If you have a ticket please put your name on the back and bring them on the night to be entered into a prize raffle.

Track & 2012 Membership
During the 2nd half of 2011 the track fee's have increased due to more members turning up on a Monday night. The club currently pay £2.00 per member to Leigh Harriers for anyone using the track.
It will be discussed at the AGM ways to absorb this cost .. charging members £1.00 to use the track has been mentioned.
London Marathon Places
Currently (06/11) no member has put their name forward for a London Marathon place who meets all the criteria. We will give members another week to come forward but in the event of these places not being taken the committee will open it up to anyone who has previously taken a club marathon place.
Keep posted to the blog
The club discussed having a Tri Captain for 2012 which was approved by the members. The incoming Tri Captain will have the option of a committee place, again this will be voted at the AGM but anyone interested came make themselves known to the committee.
