Meningie parkrun ~ Event #23 ~ 9th February 2019

The rain didn't stop our regulars, 1st timers and tourists. Despite the damp and windy conditions, the general consensus was that we had a very enjoyable parkrun.

Well done to Jack BILLINGTON who joined the Volunteer 25 Club today. Not a bad effort considering Jack is only 8 years of age.

Ang BJERSANDER did a great job on her debut as our Run Director today. She certainly was tested with sound of the rain hammering down on the shelter at parkrun hub (start/finish area) during her brief but was able to pull it off with no issues at all.

Welcome to our 1st timers today:
Paul HORWOOD
Margaret FALKENHAGEN

Paul was also our sole tourist today visiting from his home parkrun of Gawler. He came down last night with his wife and stayed at one of the local motels just to tick Meningie off his parkrun list. That is dedication for you.

CONGRATULATIONS to Deb DAWES, who recorded a PB today.

As you know, none of this would have been possible without the help from our great group of volunteers. Thank you. Today they were:

RUN DIRECTOR: Angelika BJERSANDER
TIME KEEPER: Alan GRAY
FINISH TOKENS: Jack BILLINGTON
BARCODE SCANNING: Sally BILLINGTON
MARSHAL: Sally Ann GRAY
TAIL WALKER: Rebecca FALKENHAGEN
PACER (30 MIN): Matthew BILLINGTON

We look forward to doing it all next week. Just a reminder that next week we will be using our alternate course due to the local sailing club using the park space on the northern side of their building.

The Age Grade course record is held by Jenni LUTZE who recorded 80.58% (23:05) on 22nd September 2018 (event number 5).
Meningie parkrun started on 18th August 2018. Since then 135 participants have completed 242 parkruns covering a total distance of 1,210 km, including 29 new Personal Bests. A total of 29 individuals have volunteered 142 times.

Next week we have several things happening, so if you were planning to visit Meningie parkrun, please consider making next week the one that you do.

1. We will have Angelika BJERSANDER debuting for the 1st time as our Run Director, so please come along to support her.

2. We have our Event Director Matt Billington ticking the box as our 30 minute pacer, and last but not least and certainly a very big one if you ask us,

3. Jack BILLINGTON will be our 1st Junior to Enter the Volunteer 25 club. This is massive as we do not know of any other 8 years old who has already volunteered at parkrun for 25 times in 5 different roles including 4 times as a Run Director. Huge Achievement.

So lets try any crack our attendance records for the 3 above reasons alone.

Thank you for another awesome week and we will see you for Event #23 on 9th February 2019.
