November 29 and 30 saw the 18th year of Harcourts Classic Fours The rain stayed away and although the wind made conditions a bit tricky at times the tournament was played in fine weather.
Once again, we are indebted to Harcourts Cooper and Mairangi Bay and particularly Jo Mimmack and James Dixon for their ongoing support. The coffee and cone van was very well supported on both days and certainly much appreciated
Many thanks to Enid and Noelene for doing the charts on Wednesday and Irene and Noelene on Thursday. Thank you also to Gaye and Jo for organizing the nibbles for Thursday’s prize-giving, plus Joy Finney & Graeme McGregor who worked in the kitchen.
We had a field 26 teams made up 10 visiting teams, and the rest, were loyal Mairangi players. Martin Cooper was on hand to make a short presentation before Prize Giving where James did the honours of presenting the prizes.
