E NEWS 23 MARCH 2016

We had an amazing turn out for the second of our Sprint Series which included a Come & Tri event.

Feedback has been extremely positive and we have welcomed a number of new members from the Come & Tri ranks and we hope to see more in the future.

A huge thank you to Michael Spry for stepping in to undertake the RD role when we put the call out.  Michael took the initiative and read the RD Guidelines on the website and said "I can do that" and got in touch.  He did a fantastic job with assistance from those on sign in Roster: Moira Wigley, Clare LabowitchHeath Porter (fruit/ice feedback - best fruit ever) and Phil, Dave, Cain and the water station superstars as well as the setup & back away crews who all volunteered on the day.  We thank you, we had lots of happy participants on the day!
