KENT AC NEWS BULLETIN
29th November, 2020
Track is back! The track is re-opening this Thursday (December 3rd) as the national lockdown eases this week. Due to the new track arrangements (please see previous newsletters and the AGM minutes for more information), athletes will now need to register for their training sessions via their training group spreadsheet (see the links below). This is important both for Covid-19 track and trace and so the club can continue using the track for the foreseeable future as we move to a subscription model for receiving track fees.
Please contact your training group coach or leader for more information about training this Thursday and ensure you fill in the appropriate spreadsheet below prior to attending a session.
Club AGM The Kent AC AGM was held virtually via Zoom last Wednesday, with a record number of club members in attendence. A big thank you to all who wrote reports, contributed and attended. Minutes of the meeting were sent out to all members on Friday which we encourage you to read.
Thank you to all members of the committee for their work over the past 12 months, especially during this strange year, and all of the curveballs the pandemic has brought to the club. We are grateful to have such a dedicated group. A big shout-out to outgoing secretary John Barron, who has been an outstanding member of the committee over the last 12 months. From a communications perspective: in the inception of this newsletter and the member-help-member project, as well as giving a voice to many in the club. Thank you John.
Thank you also to Pete Lighting for his fantastic work as men's track captain for the last four years. Welcome to new committee members Dan Ansell (club secretary), Ian Elwood (men's track captain) and Ronnie Haydon (new addition to the communications team).
Fundraise for the club with your Christmas shopping The easyfundraising donations have been flooding in. Thank you to all those who signed up since the announcement at the AGM through the club's easyfundraising page. Top tip: you can install the easyfundraising browser extension to never miss a donation!
An update on online payments to Kent AC
As mentioned last week, payments to the club can now be made using Stripe. This takes a payment from your credit or debit card which is processed through Stripe. The main advantage to the club is that the processing fee charged is much lower. For example, on a payment of £50.00 (subs plus EA for most people) PayPal will take a fee of £1.75 whereas Stripe will only take £0.90.
This week's show is with Zuzana Nemeckova discussing nutrition. You can listen to the award-winning podcast on Spotify now.
S&C with Ellie! Please join Ellie for her last virtual strength & conditioning session before we return to the track next week. Tuesday at 18.45 - 19.30. No experience necessary, but a mat is required.
