Book lovers make the most of bargains Hundreds of bookworms have been feasting in Founders for their annual book fair, with thousands of pre-loved novels, tales, stories and magazines going for cheap. The Founders Book Fair has been going for 25 years straight and is expected to bring in $100,000-plus for the development of the park. It is run by a team of keen volunteers, or “sorters” as they call themselves, having sorted through thousands of donated

“It’s birthday season for me and probably a warm lounge. We love snow and we miss it because we don’t live down south anymore.”

books since this time last year. Spokesperson Karen Clark is expecting at least 2000 people to visit Founders Park during the duration of the fair, which runs until Sunday afternoon. “They say 1000, but I’d like to hope we’d get 2000 or 3000. It looks like it’s going to be a good year again,” she says. “We’ve been putting the books into banana boxes and we probably had 200 more banana boxes full of books this year than last. There’s just thousands and thousands.” This year’s fair started with a hiss and a roar on Saturday morning, with many people queuing at the door, and car parks near the windmill entrance hard to come by. Steve Halliday of Stoke was at the fair within the first hour and says he’s been several times before. “I like to look for the old books and I’ve

bought a few in the past. I don’t go to the library anymore because I just come here and buy all my books for the year,” the Stoke man says. “Today I’ve bought the first edition of War and Peace.” Gillian Farrell of Dovedale had also been to the fair numerous times, saying she had been six years in a row. “The variety of books [brings me back every year]. You can always find something you weren’t looking for at the beginning. I tend to look for science, gardening or humour, but I just look around and pick up things I like.” Many of the other visitors have come from across New Zealand, including Jackie and Peter Smart who make the trip from Christchurch every year. They say they’ve made great friends from the book fair, who they hoped to see again, and that they stay in the region for nine days while it’s on. The Founders Book Fair is open from 10am4:30pm daily, until Sunday June 10.

The second was another house fire, this time in Sovereign St in The Wood. A mother and her teenage daughter were taken to Nelson Hospital with smoke inhalation after the daughter had flicked a cigarette butt through the window, but it blew back onto the curtain and caught fire. They had working smoke alarms and Craig says they did the right thing by closing the door and calling 111, meaning nearly 90 per cent of the house could be saved. The third fire, which occurred

just last week, started at Waterblaster Solutions in Wakatu Estate, and affected a handful of other businesses in the same premises. The cause is yet to be determined. Craig says it was a concern that two of the three fires had been started by a cigarette. “It’s always a concern to us and people need to get their house keeping in order. If they’re going to smoke, smoke outside.” Another concern was the amount of people calling the fire station to report a fire. “We’re not here all of the time so if they do see a fire they need to ring 111. That’s something people need to realise.”

It’s been a busy two weeks for the local fire service with three major fires, two of those involving cigarettes. Thankfully no one has been injured, but with winter officially underway and more people turning their heaters on and getting the fire cranking, the public need to be smart in order to prevent further emergencies. Senior station officer for Nelson, Craig Davies, says it’s been a busy time for an area that is generally “pretty fire safe”. “The level of fire safety education is pretty high in the Nelson area but we need to make sure we keep it high,” he says. “People certainly need to be pretty vigilant in winter time. Everyone is locked up inside with the fire going. We have a heater rule to make sure everything is a metre away, which is another good one to remember.” The first of the three major fires in the last two weeks occurred when a 73 year old Stoke man fell asleep with a lit cigarette in his hand. He managed to get out of the house with just

Greenie designs ‘sustainable scooter’ Nelson’s Ross Mathews is a joiner and a greenie, so it made sense that when he decided to design and build a motorised scooter it would be powered by electricity and made from wood. And now the eco-friendly design seems to be catching on with Ross receiving a lot of interest in the custom-made scooters which he has just started producing in his workshop in Nelson. Ross has only made “just over a dozen” of the Spectrum Scooters and has already sold half of those, mostly to buyers in the North Island. “I used to ride motorbikes so I’ve always been interested in that sort of thing, so I decided to design a

scooter that fitted with a sustainable theme. I make the frame out of imported plywood that comes from sustainable forests and it’s powered by a lithium ion battery which last about two hours and recharges in four.” Ross says he buys the bike parts, such as wheels and brakes from Village Cycles, as well as the electrical components but makes the rest himself. It takes around three days to produce a scooter which with the battery which is carried in a small back pack weighs 19kg.

