JOHN CHIDLOW

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of John Chidlow on 31 March. John had been an official at the Gwent League for many years and was a great servant for both the League and Welsh Athletics in general where he was the endurance official's contact.

The details of John's funeral are as follows: John's funeral will be held on Wednesday 18th April at 12-15pm at St Mary’s Church , Caldicot , NP26 4HN , and Langstone Vale Crematorium, Langstone NP18 2BP.

AGM

The AGM of the League will take place on Friday 1st June. It will be held at the Bridgend A.C. clubhouse meeting at 7 for a 7:30 start. Light refreshments will be available. All items for the agenda need to be with the Secretary before 4th May.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------- Provisional results of the fourth fixture are available for all age groups - see the link on the left.

When submitting your queries please indicate your club or team.

Junior Age Group Scoring
There is a proposal from Westbury Harriers as follows:
The Proposal is that for Junior age groups (novices to Under 20) the best 4 out of 5 results count towards the overall totals.
1. Junior athletes who get selected to represent their schools at regional or national level often have a clash with the Gwent League as they both use the nominated league dates as prescribed by UK Athletics
2. As a result of the above, athletes who perform well in the Gwent League are selected to represent their schools and potentially miss out on Gwent League medals
3. This is proposed for individual and team scoring

If this proposal is adopted the method of scoring would almost certainly have to change as well. This would mean that the first runner scores 1 point, the second 2 points an so on.
It would also mean that presentations at the final fixture are unlikely to be possible - the amount of administration would be high.
PLEASE SEND YOUR COMMENTS

Chip Timing
It was suggested that we investigate the use of chip timing at our events
The use of such systems at other cross country leagues will also be investigated by the League.
PLEASE SEND YOUR COMMENTS

Gwent League Shirts It was proposed to reintroduce the Gwent League Shirt. Any athlete finishing in the top 10% of a race during the season would be entitled to (for a small fee) receive a commemorative t-shirt. Athletes will only be allowed to win one shirt per season.
