It was decided to ask i.he Aka-oi Boroutrh Council tn give the committee the*right to sell spaces for booths on tbe street.? and the-right to sell programmes. The hon stc reported that the concert committee had arrangements well in hand for the concert, and tbat a splendid programme had been arranged. At a meeting of the sports committee held later, it was decided to have the following programme : — Swimmir-g mntf—Grpa-y boom, PwirnmtDir mces between tbe okl and new wh'irf (1) for boys undec 16 ; ('2) under 21 years; (SVover '21. year?. Ir, was also decided to have two sbore events, (1) an iron quoit compe tition , (2) gr.easy poll competition. Tbe two shoi'D events will he bold on tbe Council's reserve on the north side of the old wharf shelter, where a good pitch for the quoits is obtain nble. The greasy poll will also bo erected on this reserve. The. old Aka roa Quoits Clnb have tbe quoits and rules, and will lend them to tbe Re gafcfca Committee for Regatta Day. A good deal of interest is being taken in tbe quoits match, as it was a popular game for many years, and used to bo played on the Britomart Reserve a few years ago before the re serve wa3 laid out. The grensy pole climb is a very old event, which, in the old days, was keenly contested at regattas, and it is. thought that tbe revival of some of these old events will create a great deal of interest among those who attend tbe regatia.