Ross says the bikes have a top speed of just over 20 kilometres an hour and are classed as a twowheeled recreational device so can be ridden either on the footpath or road. Riders are not required to wear a helmet. “Some people think that 20 kilometres an hour isn’t very fast but it’s fast enough on a scooter. It’s ideal for commuting on the cycleways around Nelson and you can also fold it up so you can put it in the boot of your car and take it anywhere,” Ross says. Ross also makes the scooter without the electric motor that can be used as a kick bike. The electric scooter costs $1699 while the unmotorised version costs $499.

Stolen cross found at beach A memorial cross stolen on the 20th anniversary of a deadly car crash has been found at Tahuna beach. The cross belonging to the Tasker family went missing on the 20th anniversary of the crash that killed Ross Tasker. His daughter Karina Tasker was devastated at the time and appealed to the public for help to find it. Last week Nelson man Steve Williams says he was reading the article in the

“My four year old daughter found a piece of wood with the name Tasker on it. I thought it was the name if a boat.” Steve got in touch with a very happy Karina who confirmed it was a piece of the cross. Karina says she will keep the broken cross and has pushed ahead with plans to erect a steel cross where the old one once stood. “I’m so happy, it means a heck of a lot to me.”

Big turn out for chook show

Feathers, fowl and farmyard smells sum up the Nelson Poultry and Pigeon Association show at Hope hall. Club president Peter Lyall, says the purpose of the show is for people to get together and compare their breeds of poultry, and to find out if their breeds are up to New Zealand show standards. “We had a good crowd of people coming through. It’s really good to see that we’re getting a lot of support from the public and exhibitors.” Peter came out on top, with his birds winning the best fancy bantam and the best game bird, which were also the two largest sections of the day. Next weekend eight Nelson poultry breeders will be heading up to the New Zealand national show in Palmerston North with high expectations for their birds.

Musicians prepare for chamber music contest The next generation of chamber musicians will be on display this Wednesday when 13 ensembles, involving 58 students, perform in this year's Nelson-Tasman district finals of the New Zealand Community Trust Secondary Schools Chamber Music in the Baptist Centre in Nelson. Contest organiser Clare Monti says groups of three to eight musicians will be given 15 minutes to perform between one and three pieces of music. The performances will be judged by Wellington pianist Richard Mapp with groups also having a chance of qualifying for the national finals. However, Clare says the national qualifying standard is extremely high and it is a number of years since a Nelson group was selected for the finals. Clare was a member of a group that fin-

ished runner-up in the national finals in 1993. "We have some very good young musicians in Nelson but the winner of our district contest doesn't get automatic entry into the national finals. They select the top 12 groups from around the country so usually there's quite a few from Auckland - the standard is very, very high." Clare says the groups, some of which are made up of students from more than one school, have been rehearsing for weeks for the contest. The contest is presented annually by Chamber Music New Zealand and is the only nationwide chamber music competition for secondary school musicians and composers. It starts in the Baptist Centre at 193 Bridge Street at 6pm. Entry is free for students and $5 for adults.

Teacher makes gift baskets for others During the past few months some early childhood teachers around the country have received gift baskets, vouchers, magazines subscriptions and other goodies to recognize hard work – and it’s all thanks to another early childhood teacher, Rebekah Cook. Rebekah has been an early childhood teacher since 1997 and says it’s an extremely important job, but one that can be emotionally and physically demanding. She is a firm believer that a happy teacher equals a happy child. So late last year, she started an initiative called Happy ECE Teachers, which sends gifts to deserving teachers to thank them for their contribution to early childhood education in their community. Rebekah, who works at Early Learning Centre in Richmond, is the sole funder of the initiative, and nominated herself for the Pride of New Zealand Awards in a bid to raise the profile of Happy ECE Teachers, and to send more “thank yous” around the country. “Teachers can have the best resources, the best facilities, but if they’re not passionate and motivated, then the best outcome for the children is not going to be achieved,” she says. Weekly “I saw the awards in an article Nelson in the Weekly and someone told me I should enter, so I thought ‘why not?’ I didn’t really expect to hear anything so I was quite excited when I heard I was

