The Silly Season -Thursday 14/Jan

Thursday 14/Jan   Grade 1 to 3

 

The silly season starts on January 4th this year.  It’s the time of year when you have to go to work, but the roads are empty so you can get out and do stuff beforehand.

OK, so the plan is – meet at Balmoral at 5:45, and start paddling at 6:00 (we won't wait for stragglers).  Head out for a 10k loop (we’ll need to maintain 7kph).  Back at Balmoral at 7:30.  There’s hot showers if you don’t have a shower available at work.  There’s coffee if you do have the option of showering at work.

 

Another week and the silly season will be over till next year …
