1974 - The BCS Sports Day

Took place at the Niteroi Cricket Club on Saturday, August 3rd. It was attended by approximately 100 children and 50 adults, the attendance being far less than last year, despite the fact that many children were out from England on holiday. It was easier to get to Niteroi this year because of the bridge. Expenses incurred amounted to Cr$922,60 – these included flowers for Mrs. Pearce (wife of the president of the Club) red ribbon for the finishing line, safety pins, medals, 2 bottles of rum and 2 bottles of gin for the mothers’ and fathers’ races, both of which were 100 yards flat race.
