Forthcoming Events

The races are coming thick and fast over the next few weeks.  This Sunday there is the Dewsbury 10k and the Vets cross-country championships and on Saturday there's the Rombalds stride which Greg Collet is running.  On Sunday evening there is the meal at the Aargrah at Shipley.  On Sunday 12th the 1st vets race of the 2006 series takes place at Esholt (organised by Horsforth Harriers) have you registered yet? http://members.lycos.co.uk/yvaa/6GP-Entry-Form.htm and the following Sunday (19th) there is the final race of the Winter league series on an interesting course at Stainland.

Club trip to Belgium

As you may have seen in your club membership booklet (that's if you've paid your 2006 subscriptions which are now due) the club is again organising a trip to Belgium in the summer.  The Itinerary will be

Friday 4th August meet Leeds/Bfd airport 17:00 for 18:00 flight to Amsterdam

Saturday 5th August 10mile or 7k trail race

Monday 7th August return flight to Leeds/Bfd 21:00

In 2004 the Sunday was spent riding tandems and visiting a water skiing display, in 2005 we went canoing and then had a barbeque.  On the Monday we had a trip round Antwerp.  Who knows what they've got lined up for us this year, but I'm sure it will again be a realy enjoyable weekend.

It might sound like a long way off but if we book the flights now we can get them for 48 return which is less than half what we finished up paying last year.  So if you definitely want to go let me know and I'll book the tickets.  You can still decide to go later on but the longer you leave it the more it's going to cost for the flights.
