Kia ora and welcome,

Well here we are, past the shortest day and heading for summer… haha if only.

My opening note this month is thank all those members that have passed on their kind wishes

to me following my reappointment, (un-opposed) to the role of President of this club.

We have an extremely testing year ahead and after a re-charge of my own batteries I will be

up for the challenges that lie in waiting.

Our club’s AGM has been recently completed and I would like to extend a special thanks to the

72 odd members whom attended, listened and contributed to our annual warrant of fitness

check up.

Our general managers report was well presented and very informative, reviewing the last 12

months performance of the club followed by him sharing a view and vision on what and how

the next 12 months will look like. This report was very well received by all those in attendance

and provided clear insights as to the challenges that we have to face head on.

Personal presentations were made firstly to Grace Kelly for her contribution to the club. In the

first instance as being employed as our raffle convenor for 17 odd years, but equally as importantly

for her voluntary work at Wednesday lunches and also her contribution to the Tuesday

evening promotions. Thank you Grace for dedication and commitment to our club, and we

look forward to seeing you relaxing around the club in the near future .

Secondly, acknowledgment was given to our award winning gardener, Micheal Marquet who

is moving onto greener pastures (tending to the beautiful gardens at the local crematorium on

Linwood Ave). We have been treated to many stunningly bright and colourful displays over the

years, which have really put the Woolston Club on the map for gardening excellence.

We wish both Grace and Michael well in their future endeavours.

Following the AGM the annual club elections were held, with the only voting requirement being

for the 4 vacated board positions.

Congratulations to those who have returned to the board, Colin, Donna, Leigh and a very

warm welcome to our newest board member, Gary.

I am sorry to lose Neil but wish to thank him for his positive contribution to the club during

his short term whilst on the board.

Thank you to Suzanne Talbot, Lindsay Clement and Stephen Ross for taking on the role as

elected members of the Judicial panel and to Doug Finnie, Tony Rhodes, Fred Wilmott ,

Trevor Allan, and Colin Sweeney for completing the compliment of 5 for our Appeal

board.

A special thanks to our scrutineers, led by Bryn McCaw, for working tirelessly all Saturday

afternoon following the AGM. Your time given so freely is very much appreciated.

In finishing, I would like to acknowledge, and personally thank the partners of all the folk

that I have mentioned above for their patience , but more importantly, support they

have provided which has allowed them to give of their time so willingly to our great

club!

Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar and Warmachine/Hordes

were in full

swing for this annual tournament,

with an array of well

painted armies on show.

We settle into the winter

months now, looking ahead to

DonkeyCon in early August. As

the name suggests, that weekend

revolves around taking a

fairly light-hearted approach to

the games on show.

In the meantime, our regular

club nights and days will keep us

busy.

Zane.

WARGAMERS SECTION:

What a month of gaming!

June saw the wargaming section make the

news for all the right reasons, as our D-Day

75 th Anniversary event was a roaring success.

In Top West two massive, weekendlong

games detailing the Normandy landings

in June 1944 were played out next to displays

of WW2 uniforms, weapons and memorabilia.

One News came along to interview

the tireless Tony Ormandy, who along with

Andy Tucker has our thanks for organising

the whole thing from start to finish.

Meanwhile, downstairs in Kellaway we had

around 50 players involved in CavCon.


GARDEN SECTION:

July has the coldest weather of the year with air and soil temperatures at their

lowest. Frost strikes many gardens. Remember to put frost cloth over tender plants

that don’t like frost i.e. Lemon tree.

Wednesday the 19 th we had our AGM and prize giving.

FISHING SECTION:

Queens Birthday weekend saw a hardy bunch of keen anglers head down to

Otematata to take part in a 4 way challenge against Papanui, Canty Anglers and

Ferrymead clubs. Suitably prepared for some seriously cold weather, we launched

the boats early Saturday morning with the air temp at -2C and the water temp

around 7*C ..

Catching fish was easier than trying to keep, and stay warm. But some of us

managed to get fish on board, so the day was deemed successful. Day 2 saw us

change lakes due to a power boat race and here, some did better than others...

Moreso that when you've been on the main body of water for about 60secs , you

cast your line and whack, there's a fish on, here's us all thinking what a great day this

could turn out to be... yep so much for that line of thinking!

The writer caught 2 but put 1 back, the boat skipper caught 1 all weekend, but had a

bit of fun travelling all over the lake. Never mind, on to the presentations that night

where Woolston scooped most of the main prizes. We may be small in numbers but

we are very effective at results time it seems. Neil won the main trophy, Karen won

the Ladies trophy and Arjay won the Juniors.. It’s a quiet time for us now as we

prepare ourselves for next season, boats in for servicing and new gear to be

purchased where necessary or in some cases.. "just because I might need it some

day". So winter well and stay warm and bug free.


FOOTBALL SECTION:

The Football section CTFC are just over half way through the season now. There has

been some wonderful success and some defeats players may rather forget throughout

our 13 Senior teams. Our Men's 1st team secured the MPL title, losing only one

game at the beginning of the 2 round, 8 team league. They now take to the roads

in the Southern League which brings together clubs from Nelson to Dunedin. The

first game against Otago Uni at the Caledonian in Dunedin saw a challenging game,

our boys coming away 3-0 up with 2 late goals. In the national knock out cup, the

Chatham Cup, we hosted Coastal Spirit and CHC United at Garrick Park. Both games

were hard fought to penalties. CHC United becoming victors of the round 3 match

so our Chatham Cup run came to an end.

Our Women's first team took on local rivals Coastal Spirit on Saturday 29th June in a

top of the table clash at Garrick Park, the football gods favoured on the Coastal side

and our girls are sitting in second place on the 5 team table with a game in hand

and 5 points behind.

Our reserve men sit in second place just one point behind league leaders Western,

they will be determined to play hard to win back top spot as the season plays

out. While our reserve women (CWCL) are also in second place. The top 3 share

points, but goal difference separates them, hopefully they can continue to play well

and see how the league finishes up.

We would like to congratulate our Canaries who gained a mid season promotion

from Div 5 to Div 4, they have yet to find some points in Div 4, 2 games in, but they

have been closely fought games. Also our 45+ Pele's Children won the league

there. Both our 45+ teams secured places in pool A for the Championship to end

the season. We wish them both well.

We look forward to seeing how the season pans out for all our teams, we have really

been enjoying our after-matches in the community room and really appreciate

being able to create a home environment with a few bits of memorablilia up on the

walls.
