Big events ‘might’ get priority Any event that requires space for spectators “might take priority” over the participation users of Saxton Stadium, according to Nelson City Council, who are currently trying to juggle a 50 page list of bookings. With the future of the closed Trafalgar Centre still up in the air, many event organisers have scrambled to find a suitable alternate venue – a lot of those hoping to get into Saxton Stadium which is the region’s premier participation sports venue. But it’s beginning to have an effect on the current users of the venue, who remain in the dark about how much court space they will be allowed in a busier than usual year. “I was involved in the stadium from well before it even got its piles in the ground. I’m a very committed grassroots/ participation person and at the moment it’s now become an events centre,” says Nelson

Bays Volleyball’s operations manager Pamela Brodie. The most high profile bookings at Saxton Stadium, which would have been at the Trafalgar Centre, include nine Nelson Giants’ home games between April 4 and June 27, an ANZ Championship netball match on May 11, the national cat show on June 29 and the South Island 4 and Rotary Car Show on November 7-9. The sports events, in particular, need temporary seating to accommodate the 2200 people expected to attend them, and that will result in less court space for everyone else – a year after Saxton Stadium closed due to flood repairs. Nelson City Council confirmed that just four of the five basketball courts would

It seems an ironic way of reducing litter, but Tahunanui School plans to remove all of their rubbish bins in the coming weeks – a move it hopes will not only clean up the school, but encourage parents to think twice about what they put in their child’s lunchboxes. Tahunanui School isn’t the first

to try this method – Waimea Intermediate School has already been doing it for about four years – but its Enviro Schools leader, Heidi Newland, says the amount of uneaten school lunches that have been thrown out is a “concern”, and they hope this idea will help prevent that. “It’s like sandwiches

and what’s not.” Tahunanui’s Enviro Schools – which is a group of Year 5 and 6 students – came up with the idea and the school will officially put it into practice from March 17. “This is what the kids were mainly worried about. There is just so much waste and so much packaging.” Students will now be able to put their fruit and vegetable leftovers in a food scraps bin while paper and plastic is recycled. Everything else will be taken home. “The school already does quite a bit of recycling. We’ve already got a compost bin and a food scraps bin.” When asked how a parent might react when their child brings home a messy yoghurt container, Heidi says “maybe they won’t give their kid yoghurt and maybe they will keep it for pudding”. She says there had been zero feedback from

parents, but there hadn’t actually been a forum which enabled them to do so. That was likely to be held next term. What Tahunanui School hoped to achieve from this was “zero waste” and Heidi believed it would enable students to think more about what is in their lunch box too, as she knew of one child that turned up to school with just a large packet of potato chips. Waimea Intermediate School teacher Todd Mcauley praised Tahunanui School for their decision. “I think it’s great that Tahuna are doing that. They hopefully will have a lot of success, because they’ll have their kids from five years old right through. We have to establish that every year because we always have new Year 7s coming through,” he says. Tahunanui is also looking for donations of ice cream containers, hummus containers, or “anything children could use as an alternative” to store their lunches in.

Big events ‘might’ get priority FROM PAGE 1 be available to use throughout the winter sports season, but says it hadn’t given priority to the Nelson Giants in particular. However, it “might” give priority to any event that requires space for spectators, over the participation sports that “could easily relocate to other courts”, says communications manager Angela Ricker. “All the codes have been accommodated as much as possible. While we’ve been unable to completely meet every group’s requirements, for the most part the codes have been willing to work with us and be flexible.” Pamela says the stadium was there to build participation programmes, something she described as “being put on hold now”. “Because of all these extra events and

activities happening, it’s very difficult to advertise or increase participation when we have an unknown capacity of use.” She also says it was more expensive to use other facilities. Netball Nelson’s manager Chelsea Routhan, says it has been a “struggle”, but they were working closely with the other codes, Sport Tasman and Nelson City Council so everyone can benefit as much as possible. “It’s definitely been difficult and Saxton Stadium is a participation venue, so we’re trying to get as much utilisation as we can,” she says. According to council, no event had missed out when changing their booking from the Trafalgar Centre to Saxton Stadium, only ones that had opted for other venues that better suited their needs.

