ROTOITI - First Division Champion Cup Winners for Queenstown 2019

All the efforts and preparation to finally arrive in Queenstown paid off. To see the kids' faces being at an airport, to watching them go through the process of checking out, from lift-off to being in a place outside their comfort zones was heart-warming. We farewelled two of our Bay of Plenty reps before the starting of the tournament with a hearty haka that left a few tears from our boys to see their brothers leave, so we played for them.

To know we had the support of our families, friends, organisations and Iwi trusts was a bonus. We had many compliments from Air New Zealand attendants, people from all walks of life, on how the kids carried themselves in public with politeness and respect. We represented the club and our sponsors with pride and respect which flowed through our entire tour.

We can't thank you enough for the support.

    There are a number of opportunities that were identified in the Plan that we would like to discuss:

    • Wetland restoration: we have a proposed planting plan for consideration
    • Sites of significance: as appropriate, sites are to be identified so they can be acknowledged in an appropriate manner
    • Interpretation: throughout the project area there is an opportunity to tell pakiwaitara
    • Mural:  this is a new opportunity we want to raise. There is a control building to be constructed for the equipment that will operate the culvert gates. There is an opportunity to paint the sides of the building with a mural (or similar) instead of just green paint

    From an initial hui held on Friday 24 August at the Western BoP District Council office hui we have developed three Mauri Monitoring survey questions that we wish to use as a basis for a conversation with members of iwi groups involved in the Kaituna River Re-diversion project, including individuals who wish to be involved in the Mauri Monitoring online survey.

    We would like to ask you to respond to the following three open-ended questions:

    Question 1: What are your views about the mauri of the Kaituna River, Te Awa o Ngātoroirangi and the Maketu Estuary?

    Question 2: What specific areas and activities are significant to your mauri within the Kaituna Re-diversion area?

    Question 3: What are the likely impacts on your mauri and the mauri of the Kaituna River, Te Awa o Ngātoroirangi and the Maketu Estuary over time?

    To enable us to gather as wide a response as possible to these questions, we would like to:

    EITHER

    • 1.     Talk to you individually. To do that, please respond to this email with a suggested time and place to talk to you.

    AND/OR

    • 2.     Meet you with iwi representatives to discuss the questions. We would like this to take place before the last week of November if possible. We can attend a hui already planned or support a hui specifically for this purpose.

    In both instances we would, of course, like listen to and record the conversations, which will enable us to proceed with establishing the baseline Mauri Monitoring Indicators

    OR

    • 3.     Invite you to answer the three questions via the on-line survey link: https://goo.gl/forms/o6cmEztVh5Hzk4Xh1
    • Please note that are the three questions are the same as the above but framed more tightly to enable better analysis.
