Coming to the end of the summer season
It seems strange to talk about coming to the end of the summer track and field season when we have had such a long period of dry and warm/hot days – with more to come if I have read the weather forecasts properly.
Having said that we still have a few matches to come. I write these notes before the Bank Holiday Monday Open Meetings at K2 and at Tonbridge – I will bring news of these meetings as soon as I can. And then next weekend we have the final league matches of the season.
On the evening of Friday September 2 we see our Under 15 athletes compete in the final Sussex Under 15 League match at K2, and then a couple of days later on Sunday September 4 we are back at K2 for the final of the Sussex Under 13 League.
And then the following weekend on September 10 and 11 we have the Sussex and Surrey Combined Events Championships at Sutton. There is still time to enter these championships, but you’ll have to be quick if you want to enter.
In late September and early October there are a couple of events that we arrange and where we always need help. I will say more about these events over the coming weeks, but please put the dates in your diary and try your best to be able to offer help.
Sunday September 25 – East Grinstead 10k race from Imberhorne School
This takes place in the morning and if you can help for a couple of hours that would be much appreciated. Speak to Lester Medcalf on 01342 315589 or firstname.lastname@example.org in the first place.
Sunday October 9 – Primary Schools Cross-Country Races at East Court
We will need help in the morning to set up the course and then from mid-day to help with the races themselves. We need most help from mid-day onwards. There is a note from Belinda Sims with more details on our facebook pages.
If you can offer help then contact either Belinda Sims (details on facebook) or Lester Medcalf as above.
