Race Report – 24th December 2016

Great morning for our annual Joe Kelly Memorial race, 17 teams lined up to compete.  Prior to the start we reflected on the reason for this race and how lucky we all are to be here and competing.

The swim was very competitive with a couple of the speedsters doing two extra laps for good measure. Every child/adult player were winners today and we thank you all for really tri-ing because we know thats what Joe Kelly would always do.

Thanks Kev for your instructions and loud voice to get all the “kids” in line, chaos would reign supreme otherwise.

Well done Wazza, Vicky and Steve for organizing and cooking breakfast.

On behalf of Wendy and the committee have a wonderful Christmas and stay safe.  See you next Saturday.

 

 

Race Report – 10th December 2016

Congratulations Jo Ward – 100 Races completed.  Awesome effort from Jo, keep on tri-ing.

Happy birthday to Marg, Val, Gerrard and special birthday wishes for Rob Gillies 70th.

Great to see the Klein family racing together.  Apparently Codie has a whole new respect for cyclist now….not sure why!!!!

Mitch Stein raced as well and is hoping to bring the whole family to race, great to see you again Mitch.

Even though some thought it was great eye candy – Mankini tri suits do not conform to Triathlon rules.  Thanks for the view boys.

Thank you Rob, Furgo and Ian for marshaling this week.  Doug will call next week’s marshalls.

Random Draw winners this week: Clive, Zoe, Ben, Terry and Ginny.

All on the committee would like to invite anyone who is interested in joining and helping the club in the new season to come forward and chat to us.  Thanks to Kent and Holly who have shown interest.  It will be great to have new people on board.  Also if you feel you could be President please let us know.  Wendy is retiring due to huge work commitment.

The uniforms will be available next week.

Special thank you to Vicki Laws and Jenny Scaysbrook for organizing the Christmas lunch.  Fantastic job.
