12 Dec 2015 A first birthday, 5-years of taking care of the next generation of Kukis, plus an end-of-year wrap-up. All good reasons to hit the beach at Nikao.
We brought along some in-theme - pirates! - props and decorations, our trusty generator and a bag-full of guy ropes and made a day of it (with a stop at Vaiana’s to unwind post packdown).
With Lil Peepz being our daycare of choice, we roped in aunty Tehani, plus the extended LP-family to run interference while we… ran the booth.
For those who missed out, you can order big prints for collection/drop-off. Hit the Facebook album to find your strip, then in the comments let us know the frame(s) you want printed.

8 Aug 2015 Our first market session for 2015 and a chance for us to catch up with our Arorangi / Puaikura boothers. We took some dazzling strips and pix, added to family portrait collections, chatted to honorary locals and sampled a banoffee cup cake (nom-nom-nom). Plus, Ms. Luna got a costume!.
A big meitaki ma'ata to our booth-operator-in-training Rosaline, who made sure that Mauke got their booth on. :)

29 Nov 2014 With the closing of Vaka Eiva and the recent Cookie league tri-series, we had a few sporter-and-supporter groups at the market this morning. The weather alternated between heat and light showers - awesome if you’re amphibious.
Aroko was a bit unsettled so we headed to the harbour with Troy to check out the boats, and I found out about the voyage to Rakahanga. Then back to the markets to pick up a new backdrop from Aunty Poko.
Next week we kick off our Christmas season (weather permitting).

28 Nov 2014 Weather cleared for a day of endurance events and catch-up for deferred races at Vaka Eiva. For many it was back-to-back racing, a quick freshen-up, and then back to VE HQ for prize giving.
We were set-up in time for the dinner service and started the session with some quick pix with volunteers and organisers. With the help of juniors we met on Tuesday night, we took some great family fotos.
Teams also hit the booth with their medals and trophies, and took advantage of our special same-night enlargement service.
Meitaki to the VE organising committee for including us in the festival.
Enlargements from the Vaka Eiva booth sessions are available from us at the market.

25 Nov 2014 After a day of battling the elements in Muri Lagoon (wind, rain, surf, coral heads), it was time to unwind up at Staircase. As dinner was served - delicious by all accounts - it was also time to dish out the awards, with shell medals for team members and carved team trophies.
In-between formalities, the juniors took to the stage to share talents including crumping, crooning, and kapa haka. As background, we sort of ran the booth, that is until the local paddlers found out that strips were ‘for free’.
Big prints available from the booth at event special rate of just $3.
