Space Racing - our school holiday activity for kids - enjoyed a massive boost when Sydney Weekender aired a segment about it on Sunday.
Liz Bulman, who with husband John volunteers regularly, was on hand as coach... along with a handful of our NSW junior squad members to show host Mel the ropes.
You can view the three-minute clip here.
Thanks to our good friends at Sydney Olympic Park for suggesting we appear on the show, and to all who participated. It's a great way to promote out sport.

WHO put on a terrific coaching day for bush novices at Fed Caterson Reserve in Castle Hill on Saturday.
Now that our summer series have finished and daylight saving is about to end, it's time we all turn our attention to traditional orienteering - line courses through the bush, requiring compass navigation.
That demands a whole new skill set and instructor Barry Hanlon had around 25 attendees lapping up his knowledge, including 10 students from Arden College (Epping) preparing for the state finals of the Hillary Challenge.
Thanks Barry and WHO for this great initiative - it's already booked in for next year.

WHO's Andy Hill has claimed the SSS Cup by a mere 5 points after a fantastic finale on the much-loved Macquarie Uni map.
Andy (left, runner-up in the Open Men's division), held off Immortal Men's winner Heiko Schaefer in the tally of points from all 26 events.
Remarkably, six runners were in the mix for the Cup before Wednesday's last event.
Steve Ryan (Garingal) and Gill Fowler (Big Foot) were crowned Open champions.
A huge thank you to all the setters, organisers and club members who helped make this the truly lovely series that it has become. And check out the Facebook album. If you have a friend, neighbour, work colleague, team-mate etc who's looking for something a little different on the fitness/exercise front - let them know about our great sport and its many formats.
Next year we celebrate 25 years of the SSS. We think this milestone deserves to be marked in a special way, so let our supremo ROSSS Barr know your thoughts.
Word has reached our ear already that a dinner after the Wed Nov 25 event (the exact anniversary) is on the cards.
