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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

Team manager and coach Linda Smith has sent out emails for both FVL and SWAL last week but having spoken to a few people yesterday she believes some may not have received them or they have gone into spam.
If you were expecting an email regarding either events could people please check and get back to Linda ASAP .
A really good turn out from our young athletes at yesterday’s Lothian trails held at Meadowbank
Please find the un-scrutinised results below.
Well done to all taking part and special thanks to the many officials from lasswade AC and elsewhere for officiating.
Please find the attached request for some additional support for the forthcoming east districts in May. Whilst they need officials there are a number of roles that do not require formal qualification to undertake. If you think you can assist please respond to the link below
With League competition fast approaching I have sent each member a form to complete. (as above link)
It requests availability to be considered for selection for events. Whilst there will no doubt be changes over the summer it gives team managers a good starting point for team selection.
Last year we frankly struggled in the opening matches , primarily due to holiday commitments and I am keen to ensure Managers have the largest pool of available athletes to choose from.
Returns as quickly as possible please. Those who do not yet have Scottish Athletic Membership are requested to arrange as soon as possible in order that they can be considered eligible to compete.
I addition to the Edinburgh and Lothian trials there is another open graded available on Wednesday 3 April 2016
