Sunken trawler lifted

A historic 100 year old trawler that spent two months underwater at Fisherman’s Wharf was refloated on Friday. The 16 metre Kaikohe sank during flooding that hit many parts of the region in February. After two failed attempts by the Nelson Fire Service to bring it up, a heavy duty, 10,000 litreper-minute vacuum pump from Christchurch got the job done. Ross MacRae, who is helping to renovate the boat, says it took about 45 minutes of actual pumping to get it floating again. Ross says that the boat also sank last year, and amazingly the time it has spent underwater has had “very little effect” on it.

In fact, he says it was probably good for it, with to the seawater “pickling” the hard wood. “There’s nothing wrong with the hull - now it’s up, it will stay up,” he says. Burt Fox from Lift and Shift says it was a “pretty simple job,” and they even managed to attract a crowd. “We had a few people watching, it was pretty hardcase. As we kept going, more and more people stopped to watch,” he says. Ross says the boat was definitely worth refloating, and just before it sank he was

Warriors get dirty at Happy Valley Warriors of all shapes and sizes had to run, army crawl under barbed wire, climb walls, balance along logs, carry sandbags and monkey bar their way through the muddy Wairua Warrior course on Saturday morning. The obstacle race wound through the river and up the looming hills at the Happy Valley Adventure Park, with 6km, 12km and 12km elite

Brittany Spencer Reporter courses featuring over 20 obstacles. Four hundred and forty racers took part, with officials dishing out burpee penalties to racers who failed to complete the obstacles correctly. With the fastest time of the day, and

in his first obstacle race, was Wakefield’s Ethan Helliwell, completing the 12km elite course in 1:36:37. “It was more challenging than I expected and it over-met my expectations, the atmosphere was wicked, and it was an extreme amount of fun. “I wasn’t expecting to win because

Warriors get dirty at Happy Valley FROM PAGE 1 there were people from out of town that had done that sort of thing before, but I was really stoked.” Also making waves on the course was wheelchairbound David Trotter who featured in the Nelson Weekly two months ago, on a mission to raise funds for an all-terrain wheelchair that would enable him to complete the race with the help of his teammates. David and his teammates Simon Topp, Seija McIntosh, Jay Blazek, Jesse Clifton and Greg Witika pushed and pulled his wheelchair under, over and through the muddy 6km course. Around one hundred people lined up along the fence, chanting and forming a

guard of honour from the last obstacle to the finish line. Teammate, organiser and trainer Greg Witika says the group came in at a good three hours and 40 seconds but it wasn’t about the time, it was about making a moment. “David went exceptionally well, he wanted to try everything we came up to. He was on an absolute high, he’s just grinning from ear to ear and he’s in that moment of what do I do now, where to next? “Everyone out on the course who came past was wishing David all the best and giving him high-fives, he was stealing kisses as much as he could, it was brilliant.” Greg says David’s last obstacle, an A frame, was probably the most special.






Hurry, only 4 spaces left on this tour

“That was the obstacle he really wanted to try 12 months ago so it was a really cool moment, and then for him to walk that last 20 metres to the finish line was really special. “Those are the moments that you can’t buy or create, they just sort of happen and we were just lucky to be there and experience it because it’s things like that that create memories.” New Zealand’s first and only elite obstacle racer, Joshua Bishop, says the sport is making major inroads because of events like the Wairua Warrior. “This is big for New Zealand, to go from running around in farm paddocks to something slightly more established is cool, I’m stoked to be a part of it all.”

New apprentice to get free lunch too Andrew Board As if starting a new job wasn’t good enough, the package for one local apprentice builder just keeps getting better. Two weeks ago, builder Andrew Martin put out the call for an apprentice to work for his small company, via a story in Nelson Weekly. Mitre 10 Mega then jumped on board to help Andrew’s new employee by donating a brand new tool belt and tools worth $400 for whoever got the job. And now Subway Richmond has also joined in on the fun,

offering a voucher so the new apprentice won’t have to worry about lunch for the first month or so, either. Subway Richmond’s franchise co-owner Rob Hambrook says their business believes in being part of the community and they are happy to help Andrew find a new apprentice. “Any business that takes on apprentices is doing a great job for the community, so we’re more than happy to support this initiative,” Rob says. “I’m sure the new apprentice will enjoy getting a free lunch from us as well.”

