DUTY CLUB: Hamilton City HAWKS Track and Field have undertaken to be Duty Club again this season. There is a payment for this from the Waikato-BOP Centre and contributes towards Club costs. It is important we share the workload when there are Centre events at Porritt. Pleas assist when you can.

Equipment: Assist with putting out/returning equipment and setting out hurdles, throwing sectors, raking jumping pits at all open meets and Championships.
Catering: Morning / afternoon tea for open meets – lunch if required -food costs are invoiced to Centre.
Entries for events: – recording entries and taking fees for Open events.
Cleaning up: Common room at end of season, packing all tables and chairs into shop space

OFFICIALS TRAINING:
HAWKS CLUB and the Wai-BOP Centre desperately need more officials. OUR CLUB is prepared to pay for YOU, your parents, family or supporters of the CLUB, to complete one or more of the training sessions. Oct 20th (track) , Nov 3rd (throws) @ Porritt , Nov 24th (Jumps) @ Tauranga. This is also a great way for ATHLETES to learn the rules and then be available to assist if injured or not competing at times. If you are keen to do any of these training please contact our Vice president, Ashlie Sando on 027 239 0137. Charles and Ashlie were both able to use this training last season and help the Centre run meetings.
