“I can stick to a budget, it seems to work for me and is easy to follow.”

“My partner and I have always had a budget. We’ve noticed the cost of living going up and so our budget has changed over the years.”

“As a small business owner I have an interest in the upcoming budget and have concerns with Kiwi Saver contributions and the tax right-offs.”

“The government needs to make cuts, especially because of the earthquakes and all the expenses they’ve had this year. I’d like to see the government look after families.”

value. To calculate the fund though, Michael claimed the value of the Village, essentially the roadways, green spaces and communal properties only, not the residents’ own houses, was $19 million. After talks broke down between the Wright’s and the committee, Michael began implementing a number of other messages, such as barring them from using the communal Blue Heron Lounge in the Village for any “commercial” activity. Such “commercial” activities that were no longer allowed according to Michael included monthly podiatrist visits, garage sales and fundraising activities. One of the key reasons Michael gave for this change in use, which coincidentally came one day after talks broke down, was due to “council stipulations”. How-

ever these claims were disputed by councillor Judene Edgar. “Council has received no complaints and there are no concerns about these activities. I have verified with [Council] staff that they are all allowable activities in terms of the Village’s Resource Consent.” But the small residents committee of 70 and 80-year olds rose to the challenge and “spent a huge amount of time in seeking advice, discussing, researching, drafting, editing and writing the two submissions” for arbitration, reported the Committee. With help from Age Concern, Nelson Bays Community Law Service, and with “the support and encouragement from the residents of the Village and the community at large”, the committee prepared and presented professional submissions. At a standing-room only meeting of residents last Thursday, May 12, the committee updated

the residents on the arbitration proceedings. Family members from as far afield as Australia came to the meeting to support their elderly relatives that had been severely stressed by the situation. But the committee hasn’t given up. They received tumultuous applause when they announced they would all be standing again at the AGM later this month. Age Concern’s Sue Tilby says the committee deserve a massive pat on the back for taking on the village owners. “Their tenacity has been incredable, I have nothing but respect for the committee.” She says she has spoken to a “huge amount” of residents who have been scared throughout the process and she says the orginal demands by Michael and Carolyn were “totally over-the-top”. “It was outrageous, I’m shocked they would even look at it.” Michael and Carolyn have since moved from Waimea Village to a new home on the Richmond Hills.

Plains Chardonnay 2009. In fact, Richmond Plains has won medals for all its entries at this show, with two other wines awarded silver medals. Owner of Richmond Plains Lars Jensen says the results are exceptionally pleasing, coming from a very respected international wine competition in the world’s fastest growing wine

market. “Our philosophy at Richmond Plains is to produce delicious wine – while truly working with nature,” he says. “By carefully growing and nurturing our vines using natural, organic and biodynamic methods and harnessing all that nature has to offer, we can truly express the vineyard's character or terroir in our wines.” Established in 1991 and exclu-

sively organic since inception, their small family vineyard based just outside of Richmond is an organic and biodynamic specialist – the first New Zealand winery to achieve both certifications. Richmond Plains produced New Zealand’s first ever Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Blanc de Noir from certified organic and biodynamic grapes.

Stage comes alive as Garin students get ready to perform It’s been a lot of hard work but last night it all paid off for the Garin College students participating in the annual Stage Challenge. Results were not known before the Waimea Weekly went to print yesterday, but these will be available on our facebook page today. Garin College students have been working on their performance since the start of the year and have enjoyed being directed by their peers. Four senior students, Emily Graham, Annabelle Nichols, Jeanie Winter and Hannah Gibson have been in charge of the students and say although it has been a lot of hard work and at times stressful, it has been a “whole heap” of fun. The Year 13 students say anyone who wanted to take part in Stage Challenge was able to, there were no auditions. The group of students were hoping for a great result last night and say their toughest opposition was likely to come from Waimea, Nayland and Marlborough Girls. “We’ve really worked together, it’ll all be worth it once the eight minutes is over,” says Hannah.

