The Club is pleased to welcome three new members and one returning member. They are Marc Dellasega, Emily Louise Knight, Ian Crabtree and Mike Butcher.
This year’s MAC AGM will take place on Wednesday 21st June at 8:00 pm. Please put the date in your diaries and make every effort to attend. More information about the evening will follow soon.
Please could all parents/carers of junior members make payment for subs in the next week if you haven’t already done so. As this is a new system there may be hiccups which the membership secretary will handle as soon as possible. He can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When entering a race, please can you ensure you give the club’s name as Maidenhead AC, not Maidenhead Athletic Club or MAC. Maidenhead AC is our UKA, England Athletics club name. As well as making it harder to find club members’ results, more importantly, giving the wrong club name could prevent us from winning a team prize.
