A great night was had by all who attended the Wicklow County Star Awards last Friday. We would like to thank all those who provided the lovely sandwiches and cakes on the night and the Boylans for the great venue. Congratulations to all our award winners:

These four athletes also received awards as members of the junior squad who won the Leinster Dew Shield, along with Ellie Hartnett, Aisling McGee, Laura Boylan, Isabel Malley, Kellie Ryder, Cormac Hanlon and Ciaran Brady. AJ Cotter,one of our senior members, won 2nd place in his category of the Fit4Life league and the club won the overall Track & Field award for 2009.
· Very few athletes put their names forward for the indoor relays next weekend, but we will have a few teams there. We wish them luck along with our juniors and seniors, who will also be competing.

Both events are open to athletes from U12 up. No late entries accepted.

Registration and Insurance is now due for 2010. To keep up with rising costs, we will be increasing the fees to €25 for one , €45 for two and €65 for three or more family members.
The weekly contribution of €2 will remain the same. Registrations will be taken before training each night, this week. We will be asking everyone to fill out a new form as we want to update contact nos. and e-mail address in order to improve communication. All registrations need to be done before the end of Jan to renew our insurance cover.
Don’t forget we have a club shop on the first Tues of every month.