Residents refuse to leave camp ground Residents of the Brook Valley Holiday Park are vowing to fight a council decision to close the camping ground, with some saying they will refuse to leave. On Thursday, Nelson City councillors agreed to a proposal to close the park, and the news was hand-delivered to semi-permanent residents over the weekend. The camping ground loses around $175,000 a year and the council says that is too much of a burden on ratepayers. They say residents can move to the council’s other camping grounds at Tahunanui Beach and in the Maitai Valley. “While the future of the park is being looked at, we won’t be taking any more casual camping bookings,” says community services chair, Pete Rainey. “For those who continue to live there, all services and facilities will be maintained until there’s a final decision. If the time comes that we do decide to close the park, every semipermanent resident will be offered an alternative site at the council’s Maitai Camp.” But residents are less than impressed. Susan MacKinnon believes the council has been planning to shut down the camp for some time, and she

The Maitai has got really inferior facilities compared to here. I don’t think it could take an influx of people, especially in the ablution blocks, I don’t think they would handle it. You’d be looking at health problems then.” Dave Heap says he will refuse to leave the camp if it’s closed. “If the proposal goes ahead I’m gonna stay right here. I’ve only just decided on that. There’s a lot here that can’t leave. Some of the caravans have permanent annexes that are bolted on the side. If they go to the Maitai they’re not allowed those at all. Some caravans can’t be moved because they’ve

been built on to.” They say the lack of a bus service to the Maitai camp is also a concern, and the lack of sun at the Maitai camp. But Pete says the final decision hasn’t been made just yet and residents will have the chance to have their say. “No one is being asked to move out of the park now. I want to stress that the council is only considering the option. There is plenty of time for semi-permanent residents, and indeed all residents of Nelson, to share their views with the council – and we’re keen to hear what people think about the idea.” Public consultation will open on 28 March and run through to 28 April. The council will decide on the future of the park in June.

Relay for Life an emotional night “Surreal” is a word Jeni Chambers uses to describe two moments in her life – the day she diagnosed with breast cancer and the day she survived it. The Tahunanui woman was just one of thousands of people who walked or ran laps around Saxton Field throughout Saturday evening and the early hours of Sunday morning, for the 2014 Relay for Life. Jeni works at Pomeroy’s Coffee Factory in Wakatu Estate, and walked alongside her staff mates at the Relay for Life. As well as her own fight, Jeni said as she walked the laps she would think about her sister, who died three years ago from cancer. “I’m thinking of her a lot. I’m thinking of the pink medicine. I’m thinking of the people who helped me a lot. Everything is positive though, you can’t have a negative thought,” she says. “This is an awesome event and it’s great to see so many young people out there supporting the cause.” Jeni’s surgery was December 20, 2006 – a date she will never forget. “It’s just so surreal because you don’t think it’s happening to you.” Doctors never spoke about the possibility of death – it was all about survival – and just last

No AMAlgAMATioN: Another amalgamation bid for Nelson City and Tasman District councils has been rejected by the Local Government Commission. The commission released its decision last week on the reorganisation application made in November 2013 by Rick Farr of Nelson. The decision means that the application does not proceed to the first stage of the reorganisation process. MAN STAbbED: A 53 year old man is recovering after he was stabbed around 10 times in the back, arms and legs while in his bed on Friday night. Peter Dyer was able to escape the attack at around 10pm and ran to a neighbour’s house for help. Police then found the alleged attacker, a 41 year old man, still in the Tahunanui house where he was arrested after a “struggle”. He appeared in Nelson District Court yesterday. STolEN bikES: A Nelson couple are urging the public to keep an eye out for a silver Avanti touring bike, after it was taken while they were shopping for organic groceries in The Wood. Rebbecca Paton and her husband Adam Gilbert, had ridden into town for their weekly shopping at the Organic Green Grocer on the corner of Grove and Tasman St when it went missing.

