Grey Power NZ banishes Male Grey Power’s national federation has given the strongest possible sanction to former Nelson president Neville Male, issuing him with a legal notice to stop using its name or logo. Neville has protested the involvement of the national federation in the affairs of the local organisation but national president Terry King says the national board was asked to get involved and as the governing body it has every right to do so.

He says the management committee, led by Kevin Gardener, is the local authority and that Neville is way out of line by still claiming to be president of the group. The stance of the national body seems to give local Grey Power members some surety around which faction has control of the group, but the problems appear to be far from over. Last week two of the organisation’s computers were stolen from its Stoke

Andrew Board Editor office. Police are investigating the theft. That comes less than a week after supporters of Neville Male tried to force their way into the Grey Power office. Police were called but the office is open again under the control of the management committee.

National president Terry King spoke to Nelson Weekly and said “enough is enough”. He says the federation board “upholds the action of the Grey Power Nelson Management Committee, chaired by Mr [Kevin] Gardener”. He said the annual general meeting called by the management committee on April 1 is the place where the membership will

Spectacular crash ‘a freak accident’ As Bayden Sprozen did a somersault in his power boat at Lake Rotoiti on Saturday he had one thought: “I can save this”. He couldn’t. But it at least explains his hand stretched out and ready to meet the water in the photo of his spectacular crash with club mate Christine Hanning. Bayden was racing behind Christine at the Power Boat Champs over the weekend when her boat suddenly stopped when going around a corner. He tried to turn

left, but only managed to hit the front of her boat and was sent into an aerial somersault. “I used to ride motorbikes professionally,” says Bayden. “And one of the phases as you’re about to crash is ‘don’t worry, I can save this’. And that’s what it looks like, I put my hand out to try and flip it back over.” He says he has some sore hips and knees but the damage was minimal. “The boat is made of carbon fibre and is only 2mm thick, and all that happened was a small

crease in the carbon on one corner. We managed to keep racing in the regatta by duct taping it up after each race just to keep the water out.” Christine, who, like Bayden, races out of the Manawatu Club, was sent to hospital but only suffered muscular damage. She says the crash was a shock. “It’s a freak accident, we’ve never had an accident like that before. For more on the Power Boat Champs at Lake Rotoiti, turn to page 27.

decide who should lead the organisation in the future. Not the “special general meeting” called by Neville this Friday. “In calling another ‘Special General Meeting’ Mr Male is being very unhelpful,” says Terry. The comments follow a national board meeting last week to discuss the issues with Nelson Grey Power and Terry says it was decided to send the strongest possible message that Neville Male no longer has any association with Grey Power. A letter from solicitors Bell Gully was then sent to Neville telling him to “cease and desist from claiming any affiliation to Grey Power, using the Grey Power name or its intellectual property”.

Neville wrote to Nelson Weekly last week to say the decision from Grey Power’s national federation shouldn’t be accepted. “The involvement of the NZ

The Federation Board has instructed... Mr Male to cease and desist from claiming any affiliation to Grey Power, using the Grey Power name or its intellectual property. - Grey Power NZ federation president Terry King.

Grey Power Federation is totally without authority. The President of the Federation, Mr Terry King, advised me on 26 January, 2015, that federation policy is not to


get involved in local matters as ‘they must be handled locally’.” Terry says Neville has got the wrong end of the stick. “The board’s position in relation to any issue within the 70 Grey Power Associations around the country, is that it will not initiate a response to an issue but prefers to see local issues dealt with locally. [But] an official request for assistance was received from the Nelson committee so we got involved and quite rightly so.” Acting president of Grey Power Nelson, Kevin Gardener, didn’t want to comment to the Weekly but did say the AGM on April 1 will be the place where members can have their say and urged members to ignore any other meeting.

