Riverhead junior athletes sprinted, jumped and threw their hearts out for their biggest medal haul. The club sent 10 relay teams aged seven to 13 to the Auckland junior champion- ships at Mt Smart Stadium. Despite not getting any gold, Riverhead gained one silver and six bronze medals and six fourth placings. They reached 17 finals of the 18 relays. For the likes of the seven and eight-year-olds this might be the first time they have run on a proper track in front of a lot of people, so it can be quite daunting. But there were no dropped batons and the club and parents can be very proud of the kids and their efforts on a successful day, says club president Hattie de Vries. The season continues with several events. Elena Chet- land de Vries has been selec- ted for the Auckland team to face New South Wales in the annual Trans Tasman Chal- lenge in Sydney this month. James Hickson, Reuben Brown, Jack and Tara Doherty-Eagles will go to Hastings for the North Island Colgate Games. Club nights resume Febru- ary 9 at 5.30pm at the Riverhead Domain.

From left: Sandy March, Raewyn Thomas holding the winning ticket, Bill Spence and Paul Butler. Members of Helensville Dis- trict Golf Club flung their support behind their mega raffle. Brian Hickey, a member since 2002, won the first prize of a four-year member- ship. The draw was a huge suc- cess with thousands of dollars worth of prizes up for grabs. Club general manager Raewyn Thomas admits that at $25 a ticket they were not entirely sure of the outcome, but members bought more than 600 producing a net income of more than $11,000. We were thrilled with the result, she says. President Rick McLean says the club had been look- ing carefully at its image. I believe that the hard work of the staff, executive and marketing group is now being rewarded with excep- tional support of its members. Other prize winners were Brian Osborne, Shelley and Gordon Good, Desmond Anderson and Carol and Richard Thompson. IN BRIEF Mountainbiking Following a 2010 of highs and lows, the Auckland MTB Club is back this year with an enthusiastic 10-strong committee, a plethora of ideas and initiatives and a healthy number of new members. Feedback from the club's survey showed a need for more social and recreational riding. There are now club rides featuring the popular continuation of the Saturday events at Woodhill, monthly away rides and the new fortnightly Sunday rides at favourite Auckland venues like Hunua this Sunday, January 16.
