Sunday 16th January – Cape Schanck


Contact Katie Clarke 0403 819 391

This will be the 6th year we have managed this and it is the best one day fundraiser that we do.

We raise over $2000 which goes directly to the club, but we need members to come and help either direct cars to park or be on the gate to take the $5 car parking fee.

The area is a one way in and out and about 400-500 cars are directed on the day.

If you are available to help, we offer a small amount to cover petrol and/or food costs on the day. We need about 5 people from 6am in the morning and an additional 3 from 9am till about 1pm.

If you can help for a couple of hours please get in touch with Katie Clarke on 0403 819391. It is a beautiful part of the world to explore when your shift is over. Big Thank you!!

YRA’s Annual Combined Event

This weekend, join us for Yarra Ranges Athletics combined event competition. This event is to give athletes an idea of what the State Combined Event is like which is open to U9-U16 athletes.

Combined Event is a competition which involves all athletes participating in 5-7 events, depending on age group. The table of what events athletes do on Saturday is in this newsletter.

Yarra Ranges gives out medals to our top 3 athletes in each age group. To be eligible for the medals, all athletes need to complete in every event. Each event is given a score from the Alberta Youth Scoring Table, every millisecond and centimetre gives a higher score.

We encourage everyone to give it their best try on Saturday. PB’s will be counted and contribute to the overall PB score for the 2021/2022 season. All athletes who compete on Saturday will be awarded a certificate and ribbons to 6th place. Presentation for this event will be at a later date, keep an eye on announcements in our newsletter and Facebook page, ‘Yarra Ranges Athletics Clubhouse’.

Good luck to all athletes! Do your best and have lots of Fun!!!

Make sure to check out the YRA Clubhouse Facebook page over the coming days to be up to date with the program. We look forward to seeing everyone for the combined event soon!
