What a glorious day it’s turned out to be after such a miserable start!
Well done to everyone racing today, I know we had a championship fell race aptly named the Stanbury Splash and I believe we had some runners in the Brass Monkey race too.
If you’re reading this and you haven’t been down to the club for a while, well, we’re missing you!
Come on, you know the benefits of running with others even if its late, its cold, you’ve got a million and one other things to do. I promise you you’ll feel better afterwards!
So to make sure everyone is in the loop, last Wednesday we held a committee meeting with lots discussed so I thought I would briefly mention some items I think will be of interest to you.
Club Social Media.
A tricky subject but a couple of issues have arisen more recently, and actually over the years, regarding social media use by members. As a result next week I will outline a plan the committee have agreed to try to ensure our social media contact is predominantly running focused and friendly.
NVRR. Vests and clothing.
We are very close to changing our vest supplier to a company that can supply a better quality vest, and most importantly, for the ladies in the club – a specific women’s fit. More details will follow once we have things finalised.
Please buddy up with any new member or anyone coming along to try us out. Its always daunting when you’re new or trying something for the first time.
Annual General Meeting.
This is just a heads up that this will take place on Thursday 27th February 2020 in the bar of the hockey club after our usual evening run. Christina Taylor, our Club Secretary, will be forwarding information regarding this within the next 2 weeks.
Please put the date in your diary as we need as many people as possible to attend.
So, onto this week. W/C 13/1/20.
