Weekly update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

Sorry the Newsletter is late,  my boys have used all the downloads at home and tethering from my phone was just too slow. So I decided to use the Joondalup library’s free WIFI.  It’s and awesome place and it even has books!!!  There were a few noisy kids about, so the lovely lady at the desk suggested I use the nice computer room downstairs, but as my knee isn’t liking stairs at the moment, I stayed put.  Now for the Update!!!   Ok before I get to the update, just to let you know, that you can only use the WIFI for an hour at a time, after that it all locks up…thanks for let me know, NOT!!!  remember the saying, “GOD SAVES”.  I think it’s a hint that my parking limit is up…BUGGER!!! Can I claim that???

It is that time of year again when your North Coast and TWA memberships are up for renewal.  You would have received an email from TWA with details on how to renew your membership.  If you have any difficulties, please let them know.

What is it with this Saturday rain??  Caught up with a few drowned rats on the weekend, they were going for a ride but decided it was too wet and did a trail run instead.  They looked absolutely gorgeous.  Hello Winter…

The 8 Week City to Surf Program for the 12km and 21km will start on the 5th July.  The course cost is only $99.  Our coaches, Pippa and Janine will provide expert coaching over the 8 week program including personalised programs each week.  You can register for the program at Register Now.  And don’t forget the 25% discount on the C2S entry fee.
