CRICKET Customs stop retailer’s stock Phillip Rollo

A breakfast battle between Sanitarium and Richmond retailer Bob Wren is still ongoing with the New Zealand owned company going straight to customs to stop infringed product entering the country. As first reported by the Waimea Weekly, English Bob’s Emporium owner Bob Wren was told by Sanitarium in April that he must remove all of his imported Weetabix and Marmite off the shelf or it would

seek legal action as the product infringed a copyright held by the brand. The article was picked up by media all around the country including The New Zealand Herald, the Otago Daily Times, Radio Live and TV3. Sanitarium did not follow up its legal threats so Bob continued to stock both the Weetabix and Marmite. Rob Savage, the owner of an English warehouse in Christchurch, told Campbell Live late last month that nearly 2000 jars of

Page 23

his Marmite were seized by New Zealand Customs when entering the country because it breached the same trademark. It is believed some of that Marmite, which arrived under the name “Maamite” belongs to Bob. Bob refused to comment on the issue. Sanitarium did not return multiple phone calls by the Waimea Weekly but did release a statement on their website regarding the issue. It stated: “Sanitarium encourages competition and is not opposed to

the products under question. Our actions are simply designed to protect the trade marks that we have invested in developing over the last 80 years. We would note that the English Marmite product is already freely available in New Zealand under the “Our Mate” trademark, so English expats can enjoy the “taste of England” without contravening New Zealand owned trademarks.

Pig dog problem for local SPCA

A young farm pig is recovering well after it was attacked by pig dogs near Dovedale last week, but Nelson SPCA manager Donna Walzl says it is just the latest incident it has had to deal with involving pig dogs. The pig, named Pepper by SPCA staff, was found by locals after it was mauled by the dogs, having strayed from its enclosure. Donna says its life was saved because of the actions of those that found it and they are still looking for its owners. She says the incident wasn’t the dogs, or dog owners, fault but highlights increasing problems with pig dog owners. Recently the centre has had a spike in the number of Pepper the three month old pig at the Nelson SPCA with manager Donna Walzl and animal welfare inspector unwanted pig dogs or pig dog Craig Crowley.

the centre and they are very hard to rehome, says Donna. “We often have dogs surrendered which are failed pig dogs and therefore have had little or no family interaction, no house training and even no concept of walking on a lead.” She says most pig dog owners are very good at controlling breeding and looking after their dogs but she would like to see them help to educate younger hunters who are the main culprits. “We’re very concerned by the latest trends and it isn’t fair to the dogs. We’ve had to put some down due to disease and have really struggled to find homes for others. The SPCA isn’t a dumping ground for unwanted pig dogs,” she says.

“In a measure to protect these long-standing trademarks, as part of standard screening processes for bulk imports, New Zealand Customs are checking containers of imported goods to ensure they do not infringe existing Weet-Bix and Marmite trademarks, as of June 2012. “Since 1921 and 1929 respectively, Sanitarium has held the trademarks for Marmite and Weet-Bix in New Zealand and invested in the continued growth of these brands.” Sanitarium general manager Pierre van Heerden told the Waimea Weekly in April that selling Weetabix in New Zealand breached a trademark held by the company. He added that Weet-Bix could not be sold in England for similar reasons. “We own the trademark in New Zealand and spend a lot of money in marketing those trademarks. So anyone else bringing in products of similar names or similar trademarks are infringing those under New Zealand law.” Sanitarium ordered Weetabix off the shelves of the English Corner Shop in Auckland’s Onehunga in 2010.

Tasman District Council will pull tens of thousands of dollars out of its roading budget to fix a problem cycle ramp. The northern end of the new suspension bridge that connects Hope and Brightwater on the Great Taste Cycle Trail has come under fire from some cyclists that had crashed coming down it. The Nelson-Tasman Cycle Trails Trust erected a sign warning cyclists that they must walk their bikes when coming down the steep gradient. But the council has gone one step further and will “soften” the gradient on both ends of the bridge by lengthening the two off ramps. The Brightwater end will also lose its 90 degree right angle in favour of a ramp that goes directly onto the river bank. TDC communications manager Chris Choat says the off ramps will be “a lot easier” for cyclists. However, the message is still clear that everyone must walk their bikes up and down it. “We’re making it easier but it’s still a bridge that needs to be walked onto,” he says. “It was a nationally accepted design that was built within a budget. It hasn’t worked here so we’re making minor alterations for our users and their expectations.” The changes will be made before mid October by the same contractors that will construct a suspension bridge over the Waimea River, near the Appleby Bridge.

