Yes it is!
As the Lucky Country picked up the pace
with now more than 10 million vaccinations and 35% of the adult population at least partially vaccinated, half of our population is now back to solo, twosome, household or online activities until further notice, until Delta becomes just a singer again, and we can stop playing hotspot Bingo. Thankfully we still have a 10km radius limit, which affords a seemingly infinite variety of routes for running or walking during this unusual time of cacophonous bushtracks and peaceful construction sites..
Meanwhile, committee members took a breather from cancelling group runs on the calendar, and made great progress on our new-look website to be released very soon, initiated Twitter
accounts, and ran a Strava Art competition over the weekend. In the latter, we congratulate Venn Hardy
for his winning masterpiece, a puppy (see image below), with compliments for submissions that were more family-friendly than a big bucket of popcorn & a Disney animation film. We heard Banksy submitted a more edgy drawing, but hit Delete before the judges could see it.
Our sizeable committee (15 members!) will meet online tonight, so if you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to respond to this email.

Cement your place in history! (or at least improve the future)
We have started to upgrade our running route maps to digital versions. This means the new printed maps will be much easier to follow and include points of interest, turn by turn directions and an elevation chart. You will also be able to navigate the route with your mobile phone with one of several apps. So far, five Saturday club runs have been converted https://ridewithgps.com/collections/28502?privacy_code=OxdjCLtrWc3Mxq3Q but there are plenty more to do. We use an online tool called RideWithGPS to create the maps. If there are members with good computer skills who would like to assist with this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile, keep running and maybe finding some new routes away from crowded places.
