BIG News….. The Cancer Council’s Penrith Relay-For- Life 2016 has a new DATE & VENUE,

The new date is Saturday, 2nd at 9.30 am to Sunday 3rd APRIL to 10am.

The new venue is inside the Trotting Track at the Penrith Showground!

The Nepean / Blue Mountains Prostate Cancer Support Group will again, (for the 9th year) be running two teams & with new date & venue, we’d really like YOU to come & be part of this exciting venture.

The two teams are Prostate Pals East for those who live East of the Nepean River, your team Captain is Eric Kent, & Prostate Pals West for those who live West of the River & up the Mountains, John Kemp is your Captain.
The only reason we have two teams is, we can get a bigger tent site, (& it’s easier for Eric & John to contact you). Once we are there we are all one team. Our tent site is already booked & it’s all systems GO!

If you register before the end of November you get the early bird discount rate, to register, please go to Cancer Council Penrith Relay For Life 2016 & follow the links to find our teams. Any one can join the teams, wives, kids, relations, friends.

We really want to make our team stand out in the relay next year, if anyone has any ideas re wearing something different, i.e. clothes, funny uniform, hats, or ideas on decorating our site, please have a think & let Eric or John know. (There is a prize for the best decorated tent).

Just a couple of new things at the relay, are, (a) there will be a Health / Cancer info area from about 11am to 3pm on the Saturday, We will have a Prostate Cancer info table there, & if your not doing laps & would like to man the table please let either Captain know, (b), you will be able to buy for the weekend an E-tag type of clip that will count the laps you & your team do as you past the “reader”, we are hoping to have at least 2 team members on the track the whole time we are there, if you want to do 10pm to 6am let us know, (no dramas if you don’t).

There will be lots of other activities / displays there this time at well.

OH, one great thing will be EVERYONE can park on the infield!

Please put the date on your fridge door NOW, & when you get next year’s diary / calendar mark it in, lets make this a great group outing, come when you can, go when you have to.

Thank you for taking this event on board, if you have any questions / ideas, please contact John Kemp on email

Take care, and
Enjoy each day
