Robyn's E News 21 October 2013

Hi All,

Great to see so many turn out for yesterday’s sprint distance event at Lake Alexander.  I’m sure you will all agree that the transition & finish area looked a treat!

A big thank you to our RD team of Bec & Tim Ellison on their effort to put this event together for us to enjoy.  Thanks also to the many volunteers who assisted on the day.  We couldn’t go ahead without our members willingness to help out with RD, registration, water stops, timing, fruit/ice, marshalling etc together with all those who pitch in to assist with setting up and packing away.
