Season highlight: The under-9 Sharks play on the hallowed turf of Eden Park. The Waiheke under-9 Sharks had a great sea- son. They got a lot of rugby under their belts, especially after the pro- motion from under-8s to under-9s. The weather was mostly on our side, but the team was often on the wrong side of win- ning. But the under-9 Sharks had great spirit and were able to hold their heads high with a season finale win at the hallowed grounds of Eden Park. We were very well sup- ported by parents and grandparents, siblings and friends, so a big shout out to all our sup- porters. Practices were well attended and great prog- ress was made especially in tackling and mauling. Special thanks to Ron Jackson who sponsored the boys tracksuits, they certainly love them, as players can be seen wearing them round the island during the week. The tracksuits inspired pride and helped create team cohesiveness, and they look very smart. As coach, I am very proud of our boys who worked well together over the season, learning new skills and quickly getting up to speed hav- ing to change from rippa rules to half-field rules with scrums and tackles. Thanks again to our fantastic manager Tim Callaghan who hasn t missed a beat all season. His organising skills are awesome. I am already looking forward to next season and hope the under-9s stick together for next year as we are building a strong, competitive side One of our dedicated parents, Rui s mum Sarah Farrant made an awesome video of our season.

The Waiheke Tennis Club started its summer season with a good turn out by members and a sprinkling of newcomers. Barbara Woods won top scorer, Loris Wysocki and Theresa Dashwood were runners up and John Miller, Ron Neil and Renzo Bennato all picked up prizes. The food was wonder- ful and the social time was helped by the wine and good humour. The social highlight was provided by Monica Miller s attempt to swal- low a large snapper eye. Monica, a former trail- blazing reality star from the United States, says: I have always starred in my own movies. I rein- vent myself in the next moment. At the tennis function she spontaneously decided to attempt to break her own record of the number of fish eyes she could consume in five minutes flat. All eyes were on Mon- ica. She had already pol- ished off 101 fish eyes but she desperately wanted to crack this threshold and was going for 102. The time was ticking by but Monica had not reckoned with the problem of swallow- ing such a large Hauraki Gulf snapper s eye. She got it in but out it came again as she gagged. She s determined to make another attempt. She says by swallowing fish eyes she increases her insight, especially regarding financial fore- casting. Monica is a good sport, true visionary and a wonderful ambassador for eyeing up the future. She and her husband, John, have a book out called The Coming Bank- ing Holiday with tips on how to catch the golden snapper.
