A calm, sunny day and not that many cricket players made for great running conditions this morning at K Park. Thanks to our race officials John Turner, Ray Marten, Michael Wray and Sharon Wray for making sense of the chaos.
Fastest team on the day was the McLean Team (12) – finishing its 10 laps in a blazing 31.38. However the team members agreed before the start to take a special McLean Family handicap as well as their random handicap so were knocked out of the running for the shield.
The winning team, which completed its ten laps in a sharp 36.39 and was then allocated the lowest possible handicap, was Jamie White, Chan Kulathilake and Millar Buck (Team 11). I hear Millar is taking the shield to school next week – but probably not in his school bag?
Tom and the J Team also turned out and seemed to clock up about 7 laps around the park between them. And they were still full of running at the end.
