Andrew Frame Memorial Run Proceeds and Update

Hi all. Just before Christmas the committee made the decision to donate the proceeds of the “Andrew Scott Frame memorial run” to the “Ballina Lighthouse & Lismore Surf Life Saving Club”. I met with the president of the BLLSLSC, Mario Van Eck (Pictured) to make the donation. Mario was most grateful of the $900 which will be used to update and purchase essential life-saving equipment. These guys have agreed to help us out in the future when we need water safety ! Many thanks to all those who took part in helping to raise these funds.

Also, I have to apologise for the lack of results from Sundays Race. There is another issue with the Timing box which we are looking into. We are still hoping to be able to retrieve the results! Your patience and continued support is appreciated. Friday Swim-Run as usual this week. Hope to see you there.

Regards

John

Weekend Triathlon Update

Congratulations and well done to all Club members who raced this weekend at Ironman  Western Australia and Kingscliff Triathlon. A few club members were faced with extra challenges this year at Busselton when Shark sightings forced a swim cancellation, turning the event into a Duathlon. Then reportedly there was a bushfire and extreme heat to overcome on the 180 km bike leg. As usual our club members soldiered on and finished in the true spirit of Triathlon! Great job!!

At Kingscliff Tri there was a record turnout of BTC club members with about 20-30 competing across events. A few podiums taken out, PB’s broken and First time completion’s (Photos on Facebook soon!) where had by members. Well done BTC!!

In regard to results for Swim Run 6 on Friday, there was an issue with our timing this week and unfortunately times where not recorded so No results this week. (However, we know who raced and will award points accordingly to club members).  This will be rectified for this coming weeks swim run!

Lastly, just a reminder we have Triathlon Race 4 on this coming Sunday the 10th December. On-line entries are now open or come along and register on the morning for a fun hit out!

Cheers
