Well Xmas is just around the corner and I cant believe how quick this year has gone.
Well done to both Anna Toohey & Will Carter who competed at Aussie Titles finishing with great results. Well done from all of us at Windansea.
The Straddie Assault ran last month with the club finishing in 6th position, an awesome result from the team in very trying conditions on Saturday at Main Beach.
With 25kn-30knt onshore wind and rain, it made for a long day, Great team support shown from everyone. Eli hanging onto the marquee couldn’t prevent it from blowing over though.
You need to eat a few more meat pies at work mate, your too skinny.
