We wish Jacob lots of luck when he represents his University, Swansea at the upcoming BUCS Championships on the 4-6 May.
A reminder to any athletes planning to enter the County Championships at Swindon on Sunday 12 May that the closing date for entries is this coming Friday 5th May. There are NO ENTRIES on the day!
For those members who live in our Kennet Area, the Kennet Area Trials are being held at Dauntsey's on Wednesday 15 May. This is where selection to go onto the County Schools at Swindon on Saturday8 June will take place. Those selected from Swindon will go on to represent Wiltshire Schools one week later on Saturday 15 June at Exeter.
Our Club now trains on Dauntsey's all weather track on Monday and Thursday evenings. From Sunday 19 May, there will be High Jump only sessions on Sundays from 10.30-midday
I am delighted to report that we are allowed to start training on Dauntsey's new tartan track! The Monday Group will be the first one to start back on Monday 8th April, usual time of 6.30-8pm - we may have to finish slightly earlier until it stays light long enough. For the first time since the club was formed, I am having to increase the session fee from £2 to £3. This is to cover the cost of hiring this wonderful facility. There are conditions we must adhere to until about 25th April and this is that we can only use the track and must stay off the infield. The school, quite rightly want to keep the track free from wet grass and mud until term time. Therefore we will only be doing sprints and middle distance and possibly the odd hurdles session until their summer term starts.
The Thursday Juniors group and the senior group which will follow on after it, will not start until the following Thursday 18 April.
Everyone should be paying their annual membership now.
