Awards Presentation and AGM Sat 8 June 2019 at Scarborough from 2:45pm

Dear members

I formally advise that after our Womens Club Championships we will be holding our AGM and Awards Presentation, details as above. For the benefit of newer members, the Awards are for the 2018 Cross Country and 2018/19 Track & Field season. We then celebrate with afternoon tea, so please bring a plate of food to share.

The Annual General Meeting involves the presentation of various reports and the election of the Committee. The existing committee stands down, and may re-nominate. This year we have two vacancies. Members are always entitled to nominate, regardless of vacancies. For administrative convenience, nominations are to be received by close of business Monday 3 June 2019. Nomination and proxy forms are being added to this site and all committee members with email have them including secretary@sgdac.org

Dave Kistle, General Secretary, SGDAC

Volunteers for Sydney Half Marathon

The Sydney Morning Half Marathon is to be held on Sunday 19th May 2019. We are asking for volunteers to assist and in turn St George receives a welcome donation. The wheelchair race starts at 6.15 am and volunteers would be required to be in the city early. However, it is a good opportunity to view the race and also help St George earn some extra finances.

Our club uses the funds to enter teams in relay events (Distance and Track and Field) and also to help athletes compete in Australian and overseas events.

If you can offer your free time for a couple of hours please notify David Kistle by email on secretary@sgdac.org or phone 0438 246 363

5KM- U16 Male & Female, U18 Male & Female, U20 Female

We encourage as many people as possible to get involved, so we can fill teams.
