Important update about Presentation Day & AGM

Important update about Presentation Day & AGM

A special committee meeting was held yesterday evening to discuss the current COVID-19 situation and the effect on the remainder of the season.

Firstly, the current situation is unprecedented and evolving on a daily basis.

As a result, we will continue to monitor the situation and the proposed plans could potentially change.

The two remaining events are the AGM and Presentation Day both scheduled for Saturday 28 March.

The club has a legal requirement to conduct the AGM within certain timeframes and needs to go ahead on 28 March to meet those obligations.

The AGM will be conducted at 9am at Charnwood Oval. As part of the AGM we need to fill vacant committee member roles.

The available roles are;

  • President
  • Secretary and
  • General committee

Nominations for these roles can either be done in advance by emailing president@ginninderra.com or in person at the AGM.

If you would like further information about any of these roles, please email comms.team@ginninderra.onmicrosoft.com

In regard to the Presentation Day, in the interests of recent advice, it will not be conducted this year.

The announcement of major award winners including age group awards will be published on Thursday 26 March.

Collection of those awards will be done at the AGM on the 28th or by alternate arrangements.

Please note that participation medals won’t be available for collection on the 28th, please do not come to collect as they will not be there.

An alternative collection opportunity will be communicated once this situation passes.

If you have any questions, please contact comms.team@ginninderra.onmicrosoft.com

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult season, we look forward to seeing you all for the 20/21 season of athletics starting in October 2020.

Rego Day 2019-20

We are having our rego day on Saturday morning 28th September 9am-11am at the Charnwood oval athletics shed.

Through an awesome collaborative effort between LAACT and AACT this year will see a single registration bib sponsor and number, this will be an excellent change for our dual registered Little A’s and AACT members.

Unfortunately due to the additional negotiating effort this initiative took it has resulted in a delay in the printing and delivery of the number patches.

What does this mean for this weekend?

We will still be taking electronic registrations and the uniform shop will be open so please come along we just won’t be able to hand out rego packs this weekend.
