  • Pat,

    I was impressed by the strong showing this am. 95 "tough" PCRG members attended.

    Bruce Fordyce is a distance running legend. You can hear Bruce talk @ South Bank ("The Shore") on Thursday March 14 6pm to 8.30pm.

    The guy can run a bit:

    • 9 times Comrades Marathon winner
    • Comrades course record holder for 27 years
    • Current World 50mile record holder
    • Former World 100mile record holder

    I'll be rocking along. Tickets are $50 and include finger food, limited drinks. Contact Bruce Hargreaves to secure your ticket: digger@ozemail.com.au

    Re "The Shore". You may know this restaurant as "Decks". It's the large joint down the arbour with the Crepe place next door - was also called "Captain Snapper" back in the day. John from The Ship Inn has recently taken over this restaurant. The food is superb - give "The Shore" a burl.

    The Twilight Half Marathon & 10k will take place on Sunday evening March 24. It's an event with a difference and there'll be a strong PCRG showing. You can enter here.

    PCRG "Corefit" is no longer taking place as you know it. Sal has secured a job elsewhere. Samina Diwan (PCRG member) is keen to be your instructor and to keep this rolling along. Cost will be $10 given this will not fall under the PCRG umbrella. Please contact Samina if you're keen to take part in Corefit tomorrow am - or weeks following: diwansamina@hotmail.com

    Last year we raised funds for Luke Farrelly. Ann O'Brien (Luke's Mother) has asked me to share this with you:

    Hi Pat and members of PCRG Our son, Luke was the beneficiary of the funds raised at the auction last year before the marathon. We were very fortunate to be on the receiving end of such a generous donation. I thought it was time to let you all know what we have purchased for Luke that makes his and our life a little easier.

    We purchased a regency chair that is on wheels and can recline flat so that Luke can rest and sleep in the living area of the house, rather than the bedroom. We also bought a pressure mattress which means we don't have to turn him as much through the night. For him it is a more comfortable sleep and for us a less disturbed sleep. We are currently waiting for his new wheel chair and used some of the money raised to pay for the modifications needed on the chair and finally tomorrow we pick up a body suit that he will wear which we hope will assist with slowing the progression of the scoliosis of his spine.

    As you can see the money has been well spent and we are very grateful for your generosity. Thank you for making a difference to Luke's life and ours.

    With kindest regards,
    Ann, Daniel, Luke, Isaac and Nathan

    Catch you later in the week.


    Our pleasure Ann
