A note for those people who are attending the club’s presentation evening, this Saturday. There is a slightly different order to proceedings: Doors will open at 7 pm. On the tables you will find Franks Quiz to peruse over & complete by around 8 pm. Also during this time, we will be selling raffle tickets. After 8 pm, we will announce the quiz & raffle winners. Then we will commence with all of the awards. To finish, the buffet will be open for business (not forgetting the delicious ice cream!).
Chris Betts from the Track & Field North East Grand Prix (NEGP) has been in touch with the club.
He is kindly requesting support for the forthcoming NEGP season. He is requesting that all clubs (including Elswick Harriers) and whose members participate in the North East Grand Prix (NEGP) meetings on Wednesday evenings to kindly provide two field helpers on ONE NIGHT ONLY to help with the running of these popular events. So if you can help on a event evening, then just get in touch with anyone of the committee members. Thank you.
Chris goes on to say that: this years NEGP presentation evening (on October 1st) nearly ALL local clubs have at least one representative claiming an award. The NEGP rewards athletes from just about ALL local clubs. Enclosed for your information is a program of events & the rules > NEGP Track Field Programme 2018 Rules of the league 2018 .
A note on entry fees: Due to cost increases, the entry fee for the first event is to be being increased to £4 and for all other events an athlete competes in that night the fee remains at £3.