Cycle trail to go through Spooner’s tunnel this year Simon Bloomberg The next section of the Tasman Great Taste Trail from Wakefield through the Spooner’s Tunnel to Kohatu looks likely to be completed this financial year, with the Nelson Tasman Cycle Trails Trust expected to announce a new funding deal next week. The Tasman District Council has already included $300,000 in its 2014-2015 budget to construct the next section of the popular cycling trail, but that will only be available if matching funds are secured from either Government or a third party. Last Thursday, the prospect of completing the section from Wakefield to Kohatu improved significantly when council agreed to accept “cash and in-kind” payments from the trust as matching funds. Although trust chairwoman Gillian Wratt would not reveal details of the matching funds and in-kind payments, she did say that “we are optimistic we will secure the equivalent of $300,000 to complete the stage”. Gillian expects the funding would come through in time to complete the stage in this financial year. “We still have to finalise some details but we anticipate that, by the end of next week, we will

If Dusty catches the ball in his mouth after one bounce you’re out. “We’ve gone through 200 tennis balls and probably 40 cricket balls, but we’ve finally found a plastic cricket ball that he can’t chew and that works a treat.” John says the mere mention of cricket sends Dusty into a frenzy of excitement and he’s been in trouble in the past for jumping in on other people’s games. “He thinks that every cricket game is

there for him, but it’s never a good look when he jumps out the car at Victory Square and there’s a game on.” John, who works at Waimea College and who also coaches a cricket team, says Dusty is a regular at training sessions. “In the nets, if a ball gets hit he’ll tear off after it and bring it back. He’s a handy coaching tool.” John says Dusty has to be the world’s best fielder because he just keeps going. “He’ll go for hours and hours. He never gets sick of it.”

Rocks Rd home brings back memories JA N I N E JA N SE N HA I R DR E S SI N G


Rooftop Cafe

Stormy’S man Cave

A row of three houses to be knocked down on Rocks Rd created plenty of interest when it was reported in Nelson Weekly a fortnight ago, mainly from people interested about what was to replace them. But for Stoke man Kerry Mitchener, it brought back a flood of childhood memories. Kerry’s grandparents used to own the home on the corner of Rocks Rd and Victoria Rd. He remembers cycling around there from his parents’ home in Vanguard St when he was a boy and standing at the door of the “widow

walk” upstairs. “But I wasn’t allowed to go on it because even then it was rotting and not safe to walk on,” he says. This was about the late 40s and early 50s and Kerry says the waterfront was a different place. He remembers the now Boatshed restaurant was a shed for a boat builder and the Boat House was a scout hall and rowing club. The cycle from Vanguard St to his grandparents was often completed without encountering any motorcars. Kerry says his grandfather was a captain for passenger boats in and out of Nelson to places like Wellington and Mo-

tueka. Captain Charles Scully called his daughter – Kerry’s mum – Tui Lily Muriel, the names of the three ships he had captained out of Nelson. Kerry says he can’t remember when his grandparents left the house but it was after Captain Scully passed away. His grandmother Emma later moved in with another daughter in Stoke. The Scully house, along with two others will be bulldozed this year, with three new town houses to replace them. The owners of the houses will live in one of the new homes and sell the other two, each for around $1.5 million.

Popular children’s entertainer, Kath Bee, wowed the crowd of wee tots who giggled, wiggled and jiggled to her songs and actions.

Women's Day to be celebrated with high tea at Suburban Club When the Nelson Suburban Club was opened in 1970, women had to be accompanied by a man to enter. Forty five years later, and with its first female president, the club will play host to an International Women’s Day high tea. The high tea will feature talks from prominent Nelson women, including Tasman councillor Judene Edgar, World of Wearable Art international project manager Alison Boswijk, CEO of the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce Dot Kettle, Nelson College for Girls principal Cathy Ewing and Independent Nursing Practise director Annette Milligan. Club president, Leigh Bromell, says she is impressed with the calibre of the guest speakers. “We are so lucky in the Nelson Tasman region to have women that inspire and give back to their community, and that’s what this day and our event is all about, women celebrating and supporting one another.”

She says it's really important for the club to mark the International Day, "When the club was founded, women could not enter on their own. Thankfully, we’ve come a long way since then, and women now make up a large percentage of our membership.” The high tea will feature a charity auction and proceeds from this, and the tickets, will go towards three charities. The Nelson Regional Breast & Gynaecological Cancer Trust, The Nelson Women’s Refuge and The Nelson Women’s Centre. International Women’s Day has been around since the early 1900s, however it has gained considerable momentum since 2007 with greater media attention. The charitable high tea takes place on Saturday 7th March at The Nelson Suburban Club and is open to all women. Tickets are $5 and available from the Nelson Suburban Club or Eventbrite.

