Club Presentation Night 21st November

Guess you have all had the email invite from the club.  If OK with Mike I think we will do ours again at the Christmas meal, although I will stand up and read out the winners and categories at the club night as I believe a few of us are going to that as well..... it's lovely seeing what the youngsters have achieved.


Christmas Meal

Friday 27th November at The Crown at Rumwell

Choices and money please by Tuesday 17th November


London Marathon Place

Once again the goalposts have been moved by VLM and we only have one place this year (we would need over 100 over 18s to get another place).  Please let me know if anyone would like to be considered for a place to go in the hat drawn at Christmas meal.  Criteria is that you have been an active club member for a minimum of a year.


Wellington Monument

Please keep the 20th December free guys.... all hands on deck !!!

Also Rich Caburn is getting info on Facebook and Twitter.... so if anyone understands this social media stuff could you 'like' or 'trend (or whatever it is called!) and pass on to everyone you know!  This is the first year that there has not been a stand alone WM webpage, all now going through the club website... so we need to steer people towards it.  Also in their wisdom they are having the SW XC Champs at Bicton that same day .... so we are going to have to pull out the stops to get our race out there guys!

Pauline Beer did Cardiff Half.... 1.37.19

Emma Rathbone did Burnham Half... 1.49.05
