Maadi Cup Tweets

Stroke: sits at the front and looks pretty Bow: has an amazing talent for finding floating trees, banks, other boats, etc

I did a search interested to see what the take up of Twitter is among this cohort of people; um – not great. Maadi the place in Egypt is mentioned numerous times – most probably by an age group a decade or half a decade older. Then I am only using the one word search; ‘Maadi’. Could also be that phone to phone texting is so ubiquitous here that Twittering is of little interest. That and it’s public nature and ease of use or not.

Now I have found: Twitter Alerts. Well a Twitter alert service called TweetBeeps.

New Zealanders at Maadi Camp

Fernleaf Cairo: New Zealanders at Maadi Camp: By Alex Hedley with Megan Hutchin. WIndow display Wrights Bookshop 54 Victoria Street Cambridge 3434 this morning Saturday the 28th of March 2009.

Launch Tuesday the 7th of April 2009 at Hedleys Booksellers 150 Queen St Masterton New Zealand. www.harpercollins.co.nz

Egypt was a source of boundless amazement, sly humour and some disgust to the New Zealanders, an experience which left its mark, both on our language — ‘taking a shufti’ — and more tangibly, the Maadi Rowing Cup. more

Cambridge NZ supports rowing?

This poster has graced the Duke Street window of photographers Hot Shots To Go for the past month. It celebrates the involvement of Cambridge photographers (six – at least – by our count) in the annual rowing regattas on Lake Karapiro over the past two decades and more. An involvement which, in our memory, goes back to the mid 1980’s. The poster and accompanying window display – which includes film from the 1978 World Rowing Championships – has elicited much interest from visitors and locals, rowers and not. With the staging of the 2009 Maadi Cup at Karapiro in a few days time – the last regatta before the serious work of the Karapiro Lake Domain makeover for the 2010 World Rowing Championships begins – Cambridge shopkeepers are being asked to adopt a school for the duration of the regatta – hopefully reflected in supportive window displays. One hopes this is a success – comments about our poster suggest many find it odd that one of the largest sporting events in Australasia often appears all but ignored, in Cambridge CBD, less than 12 minutes & 9 kilometres away from the much celebrated action.

Clifton Rowing Club 2008


Clifton Rowing Club 2008 from Michael Jeans on Vimeo. (I see the title says March 2009 – my mistake – that should be March 2008).

This has been around for a while. It was made some time last year. I used it just now to check out my new Vimeo subscription. There is no sound. It does I trust give a little taste of rowing at Karapiro – well watching rather than doing. At just over 11 minutes it is just a mite repetitive but it does the trick. The two schools involved; Sacred Heart Girls’ College New Plymouth and New Plymouth Boys’ High School.

These photographs were taken on Sunday the 16th of March 2008 at NISS rowing champs at Lake Karapiro.

Update 30/08/2008: Oops! Nathan is missing as is Matthew. And I thought I was doing so well. Later. And while I am at it Firefox is my browser of choice. Viewing galleries in other than Firefox may be disappointing. There is something wrong with the search box function. Yesterday was fun and very well done.

Update 10/10/08: The lightbox (slideshow) function is not yet available on my new server.

Update 15/11/08: A version of this gallery is now available on Issuu.
