New race proves to be a hit

Hundreds of people ran, jumped, slid and swam around a muddy Wairua Warrior obstacle course on Saturday, giving the fledging event a great start. The race was held at Happy Valley Adventures in Cable Bay where entrants could compete in either a six kilometre obstacle course or a double lap at 12km.

Event organiser Greg Witika says he is pleased with how the event took shape. “The day has been fantastic. We had a really good contingent of people coming through for our first event.” He says he is already thinking ahead to next year’s course and making it an annual event. A video of the day is online at

House fires ‘a concern’ A third house fire in as many weeks has the fire service sounding more warnings as they prepare for their busiest time of year. The start of winter is a traditionally busy time for house fires and Nelson station officer Darren Shackleton says people need to take precautions. The warning comes after fire destroyed an-

other home, this time in central Nelson. The fire started at around 3am on Monday and quickly spread through Kelly Huang and La Per’s St Lawrence St home. The pair, who only bought the home a month ago, escaped with Per’s mother, Ma Li, who also lives in the home. All three were checked by St John at the scene with

Andrew Board Editor Ma Li sent to hospital for further checks. Darren has attended all three fires and says the first two were started by battery

chargers, while the cause of yesterday’s fire hasn’t been determined yet. He says the number of fires is a concern and people need to check their electric blankets, clean out their chimney flue and dust off heaters before they’re used.

The size of this year’s vintage may be well down but winemakers around the Nelson region are hoping it will be high on quality after they completed harvesting this week. A cold December and dry summer has resulted in poor flowering and low yields throughout the region with most growers reporting decreases of 30 to 50 per cent on last year. However, the low yields could well result in excellent wines with Waimea Estates general manager Ben Bolitho saying the vintage “is small but it is great”. “The weather for the whole of spring was not optimal for wind pollinated fruit,” Ben says. “It was cold, especially during early December when the vines were flowering so this year we harvested just under 1350 tonnes compared with 2437 tonnes last year.

John Harrey inspects some cabernet franc grapes at Te Mania’s vineyard on McShane’s Rd last week. “But the thing about a smaller yield is that the quality is really good with a high fruit concentration. On the back of a gold medal winning sauvignon blanc of 2014, we’re really looking forward to what this vintage will bring us.” Neudorf ’s viticulturalist Richard Flatman says their sauvignon blanc yields were down on average with pinot noir and chardonnay also “down a bit”.

“We only had 45 per cent of our average rainfall from July to December and it was cold and windy so the yields are down. But at this stage the fruit is looking really good - it has good depth of flavour.” Richard says it was also a season of firsts at Neudorf with the vineyard having its “first frost in 38 years” and the earliest start and finish to harvesting. Te Mania’s John Harrey says they planned to finish harvesting the last two or three varieties on their vineyards at the weekend and although yields were down “about 30 per cent on last year”, the quality was good. “A lot of the fruit has been very good quality but we would have liked a little more. The fruit ripened very quickly too so we were putting in some long days to get it all harvested.”

Crash prompts calls for lower speed limit

A group of Lower Queen St residents want the 50kmh speed limit extended to McShane Rd to make their street safer, after another accident at the Richmond black spot last week. Two people suffered minor to moderate injuries after their vehicles collided on Lower Queen St last Wednesday. It is the latest in a long list of accidents that includes two fatal crashes on the busy stretch of road, and the residents say the best way to make it safer is to reduce the speed limit from 70kmh to 50kmh. “There are so many cars and trucks on this road and they are going too fast, especially with all the pedestrians,” Rebecca Gibbs says. “It’s pretty much a residential area and they are still allowed to drive at 70kmh - it’s a little scary.” Rebecca says that Lower Queen St also has a school and church within the 70kmh zone. A turn off into the Lower Queen St Health Centre can also cause traffic to back-up and create problems, she says. Another resident, Peter Field, who has lived on Lower Queen St for 19 years, says he can recall at least six serious accidents near his house. He says it has always been a dangerous

