New Zealand Navy Te Mana: Crew from this frigate submitted a Netball Team under Waverleyâ€™s banner, lost all 5 games in division 1 however thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Trophy: Inaugural 2nd division was introduced onto this years programme, a huge success. I saw mokos (grandchildren) 14 year olds playing, whose grandmothers played in this same event in the early â€“mid eighties.
I donated the 2nd division trophy.
Volunteers: Thank you to my dedicated runners, and umpires whom I called several weeks pre event to assist me. Some games had 1 umpire however teams were very receptive regarding this issue. I bought party whistles from the $2 shop as spares for umpires â€“ had 2 left end of the day.
Congratulations to â€œTeam Taki Toaâ€ committee members, besides Beaver whom Iâ€™ve know for several decades, Sharron, Anita, Liana, Josh and Deon were all new to me. We encountered interesting obstacles to deal with however in saying that, those obstacles form the foundations of ensuring all aspects of a event is covered for a smooth day.
The kaupapa remains strong!! Kia Kaha!!

See you next year!!!
