thousands of old cathode ray sets no longer in
use in Kiwi households.

Spirit trust after
A campaign is underway to reconnect the
Spirit of Adventure Trust with as many
former voyagers as possible.
Ten years ago the voyage records of past
Spirit of New Zealand and Spirit of Adven-
ture sailings were destroyed in a flood.
The lost alumni'' campaign is aimed at
anyone who has sailed on the Spirit of
New Zealand or Spirit of Adventure, and
aims to capture details and photographs
from past sailings, as well as find people
interested in supporting the trust.
As part of the campaign, the trust's
principle corporate partner Hyundai

The project dates back to 1990 when a
small Wellington collective came together to
research and create a resource to commem-
orate 150 years since the signing of Te Tiriti
