VOSSELER 2024
DATE: Saturday May 25th
TIME: 11.45am – 4pm

Hi everyone,
 
Tomorrow, let’s make it a sea of blue singlets across the green slopes of Matairangi. We celebrated the Centenary of the Vosseler Shield last year. This year is the 100th running of the race.
 
WCC maintenance has resulted in the removal of most of the ruts and other hazards on the tracks and trails. You won’t believe how smooth the surface is. Weather forecasts are good.
 
Uplift your interclub race bib at the clubrooms from 11:30am. Traffic is horrendous through town, so leave home 30 minutes before you think you need to.

John

There will be a barbecue and bake sale at the clubrooms for the Vosseler. We would appreciate a donation of baking for this fundraiser. Don’t forget to bring cash for your purchases as no card payments available. 
 
Cheers Bertram
