Arguably our coldest ever parkrun at Batemans Bay but at least we could make our Canberra visitors feel at home. Cool temperatures and no wind meant quite a few PBs were achieved today. Congratulations to Kathryn Sliwinski, Peter Counsell, Barry King, Jeff McKenzie, Tania Dorney, Netta Koeck and Judith McKenzie. And a big welcome to a few first timers to the Batemans Bay course - Jen Bright, Julia Martina, Martin Greenaway, Leslie Crompton, Sue Gibson and Bob Mathieson.
