Chooks News 3 May 2024

Chairpersons Update

Afternoon team, I hope everyone is getting excited about a full house at Tukapa this Saturday. It’s great to have all five of our teams at home and we welcome Clifton, Ōkaiawa and Coastal/Ōkaiawa Women to the Chook House. After some narrow loses last Saturday down in Stratford, we have full teams named for this week’s games.  The teams have been working hard and we will be trying for 4 out of 4 wins for our men’s teams, while our female team is battling sickness and ladies away but will be putting their best 15 out on the paddock with their own goals in mind. These ladies get better and better each week.
