Politicking claim as<br />

mayoral battle heats up<br />

Andrew Turner<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

PHIL MAUGER’S quad bike<br />

expedition to an isolated flood and<br />

mudslide-ravaged community on<br />

Banks Peninsula has been described<br />

as politicking by his potential rival<br />

for the city’s mayoralty.<br />

The first election battleground<br />

of the campaign to replace Lianne<br />

Dalziel in October likely unfolded<br />

in the farming enclave of Goughs<br />

Bay, which has been virtually cut<br />

off since torrential rain and slips<br />

wreaked havoc on December 15.<br />

Mauger, who declared his mayoral<br />

aspirations last August, made the<br />

first inroads last Wednesday hours<br />

after being contacted by one of<br />

three families who rely on Goughs<br />

Bay Rd as a link to the outside<br />

world.<br />

The road has been impassable<br />

since the deluge with one 1.3km<br />

stretch damaged by 34 slips.<br />

The Burwood Ward councillor<br />

visited John and Carol Masefield’s<br />

property while incumbent Deputy<br />

Mayor Andrew Turner, the<br />

councillor representing Banks<br />

Peninsula, spent Monday in the<br />

area.<br />

Although touted as a candidate<br />

for the top job Turner, the leader<br />

of the left leaning People’s Choice<br />

caucus, is yet to reveal his plans.<br />

Turner was not surprised Mauger<br />

had ventured into his jurisdiction.<br />

“Is it politics? Yes, it is. We are<br />

in an election year. It’s exactly the<br />

behaviour we would expect to see<br />

from someone who has declared his<br />

intention to run for the mayoralty,”<br />

he said.<br />

from the editor’s desk<br />

PHIL MAUGER has taken<br />

the early high ground in what<br />

may be a two-way contest<br />

with Andrew Turner for the<br />

mayoralty later this year.<br />

Mauger went to flooddevastated<br />

Goughs Bay last<br />

week to talk to residents and<br />

see what he could do to help.<br />

Turner followed, on Monday,<br />

to also listen to residents.<br />

Resident Carol Masefield<br />

expressed her frustration over<br />

the lack of city council action:<br />

“We were very pleased to<br />

have a visit from a councillor<br />

that genuinely listened to our<br />

frustrations and was keen to<br />

see the destruction first-hand,”<br />

she said of Mauger.<br />

news<br />

But she tempered that by<br />

saying she was criticising the<br />

city council in general, not<br />

Turner specifically.<br />

But it looks like Mauger has<br />

scored early points.<br />

Book dedicated to history icon<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

