Twenty-five lined up at Baylys Beach to form five teams in a tag team contest where surfers had a specified time to catch waves before tagging the next member. Conditions were overcast and mild with smallish waves . But these brought out the best in competitors because it meant they had to be skilful to make the most of them, an organiser says. The Craig Osbaldiston Mem- orial trophy, in honour of a former local surfer, was won by the Blue team, comprising Chris and Matt Calder, Mitch Powell, Daryl Schick and Jay Suckling. Wave of the Day winner was Ian McCahon while Alex Calder took the Most Improved Gromett prize. Major sponsors of the contest included Rip Curl, Quicksilver and Roxy, Billabong and North Shore International. Golf day for hospital Good cause: Tournament organiser Bill Naish presents the cheque to Project Promise co-ordinator Jack Broome. A charity golf tourna- ment at Mangawhai Golf Club over Wai- tangi weekend raised $13,000 towards a stand-alone cancer treatment unit at Whangarei Hospital. A full field of 132 golfers enjoyed a great day s golf, and in doing so contributed to Proj- ect Promise, formed to raise more than $3 million for the new facility. Project co-ordinator Jack Broome thanked the golfers and busi- ness community for their generosity. He says Mangawhai has set the standard and challenged other golf clubs in Northland to accept the challenge and run tournaments, the funds from which will benefit all Northlanders. Prize winners on the day were: Women s: Liz Mc- leish 42 pts; r/up: Bridget Meredith 41. Mens division 1: Ron Horsfall 43 pts; r/up: Ray Mcintyre 43.

Photo: VIV TROUNSON The Kauri Stumpers only lost five wickets in catching the Karaka Stallions total of 144 runs in the golden oldies match played at Dargaville High School on February 12. Golden oldies caters for players aged 40 plus but both sides estimated their average age to be getting closer to 60. It was the Stumpers first win for the season, having previously gone down to Onehunga Maulers and Counties Crocks. They will meet the Crocks again before the season ends and are also hoping for a game against Sherwood Park Golf Club.
