Important Club Announcement - Re-scheduled date for Senior XC Championships

02 November 2016

The scheduled date of 18th February for these championships clashes with the Armagh International road races on Thursday 16th February. Following some feedback a number of clubs would like this date to be reconsidered. We would be keen to keep the championships in Lurgan Park as we believe it is a very suitable, centrally located course providing excellent  ancillary facilities. In addition the park authorities are extremely helpful and we would like to keep and encourage our relationship with them.

It has already been noted that the following week end (25/26th Feb) is not available at the park but Saturday 4th March is suitable.  This date would appear to be reasonably free of other  fixtures though given the fixture congestion it will inevitably clash with something.

Therefore  given that this date needs to be urgently clarified we would ask for clubs for feedback by Monday (7th) on whether this would be an acceptable date move and will assume that clubs which do not respond are happy with the proposed change.
