As advertised on this page for many months now, Mike Scott is this year reducing his involvement with the SCAA photo-finish service. Unsurprisingly (given the huge amount of work that Mike has put into this activity each year) no one individual has come forward to take over the role. However, a team of SCAA officials, including several with extensive PF experience as Technical Officials, will be taking on the PF service for 2016. Mike will continue to play an important part, but as member of a wider team which will between them cover all aspects of the service.
The initial priority is to resource Surrey County AA events, but it is intended that, as the expertise of the team progresses, we will start to take on events promoted by Surrey affiliated clubs and other competition providers. A decision regarding the extent of this is expected to be taken in mid-April. Until that time, it will generally not be possible to take any bookings, but expressions of interest can be sent to SCAA via Margaret Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org). Margaret will save the dates concerned (if not already reserved) until such time as a decision is made on whether the event can be resourced.
CONGRATULATIONS TO BILL LUCAS DFC -
Former Surrey president and team manager Bill Lucas, DFC, was guest of honour at a celebration tea at Belgrave Hall on Sunday to mark 80 years' membership of Belgrave Harriers. Bill, who is in his 100th year, represented Britain in the 5000m at the Wembley Olympics in 1948 after just one year's training after serving in the RAF's Bomber Command for seven years and flying 81 missions, surviving unharmed. When he retired from active athletics, Bill was a valuable asset for the county as team manager during one of the most successful periods for Surrey in the UK Inter-Counties cross country championships.
Many older members of Belgrave Harriers and representatives of the South of England AA and Surrey County AA were at the celebration tea which was attended by about 50 people.
Bill thanked those present with an amazingly lucid and fascinating address which included explaining how he came to join Belgrave in 1936.
In one of the two pictures taken by Mike Fleet, Belgrave chairman John Powell is presenting Bill with a commemoration vase and, in the other, Bill is surrounded by many of the athletes he managed during his period as Belgrave's cross country team manager. In the centre is a painting of him running in June 1952 at a meeting to mark the opening of the Wimbledon Park track. Profile.

CARDIAC RISK IN THE YOUNG - England Athletics is publicising this charity.
CRY is a charity that was established to raise awareness of conditions that can lead to the sudden cardiac death of young people. They operate a screening programme at a number of clinics around the UK and support this with mobile units that travel to other locations.
Full information about CRY and their services can be found on their website at www.c-r-y.org.uk. Young people between the age of 14 and 35 who would like to have cardiac testing can go to www.testmyheart.org.
You can also see www.uka.org.uk/governance/health-safety/cardiac-screening-for-athletes/ for information on work being done by UKA in this area.
Following the death of a young member of Croydon Harriers, Mike Fleet has been promoting this charity for several years and anyone wishing to have copies of his photographs has been asked to make a donation to CRY. Further, he has been exchanging for donations bookmarks signed by famous athletes to raise funds for this charity. We thank those of you who have shown your support in the past.
