On November 3rd, NRCLAC members raised $714.50 to donate to Ronald McDonald House Charities, Greater Western Sydney, NRCLAC's charity partner for season 2018/19.
Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) is an independent charity that helps families of seriously ill children. We help keep families together and close to the care their child needs.
The cornerstone program of RMHC, the Ronald McDonald House®, provides a ‘home away from home’ for families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals.
In 1981 the first Australian Ronald McDonald House opened in Sydney’s Camperdown. There are now 16 Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia and more than 360 houses worldwide.
If you missed out on making a contribution, you may like to make your own donation directly:
Zone Championships are at Barton Park on December 8th/9th for all our U7-17s.
All the info you need is HERE.
Entries forms are due Week 7, Saturday 3rd November. Please print and complete the form and put it in the in-tray in the office on either of the next couple of Saturdays.
The club pays an entry fee for everyone to attend, so, this year we'd really like everyone to attend.
The standard of competition is pretty similar to what we have week to week, so you don't need to be a superstar. Get in, have a go, and it's a great experience to be representing your club.
Any questions, please feel free to email email@example.com and I can pass them on to NRCLAC Team Managers, Annika and Carwyn.

implications for some of our athletes and parents.

The State Track & Field Championships have been run and won. NRCLAC was well represented by a strong team of 28 athletes in 50 events and a relay. It was great to see NRCLAC offering plenty of smiling faces, a good number of medals, and so many PBs. I feel like I spent the weekend, saying "you can't do any better than that!". Congratulations everyone!
Special mention to the Junior Boys' Relay team picking up bronze in the last event of the weekend. A fantastic achievement!
Fantastic to see a strong NRCLAC cheer squad of families staying and supporting team mates, after their own events were completed. It's this friendship and support that makes us a great club.
Thank you to NRCLAC's Official, Kieron, working as a starter. Legend!
Thank you to the parent helpers who stepped up to do our allocated duties: Cathy, Claire, Annika, Carwyn, Ben, David, Mat, Isaac, Ravi, and Fiona. You're the best!
Thank you to Team Managers, Annika and Carwyn. Another hot and sweaty weekend in the bag : )
Everyone have an enjoyable and safe Easter break, and look forward to seeing you at Presentation Day, Sunday April 8th.
Cheers - Ferg | NRCLAC President
Congratulations to NRCLAC's record breakers in Season 2017/18...
