NZIFCR Update - North-South Weekend 2013
and Other Fixtures



Hamilton Match 12 December 2012



Arthur Pitcher organised a match at St Pauls between the local Planks side and some Hamiltonian Rotarians, most of whom were also affiliated to the Planks. It was a most enjoyable day, where your Chairman discovered a number of likely NZIFCR members underneath a variety of different caps. 


Arthur did not grace the field bue to a family emergency he had to attend in Christchurch. But Hamilton East Rotarian Tim Brooker captained the team and is now clearing his diary to become more involved in IFCR as well as being a bookselling fundraiser.


North-South Weekend 2013


We are now looking to arrange our 2013 North-South Weekend to take place in New Plymouth the weekend of 22-24 March, which is the weekend before Easter. The dates are still to be confirmed.

David Gibson from New Plymouth has kindly agreed to coordinate the weekend. We are looking to play the NZIFCR match on the Saturday, and to have a game against our visiting AuIFCR team, which is being coordinated again by Roy Powell from Armidale, on the Sunday. They will hopefully have a a match against a local veterans team on the Saturday, and are looking at flying into Auckland and then down to New Plymouth; and after that weekend then venturing to Southern Taranaki and Wanganui - Rangitikei - Manawatu - Wellington for some Rotary Fellowship and some more games.
