Weekly Reminder – 4 January 2022

Welcome to year 2022 and hopefully we will all have a better year ahead than the last.

1. 1-5 Year Interclub
The draw and conditions of play have been distributed and the event takes place this coming weekend with section play on Saturday 8 January at Browns Bay and Sunnybrae. Finals on Sunday at Browns Bay.

2. BNH NZ Masters –
The draws are currently being finalised and the greens for section play will be finalised in the coming days. Once that is complete they will be posted on the website.

We do still have a bye in the 75+ Women’s fours and the 75+ Women’s pairs. If you can find a team to make the age group then please email [email protected] by the end of this week.

If there was a gentleman who would like to play in the 75+ mixed pairs there is a single vacancy available. If you are interested then contact the above email as well.

3. RSP Grants –
Clubs are reminded that a Government Transition Fund payment is available on application as a follow on from the RSP (Resurgence Support Payment). It is accessed through the same channel as the RSP and it uses the date of 3 October for application. This looks like it will be the last grant of this type, for this past lockdown period, so clubs should apply quickly if they have not already done so. If you need any assistance then our treasurer, Raewyn Thomas, is only too willing to help. Please contact Raewyn on 027 499 8697.