Just Metal, Tuesday, February 24: Heavy metal concert, Just Metal, was a huge success and organiser Danny Freilich says he will definitely be looking to make it a regular entertainment activity for young people. The event, held at the Theatre Royal, gave young bands the chance to gain some professional live performance experience alongside the established band, Legacy of Disorder. Danny says they sold around 200 tickets to the concert where seven young bands performed. Concert goers were also thrilled with the event. Danny has booked the theatre again for November. Natalie Davies, Tuesday, February 17: Natalie Davies’ dreams to be a professional actor have been helped along by a very successful fundraising show. There were 263 tickets bought for the show on February 22 which featured a variety of performances by her talented friends. In total, ticket sales earned her $4000, with another $1000 from donations and $150 from raffle ticket sales. The money will be going towards her $13,000 annual fees to attend a drama school in England. Fight 4 Victory, Tuesday, February 24: General admission tickets for the Fight 4 Victory are selling well, says organiser Paul Hampton. Tickets for the charity boxing event at Saxton Stadium on April 4, went on sale last Monday and already in the first week Paul says more than 200 have been sold. “It’s been a solid start. Interest is really high so we hope that it will be a sell out.” Around 1300 general admission tickets are on sale for the event, to go with the corporate tables that are almost sold out. Tickets are $35 each and can be bought at the Theatre Royal, Richmond Mall, Nelson i-Site and online at

Scooter challenge the ‘toughest yet’ The “toughest and best” Survivor Scooter yet has raised about $8000 for the Nelson Ark after covering some of the most challenging off-road terrain around the top of the South Island. Twenty-four riders started Survivor Scooter Five in Murchison on February 18 and finished four mud-covered, water-logged days later at the Kahurangi Lighthouse.

The last day was tough as well because we had to start at four in the morning to get the tides along the beach and had this muddy, boggy river crossing that slowed us down.” paint | wallpaper | curtains | blinds Exposed RRP from Jason says they had to repair quite a few of the $87.99 per roll scooters along the way to keep the riders on Last|days of | curtains track.

Trafalgar Centre: The Trafalgar Centre just sits there, when something should be happening if it is to open again in 2016. I see all the fabulous shows coming to New Zealand and Nelson City rate payers haven't got a show (literally). Surely, in three years we could have built a new entertainment centre. The land is there, if the existing building is going to cost too much why not build a new one? Last week in the Weekly, Brenda Kenny wrote "build a new one", I agree, Nelson ratepayers deserve it, we've waited long enough. Maria Clinton. Grey Power: Think I might stay once those that feel they are above both the law and the federation are all removed along with Mr Male.

Intensive Carpet Clean offers customers the best of both worlds. Being locally owned and operated, they are not a franchise, which means their customers can take advantage of better value for money, whilst receiving the highest standards of service. Owners Tom and Lorna Gower have many years’ industry experience, working for the last seven years in the UK. During their time over there they were even trusted, on three occasions, with the task of cleaning carpets in preparation for visits by Queen Elizabeth ll. They are now happy to have returned to Nelson, bringing with them a huge amount of knowledge on cleaning systems, products and techniques, ensuring their customers get the best results every time. Intensive Carpet Clean offers a range of services to suite all your carpet and upholstery cleaning needs. From stain protection, stain removal and odour control, to mattress cleaning, marine upholstery cleaning, carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning. Vacuuming can only clean so much and sometimes, the high traffic areas on your carpet can leave it looking dull and tired. The build up of dirt granules causes friction on the flooring fibres when walked on, eventually leading to visible signs of wear and tear. However, even those annoying stains that just won’t come out can vanish with a little help from Tom and Lorna. Because customer satisfaction is high on the list for Tom and Lorna, you can be sure they will endeavour to give their customers and commercial clients the best service available.

Leave it to the professionals. Tom and Lorna Gower each have 10 years experience cleaning carpets. “We are simply delighted with the condition of our carpet after your cleaning work yesterday - it looks, feels, (even smells) new again, and the previous tracking areas are no longer visible! Without doubt, this is the very best carpet cleaning outcome we have ever experienced as well as the most professional, considerate, and personable service delivery. We will certainly recommend you to all looking for such a service.” Jan and Ellis.

