Olympics Competition
A fun night was had last week as we celebrated the Olympics via five teams of Papanui Rotary members engaging in a variety of amended activities (golf, javelin, shot put & table tennis) plus a team quiz on Olympics facts.
Budding golf & table tennis players in action
The overall winner with a weighted average score of 54.6 was Team New Zealand (Lois, Liz, Donna, Charles & Verdi) with Team Canada (Kathie, Deryn, Heather, Gordon, Mark & Keith) coming in second at 50.7
Team Canada also took out the Quiz result with ten out of fourteen answers correct. Thanks to all competitors in what was a fun evening.
