NEXT HOME MEET (#12) IS ON SATURDAY 27 JANUARY

This week we are hosting the annual Australia Day Hurdles shield between GGLAC, Northern Districts Jets and Salisbury LAC. The meet will be run just like a normal home meet with points for all the Hurdles events with a boys shield and girls shield awarded to the club with the most points at the end of the meet.

The weather doesn’t look kind with the current forecast being in the 40’s (again). Whatever the forecast, the Meet will go ahead on Saturday with modifications to the program if needed.

This week we need parents from the following age groups:
U12 – 2 parents for SETUP from 7.45am
U9 – 2 parents to cook BBQ for each hourly session. Check the whiteboard for times.
ALL AGE GROUPS – The last age group on the event is PACK UP the event equipment and place in a neat pile to make it easy for us to collect at the end of the meet.

Please arrive and be ready to commence at 8.45am.

Unfortunately Barista in the Sun coffee van is still on holidays!

Season Member registered for the season – please collect your membership pack on arrival, if not already done so, and then head to your age group basket to tick your name on the results sheet in the chaperone’s folder.

Come and Try participants that have already registered online – We ask that you head to the come and try area where we will mark you off and put everyone in groups, or if you prefer, you are welcome to join your age group and join them for the program. Otherwise you will have a coach or committee member as your chaperone to take you around and explain how little athletics works and answer any questions you may have.

If you HAVEN’T registered online for either Come and Try or as a member prior to arriving you will need to head to the registration portal to complete your registration online at the laptop we will have there. As we will have limited laptops for this and the process can take a little while, you may be delayed and miss the start of the program whilst completing your registration. We are seeking your co-operation to register beforehand to avoid any delays on the day.

We would like to remind everyone that an adult MUST REMAIN AT TILLEY RESERVE during the competition, we refer to our Parent Participation Policy.

NEW SHOT PUT RINGS AND DISCUS RING

We have some good news for our members. We are pleased to announce that after many years negotiating with TTG Council we have now received approval to install 4 concrete Shot Put rings and 1 Discus ring at Tilley Reserve. We are now in contact with our contractors to install these rings. Given the proximity to Christmas we are hopeful they will be ready for use at the beginning of 2018. These rings will be funded from the Club’s savings which we have been accumulating for projects like this.
