The 2017 AGM will be held on Thursday 7th December at Caroline Street Social Club. The club run for that night will be from Caroline Street rather than Nuffield - in past years, this has been a set time out-and-back on the road to Bingley. All Striders are encouraged to attend the AGM - a fantastic buffet will be provided and we have the largest room at the Social Club this year!
This year's Christmas meal will be in the private function suite at The Aagrah, Shipley. This will take place on the evening of Saturday 16th December.
As a running club, we are going for gold - the gold menu to be exact! Food will be served in a banqueting style so that we can all pick and choose as we see fit. For just £21.95, we will be served a selection of starters, main courses, sundries, a dessert, and coffee and mints. Additional vegetarian options can be provided on request and non-spicy food can also be catered for if required - please get in touch if you need more information.
For the first time, we will be taking payments via WebCollect - https://webcollect.org.uk/saltairestriders

Pie & Peas
The thoroughly ridiculous Strava-art, Christmas jumper and pie & peas night will take place on Thursday 21st December. Last year featured a wonky reindeer and an inappropriate snowman. A really fun night with pie & peas provided by the club and a chance to have a final run and drink together before Christmas. Again, more details will follow in due course.
Remember, every single one of you is a member of this running club. As such, you are all encouraged to attend any/all of the events! We hope to see lots of our newer runners joining the longer standing members to celebrate together during the festive period. We are all Saltaire Striders!
