Paraparaumu beat Kapi-Mana to retain the Jackways Shield

A very enjoyable inter club tournament was held at the Kapi-Mana club on Sunday 8 October.  At stake was the Jackways Shield which is competed for annually by our two clubs.  At the end of the day Paraparaumu came out the winners retaining the Shield by 691.82 points to 608.18. 

 

There were some particularly good performances with Paraparaumu taking out 8 of the top ten places.  Avril Wotton and Lynda Evans finished first on 62.95,  Kevin Macmanus and Michael Stace were second on 61.82 and Laurel Nalder and Jill Browne came third on 56.59.

 

Survey on Thursday Daytime sessions preserves status quo

In the recent survey on Thursday daytime session times the large majority of respondents preferred to retain the existing 10:30 am start time and to have lunch at the Club.  Arising out of the survey a number of members also voiced their concern at the possibility of Thursday and other afternoon sessions being put back to 1:30 pm.  Accordingly start times for all daytime sessions will remain unchanged for 2018.

The full survey results have been posted with the minutes of the August committee meeting in the clubhouse.
