Dear Ovies, fellow runners and friends

BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST!

final-invite

Overkruin Atletiekklub is 20 years old this year and we are going to celebrate our anniversary and new club house with a big party!!!

Hopefully you have all received sms notifications by now.  Those whose email addresses we have will also receive an invite per email.  In the meantime you are welcome to spread the word.

Please RSVP to Overkruin.atletiekklub@gmail.com by 31 August 2018.

NEWSLETTER

The Management Committee decided that the Newsletter will from now on be published 4 times a year and will contain the up-to-date statistics for the club.  The Newsletter will not contain any standard information as this as well as the birthdays of club members will be available on the website.

We are in the process of updating the Birthdays page of the website.

REVISION OF THE CONSTITUTION

A decision was made at the Annual General Meeting at the end of 2017 that the Constitution will be revised and a final draft submitted to the AGM in 2018.  ALL members are therefore invited to submit inputs before 30 September to any of the Management Committee members.  No new inputs will be considered at the AGM as we will have to vote on the changes at the AGM.

CLUB HOUSE

I am sure many of you have followed the progress with the construction of the new club house with excitement.

Please keep 8 September open so that we can all celebrate our new club house and the 20th anniversary of our Club.

HOSTING OF RACE IN 2019

The provisional date allocated for our race is 30 March 2019.  The final date will be communicated in due course.

SPONSORS

Sponsors are needed to host our race next year.  Please let the Management Committee know if you can assist or know of someone who might be interested in sponsoring our event.  Big and small sponsors are welcome!

YEAR END FUNCTION

Date:  24 November

The function will take the form of a “skaapbraai”.

Please book the date.  More detail will be provided later.

FINANCES

The club finances are healthy and well managed by our Treasurer.  Thanks, Rocky!