Maxwell Clark and Shona McBride have lived on Lower Queen St for “just over 20 years” and say they have also made submissions to council to lower the speed limit, from 70kmh to 50kmh from the A &

P Showgrounds to Nelson Pine Industries. “The traffic volume has increased immensely on this section of road in recent years,” Maxwell says. “Now residents find it unsafe entering or exiting their properties in this area and school children are taking their lives in their hands when they walk or cycle to school.” However, the council’s transportation manager Gary Clark says they are unlikely to change the speed limit in the near future because the 70kmh section of road is situated in a “semi-rural area”. He says there is no “distinct change” in the road or the level of development in that section of the 70kmh zone that justifies lowering the speed limit to 50kmh.

Chris, who is a competitive weightlifter, says Waimea Village is so secluded and secure that the thieves took a big risk entering the property. “It surprised me, the risk of anything like this happening

is so remote out here. But I’ve started putting a lock on my bike and put my spare key inside,” Chris says. Chris, who uses the bike as transport to his job and parent’s house in Teapot Valley, says the theft has made him think about taking further security precautions. “I might start keeping something inside for protection. I don’t want to

hurt anyone but if someone broke in I’d protect myself.” Chris says he was “blown away and absolutely gobsmacked” to get his bike back and wants to say thanks the person who found it and reported it to police. Kevin says they both contacted police after the thefts but no one reported hearing or seeing anything suspicious.

Refund for some Air NZ passengers, others denied Some passengers on the cancelled Air New Zealand flight from Auckland to Nelson last month are threatening to go to television show Fair Go after they were denied compensation for accommodation costs – while others were refunded. Eddie Bradford, of Richmond, was on the flight and says he does not accept Air New Zealand’s reasons for the cancellation and he has written to them seeking a suitable response. “When you book a flight it is just like a contract, we honoured our side by paying $1100 up front but they didn’t honour their side of the agreement,” says Eddie. His frustration is further exasperated after hearing that another couple on the flight were refunded their accommodation costs and credited airpoints for the cancellation. Craig Davies wrote an email complaining about the cancelled flight and the lack of service from Air New Zealand staff. He was refunded for his accommodation costs and credited with airpoints.

Andrew Board Editor

But Eddie says he had no such luck. “We sent an email to Air New Zealand complaining about the lack of service and asked them why they had cancelled our flights from Auckland to Nelson. They sent back what seemed like an automated response, saying passenger safety is paramount and that is why the flight was cancelled. “Because they have got the monopoly, they think they can just walk over everyone,” says Eddie. The Sunday afternoon flight was cancelled last month after it was delayed several times. Air New Zealand admitted that the reason the flight was cancelled was because they wanted the plane back in Auckland for the busy Monday morning flights, and poor weather meant they could have flown to Nelson but not back to Auckland that night. Air New Zealand did not respond in time for our print deadline.

Flying night missions over Germany in World War 2 was about as dangerous an occupation as you could hope to have, and for John Beeching flying back to base in England without some of his mates became a way of life. “You didn’t think much about it. They’d come in and take all his possessions and leave and that was it. Another mate gone.” The loss of mates was the obvious low-light of the war for John, the new patron of the Nelson RSA and dedicated Poppy Day volunteer. “Other than that it was the time of my life. It was just a big adventure to me. We were all young and getting to fly these great machines. It was exciting.” John, 91, was a pilot with the Royal Air Force and flew in support of bomber aeroplanes over Germany. After the war he moved to Canada and then New Zealand. He has lived in Nelson for 54 years and been a member of the Nelson RSA for 35 years. For most of that time John has been volunteering his time to sell poppies on the corner of Trafalgar and Hardy Sts.

