KSA Sports Briefs

Give gymnastics a go
Gymnastics Otamatea are again putting on the successful Give-It-A-Go class  in the month of March for families to try out gymnastics together. This is a low cost class with minimal commitment so busy families can have a taste of gymnastics with no further obligation. Classes are held at the KSA gymnasium on Mondays in March from 4–5pm, $5 for four classes. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult and pre-enrolment is essential.
Junior tennis coaching
Junior tennis is on Saturday mornings 9–10am at the Kaiwaka courts. Grant van Dalsum will coach the players on Mondays from 4.30–5.30pm. All primary or high school children are welcome. For information on tennis please phone Lindell Ferguson (evenings) on 431 2542.

Top of the Rock is tops!
With nearly 300 participants, our Top of the Rock multi-sport event was very successful! There will be a Top of the Rock debrief meeting on Thursday February 28, 7pm at the Sports Complex. Please come along with your thoughts on how the day went and your ideas on how we can improve things for next year. Just before the event, our water pump died and we also had problems with our chiller and ice machine – not what you need when hundreds of people are about to arrive. Many thanks to Bruce Ferguson who calmly sorted out these problems for us – thanks Bruce!
Quiz Night fundraiser
As a fundraiser for the Sports Association, we will hold a Quiz Night at the Complex on Friday March 15. Register your team of 4–6, supper provided and bar open. Prizes for the top three teams plus lots of spot prizes! $10 per head. Pre-registered teams only – ring me on 431 2051.
Bulbs fundraiser
Bulb planting time is just around the corner, so we are holding a Bulbs Fundraiser. Bulbs are easy to plant, fun to grow and will reward you with lovely flowers year after year! The bulbs on offer are tulips, daffodils, bluebells, freesias and wildflower seed mix. Bulbs are supplied by GardenPost who source the bulbs from New Zealand’s best growers and prices offered are less than normal retail price. You can pick up an order form from Jaques Four Square or the Sports Complex or download one from our website www.kaiwakasports.co.nz. Further details are on the form. For any enquiries on the bulbs fundraiser, please phone me on 431 2051.
