KON-E-CHI-WAH

A couple of years ago one of our stalwart (another word for MAD) runners took up a teaching post in Japan.
This little note was received via the website.
If you read this Jim ...
A MERRY XMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU.
FROM ALL AT THE CLUB.

"Oh, What A Night It Was, It Really Was"

Many thanks to Melanie Brennan for a great night out.
(must be worth a few points!)

It was a night of two halves:

QUASAR - This saw us charging around a darkened maze with things resembling sub-machine guns and trying to shoot your opponents as much as possible without getting shot yourself. We split into two teams (and our team won which we won't mention!).

Our OMM teams

Good luck to our teams in the OMM this weekend.

Neil/Matt and Phil/Nick are in the Long Score.
George/Anne are in the Medium Score.
Richard/Karen are in the Short/Score (but look like pulling out due to illness).
Cecilia/Caroline are in the C Class.

The Dartmoor mist will make things interesting.

Quaser and bowling night (Thur 4th Nov)

We are planning a quaser and bowling night.  Details from Mel below:

Date: Thursday 4th November (time to be decided)
Cost: £17.50

We get 3 games of quaser and bowling (i.e. 2 of one and one of the other).  We have suggested 2 quaser and 1 bowling, but we can work with whatever people prefer.

Food is also included.

Club Handicap 2010

Thanks very much to the seventeen who came along for our annual fun handicap race. After the usual moaning and groaning about start times everyone seemed to "enjoy" the race.

The well deserved winner this year was Matty Brennan who, not only finished first but started last!!! Can someone please devise a plan to slow him down ???

All results are in the "Championship" section.

Watch this space for a "new style" handicap next year

Pairs Championship 2010

Many thanks to all who took part in this year's competition.

Special thanks to Kevin Roughton and Anne Brownhill who turned out for every race.

Congratulations go to Kevin Roughton and Neil Weightman - tying for first place with 22 points each. Followed closely by Anne Brownhill in third place just one point behind on 23.

See you all again next summer.

Full scores are in the "Championship" section.

 

THE RUN 2010

Once again another excellent race with almost 100 competitors. Even the weather was kind.

Once again both male and female records have gone!

Bruce Rayside from Notts AC broke the twenty minute barrier with a superb 19:22.

Sarah Harris from Long Eaton RC was first lady with an impressivre 22:07.

All results are here

 

Karen at the European Heart & Lung Transplant Games

Karen Hodgson is competing in the European Heart & Lung Transplant Games from the 30th June to the 4th July in Växjö, Sweden.

She is competing for the UK in a variety of running and cycling events.

See details of the games here: http://www.ehltgames.com.

Good luck Karen, and we hope you are laden down with trophies on the plane home!

BG relay cancelled

Unfortunately we have to announce that the proposed Club relay attempt on the Bob Graham Round is now not going to take place this year due to an inability to arrange a date suitable for sufficient club members to take part. We hope to have another go at arranging this or something in a similar vein for next year.

XC Champs Final Placings

After a trying winter with all the trauma as to whether races would take place or if the weather finally won out the final race took place last Sunday at Darley Park. The points have been duly tallied all be it a slightly shortened championship winners have been decided.

Younger Division                             Tom Stokes

Older Division                                  Richard Hyde

Ladies Division                                Caroline Wickham

Well done to the three winners and thanks to all who entered this years races.

Cross Country Cancellation

Joining???

Hello!

I was born a week last Sunday and my name is Esmee Aroha Wendy Brennan.
My mum and Dad belong to your club... Am I too young to join as a family member??

 

all about "YOU"

We would like to create a section on the website where members can tell us all about themselves.

Just a couple of hundred words telling us your likes/dislikes, what you do for a living, hobbies, family, why you took up running, achievements, goals etc. in fact anything about YOU. A (publishable!) photograph would be welcome.

Please send your submissions to Richard or George in any format, bit of paper, disc etc. and we will sort it.

Thanks in anticipation.