I just want to make a difference in families’ lives.” But it was an interest in the wellbeing of teachers and its Waimea Weekly link with the well-being of children and families that started Happy ECE Teachers. “I was trying to find a tangible way I could recognise the hard work teachers do. It’s just my way

of making a difference and it’s been really well received. People have just been blown away when they find out they’ve won. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback about it.” In the long term, Rebekah hopes she can provide a variety of discounts and freebies to teachers in return for a low annual subscription. “It’d be like a club with benefits for teachers. That’s where I hope to take it.” All registered early childhood teachers can enter on the Happy ECE Teachers’ website; for their chance to win a prize.

Memorial wanted for victims of Wairau Massacre

Rotary Club of Nelson West president Dick Carter hands Coastguard president Mark Rumsey a cheque for $4500, which was raised from the recent Knapps Lawyers Boulder Bank Challenge. Mark says the support from the Rotary Club of Nelson West was massive. “They’ve been a steady supporter of us over the years and since the Boulder Bank Challenge has taken place it’s been incredible." The money is likely to go towards replacing a pontoon bag split on one of its vessels.

We ended up calling the fire department who were more than happy to help. I also have another sad story about the SPCA but won’t put it up here. Marie Harrison. People need to wake up! It frustrates me seeing the same

people trying to give away kittens on the garage sale sites on Facebook. De-sex your pets. Stop getting free kittens where you will just let them breed instead of desexing. Go to the SPCA and get one that is de-sexed, wormed and micro-chipped. No wonder we have a crazy man in Parliament saying we need to register cats or start killing strays that wander into our yard. And instead of giving up your pet when you move, find a house that will allow you to have a pet. Pets are meant to be part of the family. Pets are meant to be for life! You don’t give them up just because your living situation changes. Julia Lines. They should all be fixed after one litter. Brenda Kenny.

It is not actually the SPCA’s job to take in your animal that you decide you don’t want anymore, they’re there to prevent and protect animals from cruelty. Some SPCAs around the country don’t take in any animals from owners at all, they only take strays. If your situation changes it’s your responsibility to re home your animal the SPCA is an absolute last resort. People act like it’s the SPCA’s responsibility to take their animal. It’s not. If they agree to take your pet they’re doing you a favour, one they have no obligation to do. It’s not hard to do the right thing and advertise your animal on Trade Me or elsewhere and find it a good home. Jazmin Torrance. I have four cats, all strays/wild or abandoned (they are all neutered and fixed at my expense), they don’t ask

4 Ernest Place, Brightwater

Rowan Dron is delighted to be your local SmartVent System installer and believes this is the best home ventilation system around. If you asked an expert electrician, rather than the next door-to-door salesperson who comes knocking - or a fast talking telemarketer - chances are that they’d recommend SmartVent, too. Recent independent research revealed that 8 out of 10 electricians recommend SmartVent as the home ventilation solution to choose A home ventilation system from SmartVent quietly ventilates your home with fresher, drier air; removing condensation and moisture and creating a healthier, more comfortable, living environment. SmartVent rids your home of condensation. Crying windows, wet sills, damp walls! These are all signs of too much moisture in the home. Damp conditions lead to mould and mildew. They damage your paint and wallpaper, rots your walls and furniture, harms your curtains, furnishings and clothes. Mould and mildew lead to air-borne allergens and aggravate respiratory illnesses like asthma. So don’t put up with crying windows and damp walls – it’s costing you money, takes time to clean up and could be dramatically affecting your family’s health. Breathe fresh clean air by reducing air-borne toxins from tobacco smoke, household clean-

ers, and formaldehyde from furniture, carpet and building materials. SmartVent also reduces pollutants such as dust and dust mites, pet dander and pollen, all of which can trigger asthma, allergies and other respiratory condition. SmartVent Synergy is a True Heat Recovery system capable of extracting stale, moistureladen air from inside your home and bring in fresher, drier air simultaneously. Synergy is a completely balanced system, that recovers and re- uses up to 90% of the heat from the warm air extracted from within your home. An extremely energy efficient way to re-use heat you have already generated and paid for from your heat pump, log fire or other heat source. SmartVent is less expensive than other ventilation systems, is of higher quality, and they are a local NZ company that uses NZ-made gear. It’s future proofed so you can upgrade at any time, it’s easy to operate and has whisper quiet running, as well as a five year guarantee. To discover exactly how SmartVent can keep your home warmer, drier and healthier, check out their website or arrange for Rowan to call and provide a free home assessment. Don’t forget, we can service your heatpumps too.

