All proceeds through donations and auctions will go towards Canter- bury Hockey and their earthquake relief. Black Stick players and celebrities from both the New Zealand sport- ing and media scene will be brought together on the hockey field for the night. The event will also have a past Black Sticks versus current Black Sticks as the curtainra- iser along with Harbour Fusion Gymnastics and kapa haka displays. Bevan Hari, who played more than 200 tests for New Zealand between 1997 and 2008, has confirmed he will take part in the match. I accepted the invi- tation to participate as soon as I was asked. It will be great to catch up with past team mates and take on the youth of today. I'll have to see how the legs hold up though, I don't think I'll be as fast as I used to be,'' Hari says. There will also be an opportunity for the kids to partake in a gladiator- style obstacle course to win money for their school to be spent on either a capital or edu- cational project. The celebrities and VIP guests will enjoy a barbecue after the match with support from John at Butcher Jacks on Glenfield Rd providing the meat, while the large expected crowd will be able to enjoy music from DJ Christian. The evening kicks off at 6.30pm at North Har- bour Hockey Stadium. Entry is free. Grand Prix cycle race like 'motorsport without petrol' The annual North Shore Grand Prix cycle race gets under way tonight on Hurstmere Rd at 5.30pm and culminates with the elite men class, whose race also doubles as the New Zealand Criterium Champion- ship. There are sure to be some dynamic perfor- mances and it will be fas- cinating to see who comes out on top,'' Steve Hilson from event spon- sor Jerry Clayton BMW says. Cycling at this level is like motorsport without the petrol and we encourage people to line the track and get up close to the action.'' There simply isn't a greener mode of trans- port than cycling, and sponsoring this event is particularly apt as BMW has been recognised by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index as the world's most sustainable car company -- for six consecutive years.''