Bus campaign a success Nelson Police have labelled a campaign targeting speeding past school buses as a success, despite road user’s “lack of knowledge to begin with”. Last week a police speed gun showed an alarming statistic that just two per cent of drivers during an hour on Main Rd Stoke actually slowed down to the 20 km/h speed limit when overtaking a parked school bus. Constable Carol Heiford says people are “definitely more aware” of the law as a result of last week’s campaign. “If it’s not in your every day world then you do forget about it.

Rural drivers are more aware of it and certainly people with children are more aware of it,” she says. Eight days later on the same location of Main Rd Stoke, 375 out of 450 drivers exceeded 20 km/h. The 20 km/h speed is only required for school buses (there needs to be a sign on the back of the bus saying “school bus”) and only when the bus is completely stopped. Drivers can pass at normal speed if the bus is slowing down to stop but hasn’t stopped. The speed of 20 km/h is for vehicles travelling in both directions.

Students struggle with new language

Phillip Rollo The principal of the region’s first Maori immersion school has likened the first weeks of term to dropping a child in the middle of Rome. Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Tuia te Matangi opened seven weeks ago and the hardest task to date has been building a word foundation in te reo Maori. Those challenges have affected parents and students of the kura (school). Some of the parents don’t even come into the school grounds because they are unable to speak the language. The task of learning and teaching in full immersion has been “very challenging,” according to principal Merita Waitoa-Paki, but she remains confident that the children can only improve. “It’s frustrating. I had kids go to me ‘what are you saying, what are you going on about?’ It’s like dropping a kid in the middle of Rome and it not being able to speak the language of that country,” says Merita. “But we were expecting this to be very challenging.” The principal’s office is the only room on site where people are allowed to speak English, but they are only allowed to speak it if it is absolutely

necessary – which has been a problem for parents. “There has to be a reason why they’re speaking English and we put that in place for visitors who obviously can’t speak Maori. We encourage our whanau to speak one word, two words and to use body language. The tamariki (children) need to see the parents are role modelling it.” Students took part in an hour presentation on what they had learnt since the school opened, last week. This highlighted the progress some students had made in te reo. “That was the first show that parents and these children have been part of that has all been in reo. There was no English at all. Within the seven weeks there has definitely been development in individual tamariki.” Staff have had to be “really creative” in the way they teach at the school to ensure children can understand what they are learning, whilst also picking up what is to become their number one language. The kura is situated between the Richmond Church of Christ and Salisbury School. It was built for $4 million at the Ministry of Education’s expense.

Ranzau students enter ad awards A group of media students at Ranzau School have entered into the Fair Go Ad Awards, hoping they can get themselves and the school on the small screen. The theme that the students had to sell in their advert was colour. Teacher Megan Adamson says the group decided to utilise the school colour of yellow, which also symbolises sunny Nelson. “We started brain storming ideas about what yellow means and what it represents,” says Megan. “But we don’t want to give too much away.” It is the first time Ranzau School has entered in the annual competition, which co-

incides with the television’s shows special program highlighting the best and worst television advertisements of the past 12 months. Hampden St in Nelson has won this particular section before and Megan was aware of other local schools that had done well. The students involved in the project have a background in multi media. They have filmed Ranzau School’s “term news” which highlights what the Hope school has been doing during the course of each term. The finalists for the Fair Go Ad Awards will be screened on TV, before it goes to a public vote.

Nelson City Council will today discuss the possibility of hosting at least one cricket world cup match in 2015. Nelson mayor Aldo Miccio says the council could be keen to see some ICC Cricket World Cup games played at Saxton Oval after the successful hosting of three Rugby World Cup games in the city last year. The council will discuss the matter this today in a public-excluded meeting. “We have the resources and the knowledge after last year’s Rugby World Cup so it would be great to put those to good use. We have made no decisions yet, but what a great spot we are in to maximise what we learnt off the Rugby World Cup,” says Aldo. Tasman District mayor Richard Kempthorne says TDC would have to sit down at discuss a potential bid at length before making a decision to support it. He says there would be some regional benefit but TDC has not historically included a major events budget. Bid deadlines are early next year for the tournament which will take place in New Zealand and Australia from October to December, 2015. After today’s meeting the Nelson City Council will decide whether to proceed with an application or drop it altogether.

