  Great start to the 2016 winter season at Caversham today and a huge turnout of current and new members. Just goes to show how much we need those new club rooms that are about to be built. It was standing room only in our outdated club space today. Encourage our new runners and walkers, and help fuel the enthusiasm that led them to our club in the first place. We have a terrific season ahead of us. Make your mark! Club Captain Stu McCormack

One of the " must do " was to give the " Cavy Bridge " an official opening, by who else than a " Cavy Pack " of runners.

The 4 Cavy kids (Katie, Alika, Ollie and Caitlin) who represented Otago at the 12-13 Inter-provincials this week-end. They are very grateful for the support from the Club. Thanks.

" President of Children's Athletics shook my hand after we finished helping with the high jump and said "Thanks. Caversham, always reliable" (I wore my black Caversham Harriers top). In the last two days we had Evelyn (Chief HJ1) with Donna Rutherford and Megan Hall (Hill City Grade 13 Emily's Mum); me and Cathy Isaac-Croot helped Andrew Taberner from Southland on HJ2, Jill O'Brien on catering and the hardest worker of all, my son Matthew on the yellow running team - you'd be surprised how much more useful/knowledgeable a scout/venturer is than the average teenage athlete when it comes to practical tasks like putting up and taking down gazebos " Gordon Wong

                                   Matthew Team Runner

" Hear hear Gordon Wong, Matthew deserves the chocolate fish, although Alika pointed out that the high jump pole was taller than her mum. And don't forget Photographer to the Stars - on behalf of two sets of overseas grandparents Gillian Wong, you do take a cracking photo, and ever generous taking other people's kids " Jill O'Brien

     Alika 400m (2) Katie 5th 80m Hurdles (2)                   Ollie 80m Hurdles (2) Caitlin 400m (2)

" Yes a great big thank you to Gillian - we all love the photos - especially when we're working and missing our kids in action!! And it's true that the bar was certainly over my head alot over the weekend - and of course the higher it got, the more we had to bend down and pick it up - tee hee. With the paparazzi there it was a workout for the stars -  lol. An enjoyable weekend ". Cathy Isaac-Croot

Congratulations to Alex Brown who's solo walk in the Under 16 Boys 3000m was fast enough to break the Otago Secondary Schools record at the Otago Secondary Schools Champs on Saturday. 17minutes 58.65 seconds : Reporter Gordon Wong.

Last Saturday Club Members travelled to Macandrew Bay for a farewell Run and Walk for Audrey Phelan who is shortly returning to live in Ireland. Both Running and Walking Sections were well represented and all enjoyed the outing up the Greenacres Track past Larnachs Castle and back via McTaggart Street. This was followed by Afternoon Tea and presentations made at Audreys home in Wharfdale Street.Audrey has made any number of friends during her time with Caversham and will certainly be kept well informed of club activities and news in the future.
