XCR19 Round 2 St Anne’s Winery

By Warren McVean

Well done to the ‘squad’ who landed at the winery Saturday arvo and toughed it out on the cold, slippery, twisty, hilly, undulating slopes (don’t know who designed it…….!)…. 😉
Results were down a little on round one, all looked like they were trying hard though and we will bounce back BIG at Bundoora, in a couple of weeks, im sure 🙂 👉

Great work by the Vollie’s again and all our fans who braved, the even shittier’ cold conditions this week……. Top job you guys. 👉

Run of the Day Awards: Jayne Grebinski Briggs in 30mins and her ‘swan-song’ with the club and Adronis Karabagega in 29mins, both top efforts guys for the 8k course…. 👉👉👉
Cake of the Day: Rosa Law lovely job R.L…… 👉
Debut of the Day: Daniel Clarke 31 mins, joining us from Sandy Bay, Tassie. He was right at home in the ‘conditions’ 👉

PS….. Good luck Jayne.G in Japan and we hope to see you back for a few Cameo’s in the future….You’ve been very consistent and a gun’ runner for SMAC….😀😀😀 Cheers Waza’

XCR19 Round 1 Jells Park XC Relays

By Warren McVean

JELLS PARK – ROUND ONE REVIEW….

Congratulations to all the new members who ran for SMAC, for the first time on Saturday. Having lots of new faces (and a few old ones like Judge Kincaid .!!!) around was great and conditions were pretty tough…. 
Good consistent running across the board in the Divisions, with nearly every team finishing 6th, we couldn’t have scripted that if we’d tried…… 
Well done to the volunteers and club fans in ‘shitty’ weather conditions, thanks for your efforts 😀😀
Also great to see some of the ‘debutants’, also then debut at the Wheelers Hotel afterwards to ‘rehydrate’…. Noteworthy here were the o60s team, who were best represented, with 100% participation….😀😀

Run of the Day ‘Awards’: Teleah Hayes and Mitch Waring
PB of the Day: Alok Kumar (done it again!!)
Rear Guard Action of the Day: Greg Payne (slugged it out)

Well done to all and see you at ROUND TWO 01.06.19.