The Wood's John Beeching, 91, with a couple of poppies he'll be selling on Poppy Day this Friday. On the wall behind John is a picture of the Mosquito aeroplane, similar to those he flew in World War 2. Photo: Andrew Board. He says Poppy Day is an important day on his calendar and he enjoys raising the money that goes towards health costs for veterans living in Nelson. “Sometimes people will talk to you, but most of the time it’s just a quick stop to buy the poppy and then on their way. It’s great to see the support though, on Poppy Day and at the Anzac Day services. Last year we had more than 1000 people there.” John still works part time at

the Cawthron Institute and his wife Wendy also keeps busy, delivering the Nelson Weekly among other things. John says he’s had a great life but he often things about his mates who weren’t so lucky. “I think about them all the time, and on Anzac Day and Armistice Day it’s a big thing to reminisce.” Nelson RSA president Barry Pont says each year Poppy Day raises about $20,000. The money goes to the welfare costs of ex-service people in need.

Nelson cyclists urged to ‘be bright’ this winter With daylight saving over, cyclists are being urged to make themselves as bright as possible. Bike Wise, NZ Police, and Nelson City Council are promoting the “Be Bright” campaign which aims to reduce cycling accidents and increasing awareness of cyclist safety. Cyclists are being reminded to light up their bikes and wear high-visibility clothing to help keep them safe on the road. Keen cyclist and Nelson City councillor Matt Lawrey encourages everyone to think about the safety of the cyclists in their lives, especially in winter.

“The better lit up cyclists are, the better for everyone. I’ve got three lights on the front of my bike, two on the back and three reflectors, and even then I sometimes think I could do with some more.” Also a part of the campaign are checkpoints at key locations where police will assess reflective gear and lights, and roving cycle ambassadors who will stop cyclists without lights and offer to fit a light on the bikes at no cost. Cyclists are also being reminded to use their bell to alert walkers Sergeant Stu Wright and councillor Matt Lawrey out early on the busy to avoid frightening them when passing. commuter routes for the Bright Bike campaign.

CAR CRASH: A dog that ran out onto the road while being walked along Lower Queen St appears to have been a factor in a two-vehicle collision that happened just before 4pm on April 8. “A woman was walking her dog on leash and it went onto the road, and one of the cars swerved to miss it and hit the other one,” said a witness. CAR PARK RESERVED WITH ROAD CONE: For over a year a Stoke resident has been reserving her own park on Lichfield St, but Nelson City Council says she has no right to. A neighbour of the cheeky driver, who did not wish to be named, posted a photo on Facebook of the car park after the woman had left. “She keeps these cones in her car and when she drives off she places the cone,” said the neighbour.

Crowds stream into apple fair

A large crowd celebrated this year’s apple harvest at the annual Wakefield Apple Fair, held last Sunday. Organisers of the event say they were thrilled to see a steady stream of people through the gates and estimate attendance had quadrupled in size compared with last year. People were encouraged to bring along their own apples and join in the process of making juice using vintage machinery. There was a variety of apple-themed activities throughout the day including apple bobbing, apple tasting and food stalls selling toffee apples, apple pie and apple jelly. “The day has been fantastic, there are tonnes

Super Gran, Tuesday, April 7: After their article in the Nelson Weekly, the Super Gran programme, run by the Te Korowai Trust, has already gained the interest of two more potential Super Grans. Co-ordinator Betty Soane says she will be meeting with the two ladies in the coming week to discuss how they can assist the programme. She also says the article has made her a recognisable face around town, with people commenting on the great job those running the programme are doing. Mini Speed Record, Tuesday, April 7: At last count, the group of Nelson men aiming to set a new speed record in Bonneville have $401 raised through their Give-a-little page. The group currently hold the land speed record of 235 km/h for their class of Mini Cooper S, gained in 2012, but after partnering with Mini New Zealand, Maersk Line, Total Lubricants and the World of Wearable Art and Collectable Car Museum, they still require more sponsorship. With a goal of $105,000, you can help support their journey by visiting ‘project64’ at

more people here compared with last year, we are just blown away by the community support,” says organiser Amy Bucknall. The fair was held at Willow Bank Heritage Village, a private property owned by Christine Grieder and Kim John Kerslake. The property is host to 15 relocated and restored buildings, which encompass a variety of items from antique toys and china to haberdashery. The crowd was entertained with live music by The Plinkers and performances by the Morris Dancers. A highlight of the day was a re-enactment of the ringing of the old Wai-iti school bells, inside a relocated Collingwood St church which was built in the 1880s.

