The 2010 Annual General Meeting of the club will be held at 8 pm in the club room on Thursday 2nd DECEMBER.
All paid up members of the club are encouraged to attend the AGM as it is an important occasion and the opportunity to hear about the activities of the club in the past year, to ask questions and to make decisions about the future.
In the McCain Liverpool Cross Challenge yesterday, Sunday 28th November, Cardiff's Adam Bitchell (569), who is a student at UWIC, was looking for a top 6 finish to book a place in the Great Britain Under 20 team for the European Cross Country Championships in Portugal in December.
Adam ran with the leaders for the first lap and stayed in contention until the last 500 metres. He was sixth entering the finishing straight, but slipped to seventh in the run in, clocking the same time as the sixth placer.
The coaching conference to be held on Sunday next, 5th December, at Cardiff's National Indoor Athletics Centre (NIAC) has extended the closing date for applications to 30th November - TUESDAY NEXT.
The conference will cover a wide range of events, with well known expert speakers as well as practical sessions.
2010 has certainly been an outstanding year for Cardiff AAC with team and individual highlights coming thick and fast.
The big question was whether the club’s teams could match their great results of the year before. The Young Athletes’ League team could expect to find it tougher in the higher division whereas the British League team would do well to hold its place in the National Division 1, being newly promoted. On the other hand, the UK Women’s League team wanted to get back into Division 1 and the National Junior League team also wanted to regain its place in the league proper.
The high regard in which current Cardiff AAC Membership Secretary Kath Elias is held in schools' athletics was further underlined at last Saturday's Welsh Schools Annual General Meeting in Llandrindod Wells.
Having served a three term as the association's Vice Chairman, Kath was installed with the Chairman's chain of office as she succeeded Gwilym Williams MBE in the post, which she will hold for two years.
GB International long jumper Chris Tomlinson will be visiting the club on Thurday week, 25th November to offer advice to Cardiff AAC athletes and coaches.
He will be at our stadium from around 6.30pm until 9.00pm and you don't need to be a long jumper or long jump coach to join in.
Chris took the bronze medal at this year's European Championships and, with a best leap of 8.29m (which was the British record), has a wealth of knowledge and experience to impart.
Cardiff's Leila James will be taking part in the Miss Great Britain contest which takes place at The Grand Pier, Western Super Mare on Saturday the 4th December.
There will be 60 contestants in all.
To vote for Leila text Miss Cardiff to 81118 or call 09012937937 and, when connected, enter 11.
