Want to be your own boss? Jacob Chandler

Have you ever thought of owning your own business? Well, it’s a good time to be a business owner in Nelson, with plenty of options on offer and the local Chamber of Commerce saying business confidence is high. A quick search on TradeMe reveals around 150 business opportunities up for grabs in Nelson, from a $1000 dog-breeding website to a $9 million motor inn. If you fancy yourself as a budding publican then maybe the Sprig & Fern Tavern in Brightwater is up your alley or, if you’re more of a fine dining expert, you could buy the Harbour Light Bistro on Rocks Rd. Maybe you want to follow in the footsteps of former Masterchef finalist Paula Saengthian-Ngam by buying her cafe, Paula’s Plate. It’s fully licensed with lease

options till 2025. There’s plenty to choose from if you want to become a street vendor, there’s six separate carts available on the trade site. If you don’t have the will power to not eat everything in sight, then maybe take up a job as a hotelier and purchase one of the many accommodation businesses in the region. A spare $1.15 million floating around could land you the Palazzo Motor Lodge, or for another $5000 the Sails Motor Lodge on Trafalgar St might be the one for you. It has peaked at number one on TripAdvisor in its two and a half year operation. There are plenty of franchises looking to make their mark around the country too, with Esquires, Carls Jr and Brumbies all looking at opening in the region.

Fishing fleet blessed ahead of hoki season The sun may have been out but the wind was chilly, as thousands of people made their way down to the Sunderland Marine Pier to celebrate the annual Blessing of the Fleet ceremony on Sunday. The event, postponed from Saturday due to rain, followed on from fireworks held on Friday night to mark the beginning of the fishing season. Bishop Richard Elena, Reverend Jeff Cotton, Father David Gruschow and Archdeacon Andy Joseph led the blessing, with musical performances

provided by the Nelson Male Voice Choir, the Nelson Brass Band and the Nelson Christian Academy Choir. Chairperson of the Blessing of the Fleet, Mike Smith, says the turnout was better than he expected. He says about 26 per cent of Nelson’s working population are somehow involved in the fishing industry. “I think people are starting to come to realise how much the fishing industry means to Nelson, which they haven’t done for donkey’s years. The

service is so poignant which is why people keep coming back.” Sue Sweeney, whose husband died at sea three years ago, tossed a bouquet into the water before a minutes silence was held, broken by eight bell tolls. “She was very, very emotional. I just hope it was a wee bit of a closure for her,” Mike says. With the increased hoki quota and low dollar, Mike says the fishing season is looking positive. For video on this story, visit

a good time to be a business owner in Nelson. “There are lots of opportunities in our region, and Nelson business owners have some good things going for them,” she says. “We also have a proactive council who are committed to businesses doing well.” She says that because Nelson is very seasonal, the winter


months can be difficult for hospitality and retail business, resulting in a high turnover of those sorts of businesses, which is what Nelson is experiencing. “Our region has a rich history in people moving here to start a business. Businesses need to have a good plan, and expect the first one to three years to be challenging.”

$13M to upgrade Trafalgar Centre Locally Owned and Operated

In Collaboration with Morrison Square, Late Night on Hardy & Uniquely Nelson.



Andrew Board

5-8pm, 30th July, Morrison Square

The demolition of the northern end of the Trafalgar Centre, as part of a $13 million upgrade of the city’s premier spectator venue, has been recommended to Nelson City Council. At a meeting in the council chambers on Thursday, councillors heard a report presented by council project manager Richard Kirby, which recommended the demolition and then rebuild of the northern end of the centre, including the Victory Room, foyer and toilets. The centre was closed in December 2013 after the council – which owns the building – deemed it a major risk to life in the event of a big earthquake. Richard says the report showed the current building was “brittle” in the event of an earthquake, but that liquefaction would not be a major issue. The recommended option from the report would see $12.956 million spent on the centre, which would include the demolition and rebuild of the northern end, strengthening work on the western edge

Nelson’s main events centre has been closed since December 2013. Councillors will vote on whether to accept a $13 million upgrade this week. of the new southern end and $7 million worth of work to the main building. Currently around $10 million is set aside in the long term plan for the upgrade of the building. If that option was picked up by councillors this Thursday, it would mean the proposed northern end wouldn’t open until June next year, four months after the deadline council put on the building reopening earlier this year. Richard says the rest of the centre could be opened, but with some disruption. To pull it down and build a new one on the same site would cost

around $25-$30 million, says Richard. Mayor Rachel Reese says she’s pleased more investigation work was done because the cost is a lot lower than the original estimates. “I think he [Richard] summed it up well when he said essentially what we’re getting is a refurbished building that will set us up for the next 50 years at half the price of what a new one would cost.” Nelson’s Gaire Thompson spoke from the public gallery and says too much time and money has been spent already. Councillors will make a decision on the report this Thursday morning.