The organiser of a youth skateboard art competition hopes it will attract new, young artists to participate. “It’s a fun thing to do. Rather than giving someone a canvas, we’re giving them a skateboard deck that they can do absolutely anything with,” says local painter and mother Donna Allfrey. “They don’t have to be a skater or an artist. I just want them to use their imagination.” With the support of Creative New Zealand, Donna

has been given 90 skateboard decks. Participants will first put their design on an entry form, with selected entries from Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough then given a skateboard deck to put their artwork on. “We’ve got the Refinery Artspace outer gallery to put their work on display in September.” To enter, visit Board Art 2014 on Facebook, or pick up an entry form from the Refinery Artspace, or the Richmond Mall information desk.

School choir rocks 'da Richmond Mall' Cutting through the hustle and bustle of evening shoppers last Thursday were the voices of the Nayland Primary School choir. This year’s Richmond Mall Rock da House has now seen six schools perform their own mini concerts, every two to three weeks in the Richmond Mall food court. This is in the lead up to the final three performances that are to be hosted by Motueka on August 18, 19 and 20. Richmond Mall Manager Belinds de Cler-

cq says although she was unable to watch the Nayland performance she has heard great feedback from customers as well as retailers. The next Rock da House mini concert will be held on June 5 at 6:30pm in the Richmond Mall when Garin College and St Paul’s choir will delight the public with their voices once again. These mini concerts will continue for the rest of June, every Thursday evening so drop in on your way home to hear some of the community’s talented youth.

Police report with Area Commander

Steve Greally

Police regularly receive reports from people in rural areas who have been targeted by thieves stealing stock from paddocks. Mostly the animals will be shot on site and then the best bits of the carcase taken and the rest left to rot in the paddock. This is a really hard crime to police because the thieves are operating in a vast rural environment and Police Officers simply can't be everywhere all of the time so the chances of being caught in the act can slim. We regularly have to rely on rural networks keeping an eye on activities in the valleys and back roads of our area. Up until recently the penalty for someone caught poaching was a maximum $500 fine. The value of the meat or animals being taken could easily be twice or three times that cost. The good news for farmers - and the warning for poachers - is that the penalties under the Wild Animal Control Act have been reviewed and made significantly harsher. The maximum penalty is now $100,000 or two years in prison. I sincerely hope that sends a clear message to poachers that their actions could have very severe consequences and I can assure them that Police will actively pursue any information in regard to alleged poaching. For all our rural readers, remember, if you see a person or vehicle in your area that doesn't seem right, get the registration details and give us a call.

Despite a constantly shifting market, they remain a dominant force within the motor vehicle industry and are planning on maintaining this position with innovative thinking and a proactive attitude towards business decisions. In the last 12 months The Car Company has seen several changes, including the relocation of their head office from Vanguard St to their Rutherford St property. Rutherford Street now incorporates three premises, the commercial and recreational centre, their head office and the car dealership. Managing Director Shane Drummond took the opportunity to purchase the Rutherford St property, which has not

only expanded the company to two dealerships but gives him the chance to run the business from companyowned land. While Vanguard St is no longer head of operations, its new title as The Car Company Clearance Centre gives people a more cost-effective option when buying a car. Specialising in trade-in vehicles and a range of cheaper vehicles, they now stock around 35 cars that are on display and readily-available for viewing. The Car Company has also developed and invested in expanding their Tahunanui dealership. New offices have been erected along with the addition of a new garage and a larger area for stock.

