ESLAC Trophy Night Cancelled

ESLAC 2020 Trophy Night Cancelled. Please find below a letter from the ESLAC Committee cancelling the ESLAC Trophy Night scheduled to take place on March 29th, 2020.

Dear ESLAC Athletes Parents and Carers,

Unfortunately the ESLAC Trophy night that was scheduled for this Sunday the 29th of March has been postponed until further notice. The committee did try to change the venue to ES Marks where we thought we may be able to maintain the required social distancing but Little Athletics NSW advised that all Little Athletics events must be postponed/cancelled until further notice, leaving us no choice in the matter.

We are very sorry for our athletes missing out on their hard earned and well deserved trophies but we will try and make arrangements to make them available at a later time.

We will post details about our Age Championship winners and Club Champions for the 2019/20 season later in April.

We wish all our ESLAC families the very best as we all try and play our part in the thwarting the spread of the Carona Virus. Sometimes it is when we face situations such as this that we are thankful for the effort that we have put in over a long period to prepare for hard times. The whole reason Little Athletics exists is to help Australian kids grow up to be healthy and happy, so thankyou to all the families who have been participating at ESLAC for the sake of their children’s and family’s health and happiness.  We hope it helps you all stay healthy and safe into the future.

Regards,

Your ESLAC Committee

ESLAC Little A’s Cancelled Friday Feb 7th

              FRIDAY Feb 7, 2020
     CONSISTENT RAIN, SORRY!

Due to heavy consistent rain we have decided to CANCEL ESLAC Little A’s at ES Marks this Friday the 7th of February.

Regional Carnival Update. The ESLAC Committee could not have been prouder of how our ESLAC athletes performed at the Regional Carnival last weekend. The conditions were brutal with 42°C heat forcing suspension of the carnival at 11:30am on Saturday morning and a scheduled restart at 4:30pm on Saturday afternoon never eventuating because it was still over 40°C. A further postponement to 5:30pm was scheduled but the heat was unrelenting and everyone went home at 5:30pm with 6 hours of Saturday’s scheduled events yet to run. The Sunday program was rejigged with heats becoming timed finals and field events reduced to a single extra throw/jump for the top 8. The organisers, officials and volunteers pulled together and got the Sunday events finished early and then plowed straight into the unfinished Saturday events. Miraculously, with the brutal heat swapped out for driving rain and approaching lightning, the final event was completed at 7:45pm on Sunday night. What a weekend!

Through it all, in the words of our Club President Drew Richardson, “the parents/carers and athletes were awesome and just dealt with it.  Changing times, being called early, waiting for 30 minutes in the call room, missing their events, running in incredible heat, strong winds and then torrential rain were all massive challenges for the athletes and their carers.” ESLAC rose to the challenges and excelled over the whole weekend. Congratulations to the ESLAC Regional Team. There will be further updates on the team’s performance in the next few days.

We look forward to being back at ES Marks next Friday the 14th of February.