READY TO PERFORM: Garin College students, from left, Philip Gibson, Katie Shanaher, Lauren Wilks, Katy Sinnott, Hannah Robinson, Ella Milne and Paige Thomas at their Stage Challenge rehearsal on Sunday. The school were competing against Marlborough Girls’ College, Nayland College, Waimea College, Broadgreen Intermediate, Nelson Intermediate, Tapawera Area School and Takaka Primary School last night. For full results check our facebook page from today. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

‘Long winded’ process finally comes to a close at Greenacres Resource consent has finally been approved for the Greenacres Golf Course subdivision after more than four years of work. The Best Island golf course has two hectares of land it is hoping to sell and has spent the past few years getting consent. Current manager and president Graham Sherlock says the process has been huge and everyone is very relieved to finally reach this result. The land sale process started in January 2007 but it took until August 2009 for the resource consent application to get underway. “Following the approval and appeal process a final approval was not made until

earlier this month,” says Graham. er of the land permission to build The subdivision is now set for a a resort-type complex. resort complex – all that is needed Having this next to a golf course is a buyer. would be very beneficial for everyone involved according to GraGraham says the process has been ham. dragged out because of submissions from the public, but as it was Graham also understands the a publically notified resource concouncil has looked at putting a sent application he and the club rowing course on Rabbit Island. “I believe they’re looking at makunderstand they had the right to do so. “Everything was compli- Graham Sher- ing Rabbit Island a bit of a sports lock. cated; it was a long winded apfacility and therefore this developplication that had a lot of things to satisfy ment would be the closest accommodation different people and all the time the costs to that.” went up for the developer.” The concept for the resort complex has The resource consent would give the own- been approved so if a potential buyer were

If the sale of the golf course land goes through it would make Greenacres one of the best placed courses financially in the district. Although the land is an important asset for the club, selling the land could end up better for everyone involved. So now all that is needed is that one lucky buyer. “It’s an idyllic place to come and live, I’d virtually build a house and live here if I could,” says Graham.

A sporty new coupe from Hyundai will change the game this year. The three-door Veloster has just been launched in Korea. It’s expected in New Zealand late this year. Among its revolutionary design features are one door on the driver's side but two doors on the opposite side, allowing easy rear seat access. Veloster introduces a new 1.6-litre Gamma engine giving an impressive 6.2 l/100km, with a manual gearbox driven through the front wheels. An automatic transmission will return 6.5 l/100km. And Veloster bristles with hi-tech wizardry. “Hyundai designers wanted to create an eco-vehicle loaded with technology that also gives people the connectivity they have everywhere else these days,” explains Tom Ruddenklau, Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai New Zealand. “It has cost US$24 million over a 40-month period to develop Veloster – the car is a lot of fun but Hyundai is very serious about this project.” Veloster is part of Hyundai’s new communication brand in South Korea called ‘Premium Youth Lab’ to target the younger generation by offering premium emotional values. The hardcharging auto maker is limiting numbers available to retain exclusivity. Unlike past coupes using smaller rear-hinged access doors, Hyundai’s fresh take provides a conventionally-hinged door on the passenger side for safe and ready access to the surprisingly spacious rear seats. The passenger-side rear door handle is hidden to maintain the coupe design. “And with an interior size the best in its class, advanced safety technologies as standard, and sport-tuned electric power steering plus a suspension setup that’s world-class, Veloster is the coupe we are all waiting for,” said Mr Ruddenklau.

Alister Gregg can tell you a lot about confectionary. And it’s not because he has a sweet tooth; it’s because he’s run the canteen at the Saxton Stadium netball courts for the past eight years. Alister’s involvement with netball goes back further than this however, as his wife Dianne has been tied up with the administration for a number of years too. The Stoke resident will be stepping out of the canteen and passing along the keys just as soon as someone is appointed to replace him. Alister says the best part about the job in the popular canteen has been meeting the young ones. Several things have changed over the years though, including the complex where the netball is played. The construction of an indoor facility was an interesting thing to watch according to Alister, who says the size of the building now dwarfs the old building where the canteen is located. Stock the canteen sells to netball players and their supporters has also changed over the years, especially the prices. “I try my best to give something new each season,” says Alister. Being able to have his weekends back over the winter period is just one of the reasons Alister has decided to step down from his roll. He’s now hoping he will have a bit more time to himself. “We have three grandchildren in Christchurch and it’ll probably give me a bit more time to pop down there for a weekend to see them.” Alister says he will be sad to

leave the canteen. “I’m not leaving because I find anything wrong with the job. I’ll hopefully come along and at least have lunch upstairs sometimes.” There have been a number of interesting characters over the years according to Alister, including one who had issues with volume control. “I remember one little fella that used to yell, he didn’t really yell at me he just yelled when

he was ordering things, I guess he did annoy me but I didn’t say anything because he was a customer and then I thought at home he probably had to yell to make himself heard, so that gave me a different perspective.” It is possible Alister has served thousands and thousands of netball players and their families over the years and he says it is this, the interaction with the community, that he will miss the most.

