Cross Country awards barbeque and President's Handicap

Dear Harriers,
I would like to begin by thanking all those who helped out to allow us to get through a cross country season under the most challenging of situations. Cathryn Harris has been amazing in setting up entry systems and officiating at events. Andrew Preston again has worked hard to process results and calculate aggregate winners as well officiating in some events. Michael Hart has marked many of the courses. We wouldn't have handicap events with the hard work of our handicapper, Rob Nicholls. Nat Shea has written up reports for the Ballarat Courier. Many others have given up their time to help officiate including Julia Selkirk, Corinna Preston, John Weeks, Mike Goodison, Dave Harris and Peter Jones. I know others have helped out who I haven't mentioned, so thank you to everyone who has chipped in.
Harriers are concluding their Cross Country Season with one final event on Tuesday evening, the 8th of December. The President's Handicap will be conducted over 4 km and the course will be an out and back course on the Wallaby Track, starting at approximately 6.15 pm. The start will be on the track just behind the Brown Hill Public Hall next to the Brown Hill Swimming Pool in Humffray Street North.
This event will be followed by a barbeque and presentations to the Ballarat Harriers Cross Country Champions and Senior and Junior handicap aggregate winners. This should be a nice finish to the Cross Country season. Meat and bread will be supplied. Please bring your own drinks and salad if you would like them.
