MID-LANCS XC 2016-17 INFORMATION


"This list contains the names of those who have been pre-registered with the Mid Lancs League for the 2016 - 17 cross country season.
If you are not on the list and wish to compete in the league please contact Nick Hume before September 17th.
Otherwise you can register on race day at the Mid Lancs tent, but you must have your England Athletics (EA) URN with you or risk disqualification. This does not apply to U11s who are not registered with EA.
All those who are pre-registered can collect their number from one of the BWFAC Team Managers at their first fixture. Numbers are kept for the season apart from the Liverpool race on Saturday 26th November which has a separate system of entry.
If anyone has any queries or questions about cross country please contact Nick Hume"



VOLUNTEER APPEAL 2016


From club secretary Nick Hume:

"BWF AC is seeking a number of Volunteers and two Volunteer Coordinators to assist with the smooth running of the club. The Coordinators will have responsibility for liaising with the Volunteers and the Committee/Event Organisers to ensure that tasks are completed as and when required. Click here for information on the Coordinator's role.

Advice and guidance will be provided to all volunteers. Click here for information on the Volunteer'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."
