Well the Port Pirie Masters Games are over and what a thrilling 10 days it has been bringing you interviews and results and catching up with the really wonderful people in our area who organise sport for the various organisations. The crew at Trax FM appreciate the time you spent with us talking sport. Well done to all of the organisers out there who were involved from the various clubs. Without you the competition would not have gone ahead, and we would not have access the enthusiasm and thoughtfulness that you have expressed to us and our listeners through your interviews. We have made friends and have already a few things in the pipeline for the future.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported our bingo night at the Lions Football club tonight. Thank you to the Lions for having us there and making us welcome. The money we raised will help us to continue to provide a radio service to our community we love.
