Twenty invitees are still to reply.  RSVP 7 May
"You are invited to the Speedygeese Dinner at Two Sisters, Dickson Lao Thai Cuisine at the friendliest restaurant in Dickson. Just $25 per head for the banquet, it's a bargain, and licensed, or byo wine $2.90 corkage. Time: 7:30pm, Date: Monday 10th May. Training will be suspended for that day! Family, friends are welcome too. RSVP Friday 7 May. I have booked for 40 so there will be no problem fitting everyone in. Please let me know if you wish to order off the menu instead of having the $25 banquet."

Marathon results below. No DNFs from the speedygeese! We're a fit lot. The full results are on the ACTCCC website.


  1. Not completely terrible - at least we won!!

    Won't be at the session tonight but plan to be there Thursday so I can at least "collect" on my bet with Brett (c'arn the pies!!)

  2. Cathy Montalto and Graham will be at the speedygeese dinner Geoff. They don't have home email access at the moment. I posted this on FB but just in case I'll put it here as well. :) Sorry, think I'll miss training tonight - I'm a bit sore!

  3. A big well done to all those that ran on the weekend...

    Geoff, please accept my apologies, I can't make the Speedygeese Dinner on the 10th.

    Hope all that go, enjoy themselves and pat each other on the backs for their great efforts over the last year.

    Yours in Running Writing

  4. I am sorry Geoff about the dinner I work most nights since January doing overtime. I hope you have a great night.