House Fire on Tasman St: Firefighters booted down the door of a Tasman St home last Tuesday morning after a fan heater caught fire in the bedroom area of the house. Three fire trucks attended the blaze at the house, owned by The Prince Albert Backpackers and Bar owner Naiane Denardin, at around 8am. Senior Station Officer Craig Davies says the crew used a high pressure hose to contain the fire inside the small house very quickly. Dolphins visit Nelson: Four small dolphins were photographed happily swimming in Nelson Haven off Tahunanui beach on Friday morning. Nelson man Chris Ratcliffe says he was in an inflatable boat with two young children that morning when he came across the dolphins. “I thought I saw some the other day but this time we definitely did. I had my phone with me so was able to get a few photos.” He says the boat was borrowed off a mate and the two six year-olds were thrilled to see the dolphins play. “They were pretty happy, they loved it.”

The middle flat of three was alight. Firefighters had the fire under control by around 6.30pm. A neighbour living two doors down, who did not wish to be named, says she was alerted to the fire by the noise it created. “It started with an explosion and it was fast.” She says she had spoken with the occupants of the rear flat to make sure they were okay. “There was smoke damage in back but I’m not sure about the front. It didn’t look good,” she says. “The fire has affected two families plus [the occupant’s] own.” The fire is not being treated as suspicious.

Stoke gets a history lesson from council: Four new information panels have been installed in Kane Lane in Stoke, between Benge and Co and Squires. The panels each focus on one aspect of the suburbs history, from the origins and planning of Stoke to its businesses and pastimes.

Contaminated slipway to be cleaned up Port Nelson’s Calwell Slip site has been contaminated by chemicals used in boat maintenance since the 1970s, but new funding, announced by the government on Saturday, will allow for plans to be made to deal with the chemicals. Environment Minister Nick Smith says the government will provide $200,000 worth of funding to the Port Company as part of a partnership with them and the Nelson City Council. “Nelson has an incredibly rich history of boat maintenance and we want to maintain that.” He says, although the chemicals found in the slip are not harmful to public health, he is worried about contamination spreading further into the harbour. The chemicals that will be cleaned up are both copper and TPP [Tributyltin]. Tributyltin was used as a surface coating to reduce the growth of weed and other organisms on ship hulls and was

Port Nelson CEO Martin Byrne and Nick Smith at the Calwell Slipway site on Friday. discontinued during the 1990’s, although residual levels may still be present on some older vessels. Port Nelson CEO Martin Byrne says the port are matching the government’s funding and actual decontamination work will most likely begin during the 2016 and 2017 financial year. The Calwell Slipway has been in operation since 1970 and is the third largest slipway in New Zealand. It is now managed so that all contaminated material from ship maintenance is collected, avoiding further contamination.

Students suffered serious burns, multiple lacerations and bruising at Garin College last week but still came out of the classroom smiling. That’s because none of the injuries were real with the 20 school-aged students spending last Tuesday learning about gory special effects in a horrormakeup workshop, as part of the Ministry of Inspiration’s school holiday programme.