Nearly everyone at the Relay for Life had been affected by cancer in some form – it had either taken their loved ones or their friends and family had survived it. Others there are still fighting the disease. Tears rolled down Edna Brownlee’s cheeks when she explained that her father died seven months ago from cancer. She was at the Relay for Life with a group of ten from the Tasman District Council, and says the support from her team was “awesome”.

year Jeni was told she was all clear. “That was surreal too.” Jeni says the support from friends and family was “amazing”. “You have to get your own head around it first then you slowly tell people but once I told them they were really good. [What got me through it] was my children telling me that they want me to live for them. I always said I’d die for my kids and I would, but my daughter said she wanted me to live for her and that was the turning point.”

Sara Davidson has had both friends and family who have passed away from cancer, and she says the reasons for participating in the event were very personal. “It’s to celebrate, remember and fight back,” she says. “In the past year I’ve lost two friends to cancer. It’s scary how it happens to somehow you know when you just don’t think it will. As I walk I’m just remembering them.” More than $200,000 was raised from the event with 105 teams taking part.

Fire destroys Stoke home Your Community Newspaper

A two storey Stoke home was gutted, after a fire ripped through it last night. The home, on Leicester St, was engulfed in flames when fire engines from Stoke, Richmond and Nelson arrived at around 5pm. Emergency services were unavailable for comment at the time Nelson Weekly went to print last night but those at the scene say it went up quickly. “There was lots of smoke and it looked like the garage down stairs had been gutted,” said Weekly reporter Phillip Rollo. “Because of the high winds police asked people to stay well clear and others were running from both end of Leicester St, concerned that the wind could have spread it to neighbouring properties.”

Tea by the Sea is the school’s annual fundraiser and is on this Friday, March 7, from 5 to 7pm. This year, members of local group Samba de Sol have been working with children at the school, to put together a unique performance of song, music and dance, as the finale of the event. As well as a wide selection of quality food, there’ll be great

activities lined up for kids big and small, including horizontal bungy, a giant waterslide, inflatable obstacle course, face painting and raffles with a wide range of great prizes. The money raised this year will, among other things, help fund school-wide environmental projects, new computer equipment, upcoming school camps and new junior playground equipment. Those attending are urged to please bring along a plate, cutlery and a cup (no glass).

The Nelson Mail’s circulation has taken another whopping drop, according to figures released from ABC Circulation. The Mail has lost almost eight per cent of its circulation on the same time last year, losing more than 2000 subscribers in the past two years. While fewer people are buying their paper, its editor last week trumpeted its online readership stats. But online readership figures provide little comfort for advertisers, as their adverts don’t appear online, meaning the new statistics show fewer people will see an advert placed in the Nelson Mail now than ever before. The drop in circulation is a continuing trend for the Mail, which often appears at the top of circulation drops in the South Island. The latest results show that fewer than 13,000 now pay for the Nelson Mail, the worst figures in decades. Nelson Weekly publisher Steve Page, says the figures are part of an ongoing trend, and one of the reasons why advertisers are no longer looking at daily newspapers. “We’ve seen huge growth in our locally owned community newspapers and the main reason is the response our advertisers get,” he says. “That’s because our circulation can’t be beaten. We go to every home and we make sure our paper has the best stories and photographs in it. No other community newspaper in Nelson can say that.” Nelson Weekly is delivered free to more than 20,000 homes and businesses every Tuesday, and its sister paper, Waimea Weekly, is delivered free to more than 10,000 homes and businesses every Wednesday.

