WCAC Newsletter #190, 28-09-18

The first Cross Country meeting of the season takes place this Saturday (29th September), at Knights Grange, Winsford, with the opening round of the North Staffs League.
The Winsford course is less challenging than most of the other courses we face so, if you’re thinking of giving cross country a go, this is a good starting point.
More details can be found here.

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 book on the course here.

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

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 Annexe (Old Sportshall) this Saturday. Please register at the track office first at 10am. Further details from Dennis Wall at: dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com
