Saturday 31st January 2016
Much could be said about the shifting of the Port Road Race from the traditional Winter Harrier season to summer , time will tell if it has been successful, or not. On the day Caversham was to provide over half of the field and then totally dominate the event.
John Stinson reports
Congratulations to Jonah Smith on taking out the 12K Port Road Race held for the first time at the end of January in association with the Masters Games 10K Walk. Jonah has enjoyed considerable success in recent months including taking out the Otago Championship 10,000 metres title prior to Christmas. Jonahs win on Sunday was hard fought finally prevailing in a sprint finish down Butts Road with arch rival Jason Palmer.

Our "Cavy Kids" continue to shine at the Caledonian each Saturday morning. So great to see them giving their all and at the same time really enjoying themselves, a real credit to the club. Here is some of the action captured by Gillian Wong.
The clubs Annual General Meeting saw a number of new appointments to the Club Committee. Highlight of the evening was the awarding of Life Membership to Colin Dick and Brian Watkins. Hard working Ann Watkins was also recognised for her wonderful "social skills", including "cake baking". It was only fitting that the club was able to create "star status" of "Cavy Camp Mother".
