The Town of Mosman Park, with the Mosman Park Youth Advisory Council hosted its very popular STOMP! event yesterday, which saw Mosman Park come alive with orange-clad and enthusiastic youngsters racing around the Town, taking part in challenges and generally having a great time.
One hundred participants aged between 10 and 18 years took part in STOMP! 2015 on Sunday 20 September, an event that was sold out well in advance, and is now clearly a favourite event on the calendar with the Town’s young people.
The intrepid teams completed the thirteen checkpoints across a route that covered 9 kilometres around Mosman Park, meandering through some of the Town’s most scenic locations from the Russell Brown Adventure Park to the finish line at Jabe Dodd Park where ‘The Airheads’ took line honours in a time of 1hr 39 minutes.
At the conclusion of the event; participants, parents and volunteers joined organisers for a picnic and presentations, sharing their own personal highlights of what was clearly an exciting, challenging and rewarding experience for all involved.
This is the Mosman Park Youth Advisory Councils’ third STOMP! event, with numbers increasing each year from 36 in 2013, to 72 in 2014, and this year easily filling the 100 spaces for participants this year.
The Town is grateful to many local community groups who all participated in the event by running checkpoints on the day; including the Mosman Park Tennis Club, Mosman Park Community Men’s Shed, Mosman Park Netball Club, Swan Canoe Club, Mosman Bay Scout Group, Mosman Park Bowling Club as well as Bakers Delight who again prepared our special STOMP! buns featuring bright orange icing.
The Town of Mosman Park gave special thanks to the members of the Mosman Park Youth Advisory Council – particularly Georgie, Brandon, Amy V, Amy B, Lydia and Caleb for their help in advance of the event and on the day. Stomp! would not be possible without their support.
Deputy Mayor of Mosman Park, Councillor Ian Flack, was at the Mosman Park Bowling Club on the day and had the opportunity to observe the event from this vantage point. He said he was most impressed with the organisation involved, as well as conduct of the enthusiastic young participants. He congratulated the organisers and participants for a well-run and well enjoyed event.
