We had a huge day at Regional Relays on Saturday the 19th of November. We won 5 gold medals, 11 silver and 3 bronze. We were surrounded constantly by the sounds of the "bling cling". There were also many 4th and 5th placings. All our athletes conducted themselves beautifully - they are a credit to their parents and we are lucky to have them all associated with our club.
Thank yous must go out to the following people:
Mark Henry (SMR Competition Coordinator) for running a tight ship on the day and in the lead up to the event.
Trevor Quint (SMR Chief Starter) in his 2nd official event in this role did MLAC proud.
Todd Martin (Jury Convenor) - first time in this role, and had a tough day in a usually easy job.
Paul Davies (Team Manager) - always a very labour intensive job, well done.
Karen Bryce/Julie Burton/David Sutherland (Call Room) - long hours spent checking uniforms, thank you.
James Barrett (Training) - great job getting our athletes to relay readiness (with help from Mark Henry, Todd Martin and Lucy Duncan).
Mark O'Donnell for putting the teams together.
Mick Westworth for selling nearly $200 worth of raffle tickets in one day!!
To all our parents who completed general duties - the day would grind to a halt without your help.
To all the team managers who helped ensure their athletes made it to the call room, well done.
And to all our wonderful, smiling, happy MLAC athletes - you're the reason we were all there. You hopefully had a great day full of fun and fantastic memories.
