A very warm weekend – and no athletics !
In contrast to last Sunday’s horribly cold weather we have had a very warm and dry weekend – but no athletics for our various teams. As part of my weekend off I did manage to sneak over to Chelmsford for a day of county cricket between Essex and Yorkshire.
Under 13 match (school years 6 and 7) on Thursday May 10 at K2
The evening midweek under 13 league has its first match this coming Thursday. Team manager Suzie Shelley has been contacting athletes about the match which starts at 7 pm and will finish at about 8.45. There will be no training for this age-group on Thursday evening and you should go to K2 instead. Athletes should aim to arrive at K2 by 6.15.
We could do with a couple of parents helping to manage the athletes on the day – making sure that the athletes know when their events are and making sure that they arrive for their events on time.
For some of the athletes this will be the first time they have competed in a club match and we wish them all well.
Sussex County Championships
Next weekend the Sussex Championships take place at K2 and we have a very good number of athletes entered – 24 athletes and 2 relay teams. Let’s hope the weather is friendly and we hope to see lots of pbs and a reasonable number of medals. We wish all of our athletes well.
Sussex Schools Combined Events Championships
These championships take place at K2 in the half-term week on Wednesday May 30. The local secondary schools seem to take no interest in these championships, but you can make your own entry by going into the Sussex AAA website. Last date for entries is Monday May 21.
Anybody in school years 7 up to 11 can enter and I understand that Cameron Wells has already entered.
Any queries please talk to Lester Medcalf.