RETIRING: Stoke resident Alister Gregg has been working full time in the canteen at the Saxton Fields netball courts since 2003. He will be handing over the keys as soon as someone else is appointed. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Which printer should I buy? Each week two photos of the museum’s “glass plate” collection will run in the Waimea Weekly with the goal of exposing the photographs to more people. Sometimes very little is known about these photos, so readers are invited to submit any information they may have to help with identification. Can you tell us anything? Do you recognise the people or the setting? Email details to or phone 548-9588. With so many options of printers and multifunctionals out there it is easy to get confused on what to buy. Too many times people see a cheap printer and buy it, not realising that to replace the cartridges is more expensive than buying the printer in the first place. Here at Cartridge World Nelson & Cartridge World Richmond we offer free advice when looking at purchasing a new printer or multifunction. We look at how much and what type of printing you are doing and what you might do in the future and give options on this whilst keeping an eye on the consumable costs. Then we will suit the printer or multifunction to your needs. If you purchase a printer or multi-

function from us and have an issue under warranty, we won’t just give you an 0800 number and tell you to ring it like many other retailers who market and sell printers, here at Cartridge World Nelson & Cartridge World Richmond we pride ourselves on our customer service and will handle all your warranty issues. We still believe if we sell it, then we are responsible for handling the warranty procedure for it. Cartridge World is the only retail franchise in New Zealand specialising in refilling and remanufacturing inkjet and laser cartridges for your printers, faxes and photocopiers. Printers & Printer Cartridges…. It’s what we do!

Guitar teacher has passion for New Zealand music Loyal by Dave Dobbyn has become a New Zealand anthem according to local music teacher Blair Mant. The Richmond resident has been immersed in music since he was 18 years-old and says jobs that don’t involve music “don’t click” for him. “They always make more sense when they are music related.” Blair’s passion for music is largely thanks to local New Zealand tunes such as Loyal and bands like Dragon, a kiwi rock group formed in 1972. Blair is currently in a five piece wedding corporate function band called Groove Collective. The music fanat-

ic teaches guitar to around 60 students a week, who range in age from six to 60. Being able to teach from home is also a positive for Blair, who says the flexibility this brings to his family life is great. “I’m not leaving at 8am and then back at 5pm, this way I get time with the kids.” Blair encourages Nelsonian’s to get into May Music Month and celebrate local music instead of purchasing tunes off the internet. For more information on Blair’s band or his guitar lessons contact him on 544-9303.

Mapua Waterfront Precinct An open forum to discuss the Mapua Waterfront Precinct will be held at the Mapua Boat Club on Wednesday 25 May 2011 from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm and 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm. As the Community is aware the Mapua Wharf area is important to the District and there have been a number of concerns and issues relating to these spaces and other adjacent sites. The Waterfront Park will provide a fantastic facility to the region and there is a need to ensure the adjacent areas provide an equally pleasant experience. Some work has already been done in 2008 and the team wants to hear of any other ideas as we start to plan the integration of the different spaces with the Waterfront Park. To do this we need your ideas, thoughts, concerns and input into this process. An open day is planned for 25 May 2011. Please come and gives us your constructive and positive views to improving this space. This meeting provides an opportunity for the community to look at the plans and discuss issues and ideas on a one-to-one basis with the advisory group and Tasman District councillors.

