Robyn's E News 18 Nov 2013

Hi All,

Big weekend of tri starting with our Waterfront Splash N Dash on Friday evening and back again at the lagoon on Sunday morning for the juniors who also had an aquathlon format there.

The weather was muggy, but luckily we didn’t have any storms to contend with as has previously been the norm down at the Waterfront.

A huge thank you to RD Russell Peacock & all the other volunteers for their efforts on Friday.  The course was well marked & marshalled and everything looked very professional much to the delight of the spectators.

Same again yesterday morning, when junior coordinator Luke Hansen along with John Thyne and Belinda Rowley had the kids worn out but smiling at the end of their events.  A big thank you once again to all our fantastic volunteers.
