Finally Findlay!

After competing for 19 seasons Grant Findlay finally snared the top prize this year.

At the Club's Presentation Night at Chaser's Function Room in the Lord's Raceway Complex Grant was announced as the winner of both the Flack Advisory Dick Kitt Final and the Rebel Sports Aggregate Award.

In his acceptance speech Grant thanked his wife and family for their support, his coach Phil Noden for his guidance, and said he felt he richly deserved his victory.

Other winners on the night included:

Club Champion: Michael Preece

Gary Hogan Trophy: Kevin Shanahan

Junior Presentation Day

On Sunday after the season-ending Junior Relay the Club held Junior Presentations at the clubrooms at the Tom Flood Sports Centre.

All participants received trophies and awards for their efforts during the year, as well as a bag of sport-related items provided at a discounted rate by Club sponsor Rebel Sport.

Olivia and Jaymin Boulton to Victory

The final event in the Junior season was the Central Test-sponsored Family Relay event with each runner completing a 1km leg before handing over to their team-mate.  The eventual winners were the fleet-footed brother and sister combination of Olivia and Jaymin Boulton who were having their last run with the Club before moving to Queensland.

Paul Pops Up

After finishing second in both of the last two events Paul Bennett started as the hot favourite in Sunday’s Rising Sun Hotel non-penalty race at No. 7 Reservoir.  The added pressure made no difference to the experienced physio however, and the popular Paul took the event with a comfortable 10 second victory margin.


Capping off an impressive first season Carol Stewart stormed into second place, relegating second-year runner Reza Azimi to third.  As well as third place Reza also ran third Fastest Time for the event behind the more experienced Adam Parker and Simon Hunt.
