The planned meet which will be Week 9 in our schedule is still ON at this stage pending a decision on air quality tomorrow morning. Given the recent variability in air quality from day to day the decision will be made prior to set-up (before 8am). We will refer to the Air Rater App on Air quality, as advised by ACT Health which will give hourly information. If it is marginal we may go ahead but not run longer races on the round track.
As we are still in school holidays we will have familiies away and appreciate the help of other parents to fill in where there are gaps -we will be in need of extra helpers on round track and hurdles. We would all appreciate lots of set up help are some regular helpers will be away.
Given the forecast for smoke haze to continue and perhaps worsen over the coming days the Committee has made the early decision to CANCEL the planned meet for this Saturday. We hope that all our families are keeping safe during this difficult time and we hope to be able to restart our season on January 18th.
Coach Rodney is away this week so there wont be any Thursday training this week - will recommence next week.
A Special General Meeting will be held prior to our meet on Saturday 7 December 2019, at 8am at Amaroo Ovals.
The purpose of this meeting is for our Treasurer to present GUNLAC’s audited financial reports from our last financial year, as is required under our Club Constitution. It is also a requirement that we advertise this meeting to all members so they may attend.
Any interested members are welcome to attend and may request a copy of the audited reports beforehand.
Thursday Training for November 21st has been cancelled due to the forecast temperature of 39 degrees. We do not conduct any training above forecast 35 degrees
Our program for this Saturday 23rd November is now available on the Club Documents. This week we have a few different things on offer - our Under 9s will be doing High Jump Scissor Skills activities on the scissor mats and Under 8s will be doing Turbo Javelin as a measured event for the first time. We will also have senior hurdles so fingers crossed for a nice calm morning, not too windy!

Training commences this Thursday at 5.15pm Amaroo Oval. Training is FREE and is available to all athletes Under 7 and older. The sessions are event focused - each week our coaches focus on technique of a different event. The training schedule for the first 3 weeks of the season is now available on our Training Page. This week younger athletes will do long jump with older athletes on Javelin. No need to pre-register for training.
Please note - parents MUST stay with their children at training. Children must be well behaved and respectful to coaches at all times. All our coaches are volunteers - we are very thankful for the time they dedicate to helping our athletes improve their skills.
