortably beat Blenheim Valley 3 – 1 at Jubilee Park. And also at Jubilee, the Fresh Choice Richmond 1st team took on Nelson Suburbs and looked to follow up from their solid win against Wakefield the week before. The game started sharply with the Richmond boys setting a high tempo, finding themselves 1 – 0 up at the half time break through a goal from giant centre back Cory Glover who joined the club at the start of the season. However it was a cliché game of two halves, and Suburbs came out in the second period with a changed formation and a more aggressive press, forcing errors from the Richmond defence, resulting in 2 goals midway through the half making it 2 – 1. Richmond hit back immediately through an excellent pass from young Alex Ward, placed perfectly for long time club member Glen Pearless to calmly slot the ball home, equalising the score. Unfortunately however, Suburbs were awarded a penalty in the dying minutes that they converted to take a 3 – 2 win. Man of the match Alex Lindbom was solid in defence throughout the game.

Wanderers Sports Club Report

Two hotly-contested victories Contrasting styles Another successful weekend of Rugby for the Taylors Wanderers resulted in two hotly-contested victories for the teams at Centennial Park, Brightwater, in front of a very vocal crowd in ideal conditions for entertaining play. In the early game, Collingwood arrived with a good group of supporters and both teams traded scores in an extremely even contest which ended the first half at 15-12 to the hosts, 3 tries to 2. It was a game of contrasting styles with the visitors’ game based around a very large, yet mobile forward pack while Wanderers appeared to have an edge in the backline where Ducati MorrellHopa was causing chaos. Seizing opportunities The second half continued for 15 minutes with no change to the score, both teams enjoying periods of domination without being able to make the final decisive action and it took an opportunist interception from broken play for Wanderers to break the deadlock. It was particularly frustrating to Collingwood as it was on the back of a missed penalty touch kick by Wanderers which was chased well by winger Jack Pool who forced the pass which was picked off by Ethan Johnson. This was the third time that Pool had chased hard and harried Collingwood behind the advantage line, in a good example of committed wing play. Play stopped in the second half following an enormous bonecrunching tackle by Sean King on the opposition tight head prop,

day for the “never say die” attitude that existed in this match. Both teams were able to score when dominant but equally were able to hold on when being dominated, which created a very entertaining spectacle to the public. Stand out play was acknowledged by Kurtis Bandy, who anchored the scrum and both Will Hamilton and Naki Saumaki who carried the fight to Awatere all day, both getting on the scoreboard with tries, ably assisted by Chris Hala’ufia who crossed twice, and Fletcher Matthews. Conversions were added by Justin Barr and Jacob Berthelsen, who each landed two.

Photo: Supplied. which required both players receiving attention before dusting themselves off and continuing, again in an excellent example of commitment and correct technique by both players. Deserved Victory In the final minutes, Wanderers scored two more tries to inflate the scoreline but take a fully deserved victory. Scorers for Wanderers were Ducati Morrell-Hopa (2) Sean Whitaker, Etan Johnson, Bobby Palmer and Charlie Munro, who also kicked 2 conversions for a final score of 34-12, to maintain the unbeaten record after 4 rounds of this competition. On Saturday, Taylors Wanderers

will host Nelson at Brightwater at 1.15pm. The Div 1 Taylors Wanderers team had a very similar encounter against Awatere: East Coast. Once again the visitors arrived with a loyal, vocal support group with a game based around the direct approach of the forward pack, and an early intercept try saw them off to a perfect start at 0-7. Wanderers did appear to have a possible advantage in the backline and a superior scrum but were unable to exploit either, and the teams traded tries in the first half before going to the break at 14-12 in favour of Wanderers. The second half started in similar fashion to the first with East

Coast scoring early to lead 14-17 before three consecutive tries to Wanderers took them out to 3317, appearing to make the game safe and out of reach of the Awatere boys. However East Coast came storming back, scoring two late tries and, like so many games this season, the game went down to the final play before the Wanderers players and coaching staff could breath a sigh of relief, leaving the visitors frustrated at 33-26. Season brings close games It has been a feature of the TRU competition this season, the closeness of many games, and it is a credit to both teams on Satur-

Wanderers play at home Wanderers now sit in 3rd place in the competition and will host Riwaka at Brightwater on Saturday which is Club Day and will see all Wanderers teams play at home, with first games for Under 6s commencing at 9.30am and playing right through the day with Women hosting Waimea Old Boys at 1.15pm at Lord Rutherford Park and Div 2 playing Nelson at Centennial Park at 1.15pm also. Volunteers acknowledged The day will include an acknowledgement to all the volunteers who assisted the Wanderers Club during the Pigeon Valley fire crisis, and the club extends an invitation to each volunteer to attend and enjoy the entertainment and refreshments that will be provided on Saturday afternoon.