A Nelson woman has made the finals of the World of WearableArts awards for the first time after two previous knock backs, and says her success is a “long time coming”. Claire Bywater is just one of seven designers from the Nelson region to be selected to appear on stage in this year’s show, which is now in its 28th year. Of the 128 garments selected to take part in the awards show, half are from international designers. Claire, 51, and her creation “Dreams of McQueen,” has been six years in the making, and is inspired by the late fashion designer, Alexander McQueen. “The idea has been in my head since I fell in love with paper mache. I thought it would be fun to combine hard materials with fabric for a crazy take on the red carpet fashion world,” says Claire. “Alexander McQueen used really unexpected materials in his avant garde work and had groundbreaking ideas. “I can’t think how many hours

in total have gone into this and I probably don’t want to. It becomes something of an obsession and the families of the WOW entrants should probably have their own support group.” Claire, who has previously taught at the Design and Arts College of New Zealand, says that she first heard about WOW while taking art classes in Christchurch, and she first entered back in 1999 with no success. She tried again in 2012 and her creation had some positive feedback, but ultimately still wasn’t selected. “After a shift to Nelson and some time off from teaching, there was something I had to do - have one more go at getting into WOW.” Claire says she is feeling relieved to have finally been selected. “When the email arrived, I was home alone and in total disbelief as I’d readied myself for bad news. I had to read it over and again and then phoned my husband, children and friends, by which time it was sinking in,” she says. “I cannot wait to go to Wellington with my family and celebrate being part of the show.”

“It’s fantastic, and to come in with Habitat for Humanity is a perfect fit. As we progress and get on our feet we’ll really help each other out. We’ll have to do it up, but if we can’t do up our own shed, what sort of men are we?” The shed is slightly smaller than the Richmond shed but does have a sizeable yard and some of that is under cover. Graeme thinks it will take around six months for the walls to be lined, roof fixed and power fitted. At that stage the shed will be secure and open to accept donated tools. Habitat for Humanity Nelson chairman

Rob Silcock says they were happy to offer the space, because like Menzshed, they’re “beggars”. “The way I look at it is that we’re two beggars and we’re helping each other out. They’ve got a huge task to get that shed up and running, it’s not a gimme by any means. But it’s somewhere where they can go with parking, yard space, and once they get it fixed it will be a roof over their heads and lockable.” Graeme says the group will be hosting its AGM at Lambretta’s Café on July 26 at 4pm. He encourages anyone interested to come along.

Building Homes and Hope in partnership with local families.

The men finally have their shed – but they’ll have to prove their worth with the building needing plenty of work before it will be ready to house their tools. Menzshed Whakau has been searching for a suitable community shed where woodworkers, metalworkers and handymen can create together. The year-long search ended this month when Habitat for Humanity offered a shed at the back of their new Re-Store on Quarantine Rd, which is due to open in early September. The Richmond-based Menzshed Waimea has been running for four years and has been a huge success, with many retired men coming down to make the most of the tools and space and being able to pass on their knowledge to younger members. Its chairman, Philip Chapman, is also a committee member of the Nelson version and he says it does take time to get established. “It took four or five of us sitting around for a year and a half hoping, and all of a sudden a shed is there and we had 150 members.” He says 40 of those members are from Nelson and he believes many will be keen to get involved in the new shed. Menzshed Whakatu chairman Graeme O’Brien says they’re delighted to have been offered the space, but admitted it will take some work to get up to scratch.

A new charity is hoping to give Nelson’s abused children some small comfort, with a “Trauma Teddy”. Tedz Project started in the Bay of Plenty in 2012 but has since spread throughout the country, including Nelson. The project collects donated teddy bears, blankets, torches, colouring books and notepads, and puts them together in “snuggle packs”. They are then given to police to give to children going through the forensic examination process, which is where abused children need to give evidence about their abuse. Beth Hunter saw the charity online and contacted them to say she would like to help. That led to her setting up the Nelson

Beth says they’re after donations of a soft toy, torch, notebook and pen, colouring books and crayons and blankets. All donations must be new and will then be sorted by volunteers. “We’re relying on getting enough donations and then we’ll be able to have workshops where our volunteers will come together and put the packs together.” Beth says the first packs will be delivered next month. Drop off points are at Ecomoon, Elim Church and INP Medical Centre.

