Our big event is this Sunday, so it’s ‘all members on deck’ this weekend. We don’t have the meeting room at the ASB booked this Sunday, so instead of turning up there, you can turn up at Westpac Stadium to help out! Sooooo, if you haven’t registered to volunteer (and therefore haven’t had an email from Mike), but have some time available, then turn up at Armstrong Motors, Barker St (off Cambridge Tce) on Friday or Saturday, or at the Information Office at Westpac Stadium on Sunday – I’m sure there’ll be plenty for you to do – bring warm clothing in case you’re needed outside.
Race Pack Stuffing went well last Sunday. With a pizza break at about 3500 packs, the final 1500 went really quickly. Thanks to all of you who helped out, and I hope you enjoyed running and walking from a different point for a change.
If you are participating in one of the events on Sunday, good luck, fingers crossed for the weather and don’t forget the CQ Hotel (who are the host hotel for our event) are putting on a pre-event pasta party on Friday 20th June, 6pm to 8pm as a lead up to the event. This includes a selection of pasta and salads with inspirational guest speakers including: Greig Rightford, Personal Trainer of the year in 2013 and owner of Healthfit Collective; Lisa Tamiti, Ultra runner; and Melissa Moon, Mountain runner – all for a great price of $25. They are located at 212-223 Cuba St, Wellington City and you can call them on 04 385 2153 to book yourselves in.
Peter Shackleton: Rob asked us to put up our own tribute page for Peter, as one of our founders, and if you click on Peter’s name, you can read what has been added and/or add your own memory.
