FROM THE SPORTS DESK: The best and worst of a cold week
HAPPY Friday everyone!
As I write this, it is a crazy Thursday in The Gympie Times newsroom and I am trying to get my head around all the awesome local sport that is happening in our great town this weekend.
Our photographer Troy Jegers and I will be doing our best to get to everything on Saturday but the best laid plans do often go astray.
Firstly, I think we can all agree not to mention Wednesday night at all.