So far, around 70 applications have been sent in and Andrew says he’s delighted with the response. “Obviously, there have been an overwhelming number of people and that’s good to have a good number to choose from.” He says he’s getting plenty of people asking him about the job. “Everyone keeps asking me about it and definitely a lot of people have seen it.” Applications close at 5pm Thursday, April 14.

New pokie machines set for Victory Kate Russell

Support the Link? Txt Yes to 875 or email YES to Progress Nelson Tasman

Plans for nine new pokie machines that will be part of a proposed TAB in Nelson are not going down well with local organisations, who are worried about the impact it will have on nearby neighbourhoods. Nelson City Council have received an application from the New Zealand Racing Board for the establishment of an alcohol-free TAB on Vanguard St, which is part of the site currently occupied by United Video. The video rental store is moving to a new site in Whakatu Square in early May. If approved, it will bring the number of pokie machines in Nelson to 213. There is currently a cap of 273 machines in the city. The council’s group manager of community services, Chris Ward, says resource consent was granted to Elbee Investments Ltd for the existing United Video building to be demolished and replaced with a new building, back in February.

The site for the proposed new TAB building. Providing the NZRB meets the criteria of the Gambling Policy 2013, he says the council “will have no reason to decline the application”. But several community organisations are questioning the location of the venue, and the impact it will have on the Victory and Washington Valley areas. Matthew McMillan, from Nelson Problem Gambling Services, says the proposed TAB is “not a positive thing” for Nelson. “We know that pokies and TAB’s tend to be located in the poorer areas, and that one risk factor for problem gambling is how closely you are located to a gambling venue,” he says. With 18 pokies already in operation at the nearby Postboy

Hotel, it would bring the total number of machines at the Gloucester/Vanguard intersection to 27. He is also concerned that the other part of the premises could become a liquor outlet, with even more pokie machines. “If this is the case we will have a ‘gambling den’ with a TAB,” he says. The current Gambling Policy states that a new TAB venue must not being within 100 metres of any playground, kindergarten, early childhood centre, school, place of worship, or an ATM. Matthew says staff at Problem Gambling Services have measured the distance from the United Video store to an ATM at the nearby New World supermarket at 92m. Kindra Douglas from the Victory Community Centre says pokies in the area are a “real bone of contention” with her. “It’s disappointing,” she says. “But there is nothing we can do to stop it if they meet all the criteria.”

For Giants fans, the latest game was like Christmas – there were presents everywhere. First was the performance on the court from the players, who swept away the hapless Hawkes Bay Hawks 107-83, to secure their second home win from as many starts. Then, everyone with a Mike Pero Nelson Giants match ticket scored a free cheeseburger from team sponsor McDonalds Nelson and Tahunanui as the hosts scored more than 100 points in the game – a promotion it is doing for every home game. Finally, the selfie competition kicked into action and Vince Cooper scored himself $50 cash. The selfie competition will run for every Giants home game this year. To win, you simply need to download the

At three-quarter time a winner will be picked and they will take home the cash. All of the photos will be uploaded to during the game. On the court, Raymond Cowels III was the standout, scoring 34 of his team’s points.

Finn Delany and captain Sam Dempster both scored 14 with Delany in particular having a very strong game. The Giants next home game is this Saturday night, when they host the Waitakere Super City Rangers, tip-off is at 7pm. Tickets are available from Call-a-Geek Nelson, Jack Robins Stadium in Stoke and Richmond Mall, or at the door.