COMPANY The Bigger, Stronger and Better in 2014 Last month Shane Drummond, accompanied by Richmond manager Ben Brownie, returned from a buying trip in Japan. The trip not only gave Ben experience in buying stock but provided The Car Company with an additional 95 cars in preparation for their birthday sale, which began on Friday. Every car in every dealership will be on sale, which is “pretty powerful” says Shane, considering the size of their stock goes well over 400 vehicles. Shane himself is in constant contact with a huge network of suppliers locally, nationally and internationally, and because of this they have the means to stock so many cars, buy a lot more and, because of their range, they sell more. This makes them a stronger and more effective car dealer than many other outlets. The breadth of their contacts, and the fact they are continually buying cars around the country, means they can always locate a specific vehicle for their clients. The Car Company celebrated more success when they were named SsangYong’s dealership of the year for 2013. “That’s pretty exciting for us,” says Shane. “For a little dealership in Nelson to be at the premium of a distributor.” The Car Company are proud to be the sole distributor for the top of the South Island for the Korean manufacturer SsangYong, and stock a comprehensive range of new and used vehicles. SsangYong has also taken on the LDV van distributorship, making

The Car Company an LDV franchisee, which continues to be a successful line of vehicles. Community support has always been a vital part of The Car Company and this year a charity drive in association with More FM will gift a generous 10,000 dollars to a worthy community cause. “We are obviously a massively community-orientated company and we like to keep the support that we do local,” says Shane. “We support lots of community things like basketball, cricket, rugby, women’s refuge and the list goes on. I’m one strong believer that you earn your money locally and spend your money locally.” The Car Company is itself strongly supported by a loyal staff: several of the 22 staff having been with Shane for well over 10 years. “That’s very rare in the car business, for people in such volumes to be staying with one company. They’ve realised we look after our staff and we’ve got an extremely great bunch of staff.” They are a great asset to the company because service is paramount and The Car Company pride itself on employing knowledgeable, customer-focused and dedicated people, who strive to maintain the best standard and reputation for the company. The Car Company also offers their clients extra options with their own finance and insurance company, so you don’t have to go anywhere else to complete your car buying process.

The team at the Money Company offer a unique scenario, with competitive rates and comprehensive solutions to suit customers’ individual needs. “We don’t take investments and put people’s money at risk, all we do is loan it out and it’s local and extremely competitive, just the same way that we sell cars.” The future of The Car Company will be shaped by their commitment to “keep on keeping on”. “My huge philosophies are that we back ourselves, that we don’t except failure and we take risks,” says Shane. “We’re proactive and extremely innovative. We don’t just look locally at what we’re doing. By going to Japan we are updating the market and researching what’s happening because the car market is continually changing with government regulations and rules. We have to react to those.” The Car Company’s expansion is aided by other elements including their website, TradeMe and other forms of social media. By moving with the times and maintaining a proactive approach to their business, The Car Company aims to provide clients with the best service and deals available in the industry.

I am not a great fan of a garden that is completely native, but this week I visited just such a garden and I haven’t stopped thinking about it. I have always been of the opinion that natives and ornamentals made good bed fellows. Each having their own characteristics of form and foliage. Ornamentals offer a diverse variety of floral shape and colour. And this can continue throughout all the seasons, depending on what you choose to grow. So there you are, enjoying foliage colour which can change as the season progresses, lovely floral displays which can turn into attractive berries, and so on. In the native department there is again foliage colour that will change, there are also berries that follow flowers, and seed heads on some of the grasses can be quite magnificent. So when I visited this garden my eyes were opened startlingly wide. The garden started off as being totally flat, with a stream running through it, as straight as a die. Bruce, who created this garden wanted to make contours and even small hillocks. So, at some considerable expense, soil was brought in by many a truck load, and gently sloping wide pathways were created. The width being determined by enough space for two people to walk comfortably side-by-side. This enables pleasant and easy conversation, without the stop-start manoeuvring involved with a narrow pathway. After the rolling contours were developed, he set to and sought advice regarding what native plants would suit his site and conditions. The area is subject to surprisingly strong wind draughts and this had to be taken into consideration with the selection of suitable plants. As it

