Cavy Chat

Our "Cavy Chat" newsletter ... September edition out now!


This Saturday sees the closing day of the harrier season. Meet at the clubrooms at 1.30 pm and please bring something on a plate for afternoon tea. We will finish the season with a club run.  The track season begins on the same day and we are required to provide 3 helpers. Is anyone available to help out? Please let Dave Stinson or Stu McCormack know.

The social evening is next Saturday 18th October. The theme is 'Mad Hatters Tea Party' and will be a mystery bus tour followed by a meal and drinks. The club will pay for the bus. You pay for your meal and drinks. It's going to be a lot of fun.  Final numbers have to be in and booked this Tuesday. Put your name in the book at the club or contact Anne

Our president Colin Dick steps down in November. Thanks Colin for your fine stewardship of the club. We suspect you and Marlene will be somewhat relieved that you can spend more of your energies on fitting out that beautiful new house of yours.

And thanks to two people (among many)  who do a sterling job  within the club - the incredibly hard work that Alison Newall does behind the scenes as our entry steward and as a selector; and Akaroa simply wouldn't happen without Peter Blackwood's drive, energy and personal style. We doff our Cavy cap to both these fine club members. (And many thanks to Stu McCormack for his fine leadership and inspiration over the season - well done!) 

Thanks to all the people who supported the operation of our activities throughout the season, whether on committees or tea duties, pack leaders or marshals. Your help was essential to the smooth running of the club and was much appreciated.  One thing that members could consider for the future, is to become more involved in the running of your club. Not only do we need your help but there is a sense of personal satisfaction to be had from any role you might put your hand up for.

Club runs continue throughout the summer. Meet at the Cannington Road end of John McGlashan college. 5.45 pm Monday and Wednesdays.

As we look to commemorate Otago' s point of first involvement in World War One, it is fitting to remember the sacrifice made by club members of the time. There were about 40 who were called to duty and of that number - R L Aitken, A C Boys, H Gear, A Gray, D Gray, J Freeman, J Hewett, J McAhan, A White , D White and R White - made the ultimate sacrifice and didn't return from the battlefields.

Congratulations to Caversham Harriers and Walkers who produced wonderful results at the Edmond Cup Steeplechase races on Saturday 12 July - see here for results.  How long since a father and son combination have featured in the winning Men's team?  A very special result for Geoff and Ben Anderson.
