Thanks to all who showed up and contributed to our AGM last Thursday 16th, a copy of the DFR accounts for 2013 are available on request from Treasurer Dave.

The main decisions taken were:

New Committee

Andy and Dave Shaw stepped down after sterling service to DFR, a big thanks to them.  We welcome Bairbre and David Lee and will have lots of work for all to do!

Pride Run

Fantastic news – the AGM unanimously approved the club to go ahead with the third annual 5k Pride Run 2014.  Andy Chambers will be Race Director and more information will follow.

Congrats to those who, in the opinion of their peers and the committee, contributed significantly to the club during 2013:

Men: Seamus

Membership 2014

Is now overdue.  Please pay the E30 as soon as possible.  We will be registering with AAI soon, and after 31 January all non-members will be removed from email and private Facebook page.

Winter track training/fartlek

Has recommenced in Donore Harriers, Chapelizod every Monday at 19.00.  For insurance reasons, this is open to paid-up club members only.  Thanks to Andy and Anne Marie for their continuing work with this.

Club running gear

Courtesy of Martha, we have great winter hoodies available, see my last email for full details.  Please order from Val no later than Saturday 25 January to avail of a group discount.

New members night out

To welcome our new and newish members (and just an excuse for a night out), we’ll meet in Pantibar on Saturday 1 February from 21.00.  No need to book, turn up whenever, pop in, pop out, and have a great night out!  We finished 2013 with 144 members, our highest yet, and look forward to building on that in 2014.

And in the meantime, our Wednesday and Saturday runs go on!