Boxing 'a joke': The picture of the lady boxers sharing a laugh after the "fight of the night" says it all. What a huge joke! To celebrate Easter Eve with a night of violence is a shameful thing, and what an example to the young boys who are supposed to be the beneficiaries. Disgusting! Ren Kempthorne.

Surely, being nailed to a cross is more violent than a charity boxing event. Editor.

They were awarded both junior and middle division champions at the finals held in Auckland, which qualified them for the international competition. The students departed the national competition before the award ceremony was held, in order to catch a flight and found out on the bus to the airport they had won. “It was fantastic, something we had wanted to achieve, we had competed the year before and hadn’t quite made it, so we really wanted to do it this time,” says student Logan Smith.

Hospital chaplain helps to heal the spirit Andrew Board

For two years Yvonne McLean has been the chaplain at Nelson Hospital and in that time she’s spoken with thousands of people dealing with heartbreak, joy or stress. But she says no matter the situation she and her volunteers offer something often missing from a hospital – peace. The Nelson Chaplaincy Service is a nondenominational organisation, there to offer a friendly ear to hospital patients, staff and visitors. Yvonne and her team of 18 volunteers visit people in wards and also run the hospital chapel, which is right beside the café. She says some people want to talk, some don’t, while others are just happy to sit in silence while their hand is held. “We try to gauge what they’d like from us and some people don’t want to see us, but they’re always polite about it. Others want to get something off their chest and we’re there for that too.” Yvonne was a minister at Nelson Cathedral before she took up the job at the hospital. She says it was “God’s decision” and she has thoroughly enjoyed it. “He made it very clear that he wanted me here and it’s been very rewarding, very fulfilling. It has its tough times, but it’s a privilege to be with people during tough times and happy times too.” She says coming from the Anglican cathedral to the multi-faith Chaplain did take some adjustment, but the main reason for

Photo: Andrew Board. the job isn’t about faith, it’s about people. “I really care about people, regardless. I have up-skilled in other faiths but mainly it’s about people and listening to people, and being there for people no matter what their faith is.” Last year, Yvonne and her team made 6952 “meaningful” visits to patients and assisted 1019 family members. She says there is plenty of joy in her job with new parents and grandparents com-

ing to the Chaplain to give thanks and those who may have had surgery and are feeling much better. But there is heartache as well. “Sometimes it’s tough. Certainly there are times where I have to come back and collect myself, and there are times that I’ve spent time in the chapel just having a few moments of quiet, that’s where I recharge again. “All our volunteers have to report back to

me at the end of their ward rounds and that’s where they can off-load anything. So I’m here to listen to the volunteers as much as the patients and visitors.” Due to confidentially rules, Nelson Weekly couldn’t speak with any of the patients that the Chaplaincy has helped, but it did receive an anonymous comment from a patient through the chaplaincy. It read: “Thank you once again for all your support and the support of your team. I would not have been able to get through this admission if it wasn’t for you and your team. I really praise God for all of you. Thanks again, God bless you all.” Yvonne says looking after the spirit is just as important as the physical body and she feels the biggest thing they do is bring peace to a situation. “I feel we carry Christ, we may not speak his name, we may not talk about him, but we carry peace into a situation. We may not talk about faith at all, but to bring peace to someone is our main help.” The chaplaincy service is 50 per cent funded by the government, the rest is made up from donations. Yvonne says they get great support from the hospital itself and local churches, but they’re hoping to raise some more money from the community to cover a shortfall this year. Anyone who would like to contribute can contact the service’s fundraising coordinator, Annie Brown, on 546 1818 or email her on For more information on the service, visit www.ichc.