Property values jump again

The value of Nelson homes continues to rise – with the latest statistics show a 4.3 per cent increase in the past three months. Values rose 8.9 per cent year-onyear and the average value in the city is now $446,860, while home values in the Tasman District rose 1.1 per cent over the past three months and 5.1 per cent year on year. QV Nelson registered valuer Craig Russell says it has been a strong start to the year in the region with the recent interest rate cuts and strong migration fuelling house prices. “We have seen a continuation of a proactive market with properties selling in a short time frame with asking prices typically being

Tattooed volunteer finds a home with Presbyterian Support Kate Russell Good company and a chance to ‘get out of his comfort zone’ is what keeps local man Shane Torrence volunteering with Nelson Presbyterian support, and the heavily-tattooed helper has been dubbed a “volunteer extraordinaire” by his colleagues. After losing his legs and some of his sight to Type 1 diabetes, Shane was unable to continue his job as a painter and decorator – so he decided to become a volunteer and hasn’t looked back since. Shane said that, initially, he was turned away from one volunteer group because of his tattoos and shaved head. “They didn’t have a place for me,” says Shane. “People take me differently because of my appearance.” But then someone suggested Presbyterian Support, and Day Services Manager Trish Armstrong decided to give him a chance. He has now been there for four-and-a-half years and says he will be there “until they tell me to bugger off.” As a volunteer for Enliven Positive Aging Services, Shane helps out with the Totara programme – a day club where frail or isolated people can get

He is also a paid part-time employee, working in the kitchen for three lunch periods a week. “At first, I was completely out of my comfort zone, but the people were so friendly, welcoming and accepting. I get on with them all very well,”

says Shane. “It’s funny, I’m just over 50 and the ladies are just over 70, but they have such a great sense of humour and we always have a laugh together. I think I’m the only one who can get away with tattoos and looks like I do - they take me as a totally different person.” Shane says if he wasn’t volunteering at Presbyterian Support, he’s not sure what he would be doing. “But this keeps me busy and helps with my attitude towards life.”

With 30 choir members set to make the trip, Nelson Civic Choir is now working hard to raise a combined total of $150,000. Already they have made just under $10,000 from crowd funding and managed to get Trademe to waive all auction fees so they can keep all the profits of their sales. The group are doing sausage sizzles outside The Warehouse, are organising a silent art auction to be held in December, and a quiz night on Sept 5 at Speights Ale House. They will also be performing another piece by Karl Jenkins, called Stabat Mater, on August

5, at St John’s Church to practice for Carnegie Hall. To add even more excitement to their trip, a few weeks ago the group received an email from Helen Clark who said she would try to attend the New York performance. Anyone who would like to help the Nelson Civic Choir reach Carnegie Hall, whether it’s donating an item to be sold on Trademe, or making a cash donation, can email the group at, or visit their Facebook page, New York Welcomes Nelson. The group also endeavours to bring back a DVD of their performance in New York to share with those interested.

Local students thrive on finishing the 'longest day' Brittany Spencer

Secondary students spent their Saturday running, carrying logs, flipping tyres and sandsprinting across Nelson, as part of the Cactus Longest Day. The 20 school-nominated students pushed themselves to the limit and further, in a brutal day of exercise, drills and teamwork. Cactus is an eight week, military-style course for teenagers that works to improve self-discipline, motivation, teamwork, leadership and physical fitness, and culminates in the Longest Day, a six-hour challenge which determines whether they graduate. One of the challenges was a run up Emano Street with 20L jerry cans and tyres that culminated with what instructor Vicky Carnegie can only describe as an awful spare-line run. “It’s 400m of really steep track and they had to run up there in teams with tyres, lot of them found that really hard.” Vicky says the students really pulled together as a team and every single one of them passed. “I’m absolutely proud of the kids, physical fitness-wise they’ve made huge gains, but it’s not just about that - their teamwork, their ability to lead and work together and just their confidence in their ability has grown.

Mel’s View

“If, at the start of the course, you’d shown them what we were going to do on the longest day, they just wouldn’t have believed they could do that, but they can and they did.” Vicky says the course tends to be for kids who have got leadership potential or kids that need more confidence. “It can be for stronger kids who want to get even stronger or kids who have a bit of developing to do. It’s a real mix, we have everything from head boys and girls to kids who are facing a few more challenges.”

