Wet start to Rep Programme
03 Oct 2016
There was rain and more rain on Sunday as all Representative fixtures were eventually called off.
The Open fixture against North Harbour was cancelled on Saturday afternoon by our hosts with the greens at Birkenhead deemed too wet for play.
The remaining 1-8 year and 1-5 Year sides jumped on the bus at 6.30am in anticipation of getting some play up at Mangawhai and Waipu. The 1-8 Year and 1-5 Year Women at least managed one full round at Waipu. Both sides got off to a great start and sit at the top of the leaderboard. Unfortunately that was it for the day with the rain arriving and play being called off for the day.
The situation at Mangawhai was worse with just a handful of ends played in the first game before play was called off for the day.
All sides will be back in action in December by which time we hope the weather will have improved!
