Greetings once again. Well the lure of sunshine and spring is starting to take effect as people attack their gardens and other things other than harriers. The lure of a bus trip to Naseby’s enchanted Black forest was not enough to fill the bus last Saturday.
Although one member did chase after the bus ,finally catching a ride at Omakau .I guess Peter will be on time at the bus stop in future.
The W3s took in Naseby’s streets and ventured down to the ice rink ,although I’m not sure if they had time for a game of curling or had a ride down the luge.
Most of the other groups took in some of the tracks through the forest with the slow runners coming across the original Naseby Curling club rooms , an old wooden shed built in the 1880s that’s still standing. Michael found out he’s getting a bit old for a jump at harriers , nearly making it across the water race before sliding back in. Ah well ,it was a warm day and dry by the time we got back to the bus. The faster runners had as easier time of it ,taking time to explore the old cemetery.
This week there will be no harriers due to Blossom festival. Just 3 more outings till the 2019 harrier season closes.
The following 2 outings will be to Cromwell and Roxburgh , both will leave a half hour earlier than in the syllabus ,
departing at 12:30pm.
Closing day will be Saturday 19 October ,walking or running from the Alex Bowling club at 11:00am .Park in the Ice rink car park for this one as there will be bowls going on. The Lions Club will be catering lunch at a cost of $25 per person. A list for the lunch will be at the next 2 outings.
Remember to pay the treasurer $25 per person into the club account before then and remember to put your name down as reference so he knows who has paid.
Look out for your reminder email message next week.