Ford Club to celebrate founder’s birthday

True-blue Nelsonians have a good excuse to take their pride and joys for a spin this Sunday, when the Nelson Classic Ford Club hold its annual cruise out to Rabbit Island to celebrate Henry Ford’s birthday. For Stoke’s Lorraine McKenzie it will be a family affair, with her son and daughter also owning Fords. Lorraine helped start the club back in 2002 with her kids. “An old guy advertised wanting a Cortina club but there weren’t enough in Nelson to get one going. At the time my son had a Cortina, my daughter had a Zephyr and I had a Mustang, so we thought, ‘why don’t we start a Ford club?’” Lorraine’s Mustang could also be the oldest

in the country. She says it was manufactured in March 1964 and the car was launched the following month. While the Mustang is her pride and joy, she admits it isn’t that nice to drive. “I’ve only been around Nelson in it because it is hard to drive, but I love it and I’ve always loved cars and loved Fords.” The founder of the Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford, was born on July 30, 1863, and every year the club invites all Ford owners to attend the birthday celebrations. Sunday’s event will be a good opportunity to inspect some of the best Fords in the Nelson region. Cars will need to be set up at Rabbit Island by 10 am, with the public viewing from about 11 am to 2.30 pm.

Beer and bites night

A tasting of boutique beer and food is being held at the Honest Lawyer this Wednesday night. Josh Scott of Moa Brewing Co will host the evening of gourmet nibbles, all expertly matched and complemented by a steady flow of the brewery’s award-winning craft beers. The Moa Beer’s Boutique Beer and Bites costs $30 and includes six beers, each matched with three nibbles. It starts at 6.30pm on July 22. Tickets at the Honest Lawyer.

Wedding dress doing the rounds Andrew Board

When Donna Hippolite got married, her husband Sam was dying and the wedding had to be moved forward to beat his funeral. Two years on Sam’s still going strong and Donna decided to pass on her “lucky dress” to another bride – for free. She put her dress on the Facebook page “Pay it Forward Nelson” and said “it’s free for a budding bride.” She then chose from the people replying and earlier this month the dress was used for its second wedding. That same dress is now being passed on to a third bride and Donna says the positive response to it encouraged her to start a register of free wedding

Rock ‘n’ Roll Dancers, Tuesday, July 7: Sun City Rockers members Clara Jones, Cindy Verry, Deb Corbett and Andrew Aldridge, struck success at the South Island Interclub Rock’n’Roll Challenge last weekend in Christchurch. Clara and Cindy were competing together and were awarded third in the Best Dressed category and first place in their open same-sex section, while Deb and Andrew got first place in the novice section. While Cindy and Clara unfortunately didn’t qualify for nationals, they are looking forward to trying again next year. Newcomers to Nelson, Tuesday, July 7: The Nelson Newcomer’s Network hosted a successful evening at Rhythm and Brown on Wednesday, 8. The event saw around 15 people turn up \July ADVERTISING to socialise and network with others who are also new to the area, although the event is also open to existing residents who want to meet new people. Organisers say the event has really grown, with earlier meetings only attracting a few people.

dresses. “I just thought ‘hang on a minute, there’s so many people out there who can’t afford to get married and people have dresses sitting there, let’s do something’.” Since Friday, Donna has had various wedding and flower girl dresses donated to be “paid forward”. Donna says everyone deserves to feel special on their wedding day but for a lot of people a dress is just too expensive. She says anyone who would like to donate their wedding dresses can call her on 027 484 7737.

Passion for geckos will live on in Brook Sanctuary Rex McDowall has left big shoes to fill at the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary and will be remembered for his infectious passion for geckos and skinks. The former co-ordinator of the lizard monitoring programme died last month, leaving behind the efforts he spearheaded years earlier. Sanctuary General Manager Hudson Dodd says Rex will be sorely missed by all the sanctuary team. “Rex was a stalwart volunteer of the sanctuary. He was a very level-headed and calm individual in the face of the exasperating task of finding lizards.” With a background as a private eye, Rex

also helped to install the security systems that protect the sanctuary. Two years ago, Jeff Bryant, a science teacher at Nayland College, spent six months at the Sanctuary alongside Rex attempting to monitor the highly-evasive Maitai Naultinus Stellatus green forest gecko after receiving a Royal Society Fellowship. Looking for one of the endemic geckos is like looking for a needle in a haystack. The Stellatus gecko is only just ‘hanging in’, waiting for protection at the Brook Sanctuary. It is hoped the numbers will increase with the possibility of establishing a future breeding programme for the species.

