First of all
Fantastic job done by Mick Corlis and Vince Craig in getting the Weston Creek Half Marathon results up so quickly, then fixing up the myriad of little anomalies in a day flat. That's awesome! I have updated yesterday's post with the corrected individual and team results (times and places) and would like to highlight the fact that speedygeese teams were first (an FFM team, well ahead) and third (the first FF team). Great work, everybody. Let's support this excellent event in 2009, even when they revert to the usual course!

Today was part of Canberra's 95 year celebrations (yes interstate/international reader, we are a young city). At the Canberran of the Year award presentations, both my wife and her mother, along with a handful of other long term residents who have made contributions to this great city, received special awards from the Chief Minister.
And I got a chance to try my new camera (if the photos came out, it's a good camera!)
C. E. May Lowes and Jennifer Anne Moore with their awards.
Angelo Cataldo's mum and dad at the presentations. Guiseppe Cataldo receiving his award from the Deputy Chief Minister was a feature of the event. My first day ever as a photographer not so great a highlight.
