Subject: Thank you for attending the opening of the Girraween Sports Complex

Good afternoon
We would just like to thank you all for coming this morning to the opening of the Girraween Sports Complex and if you took part in the race – awesome work on the criterium track in pretty warm conditions. We had a lot of great feedback about how exciting it was and well done to the three Ben’s for winning it. Maybe we can make it part of the Noosa Tri or winter series ??
I know it was a busy day with media commitments for some of you so thank you again for taking the time get here this morning.
Sunshine Coast Daily already have images up on their website too

Remember if you have any questions regarding booking the track please give me a call or shoot me an email.
Happy Noosa Tri weekend
Kind Regards,

Alinda Bryant | Sport & Recreation Support Officer