SHIRLEY MCEWAN found she<br />

was having conversations with<br />

young Lyttelton residents who<br />

knew little about life at the port<br />

prior to the road tunnel.<br />

So she wrote a book – Rail<br />

before Road – to inform people<br />

what Lyttelton was like as she<br />

knew it.<br />

McEwan, who writes under<br />

her maiden name Buchanan,<br />

refers to a time before the<br />

construction of the road tunnel,<br />

which opened in 1964. Back then<br />

the only means of travel to the<br />

city had been by train through<br />

the railway tunnel.<br />

“I found talking to people who<br />

now live in Lyttelton that is since<br />

the road tunnel went through,<br />

they have no idea that we only<br />

ever had trains,” said McEwan.<br />

The book tells stories of a<br />

generation that lived vastly<br />

different to how Lyttelton<br />

residents do now.<br />

“It’s about the freedom that we<br />

had as children, the lifestyle that<br />

we lived and our dependence on<br />

rail travel.<br />

“Life has changed completely,<br />

but I still think that young<br />

people need to know how it used<br />

to be,” said McEwan.<br />

The book was inspired by<br />

and dedicated to the late Baden<br />

Norris.<br />

Norris was the curator of<br />

Lyttelton Museum, a local<br />

historian, polar adventurer and<br />

recipient of the Antarctic Medal<br />

“Over the years he was so,<br />

so helpful. I always knew if I<br />

needed anything historical I<br />

could go and ask Baden.<br />

“Lyttelton wouldn’t have had a<br />

museum of any sort if it hadn’t of<br />

been for his driving force.”<br />

All proceeds from the sales<br />

of the book will go towards the<br />

rebuild for Lyttelton Museum.<br />

“It just seemed to be a good<br />

way to help them to raise funds,”<br />

said McEwan.<br />

McEwan now resides at the<br />

Rhodes on Cashmere retirement<br />

village.<br />

Said the 82-year-old: “You can<br />

take the girl out of Lyttelton but<br />

you can’t take Lyttelton out of<br />

the girl.”<br />

“Anybody who has ever lived<br />

in Lyttelton knows that Lyttelton<br />

remains part of your heart. It<br />

was always a place with soul<br />

where everybody looked after<br />

everybody else, it was just a big<br />

family.”<br />

McEwan and the museum<br />

are asking for help from anyone<br />

who lived in Lyttelton pre-road<br />

“They attempted to put on<br />

about,” said McEwan.<br />

She asks anyone prepared to<br />

Possum chase didn’t go well for<br />

INSTINCT: Volunteer firefighter Mike Smith abseiled down<br />

and cut his way through the dense bush to rescue a very<br />

happy Harvey.<br />

The Maid<br />

by Nita Prose<br />

Ferrymead<br />

I am your maid.<br />

I know about your secrets. Your dirty laundry.<br />

But what do you know about me?<br />

Molly the maid is all alone in the world. A nobody. She’s used<br />

to being invisible in her job at the Regency Grand Hotel, plumping<br />

pillows and wiping away the grime, dust and secrets of the guests<br />

passing through. She’s just a maid – why should anyone take notice?<br />

But Molly is thrown into the spotlight when she discovers an infamous guest, Mr<br />

Black, very dead in his bed. This isn’t a mess that can be easily cleaned up. And<br />

as Molly becomes embroiled in the hunt for the truth, following the clues whispering<br />

in the hallways of the Regency Grand, she discovers a power she never knew was<br />

there. She’s just a maid – but what can she see that others overlook?<br />

Escapist, charming and introducing a truly original heroine, The Maid is a story<br />

about how everyone deserves to be seen. And how the truth isn’t always black and<br />

white – it’s found in the dirtier, grey areas in between . . .<br />

The Collector’s Daughter<br />

by Gill Paul<br />

From the internationally bestselling author comes a tale of long-buried secrets and a<br />

discovery that will change everything, perfect for fans of Dinah Jefferies and Lucinda<br />

Riley.<br />

An unforgettable discovery<br />

In 1922, Lady Evelyn Herbert’s dreams are realised when she is the first to set foot<br />

inside the lost tomb of Tutankhamun for over 3,000 years.<br />

A cursed life<br />

But the months after the discovery are marred by tragedy, when Eve’s father dies<br />

suddenly and her family is torn in two. Desperate to put the past behind her, Eve retreats<br />

into a private life with her new husband.<br />

A deadly choice<br />

But she is harbouring a dark secret about what really happened in Egypt. And when a<br />

young woman comes asking questions years later, the happiness Eve has finally found<br />

is threatened once more…<br />

IT WAS FAR too much for<br />

Harvey the jack russell and his<br />

mate Sam, the labrador cross, to<br />

resist – the sound of something<br />

rattling in a bush.<br />

So they did what jack russells<br />

and labradors do – pursue it.<br />

But the problem was the rattling<br />

sound – a possum – was down a<br />

cliff.<br />

But for Harvey it nearly all<br />

turned to custard when he<br />

charged down the cliff which<br />

was covered in thick, wild berry<br />

bushes.<br />

He had been out walking with<br />

his owner Catherine Venrooy<br />

who was with her friend and<br />

Sam on the Māori Gardens track<br />

at Governors Bay after work on<br />

January 25, when the drama<br />

unfolded.<br />

Venrooy managed to get a<br />

hold of Sam by the tail as the<br />

dogs charged for their quarry<br />

but little Harvey was too quick.<br />

It was too steep and the bush<br />

too dense for Venrooy to get to<br />

Harvey.<br />

“We couldn’t get down, we<br />

couldn’t see him but we could<br />

hear him and the possum,” she<br />

said.<br />

“We tried calling him for ages<br />

but it was no use, we didn’t know<br />

RELIEF: Catherine Venrooy with Harvey after the rescue.<br />

if he was stuck or just wasn’t With safety gear on and secateurs<br />

in hand, Smith abseiled<br />

coming out.”<br />

Venrooy phoned a friend and about 3m down the cliff side to<br />

told him they were in a “pickle” find the seven-and-a-half year<br />

and to please come with rope and old Harvey with the possum’s tail<br />

secateurs.<br />

in his mouth.<br />

Said Venrooy: “The fireman<br />

While her friend was on the<br />

flung the possum out and up to<br />

way, she decided to call the Fire<br />

“A local team for local people”


