Karapiro Rowing’s Cambridge Town Cup regatta begins about now (this year it incorporates the North Island Rowing Championships) at Lake Karapiro, today, Friday the 29th of January 2010. The regatta continues tomorrow Saturday the 30th and concludes on Sunday the 31st of January 2010. The Cambridge Fine Wine Company owners Andy and Nikki Anderson and Cambridge CBD neighbours Carey King and Kerrin O’Regan of Cambridge Computer Services – that’s Carey in the photo – are sponsors of the rowing event along with other Cambridge businesses.
For the the third evening in a row slow moving electrical storms above and all around us. This one edged close to Leamington from the south west before moving away to the west and north.
A reader reminds me that athletics meetings were held on Victoria Square – formerly known as the Government Acre – before the move to Athletic Park on the Greenbelt at the Hamilton Road (SH1) Vogal Street corner. As I recall running at least the one meeting on the square the move must have happened around 1960 when I was intermediate / middle school age – please correct me if I am wrong. Athletic Park is on the left as you slow for the 50k sign travelling into Cambridge from the north west on the Hamilton Cambridge road.
Michael Shaw’s BagNotes coverage of the Haitian earthquake and the politics of imagery in general is always thought provoking.
The other lake around here. Te Ko Utu in the Cambridge Domain.
In a word – poor.
It’s waka ama week at Lake Karapiro this week the 19th – 23rd January 2010. This morning I spent an hour mooching about chatting and taking photos – thanks to each and every one of you for happily taking part in my random guy walks up and asks to take your photo behind the scenes at waka ama project – thanks especially to Ralph for the cool ‘cover shot’ and thanks also to those in the couple of sneaky shots.
Not sure that it was this particular version – and obviously from a US database. Chosen by the FB DOB No1 song App.

Spotted in the Cambridge CBD – maps in hand – this morning, Saturday, the 16th of January 2010. They did appear to be at the very least on an orienteering expedition – could they be scoping out a New Zealand adventure race? I really have no idea.

This walking group – there are others – has been in existence for twelve years.
Things may be a little messy around here for a while as I make some aesthetic and structural changes. I have no option but to do this live so please bear with me. You may continue navigating the posts while this is happening – some may appear a little wonky until I make individual adjustments. The page menu is moving to the side bar. The first challenge is to get the images in current posts correctly aligned. The side bar will then be revamped. The idea is to achieve a cleaner look with less distractions and more intuitive navigation both here and on my gallery server.
Note: Most images will be unavailable here until about 1AM tomorrow morning 08/01/2010. This is to allow upgrade and maintenance work to be carried out on my image server – located at zenfolio.com – something which happens roughly every ninety days. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Second cousins Avaria and Hawaikirangi – both great grand children of Te Mana and Sophie Tipene – at their whanau noho marae along with 45 other family members, today Thursday the 7th of January 2010. A chance to learn about their heritage and strengthen family ties. Cambridge Community Marae is located on the corner of Pope Terrace / Cambridge Road and Bracken Street Leamington.
A quiet tonight – still a healthy turn out – though not the bursting-at-the-seams November meet. The next is Wednesday evening the 3rd of February 2010.
American PhD (Cultural Anthropology) student and New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarships (NZIDRS) recepient Matthew Harms – has a blog at Kiwi Chronicles. Here is a run down of what he’s up to – (from the 2009 NZIDRS recipient list).
Cambridge based – advertorial for the most part – this is obviously not aimed at me – I guess I’m sort of over magazines anyway. Perhaps it’s aimed at people who like Flash Websites – The Sample Room for example (pity the lack of content and search engine visibility). Ho hum. There are mistakes – the sort I make because I don’t have an editor – it’s brooklands.net.nz, it was Cambridge Power Board and Karapiro is spelt so. Same market as the more established and BOP based Uno.Central; – they appear to share a similar template. Both published quarterly and retail for $10.00.

A fine outing from under brewer Oliver. Sharp and dry – an excellent compliment to that summer salad.
