MORNINGTON CHASERS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING The club's Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 2 November at 7pm at The Grafton pub, just down the road from the Talacre.  The agenda is on the website at http://www.chaser.me.uk/news/agm.shtml, along with a proposed new Club Constituation for consideration at the AGM.  A new committee will also be voted in to take up their posts in 2016 - a list of the roles can be found on the page linked to above.  If you would like to stand for any of the roles, please send an email to the club secretary Rafaele at rafaelelamour@hotmail.co.uk before the AGM.  
This year our club championship race is being held on 1 November at the Mornington Chasers Regent’s Park 10K. When you register, please include that you are a member of Mornington Chasers so that you are included in the championships results. Details, as always available in the events section http://www.chaser.me.uk/calendar If you are injured or recovering from another race, please consider volunteering as a marshal so that you can still be part of the day.
CLUB WINTER SERIES 10K in The Regent’s Park Marshals are needed for the race on 1 November as well as the subsequent four races too. These races are essential to the health of our club funds. Marshalling is just one of the many ways you can be involved with the club. Please email Avril to volunteer at avril.riddell@gmail.com

More than 30 Chasers are on the start list for the sold-out St Neots Half Marathon on 15 November so we will be arranging a coach to take us from the Talacre and bring us back afterwards.  If you would like a place, please register your interest on the Events page of the website.  Bear in mind that the train won't get you there in time to register so the coach is your best bet!  
Tuesday with Avril at Primrose Hill (on the flat) suitable for all levels.
Thursday also with Avril at Primrose Hill, this time on the hill!  
The session details are usually posted on our Facebook page on the day.
For details about other runs on Tuesdays and across the week, cycle rides and reps plus our couch to 5K programme for non-members please see the club website or Facebook page.

To include your results in the newsletter please email newsletter@chaser.me.uk with the details. A brief description of what you thought of the race and if you would recommend it to others would be great too, but not essential. There is no need to send results from Club races such as Summer League, Southern Athletics League and Start Fitness Metropolitan Cross Country League as these are gathered by the team captains / event managers.
'Fairly flat course and a great day for it, sunny but cold. Lots of nice buildings and scenery to run round.'
