The event is on Tasman Golf's order of merit and therefore attracts some of the region's best players vying for representative selection. It is also open to keen club golfers who make up the bulk of the field. It is the golf club's main fundraising event for the year. Entry is $30 which includes a meal.

Special Olympics More than 300 athletes from as far afield as Ashburton and Manawatu will be taking part in eight different sports at an event hosted by Special Olympics Nelson this weekend. Special Olympics Nelson co-ordinator Lois Aikenhead said the regional games would give special Olympians the chance to qualify for upcoming national and international events. ''One of the highlights will be the opening ceremony which will be held at 9am on Saturday at the Saxton Athletics complex,'' she said. ''It will involve a grand parade lead by a marching team with music from pipers and drummers. The Special Olympics flame will be lit and the flags unfurled while the national anthem is sung.'' The sports to be played during the event will be swimming, basketball, bocce, 10-pin bowling, indoor bowls, powerlifting, golf and athletics.

Boom time for sailing courses: Nelson Yacht Club sailing manager Tim Fraser-Harris talks to an after- school class. Photo: PHIL BARNES Sailing club on drive to boost training boats By PHIL BARNES The Nelson Yacht Club has enjoyed a bumper season, putting a record number of children through learn-to-sail cour- ses. However, it is keen to expand further and hopes to buy between $70,000 and $100,000 worth of new boats through a sponsorship initiative. Sailing manager Tim Fraser-Harris said more than 100 children had been on the club s learn-to-sail programmes, close to double the number taking part in the previous two years. Tim, who is also the club s chief watersports instructor, said more than 100 children and adults had done 90-minute windsurfing tas- ter courses this summer. From that, many had gone on to do an eight-hour wind- surfing course and some then progressed to hire or buy equipment. And membership has doubled to well over 200 and is still growing, he said. The club was keen to pro- vide more courses to satisfy the demand but was having to turn people away because it didn t have enough boats. Consequently, the club was starting a fundraising plan so it could buy more boats and create a pathway for youth and adult sailing in Nelson . We will be seeking cor- porate sponsorship but we plan to offer the sponsors plenty in return such as free use of our Aurora Lounge for functions and allowing them to have corporate branding on our sails. The idea is that the benefits add up to more than they would need to con- tribute to us for us to buy a boat. Tim said the club needed to replace some of its ageing Optimist fleet. But we will fundraise for the Optimists through trusts and youth charities because Optimists are very use speci- fic. He said the club had invested in three Topaz Uno boats but needed a further three. He said they were use- ful as a utility boat and were ideal for teenagers but could also be used for adult learn- to-sail classes. Also, we would like to get two adult training boats such as a Topaz Omega or Xenon. These are bigger boats which you can put an instructor and two or three adults in.
