ZVYC News 9 March 2017

Der Members and Friends,

Last weekend the club had its annual Bone of Contention Triathlon! This year we had more interest from the fitter athletes which raised the standard of the event. Well done to our new winner in the Open Event George O’Neill from Alfreds Rowing Club (taking a 1 second lead from the Keytel Team)! Well done Alfreds, we look forward to you guys organizing next year’s event.
First in the U16, well done to Hamilton Slater and 2nd to Isabella Keytel (close finish)! In the mixed teams we had Family Team Slater taking first position, led by Thomas!

See our Facebook page for more photo’s of the fun filled family day!
