What's up this week - 22 May

Vicky's viewpoint (Club Captain's report)


First up - is it ever going to stop raining!!!!! The planned roadie to Millwater was put on hold due to the bad weather - fortunately Haydn went and represented!! Not going up north did mean we could be there on Sunday where a small crew went out to tackle the haks and the river trail (some even did both) but the best thing was the chocolate brownie muffin at Breaking Bread! #Recommend

A HUGE well done to Phill on his awesome stair climbing at the weekend and raising lots of money. We enjoyed watching the live feed at the cafe - looked pretty hard work for most but at least Phill had the hakarimatas to train on so I am sure it made the tower seem easy - aye? You can still donate to the cause via Phills fundraiser page

We had a great session with Anna on Thursday - stretching muscles that don't often get much attention. I know my glutes could feel it straight away! We are collating feedback so have your say so we can start making it a regular thing - Link here

This week it's dinner night - Can you believe it's been a month already!?! Don't forget to bring your Hawaiian shirt and you still have time to have your say on the way we run dinner nights just click on the link:

See you on Thursday!

Dinner night - Thursday 25th May 7pm

After a bit of a jog or stroll it's into the food.

Remember to let us know by Tuesday evening if you're coming to the dinner and what side or dessert you're bringing along. Bring along some $$ for raffles and the $5 per head if you haven't paid online.


Kirikiriroa Marathon is on Saturday June 10, let Vicky know if you can help out. There are opportunities to Parkrun or run a leg of the replay and then still helpout, either at the HRR aid station at Ann street to one of the other 40ish jobs on the list. Any questions about the event, track down Andrew at Dinner night.
