Regional Carnival Update
After careful consideration and discussion with LAQ, the following arrangements have been made for Regional Championships.
Walks ONLY will be held this Friday, February 14 at Pizzey Park.  Athletes need to be ready to marshall at 4:30pm (Qld time) for a 5pm start.  Please bring a towel, change of clothes and mozzie spray.
We have been granted permission from LAQ to postpone the remainder of competition until February 22 and 23, to be held at Pizzey Park.  This is due to further rain predicted this week, and in the interest of athlete safety and the enjoyment of the competition.
In the unlikely event that these dates are washed out, results will be determined by PBs as submitted at time of nominations.
