Phoenix Shield heads back to the Bay of Plenty Sun Club

It was a well fought challenge for the Phoenix Shield between the Bay of Plenty Sun Club and Waikato Outdoor Society over the weekend. Five members of Bay of Plenty Naturists (who didn't belong to BOPSC or WOS) also helped out the BOPSC team. The theme was retro (50s, 60s and 70s), and some games certainly took us back to our childhood schoolyards. 
There was hopscotch


skipping and 4 square, which were all much easier to do when we were young!

The standard petanque, croquet and golf were more conducive for some of us.

Car racing was a lot of fun for all, especially as we got to eat our lolly cars after the race. 

Remember the hula hoop - well the only ones who could wiggle their hips to do that were the young ones - and I mean really young ones (and one young Mum)!
After a hamburger dinner at Dave's Diner,  a night of nostalgia followed with LP records belting out music from the era. 
The outcome of the weekend was that BOP Sun Club won the shield back from WOS 9-6. So until next year when WOS will visit BOPSC for another challenge, the shield will remain in the Bay of Plenty.

Phoenix Shield this weekend

This weekend the Bay of Plenty Sun Club are heading over the hill to Waikato Outdoor Society for the annual Phoenix Shield challenge. This year, the theme is the '50s, '60s and '70s. Think retro games - I don't know what - maybe hula hoops, hop scotch, and other playground games. I am sure what ever is in store, everyone will have a fun time.
Dave's Diner will provide meals for dinner on Saturday night and it will be an 'I remember when...' evening. Book your meal with WOS on
The BOP Sun Club needs all the support we can muster so come along and help us retrieve the shield we lost last year. PLEASE!
