Welcome back everyone and a happy new year!
Reminder that this Saturday is a twilight meet (starting at 4:45pm) and also includes the Pro Race. The Pro Race has received a large number of entries so expect the racing to be fast and fun. Josh Ross, 2 time Olympian will be hoping to continue his stellar pro racing form. However local boy Sasha Zhoya will not want to make it easy on his home turf and will take the running to Josh. A number of other Melville athletes who have bee training hard over the festive season will also be in the running and hoping to take home a share of the prize money.
Visit the WACL web site for the start lists and time table.