The Maitai Naultinus Stellatus green forest gecko. Inset: Former co-ordinator of the sanctuary’s lizard monitoring programme, Rex McDowell. Geckos are a favourite for collectors of endangered species to steal. The Brook

Waimarama Sanctuary has a map detailing the GPS sightings of the rare geckos, but is keeping it secret. During the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, a gang of poachers was travelling around New Zealand in a camper van with a list of GPS points detailing where rare lizards and geckos had been sighted. The Brook was on their list. In 2012, a German reptile poacher was jailed for trying to smuggle rare native geckos out of New Zealand. All New Zealand lizards are protected by law. They must not be kept or captured without a permit issued by the Department of Conservation

Traffic to be diverted from Atawhai Drive State highway traffic along Atawhai Drive will be diverted onto Atawhai Crescent, to allow for the trenching and laying of pipes across from the new Corder Park wastewater pump station site. The road will be closed on two occasions overnight to allow for the continued upgrade works. The detour will be in place on the nights of Wednesday, July 22 and Monday, August 10 from 7pm-6am with a temporary speed reduction of 30kph will be in place in the area. To ensure minimal disturbance to the adjacent residential properties, no heavy vehicle engine braking will be permitted. Electronic Variable Message Signboards will be located along Atawhai Drive north and south of the work site, prior to, and during the detour operation.

Welcome to the first edition of our additional way of contacting our members, also to those of you thinking of becoming members, as well as you readers who may not be aware of Nelson Grey Powers’ activities and benefits. At 2015 AGM we promised to bring positive action to our organisation and by taking this step we are hoping to show the public we are honouring that pledge. Are you noticing the rise in your power accounts? Now that we are in the throes of a cold winter have you thought of joining Grey Power Electricity? This is available to those who are members of Grey Power and is one method of reducing the cost of winter heating. On occasions Nelson Grey Power gets requests from various organisations around the region, we assist if we can but at all times we must adhere to our non political stance and keep away from controversial subjects as you will have supporters from either side and to support one side or the other would result in Grey Power being the loser.

Making it easier to do business with us

Professional, creative, and a marketing expert, are just a few ways you could describe Janice Emery from RE/MAX. Janice’s career features both national and international experience, working with major corporations on both television and print campaigns where her communication and problem solving skills, her excellent work ethic and attention to detail, were of utmost importance. Returning to Nelson after working in London, Janice joined the real estate industry as a marketing and sales consultant in 2007. Janice brings an abundance of professionalism, reliability and ‘outside the box’ thinking to every property she markets, not to mention a positive attitude where nothing is too much trouble, something her clients love her for. Janice has local knowledge, a proven track record in real estate sales and a strong desire to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients. It doesn’t take a genius to know that every property is unique, but not everyone is as proficient as Janice at creating a marketing solution to best reflect clients and their property’s requirements. For a real estate agent who knows what she’s doing, give Janice a call today on 548 7705 or 027 447 0805.

He brings extensive knowledge in home mortgage lending and business and commercial banking, so clients’ discussions with Gary will draw on significant depths of experience. When Gary’s not helping people realise their property dreams, he can usually be found with his partner and their young son, fishing and diving in Tasman Bay, Golden Bay or Marlborough Sounds, or in the hills chasing some venison.

