E News 26 July 17


We have had some much enjoyed cooler mornings and I've seen some of us (my hand is up) shivering in the shadows  but we know it won't last, so enjoy it while you can.

Our next event takes into consideration the time of year and is an afternoon event and there is no need to get wet!  Bonus.

The Duathlon Series kicks off this Sunday afternoon, followed by our usually quick AGM, a relaxed BBQ and we also have our annual awards presentation (with our refined speed version) happening as well as some lucky draws.   Hope to see you all there.
