By KARA LOK Three Waiopehu College bands have their sights set on winning this year's Smokef- reerockquest regional compe- tition. A Little Broken, Silent Ambitions and Kotahitanga are in the midst of preparing for the competition in Palmer- ston North on June 10. A Little Broken, together since the beginning of the year, dabbles in different styles of music. The group, singer Jimi Bailey, drummer Metera Henare, lead guitarist Jordan Turner and Horowhenua College's Ashlee Collier, on guitar, will be making its Roc- kquest debut, though Jordan and Jimi have competed before. Jordan's former band, Convicted Space Men, won last year's regionals, while Jimi's old band, Stereocault, finished third in the 2009 regionals. Jordan said the group hopes to perform two songs at the rockquest, but has yet to cre- ate a shortlist. This year will be quite dif- ferent because there are no qualifying heats, he said. Silent Ambition drummer Nathan Harding, lead guitar- ist Sean Paulse and bass guitarist Jordan Bowden have been playing together for three years and were recently joined by vocalist Natalia Tuatara. The group describe their music as alternative and are performing two songs written by Nathan, When I met You, and another as yet untitled. Nathan, who has entered rockquest before, said the crowd should prepare to be surprised'' by their perform- ance on June 10. The rockquest is a new experience for Kotahitanga's band members, who were initially nervous about entering. Lead singer Joel Bennett said they had doubts they were capable. However, as the adrenaline kicked in they became more confident and were looking forward to it. The reggae band, which includes Daniel Toleafoa, Jayden Whiley, Himiona Henare and Obrien Saili, will also enter Pacifica Beats later this year. Inquiries start on new route Investigations to find the route of the Horowhenua expressway will cover an area from near the Tara- rua Range to near the district's coast. The study area has been revealed by the New Zealand Transport Agency as it begins narrowing down the route of the four-lane road stretching from Otaki to the Manawatu River, south of Foxton. Regional state highways manager David McGonigal said the work will help determine the best options for the project taking into account timings, cost and environmental con- cerns''. The agency has placed display panels in the offices of Horowhenua District Council with infor- mation about the purpose of the project, the study area, and process and timelines. The new information outlines a broad indica- tive'' study area that runs east of State Highway 57 and west of Levin. Formal public engagement will be carried out in early 2012 to seek feedback on corridor options,'' Mr McGonigal said. Tramper choppered out An injured tramper was winched out of the Tararua Ranges on Monday after spending a night in a hut. The man, in his 30s, hurt his ankle near the Waitewaewae Hut, behind Otaki Forks, while on a tramping trip with friends on Sunday. Palmerston North Rescue Helicop- ter base manager Fergus MacLach- lan said the man's friends walked him 40 minutes back to the hut, gave him their food and left to get help. Fog delayed rescuers, who reached the man about 12.45pm Monday.
