Knox LAC have posted the time table for the event on the Knox LAC website. The duty roster is still being worked on & will be emailed out to all families, posted on the Knox website & on Facebook when available. We will also make it available on the Wantirna Facebook page as well.

A reminder to Wantirna Families  – It is a requirement to do duty at these event. As there is an increase in the number of positions that Knox LAC needs to fill so there are no emergencies to fall back on if someone does not turn up for duty. Please familiarise yourself with the duty you have been allocated.

Duty is compulsory. If you cannot do it, you will have to organise someone to fill in for you and ensure that they report to the Knox LAC team manager at the required time.

Knox LAC will have tents set up on the hill near the 400m start line.

Some Key points;

  • Knox Competition tops must be worn (do not wear your Wantirna club top or 50th Anniversary top)
  • Coles patches needs to be sewn on (not pinned) & placed on the top right (athletes right). The call rooms will have assistants checking uniforms.
  • Black shorts with no pockets…..only approved LA Vic logos or small logos under 4x4cm are permitted.
  • Be at the Call Room 30mins before the Start time of your event, the Call Room closes 20mins prior to the event start time.
  • Before your duty you need to report into Janine Kearsley, the Knox LAC Team Manager 20mins beforehand.

Good luck to all our athletes for the weekend and hope you all do well.

Under 6 to Under 8 Competition Evening – 14th February 2020

DO YOU HAVE AN UNDER 6 to UNDER 8 ATHLETE?

Feedback from the parents of younger athletes at the end of last season suggested that, in the second half of the season, there were not enough competition days. This was due to scheduling of region and state events (combined events, region and state track and field) for under 9 to 16 athletes.

Similarly this season with the scheduling of Combined Event, EMR and State Track and Field for U9-U16 , Knox LAC will be trialing an under 6 to 8 competition night on the 14th February.

The competition will begin at 6pm and likely to be finished by 8 at the very latest. In order to make this night a success, we need your support to ensure our youngest athletes are told about this night and encouraged to attend.

Events for the evening will be as follows;

  • Under 6 boys – 100 m, 300 m, Long jump and shot put
  • Under 6 girls – 100 m, 300 m, Long jump and discus
  • Under 7 boys – 100 m, 300 m, Long jump and shot put
  • Under 7 girls – 100 m, 300 m, Long jump and discus
  • Under 8 boys – 100 m, 600 m, High jump and shot put
  • Under 8 girls – 100 m, 600 m, High jump and discus

That this is a competition night especially for our under 6,7 and 8 athletes and that they have the opportunity to gain PB’s, and that the success of the night (and scheduling of future under 6 to 8 competitions) will only be achieved if they can all attend.

Chief officiating duties for the night have been divided among  eight clubs with Wantirna LAC to Chief Discus. Parents will still need to help at events. It may also be a good opportunity for those parents that want to learn about becoming a chief to help in the future.

If you are proposing to attend on the 14th February could you advise Janine Kearsley, Wantirna Team Manager.

From the President – Knox LAC and Signing in for Duty

Today, Knox LAC has sent out a reminder to all clubs about signing in for duty and setup requirements for normal competitions days.

The following reminder message from Stephen Hough outlines Knox LAC’s expectations for duty for all clubs:

Please remind your chiefs to be there setup ready to go before 8:30. Also remind everyone that is trying to sign on for parent duty that they need to be there well before 8:30 so that they can help the chief setup and be ready to go when the events are called. We’ve had some turned away after 8:25 because everything is full, if they need to do duty to qualify their kids for PB medals they need to try signing in before then.

Could I ask that those families that are on duty this week please sign in early and if you are on parent duty please assist the chiefs for the event you are assigned to in setting up and packing up at the end of the day. This makes the day run more smoothly.

If you have any question please come and see me.

See you at the track

Regards

David Kearsley | President

Reminder – Cake Stall and Raffle This Saturday – 30 November 2019

Reminder to all families that this weekend, 30th of November is the Wantrina LAC cake stall and raffle. This is an important fundraising event for Wantirna LAC. This year we will not be running a Bunnings BBQ so this is our best opportunity to make enough money to cover our trophy costs for the year.

What we need from you:

  • If any one still has a  raffle prize to donate, you can contact Leanne. If you have donation to provide on the day we’d like to suggest gift vouchers (of any denomination and for any retailer you like) to attract people and optimise our ticket sales particularly in the lead up to Christmas.
  • Something edible for the cake stall. We will be selling snow cones from the stall, a novelty we hope will be a good seller (who doesn’t like shaved ice with cordial on top) as well as a selection of treats.
  • We want to make it as easy as possible so the suggestions are
    • Cookies and biscuits (such as the Woolies Choc chip $2 range)
    • Cupcakes – the more visually appealing the better
    • Jelly cups / frog in the pond (don’t buy spoons, we have heaps).
    • Chocolate crackles / honey joys.
  • An hour or two of your time: We can only do this if we have people to man the stall. We need ticket sellers (at the stall and roving), shaved ice co-ordinators and cake sellers.

We understand that with at least 10 families doing duty that day some will be unavailable (especially those with young children) but please let Leanne know if you can fit in a short stint on the stall.

Thank you for your assistance, without input from all families we cannot maximise this opportunity. Don’t hesitate to contact Leanne Hawke or any of the Committee members if you have any feedback, comments or questions.
