We return from our Easter shutdown on Thursday 2nd May, 2019 and will welcome a number of newcomers to replace Alex, Olly, Archie, Daniel and Finn who have moved up to the 9 – 11 year group.
We are confident that these guys will do well and wish them good luck in their new group.
CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS/PARENTS/HELPERS
Ever thought about how you can help out at our meetings?
Without people to supervise events we have no meetings.
Would you like to know more about how you can help?
As a club we have to provide Track officials, time keepers and field officials.
Interested in what you can do next to help?
Derek Prince firstname.lastname@example.org
Ian Smith email@example.com
NB. If you want to get serious and get qualified as an official RSCAC will pay the cost of the course. Or if a case of just having an interest come and speak to either of us or drop us an email.
