It takes an enormous amount of community volunteers. ' Nigel Muir Chief executive An outpouring of effort from real heroes has kept the winter sport season running after flash flood- ing in April closed Saxton Stadium, Sport Tasman s chief executive says. The stadium is preparing to re-open in time for the South Island Masters Games, with the sporting organisation moving back into its offices, which were heavily damaged by the floods, this week. The 35 staff, including some from individual sporting codes, had been operating in temporary offices in the netball pavilion. That space will now be set up as a registration area for the games, which run from October 5 till 13. About 2500 people from the South Island are expected to descend on the stadium, enrol- ling in 50 different activities. They will be catered to by about 300 volunteers, with the stadium acting as Games Vil- lage. The $12 million stadium was closed indefinitely after flash flooding in April submerged the $500,000 floating hardwood floor in contaminated water, bowing the wood and making the surface unusable. The flooding also damaged offices used by Sport Tasman, with the ceiling collapsing in one area. Chief executive Nigel Muir said there had been a massive outpouring of effort from the community s volunteers since the flood. Everything from squeegeeing mud and gunk out of the hockey turf for some 1200 hours, to mov- ing basketball to six venues and co-ordinating referees and scorers. It takes an enormous amount of community volun- teers. People won t see that, but there s been some real heroes out there continuing to make sport happen at the busiest time of the year for us. Some staff and athletes had experienced the impact of the floods in their own homes, so being able to provide some nor- mality through sport was important, he said. This will be the second time Nelson has hosted the Masters Games. Two years ago 2900 athletes competed, making it one of the biggest sporting events in the country. The games cost $310,000 to run and broke even. A report showed that the Nel- son economy benefited, with an estimated income from the games of $1.4 million.
