Weekend round-up: Presidents’ Cup at BMW, Frank Kitts Market, and Point2paint

For a few moments on Saturday, golfing’s Presidents’ Cup was in Wellington, at the Jeff Gray BMW dealership on the old Hutt Road in Kaiwharawhara.
   BMW, which has a Golfsport collection of golf bags as branded items to go with the cars, took the opportunity to promote itself, with the Cup shown alongside some of its off-road and lifestyle vehicles, such as the X6, X5 and 5 Gran Turismo.
   There was plenty more happening in Wellington on Saturday. The weekly Frank Kitts Market, underground at the Frank Kitts car park on Jervois Quay, has been one place we’d marked on our calendars for some time. In an earlier visit, we spotted Earth 174—the beauty line that recently presented a prize to the value of NZ$2,500 and a gift basket to Miss Universe New Zealand 2011 Priyani Puketapu—along with our friend Jenny Holmes and the Lavender Boutique (the soaps are must-haves) and jewellery from Christina’s Beads.
   The latest news is that the Market will be open Sundays as well from August 27 to October 16, taking in the extra interest from the Rugby World Cup and the Brancott Estate World of Wearable Art events.
   For those preferring to remain indoors this winter, travel editor Stanley Moss has pointed us to Silvergate Software’s Point2paint app for the Apple Ipad. It’s a delightfully simple app for budding artists, young and old, and has no add-ons. It does what it says on the tin—a fun virtual painting program, available at the Itunes store.
