BWFAC INTERCLUB RACE WEDNESDAY 05.05.17


"It is that time of year again when we are looking forward to the start of the Inter Club season. As usual BWFAC are hosting the first race on in Stanley Park.

We require marshals and lots of food for the post race buffet as there could be 150+ people to feed. If anyone can help marshal please can you let either Karen Dunford or Andrea Smith know. You can do this either in person, via someone else or by text to 078 9106 8151 (Karen) or 077 5440 8463 (Andrea) . Marshals will need to be at the main entrance to the park for a 6.30 p.m. briefing and help is needed for about 1Ĺ hours as the race should be over for 8.00 p.m.

Food should be taken to Blackpool Cricket Club
either before or after the race. The start is adjacent to here but note parking is limited so please use the Sports Centre
or Cafe Car Park but not the main drive leading to the cafe as this is required for the start/finish area. IF YOU DO PARK IN THE PARK PLEASE REMOVE YOUR CAR AFTER THE RACE AND BEFORE THE PRESENTATION AS THE PARK WILL BE LOCKED SHORTLY AFTER THE EVENT.
Thanks very much for your anticipated help, you havenít let us down yet.

For those competing Race Numbers (to be kept for each race of the series) will be available from Laura Lawler from about 6.00 p.m. onwards. Please do not leave collecting your number until the last minute. If you are not on the list that is on the Club website you will need to register and obtain a number. All club members are welcome - and encouraged - to take part from age 14+.

Click here for information on the Coordinator's role.

MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION


Please read this important message from Membership Secretary Nick Hume:
"It is more important than ever that Club Membership fees are paid sooner rather than later, as England Athletics (EA) and Competition Providers are checking whether athletes are affiliated and the Club does not pay EA until the relevant Membership fee is received.

It is vital that we avoid the situation that arose last year when some athletes were disqualified in T&F competition because of unpaid fees. Details of BWFAC's membership fees can be viewed here.

Regards.

Nick."
