Thursday twilight meet with modified program
At this stage the twilight meet scheduled for John Turnbull Oval on Thursday January 29 is still going ahead.
We will be running a modified program to accommodate the two rained out meets; some age groups are scheduled for 6 events, some 5, and some 4. The 1500m will be a Championship event and the Walks Championships will be held over to a future Saturday. The modified programs is:
New shipping container for high jump mats and equipment
On Friday January 23, after years of work by many Hobart Districts committees, we finally took possession of a shipping container for storage of our high jump mats and associated equipment.
A big thank you to everyone who has played a part in getting us to this day. Hopefully our mats will last a bit longer now that we don't have to cart them across the oval.
Take a look at the photo album to see how it ended up where it is. Note: the photos are misleading - Brideson didn't really have as much to do with it as the photos suggest - many thanks to Scott Hartill and Michael Cox.

New Centre Records - December 20
Congratulations to Lucy Carter on breaking the U13 girls 200m hurdles record for the third time this season.
Congratulations also to first time record holder Keeley Saunder in the U7 girls vortex. Unfortunately for Keeley, her first throw of 18.02m wasn't recognised as a Centre record but luckily her 3rd throw also went past the previous record and this time an official was on hand to ratify the distance. Here's hoping Keeley sends the vortex out past 18m again this season.
- U7 girls vortex. old: Didi Johnson 16.12m (15/2/14); new: Keeley Saunder 16.98m.
- U13 girls 200m hurdles. old: Lucy Carter 36.1s (15/11/14); new: Lucy Carter 35.8s.
