Hiss and a roar Hiss and a roar

Last weekend started with a hiss and a roar for the Kaiapoi Softball Club but they couldn’t maintain their momentum. On Friday night both the Kings and Queens played Halswell at Mizuno Ballpark, and both came away with close, but solid wins.

However, Saturday brought much tougher matches, and despite finding 7 runs, the Queens ...

Pegasus parkrun report #218 Pegasus parkrun report #218

With such a large number of parkrunners away at other events (most notably the Queenstown Marathon, Half & 10km) it was fantastic to see 72 finishers at Pegasus. 3 members of the Unknown family were among us today, I’d just like to say that when they register as parkrunners they can change ...
