Unfortunately the Eastern Suburbs family has suffered a number of sad losses over the last few weeks, with the loss of a number of past athletes and officials.Eric Cannell (pictured) was a member of one of our three generation families, with his father Tony competing for many years, and Eric competing along with brothers Owen and Mark, during the 1980s. The family name is now carried on at Eastern Suburbs with niece Arielle representing the Club. In the 1980s, as can be seen from the attached footage, Owen and Eric took turns winning the Eastern Suburbs Harrier Cup Club Consistency Award for 4 years.Craig Griggs came to the Club with his son Aaron, and was a very valued coach, official and committee member, being a recipient of both the ESAC Club Person of the Year Award and also the Athletics South Official of the Year Award.Peter Clarke was the patriarch of another 3 generation ESAC family, as a regular participant in cross country competition, along with his children Cindy, Wayne, Sharon and Kelvin, as well as more recently his grand-daughter Emma-Rose, as regularly volunteering as a family for cross country set up and pack up duties.Also, Philip Knott passed away recently. With his wife Nancy they supported the activities of their son Steven who was best known for his jumping events during the 1970 - 80s. Phil and Nancy's grandchildren were also members of Eastern Suburbs. Phil and Nancy would present at the track supporting the club and its athletes from time to time.On behalf of all present and past members of the Club, we pass on our condolences to the Cannell, Griggs, Clarke and Knott families. ...

For all those people who like to compete in multiple events, particularly multiple throws, please note the new entry restriction for program D, which is on this Saturday. If you don't understand, please ask.Also, as always, Hammer is our duty event this week, and we have a couple fo key regular officials away. Therefore we need some extra people to come and help out. Please note that this is not a "hammer" duty" or a "throwers" duty, it is an Eastern Suburbs duty. If you are a runner, you get to just turn up and run, because other officials do it, same with the jumps, relays and other throws. This is because other Clubs/officials are responsible for them. So please come and help out, no particular skills required, you can write numbers down, hold a tape, or call out names, just to make sure the events go ahead πŸ™‚As we prepare for Rd 4 of Athletics South Interclub, you will notice an extra box on the bottom of the entry sheet.As this is the program which features the 3 long throws, there will be a limit of three throws per person in each event.... except....Each athlete can pick one of the three throws to have their normal extra throws (subject to qualification) in that one event.So for example, if Daniel Smee picked Discus as his event, and he threw the Discus 35 metres, firstly, he would be drug tested, but secondly, he would be entitled to the extra 3 throws. If he threw the Javelin 45 metres, he would still only get 3 trials.Note that the event has to be clearly indicated when you submit the entry form, as once the sheets go the event, they will be final.Also, stand by next week for an announcement in relation to the return of the popular RSM Insurance Brokers feature events for the 2022-23 season. ...
