CLUB UPDATE – Yep we are on the home straight now and the Club is really coming together, with just the finishing touches to go. The biggest thing we’re missing is YOU, our wonderful members! Thanks everyone for the kind messages throughout this lock down phase. We really have appreciated it.

We are excited to be also announcing the Hunting & Fishing SNAPPER CLASSIC is all go! Usually we have this event in May, but as we all know, there has been nothing usual about this year! So with H&F and our sponsors keen, we are keen also. Book the date in – Sat/Sun 20-21st June, with briefing on the Friday. All going to plan we’ll be at Level One, so let’s go baby!

AS DETAILED LAST WEEK – “THE PLAN” The Club will be hosting an OPEN DAY from 11am on Saturday, 13th June. We look forward to welcoming back all of our members and can’t wait to see you all here, enjoying your Club. For a start (and as a trial) the Committee have proposed the bar opening days be from Thursday-Saturday. Outside of these times, members will be expected to be in the Club for the purpose of dining. The restaurant, Little Fish Cafe & Bistro, will therefore be open Tuesday-Sunday (with Sunday only being lunch service).

SUPER RUGBY KICK OFF NEXT SATURDAY – The Club opening coincides with the first game of INVESTEC SUPER RUGBY AOTEAROA with the Highlanders hosting the Chiefs. How good is that going to be! They will even have a crowd – yes, real people there!
