First thing this week is for me to take advantage of the News to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and successful 2016 – saved me a fortune on Xmas cards!

Belated thanks for attending the club AGM and can I remind anyone who volunteered at the time, or who's subsequently offered, to get in touch with me regarding the possible formation of a youth section. Currently the plan is to meet at some point in early/mid January and see how we can move forward.

I know some of you have probably already spotted that the WGP 20km Bike TT clashes with the EG Spring Aquathon on Sun 20th March! I will look into alternatives for the WGP event and let you know asap. In the meantime don't forget to get you entry in for the Vale Gallop on Sun 24 Jan – lots of fun in the cold and mud!

And talking of which, this in from Joan -

The run coaches (Me, Tom and Karen) are planning to lead the coached run next Saturday at Ashdown Forest for a pre Christmas celebratory club run. 

We want to gather at the leisure centre at 8.45 with aim of sharing cars to drive up to car park near Nutley Windmill.  Karen, Tom and I will all be there and will split into 1, 2 or 3 groups depending on who turns up.  Distance will be about 4 miles – but longer options available for those that want to go further.   Afterwards we plan to go to the Green Fingers cafe near Duddleswell for breakfast / cakes / tea / coffee.

It would be great if lots of members could join us – off road running shoes needed plus appropriate clothing for what is often a wet and windy run.  Christmas hats, tinsel, reindeer antlers are optional – but do add to the Christmas spirit.  For those intending to join us for breakfast, a change of clothing might also be useful.

We don’t need to know in advance who will be joining us for the run – but it would be good to know if anyone is planning to head to the cafe with us so that if the numbers are large we can give the café some warning. 

As you might expect there are some cancelled club sessions to tell you about (although feel free to do your own thing instead on any of the days!);

No swimming on; Thu 24th, Sat 26th or Thu 31st however, turbo goes ahead as planned on Wed 30th

That's probably it for now? Have a great Christmas!

Train safe (or at least only when sober)
