Week Ahead – Sunday 23rd February 2020

Afternoon All,

A big week in the club calendar coming up, as we have our Annual General Meeting on Thursday and another exciting Peco race at the weekend; but before I launch into the detail, I wanted to thank you for continuing our reputation as a friendly club.

We’ve had quite a few email enquiries and several new runners joining us recently, and its been nice to see your warm welcome has resulted in several joining the club.

You’ll probably be pleased to learn this is my last push to remind everyone that we really need you to join us at the AGM.
We need a quorum for the meeting.
As an incentive, anyone who didn’t receive their well earned medal or trophy at the awards evening can collect it on Thursday.
The bar is open and we have pizza!

It’s also a chance to meet all of the committee members too, and discuss running plans for the year ahead .

Talking of which, here is the plan for the week.
