Alteration to AGM agenda

The KLAC executive had planned to move the motions necessary to commence the incorporation process for our Centre at the AGM on 28 April.

However LA Vic has issued new guidance on the process and there is insufficient time to be ready to deal with these issues before the AGM.

The incorporation issue will therefore be a matter for the incoming executive to consider.

In review: Cross Country Sat 5April

KLAC_CC_140405_Koomba
Finally!! With the sun streaming down, we kicked off our 2014 Cross Country season on Saturday at Koomba Park and, from the number of spectators and the smiles on the kids’ faces, we are in for a great season.

Just a reminder to all the athletes, if you manage to catch one of the hares they must buy you a Mars bar from the canteen. I could see a few of the hares struggling on Saturday … keen to see what happens this week!

You can check out all the photos from Koomba and the results. Also see our first newsletter.

A big thank you to Knox Council for mowing a path through the long grass.

This week we are at Jells Park South (Ferntree Gully Road entrance) – see you there!

State Champs 2014 – The final wrap

20140330-193443.jpg
We’ve just completed an action packed weekend at Lakeside Stadium in the State Championships.

Congratulations to the 90 athletes from Knox who participated. There were some fantastic results including plenty of PBs. For the athletes who didn’t medal, we are very proud of their achievements competing at such a high level of competition. Well done kids!

The final medal count was:

Gold: 7
Silver: 9
Bronze: 7
Total: 23

We also have two unofficial Knox records which should be confirmed shortly.

Thank-you to our coaches, most do not have their own children competing but they come and dedicate their valuable time.

Thank-you to all the parents who came to support the kids and participate in duty.

Thank-you to our Knox Team Managers Steve, Brett, Mirella and Nancy who managed event clashes with event organisers, managed the duty roster and reserved a spot in the shade at the end of front straight.