Back from the dead, man wakes up as family plans funeral Andrew Board The decision was made, David Currie’s family would not allow him to live life as a vegetable. They had come to accept medical advice that said he had only a one percent chance of living and if he did he would be blind, deaf and brain dead. They had made the horrific decision to turn off life support and moved him from Nelson Hospital to Nelson Hospice. After four days of no food or water, but increasing amounts of Morphine for pain, David’s family thought they had only about 10 hours left with their father, husband, brother and son. Then he woke up and said he was hungry. “That threw a spanner in the works,” jokes David’s brother Mark, who along with the rest of his grieving family was in a state of shock as the ambulance was called for and David moved back to Nelson Hospital. “We had all accepted that he was gone, we were already planning the funeral and he had been read his last rights by a local priest. We were braced to say goodbye.” In January 2009 David suffered a massive heart attack and two strokes simultaneously. It was enough to throw him from his bed, where he was sleeping, and onto the floor, wedging him between the bed and wall. His wife Wendy couldn’t lift or turn David as he laid face down, dead. It took ten minutes for St John to arrive and begin working on him, but another 30 minutes before he responded to CPR treatment.

LIVING LIFE TO THE FULL: David Currie with his wife Wendy and their three daughters Renee, 15, Maia, 6, and Nicole, 16. Photo: Andrew Board. David was dead for 40 minutes and for two full weeks after showed no signs of improvement. That fortnight was diarised by David’s eldest daughter Nicole, now 16. She goes into detail about the medication he was given, tubes going in, tubes going out, seizures, infection and family meetings, including the meeting six days after the heart attack where Dr Andrew Hamer told them “we don’t think he’s going to make it”. Mark says the feeling amongst the family was at its lowest then. “We all looked at each other and didn’t want to make that decision [to cut life support] then I said

to Wendy ‘let’s go get some fresh air’ and said what I thought we should do and she agreed.” Into his fifth day of palliative treatment, including no food or water, dehydration was setting in and his cracked lips were kept wetted with a gin and tonic-soaked cotton bud. His siblings, including a brother from England, were sitting around his bed at the Hospice, sharing a last gin and tonic with their brother. “That’s what did it I reckon,” jokes Mark. “He was just missing his alcohol.” Shortly after David woke up and said he was hungry. Family members rushed to get

nurses who were doubtful but one nurse enquired: “Hi David, my name is Kate”, he answered, “Hi Kate”. “Are you ok?”, she asked, “I’m alright.” “It was the most amazing feeling, we were all shocked, just shocked. The old bugger wasn’t finished yet,” says Mark. The elation, surprise and joy was overwhelming he says. “Our heads were just spinning, he was given no chance, none and here he was talking.” David was taken back to hospital and within days was sitting up, eating, drinking, talking and even scheming. Nicole was talking to her father when he asked about chocolate biscuits, she told him he might not be allowed it, “we’ll tricks the bastards,” he said. David, who works at Opus, says he certainly feels lucky to have survived. “The little things don’t bother me now, if something starts to annoy me I just laugh it off, it is nothing in the big picture.” And now David wants to give back. After struggling to do enough exercise he decided he needed a goal – the Buller half marathon. David will walk the 21km and hopes to raise money for two charity’s that mean the world to him, the Heart Foundation and Nelson Hospice. “They have both been pretty important for me and most people that use Hospice don’t have the opportunity to try and give back, I am so I thought it would be a good thing to do.” To donate visit DavidCurrie.

Texas hold ‘em poker back at Club Waimea Hold ‘em or fold ‘em? That is the latest question doing the rounds at Club Waimea as Texas Hold ‘Em Poker kicks back in to action. Texas Hold ‘Em Poker is another great social opportunity as well as a fast-paced game of skill, smarts and plenty of luck. A keen and enthusiastic group of local regulars have now set up their own section of this popular, exciting and continually growing version of poker. Every Friday, in the comfortable club facilities, regristration will start at 7pm with the games commencing at 7:30pm. Only chips are at stake, but players can choose to play for fun and points in a 10 week competition, or if they are over 18 years-old they can pay $5 and play for points and a share of a nightly pot, which will be divvied up between first, second and third place. So even if you don’t win the final of the poker, there is still plenty to be won. The rules and how to play are easy to learn. Any of the regulars will encourage

and help beginners who are prepared to have a go. Yet, the standards and patterns used will enable the braver or more talent to take part in major competitions around the country. Texas Hold’Em Poker is not new to Club Waimea. Three years the “Super League” franchise started with immediate success. Two keen players ventured to Auckland to compete and one even came back with the top prize of $10,000. The following year 13 of the Club’s regulars went up to the National Champion of Champions competition, and the Nelson competitors took out the trifecta of first, second and third. Excitment is instant. All players start with the same number of chips and the winner is the one who finishes the evening with all of them. This means that everyone else gets into a position of “all in” where all their remaining chips are at risk. The result is nearly always in doubt until the last of the five community cards are tabled.

