Written on the 30 November 2016
Earlier this month twenty-four of our clients, six staff and two volunteers spread across three teams, two from the Murraylands (Magpies A and Magpies B) and one from the Adelaide Hills (The Hills Hornets), packed their bags and made their way to Horsham to compete in the 2016 Tri State Games!The Tri State Games are a week long sporting event that attract approximately 300 athletes living with disability from across Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia. The games are held annually and focus on providing active participation, friendly competition and positive social interaction.
Great success was had by all of our teams with the Hills Hornets winning a total of 16 medals with 3 of its team members achieving personal bests! The Magpies B team performed well across all aspects athletics, aquatics and indoor with the Magpies A team finishing in 3rd place for the Athletics! Everyone involved did themselves and the organisation proud with their commitment, dedication and positivity, demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship throughout the week.
The week wasn't all sport and competition, the crew also got to enjoy a day off exploring the Grampians, including McKenzie Falls and Halls Gap and one night they celebrated their successes at the Country and Western themed disco!
Check out some photos of the event in our gallery, the guys all had an amazing time and returned home with some wonderful memories and new friends, not to mention their medals!
