Club Nights

Posts relating to club nights (Tuesday/Thursdays)

Lots happening this week!

Quick reminder for you of this week’s events. Usual Club Training session on Tuesday, meeting at the Dome for either Nick’s session or Amanda’s social (don’t forget The Killers are playing at the Eco Power Stadium, so it’s likely to be very busy on the roads).

On Wednesday it’s the last in this year’s Road League series at Penistone.

Thursday sees Anthony Kerrigan’s away run taking place, starting at Hayfield Lakes.

Finally, on Saturday there is the meeting for prospective Chairpersons at the Icebreaker in the Dome at 3pm. If you want to find out more about the role feel free to pop along and speak with the Committee. There’s no obligation to attend, or apply, but if you are thinking about it and you have the time spare then you can get answers to any questions you might have.

The details for all these events can be found on the Calendar page.

Membership Fees Due

The 2022 Danum Harriers membership fee is due on the 1st April 2022 and is £14, plus the EA membership fee, which is £16. Therefore all members are required to pay £30 as soon as possible please.

Membership is payable by bank transfer directly into the clubs bank account. You put your name in the ‘Reference’ field so we can relate each payment received to the person transferring the money. If you don’t know the club’s bank details speak to a committee member who will be able to help you.

If any of your contact details have changed, for example your address, telephone numbers, emergency contact details or e-mail address please let us know by e-mailing dhrcclubsecretary@aol.co.uk

To those new members who joined from January 2022 you do not need to pay again.

Finally, for anyone who is a second claim member you only need to pay £14 as the EA membership fee will be collected by your first claim club.

Any questions please do not hesitate to Caroline directly.

If any of your details have changed can you please let her know asap and also update your details on your individual runners portal.

2022 Road League announced!

We have had confirmation that the South Yorkshire Road League is making a return for 2022. You can always find up to date information on this page here.

These are great Club only races for all abilities and it would be great to flood them with blue and yellow!

There are 4 x 5 mile races and they are all held on Wednesday evenings from 6 and 7 pm on the following dates:-

March 30th – 3 Merry Lads, Lodge Moor, Sheffield

6th April – tbc

20th April – tbc

25th May – tbc

The best part is the price – £10 for all 4 races so even if you can only make a couple, still cheap as chips!

We have been given a limited number but can get more if we respond quickly. It is a quick turnaround for entries so please let Mick know ASAP if you would like to take part. Hope to see lots of you there!

N.B – You need to be a 1st claim Harrier and must wear clubs colours (no training tops or cotton Harriers shirts!)

This years AGM is NOT virtual! No logging on or raising a glass to the PC or TV to celebrate your fellow Harriers!

Free to attend:
Award ceremony & Club updates to kick the evening off – All members are invited to attend/participate. (Winners of awards do not know who they are btw…could be YOU, get your nominations over to Adi ASAP!)

This part of the evening will include the annual club committee elections which will consist of all committee members resigning their seats and either re-standing or stepping down completely and giving somebody else a chance whatever is their wish.
This means that ALL positions are open for anybody to put themselves forward for election if they so wish. And if this happens it will go to a members vote and/or a show of hands on the night.

Caroline Greening – Club Secretary and welfare officer (vacating position)
Lynn Hutchinson – Ladies captain (re-standing)
James Holloway – Mens Captain (re-standing)
Adi Tuplin – Chairman (re-standing)

This obviously means we will have a vacant position for DH Club Secretary to fill for 2022.

Any candidates for any of the above positions must let Adi or any of the committee members know and please write a brief resume of why they would wish to be considered.

Optional £20 per person:
If you wish to stay on after the Awards and Club updates are done there is a 2 Course sit down meal followed by a quiz, raffle and general all round good fun.
Bar open until midnight and for those of you who want to carry it over into town (Someone else can look after your trophy) its only a short ride away!