Harvey<br />

“Thank God for farmers,<br />

Mike, he’s a farmer, the first<br />

thing he caught was the possum<br />

and threw it back up. I think<br />

most of us city dwellers would<br />

crap ourselves to be quite honest<br />

and wouldn’t go near it,” said<br />

Norris.<br />

With Harvey in hand, Smith<br />

was lifted back up by the team.<br />

Harvey was very thirsty but<br />

uninjured and keen to continue<br />

his possum hunt.<br />

“We got Harvey’s lead onto<br />

him but then he was real keen<br />

to get back in there so we had to<br />

hold him back pretty hard,” said<br />

Venrooy.<br />

After a shower and a big feed of<br />

biscuits Harvey collapsed on his<br />

bed for the night.<br />

Venrooy was very thankful for<br />

the team at the Governors Bay<br />

brigade.<br />

“Everyone was so helpful, it<br />

was good teamwork, my friends<br />

were great too.”<br />

Governors Bay is the only<br />

brigade in the Lyttelton Harbour<br />

basin that is trained for lines<br />

rescue and Norris said it went<br />

very well.<br />

Successful rocket<br />

launch but data lost<br />

THE ROCKET launch that had<br />

some Birdlings Flat residents<br />

concerned went ahead last Friday<br />

with no issues.<br />

Some residents were unaware<br />

that the rocket was launched<br />

at 11.45am from Kaitorete Spit<br />

beach.<br />

Safety measures were put<br />

in place by the UC Aerospace<br />

team and the rocket launched<br />

safely but due to missing data,<br />

the team cannot confirm whether<br />

they hit their record setting<br />

target.<br />

The aim was to exceed the<br />

current altitude record for a student-led<br />

rocket programme held<br />

by the University of Southern<br />

California, which reached an<br />

altitude of 104km.<br />

“It launched perfectly, out<br />

in the direction that it was<br />

meant to go, unfortunately we<br />

just lost that data so we can’t<br />

Davies.<br />

Davies said the launch looked<br />

good from the ground but they<br />

lost the telemetry link that was<br />

sending all the information from<br />

the rocket back to them.<br />

“We lost that link just after the<br />

first stage burn so we weren’t able<br />

to get all of the data we needed to<br />

LIFT-OFF: The UC Aerospace team’s record-attempting<br />

rocket launching from Birdlings Flat on Friday.<br />

figure out how high it went.”<br />

The team is currently taking<br />

all the data they do have from<br />

the ground to try and get a full<br />

picture of the performance and<br />

how high the rocket went. They<br />

hope to have another go within<br />

the year.<br />

“Everyone is pretty happy, they<br />

all thought it was quite cool.<br />

Everyone is really keen to do<br />

another one,” Davies said.<br />

Lack of council<br />

communication with<br />

residents a concern<br />

• From page 1<br />

“His approach was<br />

different to mine. He<br />

responded to an invitation<br />

from residents, I went<br />

out there with council<br />

staff and representatives<br />

of (contractors) Fulton<br />

Hogan.<br />

“We were planning that<br />

well before Phil went out<br />

there. I had a long and<br />

detailed meeting with staff<br />

(on January 24). We started<br />

planning on the day.’’<br />

Asked if he was thought<br />

Turner had followed his<br />

lead Mauger said: “It does<br />

seem a bit coincidental”<br />

before denying he was<br />

politicking.<br />

“I didn’t go out of my<br />

way to dig holes in his vote<br />

but I thought: ‘This is what<br />

excites me about doing<br />

council work. You can go<br />

out and meet people and<br />

see how you can make<br />

them happy or fix things.<br />

“I’ve been told a number<br />

of times to get my head out<br />

of operational and start<br />

doing governance but I<br />

just love the operational<br />

bits because I can see how<br />

things can maybe be done<br />

better.”<br />

Mauger updated city<br />

council staff on his return<br />

and acknowledged the city<br />

council’s lack of communication<br />

with residents was a<br />

concern.<br />

“They haven’t been told<br />

any plans of what’s going<br />

on. If they were kept in<br />

the loop a bit more . . .<br />

someone from council<br />

went over the day after (the<br />

storm) and that was good<br />

but they haven’t heard a<br />

thing since.”<br />

Masefield, who must<br />

take a quad bike over a<br />

narrow stock track on<br />

NEWS 7<br />

SLIPPAGE: A Goughs Bay Rd resident surveys<br />

the damage to the community’s link to the<br />

remainder of Banks Peninsula and beyond.<br />

