Volunteer required. CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP
In preparation for the club championships in September we are looking for a volunteer to take on the administration of athletes, event allocation and collection of race fees. This role has been carried out by Dave McConnell who wishes to step back but has offered to support the person prepared to take it on. He has the necessary spreadsheets / documents from last year so should not take long to get up to speed
Any person interested please contact Brian Hood CDO via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me via the club facebook page.
To pinch a J.F Kennedy quote.
“Ask not what Lasswade AC can do for you but what you can do for Lasswade!! ”
Please, If we don’t get your support we cant push ahead.
Thanks in anticipation
Club development officer
Please find last weekend’s results from Kilmarnock. Well done again to all those that participated.
And so concludes this weekend’s double header for some with the Central and Southern Scotland Athletics League meeting at Grangemouth.
A tremendous effort from U11s right through to some ageing masters (myself included).
Particular thanks this week must go to Linda Smith and Margaret Benham who have picked up and run with the team in the absence of David Hand, due to his ill health. All at Lasswade AC wish David a speedy recovery.
Thanks again to all the club officials helping out today and to athletes and parents for once again giving of their effort, time and fuel.
If I can source pics from today I will get them up on Facebook.
No more team races for a few weeks but training continues and look out for open graded meetings at Grangemouth, and LIvingston as well as a throws and Jumps event at Meadowmill.
POSITION VACANT – Membership Secretary

Sunny but windy conditions met our athletes as they participated in Match 2 of the Youth Development League. After struggling to field enough numbers for a team in Match 1, team manager was able to field a significantly stronger pool of athletes.
There are still gaps particularly in the hurdle events so anyone who fancies having a go please LET A COACH KNOW !!
That said a huge improvement from our first YDL. 3 rd place this time and only 4 points of a second place
