FUTURE RESTRICTIONS AT ALLIANZ PARK  Please be aware as of next week there will be no parking available on the west loop during the build of the west stand. Please see below information from the building company:
“As you know we are now getting ready to start the strip out and demolition of the West Stand and to do that we need to carry out some ground investigation works and surveying/tracing of the services all around the front lawn.
Could you please ensure that from Monday the 29th of July the loop out the front is fully barriered off, as it cannot be used whilst these works are ongoing. The footpath will still be open for access.
There will be times during this period that it’s not obvious that works are being carried out, but we have to have the work area free of public and there will be numerous holes and services exposed.”

Please direct ALL athletes, players, coaches and staff to park in P1/ P2. You will be able to access the front of west stand by walking along the footpath.
In an emergency access for medial vehicles will be via gate A.

EUROPEAN UNDER 20 CHAMPIONSHIPSTook place last week at Boras, Sweden. This is the 25th time the Championships have taken place, with the first one in 1970 in Paris, France.
Commiseration’s to KRISTIAN IMROTH who in the Final of the 3000m Steeplechase had a fall at the water jump. He was running perfectly as planned sitting out of trouble and made his move to the front with 1km to go, cruised past the field and went into the top 3 over the water jump, took a clip and went down and rolled. He was 25m back when he got up. He laboured on, and got to finish line. Currently on crutches just as a precaution.
Obviously absolutely gutted as genuinely feel he was prepped to maybe snatch a medal and given the pace – who knows.
He’s bitterly disappointed, but that’s part of athletics. But at 17 to be in the Euro final is a fantastic achievement, sadly it didn’t get the end result his hard work deserved

3000m Steeplechase – Heat 2 KRISTIAN IMROTH 5th (9:05.96) in the Final KRISTIAN finished 14th (9:25.19)

SBH SUPPORT IS EVERYWHERE – LIZZIE BIRD has told me at the race at Saint Maur Des-Fosses, France in which she lowered the clubs Senior Women’s 3000m Steeplechase record, that during the race she was very excited to hear someone shout “go Shaftesbury!” half way through. Whoever it was gave me a much-needed morale boost (and surprised me – since it was a small, mostly local, meet!) and made me feel a part of something bigger. Appreciate being part of the club even though I haven’t been in the UK much these past few years!

A WARNING REGARDING OPEN MEETINGS 2019 – I spoke to 2 of the organisers of open meetings, regarding whether there was a closing date for their meeting, especially as now entries are online only. Their response was when a meeting opens on the online system, there could be a 100m event that takes place between 19.00pm to 19.45pm, they would have ascertained that between these times there will be 8 races. Once the 64 entries for those 8 races have been filled, the event is therefore closed. Therefore, there could be a chance that an event could be closed 1 Week or 2 weeks before the meeting date. Therefore, please beware of this.

CURRENT DISTRIBUTION OF SHAFTESBURY INFORMATION Currently I notify members (by email) using “MailChimp”. The reason I changed, was in November 2017 “Gmail” put a limit of 100 addresses that users could send to in a 24-hour period, and currently I send to approximately 850 members each issue.

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward. There is one thing you should be aware off is that when you receive an email from me, the footer at the bottom has 4 options, of which one is “Unsubscribe Me From List”. Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