a neighbouring farm to<br />

reach the bay, where a<br />

vehicle is parked for shopping<br />

excursions to Akaroa,<br />

has long been critical of<br />

the city council’s response.<br />

“When this happened<br />

everyone went on holiday,<br />

the council shut down. The<br />

communication has been<br />

shocking,” she said.<br />

But Masefield was<br />

impressed Mauger made<br />

the trip hours she after<br />

sent her request via social<br />

media.<br />

“We were very pleased to<br />

have a visit from a councillor<br />

that genuinely listened<br />

to our frustrations and was<br />

keen to see the destruction<br />

first-hand,” she said, confirming<br />

she was criticising<br />

the council in general, not<br />

Turner specifically.<br />

However, after Turner’s<br />

first visit since the natural<br />

disaster, Masefield was still<br />

frustrated.<br />

“He says all the right<br />

things, as they do, but we<br />

still haven’t got any time<br />

line of what’s happening to<br />

the road,” she said.<br />

Mauger, who owns a<br />

contracting company,<br />

cheekily suggested he was<br />

“half an inch away from<br />

taking a digger over there<br />

and doing it myself but I<br />

know I’d get in deep s**t.”<br />

In July 2<strong>02</strong>0 he dug a<br />

70m ditch on red zone<br />

land to resolve long-term<br />

flooding on Pages Rd in<br />

the city’s eastern suburbs;<br />

the council then spent<br />

about $30,000 to fill in the<br />

unauthorised trench.<br />

Mauger cited that<br />

exercise when dismissing<br />

suggestions he indulged in<br />

a points-scoring exercise<br />

ahead of the October 8<br />

polls.<br />

“Roadworks, earthworks<br />

… all that sort of thing<br />

interests me. I’ve also got<br />

a place over in Akaroa, a<br />

little crib/bach. It’s always<br />

interested me over there,”<br />

he said, adding he will<br />

reschedule an informal<br />

gathering in Akaroa<br />

cancelled due to Covid-19<br />

restrictions.<br />

Funding for<br />

estuary<br />

pest control<br />

THE AVON-Heathcote Estuary<br />

Ihutai Trust has received<br />

$345,000 in funding to help with<br />

predator control.<br />

The trust applied for the<br />

Jobs for Nature funding made<br />

available by the Department of<br />

Conservation early last year and<br />

were successful.<br />

The $345,000 will be spread<br />

out over three years for the<br />

Trust’s pest eradication project.<br />

A contract has been made with<br />

EXCELL company who have<br />

conducted predator control for<br />

25 years for the council, Environment<br />

Canterbury and DoC.<br />

With the funding, two new<br />

jobs have been created and under<br />

supervision from the council,<br />

the Trust and EXCELL they<br />

commenced with trapping in<br />

December.<br />

Part of the agreement was that<br />

no poison is to be used and traps<br />

have been especially designed<br />

and built to ensure that cats and<br />

dogs can not enter the traps.<br />

South Shore Spit Reserve<br />

being is one the areas where<br />

traps have now been placed as<br />

Eliminating predators a family affair<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

MATT BUTTERFIELD and<br />

his daughter Lucy are doing<br />

their part to help make Banks<br />

Peninsula predator free.<br />

The pair have been volunteering<br />

for Pohatu Penguins and<br />

Predator Free Banks Peninsula<br />

in Akaroa, helping with an<br />

ongoing survey and setting and<br />

checking predator traps.<br />

Pohatu Penguins led a peninsula-wide<br />

penguin survey last<br />

summer, on that survey they<br />

found signs of predation in and<br />

around some areas of penguin<br />

nesting sites.<br />

“After the survey, we knew we<br />

had the ability to help and we’re<br />

doing it,” said Butterfield.<br />

“Lucy is the driving force behind<br />

it. It’s her gig, I just provide<br />

the boat and the labour.”<br />

Twelve-year-old Lucy’s passion<br />

for helping New Zealand’s native<br />

biodiversity stemmed from<br />

reading about the kākāpō on<br />

Stewart Island. While she has<br />

been able to sponsor a couple<br />

of kākāpō, Lucy went in search<br />

of something local her and her<br />

family could help out with.<br />

The Butterfields have a holiday<br />

home in Akaroa and have been<br />

going there for eight years.<br />

“Birdlife is one of the amazing<br />

things over there,” said Butterfield.<br />

“We just feel that if we don’t<br />

do something then there won’t<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

