Rosenheim Results from BA Hosted event at Eton on 3rd July
A great evening at Windsor, with massive help from a keen squad of BAAC race starters, hammer collectors, timekeepers, judges, sand sweepers, results compilers, measurers plus the blokes (and girl!) who ran and threw. Windsor and Eton is normally regarded as a remote western outpost to most of the other Rosenheim League teams, but this year they came in their dozens to compete in scoring and non-scoring events.
The results mean that BA is now proudly on the board in the ladies event, with two huge wins on the night courtesy of Janet Smith.
Our men, each of whom also judged or helped when their weren't competing, did enough to keep us in contention for the Rosenheim grand final. We now need lots of athletes to turn up at Woking on July 17th, and we will take the qualifying place from Epsom.

4th Grand Prix Monday 8th July 2013
The 4th GP of the season was held at Uxbridge track Monday 8th July. On a very sunny evening 3 athletes from the club + 2 young lads, who turned up, thinking that their scouts athletic event was on that evening, found out that they were a week too early.
The next GP events are on:
9th September - 400m & Discus
23rd September- 100m & Long Jump
AGM and Parkway Mile and AGM Wednesday 10th July 18:00 / 20:00 Concorde Centre

BA Fun Run approaching fast - Thursday 25th July
So far I've recorded offers to help from Chris Kelly+Baljit Dhanda, Simon Turton, Bill Byrne (from 17:00), Clara Halket, Piers K (flight permitting) and Paul Brandon. I've had a couple of apologies from Eddie Giles and Brian Forrester.
We need many more helpers for this BA managed charity event - please let me know if you are available or, if you are a regular and want to save me the effort of chasing you, please send me your apologies.
Summary - I need some people on site at or before 16:00 and then most others by 17:00 since the main 5k fun run starts at 17:30. Non-Waterside residents need to tell me their car registration numbers and I am getting meal vouchers for all helpers (which will probably also includes an adult drink). The BA Fun Run has a theme this year of Carnival.
