Event Sector Voluntary Code: COVID 19
15 October 2020
An Event Sector Voluntary Code has been developed by the event sector associations, with the support of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment. It outlines what event organisers should consider to safely hold events in a COVID-19 environment and follows Ministry of Health best practice guidance on reducing COVID-19 related risks.
Choosing a Sound System
8 October 2020
I have recently had a few enquiries from clubs looking to make changes to their sound system, so thought I would put together a quick spiel explaining some of the things to consider.
I will try to keep it as low tech as possible, but it is impossible to talk sound systems without some understanding of the terms involved. Let’s start with speakers…
Things to consider when purchasing a new projector
1 October 2020
First thing to think about is the room size where you want to use it. If its not a large space, you may want to consider a LED screen mounted to the wall instead. TV screen prices have come down a lot in the past few years with The Warehouse selling 50” TVs for less than $500, and 70” for less than $1000. A TV will usually provide a better picture (and sound), especially in brighter environments, and you don’t have to worry about a separate white screen to project upon or how to mount the projector somewhere suitably distanced from the wall.

Invercargill Workingmen's Club Spud Dig Day
2 September 2020
Many years ago, a group of members of the Invercargill Workingmen’s Club (also known as IWMC) wanted to do something for Hospice, an organization that many of our community have family frequent. Their idea was novel; a spud competition, but not just any spud was to be grown.
Club Staff Supporting Members
26 August 2020
Upper Hutt Cossie Club staff recently donated $20 each to provide 100 free meals for the Club’s elderly members. From the Club’s over 70 years membership database 50 members were drawn randomly and were delivered two meals each in late July.
The generous gesture by the staff was in appreciation of the Club’s support of staff throughout the Covid lockdown with all staff receiving 100% of their wages and none being made redundant. Previously staff had donated goods to the local Foodbank.
Contact Tracing under Alert Level 2
20 August 2020
It is now mandatory for businesses including clubs to display the NZ COVID Tracer App QR Code for contact tracing purposes. The rules for contact tracing have changed slightly since May and there has been a little confusion around the requirements.
The current COVID-19 Public Health Response (Alert Levels 3 and 2) Order 2020 requires businesses to:
Sports and Tournaments under Alert Level 2
20 August 2020
Just as most clubs were getting back into the swing of adjunct activities and tournaments along came COVID. Unfortunately for our Auckland Clubs Alert Level 3 obviously puts a hand brake on everything. For the rest of the country operating at Alert Level 2 there are opportunities for recreation and sport to continue. It is not business as usual and clubs must ensure that they can meet the Government requirements and that members are informed and able to cooperate with those requirements.
Businesses must now display the NZ COVID Tracer QR Code
13 August 2020
Under Alert Levels 2 and 3, all businesses and services are required to display the official NZ COVID Tracer QR code posters in a prominent place at or near the main entrances to each of their premises (this is in addition to your requirement as a hospitality business to maintain a register for contact tracing purposes).