It has a new name and a renewed focus but the Sprig and Fern Summer Harvest Fare is promising to be just as popular as the formerly named Last of the Summer Fare. The free event has grown in popularity over the years and is Richmond’s biggest street party with food, wine and beer stalls surrounding a laid back family atmosphere at Sundial Square. This year’s celebration of the end of summer will take place on March 21 and organisers say the emphasis will be on providing great food and music ensuring the atmosphere at this year’s Summer Harvest Fare will be memorable. With entertainment from the Nelson Jazz Club there will be a variety of music to get you up and dancing as the region celebrates the success of the regions fantastic harvest. Although there will be a security presence, the fair is a laid back affair and is a great opportunity to get together with friends and family after work to enjoy a Sprig & Fern beer, a range of wines and ciders or to sample some good local gourmet food. With about 40 stallholders showcasing a huge variety of food and drink there should be no end of flavors and smells to tickle your taste buds.

Musican gets big break


Phillip Rollo



Interior Plastering Jordan Luck was bowing down to Alex Hargreaves on stage, screaming into the microphone “we are not worthy”, as she shredded on the guitar and sang along with their hit single “Who Loves Who The Most”. The former Nayland College student had the “unreal” experience of performing with The Exponents in front of a sold-out crowd of 2000 people at the Classic Hits Winery Tour on Friday night. Alex, 18, won a competition through Classic Hits to perform at the second Neudorf Vineyards show – an experience she will remember for the rest of her life. “Oh man, it was just so unreal. I can’t even believe that just happened,” she says. “I found out a few weeks ago, but I had just assumed I hadn’t got it because it was so long after I entered.” Alex, who is the lead singer of last year’s Smokefreerockquest regional runnersup Paper City, was supposed to just play the one song – which changed to “Who Loves Alex The Most” – but was later called back on stage to perform again. “At the end they dragged me on to play another song, but I didn’t even know that one. They sort of put the guitar on me, and the bass player was yelling chords at me, which was cool.” The Exponents have been around the

I never knew I would actually just play with them. It was just incredible. All of the band were just supportive guys and really cool. It was just awesome.” Alex left Nayland College last year and is now studying film in Auckland. She was flown back to Nelson with the support of Jens Hansen Jewellers. Her band,

Seaweek is back, plenty planned

COUCH STORIES: Jo Ann Firestone and Ro Cambridge will be taking their popular radio show off air and onto the stage. The pair have convinced ten politicans, including several Labour MPs, to take part in their "couch stories" interview show. There is only one catch, they're not allowed to talk about politics. The storytellers include Damien O'Connor, Maryan Street, Jacinda Ardern, Marian Hobbs, Ali Boswijk and Gail Collingwood. The show is from 7pm, this Friday night at the Old St John's. Tickets are $15 at Everyman Records or at the door. Photo: Andrew Board.

Hub cap guitars a hit with music fans A Nelson man has found the coolest way to make “the world’s coolest music” come to life – through old hub caps and cigar boxes. John Dixon has always loved listening to blues music, and about 20 years ago he learnt how to play the slide guitar, central to many of the blues’ best songs. Six months ago he took passion to the next level when he started making his own slide guitars out of hub caps and cigar boxes, and their unique look and sound has captured audiences around the world. John says his new hobby started when he was at a friend’s house and they were looking at someone playing a hub cap slide guitar on You Tube. His friend said “we could do that”, and challenged John to give it a go. “The rest is history really. I started to get all sorts of different hub caps and you can tune them up the same but they all sound a little different.” John makes his slide guitars out of old hub caps, cigar boxes and even old ceiling fans, most of which are either given to John from mates or he sources from the recycle centre. He adds wood for the neck and adds bits of “bling” from old food processors, cutlery, hinges and keys, before adding the strings and tuning them up.

