2015 AUSSIES UPDATE
Well we have returned from North Kirra with some of the jewels on offer with Reece and Dan picking up GOLD in the Open double ski and Geordie and Fergus picking up BRONZE in the U19 double ski. Mike Cook bagged a SILVER (surf race) and BRONZE (ironman) – well done Cookie.
Overall the club performed exceptionally well, as you will see by the results shown below. The U19 females performed magnificently with the team of six that went across we were represented in something like 4 individual finals and 4 team finals! Ceris our only open female competitor flew the flag in the Open arena for us.
It was also a great experience for our youth competitors being their first Aussies, similarly with the under 17 competitors. They would have all learnt a great deal from the Aussies, running and more running across those banks.
As you can see there is a large contingent that made finals and almost as many would have made semi’s but too much to list here they will be recorded in the Annual Report.
Once again many thanks to all who helped out and made this a very successful touring team. With all our entries in (Bron) the sea container landed and repacked (Doug, Al ,Archie and Pete)our IRB crew did a great job (Steve, Justin, Rowan & Mark) all this would not have been possible without your help.
To all the team managers and assistant managers many thanks for your help over the carnival it could not have happened without you! This includes; Bron, Neil/Boots, Mark, Kate/Marianne and Lou/Jodi. Not forgetting our coaches who prepared our competitors all year! for this.
To all the officials who gave up their time for the championships thank you!
Thanks also to Ric Duncan who looked after our belt swimmers at the Aussies. Also to all who offered to be linesmen and reelmen for the races especially the ski boys who stayed behind in case they were needed. A true team spirit!
All in all it was a great championship with the entire touring team helping out when required which made things run that much smoother.
I will be sending out a survey in the next couple of weeks to gauge the tour teams feeling on how things went and any improvements which could be made. So please take the time to fill it out it can only benefit yourselves for future Aussies.
Planning for the 2016 is well on its way and the accommodation will be checked out by Gary this week and firmed up if considered suitable.
Rumours from the Aussies are that next year we will see the Masters competing on the Saturday/Sunday followed by the Youth and then the Open competition. So watch out for more details as they are released.
