Congratulations to Clark, Tara and the Puhoi Property INDEPTH Wolfpack team
on an outstanding performance and victory in the ASB Chatham Cup on Anzac
Day. It was great to see such a big contingent from the club at the game and
a big thank you to everybody who turned out to support the lads. It helped
create a great atmosphere. A 2-1 victory over a side 4 divisions above them
was something they should be proud of. The next round of the cup is on May
11th, and we are really hoping for a home draw which would ideally coincide
with the Puhoi pitch being reopened. Thank you again to all of you for the
great support. It was exciting to see a Puhoi side play with such flairand
passion. For those of you who missed it, there will be another opportunity
on May 11th!
The Puhoi Centennial Hall Quiz
This year, to celebrate the
Ses suequ sisque, erm, 150th, anniversary of Puhoi there will be a ‘Roots’ theme. Come dressed as something related to your, or someone else’s, ‘roots’, or some other loose interpretation of ‘rootiness’ and you can win a prize.
Once again there’ll be a range of questions ranging from cunning brain-teasers to the downright silly. So bring along a few beers and nibbles, and of course some gold coins for the raffle.
Tickets are a measly $10 per head, and tables can be up to six.
Reserving a table is recommended as we sold out quickly last year – drop us an email at email@example.com or phone Fran on 4220835

Notice any changes to our Central Business District riverbank? About 10 adults and some children got stuck in on Saturday morning and cleared the clumps of Arundo –Spanish Reed – and other pest weeds from below the Sports Club. The plan is to mulch the bare soil and plant with natives when the weather allows. Thanks to organisers Shelley Hackett and Rodney Straka and all who chopped in, not to mention Benjy the goat, who, it was proven by scientific testing, namely placing a branch beneath his nose, could be the weed disposal prototype of the future