Kiwi Flyer premieres on the big screen Andrew Board

Forget Hollywood, Bollywood or even Wellywood, last night was all about Nellywood. The red carpet was rolled out at the Theatre Royal yesterday for the world premiere of the movie Kiwi Flyer, a family movie shot in Nelson and featuring a host of Nelsonians and the city’s famous Collingwood St Trolley Derby. Stars Dai Henwood, Vince Martin and Tandi Wright gathered with director Tony Simpson and Nelson actors Brittany Dick, Myer van Gosliga, Matt French and David de Thierry for the premiere. Another Nelson actor Doug Colling is in London so wasn’t at the showing. The event had a distinctly Nelson theme with the Nelson Pipe Band playing on the balcony and the stars arriving in cars from the World of Wearable Art and Classic Car Museum. The film is about a boy’s journey to compete in the Collingwood St Trolley Derby. He must overcome a loan shark, a nasty rival and a mum who doesn’t share his vision of trolley derby glory. The red carpet event was held at 6:30pm last night before the premiere at 7.30pm.

Tony, a former Nelson man who wrote the script and directed the film, says he has been overwhelmed with the support Nelson has shown the movie. “Everyone just totally understood what I was trying to do, embraced it and made it so easy to do things. Even in the film Nelson is almost one of the characters in the movie. Everywhere we turned the camera it just looked fantastic.” Tony says he is currently signing a deal with a North American company to distribute the film in North America and the rest of the world and he is excited about tonight’s premiere. “I’m nervous and excited, this is the home crowd and I know that they will probably be fairly biased but I’m just so thrilled to be able to share it with them because it’s really not just my movie but their movie as well.” President of the Nelson club Tim Bayley says he was excited to see the movie on the big screen and was extra excited after the announcement Monday night that Nelson is set to host the New Zealand Trolley Grand Prix and has declared itself as the Trolley Derby Capital of New Zealand.

Scholarship up for grabs

Phillip Rollo

A cheque of $1000 could be heading the way of one talented Nelson teenager. Entries close on September 29 for McGlashen Pharmacy’s annual Young Achiever Scholarship. Applicants must be 16 years old or under (as of September 30 2012), live within the Nelson-Tasman region and show a promising future in their chosen field based on previous results. The scholarship has been held annually since the pharmacy opened its doors on Queen St for the past three years. Previous winners include sailor Phillippa Wood, cyclist Tom Nicholson and Abbey Phillips of SFRQ national winners The Peasants.

Pharmacy owner Andrew McGlashen says the scholarship is open to all fields, including sports, arts and drama. The age restriction was put in place because persons above the age of 16 are able to find employment and work for money. “It’s hard to get from anywhere. I wanted to put all of the money towards one scholarship to make it really worth while and help someone achieve exactly what they want to achieve,” says Andrew. “The past winners have been really grateful for it and it has helped them out.” Entries forms can be picked up from your local school or at McGlashen Pharmacy. Once entered, applicants will have to wait four weeks before the winner is drawn in November. It is possible that the process will include an interview.

Bridget Budget answers your questions

Q: After paying off my Mum’s funeral I don’t want my kids to have to pay for mine. What is the best way to save for this? A: If you can pay ahead for your own funeral, it will ease the financial burden on your family when you die. I would suggest:  Know the cost of a funeral  Decide how much you can afford to pay  Investigate all options-including natural burials which can save you a lot of money  Start a saving account in your bank or with a funeral director of your choice  Investigate funeral insurance options  Talk with you family about your plans, and what you and they want It is important to have funds available to your next of kin as soon as you die so that funeral expenses can be paid. If you have savings for a funeral, then make sure they can access these. Your estate may take a while to be wound-up so your money may be unavailable for some time.

