11 Oct 2014 …It was a mad dash for us from the Saturday market, to set up in Tupapa, back to Matavera for a costume change, and town again for the 5pm start. Aroko came along in a Wonkeresque outfit, but we had to throw up the bat signal and request an evac. from aunty early on.
This year we were helping Rotaract fundraise for nebulisers, destined for the Pa Enua.
‘Candy Land’ was the theme, and there were some awesome costumes on show. Rotaract put on an evening of activities, dancing, (+ some candy). We added a few extra props and boothers grabbed some of the hall decorations to add some extra pop to the strips.
Photo reprints and enlargements are available (for a limited time), from the booth at Punanga Nui Market, Saturday morning.

11 Oct 2013 There were plenty of cartoon capers at Rotaract’s 2013 Junior Spring Ball. Super heroes, princesses, secret agents, scientists, and Smurfette all came to take pix. Rotaract also put on competitions, group dance sessions, supper and ice-cream to keep the kids cool. An awesome night - we’ll be sure to bring Aroko with us next year.

2 Oct 2013 Everyone was looking well sharp for the Youth Masquerade Ball - especially the guys. The event was run as fundraiser for an upcoming youth conference in New Caledonia, with support from the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Staircase put on a range of topical punches and cocktails, there were some tasty snax, and the sounds cranked-up loud.
Prizes were awarded for categories including ‘Craziest Dancer’, ‘Best Couple’, and King and Queen of the ball - with a ceremonial dance performed to an acapella version of Mou Piri. Throw in some endurance push-ups for good measure and you have a night to remember.
Big prints from the Ball can be purchased from the Island Booth at the market Saturday morning.

26 May 2012 The event: Dante’s Birthday; the theme: Alice in Wonderland; the setting (due to some last-minute weather-woes), Staircase Restaurant & Bar. Newbies barely got a look-in, the initiated taking full advantage of our host's generosity and the offer of unlimited photostrips. Happy birthday Dante!