Isel exhibition brings the outside world inside Jessie Johnston Nelson’s historic Isel House is full of interesting information and curios, including a new exhibition titled Outside Inside. As part of Heritage Week, Clare Makwana was asked to set up a display within the house which was Victorian-themed and met the brief of bringing the outside inside. The result is an exhibition focusing on the Victorian’s research and discovery of the natural world, including collections of fossils and shells, and of course, taxidermy creatures. Clare has created the exhibition to look like the living room of real life English gentleman, Rev. Sir George Cox, studying how the Victorians used their discoveries of wild animals, fossils and shells to decorate their homes, sometimes even using the artefacts as pieces of furniture. “Kids will really love it and Clare has made a quiz for kids to do so they can make their own discoveries,” says Debbie. From a lion’s skull and fossilized ice age bear claw, to a taxidermy rabbit, deer and even some fossilized dinosaur dung, the exhibition offers an interesting insight into the curiosity

Mapua Easter Fair, Tuesday, March 29: The Mapua Easter Fair was once again a successful event for the Mapua community. Although organisers are still waiting for the last of the money to come in, they say it’s looking as though the fair managed to raise around $60,000. The fair is organised by The Mapua Easter Fair Charitable Trust which raises money for both Mapua School and the Mapua playcentre. Volunteers for Poppy Day, Tuesday, March 29: Nelson RSA President Barry Pont says they have had an excellent response to their article in the Nelson Weekly calling for Poppy Day volunteers, receiving around 40 calls. Even after they received the numbers they required, more calls kept coming and Barry thanks all those who offered their services. Poppy Day is on this Friday with stalls being set up in Tahunanui, Stoke and Nelson.

Victorians held for the natural world and their presumptuous, prejudiced opinions about it. The exhibition was put together using artifacts from the Nelson Museum’s education collection, taxidermy pieces from Warren Plum and the personal collection of James Brewer from Post Impressions, while the Salvation Army and Richmond Antiques and Curios loaned the furniture and props. People can view Isel House, including the exhibition, for a gold coin donation. Heritage Week will run from April 16 until April 24 and has much more to offer people, with full details available at

Library on the move? To move the library into Trafalgar St is a stupid idea! It would make more sense to move the museum, adjacent to the library. You walk down Hardy St and pass the museum it looks like a shop front with no attraction, and putting the library next to it would just look the same, not to mention the cost of re-location. The council only want to move the library because they have other plans for the library site!

Poison drop at Brook: The lack of consultation by Nelson council over the poison drop in the Brook is consistent with the previous lack of public consultation. The original funding for the Sanctuary was not notified to the public as required under the Local Government Act. At least two Official Information Act requests to council for copies of the Sanctuary Business Plan were denied. This sort of behaviour by government at any level to thwart access to information, and to stop public participation in decisions that have a direct financial or other effect on the public, destroy the legitimacy of government and undermine democratic participation.

Link info" by Stuart Walker on Nelson Traffic, "I sit in traffic and think, why is this happening? There must be a better way". All Stuart had to do was look out of his window and see all the other commuters driving their cars at peak time. He would have noticed that 99 per cent of them had only one person in them and the vast majority were coming from or going to the Tasman District. If we look at other "bigger" cities with worse than 12 to 15 minute delays at peak time, he would see that public transport plays a big part in reducing congestion. It is time to put on our "fact" glasses and see who is pushing for the SL and why, because it sure doesn't have anything to do with traffic congestion or supporting our CBD, when was the last time anyone saw a traffic jam of shoppers trying to get to town? And why is there hardly a problem when school is off? Or lets just follow the money and see who gains the most from a new SH being built. To build a road or not, that is the question? But first let's be honest about why we are doing it and not be conned by modelling or spin. Graeme O'Brien. I sit at the lights by the hospital and wonder why cars are still driving through a red light at less than 5 km per hour, get stuck in the middle of the road and are surprised when they get tooted at by a driver who has the right of way but can't get past.

