Well done to all who competed in the Leinster Championships recently and many congratulations to all who qualified for the upcoming Nationals. Lots of super performances in a variety of events and a great selection of medals & qualifiers to the All Ireland’s as a result!
Well done to all our club athletes who competed at the recent County Championships and a huge ‘Thank You’ to all the coaches & officials who made it all possible. Considering the large number of athletes in the club, athlete attendance numbers were disappointing, but what we lacked in numbers was more than made up for by the enthusiasm and effort put in by all those who did attend.
The Wicklow County Championships are fast approaching and all club athletes need to get their entries in asap to allow time to process them. Closing date is this coming Wednesday May 8th and events take place on Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May, starting at 11am each day. Please check the timetable of events, which you will find on the sidebar of our website www.greystonesac.com and put your entry in early. You will find the entry form on our website also and entries must be submitted by Wednesday at the very latest.

ATTENDANCE AT TRAINING
A number of athletes have had very poor attendance recently and should note the club rule, 'Athletes who don't attend for three weeks or more without contacting us re injury/illness, are deemed to have left the club'. Places are then given to those on our waiting list & those who wish to return will have to go back on to the waiting list.
