Wellingtonians to Show their Support for Haier Pulse

Media Release

1 March 2013

Wellingtonians to Show their Support by Signing Personal Messages on a Haier Pulse Suzuki Swift

With less than a month to go before the start of what promises to be an exciting and highly-charged 2013 ANZ Netball Championship, the Haier Pulse will be out and about all next week to celebrate the launch of the new season.

The team has already received a major boost, with the world’s No.1 brand of major appliances, Haier Appliances, extending its highly-successful partnership into a fourth year. “Haier is thrilled to support the team, and we are excited to see what they will bring to the championship this season,” said Troy Scragg, General Manager Haier New Zealand.

Brendan Foot Supersite and Suzuki have also teamed up with the players. As the official vehicle suppliers, they are helping to get the Haier Pulse around in five brand new Suzukis, one of which is a bright yellow Suzuki Swift. The car will be parked in various key locations around the capital during the week and the girls are asking the Wellington public to show their support and sign the bodywork with their personal messages of support.

Wellington’s Deputy Mayor, Ian McKinnon and players from other Wellington sporting codes will be joining the team on Tuesday morning at the Wellington Railway Station to write their own messages for the team.

There will also be an opportunity for the public to meet the 2013 squad (and grab those all-important autographs) at the home of the Haier Pulse, Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua, on Friday between 4-5pm.

The Suzuki Swift can be signed in the following locations next week:

Tuesday, 5 March

8.15am-9am, Wellington Railway Station

Wednesday, 6 March

12.30pm-1.30pm, Midland Park (off Waring Taylor Street, Central Wellington)

Thursday, 7 March

12.30pm-1.30pm, Waterfront under the Sails (Queens Wharf, Central Wellington)

Friday, 8 March

12.30-1.30pm, Exodus Carpark (Tory Street, Central Wellington)

4pm-5pm, Te Rauparaha Arena, Porirua

The Haier Pulse play the Thunderbirds in Adelaide on 24 March in their opening game of the 2013 ANZ Championship.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
