A great way to farewell winter - top efforts to welcome summer

A good attendance at the final winter track and field series last Sunday, has given the club a great hope for a very good summer.

A welcome lot of guests appeared at the meet with some outstanding results being recorded but it was the possibility of many joining the club for the summer track and field season, commencing Sunday 18 September, that has officials buzzing.  The Round saw some personal bests being recorded in near perfect weather.

A warm welcome was extended to members of Albion park little A’s, many indicating they will certainly consider IBS as their dual registration club.

Masters athletes used the meet in preparation for the world tiles in October with some travelling from the Blue Mountains and Sydney.

Blue Stars will conduct the final round of cross country on Sunday 11 September on the popular Bulli course commencing at 10.00 am, then away goes the winter gear and out comes the summer track gear, for the club to commence the summer season at 2.00 pm on Sunday 18 September.

Registrations and uniform orders will be taken on Sunday 18 September but members and potential members are advised that they can register at any time of the season.

A program of events will also be conducted on this day, for all ages from under 8 right through to masters’ men and women.

The club also welcomes a young Danish exchange student who will compete for the club this summer, in the middle distance events and athletes are keen to welcome her on board in her new overseas club.

A welcome addition to the club saw a young man from Bowral join up, a welcome addition to the club’s men’s high jump team.  He has the ability in both high and long jump and also sprints.  This will give the club an outstanding high jump team for state relays, an event the club has not contested in State relays for some time.

Bring on the summer track and field season, but don’t forget our last cross country meet is on Sunday 11 September at 10.00 am at Bulli Beach.
