Saturday afternoon last was quite a ' gala ' day at the above popular resort, the occasion being that of the reopening of the skating rink and dancing hall, the holding of a couple of handicaps on the cinder track, and the skating race for the championship of Auckland. Everything went off as merrily as the proverbial marriage bell, to the thorough satisfaction of the large number of spectators present. The Athletic Club's light-weight tournament has been attracting large attendances, and the contests have proved close and interesting, the final bout, between Jennings and Twohey. being reserved for Friday evening next, when patrons may anticipate a ' real live go.'
