The Official Opening of the 2020/21 season was held on Saturday morning prior to competition commencing. Centre President, Maria Downes welcomed all new and returning members and wished everyone the best for the upcoming season. Newly elected Centre Captains were announced. Zane Rich will be the male captain, while Caitlin Mai and Tamara Henry will share the role as female captains.
Once all the formalities had concluded, competition commenced. The first few events were contested in light misty rain but it wasn’t too long before the low cloud lifted and the rain had cleared. Although the morning was still cool the kids enjoyed being back out on the track and competing against their peers.
