Do You Read Newspapers?

If you read newspapers you will have read their excellent coverage of tennis, rowing and Drinking Horn. This last was given the attention it deserved. Reports did fail to make it clear that speed was the essence and not quantity which caused fears that "Mother of Five" would be writing to the Press any moment.

Bal Reddy starred as the tennis hero, well deserved after his performance and we had the unusual spectacle of Victoria cornering the final.

Least well reported was the shooting probably because Trentham is a long way out of town during Easter week-end when so many other events are being reported. Perhaps the team may care to let Salient have a fuller story including the mistaken target tragedy. That is all that remains for the full record.

All the competitors deserve congratulations and the organisers deserve some sort of special award which they are certain not to get. Do the executive feast them after it is all over?
