This weekend, there may be some digger work being done around the course. But regardless, there will be matchesboth days.

With Covid interruptions a new revised club program is now available. A number of events have been cancelled due to the virus and the delays that have resulted from the lockdown.

The interclub matches have been a casualty of Covid but the club have approached Hokitika and agreed to have a home and away friendly interclub match play competition.

To have something to play for it has been decided to bring back an old trophy. Maybe the TEY Seddon.

There will be a list put up at the club house for any interested members. The good news is there is no limit on numbers and the first match is at Greymouth on the 28th of this month.

The other dates to be aware of is the 15/16th August which is the weekend for club champ qualifying.
