World Champion

Julie Quinn and her partner Heather Logie kicked butt in the World 
Rogaining Championships held last weekend and now hold the title of 
Women's World Rogaining champions for 2006. They finished 12th team 
overall and easily being the next women's team home. Dave Baldwins team 
was 8th overall in what must have been a pretty tough field. Full results 
can be found here http://www.fictional-characters.com/rogaine/results.htm

A huge congratulations to Julie from all of us.

Helper required for Triple Tri

Dave Baldwin is still looking for an assistant for the Triple Tri that he 
is competing in as a solo entrant. It involves driving from transition 
area to transition area ensuring he has the equipment and munchies needed 
to complete the next leg of the race. If you are up for a day of 
adventure, please email Dave at david.baldwin at bilbys.org.

Swimmer available for Triple Tri

Oneeka Rob says :- I'm a female swimmer who does not have a team for this 
year's triple tri. (My regular women's team of 9 has ditched all younger 
females from the team in pursuit of a more mature aged team).  I am a 
reasonably paced swimmer who swims competitively and any swim leg of the 
TT is OK. I would prefer not to swim all 3 legs, 1 or 2 legs is fine.
Pls contact Oneeka at Oneeka.Robb at dotars.gov.au or Phone: 6274 7166 

Novice Evening Next Thursday
A reminder that this years novice program starts on Thursday Oct 26 at 
Wests/Turner bowling Club at 7pm. We have had a large amount of interest 
so it promises to be a big season. Details of the program can be found at 

If anyone is keen to put their name down as people who might be able to 
assist Gary Rolfe with cycling and/or running sessions then please drop 
him a line at gary.rolfe at bilbys.org 
Most coaches are booked in but you never know when we might need more 

The coach is not there to run after us all. Before you get into the pool, 
please grab your flippers , paddles and a pool buoy from the bins so that 
they are available when you need them. We have also had some flippers go 
AWOL and since the flipper bin is locked at all times when not in use, the 
only way that could have happened is if people borrow them and leave them 
on the side of the pool. So please do not borrow other peoples flippers 
for your set, move to the back of the lane and use your feet until you 
have managed to purchase your own.

Watch for Cyclists Jerseys & Knicks

We all know and love the 'Watch for Cyclists' bumper sticker, but have you 
seen the Watch for Cyclists Jersey? 

If you order a jersey or knicks before 30/10/2006, you receive a Watch for 
Cyclist biddon free (normally $15).

Have you heard about Greenfleet?
"Climate change and global warming are among today's most pressing 
environmental issues, brought about by increased concentrations of 
greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Transport is Australia's fastest 
growing source of greenhouse gas emissions. Greenfleet is a non-profit 
organisation. Our program provides a simple way to reduce your car's 
impact on the environment. For $40 (tax deductible), Greenfleet will plant 
17 native trees on your behalf. These trees will help to create a forest, 
and as they grow will absorb the greenhouse gases that your car produces 
in one year (based on 4.3 tonnes of CO2 for the average car*). Science 
shows that 17 mixed species trees will not only absorb a car's greenhouse 
emissions, but will also help to tackle salinity, improve water quality 
and provide essential habitat for native species."

RSPCA's Pet of the Week

Can you give a home to a friendly pooch or perhaps a cute cat? Perhaps you 
can temporarily offer dogs a home for as long as it takes to find them 
loving, permanent homes?

Meet the very sweet and affectionate Mr Roger Ramjet - the RSPCA's Pet of 
the Week.  He is a 5 month old Kelpie x who really deserves to find a 
home. Roger had a tough start to life before coming to the RSPCA as his 
mum and dad were only fed on Fridays in his previous home. Despite this 
all the pups managed to survive and after some care at the RSPCA, Mum, Dad 
and all the other littermates have found homes. Now we just need to find a 
home for Roger.

He is a highly trainable young dog that would make an excellent exercise 
companion. Perfect for fit and active Bilbys members! He is generally 
quiet, gentle and unobtrusive for a young dog. So if you are looking for 
an affectionate, quiet pal have a look at Roger Ramjet. In addition to 
Roger there is another sweetie called Kewell still looking for a home.
He is the last of a litter who came in during World Cup Soccer time and 
who ended up with names such as Aloisi, Kewell etc.

For more information please contact the RSPCA on 6287 8100 or visit the 
Shelter at Kirkpatrick Street, Weston (off Cotter Road). You can also 
contact ACT Rescue & Foster (ARF) - see http://www.fosterdogs.org/ to meet 
other gorgeous animals looking for homes.
