With Anthony out of the region, it was up to Heff to tell us all about the Rankins Springs weekend of birds and running.
Seeing as Anthony was unavailable to do this trip’s postcard, I thought I would try and fill the gap without an “App”.
Last Sunday was the second running of the Rankin Springs Fun Run, which several Ferals came, saw and conquered. (See photo)
The weather and the hospitality of Richard and the organising committee at Rankin Springs was great, with the Birds of the Bush Festival and Local Markets adding to the atmosphere.
The races were run and won, with the following Ferals being rewarded for their efforts:
1st Male (by a country mile) - Anthony Trefilo
1st Female U/12 – Ava Kelly
1st Male (1st outright) – Tony Gullo
1st Female – Glenys Curphey
1st Seasoned Competitors (Over 50) – Rita Fascianelli-McIver and David Heffer (2nd outright)
Matt Ross also secured 3rd (outright) and Nicole Dehnert claimed 2nd female home.
All the Ferals performed well, and another enjoyable day was finished off with a steak sandwich from the Fair, and a few beers at the pub.
