Celebrate Glenhuntly Club Legend Ron Clarke with 3km run or sprint races in pre-season open day

Hi Glenhuntly members

A club open day is planned for the afternoon of Sunday the 4th of October so please leave this afternoon free in your calendar. This event was formally run as the Ray White handicap day but an exciting new major sponsor will be unveiled shortly. The day will be open to all club members and non-members so encourage your friends to come along too. The events on the day will incorporate historic perpetual club awards for Glenhuntly members, some dating back over 80 years! The signature event will be the 3km Ron Clarke run in memory of this great Hunter.

We are currently sourcing sponsors to donate prizes for refreshments, events, raffles and random draws so if you know someone who might be interested in a small donation of goods (for example a friend who owns a shop or your employer) then please let Kurt Golonka know via email (kurtgolonka@gmail.com) or Facebook. Any sponsors will get good publicity on the club’s website and Facebook page and on a sponsors board and announcements on the day.

Importantly we will need a few volunteers. A specific volunteer required now is someone to co-ordinate the minor sponsors. This won’t be an overly time consuming task and you will be helping to raise money for the club so please let Kurt know if you are interested in this role. We will also need some volunteers on the day to help set up and clean up so also let Kurt know if you can spare a couple of hours on the day.
