Vale Stan Bisset

by admin on October 7, 2010

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mr Stan Bisset, a true Australian hero.

Harry (my brother), Dad and I met Mr. Bisset a few weeks back when we went and had afternoon tea with Stan and his wife Gloria in Coolum.

Mr. Bisset then arranged for Harry and I and our Kokoda Challenge team to go along to the 2/14th Battalion reunion in Brisbane, which was an enormous thrill for us all.

Mr Bisset was a remarkable Australian and the nation is poorer for his loss.

Vale Mr. Bisset.

Gold Coast Half Ironman

by admin on October 7, 2010

I managed to struggle through the Gold Coast Half Ironman Triathlon yesterday raced in terrible conditions – poured rain all day.

Dad got a funny photo of me about to jump in the water – that’s me in the pink cap, without a wet suit, with 100 or so wet suit clad people in the background.
