Volunteer Notice - Samsung Run, Sunday 26th April
Good news folks - we've reached our target for volunteers for stewards at the Samsung Run on Sunday night. We'll be in touch with each of you individually over the next couple of days with arrangements as not everyone is on Facebook however all we are asking those who have volunteered is to have yourselves at JURYS INN CUSTOMS HOUSE QUAY FOR 7:30PM ON SUNDAY. Please be there on time folks. Paul Gannon and Paul Gorey will be there to meet you, give you your high viz and brief you on what's involved, which is mainly pre-race set up from 7:30pm to 9pm, and stewarding mid race and post race at the finish line. The evening is to be quite cool so wrap up. Thanks again to everyone who has put their name forward for this, we really appreciate your help, this effort will raise almost €1,000 for the Club.
Attention all committee members
Our monthly meeting will be NEXT Thursday the 30th April. See you there!
The club were very sorry to hear about Seamus Dunne's mum Josie, who passed away yesterday evening (4th April). Funeral details are here. We would like to send our condolences to Seamus, Tony, Cormac, Marina, Carmel and Irene, and all the Dunne extended family. Josie and her family became involved in the club around 40 years ago. She was a trojan worker and served on the club committee for around 20 years, and was club treasurer for around 10 years. May she rest in peace.
Are you entitled to use the track?
If you have not paid your membership fee for yourself or your child (Jan-Dec 2015) then you are not entitled to use the club's facilities. To enforce this we will be holding random gate checks to make sure that anyone entering the club has paid their membership fee. We must enforce this because you/your child are not covered by our insurance policy in the event of an accident of some sort (and accidents can and do happen). If you have any difficulty in paying your fee, please don't hesitate to approach your coach or captain to discuss this. Register and pay by clicking on the link above.
Meath Co. Board Minutes

Attention Fit4Lifers: Fancy your hand at a bit of race report writing?
Now that more and more of us are racing regularly the task of writing up weekly reports has gotten a little time consuming for one person, so we're looking to build a small team to share these between us. If you haven't done anything like this before don't worry - we'll provide guidelines, help and advice to get you started, and then you'd be the contact person to write one or perhaps two each week. If you attend races regularly then this will probably be even more useful as you'll have experienced the event and can talk about it first hand. No big commitment required, just a few minutes each week. So if you're interested or want to find out more then please comment below or send us a private message. It's great fun and it's a great way to help out with the club, in your own time, from your own keyboard, so take the plunge, go for it!
Can't wait for the next Bulk Order? Order directly from O'Neill's here.
Members, don't leave any valuables in view in your car when you park up at training...
Following on from yesterday post on thefts from cars, this type of crime is a problem around the county. Since Christmas thieves have been busy targeting GAA club grounds, Shopping Car parks, Railway station car parks and Gym car parks to name a few. Phones, cash and tools have been easy pickings in many of them. Thieves will continue to carry out this type of crime once it is lucrative. To try and prevent the thefts from occurring avoid leaving valuables on display on or in the car. Lock and secure your car. It is worth remembering that thieves maybe watching you put valuables in the booth or under the seat when you arrive at your destination. If you leave any valuables on display in your car it is an invitation for thieves to break in so don't do it.
Club Leaderboard Challenge 2015
We had some fun before with the Leaderboard Challenge and we've decided to run it again in 2015. We'll be recording performances from the seniors at the distances below in 2015, updating the table every few weeks and posting here on the club website. If of course you're not running with our 7pm group and you'd like to have your times posted on the leaderboard (all about the bragging rights innit?) just drop us a message on Facebook or to the firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll include you on the table for 2015. Members only and it goes without saying that its for AAI Permit / officially measured races only. Good luck to all!!!
