E News 11 November 2015


We had a great turnout of participants and lots of spectators on Saturday for our Waterfront event, the first of our annual Aquathlon Series.  It was pleasing to see the competitor numbers up on 2014.

A big thank you to our RD Roger Decurtins and our other superstar volunteers whose combined efforts made this event possible for our members.

Our juniors were also in action and enthusiastically participated over various distances. Thanks to Mel Lind and all who helped out with our younger members.

It was a top evening and a top venue!
