All club members, family and friends are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting on Thursday 21st March 2013 in Carrick Knowe Church Hall, Saughton Road North commencing no later than 7.30pm (Please note this is the same venue as last year. Please do not arrive before 7.15pm as we do not have use of the hall until this time).
After a few formalities, there will be a prize giving and presentation of records of achievement (the section most enjoyed by our younger members). The evening is then rounded off with some well deserved refreshments. Club kit will also be sold and orders taken on the night.
Prizegiving ~ the current holders of club awards are listed below and this year’s recipient for each category will be revealed at the AGM:
Junior Female Athlete of the Year – currently Hannah Addison.
Junior Male Athlete of the Year – currently Daniel Johnston.
Senior Female Athlete of the Year – currently Megan Smith.
Senior Male Athlete of the Year – currently Ian Johnston.
Ron Anderson Trophy – Currently held by Dermot Cummins.
Any proposals should be submitted to the secretary in writing by Thursday 14th March 2013.
We will also be electing Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary. All Office Bearers are standing for re- election with the exception of Sheena Anderson who is retiring from the post of Treasurer after 23 years of service. We are therefore looking to appoint a new Treasurer however nominations will be accepted for any of these posts. Nominations and any items for inclusion in the agenda should also be with the secretary by Thursday 14th March 2013.
We would also ask that you give some thought to anyway in which you can assist the club. A number of people put a lot of time into the day to day running of the club and there are numerous smaller jobs that need to be carried out to ensure the club runs smoothly e.g. simple things like taking a turn at washing the vests from the vest bag after a meeting. We are also in desperate need of qualified Officials as without them our athletes will not be allowed to compete in the summer Track and Field leagues we take part in. This would mean attending a one day course and then being asked to officiate at a couple of Track and Field Meetings each year. This is not a massive time commitment and would mean so much to our athletes. If this interests you or you are able to help in anyway please speak to one of the Office Bearers or Coaches.
