Development Of A Running Track
Hope you have all got off to a flying start in 2017 and that it will be a successful and enjoyable year for all Club Members.
The question of the development of a running track has come up a number of times over the past couple of years.
In order to determine what level of support and commitment there is among members for such a development we are holding a meeting on
Tuesday, Jan 31st at 8.00pm in My Place (on the Mill Road, Midleton).
You are ALL Invited and Encouraged to Attend.
The purpose of the meeting is twofold:
1. To find out the level of interest and support among members for developing a running track
2. To select and appoint a small group of members (4 to 6 people) who would be willing to carry out a feasibility study to look at all options open to the Club and report back in, say, 3 to 4 months, with their findings.
If you have an interest in such a development it is important that you attend this meeting and express your views.
If you cannot attend, but would be willing to get involved, please contact any committee member to let them know in advance.
Hope to see you there.
Senior Club AGM
The Adult Club will hold its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, Feb 7th at 8.00pm in My Place (on the Mill Road, Midleton).
The purpose of the meeting is, primarily, to elect (or re-appoint) Club Officers and Committee Members for the coming year.
Anna Doris, Club Captain for our 50th Anniversary Year of 2016, has decided to step down, having put in Trojan work during the past year. Anna was also Club Treasurer. She will not be making herself available for re-election.
As you know, the day-to-day running of our Club does not happen automatically and depends on the support and goodwill of members to get involved and play an active part in ensuring the ongoing success and development of the Club. The more people who are willing to get involved as officers or committee members, the less workload on any individual and the more enjoyable the experience. We would particularly like to see new faces volunteering – as this brings new ideas and energy, essential for Club development.
You are ALL invited and encouraged to attend.
If anyone is interested in playing a role, as an officer or committee member, please let any of the current committee know in advance, if possible.
Message from Committee Member Edmond O'Sullivan
“Members….come on, enough of the hurling on the ditch,,, now is your chance to get in there and make things happen!! As with any club, a healthy turnover at the top table is absolutely essential in keeping our club alive, alert, responsive, dynamic and, most importantly….FRIENDLY and FUN. This is your club, your hobby, your social crutch….so why not do your bit!! Have a chat with any of the committee members and/or turn up for our AGM……and no it is most definitely not a stuffy formal them and us type of AGM!!! “ Edmond
