RYCO 24•7 Southern Stars Victorious

Daniel Bennet – Business Development Manager RYCO 24•7

 

Congratulations to the RYCO 24•7 sponsored Southern Stars Netball Team 2 in winning the Under 15s SUNA Division 2 Netball competition last Tuesday night, 2nd October 2012.

 

The girls started the year in Division 1 with mixed results – 1 win from 4 games. After 4 weeks, the girls moved into Division 2, which brought even more competition with winning results.
All the girls played the season with great spirit and endeavour resulting in them winning the pinnacle – the Grand Final!

 

The Southern Stars are very excited about the upcoming new season and defending their premiership.
RYCO 24•7 is proud to be the sponsor of the U15s Southern Stars and congratulate all the girls and coaching staff who showed great spirit and enthusiasm throughout the season, well done!

Lake Taupo Cycling Challenge

During our international conference in May of this year, a challenge was put forward by our New Zealand team. Not to back down from supporting a good cause or challenge from our team, along with continuation of the friendly Australian/New Zealand rivalry, TEAM RYCO was born! Jim Searle (our temporary Australian), Sean Babbage, Darrin Barr and Ian Morris, along with four RYCO New Zealand distributors, set out for the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge on 27th November 2010.

 

The Lake Taupo Challenge is an annual event and one of New Zealand’s premier cycle challenges supporting New Zealand’s Life Long Heart Charity. The event is held around the glorious Lake Taupo and covers a total 160 kilometres for solo riders, which was the event in which TEAM RYCO competed.

 

Unfortunately due to injury Ian Morris was forced to withdraw prior to the event, however he did a fantastic job supporting the other novice riders. This was a great team event showcasing determination, team work and the camaraderie of our TEAM RYCO coming together to compete as one and support each other through an enduring challenge.  

 

Well done to all…

A RYCO Mountain Bike Champion in New Zealand

tl_files/RYCO247/images_content/Health Articles/scott-barr-10.28.jpgThirteen year old Scott Barr, son of Darrin Barr - RYCO’s Regional Sales Manager for the South Island of New Zealand, recently competed in the New Zealand Mountain Bike Cup and the New Zealand Mountain Bike Championships riding in RYCO cycling gear. The NZ MTB championships were held in Dunedin on the 26th and 27th February 2011. Conditions were wet, muddy and cold (normal for Dunedin), however Scott had a good race. The pressure was on for Scott to keep pushing hard and make no mistakes. He ended up winning by 25 seconds.

 

Darrin would like to thank RYCO, Village Cycles, Translog & HSR for their support.

Wests Cycle Classic

Congratulations to the team from Centennial Coal, a RYCO customer in New South Wales, Australia, who competed in the West Cycle Classic event. RYCO were proud to support the team by providing them with their RYCO cycling gear. It is an annual eight day event held in March that aims to raise money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

 

Alan Maurer, Logistics Coordinator at Centennial Coal, gave us a great outline of the team’s experience:

 

‘We made it. Eight days in the saddle and plenty of climbing on most of those days, hundreds of kilometres over beautiful parts of Australia I'd never seen before (in a cracker of a season - it's green everywhere), wonderful riding mates, great volunteers, great food, sensational family atmosphere in a group of 70 people; it really doesn't get a lot better… the pain of the hills and mountains all seems worth it when we look at the reason we're riding.’

 

Alan went on to thank RYCO for our support of the event.

RYCO Staff Participate in ‘Movember’ 2010

tl_files/RYCO247/images_content/Health Articles/movember.jpgDuring November each year, gentlemen across the globe grow moustaches during November to raise awareness and funds for cancer affecting men. 

 

A couple of RYCO Melbourne employees supported the cause by growing a ‘mo’ for ‘Movember’ in 2010, raising awareness for depression, prostate cancer and men’s health in general.
