Hi Southerners,

We had a good number of volunteers at the Balclutha A&P Show.
Katie took the day - hardly staying at the table at all. She brought in 241 signatures by herself, absolutely blowing us away!
Running from 9:30am til about 4:00pm, we collected 980 signatures - approximately 20%of the 5,000 strong crowd at the Show!

Natalie, our Otago coordinator from the Catlins says...
"Very exciting week for us down here just wonderful to see people climbing on board now. Great to see people are more aware of the petition, very lucky to get lots of exposure over the radio on the lead up to the show . That is due to each and everyone of you all getting out there and spending time with the people. We had some wonderful helpers from Christchurch, Dunedin and Mosgiel at the Show.

A big thank you to each of you, we are truly grateful to have the Moore Family who are out there travelling around New Zealand. Craig thank you for your humour and encouragement.Katie great stuff you have a real gift, keep it up.Thankfully we weren't placed next to the Greens Tent , like in Christchurch Sue Bradford would have been wrapped that I had lost my vocal capacity. Just great to meet people out there with a team of great people, makes it an enjoyable day. Went to Gore last week great response and will be there next week on Tuesday 4th December, do you want a ride? I told Bill English that he would be seeing a lot more of us down his way.

I am looking for people to help in Invercargill in the next two weeks I can pick up and transport people from Balclutha or you could meet me in the Catlins and we will do the Southern Scenic Route down and make a day of it bring a packed lunch... and togs?

I will be in Blenheim, four weeks in total and I am keen to have some happy face's come along and give a hand.

Centre City Mall have plenty of free spaces for us to target the Mall next week let me know what day may suit you and I will book it and come up, they have the yummiest fudge there! ( join me and the fudge will be on me ) Let me know by Friday this week please. 03 41 58243. Looking forward to many more fun times with you all."


Back in Christchurch, a team of three hit the town. Late afternoon, they headed over to the Coca Cola Christmas in the Park concert, and then on Sunday morning they went to Riccarton Market. Bringing in 758 signatures, they did extremely well for such a small team! It does make you think though - how many signatures did we miss out on because we didn't have enough volunteers at the Concert?

Our strategy for the coming months is really going to be just hitting these events, such as A&P shows and other concerts.

Also, it is important to keep up the weekly tables as these keep a steady flow of signatures flying up to Larry Baldock's office in Tauranga.

If you can help - or if you know someone who might be able to help, please get back to me. What we are finding more and more, is that there are plenty of people who are happy to sign - we just need the volunteers to bring in these signatures - and it's so easy! If we don't get a few more volunteers however, the statistics are not in our favour: we will not make the required number of signatures by the cut off date.

As always, please forward this on to anyone who you think may be interested!

And remember the words of Edmund Burke: "All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing".

Kind Regards,
