A big thanks to Murray and the Sprout Daily crew for their support, and their continued documenting of dawn life at Manly. Murray has been down at Manly early, catching Manly Mal Club members and Snowy competitors Cam Gray, Jack Entwistle and Ivana Stepankova busily rehearsing for their heats, photos of which appear in his daily emails.
