Club news


It’s not long now til the LBG carnival,  this year  the event will be held at Stromlo Park, entry forms are up on the club website and also attached to this email.  Entries close on the 20 May.


In the coming weeks the committee  will be asking for volunteers to assist on the day, without your support we are unable to run this event.


This year we have made several  changes to assist in easing the workload such as electronic timing, change of venue and more toilets.  A list of volunteer positions will be send out soon and I thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide the club.


Congratulations to Robin Whyte who was awarded Male Masters Athlete of the Year at the North Canberra Gungahlin Awards night last night.


Remember if you have any news to share or know of someone who has achieved something special big or small, please email me,  the feedback on club news has been very positive from everyone in the club.


I wont’ be there on Saturday as I need help cheer on the Swans to hopefully their first win of the season.  Happy walking everyone!
