East Lothian X-C - Sunday 15th

From Henry Muchamore :
Hi All. With the snow lying nice and white outside, just thought I would make one more plea for HELP on Sunday next at Meadowmill for the East Lothian XCCC.
Julie has offered to do Registration from 11.30am and I have had offers to help set up the course from 9am. Lasswade's David Hands has offered to be Referee and Dave McConnell has agreed to be timekeeper, I do need OTHER OFFERS of HELP.
I know the date clashes with the Border's League final event and that is something we need to consider when looking at next year's callender of events.
I have invited ALL the Primary and Secondary Schools to enter teams but as this is the holiday week am not too hopeful of a good response.
I have inspected the course on Friday, but will need to make a final decision if the weather deteriorates as to whether we go ahead. It will be access issues rather than course issues.
Helen Bruce has arranged for a local Councillor to present awards and this will again be a good time to plug the Venue as a prospective Athletic Centre of Excellence for East Lothian. The ELC Budget debate is this week and I hope to hear good news.....
So if anyone is free to go to Meadowmill on Sunday, contact Henry at
