E News 28 September 2016


Great to see such a good roll up for Super Sprint #2 at the weekend & we were excited to have equal numbers of male & female participants.  Pat on the back DTC, that's something few sports/clubs can announce.

It was also good news that we welcomed a number of new members to our event & were able to share in their enthusiasm for our sport. Well done all participants.

Our one armed RD Allan Barrett was back for the second time in as many weeks and again made sure all bases were covered for our event.  Thanks Allan!

Thanks also go to our rostered rego team of Kate Bell & Leana Watermeyer, Leanne Fidler for covering our post race refreshments and to everyone who just jumped in to help on the day.
