July 2020

Hello all,

Hope you are all well, with a strong chance the dreadful virus is all over we will have a spring back in the step.

The Snooker section are conducting their Handicap Drawn Pairs with a very even Field of 12 players. We are at the Semi-final stage, so the results will be in our next issue. In three weeks’ time, the section has three teams entered in interclub Snooker.

The room at Holt Place is open seven days a week from 10am till 10pm and the cost of a visit is only $2. Cheap as.

The Pool Section AGM is being held on Monday 6 July at 6pm. This is open to all section members so please come along to have your input.

Now that we are in level 1, our interclub season is about to start on the Tuesday 7 (Prems & Div 1) and Wednesday 8 July (Div 2 & 3). We will only be playing one round this year because of the lockdown, and there will be no promotion / delegation with teams this year.

At this stage, Finals Day is planned for Woolston.

Well what do we say about fishing in lockdown? Actually, not a lot. I think most of us just hunkered down, accepted it, and dreamed of fish that were happy swimming around growing fatter and thus easier for us to catch once we were unshackled.

A couple of brave (or mad) members went down to Lake Benmore and tried the canals and Ohau, but with conditions below freezing and the fish still mostly in hibernation, not a lot of success was had.

Hello everybody,

Well things are very close to normal now and with the shortest day now passed, psychologically we can feel like things are on the up, even though we have some rough weather to come.

Hello, welcome to all members.

Hope you all managed to get through the past few months safely. It is great to finally be able to resume some normality back in our Club and our section.

We started our first Thursday night Euchre night on 18 June. We had 28 players, which was awesome to see, especially as it was the first night and a cold day. We are starting our Thursday nights at an earlier time of 7pm from now on, playing our usual 12 games, which allows us to finish just prior to 9.30pm.
