April Club Night

Collage Club Night April

Thank you Abigail, Amy, Andy, Emily, Ethan, Hugh, Jarrod, Jasmine, Jess L, Kurt, Maddi, Mason, Nicholas, Patrick C, Patrick D and Yaroslav for competing at this month’s Club Night.  Thank you also to Amanda, Grace and Sarah, Coach Neill and Coach Beth, and the many parents who helped out with time keeping, marshalling and starting.  It was great to see you all especially as it was school holidays and prior to the Anzac dawn service.

Once again, it was an exciting night with a number of brand new club night competitors.  Yaroslav brought in a cake in celebration of his birthday that was on the 13th (Thank you!) and Sarah’s birthday was on the night.  Happy Birthday!

The Relay event was once again a close race and favourite amongst the competitors and spectators.  The winning team was made up of Jess L, Amy, Jasmine, Patrick C and Jarrod. Well done!  It was a great night of competition and loads of fun. See you all again next month.

Thank you Bradley, Chelsea, Ethan, Hugh, Jake, Jarrod, Jasmine, Jess L, John, Kiara, Kurt, Nicholas, Patrick C, Patrick D, Sarah and Tessa for competing at last night’s Club Night.  Thank you also to Mason and the many parents who helped out with time keeping and Amanda who did an excellent job, even without the equipment.  The competition was exciting as usual with the Relay event being favourite amongst the competitors and spectators.  The winning team was made up of Patrick D, Jasmine, Jess L, Kurt and Patrick C. Well done!  There were 11 entries in the “Who Am I” competition.  It was very close with Jarrod winning 1st place correctly identifying 16 out of the 17 images.  Jess L also had 16 correct but came 2nd due to a later entry.  3rd was Jake with 14 correct.  Congratulations to everyone who had a go.  A great night of competition and fun.  See you all again next month.
