Matt Smith - Our New Chairman
Patrick Martin - Secretary
Kevin Stroud - Club's Welfare Officer
Chairman's Blog - Number ONE!
It's been just over a week since you, as a club, voted me to become the next Chair of DMVAC. So thank you for putting your faith in me to play a more active role in the club. I'm just starting to learn more about the role and all of what it entails.
It does seem quite odd to be called 'Mr Chairman' all of a sudden and I'm not sure I will ever get used to it! Please don't call me that all the time!
Firstly, I'd like to formally record a big thank you to Lawrence from the club for his time as Chair. I will try to fill his somewhat speedy shoes with the same enthusiasm that he showed.
I've been a family member of the club along with Karen and our 2 children for several years, so already know many members of the club in both junior and adult sections. Similar to Lawrence, I have in the past managed the Boys Team in the Ebbisham track league and also the boys cross country team, which I did really enjoy.
To help me get up to speed on what I need to offer the club in this role, I plan to meet with all the coaches and run leaders in the next few weeks and months. I'm also keen to hear, from all club members, your thoughts on what the club does well and what could be done better. I may not know all your names but am familiar with many faces, so do introduce yourself at some point.
On a personal note I'm really looking forward to the Tuesday evening Ranmore runs which start on Tuesday 16th April, as there can't be many nicer locations to run in Surrey.
My aim is to get all club members running with a smile on their face, whether it be with pleasure on a gentle run or a grimace with 100% effort in a race as they cross the finish line.
Keep running / keep smiling!
