Sometimes it isn’t all good News!

The Oktoberfest Winter Turbo Set Up session on Wed 25th has had to be cancelled due to work commitments of the vital members of the coaching team - sorry for the late notice!

Equally disappointing is the cancellation of the Awards Evening & Party Celebration planned for Saturday 25th November. Despite the best efforts of Cathy, Tim and others the response and advance ticket sales have been very poor. Whilst there are costs already associated with the event that need to be covered, making this decision now keeps those to within the budget limits that the Committee had set. Clearly we misjudged what we thought was a desire from members for a different style of social event borne out of the reduced numbers attending the Xmas Party over the last couple of years? Our thanks in particular to Cathy for the huge amount of effort she put into trying to bring this event to fruition - horses to water springs to mind….

I should also record my apologies to Mr & Mrs Coogan for the on time departure of the walk last Saturday that left them at Java & Jazz on their own! A muddy but glorious walk around Weir Wood was thoroughly enjoyable - and I’m used to walking by myself anyway….

The final event in this years Oktoberfest is EG Park Run on Saturday 28th October. I know some of you will already have done this event but for those who haven’t please make sure you register on the Park Run website before you turn up at East Court! Oh and make sure you have your off-road shoes with you…

Finally, the EG Aquathlon on Sunday 29th October needs your help either as a marshal (see Karen) or as a competitor - giving everyone someone to support in our own special way! Please also remember that the AGM takes place on Saturday 11th November at 9.00am in the Pavilion - free breakfast rolls and coffee should you need any further encouragement?

Train safe