“I can get a piece of old wood, cut it out and sand it down and put it together, chuck some strings on it, twang it up and have a play. People say ‘I’ve never seen anything like it’ and they get pretty excited about it,” he says. John has made around 30 of the guitars and given most away, but has recently started selling them at markets and Begg’s Musicworks. He says he’d love to make a “wee business” out of it for himself but is content to make them for pleasure at the moment. He says the slide guitar has a deep history in blues music and that the cigar box guitars were made around the 1920s by those who couldn’t afford a real guitar. “I love slide guitars, it’s a passion of mine. I’ve seen a lot of the blues players. I lived in Australia for 12 years and I’d go and see a lot of them. And seeing these guys started the passion in me. I always loved my music, and about 20 years I decided ‘bugger it, I’m going to buy a guitar’.” John’s guitars have sold around Nelson, but also overseas from people visiting here and sending videos of John playing back to friends and family. He’s also been invited by the band Boulder Bank to join them on stage every Friday night at the Honest Lawyer to play his guitars. “I really enjoy it and I’ve had lots of comments.”

Dan's inspirational story goes global When Stoke's Dan Younghusband was born the doctors didn't expect him live more than 24 hours. Dan weighed just 1.3 kilograms and had a rare type of dwarfism called Seckel's Syndrome that resulted in him suffering from microcephaly, skeletal malformation and visual impairment. But Dan defied the odds and survived, and now, almost 30 years later, he is preparing to tell his story to an international conference aimed at inspiring people to overcome their disabilities. Dan has been invited to speak at the Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity in Hawaii on May 19, when he will talk about his paua jewellery Dan Younghusband and Jada Polglase with some of the paua jewellery that Dan has made for his micro-business, Paua By Dan.

father Dave gave him some paua shell after a fishing trip to Kaikoura. Dan was so intrigued by the colourful shell he decided to use it to make jewellery, later forming his business, Paua By Dan, with help from Tony Mclean of the national disability service ImagineBetter and Parent2Parent. “When I first started making it, I was giving it away, but then people said I should sell it, so Tony suggested I set up a micro-business. We are making steady progress and I've been really enjoying the whole process of setting-up and running a business and working with my hands.” Dan says he is fortunate to have such a good team supporting his business, including Tony who will travel to Hawaii with Dan to help him present his seminar. Dan's support worker Jada Polglase and mother, Caro, “do the detailed work I can't do because of my eyesight”, and he gets discounted chains and beads from Bead Gallery in Nelson. The next challenge Dan faces is raising funds for travel to Hawaii, conference registration fees and accommodation costs. Caro has no doubt he'll reach his target. “Dan is the most determined person I know and we are very proud of him,” she says. Anyone interested in helping Dan can contact him at or phone Caro 027 465 0106.

Police Volunteers needed for war effort report

with Area Commander

Steve Greally

At the time of writing this we have a large search and rescue operation under way in Nelson Lakes National Park where a 19 year old from Germany is missing. This situation brings up two points I’d like to talk about. Firstly, while this young man was well prepared with food and good equipment, he did not leave clear information about what he was doing and where he was going, and unfortunately he has become separated from his food and equipment. All tramping huts have log books, and the information people put in them makes a huge difference when it comes to finding people or getting help quickly when people get into difficulty. I would urge anyone heading out, even for a day walk, to make sure they tell someone where they are going and when they expect to get back. Likewise, if you’re out tramping, put some really detailed information in the hut logs. Secondly, I’d like to acknowledge the work that LandSAR volunteers do to assist Police with these searches. These people give up their own time to go in search of other people. In this case they have been tramping in snow and freezing alpine conditions. It’s not just time they give but the effort and commitment and without them search and rescue would be even more difficult. These people are fit, skilled and very knowledgeable about the outdoors, and we are extremely lucky to have such a dedicated bunch ready, willing and able to assist with the many searches we undertake each year in the Nelson Bays Area. I take my hat off to all the search and rescue volunteers and urge everyone out there not to take safety in the outdoors lightly.

