E News 19 March 2014

Hi All,

This weekend we are again heading to Lake Alexander for the second of the events making up our annual Sprint Series. 

Entries to date show it will be popular which supports the feedback from our member survey last year that the majority of you wanted to do sprint distance events.

By now you will be aware that entry closes midday Friday.  If you haven’t yet done so, get your entry in now so you don’t forget.

As there was at least one mad dash home made before Race #1 to retrieve a forgotten chip, this is a reminder to not leave the house without yours on race day.

See you all at Lake Alex on Sunday!
