Robyn's E News - 8 June 09

Hi All,

I know, I know .... more comebacks than Philippoussis and all that.

Seems many of you were getting the jitters without your dose of E News for the last 8 weeks or so and my arm was getting pretty sore from all the twisting, not to mention bribe offers, flattery etc etc so E News is returning .... albeit when time permits.

During the break, communication with members has been revamped, so as well as E News, our President &/or Secretary are now able to communicate directly with you.

The Teams Event on Sunday was a hoot. We had a fantastic roll up, some great team costumes and lots of fun. A big thank you to Race Director Paul Bell and to all those many wonderful volunteers who assisted with the event.

The 2009/2010 Calendar is just about to hit the streets. A lot of thought & hours of work have been invested by your committee (the majority by President John Thyne and Mick Outhred - a big thank you to them) to bring you a bumper season of events & distances with lots of variety to suit all levels.

What we need now are lots of willing volunteers to fill the spaces for Race Directors, Timekeepers, Registration, Fruit/Ice etc at those events. If everyone does at least one roster position on the calendar the load will be lifted from those dedicated people who we see, week after week, putting in on your behalf.

Please make sure you respond to the call for volunteers when it is distributed shortly. Should any vacancies remain, member's names will be allocated, so get in early and pick something that suits.

Thanks to those who have already put their hand up & their name down.