Volunteers are being called for Nelson’s coolest war effort. Nelson is joining the rest of New Zealand in a host of World War 1 commemorative events to acknowledge the 100 year anniversary of ‘the Great War’. One award winning event in particular has been bringing our local war time history to life – Lest We Forget, now known as ‘The Anzac Experience’ is on again on April 25, 26 and 27 – and Nelsonians of all ages are invited to join up and help make it happen. Volunteers are needed for a variety of active duties, from manning the

Information Post or doing border patrol, to running missions, and providing key supply chain or logistics support. ‘The Anzac Experience’ and its associated School Education Programme is now in its seventh year. This could not happen without the willing, cheerful recruits keen to participate in creating a time warp for the event visitors. TJ Ramsay, from The Dramatix Theatre Development Trust and event creator, says every year they get the most extraordinary range of people of all ages and walks of life who make this event possible. “It’s a truly unique community

event, something we can all be proud of.” Many volunteers return each year, like Jan Hands, who with her husband Ian, volunteered yearly before ill health made it impossible. “It is the most amazing thing to be part of, like nothing we’d ever done before. You feel proud to part of such a quality event – I’d encourage everyone to volunteer – you can’t be too old, just willing to give it a go.” If you’re interested in joining up – from doing a shift on one day to helping for the entire weekend please contact or by calling TJ on 027 545 8102.

the negativity which has held Nelson in it's grip for many years. A Parking building is needed whether you like the idea or not. It is not about money or breaking even, it is about filling a need, providing a service to the community, and making better use of the available land. The amount of flat land devoted to parking in this city is nothing less than criminal waste. I regret that the Car park building no go: only person who seems to be in tune with Errol Miller's comment on the car Nelson is Lewis Stanton with his horse and parking building idea is typical of cart. That is what is holding Nelson back the horse and cart mentality. Change of subject: "Where's our most wonderful Woman". Easy, you will find her at the hospital and wearing a nurses uniform.

A world class education is closer than you think


Poor supervision can have serious consequences in any workplace, and many supervisors in are given little or no professional supervision training before taking up their roles. In March 2014, NMIT will launch the Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Supervision The certificate, developed by Wintec, will run part-time over one year. It’s split into two parts and each part involves three two-day workshops as well as follow up activities – so it can easily be fitted around work. It’s the first time the qualification has been offered in Nelson and it’s targeted mainly at professionals already working with people or looking to move into a supervisory role. NMIT Social Sciences Counselling Coordinating Tutor, Raewyn Laurenson says supervision skills are greatly under-valued in most workplaces and supervisors are often selected based on the length of their experience rather than their qualifications and training. We do have some excellent, professionally trained supervisors in our community, but demand for effective supervision is increasing.” Raewyn says.

Common mistakes that supervisors can make include collusion and a reluctance to take responsibility, or being too directive. “Some of the key skills that a supervisor needs are the ability to listen without judgement, summarise what’s been said and help people think through their practice and come up with their own solutions,” she says. Raewyn Laurenson says good supervision can prevent disasters and harm from happening and will make a workplace feel safer, happier and less stressful for employees - leading to reduced staff turnover and greater profitability. “It’s time that supervision skills were valued more highly by employers, as they are already in many of the caring professions like counselling and social work.” she says.

ORIGINS OF NELSON ANNIVERSARY DAY The “Fifeshire” arrived on 1 February 1842, and a year later the first anniversary was celebrated. A wet, windy day began with rowing and sailing races, and a band playing

in the rain on Captain England’s jetty. The second day began with a Maori canoe race, Nelson’s first horse race, a shooting competition, sack races and catching a pig with a soaped tail. Everyone enjoyed dancing and a free tea.

Nelson boy wins canoe slalom Most of the 250 plus competitors at the weekend’s Buller Festival were from out of town, but Nelson boy Tommy McDowell made sure he was up there with the best – taking out the C1 open men’s slalom. The Buller Festival is New Zealand’s premier white water event, and attracted a large crowd of out-of-town competitors – including a former Olympian from the UK. The festival started off with the popular boater cross, an event which sees

kayakers race together down the river. Over the course of the weekend there was also kayak and canoe slalom, rafter cross, SUP race and the classic cardboard cup, which involves making a vessel out of cardboard and tape and taking it down the river. The event is held every year and showcases exactly why Murchison is known as the “four river plains”, with its top spots being used by hundreds of competitors. Event spokesperson Sophia Mulder

says this was no doubt the biggest weekend on the Murchison calendar, with plenty of money spent in the town. “I think this year we had a lot of people coming from further. We had a lot of international competitors, and not just professional athletes but some just here for a good social time,” she says. “There was a good long queue everywhere, the Four Square was flat out, the petrol station was flat out. I don’t think they’ve ever sold as much bread, meat and beer as they did this weekend.”

