NSW Novice Cross Country Championship
Posted Saturday 30 Apr 2011 by Michael Gentle

The 2011 Novice Championship day would not be such a success without our Manager,
David Beck
, and the entire volunteer team, especially the construction crew who were there at dawn and still cleaning up at dusk. In some cases we had whole family groups working hard, with the BBQ, drinks, lollies, taking entries, selling raffle tickets, recording the results of races and helping at the finish area.

We thank Rockdale City Council for the trophies, Athletes Foot Hurstville for the gift vouchers, and Gordon Bucton's Butchery for the sausages.