I'm pleased I read the article and this never happened on the maternity ward. The nurses are lovely on that side! As for other departments, I haven't had much to do with these parts of the hospital but they seem to be ok, too. Sad that it takes one dumb woman to open her mouth, people need to shut up sometimes. Hori Turu. I had my son in Nelson hospital nearly 13years ago and I thought the hospital and the staff were awesome.

So ratepayers be aware! You can look forward to a double whammy!! The cost of relocating the library, which could run into millions, plus the cost of what council plan to build on the site, maybe a convention or cultural centre which would go nice by the river but also cost millions of dollars. I ask one question of council how far do they think they can push ratepayers with continuing high rate increases far above inflation just to pay for there personal agenda. Robert Renshaw.

Local artists jump on for fringe fest fun Kate Russell After last year’s immediate success, Nelson’s Fringe Festival is back for a second round, promising an action-packed week of original theatre and workshops. Twenty-three theatre acts will converge at the Refinery ArtSpace from May 2 – 8, with at least two workshops and three shows each night of the week – all at an accessible price for the public. Festival director Lisa Allan says tickets are already flying out the door, and she is “delighted” by the number of local thespians taking up the fringe challenge and mixing in with the national and international acts. “It is this spirit of developing works and networking between artists which is at the very heart of why Fringe was started last year,” she says. “We had 15 shows last year and have 23 shows in 21 performance spots this year,” she says. “Somehow we worked a bit of magic with the programme to fit them all in. We've also gone from 9 to 13 workshops, which is great.” One of shows featured in this year’s line-up is ‘Bananaruma,’ written by Dawn Marron from Nelson’s brand new theatre company ‘Wag the Dog’. Marron, who was involved with community theatre for many years in the UK, says that the musical comedy, which features a large local cast, can be described as a “hilarious romp through a plethora of 80's anthems.” “The story follows the trials and tribulations of an 80’s tribute band,” she says. “It’s very heart-warming, but very funny with plenty of twists and turns.” “Throughout it we perform plenty of wellknow 80’s songs and we encourage the audience to turn up in 80’s gear, and there will be spot prizes too.” The Nelson Fringe Festival has received sponsorship funding for this year's event from

Creative NZ and the Nelson Events Marketing and Development Programme, which is funded by the Nelson City Council to stimulate Nelson City's economy. Nelson Fringe Festival is on from May 2 – 8 at the Refinery ArtSpace, Halifax St. Tickets for showcase performances are $12 and workshops are priced per hour, either $10, $20 or $30.

Proud supporters of the Mike Pero Nelson Giants

It's easy to start getting excited about the fortunes of the Mike Pero Nelson Giants 2016 season, but coach Tim Fanning insists the team itself is just taking the season one game at a time. The Giants blasted past the Hawkes Bay Hawks at the Trafalgar Centre on Saturday night and local basketball fans have plenty more action to come. This Saturday night the Giants play host to the Waitakere Super City Rangers, before an Anzac weekend double at the Trafalgar Centre, starting with the Southland Sharks on Thursday April 21 and then Canterbury Rams on April 25. Tim says he's happy with the start his team has had but is bracing for the toughest game yet, against the Rangers. "I think it will be the most difficult we've had so far this year. They're going to have Mika [Vukona] back and they've won three in a row. They are a team that, at the start of the year, was a favourite to win the championship, so it's going to

be a huge test for us on Saturday, but we're looking forward to it. We're looking forward to the challenge and we'll be ready for it." He says the feeling amongst the team is good after two straight home wins. "I think we have a really good balance in our roster, in terms of different guys who bring different skills. "The home court advantage for us is huge. We've talked about it, we want to defend our home court and the crowds have been great so far. We feel like we have a huge advantage by playing at home." In the win over the Hawks on Saturday, Tim was able to give some of his younger players plenty of court time and says it's invaluable to be able to do it. "Those guys have been working really, really

hard since January. "A big part of our [good] start was the work that our local players did at the start of the season so it's nice to be able to reward them with game time. "Tom [Ingham]is a guy who was very much in our rotation when JK [Jarrod Kenny] was out so he's right there is terms of a guy who will get regular minutes." While the Giants are focusing on this Saturday's game against the Rangers, fans can look ahead eagerly to the next month of basketball action.