It’s not just a huge range of equipment you will find at Richmond Hire; their service is second to none. They will help you choose the right gear, instruct you on how best to use it, make sure you have the right safety equipment, and that support continues right through to the end of your project so if anything untoward happens, they will be there right away to sort it out. The tools stocked by Richmond Hire are suitable for a wide range of work, from the smaller hand-held machines used by those into their DIY and contractors, to big equipment used for one off-jobs and specialised tasks by industry and government workers. Safety is a high priority for Richmond Hire, so not only is their equipment regularly checked for faults, they can also train you to use the machinery before you take it away. That could mean a demonstration on site when they deliver your hire equipment, or a quick rundown of the basics in store. Wayne says he is also looking at installing a television in the near future so that

customers who wish to learn about the machines they will be using can spend 10 minutes watching a video tutorial. They also have safety covered with the regular replacement of their hire equipment. Richmond Hire has the skills to repair tools in their workshop, but they do not have a full time mechanic as their turnover of tools means they are always functioning at their best. The team also makes sure they stock reliable and reputable brands that will stand up to heavy duty work, especially in the commercial construction environment. Richmond Hire specialise in equipment up to two tons, including diggers, kanga and tractor hire at an hourly rate.

Richmond Hire is also flexible on the period of time you can hire their

machinery, whether it’s a weekend job to shred some garden waste or a four month long project. If you’re a new tradesman to the area and know you’ll need to get your hands on some equipment temporarily, Wayne encourages you to email your trading name and address through to him at and they will get an account set up with a 10 per cent discount. Richmond Hire is also happy to offer a convenient pick-up or delivery service, especially when it comes to transporting larger equipment such as diggers that require a two and a half ton towing capacity. Richmond Hire doesn’t just cater to Richmond, their hire services are the perfect solution for any contractor or handyman who wants to work with the best tools in the trade. Their convenient Beach Rd location means they’re right at the end of the motorway plus, being a locallyowned and operated business, they’re committed to providing you with quality over profit.

Plan to drive in the middle of the day or in daylight hours, when visibility is better and ice and snow are less likely to be on the road. Avoid driving at night when hazards rapidly multiply.

For road travellers, winter (usually between June and August) can be the most dangerous time of year. Motor vehicle accidents involving wet weather, fog, ice and snow can have serious consequences, and these conditions can hit anywhere at any time during winter. Snow can be unpredictable, occurring suddenly in areas like the central North Island and alpine passes in the South Island. It only takes a little bit of snow in mild climates to make roads treacherous. The following winter driving tips will help you stay safe on the road.

With Nelson Weekly editor Andrew 'Bad News' Board Laying on a wooden trolley in a dark corner of Saxton Stadium with my hat over my face, headphones over my ears and breath running in my nose and out my mouth, I did all I could to calm my nerves. It was around 7pm last Saturday night. I was dressed in a blue singlet and long blue shorts with black boxing boots and in about an hour and a half I was due to climb into a boxing ring and fight another man in the Fight 4 Victory. But I was trying to forget all that. I was trying to not let the nerves and adrenaline consume me. As I lay there with loud music pumping into my ears I couldn’t hear anything else, but I could feel the vibrations from the crowd. I could feel the tension and I could only guess as to what was happening in the ring. After three songs I got up and headed for the dressing room. My strategy of trying to hide and forget about my fight was not working. By the time I got to the dressing room, Nelson City councillor Tim Skinner was sitting down with his towel-covered head bowed. He’d lost the first fight of the night and he was disappointed. His eyes winced as he replayed the result in his head. Standing around him were his wife and his two boys. Despite their dad’s obvious disappointment, his boys had smiles on their faces. They thought he did great and they were right. Tim fought a hell of a fight against Richard Malcolm and lost on split decision, one of seven that would be decided that way over the course of the night. For the next half an hour I sat in my seat, listened to music, sipped from my water bottle and watched as fellow members of the blue corner left and returned. Crown prosecutor Emma Riddell returned with a black eye but also with her unmistakable smile, “I loved it,” she beamed. Unassuming chef Kevin Hopgood returned with the blue corner’s first belt of the night, but also with a bloody nose and wry smile as he accepted the congratulations from the rest of us. Engineer Karl Griffin returned with a medic after he took a

