The Whakatane Tournament

I mentioned that I was in Whakatane last weekend for a tournament.  I also mentioned that it rained on the Saturday.  Well the Sunday was glorious.  The tournament was one of the best run I've been to and considering the appalling conditions on Saturday the Manager did exceptionally well to get all the games played.  The hospitality and catering by the Club's members was also very good.  We were welcomed and on the evening before the tournament made very welcome for a practice to see what the lawns were like.  We have decided that we will be back - and not just to defend the titles we won!