Buying & Selling

Property Buying or selling your home and property is an exciting experience. Being open and honest, with excellent communication and negotiation skills, is paramount and I constantly strive to raise the bar with my work. With my attention to detail, your property will be presented and marketed at its best. Representing Wellington in squash at both junior and senior level, and being number 1 in Wellington taught me that determination and hard work gets results. After a career in IT in Wellington, accounting and marketing in Nelson, owning and renovating numerous homes and rental properties, and working as an interior designer, real estate is an ideal career - and a real passion of mine. After sailing the Abel Tasman for over 15 years with my children, and living in Nelson for the last 6 years, I am passionate about my home region. It is a wonderful place to live. I look forward to making your next real estate experience exceed all your expectations. Selling? Talk to Carol at Refine & Redesign about revamping your home to ensure it reaches its full potential. Through careful staging of the inside of your home, Carol can present it in such a way that it generates more interest, sells quickly and at a higher price. From interior design mini makeovers, to complete stagings, Carol can help you achieve a magazine look on Carol Hargadon a budget. Carol can makeover a tired looking home, into a fresh, uplifted dream home for potential buyers. From a few cushions, to soft or full furnishings, Carol is able to dress each room as required. Ex-rentals and vacant homes can particularly benefit from Carol’s services. Vacant homes are known to take longer to sell as they often feel cold and uninviting, and it is difficult to judge room sizes and potential. Carol can provide the furniture and accessories to create a look and feel for the home that will boost its selling power. Bellamy’s do things a little differently to the rest of the real estate industry. While you can trust them to handle the sale of residential, commercial, rural and industrial property, plus the sale of businesses, you won’t be paying them a commission or a fixed fee. Bellamy’s are proud to act as property consultants who work for you, representing you as either a buyer or seller and charging you an hourly rate for services provided. Basically, if your property sells within eight chargeable hours, no matter how much it sells for, the bill is exactly the same. Penelope Rollston is a Residential and Luxury Home Specialist with Bellamy’s Real Estate in Nelson, and has consistently been one of the top sales people for the Nelson region since 2007. Penelope has the drive, passion and commitment it takes to bring both vendors and buyers the best results, constantly striving to remove the worry and stress from the process. Let Penelope do the work so you can enjoy planning the next step in your life. Contact her today on 027 359 4558 or email penelope. For more information see and watch the John Campbell video.

Winners from '53 inspire Wanderers Simon Bloomberg

"All the young guys know about them and what they did for the club," Trael says. "It was very humbling and inspirational having them in the sheds with us - you just wanted to go out and play for them. "I think the old guys enjoyed it too, just being around rugby again and being in there with the players. They looked pretty happy about it." Trael says former players often presented jerseys to the Waimea College First XV when he was playing for the team and he thought it would be a good motivational idea for Wanderers - and he was right. "I saw an article [in Waimea Weekly] about the 1955 Wanderers team and me and my brother [Wanderers fullback Jessie Pitman] thought it would be good if we could get them along. We asked Fraze [team manager Frazer Lochhead] if it was possible to get them together and he did the rest." Frazer says Trael's motivational masterpiece gave their team a massive boost. He says they had been under a lot of pres-

A group of Wanderers rugby legends inspired the latest generation of the club's players to produce another championship winning performance when they defeated Kahurangi 21-12 in the Car Company Nelson Bays division one final at Trafalgar Park on Saturday. Taylors Contracting Wanderers had been beaten finalists in the last two division one finals, but this year it was a case of third time lucky as they secured the Nelson Bays crown on Saturday to go with the Tasman Trophy they won last month. Although Wanderers have developed into a more mature, battle-hardened unit over the last three years, captain Trael Joss says they were fortunate to have a secret weapon for this year's final. Five members of the club's first and, until this year, last champion-winning team handed out the jerseys to the players before Saturday's final and Trael says their presence proved to be inspirational.

sure to win after losing the last two finals and the presence of some of the champion 1955 team instilled confidence in the young players. Laurie Reade, who along with his brother Barry, Stan Friend, Alan Bell and Murray Nicholls, were the members of the champion 1955 team who handed out the jerseys on Saturday, modestly down-played their role. "We just said a few words here and there but the players seemed very appreciative," Laurie says. For the record, Wanderers scored the game's only two tries with hooker Dan McLachlan scoring in the 27th minute and centre Sione Holani crossing early in the second half. Morne Van de Berg kicked a penalty and a conversion while Jessie kicked two penalties. Mike Wells kicked four penalties for Kahurangi. Waimea Old Boys won the division two final 17-12 against Wanderers, while the Town women's team beat Country 18-0 in the early games at Trafalgar Park.

Seals, Tahuna, Thistle and Bogans wrap up titles Andrew Board They must be among the strangest names in football, but the Seals, Thistle and the Bogans have all won their respective football leagues, along with the more appropriately named Tahuna FC. Suburbs Seals were the main talking point of a busy Saturday afternoon for Nelson Bays Football. The defending division two champions stepped up into the top tier this year and remarkably won it in their first attempt. Stacked full of former Mainland League players, the Seals deserved the title, although it may have left a few red faces among the grade's more established teams. In the second division, Tahuna FC claimed the title several weeks ago, after challenges from FC Nelson Locomotive and Motueka faded late in the season. In a congested third division, Richmond Thistle sneaked ahead of clubmates the Hornbills, FC Nelson and Tahuna FC to claim the title. Thistle beat Tahuna FC, on Saturday to take top spot. There were four possible winners going into the final weekend of the season. In the newly-created Mas-

