Legends Day 2017 - Update

Details of the Legend’s Day 2017 are beginning to come together. (Preliminary date August 27th).

Although 2016 saw us raise a fantastic total of £1585.63 for Rowcroft Hospice, I feel we can do even better next year. Come on, let’s do what Barton CC does best, come together, and make Legend’s Day 2017 an even greater success. And let’s see if we can beat this years total.

Initial plans are for a 9.5 mile run from Brixham CC to Barton via Queens Park and the Rec. Contact is in the process of being made with the three other clubs to see if we can give the event a boost at each ground as the runners & walkers pass through. Also, for the younger members and their friends, we hope to set out a short course on the Cricketfield Road ground, possibly including one or two ’obstacles’, so that everyone has a chance to be part of the day.

We have to date 5 people who have committed to the run and half a dozen to the walk, including a few ’Veterans’ that have asked to be part of the day. If any of you want to take part in either the run or the walk, then please message me for details. Any updates will be posted here as and when details are confirmed. Sponsor forms for the youngsters will be available nearer the time.

A Just Giving page has already been set up (see below), so if anyone wants to donate they can do so straight away. If any of you would like that one person’s name added to the Just Giving page, to the list of those who we are holding the day in memory of, then feel free to ask and I will endeavour to get it added.

Once again we will be on the look out for prizes for the Raffle and Auction. If any of you have any contacts, business, family or friends, that you feel could help by donating an item for either the Raffle or Auction, then please ASK them. You don’t get if you don’t ask. You may be surprised by people’s reaction if you just come straight out & ask them. We have one Extra Special auction lot in the pipeline so keep an eye out for updates that will be posted both here and on the Just Giving page.

Many thanks

Chris D.
