This Saturday is the official re-opening of the upgraded Croydon track!
As well as the great looking track, our fantastic new discus cage is ready to use. We also have new shot put arenas which have been relocated to face each other. We are working with the Council to install scoria landing pits which will be ready for next season.
We also have new timing gates for the back straight which wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of Phoenix parent Aaron Struhs and Essential Safety Solutions. They have become a Platinum sponsor for the next few seasons, so big thanks to them! The new gates will mean more efficient recording and less parents required on duty.
We are working on having local media covering the re-opening and will also be running our delayed Relaython to raise money in support of the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. We aim to have the baton carried non-stop around the track for the entire competition and ask for gold coin donations from those taking part. Parents and friends are welcome to join in. Feel free to donate to this great cause even if you don’t take part!
Championship Day forms are due back this Saturday. Forms can be found on our Facebook page and website.
We would appreciate extra help setting up from 7.30am as we need to move the high jump box back in to place, among other things. Warm ups from 8.45am and competition starts at 9.00am.
The BBQ will be running, the canteen will be open and first aid will be in attendance.
