Nelson S.I. Champs Update


This is just a reminder that the final 2 rounds of the 2008 SI Champs will be held in the Nelson Area on the 6th and 7th of September. 


The event will be held at Punawai Farm in Eighty Eight Valley. Punawai is approximately 7 km from the township of Wakefield on SH6. The same venue will be used for both days.  Directions and a map are included at the back of the attached Entry Form. Punawai is a massive property that we are very fortunate to have access to. This is the same property where Day 1 of the 2006 NZ Champs were held. A couple of the sections will be held over “semi natural” terrain and the rest set up the creeks, in the trees and on the hillsides. 


It would be appreciated if you could return you entries sooner rather than later. As in Rounds 3 & 4, the Presidents lines will follow the Blue markers plus one Green marker in each section. Please ensure your name plates are clearly marked with Green tape.  In an attempt to boost numbers, We will also be setting out and running a Social Class…. without compromising the technicality of the sections.

It is suggested that those of you coming from out of town book yourselves into the Brightwater Motor Inn (03  542 3607). This is marked up on the attached map. This will be very convenient for the event. They have ample offstreet parking, a large “sports bar” and a reasonably priced restaurant. We intend all meeting here on the Saturday evening… drink driving issues! As of today, the Brightwater Motor Inn has 15 units available for that weekend.

Rates are as follows:– 

14 ea Studio units, $90/night, queen + single,  or 2 x single, options available.– 

1 ea Family unit, $120/night for 2 adults, up to 4 additional adults at an extra $15/night each.  

Other suggestion are:

Parkside Motel, Richmond, 03 5446564,   $110/night/2 bed unit

Destiny Motels, Richmond, 03 543 9954           $ ?? 


As this is the last round of the SI Champs, would the 2007 holders of the permanent trophies please make sure they bring them along to the event, or send them with someone….should you be dying and unable to attend!  

See you all on the 6th