I paced the room trying to think about what I should be doing and smashed hand pads held up by our trainer, Deon Charles. As I walked to the edge of the grandstand I could hear Murray Leaning and Mike King fire up the crowd, I could hear the cheers. When my opponent Hayden Thompson walked to the ring my nerves doubled as I saw the lights spin and the music pump. Then the attention turned to me. My name roared from the speakers as I walked through the crowd. I could hear people yelling my name but I didn’t dare look. I tried to focus on looking straight ahead and making it to the ring. When I got there I hopped through the ropes, bounced about and tried to look tough (although I’m certain it didn’t work). The fight was a blur. I remember standing there as the referee gave us his final instructions. Hayden and I were staring at each other and then it was on. I remember throwing a jab and missing and the rest is snapshots. I remember him hitting my ribs, I remember him coming at me and I remember having him on the ropes at one stage. The whole fight seemed to last a few moments and I can’t tell you want happened in each round, this wasn’t because of a head knock, just adrenaline. During the fight I could only hear my trainer Barry Galbraith, nothing else until the final 30 seconds, then I heard the roar from the crowd and it was incredible.

Standing in the ring and waiting for the judges decision I wasn't sure whether I was going to win or not but I knew I had given it all I could. Hayden was awarded the fight on a split decision and I quickly found myself back in the dressing room and surprisingly emotional. I didn’t cry or anything, but I felt waves of pride and disappointment. I felt I let myself down by losing, but felt proud that I’d stepped so far out of my comfort zone and had put up a good fight. My teammates were kind in their praise and after a few moments to collect myself, I headed out to the corporate tables where I had family and friends. They were all fantastic. I watched the rest of the fights from the tables and caught up with Hayden in the stands. I congratulated him and we both talked about how we would carry on sparring and training. It’s something that gets in your bones, I think. Back in the changing room after the last fight, the girls were doing their makeup and the last fighters were having a shower. I saw a young boxer who regularly attends the Victory Boxing gym and I asked him what he thought. “Yeah, real good. You were all real good,” he said. More than a week on, the whole thing still seems a bit surreal, but it would rank as one of the most incredible experiences of my life. To hear the event raised around $80,000 for the Victory Boxing Charitable Trust is quite amazing. It was a once in a lifetime experience and I have no regrets at all. I’m glad I did, even if my rib is still a bit sore.

Winless Nelson line up unbeaten Waimea Old Boys It doesn't get any easier for Galbraith Group Nelson. After suffering a close 14-6 loss to bitter rivals Wakatu Hotel Marist on Saturday, they now have to pick themselves up and prepare for the two-time defending champions who are also unbeaten this season. Waimea Old Boys swept past Freeman Roofing Stoke 35-13 at Greenmeadows on Saturday to extend their perfect start to the season. But for Nelson there would be no better week to break their losing streak. "They [Waimea] are the bench mark so it will be a good yardstick for us," says Nelson coach Kade Heke. "We're looking forward to testing ourselves against them." Nelson have welcomed back star back Robbie Malneek and Kade says they're expecting the arrival of a Fijian number 8 within the next few weeks. Kade says the key for his side is for his young players to gel as quickly as possible. "We're such a young side it's just

The boys are willing, each week we're progressing, but there's still a lot we need to work on." The match will kick off at Jubilee Park at 3pm. In the other games, Taylor's Contracting Wanderers will play Marist this weekend, after a big 33-0 win over Kahurangi on Saturday. Which leaves Stoke to travel to Kahurangi.