But for those attending the games, it isn't just the basketball that's thrilling. The Wannabes support crew have been in full voice, there is a chance to win $50 cash at each home game by posting a "selfie" to the app, and if the Giants score more than 100 points -- like they did on Saturday night -- then every ticket holder gets a free cheeseburger thanks to sponsors McDonalds Nelson and Tahunanui. For tickets, head to either Calla-Geek Nelson, Jack Robins Stadium in Stoke or Richmond Mall, or you can buy them on the night. If you can't get to the game, keep an eye on for a live blog and results.

Nelson Netball Carol Cook

Jess Brooks in action for Garin College last year.

Next weekend’s Geraldine Hodgson tournament marks the beginning of Nelson Netball Centre’s 2016 season. The majority of clubs had their trials and selected their teams in February so players and coaches will be keen to get their season underway. And the Geraldine Hodgson Tournament, which is named after Nelson Netball’s lifetime supporter and patroness, provides the perfect start to the season. It is encouraging to see the increase in numbers of teams entered, from 35 last year to 54 this year. Senior teams have been split


into five grades, along with a collegiate and junior grade - teams will play three pool games on Saturday before going into cross-overs on Sunday. Six of the eight Premier teams have entered, with only Richmond and Suburban absent. Waimea College A will be keen to test themselves in the elite grade having gained promotion. Prices Pharmacy A look to be contenders as a top qualifier in one section, while Jacks OPD look likely in the second. A new club has been formed by Marist and their Black team will foot it in the A grade which will provide a challenge for them. While all teams would like to get their hands on the first piece of silver for the season, most will take the opportunity to test combinations and gel as a team. While some teams may have

had a couple of practice games, only Prices Pharmacy has competed in Netball Mainland’s Super Club competition played in Ashburton and Blenheim over two weekends in March. There will be a break for the school holidays before the season-proper begins. The Premier grade will begin with a series of shortened games on May 12, with the regular season beginning on May 19. All other grades will have a grading day on May 7 before beginning their competition on May 14. Grading day is a challenge as there are a phenomenal number of games to be played which pushes umpiring resources to the limit. Once the day is completed, the grading of the teams is handed to the competition’s committee. It is a huge undertaking as the committee works through

Weekly reporter con Simon Bloomberg

When Nathan Sturrock emailed me about joining their Greenhorns team as a very late replacement for the Godzone Adventure Race, I had some serious reservations. For starters, the race was only two weeks away and I hadn't done any training. Other teams had been trekking, kayaking, rafting and mountainbiking thousands of kilometres over the last six months to prepare for the epic race through the Tasman district's backcountry, so how could I expect to survive the 490km journey? I hadn't even sat in a kayak for over two years. And even if I did last the distance, wouldn't I be way too slow for my three young teammates, Nathan and Lachlan Brownlee, both 19, and Rachel Baker, 21. I had visions of Nathan carrying my pack as Lachlan pushed me up a hill with Rachel walking behind muttering something about 'a pathetic old man'. I was also concerned about the team dynamics, which is

At 58, I was almost older than all three of them put together so what the heck would we talk about during the long treks through the night - certainly not Justin Bieber. I hate Justin Bieber. But Nathan was desperate. Their fourth team-mate had been injured and I'm sure they'd phoned just about everyone who owned a mountainbike to try and get a replacement before they finally got to me. I was their last hope. It was

either me or they'd have to pull out, so after getting the all clear from my family, work and cat, who I knew would miss me the most, I said yes. And surprisingly, over the four days, two hours and 27 minutes it took us to complete the race, I only regretted that decision once. It was on the first night when it was so cold I only managed half an hour sleep on the tops after climbing Ben Nevis. It was freezing, and I shivered uncontrollably for three

