Robyn's E News 14 June 2011

Hi All,

The brrr factor is well and truly upon us and looks set to continue for a few more days yet.

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend, there is so much to see and do at the moment it's hard to fit it all in. Aside from the chilly start, the weather is brilliant for being out and about.

I know many of you are looking forward to heading out to Nightcliff Pool on Sunday. It's a long time since we have had a triathlon out there but it was once the site of tri action in Darwin and will make a very welcome change.
