Photo’s from our recent Foxhunt

Saturday 10th June 2023 we are having a Mini Junk Sale and Car Boot sale at our clubrooms 65 Totara Road, Palmerston North.

The weekend after the NZART conference we will have our Mini Junk and Car Boot Sale, and
BBQ at the club rooms. The last few years were very successful, and the funds contributed
to the ongoing upgrade of our facilities.

Mini Junk Sale
We are accepting donations of equipment for sale at the Mini Junk Sale with all proceeds
going to the Club in support of club upgrades. If you have donations for the sale to be sold
for club funds, please ensure you put them down at the club by Sunday 4 th June for sorting if possible.

Car Boot Sale
If you want to sell your own equipment, we are offering a car boot sale option. It will cost
you $10 per “car boot” payable on the day to the Treasurer on the day. The sales area will
be in the car park beside the club room.

We will have a BBQ running – don’t eat breakfast – buy a sausage. Tea, coffee, and drinks
will also be available for sale.

Cash Only
This is a cash only event, please bring small change if possible.

Jock White Field Day 2023

Thanks for a fantastic weekend, despite the slightly moist start on Saturday, a very much enjoyable time.

Thanks to all the people that attended the weekend, helping with setup, pack up, operating, cooking, eating, security, socialising and support. It is definitely a team effort.

Every activity will always bring up what was good, and what could be better. While it’s still fresh in your mind, complete the below anonymous survey. Just a couple of questions about how you liked the weekend and ideas for the future. We already have a couple of idea’s brewing.