be penguins in the harbour<br />

anymore.”<br />

Lucy got in contact with Pohatu<br />

Penguins co-owner Averil<br />

Parthonnaud and her husband<br />

Kevin and she has been helping<br />

them out where she can.<br />

“They’re the real heroes,” said<br />

Butterfield.<br />

In October 2<strong>02</strong>0, a group of<br />

community leaders and over<br />

60 volunteers surveyed Banks<br />

Peninsula to identify penguin<br />

numbers, 20 years after the first<br />

significant peninsula-wide survey<br />

was performed.<br />

The Horomaka Kororā Survey<br />

was started in 2<strong>02</strong>0 with the<br />

purpose being to estimate the<br />

current population size of little<br />

penguins on Banks Peninsula.<br />

Butterfield and Lucy helped<br />

out when the survey resumed at<br />

the end of last year.<br />

“We found two quite large<br />

CARING: Matt<br />

Butterfield<br />

and his<br />

daughter Lucy<br />

use a spare<br />

fishing float<br />

and kick their<br />

way in to the<br />

hard-to-reach<br />

sea coves to<br />

set traps for<br />

predators to<br />

protect little<br />

blue penguins.<br />

nesting sites inside the Akaroa<br />

Harbour that were just getting<br />

decimated by stoats,” said Butterfield.<br />

Since then, he and Lucy have<br />

set about 16 traps in the two big<br />

nesting spots.<br />

“Matt was installing BT200<br />

traps in and around the sea coves<br />

within the Akaroa Harbour. The<br />

BT200 trap is a humane kill-trap<br />

designed for stoats,” said PFBP<br />

operations manager Tim Sjoberg.<br />

With his teenage sons Tom<br />

and Charlie helping out, Butterfield<br />

uses his boat to get to the<br />

more difficult-to-reach sea coves<br />

then he and Lucy swim in.<br />

“We’ve got a spare fishing float,<br />

we hang on the back of that and<br />

kick ourselves in, one of my sons<br />

will sit on the boat while we<br />

swim 20m to the shore,” Butterfield<br />

said.<br />

An estimated 68,000 native<br />

birds are killed in New Zealand<br />

by introduced pests every night,<br />

and 25 million killed every year,<br />

PFBP website states.<br />

“It is the collective mahi, like<br />

Matt’s [and Lucy’s], that will<br />

really make a difference for our<br />

taonga species,” PFBP communications<br />

manager Vanessa<br />

Mander said.<br />

“We are buoyed by the effort,<br />

passion and commitment shown<br />

by our community,” she said.<br />

Anyone can help out, whether<br />

that’s with backyard trapping,<br />

volunteering with local trapping<br />

group or starting a trap line.<br />

•If you’re a landowner<br />

Free Banks Peninsula<br />

Treasures from the past:<br />

The King’s Scouts<br />

MAJOR DAVID Cossgrove of<br />

Kaiapoi bravely volunteered for<br />

the Second Boer War and served<br />

His Majesty with distinction in<br />

the 6th and 10th Contingents<br />

of the New Zealand Mounted<br />

Rifles from 1900-19<strong>02</strong>.<br />

Under the British command<br />

of the First Baron Baden-<br />

Powell, Major General Robert<br />

Stephenson Smyth Baden-<br />

Powell, Major Cossgrove was<br />

influenced by his commander’s<br />

ideas regarding the training of<br />

good, healthy British boys in the<br />

discipline of scouting and other<br />

skills that may be of service to<br />

King and Empire.<br />

THus it was on Cossgrove’s<br />

return that the first Dominion<br />

Boy Scouts Troop was<br />

established at Kaiapoi in April,<br />

1908.<br />

The Dominion Boy Scouts<br />

movement spread quickly across<br />

the country with troops forming<br />

in many towns including Lyttelton.<br />

By 1913 the now Lieutenant-Colonel<br />

Cossgrove’s Dominion<br />

Scouts were affiliated with<br />

Baden-Powell’s international<br />

Boy Scouts Association of the<br />

United Kingdom.<br />

It is at this juncture that<br />

you’ll find erstwhile Lyttelton<br />

Boy Scouts Troop assembled at<br />

the old Drill Hall in 1913 and<br />

proudly displaying their accomplishments.<br />

Centre stage is what appears<br />

to be the Sargood-Otter Shield<br />

awarded, fittingly for a port<br />

town, to the Troop with the<br />

highest number of boys taught<br />

to swim.<br />

Also, at their stage left, they<br />

hold aloft the highly prestigious<br />

King’s Standard. Awarded that<br />

year by George V, King of the<br />

United Kingdom and the British<br />

Dominions, and Emperor of<br />

India, the standard was given<br />

to the troop with the highest<br />

percentage of King’s Scouts,<br />

those Boy Scouts judged most<br />

proficient in scouting skills.<br />

Skills that would no doubt<br />

serve the older boys well in the<br />

war against Imperial Germany<br />

that would break out the<br />

following fateful year. About 75 young scouts assembled at the old drill hall in 1913.<br />

Hickory clubs set to test the best golfers<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