After-school sports have been a part of every kiwi kid’s childhood for many years. Thanks to Hockey Nelson, Nelson has its own fantastic junior hockey programme to get kids out and enjoying being active. The programme starts with Kindie Sticks, for chil-

dren aged three to five and focuses on fun, fundamental skill games. It then moves through several levels including Fun Sticks for years one and two, Mini Sticks for years three and four, Kiwi Sticks for years five and six, and Kwick Sticks for intermediate ages. As children go through the levels of the junior hockey programme they move from fun skill games to more competition-based hockey, played between fellow teams. Leading up to the junior programme, Hockey Nelson co-ordinators visit schools throughout the region, sharing with children three or four lessons, showing them the basics of Hockey and fun games.

The introduction to the sport has proven extremely popular and, at the end of the visits, the schools are invited to take part in a ‘Festival of Hockey’ competition to put their newly learnt skills to the test. This includes schools as far afield as Golden Bay and results in around 800 children gathering at the Saxton hockey turf to play the sport over two days. The school programme runs from February until the end of May and, along the way, those who wish to continue to play the sport can register to take part in the after-school junior hockey programme. Regional development manager for hockey, Craig Brett says that the numbers taking part in their afterschool programme have seriously increased; around nine years ago they were operating it with around 40 kids, now numbers have jumped to around 600. The after-school programme runs for 10 weeks, this year beginning on April 30. Because they are still running their school visits when the junior programme starts, registration into the programme has no cut-off date and, thanks to generous sponsorship from Heartland Bank, fees are extremely low. What makes the junior hockey programme even better for parents is that it is all run on a Thursday evening with no extra trainings to worry

about. The youngest level, Kindie Sticks, begins at 4:30pm and everything is wrapped up by 6:30pm. Children participating are mainly grouped according to schools and are placed under the guidance of Nelson hockey clubs who are responsible for uniforms and sourcing coaches, of whom 60 are involved with the upcoming junior programme. Unlike other sports, hockey is played year round thanks to artificial turf. Once the 10 week summer programme finishes, there is a short break before the winter season starts and, following that, children from the ages of eight and up are invited to take part in an extension programme which works on developing more skills. The players from these can then move into Under 11 representative programmes, or they can continue in a development program if they wish to remain playing at a social level. Hockey is a great sport for co-ordination, fitness and socialising, so if you are interested in involving your children in the sport, don’t hesitate to register them into the 10 week junior programme today. Registrations can be submitted and paid for online, simply visit the Nelson Hockey site, click on ‘News’ and scroll down to ‘2015 Junior Winter Programme’.

Hugs and kisses for triathlon finishers Monique Bergman There were plenty of hugs and kisses awaiting competitors as they crossed the finish line of the McFadden McMeekan Phillips Lawyers Nelson Women’s Triathlon on Sunday. Around 250 women competed in the event which is aimed towards women of all abilities, from beginners to more serious athletes, and includes a 5km run or 3km walk, 14km cycle and four lengths of the Riverside Pool. In its 28th year, the race is seen as a starter into triathlons by many, which was confirmed by 62 first time competi-

tors completing the course. There were four women competing in the 70 years age group, who gave some of the younger ones a run for their money. “We were really pleased with the event, everyone seemed relaxed and people were having fun, it was lovely to see families waiting for their competitor to come in and giving them lots of hugs and kisses as they crossed the finish line,” says event organiser Amanda Dykzeul. Zoe King won the run section, with Renee Hunt and Kiri Williams not far behind her.

Wolves hunt Fishing down Rabbits

Nelson elson Weekly Locally Owned and Operated


Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club

There was an upset in the rugby league results, with the Wanderers Wolves beating the Richmond Rabbits 28 to 16 at Ngawhatu Park last weekend. The Wanderers Wolves were collectively very strong across the park with the two big frontrowers, Lucaster Mati and Christian Tupuola, setting a platform up the middle. “We’ve worked pretty hard to get where we are today” says Wanderers Wolves coach, Lawrence Curdy. Richmond Rabbits coach Deon Charles says his team was well and truly beaten by a bigger and better team on the day. “They are a big side and it became pretty clear that, due to three of our props being out with injuries, we were lacking size up front on Saturday,” says

