Great to see a couple of ‘old faces’ last night (Tuesday 16th) – Barb Paldus & Kristen Johansen – who paid us a visit. But if they’re back next week - which is a possibility – no special mentions on that occasion !

And – the photos I took at last night’s session are already up on our website – – have a look (follow the ‘gallery’ link) – thanks again Leanne.

Congratulations to Nick Boustead on his great effort in the Shepparton Half Iron Man last weekend – details also on the website

Quite a number of our members have returned to their country, interstate, & overseas homes recently, & others are travelling during the long break  – so we won’t be seeing them till the new Year – Mikhail B, Jingci L, Johnny C, Rohan N, David D, Elliot E, Laurence E, Mark C, Sean L, to name just a few.


We will be in action as usual on Tuesday evening next week, 23rd November, and as usual we'll meet at 6.00pm for a 6.05pm sharp start -  Regardless of the Weather !

·          And we’re still located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & parking is very handy - enter from  Ring Road East & go around to the Baseball field along the road  around the back (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1. The pavilion has good toilet, shower (if needed), changing, & kitchen facilities. 


·         If you ever have any trouble locating us just ask the staff at the Information Desk in the Sports Building – they are extremely helpful.


·         Some of you have asked about our sessions over the next few months – we WILL be in action every Tuesday evening without fail – with just one exception – the Tuesday between Christmas & New Year – Tuesday 28th December. So we’ll be back in action in the New Year on Tuesday January 4th January – same place, same time.

Our session this week

Great turnout of 42 this week – as many are still tied up with exams etc this was a great attendance

And it was a nice evening

Last night, after the usual 15 Minutes warm up – we did a Mona Fartlek session again – tough, but most beneficial, followed of course by the usual warm down – and a few ‘run throughs’ for some, to finish off. Apologies for my occasional lapses in concentration which can results in some longer intervals (I think our last 15 second effort last night took at least 25 sec).


Christmas Celebration 21st December 2010

Our Christmas celebration will be held on Tuesday evening 21st December – after training – so at around 7pm. It’ll just be a BBQ – with salad etc. Cost to each will $5.

Your $5 can be paid on any coming Tuesday evening ( cash) to Chris or Dan. A few of us have coughed up our $5 already.

One new member last night – Jerome Rowcroft – welcome.

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

Our  Hill session WILL go ahead this coming Saturday morning (20th November) - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there for sure. I know some are competing in the afternoon – but if not I hope to see you in the morning on Saturday

We’ll meet as usual  at 8.30am SHARP out the front of the cafe – ‘Madelines”. Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.
