This weekend the team from Bowater Hyundai will be heading down to the western end of the front beach at Tahunanui to participate in what we hope to be quite an epic battle of beach cricket. The show kicks off bright and early at 9.30am at Tahuna Saturday 24th, but get there at 9am to sign in.
Hyundai have pulled out all of the stops and set up an epic contest - to be played out between a plethora of teams of 6 from around the region, culminating in a bragging rights champion for the day and the chance to win a share of $25,000 worth of Hyundai Family Time.
It is awards season, with all of the motoring magazines, websites and organisations putting together their lists of favourites.
One of the heavy hitters in all of this is the New Zealand Motoring Writers' Guild (NZMWG), who in conjunction with AA motoring experts, put together the first big awards ranking that has everyone talking. They consider styling, performance, handling, economy, comfort, build quality and finish, value for money and the x-factor when selecting those vehicles to win their categories.
This year was the turn of the Hyundai Santa Fe to turn out a stella performance. It came in top of the heap of the Large SUV bunch, something certainly not lost on the good people of Nelson and Tasman, who have been buying up this wonderful multi purpose vehicle in record numbers over the past year.
Today Bowater Hyundai CEO Chris Bowater got to get very close to the ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy - the actual 25kg World Cup in all of it's gold and silver glory.
The trophy is doing a tour of the country ahead of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup Tournament which gets underway this summer, with the first games swinging into action on Feb 14th 2015. Nelson is very lucky to also be a part of this global event, with the first of 3 games being played in Nelson starting on the 16th February.
Bowater Hyundai are super excited to be a part of the action and have partnered up with the Nelson City Council to make sure everyone locally is as excited as we all are. It is a great opportunity to get involved with an internationally watched tournament, with some statistics stating that a billion people will be watching!

The ICC Cricket World Cup is one of the world's largest, and most watched global sports events. Quite frankly it is massive, and a massive honour for Nelson to be involved in it, let alone host teams and have 3 games to go and see. Set aside some time now people - this is a great opportunity to see actual world class cricket in our own backyard!
Hyundai internationally are a global partner with the International Cricket Council (The I.C.C.), as well as the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, so naturally this means that the team at Bowater Hyundai have the opportunity to be involved as well. We are very proud to be working together and partnered with the Nelson City Council on this event as it is going to bring so much attention in to our region. Watch this space as we get closer to the tournament, we have some exciting plans tucked away to wow you all with.
The Nelson City Council are very excited about the upcoming tournament as it gives them a chance to showcase the region to a huge global audience during our traditional blisteringly hot, clear and calm February days - the chance to show everyone what a great place Nelson and Tasman are to live in, as well as to visit on holiday!
As a part of the partnership we are working with, we recently had the opportunity to present the Nelson City Council representative, Deputy Mayor Paul Matheson, with the council's new signwritten Hyundai i20 in our central Nelson showroom on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy Streets.
The vehicle is to join their fleet and primarly be used by their community services group manager. They chose the Hyundai i20 GL for it's great mix of fuel efficiency and safety features.