The young Stoke Pippins got their first experience of what it takes to be a Girl Guide when they attended a Ship Wrecked camp held in Ruby Bay last weekend. Pippins are the youngest of the Girl Guiding units and are aged between five and six years. The group helps to build friendships, while learning new skills within a fun environment. The young girls earn badges and learn to appreciate and respect the environment, and the community also. Stoke Pippin Unit Leader, Kelly Cooper, says the Pippins had been learning about camping and nature, so a real life camp was organized to put their new skills into practice. Around 14 Pippins attended Camp Ship Wreck, held at McKee Memori-

Nelsonians to gather in Gallipoli Locally Owned and Operated

Andrew Board

Three Nelson men died on April 25, 1915, the first day of the battle of Gallipoli and exactly 100 years on, around 26 Nelsonians will be standing on the same beach and cliffs where the soldiers died, and one of them is hoping they’ll be able to do it together. Cathy Knight won a double ticket to the centenary commemorations at Gallipoli, along with 13 other people from Nelson. She says she has no idea who the other people are, and would like to get together with them before the big trip and hopefully catch up over there. “I just thought it would be nice if we could meet each other first. Twenty six is such a small number, really, so it could be good to meet up over there.” Cathy is hoping to arrange a meeting in Nelson before the trip and perhaps one over there for what she describes as a “huge honour”.

“The chances of going were just so remote. I entered the ballot knowing that the chances were slim and got an email after the first ballot saying we hadn’t been successful, and I just completely forgot all about it. But I must have ticked a list saying that we’d go on a waiting list and in November I got an email out of the blue saying I’d been successful in the wait list. I had to read it several times.” Now that the feelings of shock have subsided, Cathy says the feelings of honour have replaced them. “It feels quite special just thinking about it. So the fact that we’re going to be on the spot where they landed on the beach, and we’re going to walk up the cliff where so many men died, it’s just going to be overwhelming. I expect it will be.” Around 2500 New Zealanders will be at the commemorations in Gallipoli and Cathy says any Nelsonians keen to get in touch can email her at

French language classes have new city venue French language evening classes are now available at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology, thanks to a new partnership between NMIT and Alliance Française NelsonTasman. The Alliance Française Nelson-Tasman is part of a worldwide network dedicated to encouraging interest in the French language, culture and literature. Alliance Française Nelson-Tasman president, Lisa Caron, says French language classes were previously available through Nayland College’s community education programme. However, when those classes were cut, the group was concerned that French language classes would no longer be available in the region. “We really believe in the value of community education and we thought it would be a huge loss for the community. Language learning is also a big part of what we do. We decided to step in and see if we could find a way to keep them going. We’re thrilled to say we’ve found a new venue at NMIT and we are very grateful for their support,” she said. The French language classes, taught by a native French speaker, will run on Wednesday evenings at NMIT’s S Block. For further details or to enrol, visit

This week marks the 8-year anniversary for local arboricultural business, Nelson Tree Specialists. Founded by Louise and Richard Walsh, this young and dynamic couple have worked tirelessly to grow, prune and shape Nelson Tree Specialist’s radiant reputation over the last eight years.

through esteemed arborist training provider, Arbortrim Australia, and worked in Melbourne for several years before establishing his roots with Nelson Tree Specialists. Joshua is a highly skilled arborist specialising in confined space, dead or dangerous tree removals and formative pruning. Nelson Tree Specialists offer services for all things tree-related, from tree removals, reductions, shaping, pruning and planting to tree consultancy and advice, which is perfect to mitigate any risks with trees involving other parties (such as neighbours), when building or extending, or when dealing with large heritage trees.

Their love of trees and arboriculture is palpable and it’s this intrinsic passion that has helped the business blossom since its establishment. Qualified, Experienced & Really Nice Blokes Many people know Nelson Tree Specialists for their work during the Easter 2014 Nelson Storm, and in particular the monumental Collingwood Street tree; which left a devastating impact for the home owners in its wake. There’s no job (or tree) too big (or small) for this experienced bunch. Richard has over 18-years experience in

Celebrating 8 years in business To celebrate their 8th year of business, Nelson Tree Specialists is offering free stump grinding with any tree removal during the month of March, so now is the perfect time to tend to your trees!

