OSCA Chinese New Year Picnic 2011

Waitangi Day, 6 February 2011

By Gordon Wong

The OSCA Chinese New Year Picnic was held at Brighton Domain again this year on Waitangi Day.  After experiencing a scorching morning, Brighton was covered in low cloud – fortunately the conditions stayed mild for the duration of the picnic.

The socials subcommittee once again provided superb burger patties, bread and sausages, while the kids sub committee ran the ‘traditional’ games – gumboot throwing, egg catching, foot races and of course the tug of war!

The kids, young and not so young all had a great time.  Some of them even took a dip in the sea prior to lunch and activities.

Happy Chinese New Year of the Rabbit.
