The tail runners doddle poll is still in operation and can be found pinned to the facebook group page. http://doodle.com/poll/bd6iww28f9aycmq6
As a committee, we have discussed the relevance for a tail runner over a number of committee meetings that we hold each month and as a result felt that it isn't useful as they do not run the full route, therefore are not in a position to help out with any first aid equipment that they carry around with them and can not guarantee runners safe return from the route.
This was getting increasingly difficult to conjure up volunteers to help without the threat of over-nagging on a weekly basis.
We discussed that what we need is for the tail runner to run the full route to benefit the club and its members.
The committee will not actively pursue people to tail run anymore, the doodle poll will be in action until the end of October as a trail period and then we will review it at a later date.
If anyone is unhappy with this please approach a member of the committee and your views will be discussed at the next committee meeting in October, alternatively if you have any other suggestions then please speak to one of us.
We are here to help you run the club how you would like it, we are here to listen to you. If you would like to hold an ordinary meeting, please contact a member of the committe and we wil be happy to discuss your view and ideas.
