TV's Update - Wednesday 5th December 2012

posted 5 Dec 2012, 20:00 by Monash Running

This week – Tuesday 4th December 2012


·        FINAL REMINDER - See Chris Allan next week to book / pay (just $5) for our great annual Christmas barbeque celebration to be held on Tuesday 18th December (details below). So far the response has been excellent – promises to be a fun event.


Typical Melbourne - almost back to Winter this week !.


No new faces this week – and sadly once again we said a final goodbye to another of our favorites – Nina Chevalier – who heads back home for good to Germany in the next few days. It was great to have you involved Nina – all the best from your running friends.


Attendance was pretty good -  – there were 39 of us. Lots of apologies in advance – which I do appreciate.


This week’s session was the popular 8 x 60sec efforts followed by 2 x 30sec– with Len at the whistle yet again.


MOVEMBER – Thanks heaps for your great support for  JUSTIN, MATTHEW, NENAD, & CHRIS – thankfully it’s over now & those moustaches are gone.





Some News


·        For your Diary - Our 2012 Christmas Party / BBQ – is scheduled for Tuesday 18th December – straight after our training session – so at 7pm. It’ll be held in the BBQ courtyard at the rear of the Sports Building, overlooking the ovals. This is always a great event so PLEASE do your best to attend.

Chris Allan is taking names, & payments to cover costs (just $5).

If any of you would like to offer to help with arrangements before & on the night – please let me or Chris know. Many hand make light work ! So far offers to help have not been numerous at all – how about it ?



As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next, 11th December


In 2012, as usual, we’re located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & parking is very handy - enter from Ring Road East & go around to the Baseball field along the road around the back (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1. You can park at the rear of the pavilion if space – or on the dirt road above if you like



Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park




Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (8th December) - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there. We’ll meet at the usual  spot, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP (please try to be on time) -  out the front of the cafe – ‘Madeline’s’. Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.


Running Group Waiver Form – A message from Monash Sport.

All participants of the Running Group are required by the University to complete a waiver form. This form has a number of purposes. It firstly acts as a waiver to advise participants of the potential risks involved in the activity. It will also provide Monash Sport with valuable statistics in regards to who (student/staff/alumni/community) is participating in this activity. The University is requesting information on who is participating in all of Monash Sport's programs so this will assist Monash Sport in their reporting back to the University about student, staff and alumni usage. The form also provides an emergency contact point should anything happen. Hopefully we never need to use this information though!

If you haven't completed a form already, please click on the link below to download a form, complete it and bring it to the next session and give it to me /TV.

I will have spare blank forms with me of a Tuesday evening. Thanks to the great many of you who have completed & returned forms to me already.
