Many thanks to all the club members who turned up for last nights Alnwick Harriers AGM at Alnwick Bowling Club. Also thanks to Turnbulls of Alnwick for the lovely spread!
The committee would like to reiterate our thanks to everyone who has helped out at this years very successful events, namely the Harrier League fixture in March, Les Allcorn 10k in June and the Northumberland Coastal Run in July. Also to the coaches both in the Senior and Junior sections. During the AGM Stuart CARTER was presented with a commemorative framed Harriers vest to thank his company, Eclipse Translations, for their continued sponsorship of the Coastal Run.
The current committee would like to welcome aboard new committee members Anne ALLAN, Charlie GILLON and John ROSS. We would also like to thank former Chairman Keith SUTTON, Louise CALLAGHAN and Peter KULL who are stepping down from the committee.
One of the main points discussed last night was the increase in England Athletics fees from 2013. Unfortunately the increase will have to be passed onto all members, with Junior subscritions going to £25 and Seniors paying £20. Plans are afoot to bring in an additional small fee per coached Junior session from next year. However the fee has yet to be announced and there will be a further update at a later date.
The dates were also announced for the Christmas events, the Paarlauf and Handicap. The Handicap will take place on Sunday 16th December and Paarlauf on Wednesday 19th December. There will be further information on the website and noticeboard soon.
As with last year the Most Improved Awards, Achievement Awards and Grand Prix Awards will be awarded at the Christmas Party at The Plough on Saturday 1st December. We hope to see many of you there!
