A Success

A Success

So much for the attaining of hon ours. From the recreational and nodal viewpoints the season can be said to have been an outstanding success. The runs covered the usual variety of courses for as far north as Paekakariki and Silverstream, including practically all the available land around the city and the favourite endurance test to Pencarrow. The consistently good attendances proved that all these runs were extremely popular. At several runs we were pleased to see some of our former prominent members and it is gratifying to see thorn still taking a keen interest in our activities.

Perhaps in no other sport can the social side be weldod so closely and so successfully with the active sporting side as in harriors where invitation runs assist so much in promoting the true club spirit. This year as usual a band of good friends rallied round and showed warm hospitality in entertaining us with very accept able afternoon teas. After a run for an hour or so outdoors on a wintry day nothing is more welcome than a cup of tea in homely surroundings. We wish to sincerely thank all these people for their generosity and assure them that the club could not hope to function successfully without them. Our coach, Mr. G. C. Sherwood, is also deserving of praise and gratitude, not only for giving us two invitation runs, but for unstintingly sacrificing his time and energy as coach and adviser to the club.
