Cambridge New Zealand events calendar

10:00AM 25 June 2011: Off to a bit of a rocky start – when embedding your Google Calendar be sure to set the time zone before cutting and pasting the embed code – in that code is ctz=UTC; for NZST it should read ctz=UTC=12 (you can modify this manually or recapture the code and paste again – you needed to know that didn’t you :).

Update 10:45 25 June 2011: Better still ctz=Pacific/Auckland which should take care of daylight saving I assume.

Fieldays traffic Cambridge New Zealand

A yearly occurrence with Ag. Fieldays week traffic flowing through and about our town. Mystery Creek is 14 kilometres to the west. Our bridges are the confluence of north south, east west traffic traversing the Waikato River. It’s not all that bad, seems it has been worse in the past, some hold ups morning and night but that’s about it. Town is always pretty quite during Fieldays week.

Agricultural Fieldays window dressing competition 2011

Window dressing

Warwick Roberts chair of Agricultural Fieldays, Helen Hicks, Andrew Taylor Fieldays volunteers with Maree Kaati Manager Cambridge i-SITE in Duke Street, Cambridge this evening. The task; judging shop window displays for the Fieldays Big Little Town competition. The judging team has travelled the far reaches of the Waikato and into the King Country to judge retail window displays in Raglan, Te Aroha, Morrinsville, Matamata, Tirau, Tokoroa and Otorohanga as well as here in Cambridge. Oh, and I forgot the dog – not sure of the name – but he? did have a very firm and friendly handshake! Results of individual town competitions will be published on Monday. The Fieldays begin next Wednesday the 15th of June 2011, just down the road, at Mystery Creek.

Tikorangi Notes: Monday 6 June, 2011

Alas Mark found the first instance of camellia petal blight today – in a japonica. It seems to appear earlier every year. We have never seen it in sasanquas and I was a little surprised this week to hear of claims that in warmer climates, sasanqua camellias are susceptible. We would really like to hear confirmation from anybody who has actually seen it in sasanquas (as opposed to having heard reports of it). We had thought that these Japanese camellias were resistant. Blight has certainly never shown in ours and we are reasonably eagle-eyed on the matter.
