The AGM took place a couple of weeks ago and it confirmed that the yearly training season tickets would be £100. Membership fees remain at last year’s levels, although the cost of affiliating with the sport’s governing body, UK Athletics, went up by a pound to £15. So this leads me onto the next item………….
…………..Membership Fees now due
A reminder that it’s time to pay your membership fees. They should have been paid by the end of March. If you aren’t sure how much your fees are then the recent newsletter will have told you.
Presentation evening last week
Thanks to Belinda Sims for organising our recent presentation and awards evening at East Grinstead Town Football Club. An enjoyable evening with Alf Smart’s quiz – though Colin Jackson wouldn’t have enjoyed being described as an Englishman – followed by one or two slightly silly games. And then the presentation of our various trophies as well as performance certificates to last year’s under 13 and under 15 athletes.
Open Meetings over the Easter weekend
Crawley are holding an open meeting this Sunday April 1 at K2 and Tonbridge will hold their open meeting on Easter Monday April 2. Look at both clubs’ websites if you need more information.
Less than 2 weeks to the first match of 2018
Just a reminder that our senior athletes have their first match in less than 2 weeks’ time when they go to Sutcliffe Park in Eltham on Saturday April 14. Team managers Eddie Vermeer for the men and Lester Medcalf for the ladies will be contacting our athletes with details of the match in the next few days.
