Beer,

So the Mata­mata Pi­ako Dis­trict Sports Awards are over for another year.

Look­ing through all the nom­i­na­tions was a real eye-opener for me.

I was amazed by the sheer va­ri­ety of sport and the high stan­dards achieved by so many in the com­mu­nity.

It also high­lighted the valu­able sup­port pro­vided by so many vol­un­teers.

A Sport Waikato ini­tia­tive lets you recog­nise th­ese vol­un­teers or sport mak­ers through­out the year sim­ply by nom­i­nat­ing them at sport­waikato. org. nz/ nom­i­nate_ your_vol­un­teers.cfm.

Nom­i­nees re­ceive a card en­ti­tling them to spe­cial of­fers at busi­nesses around the dis­trict and go into a monthly draw to win awe­some sports prizes.

What a great way to say thank you.

Hol­i­day Ac­tiv­ity Tips – only one month to go.

Drink plenty of wa­ter and drink al­co­hol sen­si­bly.

Buy ac­tive toys for your chil­dren then get out­side and play with them.

Plan ac­tive things to do as a fam­ily – try a new bike trail or walk.

Plan 30 min­utes for your­self each day – ex­er­cise is a great way to re­duce hol­i­day stress.

If you are find­ing it hard to get mo­ti­vated make a New Year Res­o­lu­tion to ask about the Sport Waikato Green Pre­scrip­tion three month sup­port pro­gramme.

The Sport Waikato Of­fice will be closed from De­cem­ber 23, re­open­ing on Jan­uary 6.