GOLD! Arthur Wakefield had purchased part of the Aorere Valley with an eye to farming, but two early settlers, Ned James and John Ellis, reported traces of gold there in October 1856. By November, this was con-

firmed by experienced goldminer George Lightband. His successful prospect, at what became known as Lightband’s Gully, triggered New Zealand’s first major goldrush in 1857. Within four months one thousand men had arrived.

turned out a wide selection of natives were suitable for this garden, as they are quite adaptable to adverse conditions. Bruce loves ferns, but he had to be dissuaded from using these as the conditions were not suitable. But a wonderful collection of natives were gathered together. These included various Sophora varieties [he is keen to attract native birds to the garden.] To please his wife, who wanted some pretty flowers, Hebes and Leptospermums were included. Then for foliage colour, a selection of Coprosmas was added along with some Pittosporums. For foliage interest, a collection of Corokias with divaricating and sometimes thought of as tangled growth and Pseudopanax which has to be seen to be believed, such is the diverse array of foliage. Some grasses were also included, such as Anemanthele lessoniana, and Chionochloa flavicans, which should not be confused with Chionochloa flavescens. Once again the result of obtaining advice before planting. If you are in doubt about what and where to plant, do seek advice. It will save you heaps in time, trouble, and dollars. Bruce did, and he has been rewarded with a garden that has all the atmosphere that one could wish for.

Nelson set the pace The Nelson College first XV rugby team look on track for a home semi-final – which might seem crazy, with nine rounds still to play. It’s pretty perfect reading for the new-look side, with five wins from five games, including two key away victories against heavyweights St Bede’s College and Marlborough Boys College. There’s just one other undefeated team left in the competition, Christchurch Boys High school, and Nelson will host them in two weeks time. First they have Lincoln High School at home this Saturday. Team manager Peter Grigg says the Christchurch Boys High School match will be vital, as the front runners start to eye a home semi-final. “It’s always nice to take the travel factor out of it and play in your home turf.” He wasn’t surprised by how well the young team was doing this year, and says it’s a Nelson College centre Tima Faingaanuku makes testament to the hard work that has been put a break during Thursday’s match.

IN BRIEF fooTbAll: AMI Nelson Suburbs have done the near impossible, beating Cashmere Technical 1-0 in Christchurch. It is the first time since June last year that Cashmere has lost a match, and was the first time in 12 Mainland Premier League games that the defending champions haven’t collected maximum points. Suburbs’ next match is against secondplace Western at Saxton Field on Sunday. rUgbY: Stoke will be holding their club day at Greenmeadows this Saturday, with all of their teams playing at home. The day will be headlined by the Car Company division one match between Stoke and Waimea Old Boys, which kicks off at 3pm. The division two team will also be taking on Waimea Old Boys, and the women’s team will also be at home.

Footballer thriving in US college system Phillip Rollo Reporter It’d be hard to convince Erik Panzer that anywhere other than the United States is the perfect pathway for a top athlete and someone wanting a top education. When it comes to increasing his football skills on the pitch, and expanding his knowledge off it, Erik believes it’s USA all the way. The 20 year-old is back in Nelson for a month after completing his second year at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, where he studies psychology and plays centreback for their soccer team, the Bobcats. He will be one of three guest speakers at Sport Tasman’s US College Sports Scholarship Information Evening this Friday, where students, parents and coaches can learn more about life as an athlete in the American college system. Erik, who will be joined by middle distance runners Craig Lautenslager and Josie Wilcox on Friday, had achieved nearly everything he could as a teenager in New Zealand football. He was a regular for Nelson Suburbs in the Mainland Premier League, led Canterbury United to the ASB Youth League title, and made his ASB Premiership debut for Canterbury United.

