Saturday November 11th

12 summer walkers carpooled to Portobello and then walked to the Pyramids and overland to Victory Beach. Walked to tip of one of the Pyramids, visited the cave at the foot of the Pyramids. Once on the beach we saw three sealions.We were surprised at the amount of water ponding. Meanwhile action a plenty at the track. Report and Photos by Dave McWhinnie

 At the Caledonian Ground on Saturday 9th November a former club member Keith Dowland met up with Geoff Anderson. Keith and his twin Brother Ross were two of the best runners in the Caversham Club in the late 70s and early to mid 80s. They left Dunedin around 30 years ago for the USA and never returned to Dunedin except for family occasions and Holidays. Keith is based in Austin Texas while Ross is in Phoenix Arizona. Ross who is still a competitive age group runner is now completely retired while Keith works for about 4 Months of the Year. Ross is due to visit Dunedin again in April. It was good for our club competitors on Saturday to hear this American accent encouraging them along. I hope all our members will found this interesting.

Club Captain's Update Thursday 26th October

So very satisfying to observe the activity from our members as our summer season progresses, with a good showing from Cavy runners in last Friday's Ness Cup for starters. Well done to Hill City in taking out the first three placings (damn it!).
The Kelly's Canter race in Palmerston was won by Jake Jackson-Grammer (still lurking around town somewhere) with Jonah Smith in second place. Leon Miyahara was a very creditable 9th. Not bad going considering his young age.

Alex Brown continues to achieve with a gold in his 10k race walk.
Lots of Caversham people are taking advantage of Saturday mornings Parkrun to get in a little strenuous conditioning before breakfast, with Ben Rowley and Nathan Shanks first and second last weekend. 
Our Caversham Social runs and walks continue to attract good numbers (not last night though, only four of us hardy souls turned up to run in the rain). Keep your eye on our Facebook page for additional weekend runs/walks.

Peninsula Relay Saturday 5th August

Well! We got through a very windy and cold Peninsula Relay Cavy, and I feel so proud of the effort from not only our winning teams but every Cavy member who took part. Our senior men's team took out fastest time for 5 years in a row. Our Senior women's team gained second place. All our other teams ran their wee hearts out and we all had a terrific day. Well done guys . Very proud of our club spirit and sense of fun and fellowship. Kudos to David Sharp who endured the windiest run of all of us.
Andrew Glennie has some explaining to do to Athletics Otago when the wind caught his teams race numbers and blew them into the bay!

  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.

Katie Alika Ollie And Caitlin (2)

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.



 New Zealand Masters Track and Field Championship  

Club members were still out in force at the New Zealand Masters Track and Field Championships and were well rewarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze across all Track and field events, a mighty effort well rewarded.
