They Came to Scoff but Remained to Play

They Came to Scoff but Remained to Play

The hockey season started off enthusiastically by a practice game at Karori Park. The keenness of the beginners was particularly noticeable and should be an indication that they will emerge from their apprenticeship as proficient players.

Last season we entered three teams. The Seniors showed considerable improvement and were promoted to Senior A Grade where, however, they found the going rather rough. The Juniors' enthusiasm resulted in their attaining a good standard and they finished well up the grade. The Intermediates were hampered by not having enough players, but at the end of the season they all had a sound knowledge of hockey and ought to do well in higher grades.

Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Ralph presented the Club with a trophy for the most improved player. Marie Simpson is to be congratulated on being the first winner.

College Blues were awarded to four senior playera—Daisy Filmer, Marion Marwick, Vivienne Rich and Ruth Russell.

To wind up the season a dance was arranged with the Men's Club. This went off very well, and we hope to see similar functions held in the future.

At this year's Annual Meeting the following officers were elected:—Patron: Mr. G. F. Dixon. President: Mr. B. Kean. Vice-Presidents: Mrs. C. R. Richardson, Miss Betty Rider, Mrs. C. J. Ralph. Club Captain: Daisy Filmer. Secretary: Ruth Russell. Treasurer: Vivienne Rich. Committee: Marion Marwick.

Freshers will elect their representative when they are better acquainted.

This year weekly practices will be held on Thursday nights in the Gym. We want full teams this year, so even if you don't know which is the business end of a hockey stick, come along and learn.
