By GILL ALCOCK The weather wiped the gloss off the street rod parade with just half the expected number of cars turning out for the annual Show and Shine. Friday night's rains which caused havoc across the island also flooded the sports club's playing fields. Members of the National Street Rod Association who had made the trip to Wai- heke awoke on Sat- urday morning to find their tents surrounded by water and their cars unable to be moved. However a full day of sunshine allowed the fields to dry out enough for the event to go ahead on Sunday. The Show and Shine was a fundraiser for Waiheke junior sports and attracted half the usual number of cars and spectators to the club, organiser Matt Atiga says. The cars and people who missed the shiny spectacle were those who usually make the trip from Auckland, he says, with the day's crowd made up of residents. Those who went along got a close- up look at classics including a 1927 Essex and a line-up of gleam- ing motorbikes. Youngsters enjoyed a really good day out with heaps of fun things to do'', Mr Atiga says. Mayor to open walkway Walkway opens: Trampers have been enjoying the Awaawaroa to Orapiu walkway since it was approved at Christmas. By GILL ALCOCK Mayor Len Brown will visit Wai- heke this Saturday to open the new Awaawaroa to Orapiu walk- ing track. The track has been used by keen trampers since it was given the green light at Christmas, but its official opening on Saturday- will see mayor Brown joined by members of the local board and Forest and Bird, and keen walk- ers. The ceremony will take place at 11am at the top of Puke O Kai, the hill behind Poderi Crisci Vine- yard. The new track runs from Orapiu Rd near Passage Rock Vineyard to the end of Awaawaroa Rd near Poderi Crisci Vineyard. It is 3km long from end to end and, for the first time, opens up walk- ing access to the Te Matuku pen- insula. The walk features regenerating bush, a mature kauri stand, what is believed to be the biggest puriri tree on the island and views south across the Waitemata Harbour. With the track linking two popular vineyard restaurants it is sure to become popular with locals and visitors alike, says a keen walker. The track, which will be the island's longest stretch of walkway, was made possible by a condition of a subdivision of the Te Matuku Peninsula, owned by Rob Fenwick. Most of the route runs through Fenwick Reserve, a covenanted area on the peninsula. Public access was granted as a condition of subdivision and the creation of the track was funded by the Wai- heke Community Board. Those wishing to join in the event are asked to meet at the end of Awaawaroa Road at 10.30am to walk to the site of the opening ceremony. Following the formalities the public can join the mayor for a walk along the rest of the track to Te Matuku Bay. A bus will return people to their cars at the end of Awaawaroa Rd.
