Welcome back! We hope you all have had a wonderful and restful summer thus far. As previously communicated, unforeseen delays to the completion of the Moorabbin Track upgrade has forced a re-assessment of our plans for regular competition over the second half of the season.
For competition this Saturday the 20th of January, the club has made arrangements to compete at the vacant Brighton LAC grass track (Dendy Park, East Brighton). This event is a normal regular competition to our normal Saturday program, just at a different venue.
The following week is the Australia Day weekend and a competition break for the State Multi Event. Arrangements for regular competition in February are advancing and will be communicated as soon as confirmed.
We understand these outcomes for competition in the second half of the season is far from ideal and we appreciate the patience of our membership while we try and manage the shifting circumstances that are presenting.
GETTING TO BRIGHTON ATHLETICS TRACK
The Brighton Athletics Track is in the North-East corner of Dendy Park, East Brighton. The track is accessed via Breen Drive off Dendy St. Parking is available in and around the Dendy Park precinct.
Program C this week. The program can be accessed by clicking here. The program is to commence at 8:30am as normal with On-Track U6 at 9am. Please aim to arrive early to ensure we can get off to a good start.
Please note, committee representatives are meeting at Brighton tonight and we will be drafting a layout map to identify the field venue locations for distribution in hard copy on Saturday.
All attending parents will be asked to assist with duty on Saturday. Set up will commence at 7:30am, and any earlier arrivals will be appreciated.
All parents, please see Andrew at the duty desk upon arrival to check in and be allocated duty.
Pack Up – All age groups will be rostered on once per season. This means that if your child is in the rostered age group, you will be required to assist packing up all the club equipment. Listen to the ground announcements for instructions. Rostered for pack this week is the U10 Boys and U10 Girls age groups.
STATE MULTI COMPETITION
Registration for the State Multi Event Competition to be held at Casey Fields on Saturday and Sunday the 27th and 28th of January is now closed. We wish all competing athletes the best of luck and hope you enjoy what is traditionally a very fun and jam-packed weekend of Athletics.
For those who are competing. Athletes attendance and marshalling will be expected to be arranged and coordinated by individual athletes and their parents. Caulfield will have a club marquee set up for shelter and socialising, look out for the club colours and flag.
A reminder that uniform requirements are very strict at SMR and State Competitions and only official club colours for singlet/crop top and shorts will be accepted. Shorts must be navy blue and contain no pockets or advertising logos. Subway patches must be worn. Tops must contain the new Coles Sew on Badge.
Training needs for the second half of the season are now under review and an update will be provided as soon as possible. In the meantime, training will resume as planned next Monday at the Duncan McKinnon grass oval. Training times for next week at Duncan McKinnon are:
- Monday 22nd of January, 5:30pm to 6:30pm
- Wednesday 24th of January, 5:30pm to 6:30pm
- Thursday 25th of January, 5:30pm to 6:30pm
That is all for now. See you on Saturday (at Brighton!!).
Go Team Caulfield!View Post
