An impromptu appeal to the
people of Queenstown during
Waitangi Day celebrations netted
new fundraising opportunities for
a young ice hockey player hoping
to fulfil his dream.
Wakatipu Whanau Group mem-
ber Ned Webster called Jakob
Newell, 12, to the stage during
official celebrations to introduce
him and ask those gathered to
help raise funds to get Jakob and
his team-mates to Canada next
month. Ten aspiring players will
attend the annual Peewee Inter-
national Friendship Hockey Tour-
nament in Aldergrove, near
Vancouver, from March 15 to 25.
The appeal saw a member of the
crowd donate a handwoven flax
bag to be auctioned and a local bar
manager offered Jakob the oppor-
tunity to come and discuss
funding with him.
Emma Newell, Jakob's mother,
said her son was delighted by the
gesture and said the trip was
costing $5500 per child.
''We've fundraised $3500 per child
already and we have a sumo
wrestling night planned at the
start of March but we still need
more funds,'' she said.
The tournament gives young
players the opportunity to play in
a tournament environment
against children their own age,
Former Ice Black Braden Lee has
been training the young players
three times a week and they have
been travelling to the ice rink in
Gore for time on the ice once a
fortnight as well, she said.
The players will be accompanied
to Canada by Queenstown-based
Southern Stampede import player
Mike Sommer, who coaches the
Teams from Australia, Canada,
Japan, South Korea and the US
will be at the tournament.

Fat Freddy's Drop trombonist,
Joe ''Hohepa'' Lindsay, says the
band had many highlights last
year, but starting off 2013 with a
countrywide tour should set them
up well for another cracker.
''We had a great time in Europe
and festivals in Portugal and
Croatia would have to be stand-
outs, as well as testing songs from
the new album in the Sydney
Opera House,'' he said.
''But starting off the year with a
tour that takes in some great
venues with acts like Anika, Boh
and Hollie and The Adults is
going to be awesome.''
Fat Freddy's Drop last played
Queenstown in 2011, and it re-
mains a favourite for the band.
''It's always a great vibe down
there, and we're well aware that
because of the huge international
population there, we always have
the potential to earn ourselves a
few new international fans. You
never know, someone from
Europe or the States might see us
in Queenstown, then next time
we're in their neck of the woods
they might drag a whole bunch of
people along to come see us.''
But narrowing down the band's
list of songs into a workable set
list was always a challenge.
''Our songs aren't short, and
there's quite a few of them now, so
the set list is something we decide
on every night. We'll sit down, see
how we're feeling and basically
whittle it down from there. But if
the crowd's already jumping we'll
play something real stonky, so I
guess it's all about the crowd as
