Robyn's E News 25 Nov 13

Hi All,

Cyclone warnings aside, do hope you are all enjoying this patch of cooler weather.  Great to see many of you out there training regardless.  Hearing a lot of you were successful in dodging the rain completely.  The BoM radar is a valuable training resource at this time of year!

Are you ready for it?  Our splash n dash action returns to the Waterfront – at the very social time of  6pm - on Saturday evening.  If you are staying on for a meal at one of the many restaurants or cafes, suggest making a booking would be a good idea. There is always the wharf close by as well.

Our junior tri gear order has been extended until midday today (see details below).
