Hi all

Well we had a go at Plenty River with 6 teams entered – but a migraine (Jim) and a mind fade (Tom) – wiped out three teams results. But we did score a second and a third (I think – as the results have yet to be posted on the VOA site) so we should score 70 points or so.

  • Hope springs eternal this Sunday at “Butterfly Jim” when the second-last state series event (Rockhopper points to be scored) at Daylesford. This popular map was the Vic Middle Distance Champs last year – and this year BK has done a new cut of the area which has the lot – pine forest, eucalypt and goldmining. If we can get a good number of our juniors and new members along with the veterans, we should top the 100 points for the second time this year! So get online HERE and do your entry – or just show up on the day and hope they have extra pre-marked maps!
  • It is CAKE STALL so drop your creation off at the EU tent, have a run, and then come back and talk about how you “could have been” a champion!
  • There are several new EU caps left (cheap at $9) and two polar fleece jumpers (at $15) – so see the ladies at the Cake stall so you’ll look your EU best at the upcoming Bushranger Carnival.

We now have about 170 signed up for the Mid-Week Mayhem (in the afternoon) + the 140 School Boys and Girls (in the morning). Please sign up in the EUREKA team to run this Tuesday 29th September event with Blake at the Cake Stall. See you on Sunday.

Cheers

Blake
