Commonwealth Winter Games


Recommended Posts

:lol: Irony!!!...NZ Winter Games are buried in snow at the moment...Along with the rest of the South Island. It's not so much that NZ can host a larger Winter event, it's the mental capacity of our athletes that's the problem - they always do well at world champs but implode at the Olympics all stressed out...Fouth place doesn't cut it!

Yeah, I was surprised none of you Kiwis had posted any pics yet. I heard even Auckland's outskirts and Wellington got falls.

Jeez, less than a month till the RWC - be ironic if you had matches down south in the snow!

<_< Well...All those balmy weather teams will just have to harden up!!!! Especially those who have to play in Dunedin or Invercargill!

How are you holding out in New Zealand? i have seen images of the snow and I have to say that's more snow then we in Canada saw this past year :lol:

Meh! It's winter...Even Hamilton got a brief flurry! (It has never snowed in Hamilton)

NZ Winter Games opened today at Cardrona Ski Park, a good snow base to be had!! :D

I couldn't believe it, but the Mt (where I live) got a little bit of snow. Not much, but that's unheard of that far below the kaimais.

The Mt is supposed to look like this

Now THAT pic's interesting! Where'd you find it?

I notice the date says 1958??????

I've tried to research the CWWGs, and it's hard enough finding any mention much of the 1962 games. I've never seen any references to a 58 games ... I'm really intrigued now!

I searched Commonwealth Winter Games on google images and that popped up

Yeah, I tracked back the pic to a NZ antique site.

I'm just really intrigued now. As I said, tracking down any references to even the 1962 games, on the web at least, only throws up a few oblique references. I guess any original sources are too old to be online. I might have to take myself down to the State Library, or write to the CGF to see what I can find out.
