Tassie Results

Great results for our members who last weekend competed in the Tasmania Championships held at Campbell Town.

In conditions that were described at times as ‘Challenging’, members enjoyed the competition and we suggest you ask them about the social events including ‘Sandpit Play’ and Tassie Tiger hunt which have supporting photos?
