Many thanks to the members of the club who turned up for the Annual General Meeting, held as always at Alnwick Bowls Club, on Wednesday 16th October. No doubt spurred on by the promise of a Turnbull’s buffet a good proportion of members attended. The AGM was hosted by Chairwoman Sue BOLAM and speeches of varying lengths were given by Secretary Jim LILLICO, Junior Secretary Diana WEIGHTMAN and Treasurer Stuart CARTER.
Stepping down from the committee this year are Angie EMBLETON and Janet MURPHY. Many thanks to both for all their work on the committee. New members are Stuart MORRIS and Cris ATWELL. Welcome aboard to both. Tracey SAMPLE is staying on the committee but has handed over the Membership Secretary role to Anne ALLAN.
Once the official stuff was over our coveted Gold, Silver and Bronze awards were dished out. These were introduced a few years ago to encourage Harriers to take part in more races and seem to be working! Qualifying events are all races in which members entered as Alnwick Harriers, from 5k to marathon, as well as cross country, trail and fell races. The qualifying period is between 1st October 2012 and 1st October 2013. Well done in particular to Bruce CROMBIE for taking part in a huge 42 races. Bruce has maintained a good level of consistency throughout the year and has won his age category on numerous occasions.
GOLD (more than 20 races)
SILVER (12 to 19 races)
BRONZE (8 to 11 races)
Well done to everyone!
