From the President
I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce everybody to our new monthy newsletter. We will use this medium to keep GPC members up to date with what were doing, up coming events, results and latest news.
We'd like to welcome Tish Wasson as our new secretary, she will be putting our monthly newsletter together plus provide updates via our Facebook page.
As most of you know we sent a large team to the GPC Worlds again this year, and they came home with a swag of medals and world records. Congratulations to Scott Wasson as the team coach on another great campaign, plus his 2nd gold medal in as many years.
The next big event on the GPC Calendar is the National Push Pull on December the 1st, hope to see a huge number of lifters contest this event Australia wide.
