Where in the World are the Speedy Geese?

Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, June 24, 2009 with 1 comment
Many Geese have flown away from Canberra's cold winter.
David and Ruth are touring the USA; see for great reports and many excellent photos as well.

Gary and Patricia are enjoying a South Korean holiday: Here's a card they sent of the Gwaneumsa Valley of Mt Hallasan.

Andy and Miranda are sight-seeing in Australia's North, and

Neil Boden is off on a European holiday, to join daughter Lauren. Lauren is competing in the "European Athletics Promotion" (EAP) series of meets.

From the EAP website (
Boden wins athlete of the meet at Namur
World University Games representative Lauren Boden had a commanding win in the women's 400m hurdles at the EAP meet in Namur, Belgium on Saturday. Her time of 56.59s, was her third fastest ever and a new meet record.
"It was a much cleaner race than Geneva last week," said Boden who also won 1000 Euros for being named Athlete of the Meet.
"I still think I need one more competition to get race fit but I am really happy where I am at the moment."

The local write-up:
Conditions idéales, vent bien mis pour le sprint, de bons résultats.
...La meilleure performance du meeting international est celle de Lauren BODEN, en 400 haies, 56.59 avec 1138 points. (1000 euros)

Lauren, and fellow 400m hurdle runner Brendan Cole, who has won a couple of his races, then headed to Celle Ligure, Italy on June 23 for the next meet in the EAP series. That result might be up by now.

As well as David, Ruth, Gary, Miranda & Neil, other geese have been seen flying in all directions; if and when you are away, please send a card or post some photos on your blog/facebook/whatever, and I will give you a mention here... next time.

  1. Lauren is going well. She'll give Tamsyn something to think about.

    I'll try and remember to send one of those Meter Maid postcards from Surfers - I'll have plenty of time to write it if I don't make the start.
