Our 3rd and final registration night for new athletes is tonight Tues 1st Oct from 5-7pm. Registrations close sharply at 7pm due to coaching commitments at this time. We are sorry, but after this date athletes who are not registered must be removed from the check-in sheets and will not be allowed on to the track as the trial period is now over and they will not be covered by our insurance. Reg/Ins fee for the remainder of 2013 is €20 for first family member and €15 for additional members. Cash/cheques only please, as the club doesn't have a card facility.
Please do not hand registrations in to the Shoreline reception, as the staff cannot accept them on our behalf.
The club shop will be open tonight Tues. 1st Oct. from 6-8pm. We have club singlets, shorts, t-shirts, rainjackets, hoodies etc. available. Athletes should have either a club singlet or T- shirt for competitions. All other items are optional. Bill Porter from Avondale Sports will also attend that night with a selection of runners & spikes and leggings.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE SIGNS AND ENTER BY THE BOTTOM DOOR FOR REG. AND/OR SHOP AND NOT THROUGH THE RECEPTION AREA!
PHOTOS FOR NEWSPAPER
As there was so much rain on the night we were trying to take the photos for the newspaper, they didn’t come out very well, so weather permitting we will try again tonight about 7pm. We would appreciate it if our 7-8.30pm athletes could check- in a few minutes early to facilitate this. We will gather on the top quadrant of the track to take the photos and hopefully just take a few minutes to get them done.
Well done to all the athletes who turnd out for the XC League last Fri night in Rathdrum. Club numbers were low, but there were some fine performances from those who attended and hopefully numbrs will grow for the rest of the series and for the Championships!.