The Richmond Bogans celebrate wrapping up the Nelson Bays Football Masters Division at Jubilee Park on Saturday. ters division, the Bogans took an unassailable lead with still one game remaining. The Richmond-affiliated team beat Wakefield 3-1 on Saturday to claim the title. The Bogans held off a strong challenge from FC Nelson for the title, with Mapua in third. In the womens division, Nelson College for Girls top the grade with FC Nelson and Suburbs one point behind them. NCG and FC Nelson play each other this weekend in a game that could decide the title. NCG have two games in hand though. Nelson Bays Football general manager Clive Beaumont says, with the leagues now out of the way the foucus turns to the




Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club Winter fishing has been hot and cold with some good bite days and some not so successful fishing days. This why it's called fishing, and why most fishers have stories of that one day where everything went right and it was the best fishing ever. That is some of what keeps people heading back out to try their luck again and again. However it is not always about just the fish in the bin, it's about the experience, awesome scenery, unusual catches, the power of the sea, the amazing sunrises, and banter with the crew. One thing that can change your day is to use a variety of techniques to see what will be most effective. There is no rhyme or reason some days what may work, it may be bait or artificial baits, jigs, slow jigs, softplastics, lures, flasher rigs, livebaits, dead-baits - the possibilities are many. Some days it is a certain colour that may be getting the most attention, style of jig, type of bait or fishing technique like slow jigging or very

lightly weighted rigs that may be the winning combo. Everytime I fish I learn something new from that day or from others. Fishingwise, there is still some very good fish getting caught around the district, kingfish, snapper and bluecod being the most common. The fishing pressure from more and more boats in the same areas is starting to show with less fish being caught on those days, recently we witnessed 35-40 boats in the same spots, all with sounders pinging down, and, this proved to be a very slow days fishing for most. A combination of the sounders, motor noises from outboards and inboards, all resonating down to the depths. This is when it may be a chance to try a new area away from the masses and learn your own spots for future success. So next time you are out try something new or different, it may change your success and, even if not, it was worth a try. Enjoy the winter fishing all.

cup competitions. "It's been another great season and the leagues are the barometer, everyone can have an off-day during a cup game but usually the best team comes to the top over three months." He says there was plenty of excitment across the grades and says the secret to success is keeping the divisions competitive. "The one great success of my time here is the increase of senior footballers. In 2008 only 23 senior teams, we now have 30. If you give people good competition for a long time you get good numbers." Cup games for the three top divisions start this Saturday, with the Masters starting the following week.

U17 netballers put in good performance at nationals Carol Cook Russell Curtains Nelson Under 17 representative team had a tough road to hoe when they left for their New Zealand Under 17 Tournament in Mt Maunganui without their inspirational captain Poppy Restieaux and their vice captain Taylor Kirker, who was to take over from Poppy. The girls had time to come to terms with Poppy’s loss, however Taylor’s withdrawal on account on injury was just a couple of days before departure. However, to the girls’ credit, they came together to make the most of their opportunities. Although their ultimate goal was to make the coveted top sixteen, their first task was a top two finish in pool play. Nelson made the perfect start with a convincing win over Hamilton City B 41-27 with Tali Uia leading the charge from goal shoot, while Natasha Bannister had a strong performance at goal keep. Nelson then lost to a strong Kapi Mana team 25-41, before bouncing back to beat the Harbourside Invitation side 33-12 and then Auckland 2, 43-15. Wanganui was the game which got away – it could have gone either way as the teams could not be separated at half-time. Wanganui were up by two at three-quarter time, however a few wee errors crept into Nelson’s play and they ended on the wrong side of the ledger 27-32. Nelson then stepped up again to beat Wairarapa 39-9 and Horowhenua 44-25. The play off for 25th against Rotorua could have gone either way. Nelson played well and coped better with their physical opposition and, although they had a three goal lead at half-time, Rotorua chipped away at the deficit and finally record a 29-24 win. Coach Mandy Whiting had high praise for her players, saying “they were a really, wonderful bunch who had great attitudes”.
