Congratulations to all athletes who made the long journey to Grangemouth for the first league meet of the season. A big thank you also to the parents who helped out with the officiating at the venue, without you these events would not take place.

Well done all.
A reminder to all Athletes who have indicated that they would like to compete in the CSSAL in Grangemouth this Sunday that they have to at the Stadium by 10.45am. As the track is a Mondoe type they should also ensure that they are not using needle spikes, and the length of the spikes used do not exceed 7mm.
Athletes should also make sure their Scottish Athletics Membership is up-to-date and they bring their SAL number with them.
Please report to Raymond, in the main stand, immediately on arrival.

We are holding our AGM this Thursday, 21st April, at the Laurie Arms Hotel, Haugh of Urr, 6.30 start.
We need a committee for the club to run, please come and help.
Our fixture list for the 2016 season has been updated on the competitions section of our website, this is not exhaustive and athletes are encouraged to enter other events. Where events are classed as ‘Individual Entry’ it is up to the athlete and his/her parents to enter the events and look after the athlete at the venue.
Please note the Scottish School’s Champs do have an entry standard, however it is up to individual schools to enter their athletes, this is not a club event.
More will be added when we are made aware of them.
