WCAC Newsletter #188, 14-09-18

Every member of the club is being urged to make this Sunday’s Essar Guilden Sutton 10k Road Race a big success story.

The main race starts at 11am and a lot of members not competing have kindly agreed to volunteer as race marshalls around the course or as helpers in and around the village hall.

A one mile fun run will take place on the day at 12.15pm (entry on the day) and medals will be awarded to all finishers.

It will be great to see as many members as possible turning out to support the club and the event.

Please try to help out because money made from the event will be invested back into the club to subsidise transport costs and competition fees.

Chairman, Andy Carter, and Cross Country Secretary, Peter Smith, have both confirmed they are standing down from their committee roles at the next AGM. The club would like to convey it’s thanks to them both for their time in office,

We now need to ensure the chairman and cross country secretary roles are filled, so if anyone is interested and wanting more details they should speak to Andy or Peter ASAP.

Any club member wanting to compete in this season’s Manchester Cross Country League is reminded that they need to submit their name and England Athletics number to Peter Smith two weeks before the opening round on Saturday, October 13. Peter can be contacted at: peteandcol@sky.com

Youngsters wanting to train for this season’s North West Sportshall Athletics League are being invited to attend the next training session at Ellesmere Port Sports Village Sportshall this Saturday. Please register at the track office first at 10am. Further details from Dennis Wall at: dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com

Parents Vikki Brett and Joanne Lark who look after club kit at the EPSV Track Office, have agreed to sell vests, crop tops and hoodies AFTER Tuesday night training sessions.

Payment can be made by cash or by cheque (made payable to West Cheshire AC).

Parents and helpers at the club wanting to provide back-up to our graded officials are being asked to support an officials course being hosted at Ellesmere Port Sports Village on Sunday, November 18.

Anyone wanting to be a field judge, track judge, timekeeper, or starter should contact Dennis Wall either at track training sessions or by email at: dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com

The club needs to strengthen it’s experienced unpaid volunteers and plan for the future if we want to remain in leagues and competitions.
