Henley Gift (SAAL) - Friday 11th November 2011

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


The SAAL returns to Henley for the first time in a decade when it conducts the Henley Gift on Sunday 13th November 2011.

Up until 1999/2000, the SAAL regularly ran a meet at Henley, quite often running two or three meets in the one season at the venue.

Entries for Henley close on 17th October 2011.

Slight hiccup with Henley about the date (13th Nov). The local city council may have a clash.....Hopefully it will go ahead on the designated date, but if not ProTrack will update you with any changes.


Henley will be confirmed on Friday (7th Oct) but it is looking less likely the meet will be on Sunday Nov 13.

If for some reason you could not compete on the Sunday (such as getting on the gas on the Saturday night... drunken ), then stay tuned.

On the same weekend ASA will have the first of its Saturday (12th Nov) interclub meets which includes the first 4 x 100m relay of the season.


The 2011 Henley Gift meeting has been re-scheduled for Friday 11th November. Starting time will be 6.30pm.

This allows the SAAL to utilise the main Henley oval rather than the Little A's oval and access the lights.

I believe the Henley Footy Club bar will be open.

As a side note I think all the sashes should be ordered with the date appearing as- 11/11/11, a unique set of numbers for someone who achieves a first (aka number 1) on the night.

Entries for this meet are now open and will close on 17th October.


Would be a nice touch also if every sash had a red poppy inscribed on them

What are peoples thought on start time being 6:30?
May be hard for people to get there on time and warm up if they are one of the first events. Henley isn't a short drive for a lot of people.
