Message for club members

04/04/2017 21:04:21

Dear club members


Many of you will be aware that we made announcements back in January about the need to wear club kit if you’re entering races as Weston Athletic Club. We also said that championship points would only be awarded where members wear club colours for races – with the exception of charity vests if they are running that race to raise money for that charity.


Since then we have had a few instances of people running in clothing other than club colours when they’ve entered races as WAC, and this has caused issues regarding the awarding of championship points and inclusion in the club results. This does make life very difficult for the club volunteers responsible for allocating championship points and making announcements about club member performances.


As some members have not been clear about the requirements the committee has decided to allow a further period of grace, and will retrospectively allow points to be awarded to club members who have not worn their club yellow t-shirt or vest up until this year’s AGM which will be taking place on Tuesday 18 April. After that date, points will not be awarded to club members running for the club at races unless they are wearing their club yellow vest or t-shirt (with the exception of the charity consideration mentioned above).


The rule that is already in place which states that members will not be acknowledged in the club results or championship if they run a race in someone else’s name remains and points will not be awarded retrospectively for races this year where club members’ performances have appeared in the results under another name.


If you have any comments or queries regarding these issues, please raise them with me, Ian or one of our other committee members, or at the AGM. You will receive an invitation to the AGM by email in the next few days.


Kind regards


Jim

Press Release - Weston AC at their best

Sunday saw the start of the spring marathon season and gave Weston Athletic Club’s members the chance to put into practice what they’d been working towards for the past four months. Some members headed north to Manchester in pursuit of a fast flat course, while others stayed closer to home and tried their hand at the Taunton version - an altogether different animal. Taunton also gave a half marathon option for those wanting a shorter route or saving their legs for a later spring marathon... read more
