At home meet #18 we said goodbye to our four U17 athletes Lara Ellis, Abbie Stribling, Sarah Watson and Alastair Thorpe. All four athletes leave us as life members and Sarah becomes our third dual life member, completing 14 consecutive years with GGLAC. We wish them all the best and hope to see them back at the club supporting younger siblings and/or coaching.
Our AGM and Athlete presentation event is on Saturday 27 March at Tilley Reserve. Please arrive from 9.15am so we can get underway at 9.30am. The AGM and presentations will be held at the far end of the reserve near the playground area weather permitting. If the weather is not kind to us, we will set up the event in Tilley Hall. Please bring your own chairs for the outdoor event.
Of most importance is the holding of the Annual General Meeting. At the AGM, ALL committee positions become vacant and whilst the existing committee have predominantly been the only ones to renominate each year, that will not be the case at the end of this season with many of the current committee not returning next season as their athletes have finished their little athletics journey.
In order for Golden Grove Little Athletics Centre to continue to be one of the best and biggest Centres in SA, we need many new parents to step up and join. To see all the roles that need filling, go to the Committee page on our website and download our Committee Role description and objectives document.
Whilst we do not want to sound dramatic, the reality it that without quite a few new parents joining the committee and performing the other roles there is a strong chance that GGLAC will not run effectively next summer!
To be a part of next season’s committee or to perform another non-committee role, download the Committee Nomination Form and return the completed form either to a committee member on Saturday or at training, by email or bring it along to the AGM.
If anyone has good condition secondhand GGLAC uniform items, athletics shoes or athletics equipment they would like to sell or giveaway, we now have a Facebook group page for you to advertise your items.
Please familiarise yourself with the rules of the group before posting items.
