Round 9 Summer 2016-17

Round 9 was cancelled due to extreme heat. We decided yesterday that we would cancel the event if the temperature was likely to hit the forecasted 40 deg C. As many of you know, we have a 1 hour cancellation policy. By 1:15pm we decided that it was more than likely to be greater than 40 deg

Stats from the cancelled event include;

Max temperature: 42.3 deg C.

Disappointment: 100%

Kids suffering heat stroke: 0%

The commissaire telling me “I told you so” as the temp crossed 40: No less than 5 times

Number of unused ice blocks in my freezer: 100

Many of the older kids will be at Dubbo for State Champs next week. Junior Cyclist, will be there to support them. -Round 10 will be on the following week, 19 Feb 2017.

      Wow, I declined an offer to swim in a friend’s pool simply because it was in the sun. I can’t imagine how much hotter it would have been with the heat radiating off the asphalt.
