Two Wamboin families - the Slaters & the Durrs - took part in the 2009 Michelago Sporting Spectacular, held at the Bredbo Showgrounds on Jan 31 & Feb 1. Robyn said that the weekend was simply "brilliant", despite the hot weather, Michelago PC did a fabulous job of conducting a fun filled weekend of sporting games.
The seven riders, Kate, Lauren, Penny, Bec (honourary Durr), Ally, Jack & Charlie did a great job defending the Michelago Clear Range Trophy (won by Wamboin in 2006, 2007 & 2008), but were pipped into second place by a very strong Michelago team. The competition was great, very friendly and there were over 105 riders competing over the 2 days.
Jack Durr came away with the Highpoint Award for his age group, as did Lauren Slater for her age division. Both Penny & Lauren made the 25 riders for the Flag Spectacular and Lauren went all the way to the final, where she finished 2nd.
Way to go Wamboin!!!
