Mother Earth Get Behind Bay of Plenty Netball

Mother Earth Get Behind Bay of Plenty Netball


Mother Earth has announced an exciting new partnership with the Waikato Bay of Plenty Zone with the launch of “Mother Earth Player of the Day” awards.

Mother Earth has been a proud supporter of the Waikato Bay of Plenty Kia Magic netball team for 5 years but has expanded their focus to supporting community netball with this new initiative.

Seven netball centres in the Waikato Bay of Plenty region will participate in Mother Earth Player of the Day – Whakatane, Otorohanga, Cambridge, Te Awamutu, Tokoroa, Harbourside (Tauranga) and Matamata.

For ten weeks, each of the seven netball centres will select and award Mother Earth Player of the Day recipients with product from Mother Earth and a special certificate.

The new focus extends the reach of the current netball sponsorship beyond elite athletes and offers Mother Earth an opportunity to get behind every day Kiwis participating in sport and living a healthy active lifestyle.

Each netball centre will select their winners based on outstanding demonstration of teamwork, notable effort or improvement in netball skills, and passion for the game.

“The shift in focus and launch of this concept is a direct result of Mother Earth’s commitment to supporting its local communities and being involved at a grass roots level,” says Mother Earth senior brand manager, Caroline Potter. “Our hope is that through Mother Earth Player of the Day we are encouraging and rewarding young people in the community who are getting involved with local sport.”

The programme kicked off with the first game of the season on 10 May where the first Mother Earth Player of the Day awards were handed out.

To celebrate the launch, one of the first recipients, Kiefer Davies, was randomly selected to attend the Kia Magic vs Mainland Tactix game in Tauranga last night. At half time on court, Kiefer was presented with a certificate and product goodies from the Mother Earth mascot, Basil McNuts.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
