BMG Grizzlies - a wild bunch of committed players

Written by Media Manager.

Bowater Honda was approached by a group of Nelson College students for sponsorship of their team during the evening Tahuna Touch Competition. Always keen to support our younger generation being more active in local sport, it was easy to get the support sponsorship in place.

2012-team

The team is made up of 12 likely local lads: from left back row - 1. Ozzie Mitchell - 9. Cayden Edwards - 4. Phillippe Swart - 7. Zac Columbus - 8. Cormac Enright - 12. Jake Moore -10. Jackson Pugh - 11. Ryan Amlehn - FRONT ROW (from left) - 6. Ash Lindup - 2. Luke Smith - 3.Christian Jessop.

The boys created a team made up of a fringe group of senior first and second XV players from several local schools, calling themselves the Grizzlies. This may seem like a weird name, but according to one father of a player, this is apparently not after the popular survivalist Bear Grylls, but the hairy quadrupeds from North America to which they share a remarkable likeness and similar scent. We think that this may be stretching the truth just a little but will run with it as an explanation for now!

Have you had your cupcake today?

Written by Media Manager.

Today is the annual SPCA Cupcake Day. A day when all branches of the SPCA collectively make and sell cupcakes across the country.

SPCA cupcake day

The SPCA is entirely self funded, so days like this one are very important.
If you have missed the opportunity to buy a cupcake on the street, or at one of the stalls in the supermarkets because they sold out due to their extreme deliciousness, you can still donate to them by clicking here. You may not get a cupcake but you will most certainly get a warm feeling for helping out a charity that does great work in the community.