To talk to the team at Nelson Tree Services about all things trees, give them a call on 548 0749, or visit their website at

The Reapers Owen River Party almost became unplugged when their generator hire fell through last week. Luckily, one local business came to the party. The annual Reapers party at Owen River has taken on a true community feel this year, with fundraising going towards Child Cancer Research. So when the hire of a generator fell through, the Reapers were in need of a serious hand. Without a generator the party wouldn’t have got started. Fortunately, Brendon [Arnie] Ahnfeldt, owner of Current Generation on Pascoe St, stepped in and has generously donated one of his

industrial sized generators for the event. “It will be able to power all the concert equipment, all the sound equipment, and the PA,” he says. Brendon says the reason he is supplying the generator at no cost is due to the fact the event is raising money for Child Cancer Research. He has no affiliation with the club. Brendon usually hires the 1500 rpm diesel generators out, or sells them. The Owen River Party, held this weekend, is a family friendly camping event featuring music performed by Nelson band A Month öf Sundays. The party will also host a number of raffles, games and competitions with a biking theme.

Victim Support receives donation from Lions Victim Support Nelson was the benefactor of an $800 donation from the Nelson North Lions Club last week. The club raised the money from its annual raffle at the Tahuna Beach Holiday Park at the end of December. They decided to give the money to Victim Support after a talk from local service coordinator, Donna

Smith, to the club last year. "Donna came to speak to us and we enjoyed her talk and we could see there is a real need in the region," says club president Barbara McBride. Donna says the money is a huge help and will go towards buying resources for its clients and helping its volunteers. There are currently nine volun-

Paddleboarders join Bullerfest Sport SportS S

Simon Bloomberg

CARDS: More than 150 players contested the Steinlager Cup Euchre Pairs Tournament at Nelson Suburban Club on Sunday. The winning pair were Bill Wyllie and Shona Kidd from Oxford, with Val Mooney and Bill Thomas of Picton RSA second.

Reporter The stand-up paddleboarders provided most of the entertainment at the Bullerfest with plenty of thrills and spills as they negotiated the grade three O'Sullivan Rapids on the Buller River. It was the first time stand-up paddleboards were included in the three-day whitewater event based at Murchison and organiser Sophia Mulder says the paddlers gave the spectators plenty of laughs. Sunday's paddleboarding was followed by another fun event, the Cardboard Cup, featuring two paddlers racing in a vessel made out of duct tape and cardboard. "The paddleboarding is becoming popular at whitewater events in the US, so we decided to include it this year as a bit of a trial," Sophia says. "It gives people who aren't necessarily kayakers a chance to compete and it was pretty good fun for the spectators." However, Sophia says Bullerfest got off to a more serious start on Friday with the Boater Cross on the Matakitaki River. That was followed by the Kayak Slalom and Rafter Cross on O’Sullivan’s Rapid on Saturday.

BOWLS: The United Bowling Club Teams were again successful winners of both Division 1 and Division 2 in the Women’s Regional Interclub 7’s event, held on February 28 and March 1 at Wakefield Bowling Club and the United Bowling Club. The event is contested by the top teams from Canterbury, Marlborough, West Coast, Buller/Murchison and Nelson. Both United teams will now go to Palmerston North to play the National finals of this event, to be held on March 21 and 22. Murchison's Daan Jimmink competes in the kayak slalom at BullerFest. Photo: Barry Whitnall/Shuttersport. John Snook of Rotorua won the Boater Cross, which is described as a blend of down river racing and roller derby, with four paddlers contesting each heat. Murchison's Daan Jimmink and Phil Palzer were second and third respectively, while Murchison's Rata Lovell-Smith won the women's final - John, Daan and Phil finished in the same order in the kayak slalom. Sophia says the Rafter Cross followed

the same format as the Boater Cross, with four rafts racing head-to-head through a slalom course on O’Sullivans Rapid. "The racing was competitive, but the numbers were down a lot on last year because we had a clash with the Citroen whitewater event in Queenstown," Sophia says. "That was a bit of a communication mix-up but we've got the dates right for next year."

