Possible Newbie

Postby martyb49 » Thu Jun 16, 2011 11:43 am

Hi All,

I am a local resident(ish) in that i am from the area but am frequently away oversea and therefore would not be able to attend as much as i would like. Are you open/ happy for members turning up ad-hoc and when available, i presume one day i will be back for longer but in the mean time i'd at least like to get to know the club and participate in some of the events.

Hi Martin , of course you will be welcome to join us. Best idea is to come down to West Park Leisure Centre on either a Tuesday or Thursday (tonight even!) .Look for people hanging around the changing rooms and if they are wearing running kit make yourself known!

Hi Martin

I am the Club Membership Secretary and would recommend you try attending one of the club nights (Tuesday and Thursday at 19:00) and see how you like it. Our fees our quite modest currently £20 a year, which also includes free entry to several local races and a reduction on other race fees. As we are past the half way stage in our membership year this is reduced to £10. From your message I am not sure how often you would be able to attend, but you will be made welcome.

Do it Martin, I joined about 6 years ago with no intention of comeing down on Tuesday or Thursday due to shift work and kids, I am now nearly here all the time.

There is plenty of ad hoc weekend and weekly groups going out so plenty for you to join in and do. \:D/

We also have our own Jase who is away with the ROYAL ENGINEERS at the moment. :P
