2018 Christmas Handicap
Once again we ran our version of the Stawell Gift, the MLAC Christmas Handicap. This year's Junior Handicap final was sponsored by Inflatable Land Mornington, and the Senior Handicap was sponsored by Gravity Zone. Thanks for all those who helped behind the scenes and on the day to make this another great event for the kids.
The morning started with the heats followed by a treasure hunt - well done to those who won Rebel Sport vouchers! Our Multi Event winners from 2 weeks ago were presented with their trophies, and we then had a visit from Santa courtesy of the Mt Martha CFA. Thank you to our local fireys for bringing Santa along today on your fire truck.
Then it was on to the semis, another treasure hunt and the raffle draw. We made nearly $560 on the raffle this year, so thank you to all those who bought (and sold) raffle tickets. Congrats to our winners: Austin Batten, Imogen Baker, Sue Cook and Mark Jenkins. Our prizes were purchased with credit we receive from your purchases at Rebel Sport - thank you Rebel for helping us out!!
Finally on to the main event - the handicap finals! The Inflatable Land
Junior Handicap was won by Amelia Carroll, and the Gravity Zone Senior Handicap was won by Madalyne Mundy. Maddy, enjoy having the Perpetual Trophy at your house for the next year! It's hard work to make a handicap final, so well done to all those who ran in our 2 finals today. Some of our athletes never make a final over all the years they are at our club, so it's a great achievement.
Good luck to our athletes competing at next week's State Relay Championships. We are back after New Year's on January 5th with our Twilight Meet with Frankston LAC at Ballam Park.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our members and their families. Looking forward to seeing you all for the second half of our season next year!