READY TO GO: A group of Club Waimea members get in to Texas Hold’em Poker on Friday night. Sign up this week.

The way the Texas hold’em poker game is played, it is not really gambling. It is a blend of luck, skill, psychology, which is why our fearsome lady members play as well. This game is just like life. In the end it’s not about the cards you are dealt, it’s the way you play them.

LUCKY WINNER: Club manager John Hewison hands members draw winner Jennifer Coad her prize.

Lucky Jennifer wins $1400 A staggering $1400 was up for grabs last Thursday in the Members Weekly Draw and after weeks of absences we finally found our winner. Jennifer Coad received the cheque and was “absolutely thrilled” to have won. Members no. 346, no. 1431, and no. 1002 will be kicking themselves with all three having their numbers called out in recent weeks but were absent on the evening. Remember you have to be at the Club to win, and you could be, like Jennifer, walking home $1400 richer. The draw will start again at $200 this week.

Crystal Ball dishes up prizes galore Crystal Ball continues to gather pace as one of the Club’s most popular games. When you see some of the prizes on offer, it’s easy to understand why. Scenic flights, mystery weekends and even the packet of peanuts, do you take the cash or the prize? Prizes range in value up to $1000. Every Friday night at the Club, don’t miss out on the fun. So far, members have received some incredible prizes. On April 21 winner no. 110 decided on the envelope and walked away with a voucher thanks to sponsor Westmeat. But a week later, no. 30 was persuaded by the $100 cash. Curiosity got the better of no. 17 who took the envelope. But

they would be very happy with the $100 Nelson Building Society voucher they left with. But just last week, member no. 1 was stuck with a booby prize, the packet of chips. I hope they were hungry! Crystal Ball is a simple, fun and exciting game full of surprise and joy. Come play this week. Crystal Ball is sponsored by : Club Waimea, NBS, Impressions, Southern Hospitality, Noel Leeming, Bays Brewery, Westmeat, Stirling Sports, Rod Clark Jewellers, Richmond Vehicle Testing Station. Please consider these sponsors when you trade.

Get down boogie ...

Sporting their brand new playing strip, these local Waimea Plains youngsters were not put off by the wet, muddy conditions on their opening day for the 2011 season. These 10th Graders, the Waimea Plains Bullets, receive last minute instructions from Coach, Paul Milson, at Lord Rutherford Park. Pictured are from left Flynn Reif, Ben Morgan, Zak Milson, Olly Berryman, Shaun Beer, Zane de Joux, Jack Quarmby, Oren Harwood, and Joe Hilton with coach Paul Milson and manager Ann Morgan. The History of Brightwater Mural Each month we will be putting in a snippet about the Mural. We have highlighted a potion of the sketch and will give you a little information about it. Marie Greeks who is both an artist and resident of Brightwater has drawn the sketch for the Mural. The flour mill built by Alfred Saunders in 1855, was powered Your Local Glass Specialists

by a water wheel which drove granite mill stones measuring one metre across. Mr John Rutherford later owned the mill and changed it to a roller mill. In 1904 a big flood occurred that resulted in significant damage to the mill. After the flood Mr Trapnell took possession of the mill and after repairs, it was working again within three months. He won many prizes with his “Radium Brand”.


Brightwater Playcentre will be holding a fundraising Disco for pre schoolers on Friday July 8th - grab the family and come down for a boogie! For details phone Lucy Pearson on 541 8585. Food and Drink will be available. Entry is by gold coin donation per family. Brightwater Playcentre is open Monday to Friday from 9.30 to 12noon.

TOUGH MATCH: Waimea College player James DeHamel presses forward with the ball as Gareth Palmer waits in the wings as support. Photo: Phillip Rollo.


