  1. Hi Cade,

    The Stawell Gift is very important to the area bringing in may tourists from throughout NSW. Tourist mean business the area would otherwise miss out on. Good luck to all participants..

  2. Hello Cade,

    Sounds like an interesting event. Love the look of those sponsor T-shirts 🙂 Great colours and great logo design.

    Sportstrap is important for those that compete professionally. Our oldest plays a lot of sport and yep we go through a lot of sportstrap!

    All the best of luck to the squad team…have a great race 🙂


  3. Hi Cade,

    Just thought i’d touch base and let u guys and girls know at Sportstrap that we are all back into training for season 2012/2013…. I myself have been away from the sport since Feb 2011 and then have starteed the hard road back to getting race fit again after having my first child in Sept 2011. We have a few new members in our squad so once we get going i will send through another pic of the squad. We appreciate your ongoing support and i know my feet sure do appreciate it as they are carrying around a few extra kg’s at the moment…lol. Take care and talk soon

    • Congrats on becoming a Mum, Jacqui. It really is a fantastic time of your life.
      Great to hear your back on the track too, boy that was quick.

      Looking forward to seeing you compete at your best again. Go get ’em Girl
