Sunday saw the opening match of this season’s YDL at Kilmarnock . Hoping to build on the previous week’s Forth Valley League win the u13s and 15s team struggled a bit due to so many absences.
Nevertheless some fantastic performances, PBs in challenging windy conditions and an opportunity for our athletes to try events that they would not normally specialise in .
Thanks to to all this those athletes who did take part, to our full team of officials and to Team Manager Linda Smith for organising us so well.

East District T&F Championships – Grangemouth Stadium 13th & 14th May 2016.
The above event takes place on the same weekend as the two other District Champs, this means the hard working Officials are severely stretched. As such we need volunteers from all clubs to help us deliver a successful event for the athletes. So far we have identified the need for an another 33 volunteers each day to help support the officials. Some of these areas only need to be filled for a few hours and hopefully if we get enough help for the other duties we can put them on a rota basis.
Additional help required as follows:
Officials:- Ideally we need another 15 volunteers to help the officials in either the Track or Field events – this would be an ideal chance for any newer official to learn from our more experienced ones and put their recent training into practice.
Declarations – Call Room – Seeding – Presentations: 12 required.
Distribute paperwork – Help move Hurdles -Take spectator entry money: 5 required.
We also require a Track Steward who should be competent in using a tablet device – which will be supplied
If you can help in any way please contact email@example.com by April 21st with the following info.
For individual replies
Day/Time you are available
For clubs replying with a block reply
As above plus email contact for each volunteer.
