John Penny and Bernie Plain 2014 21 November 2015

John Penny thanked at AGM

In opening the Annual General Meeting of the club, held last night in the club room, President Bernie Plain paid tribute to John Penny's long membership and service to the club in many roles. John (80) has decided to give up coaching and Bernie presented him with a memento of the club's appreciation.

Four distinguished members were elected as life members for their outstanding contributions: Alex Donald, Matt Elias, James Thie and James Williams. Each has made an important contribution as an athlete as well as in other ways to the successes of the club and their elections as life members were warmly received.

Being an official at an athletics meeting can be interesting and rewarding and it is not too difficult to become qualified.

Next week, Welsh Athletics is organising a course specially for Cardiff AAC members and friends who are interested to become officials. The course is over two evenings, next Monday 24th and Thursday 27th in the Cardiff International Sports Stadium, Leckwith and will be from 7pm until 9pm each evening. On Monday, general rules will be covered and Thursday will focus on field events.

The sport cannot operate without officials so we would encourage as many as possible to give it a try. Please contact Garry Jones (garryjones333@btinternet.com) as soon as possible.
