Hi All,

Back to normal now - the Commonwealth Games have finished !

Numbers were down a little this week - only 66 - but this may be due to the Anzac Day break on Wednesday

It was a perfect night for our latest time trial.

In perfect conditions we saw, for the first time, three females inside the magical 7 Minute barrier. Emilie Guy - 6.52, Anna Kentwell - 6.57 & Erika Florez - 6.58.

Fastest of the males was Matt Heislers - 6.45, just ahead of Joel Samsu - 6.48.

Incredibly there were 18 new ‘PB’s’ set - a record for one night I reckon. Our next time trial will be in 6-8 weeks time - so around 12th June

Hi All,

After last week’s huge turn out (89) - who’d have thought we’d better the numbers this week ?

But we did - with a great attendance last night of 93, with 12 more new members joining the 19 new members from last week. Sadly a number of last week’s new members didn’t make it this week - but we do hope they’ll return very soon.

Great to see a few back with us after breaks - including Samara Cua, Emily Hamilton, Emilie Guy, Dominique Gordon, Daniel Richardson & Emily Eastman

Thanks to Len & Chris for looking after things for me last week.

This week we did the session on the Lake Hill Circuit in perfect conditions
