Talk of the Town - - Golf Weekly - ... run­ners with pride

THE club has had some great re­sults over the past week.

We were the first "out of town" run­ning club to com­pete in the Eastern Prov­ince cross-coun­try league. We took first place in three dif­fer­ent age groups as well as two third places. This is re­ally great for the club and cer­tainly im­pressed the pro­vin­cial of­fi­cials.