Yep, reports of fish getting caught all over the place! Just outside the cut, in the cut (20 lb snapper), Cable bay, Delaware, Cape Soucis, French Pass, Bottle point, and above Durville Island, even out on the local groper grounds and all around. So, as predicated, the fish are in seasonal transit periods as water temperatures change within the Tasman Bay. Here lies the old saying "any bait in the water" will have a chance of catching a reasonable fish, as proven recently by club member Luke Dell who snaffled another 20 lb snap on a no current, low tide situation. Tasman Bays’ fish population is starting to show signs of the massive 3-4 year perfect spawning conditions, with all species showing an increase in juvenile fish being caught at many locations. On this note, I personally would like to encourage Nelsonion fisho's to consider the option of "catch and release". I definitely am not saying to not take a feed of hardearned fish home to feed yourself, family and important others; however I am promoting the release of some of the bigger main breeding fish and in particular snapper and kingfish. There are already a lot

of very good fisherman practising catch and release principals and only really taking home enough to feed those on the boat for the day. There is just as much an adrenalin rush from having a hell demon fight with a big snapper or kingie, to then get a couple of quick photos and to watch them swim back down to the murky depths. Try it once, I am sure you will be amazed at the feeling of achievement and satisfaction. In particular, I would like to mention our king-fishery. We have potentially a world record size kingfish here, however it only takes one average-sized kingfish to feed four families. Although the limit is three per person per day, I would encourage people to only take one or two maximum if they happen to chance onto more than that in a day. The Dawnbreakers Fishing Club is a group of passionate fisho's and families who enjoy many types of fishing, please feel free to check out our Facebook or website simply by googling the club. Should you wish to join for the up-coming 2015/2016 season that starts in October, please contact us through those avenues. Enjoy your fishing and tight lines to all.

Nelson riders win 'colourful' race Nelson's Jake Stow and Ingrid Richter took out the solo riding honours, but it was the witches, brides and flying fishes that added colour to the Port Nelson Kaiteriteri SixHour Mountainbike Relay Race on Saturday. Jake completed an leg-burning 15 laps of the 7.5km circuit around the Kaiteriteri Mountainbike Park in the six-hours, while Ingrid recorded 13 which, incredibly, was more than many of the teams. Craig Tolson and Cameron Jones both recorded 14 laps to finish second and third respectively in the men's solo race, while Bridget McMillan completed 11 laps and super-veter-

an Liz Eskrick rode eight in the women's. The father and son pairing of Mark and Henry Jaine was the fastest team, completing 16 laps with Henry, 18, also recording the fastest lap of the day at 19min 8sec. The Wild Waka Women rode 13 laps to win the women's team's race with the Brook Badasses, Brent Edwards and Ash and Naomi Whitehead, riding 15 laps to win the mixed section. The race for the best fancy dress prize was just as competitive with Emma Bawtree's Wheel Woman Witches team, who rode the course wearing witch's hats and black cloaks on bikes fitted with broom sticks,

Simon Bloomberg Reporter taking the honours. A group of marine biologists from Cawthron and NIWA, Anna Berthelsen, Megan Carter, Robyn Dunmore and CJ McClay, showed their true colours by wearing fishy-looking bike helmets, while the Bridal Gear's Jenny Ferrier, Fay McKenzie and Deb Morris rode in wedding dresses. There was also a big contingent of young riders giving the race a real family feel and

organiser Guy Trainor says they will aim to cater for the youngsters next year. Guy says they designed the course to keep the more advanced riders happy by providing a steeper alternative section, but next year they want to do the same for young riders, "Some parts of the course were a bit hard for a few of the young riders so after the race we talked about including an easier course along Cruise Control for them next year," Guy says. "But we were very pleased with how things went and I think all the riders enjoyed it." Guy says 240 riders competed in the race, completing a total of 1055 laps.

Pre-relationship/post-relationship counselling

A Stitch in Time !


• 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!
