Alumni News – September 2017

Welcome to our first Alumni News RoundUp, we are hoping to keep these going on a monthly basis, with our first covering September (and a bit of October). Firstly, a bit about how the club is getting on, we had a fantastic Freshers Week this year, once again increasing our numbers which are to-date 97 members! We also have some great new sponsors and partners this year so we are super excited for the season to start!

If you haven’t already signed up to the Alumni membership, would really encourage you to do so. It’s not a lot of money and it’s a fantastic way to continue to support the club while keeping in touch and taking advantage of our offers like training camps and discounts!

Our alumni have also had a busy month with some fantastic results below are a few of our highlights. If you have any content you would like to share for next month (news, race results etc.) give us a shout, we would love to hear from you.
