Mini-Olympics at BOP Sun Club

What a great night we had for our pot luck dinner and indoor games evening last weekend. Not only did we hold our own mini-Olympics, but we also watched Lisa Carrington, a local BOP canoeist from Ohope win the canoe sprint to give NZ its fifth gold medal at the Olympics.
We started with happy hour before one of our famous pot luck dinners. As usual, there was plenty of food and plenty of camaraderie. After dinner, we played sjoelen, darts and Wii games, including archery, 10-pin bowling and tennis. Who said that computer games weren’t strenuous! One member really got up a sweat playing tennis on the Wii. Some of the newer members tried their hand at sjoelen, with one beating the previous champion. The evening finished with a few members playing darts.

It was a great night of socialising on a golden night for the Bay of Plenty. As well, Sarah Walker from Kawerau, just down the road, won silver in the BMX a day before! It just goes to show that we are great sports in the Bay of Plenty.

Pot luck dinner and indoor games evening

Come along to the club this weekend (11-12 August) for our indoor games evening.
Starting with the mandatory Happy hour, and followed by a pot luck dinner, this is a great chance to get together with the other members of the club beside the roaring fire.
Then, try out some new games. An old game from Europe called sjoelen is a lot of fun. Then come into the modern era and try your hand at Wii sports such as 10 pin bowling, tennis and many more. Of course there will also be darts to complete the evenings entertainment.
On Sunday, it is time for the committee meeting at 10am so members are welcome to come along to that and see what the committee is doing on your behalf.
See you there!
