“I just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic competition yesterday. We have attended many competitions at OCAC and have always enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and great organisation. Yesterday I had 4 of my 5 children competing – 2 in the 10 step & 2 in the 5 star, so it took some effort on my part to get them to the right place at the right time! I thought the organisation and delivery of such a packed schedule was incredible – including having to deal with starting gun problems (she dealt with it all so calmly!) the event officials, volunteers at the ‘tuck shop’ and all involved, did an amazing job of representing your club in the best possible way.
My children love athletics and this is due to the great set up we have for youngsters at MMKAC but also very much due to the encouraging way you also as a club put on competitions for the younger athletes. These first experiences they have had competing at your Quad Kids events have been invaluable in developing their confidence in competition as they have got older.
Please pass on my thanks to all those involved – their efforts are much appreciated”.
Julie Freeland, MMKAC
