Halloween week is here! Orange you excited?
We have a great fun session planned for this Friday night at the Club – hope to see many of you there. If you are planning to head away for the weekend – consider heading after the peak traffic and come to Little Athletics first! (Better still, help us out on Sunday at Mentone Bunnings too).
This week’s email covers the following topics:
1. This Sunday (30th October) Bunnings BBQ – Can you give some time to the community?
2. This Friday Night – 28th October
3. Prizes at Halloween Little Aths
4. Relays! It’s where we finally race against other clubs. Go Sandy!
5. Shot put tips
This Friday night (28th October)
Below are some general details and info for this Friday:
One start time: 5:15PM warm-up (5:30pm start) for ALL !
Set-up help: the committee will help set up the event and track. But it would be great if we could have some help packing up at the end of the night around 7pm. More info is below in this email…
BBQ: YES to sausages! Who has a Friday event without a snag? (we’ll also be selling some chocolate balls).
What to bring: water bottle and your costume! Halloween Twilight Night is a dress up affair. Here are some suggestions (but feel free to dust off what you like!)
u6 Disney characters
u7 – u8 Wizards or Witches
u9 – u10 Ghosts, Zombies or Skeletons
u11 – u12 Monster or Vampires
u12+ Devils or Angels
Parent duties: have you signed up for 4 duties during the season? Please do so as we are all volunteers working with our kids to improve their athletic skill development. SIGN UP HERE
Wet weather: we have a wet weather button on our website (in the top left hand corner), which we will update at 4:30pm on Friday if the weather is concerning. We know a lot of you were disappointed about Little Aths not going ahead last weekend. We tried very hard to make it work – but the track was soaking with rain at 8:30am, and then even at 10am it wouldn’t have been a great experience. We’ll stay on this for next time!
Program: here is the program for this week – Twilight Halloween Program
This Sunday (30th Oct) Bunnings BBQ – can you give some time to the community?
As we mentioned last week, the club is holding a fundraiser BBQ at Mentone Bunnings this Sunday 30th October. At this stage the volunteers are almost exclusively committee members – some for more than a 5 hour slot.
We are all volunteers at the club – so please help us out. We know it’s the long weekend and a bit of an ask, but if you are around – can you spare an hour or two? It’s as simple as cooking and serving and/or selling snags. Please give Nick a call or a text if you can help 0414 815 170
Prizes at Halloween Little Aths (this Friday)!!
We’ll have a number of prizes for the night including:
- Best dressed for each gender
- Most enthusiastic (or scariest) relay run
- The President’s Pick
Relays! It’s where we finally race against other clubs. Go Sandy!
LAVIC Relays have been launched this week – it is something you don’t want to miss out on! Check out the attached flyer for all the information – Relay Information Flyer
In summary, it’s Little Ath’s major TEAM event and all are welcome to join in (including parents for the Mentone Relays – we’re in for sure!). We often have teams A, B and sometimes even Team C for particular age groups. It really allows the kids to join forces and come together as a team representing Sandy.
There are two main relay events this year: Mentone Relay Day (20th Nov at Mentone Little Aths) and Regional Relays at (Duncan McKinnon on 3rd December). Teams can proceed through to States if they qualify at the Regionals.