THE CHANCE discovery of a<br />

warped wooden-shafted club<br />

at an Akaroa antique fair more<br />

than a decade ago has driven<br />

an authentic golfing experience<br />

that goes even further back in<br />

time.<br />

Stu Upton paid $25 for the<br />

manky old putter in 2010, and<br />

then did research which culminated<br />

in the Christchurch Golf<br />

Club planning the inaugural<br />

New Zealand Hickory Open for<br />

March 13.<br />

“It’s been a goal of mine since I<br />

got the putter,” said Upton, who<br />

has assembled the largest private<br />

collection of playable hickory<br />

clubs in the country, 461 at last<br />

count.<br />

“I thought to myself: ‘How the<br />

hell did they play golf with these<br />

in those days?<br />

Upton, who started golfing<br />

at age 12, subsequently learned<br />

hickory golf was popular in other<br />

golfing countries, though not<br />

New Zealand.<br />

“I decided I was going to<br />

change that and it’s taken me<br />

this long to get enough (playable)<br />

clubs where you can actually run<br />

something,” he said.<br />

Upton will provide a driver,<br />

mid-iron, mashie (short iron),<br />

mashie niblick (pitching wedge)<br />

and putter unless golfers in the<br />

field of 72 are already equipped<br />

OLD STYLE: Sir Bob Charles and Stu Upton will go back in time to a bygone era of golf<br />

when New Zealand’s inaugural Hickory Open is played at the Christchurch Golf Club in<br />