Controversy causes College heartbreak Phillip Rollo Last minute heartbreak denied Waimea College first XV of a famous victory over Press Cup rivals Nelson College. Up 13-5 with eight minutes remaining, a controversial try to Nelson College looks likely to shadow Saturday’s game, with suggestions the Nelson ball-carrier knocked the ball on over the line. A 40 meter penalty from fullback Luca Roden just moments later catapulted the roller-coaster of emotions back in favour of the away side, until a five pointer in the DivorceCare is a dying minutes to Nelspecial weekly son's halfback Mitchell seminar and support Drummond pushed the group for people who are separated or score to 20-16, giving divorced.

Nelson the win. Playing against his former suitors, flanker Steven Soper was sent to the sin bin in the first half as Nelson cracked under the enormous pressure, while Waimea dominated every aspect of the play. Some good follow up gifted Fletcher Matthews a try in the first half from a wayward penalty kick. Waimea take on South Island champions St Bedes at home this weekend from 12 noon and manager Jim Matthews say the boys are looking forward to the challenge. “We thought Nelson was going to be tougher but this game will be huge.”

Wanderers get set for club day

These days the Wanderers club room is a hive of activity. With the addition of several new sporting codes recently, the club rooms based at Centennial Park in Brightwater will see hundreds turn out for the annual club day this Saturday. Rugby league, football, netball and senior and junior rugby all feature at the club over winter and this weekend will see all of these athletes come together to celebrate the uniqueness that is Wanderers. Wanderers have only one senior rugby team which play in division two of the Car Company senior rugby competition.

FUEL PRICE DROP! Tom & Melanie are proud to supply and fully service the Wanderers Rugby Club van.

This team will be playing at home against Collingwood on Saturday from 2pm, which promises to be a tough match for the blue and gold. The division two team has had to start fresh this season after losing 14 players from last year. Senior coach Lachie Taylor, who is assisted by Aaron Everett, says although the team is young they are pretty competitive. “Hopefully they’ll keep it up.” Junior rugby has also got off to a great start. JAB chairman Ant Strange says this year Wanderers has 14 teams playing in the junior competition, which is equal to around 200 players. Ant says the Wanderers JAB teams have a lot of coaches and managers for the teams and they

have been doing a great job so far. Making things easier this season is the new addition of a second ground at Lord Rutherford Park in Brightwater. “We now have two paddocks in one patch, which we’ve aimed for over the last few years. Things can become hard due to space so rather than have the kids spread out we’ll be able to have them all in the one place,” says club administrator Diane Drogemuller. Wakefield also host games to ease the burden. Wanderers netball is also coming along in leaps and bounds this season. The Wanderers A squad is a new team this year and the girls haven’t played together prior to this season and have spent the first couple of games finding their feet. “We’ve started off really great though,” says player coach Sam Lowe. The season has started with Wanderers A playing in the Senior 1 competition and Sam says the girls are hoping to lift the team back up to premier level. Local woman Kathryn Orange has come on board as cocoach with Sam. The club also has a new B team which features a number of school girls, mainly from Waimea College.

WEDNESDAY 18 May 2011

The C team is coached by Aleisha Cederman and is made up of the same girls as last season. There are also two social teams playing for Wanderers Netball this year, the Phoenix and the Titans. The Wanderers Retro, a master’s league team, also play on a Thursday night. Sam says all the girls are hoping for a great season of netball and are aiming for promotion up into higher grades after the first round. Also new to the club this year are the Syn Media Wanderers Wolves. Rugby league is relatively new to the Tasman area and the team was established to lift the presence of the sport in the Richmond, Brightwater and Wakefield areas. Wanderers Sports Club has come on board and has been able to give the Wolves access to the latest training equipment and state of the art facilities. Those that play rugby league with the Wolves are eligible to play for the Tasman Titans and for other representative teams. Trainings are held every Monday and Wednesday from 6.30pm. For more information contact Stu on 027-5009979.


Football has also been recently introduced to the club in the form of the Brightwater Bogans. Although they officially fall under the banner of Richmond Athletic, Bogans player Hayden Bryant says his team appreciates the support of the Wanderers. The club welcomes all members of the community to come along to club day this Saturday from 10am. On the day there will be Mr Whippy, raffles, a goal kicking competition and a BBQ and refreshments will be available. The netball, soccer and league teams are all playing away from home, but will be back to the club when their respective games have finished. A hangi will be available in the evening for $5 along with live music from local band Dog On A Bonnet. Diane believes the club day at Wanderers Sports Club is always a “buzzy” day. “We like to open our club rooms to the community to give everyone a chance to see what we do as a club,” she says.

