E News 10 August 2016


Our duathlon on Saturday attracted a very good sized field of participants and the Knuckey Lagoon Reserve course was judged to be a real winner!

We also had our AGM (your new committee is listed below) and we followed up with a delicious free BBQ and we also presented our annual awards for season 2015 | 2016 (listed below).

A huge thank you to RDs Lisa Payne and Tony Cox, roster volunteers Rena Walker, Leanne Abel & Vicki Woodrow for  their contribution.  Thanks also to Mel Lind and family for organising the junior dash and overseeing the BBQ, Stu Fitch for his salad pick up service & delivery and to all those who just pitched in and helped including with the setting up and packing away.  Much appreciated.

Also appreciated was the support from our Awards Night sponsors - thank you again to Wicked NRG, Cycle Zone Darwin, Cannibal, Gallery 26 and AMart Sports!
