The AGM is Sunday 30th January. If you would like the chance to be on the 2011 committee you are very welcome to put your name forward for any role. If in the event that 2 or more people want the same role then a secret vote will be cast at the AGM
GB would like help in supervising T/T training due to his current work load. It would be great to see some new faces come forward to offer assistance.
The club have been granted 3 marathon places which will be drawn at the Xmas Do, so far MR has received 5 requests for those 3 places.
