Gwent League 3 Tuesday 25 November 2014

Gwent League 2014

After more great Cardiff AAC performances at the second league match in Llandaff Fields we move on to the third Gwent League match on Saturday December 6th. These races will be held at Penlan Leisure Centre in Brecon where the course is relatively flat.

Last year we had lots of individual winners at the end of the season and won the prize for the top Junior Club – let’s see if we can do it again this year!

Please let the team managers know as soon as possible if you intend to take part.

There were long queues on the first days of term last time so, to avoid this and to secure your place, we strongly recommend that you confirm your place now.

Please contact Academy administrator Lyn Davies either in the club room on Monday or Thursday or by email to her at l.davies97@ntlworld.com. Payment of the Term's fee of £24 per Academy Member will need to be paid at the same time.

John Penny and Bernie Plain 2014

In opening the Annual General Meeting of the club, held last night in the club room, President Bernie Plain paid tribute to John Penny's long membership and service to the club in many roles. John (80) has decided to give up coaching and Bernie presented him with a memento of the club's appreciation.

Four distinguished members were elected as life members for their outstanding contributions: Alex Donald, Matt Elias, James Thie and James Williams. Each has made an important contribution as an athlete as well as in other ways to the successes of the club and their elections as life members were warmly received.

Officials Courses Thursday 20 November 2014

Being an official at an athletics meeting can be interesting and rewarding and it is not too difficult to become qualified.

Next week, Welsh Athletics is organising a course specially for Cardiff AAC members and friends who are interested to become officials. The course is over two evenings, next Monday 24th and Thursday 27th in the Cardiff International Sports Stadium, Leckwith and will be from 7pm until 9pm each evening. On Monday, general rules will be covered and Thursday will focus on field events.

The sport cannot operate without officials so we would encourage as many as possible to give it a try. Please contact Garry Jones (garryjones333@btinternet.com) as soon as possible.
