Letter from the President

Hi all,

Happy new year! I hope you have all been doing well and enjoyed your Christmas/New Year.

I’d like to firstly apologize for the absence of the weekly newsletter. I assure you from now on the committee, will be more on top of communication.

It’s been a rocky start to the year already with Omicron cases surging. As a committee, we very much understand if members are uncomfortable training during these times. For those still training with us, Thank-you for following the covid guidelines.

However, this is just the start and I hope to enjoy a good year with you all!

I hope to train with you soon,

Toney Evans
President