Students get experimental during science fair Sinead Ogilvie

Measuring the diameter of blood drops isn’t your usual after school activity, but if you’re an entrant in the Cawthron Science Fair, anything goes. The fair allows local science students to examine a question or problem that interests them and put to the test their own theories. The projects can be quite complex, and after conducting their own research the students ultimately come to a conclusion on the matter. Four Waimea College year 13 students have entered in the popular science fair taking place today, and their projects have been inspired from a CSI episode, to real life situations. Courtney Russ found her project “Absorb me maybe” at her church, where panels at the back of the room were installed to absorb sound for live performances. “I wondered whether high pitched or low pitched sound

before even beginning his project to settle on his subject. The students all agreed that while coming up against issues in the research and experiment process was frustrating, the end product is rewarding. “When you finish it you feel really good, the hard work pays off.” The science fair is a famous Nelson event that attracts over 60 entries and is strongly supported by our local schools. Paul Nistor, who is head of the science department at Waimea College, says the science fair is a great opportunity for the students to meet like minded people. “It’s an awesome chance for the students to meet others interested in science, and open those networks up for university next year.” Fifty judges will examine the students’ projects, and winners can take a share of the major prizes that are up for grabs. The science fair begins today with the judging of projects and will be open to view for the public Thursday through Saturday at the Ernest Rutherford Retirement Village.

Successful Season Draws To A Close Club Waimea Indoor Bowls

Our Indoor Bowling season is quickly coming to an end and we will celebrate our success at an end of season dinner and trophies presentation at Club Waimea on Sunday 30 September. This has been another busy season for the Indoor Bowlers with good player attendance at our regular club nights on a Monday evening in the Club Waimea Hall. Our season commenced early in February with a full program of social, club and interclub tournaments scheduled throughout the year. It is pleasing to see that once again Club Waimea have had a good number of players selected to play for the Nelson Indoor Bowling Association. Not only are they in representative matches against other area Indoor Bowling Associations within the South Island but

also against the touring North Island Indoor Bowls Representative Team. The highlight of the season for our Club was the hosting of the Clubs NZ South Island Indoor Bowling Championships over the Easter weekend. This tournament was a great success and some excellent Indoor Bowls were played, with Club Waimea Indoor Bowlers featuring successfully in some events. Club Waimea players saved their best effort for the Triples and Fours events, winning the Triples Championship Trophy with a team lead by Jean McKenzie with Lewis Della Bosca, and Kevin McKenzie. Jean McKenzie then lead a team to win the Fours Championship Trophy, which included Lewis Della Bosca , Kevin McKenzie and Nathan Della Bosca .

These wins were followed up by the Club Waimea Ladies Triples team Rhonda Bellis, Pat Carrick and Daphne Paki winning the Clubs NZ Women’s National Championship played at Pukekohe in July. This is the second year in a row that Club Waimea has won this tournament, a fine achievement by our Ladies. Indoor Bowls is a game for everyone that can be played either socially or as competitively as you want. It is a cheap sport to play with no special equipment or clothing required other than flat soled shoes. Our 2013 Season will be starting mid February and instruction and coaching is available for new members. If you would like more information on the Indoor Bowling Section at Club Waimea then please contact Athol Curtis on 544 8046

Check Out Squash at Club Waimea Waimea Squash Club

The weather has been terrible throughout winter, and it’s not over yet. Fortunately squash is a great game to play at any time of year, regardless of how hard the rain’s coming down outside. It’s the ultimate indoor sport for fitness and enjoyment. Waimea Squash Club is situated towards the back of the Club Waimea complex. The club boasts 4 modern glass back courts and has the largest squash membership in the Tasman/Nelson region. The club caters for all membership types from junior, social, family, and senior. The Waimea Squash Club has a proud history and has produced NZ champions. The club caters for all players no matter the skill level, for both social and competitive players there are regular activities during the year including social leagues, club nights, tournaments, and interclub. There’s also a national grading system that means no matter what a players level they can participate in any type of competitive play. The club has a healthy junior programme, with regular coaching and activities from 7yrs up. Some Waimea Club juniors are in national development squads, with one junior a member

of the New Zealand national under 17 team. Rated among the best sports in the world for fitness (Forbes has rated squash as number 1), squash is also convenient and loads of fun. Here’s a quick refresher as to why it’s so important for us to keep healthy and fit: 1. Keep excess pounds at bay Combined with a healthy diet, aerobic exercise helps you lose weight — and keep it off. 2. Increase your stamina Aerobic exercise may make you tired in the short term. But over the long term, you’ll enjoy increased stamina and reduced fatigue. 3. Ward off viral illnesses Aerobic exercise activates your immune system. This leaves you less susceptible to minor viral illnesses, such as colds and flu. 4. Reduce your health risks Aerobic exercise reduces the risk of many conditions, including obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke and certain types of cancer. Weight-bearing aerobic exercises, such as walking, reduce the risk of osteoporosis. 5. Manage chronic conditions Aerobic exercise helps lower high blood pressure and control blood sugar. If

