This week we are off to Tea Tree Gully LAC for a Friday night twilight meet. This is our annual interclub with TTGLAC and is on Friday night at the Multi Event Championships are on Saturday and Sunday for competing U9-U17 athletes. This is just like a normal home meet except at TTGLAC (Program 2 on the calendar) and their athletes. We encourage everyone to go along and enjoy the evening.
Please be at Bulkana Oval, Spring Cres, Banksia Park by 6.30pm for announcements, in order for the meet to get underway on time!
The Age Group Roster does not apply this week. It will return Home Meet #14 on Saturday 4 February when it is the U6's on setup from 7.45am (at least 2 parents) and the U11's on the BBQ, at least two parents for each timeslot at 9.30-10.30am and 10.30-11.30am - names to be on the roster on the whiteboard prior to the commencement of the meet. If you have any queries please speak to a committee member.

We ask that parents please name clothing, hats and drink bottles so we can return items. If you need help sewing on this year's badges (and/or removing last year's), one of our parents, Jenny Ridley (Pins 'n' Needles) can remove old badges and sew on the new badges for a nominal fee. Please contact Jenny by email to find out more or speak to her at a home meet.
STATE MULTI EVENT CHAMPIONSHIPS - SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, 21 and 22 JANUARY
We have completed the Parent Allocation Roster for the Multi Event Championships being held on Saturday/Sunday, 21/22 January at SA Athletics Stadium, Marjorie Jackson Dr, Mile End. Please check your allocation times as everyone has at least two allocations on each day of their attendance. Unfortunately we were given many more allocations than athletes attending, basically on Saturday we have 20 athletes and 24 allocations and on Sunday, 14 athletes with 30 allocations!
Our Program page has all the other available information for the weekend's competition.
STATE RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS
We have selected our RELAY TEAMS for the upcoming State Relay Championships being held on Sunday, 12 Febrauary at SA Athletics Stadium, Marjorie Jackson Dr, Mile End. View the proposed Program to check your event times, please take note if there are heats and finals!
WE ASK THAT ALL NAMED FAMILIES PLEASE CONFIRM THEIR AVAILABILITY BY RETURN EMAIL BY FRIDAY 20 JANUARY. Please reply as it helps reduce the committee's workload on getting teams entered in this Championship event.
We are hopeful of organising teams for the U14 boys Field and U16 and U17 boys Track as we are one athlete short for each team. It is important that these families also confirm their availability so we can make an informed decision on those teams.
