Watch out Throwers about!

All coaches and athletes please note that as of tomorrow, Tuesday the 27th Bart Rogers will have the javelin throwers back training in the Morton Stadium.

All coaches need to remind the athletes in their groups that accordingly the crossing of the infield is now out of bounds and any crossing should be done either behind the javelin throwers or done at the far end of the stadium. Some of these throwers will be capable of throwing the javelin 60 metres plus and of course if it is a wet night the javelin will skid off the ground and go further.

It is vitally important, therefore, that all are vigilant and wary of their surroundings.
