Farmer Day Out - Archery Wars

Farmer Day Out - Archery Wars

Hautapu Rugby Club, 26 March. Games start 11am.

Published on Monday, March 8, 2021

Minimum pain, maximum fun 

 

This activity is a perfect mix of the agility of dodgeball and the precision aim of paintball, with a few bows and foam tipped arrows thrown in for good measure! 

Battle it out on the Archery War combat zone to ‘eliminate’ the opposition by tagging them with an arrow. It's an adrenaline and action-filled alternative to paintball. 

This is a combination of healthy rivalry and the in-your-face action. Players are in close quarters throughout the game, so a lot of banter goes on and everyone gets to see all the action, as it unfolds (unlike paintball, where you often only hear about it after the game has ended). The bows are easy to fire and, with a little bit of practice, you'll be surprised at just how easy it is to hit your target.

STARTING THE CONVERSATION

The Top Six Inches - breaking the mental unwellness stigma by starting a conversation

Monday, March 1, 2021

Author: Marcia

Artist Paul Rangiwahia grew up in the rural town of Hawera and is no stranger to farming stressors. His previous art is displayed outside New Plymouth's Puke Ariki Library and was his first foray into how art could support positive conversations about mental wellbeing. Paul was aware of the pressure farmers faced, not only with new legislation but also with general on-farm stress. To combat the silence and stigma related to mental unwellness he created the artwork called "The Top Six Inches" using the analogy for not only where the majority of the plant roots sit in the soil but also the top six inches of the brain where resilience is developed by farmers who take care of their wellbeing.
