A busy note Team Elswick! So let’s get started. Success at the Signals NECAA championships held at Hetton-le-Hole, Durham. Several teams from the club, were out in force and a hard fought silver medal came the way of the vet 40 men’s team of Paul, Jason, Martin, Mark, Steven and Lee in 75.42. Well done gents. Congratulations to every Elswick competitor on Saturday, grand stuff indeed! The over 50’s men’s team were a commendable 8th place in their category in 58.42 John, Mark, Harry & Steve made up the quartet. The senior womens team were also 8th in a packed field, once again a fine collective team run by Robyn, Gina Sarah & Samantha with a combined time of 56.52. The vet womens team also finished in the top ten, with Lindsey, Jill, Melissa and Arabella making up the foursome with a combined finishing time of 65.49. Amy, Joanne and Lalage ran as a team of three (a runner short) but nevertheless, they ran competitively in 54.08 as a 3 member team. Thank you to Dave Jardin for the photos.

The club’s annual presentation evening date has been set for SATURDAY 25th MARCH 2017. We will once again use the leisure centre as a venue, with awards, speeches, Frank’s famous quiz! quality raffle prizes and scrumptious food to keep us all going! You have all been hugely supportive in recent years and the committee are confident 2017 will be no different, a grand night & packed venue awaits us all! The venue is limited to 100 places, so it will be first come first served. We don’t have a social secretary to co-ordinate the presentation evening, so ticket sales we envisage will be done on “trust”. Numbers will be collected informally on the club’s Facebook page & using a hand-written list located on the club’s noticeboard. Payment of tickets will be collected on the evening & on the door. Confirmation of final details will follow asap. Place that 25th March in your calendar! Thank you 🙂
