A big week for the Fernhoppers got off to a terrific start last night (23rd June) with our Run Bike event at Brandon Country Park. There was a great turn out with many of the people who have joined us on recently joining in with this fun event. Some did very well, some had ‘mechanicals’, and some got lost (despite an excellent map), but thankfully not permanently!
Results to follow, but in the meantime here is some of the reaction on our BFH email list:
“What a brilliant evening thanks Helene for sorting that out… the best yet I reckon .. Cheers too to those that brought the food and refreshments.
Lets try and think of something else like that we could do…. “
“Seconded, thank you Helene. Lovely evening. Thanks also to Lynn and Lyn for the refreshments :)”
“Thanks to Helene for sorting it out, Paul for prizes, Lyn and Lynn for the important afters, Shane for being roped in to partnering me, Kate for encouraging me up the hills and everyone else for waiting fir me.
Looking forward to next year!”
“I too would like to echo my thanks to Helene.
Excellent turn out too…
From the longest server Fern Hopper, it is so nice to see that the club appears to be thriving once again. So much so, it is even beginning to lead me to want to get out there again and join you guys and girls.
So, not only is the current leadership attracting newbies, it may well be re-engaging with old has-beens as well.”
