After enjoying conversation and a barbecue lunch, club president, Dave McDonald announced seven Ultra members who made the top 15 in the World Masters Rankings. That’s pretty impressive for a club of approximately 25 people! The following are those members whose name sit among the world’s best:

  • Rose Hare (W65-69) – 13th in Hammer, 12th in Weight, 10th in Discus, 6th in Throws Pentathlon & 2nd in Super Weight