Tickets are $10 per person for a team of eight. For more information phone Donna ChingTregidga on 021-126-2058.

In the Grade 1 game Richmond Wakatu Hotel B jumped out to a great start against Nayland College A when they were up 14 – 9 after twenty minutes of play. Nayland College came out in the third quarter a different team to outscore Richmond 10 – 5 and level the score. Crucial turnovers which Richmond were able to convert by courtesy of goal attack Melissa Marfell enabled Richmond to claim the 28 25 win. The defensive line up of Dana Clark, Hayley Campbell and Janelle Macgregor were instrumental in the win as they worked tirelessly as a unit. Waimea College 9A made every post a winning post when they handed out a 38 - 14 scoreline to Nelson College 9A in the Collegiate 1 grade. Waimea dominated in every facet of play. Coach Ann Wicken says the game was a real pleasure to watch. There was great movement through court, nice straight lines and her girls drove well onto the ball. Ann was pleased she had the opportunity to try different combinations and each and every one of her players stepped up to the mark. BIG WIN: Waimea College 9A centre Ruby Jensen collects Waimea’s defensive trio of a pass in her sides big win over Nelson College. Photo: AnGeorgia Davies, Hannah drew Board.

Davenhill and Hannah Taylor were outstanding as they limited Nelson’s opportunities. Centre Ruby Jensen had a superb game – she was lively on attack and strong on defence. The three shooters – Katie Ditzel, Emily O’Connor and Morgan Inch all returned commendable statistics of over 80 percent. In the Junior Grade 1 match, Waimea Intermediate 8A outplayed Nelson Prep Gold to win 41 – 11. Waimea are fortunate in having the nucleus of last year’s well preformed 7A team on which to build a platform. Although there was a settling in period, the girls soon found their rhythm with Hana Tava leading the charge through the mid court. She was great off the line and displayed speed and class on the feed - maybe she has picked up a thing or two from Mum, Miranda! Defender Michaela Kerr read the game well, was keen to hunt the ball and pulled in a number of well timed intercepts. UMPIRING APPOINTMENTS Four Nelson Centre umpires – Mary Ellis, Kate Smith, Marie Smith and Deb Vincent have been appointed to umpire at the New Zealand Age Group Tournament to be held in Nelson in July.

Waimea Old Boys 2011

WOB put on winning weekend - again Trael Joass must have wanted to have his first legal taste of alcohol with something to celebrate. The flying winger took to the field and scored two tries for Waimea Old Boys on his 18th birthday last Saturday. The Stables Tavern Waimea division one team went on to beat Huia 36-18 thanks to the brace. Coach Mark Milne believes Saturday’s game was definitely a step up from the previous week. “We were very happy to score four tries but there are still areas we can improve on and we have been working hard to make sure this happens.”

Top performances were put in by Todd Bavin and Scott McKenzie in the forwards and in the backs Andrew Lethan had another stunner and Alex Lean worked well with him. Phil Gibson also worked wonders. The Super Liquor Waimea Old Boys division two team also secured a win over the weekend. In much improved conditions from the previous weekend Waimea were able to open the game up and play a style and at a pace which the Huia team struggled to contain. Waimea’s forward pack laid a good platform for the backline to operate from, TRY TIME: Birthday boy andStables Tavern Waimea Old Boys division one player Trael Joass dives over the try line as a Huia player attempts to stop him.

constantly making inroads into Huia’s defence, allowing the backs to receive front-foot ball and catching the Huia defence out of position on numerous occasions. Another strong performance from flanker Jesse Walker saw him pick up a hat-trick of tries, young prop Thomas Williams picked up the man of the match award after another strong display while wingers Mitchell Bateman and Ben Jeffrey were heavily involved throughout the match. Second five John Higgins also impressed with his hard straight runCHARGE: Stables Tavern Waimea Old Boys division one player ning in the mid field. Goal Sam Prattley makes a charge up the field.
