Robyn's E News 22 April 2013

Hi All,

Our Kerran Mudgway Memorial Club Championships continues to grow and is well supported by our members and their families & judging by the comments on our  Facebook page, enjoyed by all.

Being 80 odd kilometres down the track the event takes much organising and our Race Director Shaye Hatty did a brilliant job rallying all our wonderful volunteers to ensure competitors had a great race experience.

Shaye was ably assisted by 2IC Phill & 3IC Jack and a great band of people who all chipped in to set swim courses, man drink stops, turnaround points, marshall, time keep, provide post-race refreshments, cover technical official duties and a zillion other things.  There are too many to name (for fear of inadvertently overlooking someone) but we are very grateful for their contribution on Saturday.

We can now look forward to recovering and having some fun at our annual teams event this Sunday.  If you haven’t done this before, grab a couple of fellow team members, think up a theme if you want and come on down on Sunday for some tri-ing with a difference.

1.  Our sincere condolences to Margaret Hatty & Phill Hatty on the loss of their husband & step dad Robert (Bob) Smith.  Bob and Margaret have been smiling faces and willing volunteers at many of our events.  RIP Bob.

2.  We wish Dee Walsh a speedy recovery.  Dee is a new member and was to compete at Lake Bennett.  Unfortunately she suffered a broken leg in a fall from her bike last week.  Now a candidate for our Broken Spoke Award.

3.  It was great to hear the satisfaction & excitement in the voices of some first time finishers at Lake B on Saturday.  It has given many the confidence to step up the distance and have a go at the NT Olympic Distance next month.

4.  In an amazing show of sportsmanship, our new club champion Tim Green waited for 2nd placed Brett Verity who had accidently collided with one of the drink station kids during their final laps of the run. As this all happened behind him Tim would have been forgiven had he continued but instead his instinct on hearing the noise, was to stop and wait in case he could help.

5. Team themes – we have had some great ones in the past.  It’s encouraged but optional.  Want to be in a team or need an extra in yours?  Post a message on our Facebook page and don’t forget to LIKE us while you are there.

7.  Current members – your membership is not due until 30 June 2013.
