I would like to start by thanking all those members for attending the AGM at Thirsk, there were about 74 who signed in. Now thank you to our past Chairman Darrell Giles and last years committee for the work that was put in over the previous 12 months.There were some comments after the meeting to the effect that they wouldn’t be attending next years meeting if it were to go ahead at Drax. I am pleased to say that the venue has been changed back to Thirsk. You have spoken, the committee listened and have acted accordingly.I must say that use of the Athletics Club internal speaker system made it a lot better this year.There is a full programme of meets for you to enjoy during 2017 and hopefully something to please everyone. Please bear in mind that we still have some meets scheduled for which there is no steward, as I write this, if these places are not filled then unfortunately the meet(s) will be cancelled.For those of you who have not been on a weekend rally before then possibly our meet at Grinton, in the Yorkshire Dales, is one for you to ask all those questions. Remember no question is too silly and something what is thought to be the most silly question usually turnout to be the best.
Hope to see you in a field somewhere.
