The new date for this event will be Sunday, April 10. The second round of the President's Cup saw Ainsley Hunter continue her good form to take honours with a nett 65. Sandra Pope came sec- ond on countback from Margaret Ives with a nett 72. Jane Parlane was nearest the pin on the 17th and Virginia Thompson had the only 2 of the day. The top eight from the week's match go through and qualify for the Burn's Cup on March 23. The inaugural Ocean Spray Classic will be played at Remuera on March 28. Waiheke will be rep- resented by Ainsley, Jane and Helen -- good luck for that event. Remuera hosted the midweek 18-hole mat- chplay competition this week. The Waiheke team dropped its second place, however, with a lot of games ahead, should be able to regain its pos- ition. Wednesday's start time will be 8.15am until daylight saving ends. New players are always welcome. Phone Helen Magee, club captain, on 372-2489 for more details. Last chance for juniors to register Hot on attack: Last year's Waiheke High School fifth grade team against Macleans College. Waiheke juniors who missed out on registering for the 2011 rugby season a week ago have another chance to sign up at a second regis- tration day at Onetangi Sports park this Saturday from 9am to 11am. Dozens of junior rugby players have already signed on for the new season in Rugby World Cup year, but there are still places in all teams, from under-6s to under- 12s. Waiheke Rugby will be fielding three men's teams this season, plus two or three high school sides and a full comple- ment of junior teams. We're delighted with the numbers of parents and players who braved the downpour a week ago to register for the biggest year ever in rugby,'' manager of the club's junior section, Hamish Cormack, says. But we've had a num- ber of calls from people who couldn't make it, so we're holding a second registration day this Saturday morning. People can also contact me on 372-4169 or 0210- 260-1500, or email h.cor firstname.lastname@example.org.'' Meanwhile, the Presi- dents' grade men's team (over 35 years of age) started the season with a game of touch, a barbe- cue and a few cold ones'' at OSP on Sunday. Club chairman Bruce Sciascia says: We've already got teams want- ing to play us pre-season, including our old friends from East Coast Bays, the Seniles and the Pon- sonby Legends. Anyone over 35 wanting to play social rugby should just turn up at Onetangi Sports Park at 12.30pm on Sunday, or they can contact me on 021-770- 425 or bsciascia@voda fone.co.nz.'' Already under way with training on Tuesdays and Thursdays at OSP at 6.30pm are the Aqua Water Under-85kg players. The champion Sea- Link Seniors side were busy last Saturday, playing in the South Auckland Premier club's pre-season tournament at Papatoetoe. Waiheke was the only outside team invited to compete, which is a testi- mony to the respect with which the SeaLink Seniors are held by the top-ranked teams. Although Waiheke narrowly lost all three games, they punched above their weight. Coach Ken Gloyer was very pleased with the SeaLink Seniors' early season form and is look- ing forward to Waiheke defending its Auckland Senior title. --- Vern Whitehead Former Ram signs on with Cowboys First grade league player: Former Waiheke Ram Dylan Smith. Waiheke-trained rugby league player Dylan Smith has been signed up by the North Queensland Cowboys and is now part of the club's first grade playing roster. The under-20s for- ward has signed a one- year deal after impressing coaching staff with his pre- season form and performances in trial matches. Twenty-year-old Smith made a great comeback after snap- ping his anterior cru- ciate ligament during last year's pre-season training. He managed to recover in time to fin- ish the season after six months on the sideline. Dad Shane Smith says Dylan is not his only son showing league promise, with younger son Brandon staying with Dylan while he plays for Townsville and tries out for North Queens- land.
