As well as the very successful 25th Anniversary Celebration and Awards night at the Carmichael Hall, the club also organised an excellent Xmas Disco for the Under 11/13 athletes at the clubhouse on the 4th December .

We had the privilege of welcoming our very own celebrity athlete  , Rachel Alexander ,resplendent in her Scottish Commonwealth Youth Games kit and with her prized Bronze medal to present the Star Track Certificates .

u11 Awards 9 u11 Awards 1

These were awarded to all the athletes who participated in an event at the Emirates  , had logged training times or had also represented  Giffnock North at recent Cross Country events .

Dudley Walker our ever excellent master of ceremonies conducted an interview with Rachel about her athletics career thus far . Rachel ably explained her eventual choice of event  in Long Jump , her commitment to training and the need for young athletes to stick in to gain the rewards in athletics.

The young athletes listened in  rapt silence .

As well as that the DJ provided a good disco   , the  pizza was devoured and an excellent time was had by all.