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club

Kids prepare for try-athlon

School kids received a special delivery with Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon race packs delivered to around 20 schools across the region last week. More than 1800 kids from Nelson took part in the event last year and it is hoped the figure will increase this year. The TRYathlon is the world’s largest triathlon series for under 16 and every child who participates receives a certificate, medal, race T-shirt and a swim cap. It will be held at the Tahunanui recreation ground this Sunday and all children swim 50 to 100 metres, bike four to eight kilometres, depending on their age, and all finish with a 1.5 kilometre run. This year participants will have the chance to

meet sporting celebrities Dillon Boucher, Aaron Gate and Sam Demster, who will be attending and handing out medals on the day. Stoke School assistant principal, Craig Logan, says the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is always supported well by children at the school, with 53 participants in this year’s event. "We have done it over the past six years and the kids do really well at it. It doesn’t matter if they are first or last, the looks on the kids' faces when finished the race is awesome,” says Craig. There are 14 events across New Zealand running from December until April, with the Nelson event race held on Sunday, March 9. Registrations for this event close on Wednesday March 4.

Hi Nelson Fishos! THAT TIME IS HERE..... TASMAN BAY SNAPPER CLASSIC.... Saturday 7th March. The biggest event on the fishing calender is this weekend. With a recipe of massive prizes, awesome venue (Speights Alehouse), great support from local sponsors and an auction to support worthy charity Big Brothers Big Sisters Nelson, this is one not to be missed. Lead by organizer Troy Dando, with the support of the Dawnbreakers Fishing Club, this competition is set to become a major event from now on. This is a four person team's one day event with all competitors having to leave from one base, Nelson ramps, and in the same set area to fish of Tasman Bay, only as high up as Greville harbour, French Pass across to Separation Point. Timing is perfect, with big schools of snapper having finished their spawning and coming back on the chew in the last few weeks. Good size snapper are getting caught on the rod and reel again,giving every-

one with a bait in the water a chance of collecting a prize. Recent reports are of snaps being caught in the shallows and deeper waters on both sides of the bay, kingfish seen everywhere and good size gurnard, john dory and blue cod also. So give the boat a check over this week, get together your team of four people and follow the easy steps online to complete your entry before this Thursday night, on www.tas So Nelson folk come along and check out the fish weigh-in and fish on display from 3-5 pm this Saturday at Speight's Ale House, which will be followed at 5.45pm by a fresh fish auction of the donated fish and lots of new sponsored items with all proceeds from both going to the local charity. A professional filleter will be available for a small donation to fully fillet out those fish that people have won the bidding on. What could be better than "fresh as" fish to take home as well as lots of new gear to bid on. See you there.

Julian is part of the Rotoiti powerboat club which currently has around 30 smaller clubman boats. He says they are a good way to get into the sport as they are easy to learn and cheap to run. “It gives kids an opportunity to get into the sport and it’s a class we really want to foster." Julian faces two more competitions before a New Zealand champion is claimed. Currently he sits only two points behind the leader. He will be competing at Lake Kaniere in Hokitika at Easter and Cromwell on ANZAC weekend.

Third generation Nelson Powerboat racer, Julian Stillwell, took out top prize at the Lake Rotoiti Powerboat Championship on the weekend, putting him in second place for the New Zealand champs. Julian’s boat is a USA-built formula one, powered by 320 horsepower mercury V6. He says a lot of the boaties invest a lot of money in the sport but the races are designed to be a fair judgement on skill. “There would be eight guys at least that have good gear to run a race but it’s not crucial. We

have a rev limit and a weight limit and a couple of other engine restrictions to keep it not so much about money." One of the difficulties of Lake Rotoiti is the altitude. Julian says this means he has to do a lot of fine tuning on the engine. “You can never make as much horsepower at altitude as you can at sea level. It’s quite difficult to get maximum power out of the engine." He says the water at Rotoiti is less buoyant than the other lakes he has competed at. “You get thrown around a lot more. It seems really hard."

• Are you considering committing to a relationship? • Do you know if you are truly compatible? How? • Do you appreciate the emotional/financial costs of getting it wrong? • Pre-relationship counselling is popular overseas because it works! • I can help you make better decisions, and relationship agreements. Separated or divorced? Still struggling? Feeling bitter? Can’t let go? Lonely? Fearful of the future? Parenting arrangements not working? Contemplating re-parenting? I can help you move on. Family Court funded counselling has gone! 5 (weekly) sessions cost the equivalent of a year’s gym membership. Set this against protracted legal costs!
