There are lots of photos posted to Facebook, thanks to several parents but also a huge thank you to Gordon Tam who not only stitched and patched but also took time to take some great photos of the action.
We sincerely thank all team officials involved, with a special mention to Alethea Stove, who has been in constant contact, met with teams, officials, coaches, sorted issues and supplied information to orgsanisers and "home base" as required. Thank you for the huge commitment and hours spent ensuring the best outcomes for our members while on tour.
