Hi everyone, well it was a wet morning, but we proceeded with our wet weather program as much as possible. Thank you all for your patience and persistence through a pretty ordinary morning. Even in the wet, Arianna Di martino managed a Centre Record in the U13G 100m and Erica Peake in the U17G 100m. Well done athletes and I hope your athletes had some fun in the rain! For other events that were not completed, we will attempt to add these in to other programs where we can.
State Relays update
All families should have been communicated to regarding availability of their athlete to run at state. Apart from one athlete, all athletes are good to go. We will send out an email this weekend regarding final progressions and parent duties. I continue to encourage relay training.
This Sunday will be the last event training for this year. Our coaches will be off on a well deserved break and we thank them for all their hard work. Training will return on Tuesday January 16th. During January there will be no training on Sundays.
Christmas twilight – Wed 13th Dec from 5pm-8pm
Wednesday 13th Dec is our final competition day for the year and is also our Ringwood Gift. There will be lots of fun, raffle prizes and a visit from Santa so get excited. Dont forget to get some Christmas raffle tickets and support the Royal Childrens Hospital Good Friday Appeal.
Christmas closure December 13th – January 13th
The last event at the centre for 2023 will be our twilight next week. We will return on Saturday January 13th 2024 for the 4 pillars event. Have a great chrismas and wonderful new year. Thank you for volunteering your time this year and I hope your athletes have enjoyed their time at Ringwood this year. Looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
4 pillars – Saturday Jan 13th from 8am-2pm
4 pillars is an event hosted by Ringwood that simulates state combined event program and includes athletes from Doncaster, Nunawading and Box Hill. Its a bit of fun and creates interesting competition between athletes from different centres. I will be submitting an event entry form next week for athletes to express interest.
We will be keeping a close watch on the weather and if it is too wet Saturday we will advise cancellation via our socials. Look out for announcements.
Looking forward to a dry Saturday, see you at the track
