Hi all, here’s whats going on for the next few weeks, and yes there is a bit to read.

This weeks race has a new starting point to mix it up a bit for the Godings club handicap race. The 57 km race is starting at the Intersection of Hendy Main rd and Greenfields Drive Moriac. See attached map.

The course;
Southerly direction on Hendy Main to Grassdale Road (club Room Corner), left into Grassdale to Blackgate Rd turnaround, back to Nobles Road turn around, the right into Forest Rd, then two laps finishing in Larcombes Rd (A) for a total of 57 km. A great hit out before the open race. Its 4.5 km to the start line so make sure you allow enough time to get there 5 min before your start time! Yes must be entered on Sunday by 8.40 am so Dave has enough time to get to the start line!!!!

The Moriac General store is open at 8 am Sunday if you want a pre-race coffee hit and there are toilets there too, if you do pop in tell them where you are from! Go GSCC!
Entries to Dave like normal by Friday night please. daverobbo4647@hotmail.com