Wanderers extend club rugby winning streak Wanderers continued its unbeaten run in the Tasman Trophy and first round of the Car Company Nelson Bays division one

championship in Stoke on Saturday. Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers downed Stoke 47-18 at Greenmeadows, while

Waimea Old Boys notched its first win of the season with a 29-22 win over Kahurangi in Motueka.

quers Godzone race hours as I listened to Nathan and Lachlan snoring next to me. I couldn't wait to get up at 6am and resume our 52km trek through the Red Hills to St Arnaud. But the rest of the race was amazing. We'd had a cool kayak from Kaiteriteri to Rabbit Island and a fun mountainbike along the Great Taste Trail and through the familiar tracks in Silvan Forest into the Aniseed Valley and onto the Wairoa Gorge. The ride through the Porika Track to Lake Rotoroa and raft down the Matakitaki River were also race highlights - a perfect blend of great scenery and exhilarating high speed downhills and white water rapids. Yeehah! The rafting stage was also a highlight for another reason. After having the worst sleep of my life on the first night of the

race, I had my best sleep ever on the third night when I had nine blissful hours snoring my head off in a raft on the banks of the Matakitaki. After that, we charged to the finish, only stopping at transitions for food supplied by our dedicated support crew as we biked up the Owen Valley, trekked over the Owen Range and got back on our bikes for the 140km stage from Tui to Totaranui via the Takaka Hill and Rameka Track. The only speed bumps on these stages were a bull that had escaped from its paddock that sent us scurrying to safety up a bank and a desperate, skidding stop for a Powelliphanta snail with a death wish sitting right in the middle of the track as we mountainbiked through the Rameka at 5am.

And then, finally, we kayaked across a glassy Golden Bay to the finish line at Kaiteriteri and after racing non-stop for 31 hours, gratefully received a pie and cold beer from race organisers. And yes, they were the best pie and beer I'd ever had. For the record, the Godzone Pure race was won by Team Yealands Family Wines featuring Nelson's Dan Busch in three days 12 hours 44 minutes with Team Swordfox, featuring Ash and Naomi Whitehead and Brent Edwards, second in three days 16 hours 55 minutes. Team Silky's Vicky Shelling, John Harris, Stephen Busby and Callum Irvine were the fastest mixed team in the slightly shorter Godzone Pursuit finishing in three days 22 hours eight minutes. Greenhorns were fourth.

Members of the Nelson Dawnbreakers enjoy a barbecue after a day of fishing from Okiwi Bay this month.

Nelson Preparatory School’s Austin Knowles pitches during their softball match against Waimea Intermediate at the Saxton softball diamonds on Friday. Their game was part of the intermediate school’s summer tournament which included all the local intermediates. The tournament featured around 13 sports such as softball, dodge ball, Ki O Rahi, tennis, touch, lawn bowls, mountain biking and volleyball, and is all about encouraging students to enjoy friendly competition and get involved in new sports.

We have just returned from an awesome weekend away in Okiwi Bay, where the weather was calm, the fish were biting, and club members socialised and dined on fresh crayfish. It was a great opportunity for new club members to mingle with others to learn a few fishing techniques and be shown some spots. We have a range of fishing members, which allows the experienced people to share their knowledge (and crayfish) with the newbies, and the regular fisherman who don’t often habitat this glorious fisherman's playground, to experience some of Nelson’s best fishing. You simply cannot fish at Okiwi Bay without catching at least a blue cod. However, the new size regulations of 33cm meant a few of us had to throw a lot of 31 and 32 cm cod

back, which is important for keeping the fishing stocks at premium levels. Club measuring boards were given a thrashing to ensure we kept to the new rules and only took the fish that were over 33cm in length. Snapper are still on the bite around Cape Soucis, and most members caught at least one of these popular species, Kahawai, gurnard, tarakihi and, of course, blue cod were all on most peoples catch list. Prizes were given out to all the children who took part, and thanks to sponsorship from Big Blue Dive and Fish, they had a nice goodie bag to sift through. We have another club weekend trip planned for end of May to Durville Island, weather dependent of course, so fingers crossed we will have another successful weekend's fishing.
