Kay Lydiard-13 September
There was a good turn out this year, the walking event prize was taken out by Don and Dianne, the running event by Paul and Patricia. There were some great times by teams, so well done to all.
The members draw continues to be a popular event, the odds are pretty good, much better than Lotto! The series starts at $100 and increases by $50 each week that it is not won, to a maximum of $500. Each member has equal chance of their number being drawn but to take away the prize you have to be there.
Tuesday night meals
As from 1st October, the subsidy for the meal will no longer be applied, this means that the cost for each meal will be $12.00, still a really good deal. So why not stay on for a meal with friends after your run or walk.
Your club needs you
We are fast approaching the AGM, this is the time of year when members get the chance to vote in the committee for the coming year. There will be several people who wish to retire from the committee, so if you are interested in supporting your club to continue to grow and flourish, please think about putting your name forward for one of the roles.
New Paint work in the men’s showers
We have the BNZ “Closed for good day” team to thank for the new paint job in the mens showers. The plan is for the work to be completed by Christmas, with the help of some volunteers, including joggers club members.
Next Beginners programme – Helpers needed
The start date will be Tuesday 1st November, it will be a 6 week programme aiming to get people up to being able to run 5km, as a fit for summer programme. We will be seeking volunteers nearer the time to support the programme. So come along and help other people “Get the Running Bug”
As in previous years, Auckland Joggers will be supporting the event by hosting the water stop under the harbour bridge. We will been putting out the call for volunteers soon, so put this one in you diary to be there and support the other runners and walkers.
