TRC Membership Renewal 2019/20

If you have yet to renew your Membership please read the notes below…

When renewing your membership please can you complete an application form (available on the website) and make a payment. We are getting quite a few payments without forms and some forms without payment, we need both.

If you are renewing filling in the form is very easy this year. If there are no changes to your details (1) Put a cross in the renewal box at the top (2) Write your name (3) Enter the amount you are going to pay (4) Sign it [or type your name if on the Word version]. Then save as your name and send to membership@thornburyrunningclub.co.uk and make the payment by standing order or a single on-line payment.

To make renewal easier please set up a standing order to A/c No. 01190517, Bank sort Code 30-12-04, Amount, Payment date 28th March each year, Reference: please include your full name as a reference. If, for some reason, you do not wish to set up a SO, please pay on-line to a/c No. 01190517, Bank sort Code 30-12-04, please include your full name as a reference.
If you cannot do either of the above we will accept cheques to ‘Thornbury Running Club’.

We are trying to avoid too many paper forms, as there is a cost to us printing them, and want to try and avoid handling cheques and cash. With the size of the club now these cause extra work.

Thank you.
Kevin Wood
Membership Administrator

Final Cross Country Race of the season – Sat 2nd March – Blaise Castle

Hi

This Saturday is a Gwent League Cross Country race at Blaise Castle. Although we don’t normally enter Gwent League races, this is very local and I felt a nice way to finish the season. As we have not entered any other Gwent League races we will be entering as guests but you will still get a time and it will count towards the TRC cross country competitions. 

Women and Men over 65 start at  1:20, men start at 3pm. You do need to come and find me at least 30 mins before your start, as I have to register all names – you do not register yourself. Just look for the TRC banner in the club area.

Details are here 

Hope to see you there – cake and enthusiastic support will be provided !

Jim