you’ve had a heart attack, aerobic exercise helps prevent subsequent attacks. 6. Strengthen your heart A stronger heart doesn’t need to beat as fast. A stronger heart also pumps blood more efficiently, which improves blood flow to all parts of your body. 7. Keep your arteries clear Aerobic exercise boosts your highdensity lipoprotein (HDL or “good”) cholesterol and lowers your low-density lipoprotein (LDL or “bad”) cholesterol. The potential result? Less buildup of plaques in your arteries. 8. Boost your mood Aerobic exercise can ease the gloominess of depression, reduce the tension associated with anxiety and promote relaxation. 9. Stay active and independent as you age Aerobic exercise keeps your muscles strong, which can help you maintain mobility as you get older. Aerobic exercise also keeps your mind sharp. At least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise three days a week seems to reduce cognitive decline in older adults. 10. Live longer Studies show that people who participate in regular aerobic exercise live longer than those who don’t exercise regularly.

Brightwater Community Newsletter

Welcome to our September Newsletter, Here we are into September already and the rain just seems to keep on coming with the odd couple of days of fine sunny weather thrown in, just to keep us hoping that warmer, sunnier

days are just around the corner. Hope you all have made it through the winter without too much flu and winter ills and chills. We had our meeting recently and we were very pleased to be able to welcome along the Mayor, Richard Kempthorne and the CEO of Tasman

District Council, Lindsay McKenzie. It was great to have them along, and for us to bring them up to speed with things Brightwater. The Mayor spoke to us about some of the issues that the TDC is facing, rezoning and the hardship that is placing some people under and maintaining local roads to an acceptable level that has been in the news recently to name a couple.

Do you all know about the Heritage Leaflet that is available with all the historic points of Brightwater on it? It has been updated and we are about to send it off to the printers to be printed and it will then be available to the public for a gold coin. We were able to put a photo of the Mural on it. Work is still in progress on the BMX Track –we need more clay to put the finishing touches, and

plans for a safety fence are under way. There will be a working bee at some stage to finish it up so please watch this space if you are interested in helping with this. The track is being well used in the mean time – this is great to hear. Our next meeting is on Tuesday 2 October in the Brightwater School Staffroom, at 7.30pm. We look forward to seeing you there.

200 children again playing football for the club, whether learning the game with the First Kicks program run by Alan & Marion Mathews every Friday afternoon, or playing in the 17th Grade in the morning with Steve Hammond before participating in senior football in the afternoon, all enjoyed their football experience this season. This season our prize-giving is again being held at the Spring Grove Hall on Sunday 23 September, where it has been held successfully for the last couple of years. With a couple of the recent weekends being rained off, for many teams there won’t have been an opportunity to get together at the end of the season, so we are looking forward to seeing many enthusiastic members coming out to celebrate the football season. The Spring Grove Hall provides a great venue for the prize-giving where players will receive participation Certificates and individual trophies, followed by a lunch and a final kick-around. A special thanks to all the coaches and managers who supported and organised teams this year, with the increase in player numbers and players new to the game, it was your support and encouragement that made all teams successful in players enjoying the game. Also thanks to all the parents and supporters, who get the children to and from practices and games, and continue to help Waimea Plains Junior Football Club grow in the region. Waimea Plains Junior Football Club encompasses players from throughout the smaller towns of the region, including Appleby, Brightwater, Hope, Ranzau, Tapawera and Wakefield. With the continued growth of football in New Zealand, I am sure that we will see an increased number of players and teams in Waimea Plains colours next year. Pinegrove Kindergarten Mega Raffle Winners The Mega Raffle has been running for the entire month of August. Excitement has been building up with a prize drawn on each day of the month leading up to the grand prize

