SELWYN TIMES Tuesday June 7 2016 7 News Duck calling success GEORGE BUTTERICK, originally from Kaituna Valley took out the Canterbury round of a duck calling competition. Mr Butterick now works at in the Rangitata as a shepherd on Willesden Farm, but the distance did not stop him from making the trip to the Springston Hotel to compete in the Canterbury section of the New Zealand Duck Calling Championships. After a long day of shooting out on Lake Ellesmere, 11 of Canterbury’s best duck callers entertained 100 spectators as they competed in the duck calling. The round was the fifth in a series of six competitions around the country held since April. During the Kiwi competition, competitors have just one minute of calling to impress the judges with their impression of realistic live duck call. The national winner will travel to America to compete in the World Duck-Calling Championship, which is held during the Maryland Water Fowl Festival in November. Event organiser Adam Rayner said it takes a certain amount of skill to making a realistic duck call. WINNER: George Butterick won the competition and will now head to the nationals next month. Photos: Richard Cosgrove, Fish & Game New Zealand “Duck-calling is like playing any wind instrument, some people are okay at it and others become masters at it.” Mr Butterick will go on to compete at the national competition held in Tauranga on July 9. COMPETITION STARTER: John Hunter opened the competition at the Springston Hotel. Snap Send Solve app launched THE DISTRICT council has taken a leaf out of the city’s book by introducing the smart phone application, Snap Send Solve. The city council was the first council in Canterbury to introduce it last year. It lets people report a problem in the area with infrastructure, such as pot holes, pavements in disrepair and send it to the council. The app uses the GPS location of the user’s phone to locate where the problem was reported and generates a service request to the district council. It hoped the application will work in well in secluded areas. “Snap Send Solve is particularly useful in rural areas as it’s often difficult for people to provide a precise location when reporting an issue,” said district council business relationship manager Stephen Hill. The system reports the problem as soon as the user has uploaded it, and contractors are given the exact location when they go to fix the problem. The cost of implementing the system was $1251. The annual subscription for the council to run the service will cost $3465 after this year. “The app can also identify whether an issue should be directed to Environment Canterbury or another local council, based on the location and type of report that is lodged.” Mr Hill says that people also need to include a short description of the problem when they submit a photo so that the district council has enough information to respond to the report. Since the application was introduced in April 55 issues have been reported to the district council using Snap Send Solve. The district council’s online form at www.selwyn.govt.nz/ helpline can still be used to report an issue with or without submitting a photo.
