Congratulations to our Gold medal March Past team for an outstanding performance. A big thank you to  Leticia Gillard and Shirley Clarke for their coaching of the team and Good luck for Country next weekend. Day 1 of Branch Champs  and the individual events has left my head spinning even trying to recall all the fantastic achievements from the Caba Crew. Way too many results to mention but I would like to comment on one of the most brilliant displays of sportsmanship from two of our U14 boys. I'll set the scene. Last round of flags, the decider of first and second place and an accidental connection with a shoulder and front tooth. Both boys stopped! The shoulder asked the tooth if he was OK not even concerned about the flag that marked a gold medal. Mate ship and tooth still intact, Shoulder offered Tooth the flag but Tooth declined. How do you solve this dilemma…. Paper Scissors Rock of course! After a few rounds Shoulder won but as area Marshall at that time, I overruled and offered a tie for first as in my eyes and everyone that watched on Lachlan Watt and Finn Whitney you are true champions both deserving.

Day 2 was all about team events and this is where we as a club shine. The gold winning All Age Relay set a high standard for the day and that's where it stayed. A special mention to the U8 who came home with enough medals that if the cyclone came we would have to tie them down and to our Golden Girl Isabella Tate who came away with overall point score.  To our athletes, Officials, Age Managers and Coaches, congratulations and well done to you all.

Next Week we are off to the Stramit NSWSLS Country Championships which is always the highlight of our season.  Watch out South West Rocks, here comes the Caba Crew!