March.<br />

PHOTO: CHRIS BARCLAY<br />

with clubs cleared by a vetting<br />

process.<br />

“Some clever buggers put a<br />

modern (say 1970s) head on<br />

a hickory shaft. That’s called<br />

cheating,” he said.<br />

Upton has eight left-handed<br />

sets, with the legendary Sir<br />

Bob Charles, who will host the<br />

tournament on his beloved links<br />

course in Shirley, requisitioning<br />

a putter and a niblick.<br />

“This is taking me back<br />

to my earliest playing<br />

days. These 100-year-old<br />

hickories are the original<br />

clubs and they have a<br />

special feel that provides a<br />

great challenge, enabling<br />

us to experience golf as it<br />

was meant to be played”<br />

– Sir Bob Charles<br />

“This is taking me back to<br />

my earliest playing days. These<br />

100-year-old hickories are the<br />

original clubs and they have a<br />

special feel that provides a great<br />

challenge, enabling us to experience<br />

golf as it was meant to be<br />

played,” said Charles.<br />

“This is our contribution to a<br />

world-wide revival of hickory<br />

golf, hopefully it will become an<br />

annual event.”<br />

The tournament concept gathered<br />

momentum when Glenn<br />

Bongartz, a former men’s club<br />

captain at Christchurch, bought<br />

a club from Upton.<br />

“We got talking about our love<br />

for the game and I said ‘Bob’s got<br />

a love for this as well” and after<br />

two years of talking we’ve finally<br />

made it happen.”<br />

Charles, 85, is also part of<br />

the core planning group for a<br />

one-day event featuring foursomes<br />

and individual stroke<br />

play.<br />

Golfers can take on a<br />

2700-yard nine-hole challenge<br />

designed by Charles, who<br />

has shortened some holes to<br />

accommodate the old-style<br />

clubs.<br />

SPORT 13<br />

in bygone era tournament<br />

Paying homage to history<br />

– the hand-forged hickory<br />

era spanned the 1890s to the<br />

1930s – means you sacrifice the<br />

benefits of new technology.<br />

“A good drive, if you’re really<br />

lucky, might be 200m (compared<br />

to 250-285m with state<br />

of the art equipment) and you<br />

don’t have the volume of clubs,<br />

you’ve only got five (or six) in<br />

your bag,” Upton said.<br />

“You have to be a little bit<br />

inventive. That skill or art of<br />

the game has gone, with modern<br />

golf it’s all about drivers<br />

and wedges.”<br />

Charles and Upton will also<br />

look the part after a selection<br />

of plus fours, and tweed vests<br />

arrived from the United Kingdom<br />

last week.<br />

Upton is also producing<br />

hickory tee markers and period<br />

piece flags for the greens. Clubs<br />

will be carried in canvas and<br />

leather bags reminiscent of the<br />

sport’s formative years.<br />

“We’re going the whole nine<br />

yards,” said Upton, aware there<br />

is considerable ground to make<br />

up on a golfing world where<br />

Scotland has hosted the World<br />

Hickory Open since 2005.<br />

Upton built his catalogue<br />

from purchases throughout<br />

the country, and noticed there<br />

was no shortage of clubs based<br />

resistant wood originally imported<br />

from the United States.<br />

“There’s loads out there. They<br />

mass produced them in the<br />

millions. It was like: ‘Where<br />

can we get rid of these? We’ll<br />

dump them in New Zealand’,”<br />

he said.<br />

The 59-year-old has spent<br />

more than 2000 hours restoring<br />

clubs often found languishing,<br />

unloved, in garages or<br />

sheds.<br />

He separates the shaft from<br />

the head, sands the hickory<br />

and then soaks it in water for<br />

several days to reverse any<br />

bend in the club.<br />

“I let it dry for four to five<br />

days and nine times out of 10<br />

the bend comes out to a point<br />

where it’s acceptable.”<br />

While proud of his collection<br />

– Upton urges golfers not to<br />

snap one over a thigh if they<br />

land in the stream dissecting<br />

the 9th – it is not exactly<br />

priceless.<br />

“About one in 25 has some<br />

sort of significant value, the<br />

rest are just common muck,”<br />

he said.<br />

Upton has a putter which<br />

might be valuable – apparently<br />

it was used by John Henry<br />

Taylor to win the Open Championship<br />

at Royal St George’s<br />

in 1894.<br />

“I have no proof, all it has got<br />

is a plaque on it,” said Upton,<br />

who paid $1000 for the club<br />

from a seller in Auckland six<br />

years ago.<br />

“I’ve seen a couple of drawings<br />

of him and his caddie on<br />

the green. You can see him<br />

holding on to a putter but<br />

there’s no way you can say it’s<br />

that putter.”<br />

Upton has no doubt about<br />

the recent history of the putter<br />

he’ll rely on next month, his<br />

original purchase in Akaroa.<br />

“It had a hellishly bent shaft,<br />

now it almost looks brand<br />

new.”<br />

I’VE HAD THE good fortune to<br />

view the Grand Canyon, it certainly<br />

is one of the most spectacular<br />

environments on the planet.<br />

As part of the journey to get<br />

there, my wife and I passed<br />

through Tucson, Arizona, a city<br />

nestled below mountains and<br />

on a desert edge. It was hot, dry<br />

and some of the scenery almost<br />

desolate through that area. So it’s<br />

some surprise then Hyundai chose<br />

that city as a name for one its midsize<br />

sport utility vehicles.<br />

However, it must be working for<br />

Hyundai, the Tucson as a name has<br />

been around since 2004, finding<br />

its way to New Zealand then with<br />

the choice of V6 or four-cylinder<br />

engines.<br />

Today, the Tucson has entered<br />

into its fourth generation, and<br />

not a lot has changed in terms<br />

of concept. It is still the mid-size<br />

family wagon that is quality built<br />

and almost borders on the luxury<br />

car class given its level of fitment<br />

and specification, especially the<br />

N-Line model as evaluated.<br />

Long gone is the old V6,<br />

technology has dictated that fuel<br />

efficiency and low emissions are<br />

the catalyst for modern drivelines.<br />

Today, the Tucson arrives with<br />

three engine options, there<br />

are two petrol units – 1.6-litre<br />

turbocharged and a 2-litre naturally<br />

aspirated – and a 1.6-litre turbo<br />

diesel. There are a total of 11<br />

Tucson variants with front and<br />

four-wheel-drive options thrown<br />

into the mix. The range starts at<br />

$46,990 and ends at $72,990.<br />

The evaluation car was a highspec<br />

N-Line variant. It is a fourwheel-drive<br />

model powered by the<br />

1.6-litre turbo petrol engine and<br />

lists at $68,990. I applaud Hyundai<br />

for the vast choice, it’s something<br />

that any prospective buyer will<br />

need to do a lot of homework on,<br />

but with such a wide variety of<br />

options there is a Tucson to suit<br />

every demand and the choice<br />

you make will be one that doesn’t<br />

present you with kit you don’t<br />

really need or want.<br />

In N-Line specification, the<br />

Tucson carries sporty cosmetic<br />

adornments that make it stand<br />

out from the rest of the group. The<br />

interior has a smattering of red<br />

stitched leather, and red accents<br />

and highlights that complement<br />

well the bold design of the new<br />

Tucson.<br />

Its shape is highlighted by<br />

widespread use of geometric<br />

angles and edges. According to<br />

Hyundai, the Tucson has crisp<br />

parametric shapes, creases that<br />

provide a contrast to its wedge-type<br />

lines. The result is a bold, striking<br />

exterior design that flows through<br />

to the interior.<br />

In terms of specification the<br />

N-Line model has everything<br />

you could wish for. Satellite<br />

navigation, leather seat material,<br />

heated and cooling seats with<br />

electric movement, heated<br />

steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and<br />

Android Auto plus a host of other<br />

minor functions too numerous<br />

AGGRESSIVE: Bold wheels on the Hyundai Tucson give it<br />

an adventurous look.<br />

HYUNDAI TUCSON: Shape is highlighted by widespread use of geometric angles and edges.<br />

