UK CAU Inter-Counties Cross Country Champs at Cofton Park, Birmingham on Saturday 8th March
If anyone wants more information please contact Barry Parker (use the email form) as he is now the lead Team Manager
(Alan Domleo will not be there).
Look for the Derbyshire flag very close to the Park entrance in the Overflow Club Tented Area. Please allow plenty of time for parking,
finding us collection of vest and chip, warm up and getting to the Start.
I am desperately short of Team Managers and we need more help on the day. We have 2 male Team Managers and 1 female who is
looking after the U13 Girls. If I do not have any more volunteers I will be seriously thinking about withdrawing the U20, U17 and
U15 Girls teams on Thursday. Parents please help us to help your son/daughter. A similar fate may await the boys’ teams.

A CENTURY OF CLUB SERVICE.
Chesterfield & District AC stalwarts, President Brian Larder, Membership Secretary Irene Larder and Secretary Frank Gorman
have now clocked up over 100 years of service to the Club between them. They all came forward to volunteer soon after the
Club was formed in 1978 and Brian, the current Club President, has been a sprints coach, team manager and continues as a
timekeeper for all Club fixtures.
Irene has been involved with membership matters during most of the time, and still collects Tuesday's training fees. She is also
very active as a Timekeepers' Steward, and can usually be found in that role at the County Champs and supporting Brian when
he is the Chief Timekeeper at track meetings Frank was Chairman for 22 years until taking on the role of Secretary around ten
years ago. He is also active as a track and Sportshall meeting manager, team manager and field judge.
He is also a past chairman of the Northern Senior League and a past treasurer of the (then) National Junior Athletic League.
The three of them have provided a vital thread of continuity which has helped the Club prosper and grow from its very modest
beginnings back in 1978.
