Title: Londonderry Jamboree
Hello Cross Country Parents,

Welcome to a new season of Cross Country! This Thursday (Sept 29th) LHS will hold it's annual Jamboree. This meet is a "scrimmage". There are about 125 runners who compete at this meet. It is a tradition that the LHS XC and Track Club provide each runner with an apple, a baked good, and some water. Sunnycrest Farms and Mack's Apples donate the apples. We need you to help us out and provide the baked goods. We are looking for individually wrapped baked goods - whoopie pies, brownies, cookies, trail mix, or anything your runner loves. This is the one time during the season they get to eat something yummy after a race! Please bring your baked goods to the track on Thursday between 3:30 ad 3:45. We will be under the blue tent. If anyone wants to stay and help out that would be great too. Thanks so much for your help. Looking forward to another great season!

Title: Lundgren Road Race 2013
Dear Track Club Parents,

I hope you all are enjoying your summer! It is hard to believe but the Lundgren 5K Road Race is fast approaching. The date for the race is August 17th. We are looking for a few volunteers to collect raffle prizes that the club gives out after the race. The prizes are from local businesses and there will only be a few to collect. Please consider helping us out. Just email me at thetroisis@comcast.net and I will get you the small list of places.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Title: Track Club Meeting

Dear Parents,

Another active year of the LHS Cross Country and Track Club is drawing to a close and we are already looking forward to next year. On Monday, June 10th we will have our final General Meeting of the LHS Cross Country and Track Club for this school year and hold elections for Board Members at that time. The meeting will be at Michele McAuliffe's house (11 Haywood Rd.) at 7:00 pm.

The Track Club Board is comprised of the positions of: President, Vice President, Secretary,Treasurer and 1-2 Members at large. We also have many non-board volunteers who assist in the Club in many ways; Scholarship Committee, Lundgren Road Race, Middle School State Meet, Fall Bake Sale, Apparel Orders, Home Track Meets, Londonderry Invitational, and Meet of Champions, just to name a few.

We have three open Board Positions for the upcoming 2013-2014 year and a huge need for Event Coordinators. The open Board positions are for President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Currently Michele McAuliffe will be running for President, Kelly Russell for Secretary, and Liz Court for Treasurer. Terri Troisi will be finishing her term as Vice President.

At the moment, most of the events listed above are coordinated by Nancy Peabody and Terri Troisi. The Club will be losing both of them after next year. Both women have been involved with the Track Club for many years and have a vast amount of knowledge between them. We would really like people to step forward for 2013-2014 and work with the current coordinators to learn what needs to be done and take over an event for the following year. These are the events that keep the Track Club funded!

It is not too late to express interest in any of the open Board positions or to become an Event Coordinator for one of the events mentioned. Please feel free to get in touch with any current Board Member if you would like more information about the open positions or training as an Event Coordinator:

Sandy Lagueux- rs2lagueux@comcast.net
Terri Trosis- thetroisis@comcast.net
Michele McAuliffe- mcmpkm1@aol.com
Ellen Szymanski- elliero@comcast.net

The Track Club provides a tremendous amount of support to all six of the LHS running and field teams (Boys and Girls XC, Indoor T&F, and Outdoor T&F). It is possible thanks to the time and effort put in by our Board Members and the wonderful parent volunteers. Please consider an open Board Position or becoming an Event Coordinator to help continue the success of the LHS Cross Country and Track Club. We really do have a lot of fun and honestly no one person does all the work!

And last but not least, a very big thank you to everyone who has helped make this past year so successful!

Sincerely,

Michele McAuliffe
Secretary, Londonderry Track Club

Title: Londonderry Invitational
Hi All!

I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful spring weather - we deserve it! As you know Londonderry is hosting an invitational meet again this year and it is fast approaching! The date for the meet is Saturday May 18th. We will need volunteers for spandex sales, the concession stand and for the meet itself. For the meet, we will need 2 people to stand at the gate that leads onto the track so people will not wander onto the track. There will be 2 shifts 11:30am - 2pm and 2pm until the meet ends. We will also need 5 people to help mark the field events. If you help marking the
field events, please arrive at the track at 11:45am. For the concession stand we will need 2 shifts of 8. The first shift is 11am - 2 pm, the second from 2pm until the meet ends. For the spandex sale we will need 2 shifts with 1 person each. You will not work alone, there will be others there! The shift times are the same as the concession stand. Please sign up on the Google spreadsheet, the link is below. I want to thank you all in advance for your help, the proceeds from the concession stand help all the track athletes. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at thetroisis@comcast.net. Come help us out - meet new people and have fun!

Title: Division 1 State Meet

The Girls came in second overall with state championships in the 4x200M relay and the 4x800M relay. The Boys came in fourth overall with state championships in the 4x800M relay and the High Jump. A job well done by all athletes who participated!

The Meet was video taped by Play On Sports and they have a DVD for sale. The DVD is $24.95 and can be purchased at their website: www.playonsports.com

I found it by going to their website, clicking on DVD in the top banner, and then sorting by sport and site on the left hand side.

Congratulations again!
