Follow up from the AGM…

AGM MINUTES

Please find attached a rather (ah-hem!) belated copy of the minutes from the AGM in March.

The evening was kept as informal as we could ;

* Saul was showing "running form" videos he’d taken earlier in the evening
* Steve provided us with free chips
* All done and dusted by 9pm

There were a couple of issues raised on the night (use of club funds to part subsidise running weekends and the winter handicap route) which were either concluded (weekends) or left outstanding and to be picked up by the committee over the coming weeks (Winter Handicap).

A summary of the minutes for the meeting which includes the accounts for the year can be found on this post from before the meeting.

OTHER STUFF

The committee would like to welcome on board new members EVERY YEAR. This is really important as it stops us becoming stale and keeps us in touch with how we are perceived from a new members point of view (very important!). We’d like to welcome Emma Nicol and Jo Coates on board this year. It’s never too onerous – meet up semi regular in a pub, discuss stuff on messenger, help out if you can – that’s it!

LADIES CAPTAINS

Furthermore, we’ve now gone from having no captains two years ago to having THREE this year! Whilst Andy Nash continues to motivate the chaps we can now welcome Ruth Keeley on board alongside Rachel Clare as womens captains. Great to have you on board Ruth – and if you’ve not been to her Thursday hill sessions – you must do as that’s where improvement starts!

ADDITIONAL "PRIVATE" FACEBOOK GROUP

Following the 2 incidents in March involving female runners, a decision has been taken to set up a new private FB group for runners looking to arrange runs but not in a public manner. Only members of the club will be allowed to join so it will give complete confidence for people to show the exact times and whereabouts of their meet locations. Watch this space.

Cheers for now
