WCAC Newsletter #176, 22-06-2018

Many thanks for all the help received from members, parents and friends who made last Sunday’s YDL Lower League match at Ellesmere Port Sports Village such a success. The club received a lot of messages of thanks [praising how well the fixture was organised.
The club is 20 years old this year, and to celebrate we are inviting members of every age, as well as parents and friends, to attend a birthday picnic and fun day at the Ellesmere Port Sports Village athletics track on Saturday June 23rd, between 4pm and 7pm.
The weather forecast for Saturday is good, so we should have a great day to enjoy a range of activities, It might be an idea to bring along suitable footwear and your own food if you have special dietary needs, as well as your own chairs and picnic blankets.
Sandwiches, cakes, tea, coffee and soft drinks will all be provided, but you can also bring along crisps, nibbles and a flask. The plan for the afternoon is:
4:00pm Arrival
4:30pm Sack races
5:00 – 5:30pm Break for tea/ picnic
5:30 – 6:00pm of rounders
6:00-7:00pm Relay races
7:00pm Tidy up.
Parents and helpers at the club wanting to provide back-up to our graded officials are being asked to sign up to attend an officials course scheduled to be held at Ellesmere Port Sports Village later this year.
Anyone who has considered being a field judge, track judge, timekeeper, starter, or marksman can take that first step by emailing Dennis at: [email protected]
Club coaches Tim Durrant and Ian Ackroyd want to raise awareness to all young female club members about assessing their iron levels by having blood tests.
Articles recently written by athlete Bobby Clay about her training and health issues have flagged up warnings and the need for our female athletes aged between 13 and 17 years old to monitor their health. Ian and Tim will provide more details if asked.
