The 2005 Tingalpa Trot was held on Sunday 6 February 2005.
With a turning tide the race was not going to see the fast times of the past few years. A total of 107 paddlers participated in the Trot with almost 30 of these entering on the morning of the race. This did slow our registration process down a little but the race still started just after 8.00am.
At the conclusion of the race Councillor Helen Murray presented class winners with their prize of a waterbottle. Some were lucky enough to find $10 extra inside. Geoff Urquhart was the lucky winner of the $100 draw. Two paddlers names were drawn before Geoff but were not there to claim the prize. Happy spending Geoff! Five $20 gift vouchers sponsored by Stockmans Supplies, Cleveland Chiropractic and George Hartnett Funerals were given out by lucky draw.
A big thank you to those paddlers who attended and a BIGGER thank you to all of the Wynnum Redlands members that gave up the chance to compete to ensure that the race went smoothly
