The Club is still seeking a willing and gracious member, with a current driver’s licence, to volunteer to fill in for James Tan for the month of July.

When a colleague found out what I was up to this coming weekend, her comment was “you are going to freeze”.
Well, maybe if you only looked at the data such as predicted low temperature and high winds for the Tamworth region. However, this is cycling, this is racing more precisely, you do not choose the conditions, you simply prepare for them, and I like to mention the Swiss approach whilst at it: “there is no such thing as bad weather, but there is bad equipment”. And you surely needed to be ready with two days of 100 plus kms of racing in a row: a Handicap race in honour of a young rider tragically killed and a Scratch race.
Pre-Paid race entries are now open for the second half of 2018. Waratah members can pre-pay their race entry fees for the 2nd half of the year for $125. The easiest and preferred way to pay is by EFT direct to the club as follows:- Account Waratah Masters C.C. BSB: 112879 Account No: 098120801. Please provide your full name so we can identify the payment. Otherwise cash will be accepted on race days.
Please note that pre-payments do not include entry to ‘open events’ – the Southern Hemipshere Cup.
Non-Waratahs can also pre-pay at a cost of $200
A handful of Waratahs took a punt on the weather and fronted a cold and damp Calga course. A tough day made worse by the non-appearance of the coffee van.
While the short course was won by Damon Malek (Penrith CC) with a blistering 35:11 (42.6kmh average), Michael Troup was the fastest Waratah on the day with 38:20 for 5th place overall. Your correspondent recorded a man-flu induced 39:08 for 7th place. Jeremy Lowes was disappointed in his solid effort of 40:31 and Geraldine Blomfield-Brown showed her strength with 40:56. One more Calga TT remains before the NSW Club TT champs in Nowra on 21 July.