of a three day motor-home hire generously donated by Bee Free Motorhomes in Brightwater. The prizegiving ceremony was a celebration of not only the final prize but also of the hard work the families have contributed to selling their tickets, acknowledges the generosity of our sponsors and the organisation and support of the Family Liaison Group. The family liaison group is a voluntary group and the Kindergarten relies heavily on fundraising through initiatives such as the Mega Raffle to support a range on initiatives within the Kindergarten. Chairperson Emma Nicholson has been working hard to accumulate as much support as she possibly can along with her fellow liaison group members, and some of the sponsorship has come from these families themselves. All the proceeds will go towards office furnishing to support the Administrators role in the brand new office extension completed in April of this year. There is a sustainable focus on tonight’s event as families have been asked to bring a bread roll filling to share in a re-usable container. As members of Enviroschools programme run by under the Tasman District Council, this is one of the ways the teaching team has been able to significantly reduce waste and promote awareness of healthy food choices for children and families at Pinegrove Kindergarten. The winner of the Grand Prize was awarded to Shelley Holmes – a parent at the Kindergarten. She was heading home to plan a weekend away. Thanks to everyone for your support of this wonderful fundraising event. Prize winners are Tanya Mc Murtrie, Annemarie Koevoet, Chanrathy, Donna Todd, Sue Bohan Carter, Tracey Sowerbutts, Justine Ward, Soong Family, Nate, Lucy Routledge, Margaret Fraser, Colin Hoskins, Bensemann Family, Michelle Dodunski, Sport Tasman RCC, Sport Tasman RCC, Jason Stewart, Luise, P Taylor, Rachel McNaughton, Megan, Mike Mitchell,

Mitchell Neal, Kurt Malietoa and faithful hunting companion Fern look very happy with their catch of two good-sized boars. Both lads are keen supporters of Wanderers and played for the club’s JAB before joining college rugby teams. Adults need to jump into the action in the senior section; categories include heaviest boar, second heaviest boar, best tusks and heaviest stag. The top spot for the seniors will go to average weight, with a prize to the value of $1000 sponsored by Excavator World, Hokitika. The hunter who caught the pig must be there to weigh it in, and to keep things fair late entries will not be accepted for weigh in after 3pm. To claim your prize and the victory you must be present at the judging and prize giving. The Saturday will not only be about the judging and prize giving as the good times will be continuing throughout the night, with weigh master for the event, Antoni Neal, performing with his band “Dog On a Bonnet” at the clubrooms afterwards. Don’t forget, you can bring the kids down to enjoy the day as this will be a fun family event with a pig carrying and wood chopping competition to keep the festivities going!

Each hunter can enter up to two pigs but can only take home one major prize (not including the Rugby Club Challenge Trophy).

Heads must be attached and the pig must be hung on the racks until the end of the weigh in. Get on board and give the junior rugby player’s season a great send off.

The Pig Hunt Challenge is going to be an awesome event, so put your rugby boots away and get your hunting gear out; it’s time for one last match! This will be an annual event so if you win this challenge, you’ll be back to defend your title next year.

Nelson lands NZ championship

The biggest event in the speedway calendar is coming to Nelson this season and it’s bringing 6000 spectators with it. The New Zealand Home Loans NZ Super Stock Championship will be held on January 11 and 12 and is certain to sell out. Accommodation is already filling up on the nights of the championship. Tahuna Beach Holiday Park Speedway president Kris Carpenter believes it is a big coup for the association. “It definitely will sell out. We’re expecting 6000 spectators per night. This is really big for the region. I’ve travelled around and watched this event for the last five seasons and there are plenty of regulars that will do the same,” says Kris. Representatives from each speedway association bid for New Zealand, South and North Island events at a national conference each year. Because it landed the biggest event in the speedway calendar, Top of the South Speedway representatives

pulled the pin on bidding for other key events. “They’re quite hard to get, you have to have people voting for you and we’ve got such a good reputation of running a good championship that we pipped someone else. This event comes around every 15 years and we’ve managed to get it again in just eight or nine.” The NZ Super Stock Championship was last held in Nelson in 2004. Nelson drivers have a great history of success in the championship with one of the country’s top competitors, Craig Boote, looking to add further glory to his already illustrious career. Former 1NZ Dale Ewers will be one of the early favourites while it would be no surprise to see Brett Nicholls and youngster Dale McKenzie pick up podium spots on their home track. Inclement weather has stalled early practices, but drivers are hoping to head out this weekend. The speedway officially opens on October 13.

