2012 Road Race Championships
Nov 25, 2011, 11:10 am

The winners of the 2011 Road Race Championships will be officially announced at the AGM.  Well done to everyone who took part in the selected races throughout the year.


If you have any suggestions for alternative races for the 2012 Championships do let the committee know at the AGM next week.  As a guide, they should be races which are fairly local to Fleet to encourage greater participation.

As you are aware the AGM is scheduled to take place next week on Sunday November 20th – starting at 7.30pm.  It is at the Willis Hall, Sandy Lane, Church Crookham – opposite the Wyvern Pub.  Don’t forget to print off the previously circulated papers if you want copies with you as extras will not be provided on the night.


If you won a trophy at the 2010 AGM, please make sure you clean it and return it either to the club hut or contact Debbie Pagan directly (email – Debbie.pagan@virgin.net).  We need to make sure we have all trophies returned before the night please.  They have started to come in but there are still some outstanding.


If you want to engrave any trophies you have won please do so but this is self-funded.


Also we are looking for some volunteers to bake some cakes for the AGM.  Tea/coffee/squash will be available free of charge and hopefully some cake!  If you are able to bake a cake, please let me (Penny) know.  There have been a few offers but more are needed.  If you don’t like baking, you can always donate one from Waitrose or similar.


We will have a few high viz bibs available next week @ £5.25 each – these are the remaining stock before we order some with the club name on them.  Also available will be the CoCo ID tags to go on your trainers – a minimum £1 donation to the charity is required for these.  These tags are a simple idea but could give all the vital details someone might need in an emergency.  We also hope to have some samples of the new club t-shirt.


Please make every effort to come along to the AGM.  It is an important meeting to not only celebrate success but also to raise your ideas and socialise with your club mates.

Fancy doing a relay?
Jul 9, 2011, 5:06 pm

Bracknell Forest Runners are organising The Bounders Relay. Tuesday 19th July starting at 7pm in Crowthorne Woods, behind Broadmoor Hospital.


Teams of 4 runners and each leg is only 2.5 miles. Each team must contain a vet (35+ for female and 40+ for male). Teams can be single sexed or mixed.


Entry fee is £8 per team (so only a couple of quid each). We need to let the organisers know asap how many teams we will enter. Email Penny if you are interested and we will try and put some teams together.

Aldershot Track Sessions
Jul 9, 2011, 5:04 pm

The sessions on a Monday with Farnham Tri and HRR will now be every week. However they will alternate track one week and the Queen’s Avenue field the following week. Paul Smith from Farnham Tri will be alternating these sessions with Ali Wigg.

Half Marathon 'Thank You' Lunch
Jul 9, 2011, 4:54 pm

Saturday week ago saw the main organisers and key helpers have a “thank you” buffet lunch and drinks at The Tweseldown pub. It was lovely to be able to spend some time with everyone and just say thank you for the time and effort they all put into organising this event in March.

It is too easy to forget that the time taken to organise such events is voluntary and without these club members we wouldn’t have these events. Thank you once again from me – I hope you enjoyed the catch up.

If anyone would like to get involved with the 2012 event and wants to have an informal chat about it – do give me (Penny) a call on 01256 816249 or email pka_abbott@yahoo.co.uk.

QEB Update
Jul 9, 2011, 4:44 pm

As part of our on-going discussions with the Parish Council regular meetings are taking place. Ray Gascoyne and Stacey Marshal are representing the club on the QEB development meetings and reporting back to the main committee on how things are going and decisions which need to be made.


The most important factor is that we secure ourselves a permanent base for the future, whether this is a grass track or synthetic. This needs to have adequate changing and storage provision as well as being suitable for junior training. An all weather surface is obviously the ideal but there are many things which need to be considered with this option for example, initial investment (in the region of £750k for a full facility), fund raising, annual maintenance costs, management responsibilities, UKA policy for track locations in terms of closeness to other facilities etc. There is a long list of considerations.


These things will take time to iron out but you can be sure that the Club Committee is working hard to secure the best and most realistic solution for the club. You will be kept informed as progress is made in whatever form it takes.