to mention, many that are<br />

manipulated through a large centre<br />

console touch screen.<br />

The 2<strong>02</strong>2 Tucson has also been<br />

crash tested, returning a five-star<br />

Australasian New Car Assessment<br />

Program safety rating.<br />

Given its design purpose, there<br />

are no surprises with the Tucson’s<br />

occupant and load carrying<br />

potential. The rear passenger space<br />

is spacious, and under the tailgate<br />

there is a cavernous cargo area that<br />

is certainly up to par.<br />

At the other end sits the delightful<br />

1591cc engine. It’s a unit that is used<br />

widely through Hyundai’s line-up<br />

and that of its Korean partner Kia.<br />

I’ve driven with this engine up front<br />

many times before and I’ve always<br />

delighted in its honesty and lively<br />

nature.<br />

It’s easily a match for the Tucson’s<br />

1538kg kerb weight, with 132kW at<br />

the top end and a healthy 265Nm<br />

of torque available all of the way<br />

from 1500rpm to 4500rpm. The<br />

latter figures promote that feisty<br />

nature, it is a true dynamo from<br />

standstill, ushering in acceleration<br />

with a free and easy manner.<br />

A Tucson buyer with this engine<br />

can expect a standstill to 100kmn/h<br />

acceleration process of 8.8sec,<br />

and for that highway overtake it<br />

will accelerate from 120kmh from<br />

80km/h in 6.6sec.<br />

These are peace of mind figures<br />

that give some indication as to the<br />

ability of this engine and it works<br />

away without showing signs of<br />

fatigue or sounding angry. Drive is<br />

• Price – Hyundai Tucson<br />

N-Line, $68,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4500mm; width, 1865mm;<br />

height, 1650mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

1591cc, 132kW, 265Nm,<br />

seven-speed automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 8.8sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.9/100km<br />

channelled through a seven-speed<br />

dual clutch automatic transmission,<br />

shifts are noticeable but very<br />

quick in their action. Of course, in<br />

N-Line form the driver has access<br />

to changes through steering wheelmounted<br />

paddle shifters should he/<br />

she so desire.<br />

Like most modern vehicles<br />

there are normal, sport and eco<br />

drive modes through a consolemounted<br />

flick switch, however, I<br />

used normal mode for most of my<br />

driving time.<br />

As mentioned, I’ve experienced<br />

this engine many times before and<br />

have always been intrigued by its<br />

fuel use, or rather its lack of. In the<br />

Tucson Hyundai claim a 6.9-litre<br />

per 100km combined cycle average,<br />

at times I’ve come close to meeting<br />

that figure. During my evaluation<br />

time the Tucson was constantly<br />

listing around 8l/100km with<br />

4l/100km showing instantaneously<br />

at 100km/h (engine speed<br />

1800rpm). They are similar figures<br />

to those I achieved in Hyundai’s<br />

sports car, the turbocharged<br />

Veloster, when I evaluated it last<br />

year, which just serves to prove you<br />

can have fun with this engine but<br />

at the same time knowing that it is<br />

not scoffing fuel unnecessarily.<br />

The day I took the Tucson on<br />

my inland highway loop a fierce<br />

nor’wester was blowing across the<br />

Canterbury Plains. That makes<br />

those fuel usage stats even more<br />

remarkable, a head wind going<br />

west was making the engine work<br />

harder than it should have been,<br />

also bearing in mind that heading<br />

in that direction from the city is a<br />

long uphill climb.<br />

In terms of handling, the Tucson<br />

has traditional SUV qualities. Being<br />

four-wheel-drive it has the benefit<br />

of a fully independent suspension<br />

system which provides not just<br />

comfort but good compliance,<br />

movement and subsequent stability<br />

in a corner. N-Line models also<br />

have the benefit of high quality<br />

Michelin tyres (235/50 x 19in),<br />

resulting in direct steering and<br />

accuracy in and out of a corner.<br />

First and foremost, though,<br />

the Tucson in all forms is the<br />

quintessential sport utility vehicle.<br />

It is family-friendly, yet it is also<br />

an invigorating drive. It’s also a car<br />

that’s stood the test of time, only<br />

good vehicles have longevity and<br />

that’s something Hyundai can take<br />

a lot of credit for and I guess with<br />

so many variants on offer they are<br />

confident of satisfying the market<br />

for many more years to come.<br />