Monty visits Victory boxers

Got sports news?

Andrew Board

Boxing royalty dropped in on the Victory Boxing Club last week as former boxer and Warriors rugby league captain, Monty Betham, passed on some of his knowledge to local boxers and administrators. Monty was brought to Nelson by Scott Gibbons, who was successfully trained by the former boxer for last year’s Fight 4 Victory event. He spent the day working with young boxers, members of the Richmond Rabbits rugby league team and staff of Gibbons Construction. Monty says it was great to see the gym, that was developed as a result of the Fight 4 Victory. “I’m very proud of what the guys are doing. Paul Hampden and Barry Galbraith and this organisation, they’re doing it for the love of it and for the love of the community. That’s something I do back home so I understand how hard it is for these guys, so I was keen to lend my support.” He says the impact of a communityminded boxing gym is enormous, and he’s seen huge results in his gym in Auckland. “Sometimes in team sports you can fly by without going through the hardships yourself, and the good thing about boxing is that you can’t wing it. So what they’re doing here is perfect, it’s the kind of love that the kids need and they will pass that love on and feel better about themselves.”

Eagles beaten in inter-city final Some fine pitching from Kurt Schollum has seen the Saints Rams of Blenheim take the inter-city softball title in dominant fashion. The Rams, who finished third place in the round robin stage, were too good for the Waimea Eagles in Saturday’s final, winning 7-0 at Saxton Ball Park. The inter-city competition pits four of Nelson’s senior clubs against three of Blenheim’s, in a two round league before a play off involving four teams. Kurt and his brother Ryan, also a member of the Black Sox training squad, proved their class in the victory. Nelson Softball CEO Derryn French says The Saints Rams have been pretty convincing all year, only being beaten when Kurt hadn’t taken the mound. “They’re just too good at the moment for the rest of us,” he says. “It just shows the difference in having quality pitching, and they’re a good hitting side too, they have to hit the runs.” Nelson clubs will now turn their focus to the business end of the local competition. The Waimea Eagles and Stoke Eagles are currently top of the table with just three weeks to go.

Big win for young golfer Now that he knows what winning feels like, Ryan Chisnall is aiming for more success on the golf green in 2014. The 19 year old, who plays out of Greenacres Golf Club, took out the South Island Championship in Dunedin last week -- the most significant win of his young career. Having been part of the New Zealand development squad for a number of years prior, and finishing second at the New Zealand Amateur Golf Championships last year, Ryan has always shown great potential. But he finally delivered on that at the St Clair course beating Canterbury number one Jordan Bakermans by one hole, to finish with an eightunder par 276 total and claim the title. “I had finished second place eight times or something stupid [at national events] so to actually win something felt pretty good,” he says. “To win one of the top tournaments in New Zealand meant even more.” Ryan is now hoping to crack the

top six ranked amateurs in New Zealand. “I’m ranked eighth in New Zealand but the top six, based on the world rankings, get invited to the Asian amateur, so I’ve got plenty of time to catch up and make some ground.” Ryan, who works part-time as a greenkeeper at Greenacres Golf Club, led from start to finish at the South Island Championship and he admits there was plenty of pressure to hold on and get his first big win. He shot 65, 68, 70 and then a round of 73 on the par 71 layout, and admits nerves certainly played their part in what he described as a “poor” finish. “The last day was pretty hard and I knew if I shot par then I’d be unlucky not to win, so for the last round I just wanted to stay around that par mark. But I finished poorly and finished two over, but I got there in the end.” Nelson’s Blair Riordan shot the only sub-70 score in the final round, with 69 to take fourth place.
