Valley Striders Athletics AGM - Tuesday 1 November

We've been working over the last 3 months to put together a new VSAC organisation such that the workload is spread more widely amongst our club members.

We now have at least 3 club members signed up to look after each of the aspects of the club (except for race organisation), see http://valleystriders.org.uk/2016OrganisationSummary.doc . If you want a bit more detail of what each team does, see http://valleystriders.org.uk/2016RoleSummaries.doc . Other discussion documents are linked at www.valleystriders.org.uk/vsconst.htm.

If you want to find out more about these teams, please email committee@valleystriders.org.uk . If you want to join one of these teams, either email the same address and/or come to the AGM on 1 November.

Peco Cross Country

Thank you to the 90 seniors and 10 juniors who have put their names forward.

We apologise for rushing you. The actual deadline is 30 October but as Myra is co-ordinating this and is on holiday from the middle of this week, we set an earlier date for you to reply.

So, entries are still open and your deadline is now 11:59pm Saturday 29 October.

Please email teams@valleystriders.org.uk if you want to run.

Then (seniors) please transfer 3 to Sort Code: 53-70-00 A/c Number: 72143851 to cover the cost to enter the series, including the race number. Please include your name and PECO as a reference.

Please note that "just" paying is not sufficient as I will not be monitoring the AC Payments account this week, nor will I be monitoring the VSAC Facebook group.

For more details of the dates, venues etc see last week's email www.valleystriders.org.uk/up161016.htm

Membership Fees (including juniors)

Many more payments have arrived this week, thank you! If you've not yet paid, see last week's email www.valleystriders.org.uk/up161016.htm for details.
