The club committee are pleased to announce that during the awards night event on Friday, February 12th, a special draw will take place giving the lucky winner the opportunity to take part in a tandem skydive from the British Parachute Association base at Netheravon in Wiltshire.

Please note that you must be a current member of Weston Athletic Club in order to participate in the draw.
