Scottish Indoor League Finals and Relays – Kelvin Hall, 15 March 2009
It was a hectic day at the SAIL finals with 13 of our teams qualifying for the finals and the relays also taking place. Our athletes had a great day with 45 PBs or season’s best performances. In the relays our U20 men set a new Scottish U20 club record with a time of 1.31.11, just missing the U20 national record by 0.2sec.
In the team events our U13 girls did exceptionally well, taking both 1st and 2nd places as well as taking gold in the relay.
Many thanks also to all those who support the league from officials (experienced and new) and to parents/grandparents and friends.
As mentioned previously it cost £480 to enter teams plus 4 buses each time costing a total of £1,100. We managed to collect £900 which is a great help towards the overall costs. So a big thank you to the Bank of Mum and Dad!
Yvonne Jones and Keith Ridley
PS If anyone is willing to assist by way of sponsorship/monies to any league that the Club participate in this would be gratefully appreciated (even small donations help).
