ATHLETICS

THE NAPIER AMATEUR CLUB

LAST EVENING’S RESULTS

A LARGE ATTENDANCE.

In spite of cloudy weather there was a large attendance at McLean Park last evening, when the seventh meeting of the Napier Amateur Athletic and Cycling Club was held. The entries for the various events were large, the times being a little better than usual, although competitors were assisted somewhat by a following wind. The one-mile cycle race for primary school boys was not held owing to there being insufficient starters.

At an early date the club will install its new electric lighting system, which is now on its way from England. The installation will be the only one of its kind in Australasia and has been proved in England, America and on the Continent to be an outstanding success. When it has been put into use in Napier, the evening meetings will start later, so that enthusiasts will have more time to complete their evening meal before attending McLean Park.

The next club night is to be held, on Thursday January 4, next, when programmes will be available for the public, giving particulars of competitors in each event.

The following were the results of the various events last evening: –