Footballer Erik Panzer will be speaking at Sport Tasman's US College Sports Scholarship Information Evening on Friday. Photo: Phillip Rollo. But the US had always appealed to him as a place where he could extend his football career and get an education at the same time. “My parents had always stressed that education was important and I always understood why. Injuries happen and even if you go pro at the age of 18 you can always get cut. So it was a very appealing option, the fact I had a US passport helped too,” the former Garin College student says. After moving conferences, Quinnipiac had

their best season ever in 2013/14, reaching the first round of the NCAA Championship. Erik was gifted an NCAA ring to remember the team’s efforts, but despite losing to tenth-ranked University of Connecticut, it was a moment he’s unlikely to forget. “It was a place no one in the school had ever gone; no one in the programme had ever gone. They sent up five busloads of supporters from school, we had a good 500 fans and there were 3500 people in the crowd,” he says, describing the biggest

football game of his young career. Erik says his Bobcats team played to their game plan perfectly but still couldn’t overturn their much-fancied opponents, losing 2-1. “We kept on fighting but we just couldn’t break it. That’s where the journey ended but it was our first time ever going into the national championship draw. For the school it was huge. It was a moment that all students live for.” Erik says the entire season last year was a highlight for him, and he thrived in a back four that had some of the best defensive stats in the country. "We were number seven in the country for clean sheets and number 13 in the country for goals against, and those are things we can hang on to." Now back in Nelson for a few more weeks, where he is playing for Nelson Suburbs, Erik put his hand up to help speak with young Nelson athletes about his US scholarship and how they can follow a similar path. "People need help sometimes, they don't know the process. I just felt there was an opportunity to inform others that have the potential and there are so many opportunities out there. We're just giving an insight into the younger generation to hopefully help them on their way." Erik says each athlete has a different story, living in different cities, playing different sports, and gaining their scholarship through various ways. "It's just something they can hear and want to pursue."

Nelson's title hopes slip

Saturday's loss to Waitohi means that Galbraith Nelson appear unlikely to retain the Bayleys Tasman Trophy. However, co-coach Kade Heke believes they can still take out the Car Company division one competition, as they close in on a semi-final spot. "I think on our day we can beat any team, we've got the backs and the forwards to do it," he says. Kade says Saturday's 33-15 loss was a classic "game of two halves", with Nelson unable to contain the dominant Waitohi forwards in the first 40 minutes. "We played a lot better in the second half. They just dominated us in the first half with their roll-

ing maul from the lineout. We struggled to combat it really," he says. "Their forwards are definitely their strength and they play well as a unit." Waitohi remain the only unbeaten team left in the Tasman Trophy, and with Wanderers and Marist drawing 13-13 at Trafalgar Park, they already have one hand on the trophy. Having won the Tasman Trophy twice in the past two years, Kade says the team was disappointed to miss out this year. "Definitely gutted. We gave it everything though." Nelson will host Marist on Saturday, with the match likely to be at Trafalgar Park, kicking off at 3pm.

Home course golfers dominate tournament

It was three Greenacres golfers who dominated the Taylor Timbers Waimea Golf Championship on their own course, with Tom Dasler, Henry Ludbrook and Natalee Read the big winners over the weekend. Natalee, representing Greenacres, was named ladies champion, winning by four shots to card a two-round 164. She was also the overall net winner, her handicap bringing her score down to 142 over the 36-hole event. In the men’s section, Tom, also of Greenacres, won the championship with a score of 145 over two rounds.

Phillip Rollo Reporter He won in a three-hole-playoff with Queenstown’s Dong Young Kim. Henry tallied 150 over two rounds, but his -10 handicap brought his score down to 140, giving him the overall net title. While the championship titles were the most prestigious, there were bigger prizes for the net winners, enabling competitors of all skill levels to be in with a chance. The tournament was robbed of some the

However, tournament director Sue Taylor says it was another splendid weekend for the tournament, which has been running annually since the 1940s. “It was a fantastic weekend. We had 90 entries, with most of those coming from all around the Nelson and Tasman region,” she says. “We were so lucky with beautiful weather and the course was amazing. It was a very successful tournament and everyone really enjoyed it.”

Schools march towards nationals

The road to nationals is proving a lot tougher for the Nayland College first XI, despite beating Waimea College on Thursday. Nayland, Nelson, Waimea and Marlborough Boys College are chasing just two spots for the New Zealand Secondary School Football Championship, and the four schools will spend the next few weeks competing against each other to find out who the two qualifiers will be. Nayland, at their weakest in the last decade, managed to win the game after they put one goal past Waimea shortly after their goalkeeper was shown a red card, even though Waimea dominated most facets of the game. In the round’s other match, Nelson beat Marlborough 2-1 during their annual exchange, held in Blenheim on Thursday.
