Robyn's E News 10 December 2012

Hi All,

We have our fantastic Christmas Splash N Dash coming up on Saturday evening.  This has become a real club tradition and RD Rob Weatherald is sure to have some surprises in store. Come on down and join in … but don’t forget to save a little energy to team up with one our juniors for the Christmas relay. 

We encourage you all to don some tinsel, jingle bells, Santa hats etc for this one!!  I hear there will be lolly bags and other surprises for the juniors.

This is a great social event and an ideal time to catch up with fellow members prior to the silly season proper.

Seems everyone is flat strap including yours truly, so this will be the last E News in your Inbox for 2012.

I hope you have enjoyed E News again this year, I’ve certainly enjoyed bringing it to you!
