Changes to classification of club records
The committee have agreed a few minor changes to the way records are presented, as recommended by the Club Statistician.
The official list of state records is unchanged except that we have added the 1000m.
Currently there is a list of “non championship event state records” and this will now be split into two lists. The first is the obsolete records. The second is for the remainder which will now be called State Bests, not records. So we will only have “records” where courses are certified and walks are judged. Certificates will not be given for new State Bests.
If members think they may have broken a State Best they should inform the Statistician.
The records and bests are updated on the website every April, so as to include performances in the State and National Track and Field Championships.
Anyone referring to new records should always use the word “pending” until they know for certain that the record has been ratified.
Reminder – Membership Renewal now due
Membership fees are due for renewal on 31st March. Membership form is on the website (see Membership box above). On-line renewal is preferred. Members without internet access will receive a membership form by post in the near future.
Parts 4 and 5 of Joan Pellier’s fascinating history of the club are now on the website. Go to Historical Publications on the Archives tab.
And so its finally done – Joan Pellier has finished her story of thirty years in the club. It shows what an amazing journey we have all had over the years and how, with our new and younger members to continue our aims and objectives, the club is in good hands for the future.
