Hope you have had
or are still enjoying your long weekend!
Looking ahead, we have our Kerran
Mudgway Memorial Club C'ships taking place this weekend.
Given that it's "down the track" a bit and a Saturday arvo event,
we would like to encourage you all to get your entries in early (this
evening would be great) so that we can work out the various logistics of
getting enough gear down there.
We are also looking for a couple more volunteers, so if you can help out on
the day at the bike or run turnaround, or in transition, we would love to
hear from you.

bottles for the bike leg. There is a small koisk shop at the resort
with limited stock.

attend Reception and organise this individually.

1. We welcomed a number of new faces after the Kids Tri.
2. The juniors enjoyed doing a different style of event, riding and
running off road. They finished up with a fun running relay in and
out of the water. Then the temptation of Lake Alexander proved too
great, so everyone jumped in for a swim and a cool off.

able to come.