World Cup beckons for young defender

Emily Jensen is hoping to create history this month. The 17 year old Waimea College starlet jetted off for a six day training camp in Switzerland last week before she ventures onto Azerbaijan for the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup. The Young Football Ferns have never made it out of the group stage at the world cup but Emily is confident that this year’s squad has the right mixture to challenge for higher honours. “Getting out of the pool stage is our team goal and then once you get out of there anything can happen,” says Emily. “All along it has been our goal, knowing how cool it would be to do it.” But the qualification process could not be any harder with the Young Football Ferns drawn alongside three heavyweights in Japan, Brazil and Mexico. “Japan go in as one of the favourites and you’d expect Brazil to be really good so Mexico are going to be our closest competition on paper. We’re not going to go out and smoke Japan but we’ll try hard for a draw or maybe a win.” Emily’s road to the world cup may be in stark contrast to her team-mates. She is the only player that is based outside of the country’s main centres and she is only able to play for her club side once a month, as it is more than 846 kilometres away from her home in Appleby. Having played in boy’s teams with Richmond Athletic growing up, Emily signed with the Auckland based Three Kings United for 2012. Ankle injuries picked up playing representative touch rugby delayed the start of her Emily Jensen is off to the FIFA Under-17 Wom- football season but she managed to feature a handful of times for Three Kings, including en’s World Cup. Photo: Phillip Rollo. an impressive display in the successful ASB Women’s Knockout Cup final last month. Because she only makes the trip north once every four weeks, Emily is reduced to oneon-one coaching sessions on the weekends in Nelson. She also has four fitness and strength sessions which she does alone. Emily admits the preparation would have been easier if she was based in Auckland on a full-time basis. Fashion Island is a destination to visit to have “It would have been better but then it’s hard a coffee, a bite to eat, take some down time in to leave everything here.

Footballers win national cup

The Waimea College first XI has claimed its best result in the pastt ten years by winning the Jim Wishart Cup for the first time. The Jim Wishart Cup is widely known as the best second tier competition for secondary school students in New Zealand, behind the Lotto Premier Boys competition which was held in Nelson. Waimea College spent the week in Ashburton, going through the entire tournament undefeated before facing off against Kings High School from Dunedin in the final. Both teams were tied 1-1 after full-time and twenty minutes of extra time still could not break the deadlock, resulting in a penalty shoot out. Waimea kept its cool under pressure to slot the first three goals while Kings High School did the opposite, missing all of its chances to put in the ball in the back of the net. The side was coached by Martin Keetley and managed by Paul Daubney. Paul says the side was confident heading into the championship after performing well against Nelson College, Nayland College and Marlborough Boys College in qualifying. “As it transpired we did do well and came home with the cup. In my ten year association with the boys team it is the first time that we have won a national tournament and to my knowledge it may be the first time ever that this has happened,” he says. “National tournaments are keenly contested and you have to be at your best over a week’s tournament play to be in the reckoning. This win somewhat erasers memories of coming close on many occasions with some very strong Waimea teams in the past.” Marty’s rotation of players throughout the tournament

The Waimea College first XI that won the 2012 Jim Wishart Cup in Ashburton is; Paul Daubney (manager), Bruno Fontana, Daniel Grimshaw, Dion Keetley, Jeremy Ditzel, Josh Kennedy, Sam Barnett, Corey Bosecke, Nathan Irvine, Hamish Worsley, Luke Henman, Danny Ross, Harry Whitehead, Josh Johnson and Martin Keetley (coach). Photo: Phillip Rollo. was crucial in getting a fit team to the final, adds Paul. “This is not to say that injuries through the week did not also occur but we had the strength in the squad to continue.”

All the players performed well in the squad, which was led on the field by the captain Sam Barnett. During the week the team won seven games, only drawing once.

Touch star off to Aussie Phillip Rollo

Ella Marwick didn’t have much time to trade the netball bib for a touch rugby singlet. The multi-talented Waimea College student has flown to Australia to link up with the New Zealand Under-17 women’s touch rugby team, just one week after starring for the Waimea College Senior A netball team at the South Island Secondary School Championship. Ella is one of three Nelson players in the New Zealand side, along with Nelson College for Girls students Nicole Drummond and Rosa Edwards. The New Zealand Under-17s will contest the Touch Football Australia X-Blades National Youth Championship in Port Macquarie, NSW. New Zealand is the only international side at the tournament, with the Australian teams being represented by each individual state.
