MID-LANCS T&F LEAGUE UPDATE 30.06.16


Dear Athletes, Coaches and Team Managers,

Please note important changes to fixtures this season.

1. The fixture at Edge Hill University, Ormskirk, on 30th July has been brought forward to Saturday 23rd July. The reason for this is that important electrical work is now scheduled for Edge Hill on 30th July and was likely to at least cause significant delay to the start of our meeting.

2. The Medal Meeting scheduled for Saturday 27th August
has been moved to a different venue: - to
Leigh Sports Village. We are grateful to Leigh Harriers for accommodating us on 27th August.

Important information for club members:

Can I also take this opportunity to remind Team Managers that competitors on Saturday 2nd July at Lancaster need to hold a current registration with England Athletics? Many athletes who were registered last year were given until 30th June to pay club subs and the EA Registration Fee this year and so will have successfully passed registration checks so far this season. Inevitably some will be unaware or will miss the 30th June deadline and are therefore not eligible to compete from 1st July.

Ron Scott
General Secretary
Mid-Lancs League

From club secretary Nick Hume:

"BWF AC is seeking a number of Volunteers and two Volunteer Coordinators to assist with the smooth running of the club.

Click here for information on the Coordinator's role.

MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION


Please read this important message from Membership Secretary Nick Hume:
"It is more important than ever that Club Membership fees are paid sooner rather than later, as England Athletics (EA) and Competition Providers are checking whether athletes are affiliated and the Club does not pay EA until the relevant Membership fee is received.

It is vital that we avoid the situation that arose last year when some athletes were disqualified in T&F competition because of unpaid fees. Details of BWFAC's membership fees can be viewed here.

Regards.

Nick."
