Cross Country is fun for all

With the summer season coming to an end you must be wondering what you are going to do with all that free time. Cross Country is a great way to keep fit in winter. A number of centres host the events so it’s a great way to have a family outing while also getting in a run.

Thanks for all your help!

Thanks to all that helped at Zones over the weekend. Without a combined team effort, events such as this would not be a success. Our awesome announcer Greg Clark made sure we were on schedule and often ahead of schedule. Catherine Zhoya among other duties carted water around in the hot conditions making sure all helpers were fuelled up. Thanks to Mark Shaw who also wore many hats and had the glamorous job of cleaning the toilets. Mark even made a nice profit for team Melville by selling eggs and buns in record time. The team in the canteen that worked tirelessly all weekend did a super job keeping everyone fed. Our super team that made sure certificates were available for the kids. Thanks all!
