PRESIDENT’S REPORT Over the past 3 or 4 years SSH has come from a club that was struggling to field a team in cross country events to now being embarrassed with riches! While all would agree this is an exaggeration, the current standard of athlete now running in the red, white and blue far surpasses those of a few years ago. And what is a great achievement for all involved is that we are now getting some consistency in the teams entered. Consequently, as I write this article, the men’s open team heads the table in Div 2. And this is despite the fact that we have a few top athletes who are injured! While this success is rewarding for coaches and athletes, and satisfying for those you can only look on in expectation that one day they may be able to emulate these outstanding performances, there remains a hidden challenge that the club must face if it is to survive and prosper. That is the task of all the work that must be done off the track. This column has spoken of this challenge before, but unfortunately your committee is still struggling to enlist the additional support required to ensure the club performs as well off the track as on. I believe we are approaching a critical point at which, if we cannot enlist support, we are at risk of losing our position as one of the oldest and most respected clubs with AV. In the January 2013 edition of The Journal the lead article asked the question "Why join an Athletic Club?" The answer is not a simple one, but multifaceted. Two reasons offered were to be part of a club and its achievements, and a desire to contribute to a common cause. Both honourable and totally recognizable. But what do they really mean? I guess they mean different things to different people, but to truly "buy in" to the club spirit, the individual must contribute to each and every aspect of the club. It is easy to be a highwayman (or woman) and go where the first call comes from. But at some time each individual has to make a choice. Am I there for the club, or is the club there for me. History is littered with individuals who believe the latter, and they always fail to be remembered over the long term. It is the truly dedicated club man (or woman) who understands that it is physically impossible for a few to carry the load of many for an indefinite period. Remember Winston Churchill who said of the famed Fighter Command of World War II! "never has so much been done for so many by so few". They could do it for a short time – they did and they were successful. But only over a short time. Eventually numbers and time would have got the better of those courageous young men had they not been successful in the short term. And so we come to our club, that’s right, our club, your club, my club. We are in the same position this year as last, and the year before....and the year before that, and the year before that!! We have too few doing too much for too many! The club needs your help! I urge everyone to give some thought to volunteering to do one small task over the next twelve months that will make a difference and add another element to the "on track" success the club is experiencing. Take a leaf out of the books of the elite clubs. It is only those with strong administrators and culture that succeed consistently and over the long term. To maintain and build on our "on field" success we MUST broaden our "off field" talent and expertise.

Our coaches Wal Robinson, Nick Bowden and Jake Pedley deserve all the accolades we can give. Why do they coach? Because they live it and they love the satisfaction of seeing one of their charges achieving a PB and gaining the confidence and understanding that they CAN do something which they thought may be unattainable twelve months prior. It must give them all such great satisfaction to see the results their charges are now delivering. In fact I know it does. Long may it continue. Thanks to Pat Robinson who once again has worked tirelessly to ensure the club is on track to fulfill its administrative obligations and provide a safe and friendly environment for all members. Also thanks to Michael Georke, Greg Schofield, Alex McCullum, Brian Carter and Alex Nolan for their contributions at committee meetings. Finally thanks to Andrew Nagle for his contribution to the social side of the club's activities as well as Stu Cooper who remains a real stalwart in producing the SSH Journal every quarter.

SECRETARY’S REPORT I have pleasure in presenting my Report for the year ended 31 March 2014. Membership The number of registered competing members in 2013-2014 was fifty-five (42 male and 13 female) compared to 53 (31 male and 22 female) in 2012-2013, an increase in membership of two. Of the fifty-five members 39 were open age and 16 under age. Winter Competition The Club appreciates the efforts of our Cross Country Captain, Greg Schofield, who carried out his duties with enthusiasm, as well as the support given to Greg from Coach Wal Robinson. It was a very successful winter season with some notable individual performances and the Men’s Division 3 team comfortably winning the Premiership, promoting them to Division 2 in 2014. Congratulations to Kevin Craigie for his win in the club 8km Cross Country Championship and to Charlotte Anderson for her fourth successive win in the women’s Club Championship. Summer Competition Changes were made by Athletics Victoria for the 2013-14 Track and Field Season. Competition venues were increased from 3 to 4 (Red, White, Blue and Yellow Zones) and SSH competed in White Zone. Our competition venues remained the same with the exception of Doncaster. Box Hill was unavailable due to upgrading and White Zone competition was conducted over twelve rounds at Nunawading, Ringwood and Albert Park with the 2 top teams in each division progressing to the AV Shield finals. The noticeable change was less competitors and the earlier finish to programs. The men’s D1 team finished in 3rd place, women’s D1 in 4th and the men’s U16 finished a very creditable 4th/12. Four individual records were broken and again many achieved personal best performances. Congratulations to Xavier Smith for his Gold medal in the U17 800m at the Victorian Junior Championships and following up with Silver Medal in the National Junior Championships. Congratulations also to our Gold Medal team (Lachlan Aspinall, Kevin Craigie, Ben Buckingham and Cameron Clayton} for their efforts in the Men’s Open 4 x 800m Relay at the Victorian Relay Championships and to our women’s 4 x 800m team of Charlotte Anderson, Alice Craigie, Alice Carter and Whitney Sharpe who won Bronze. Coaching Wal Robinson continued in his role as Club Coach two days a week and his dedication and untiring efforts as coach, as well as the other tasks he performed, are very much appreciated. Jake Pedley took over the coaching of our young athletes who train at Wesley College on Thursdays and we thank Jake for his valuable contribution over the past twelve months. We are indebted to Nick Bowden who continues to coach a number of our talented athletes and we value his services. Officials SSH is rostered to supply helpers at Cross Country, Shield and Championship events and the Club is most appreciative of the assistance provided by our volunteer helpers. The club acknowledges the services of Peter Westwood who was an appointed Athletics Victoria Official each week at both winter and summer competitions and greatly appreciates his dedication.

Newsletter Many thanks to Stuart Cooper for his sterling efforts as Editor of our excellent newsletter, “The Journal,” During the year, where possible, the Journal was sent to members online which was both time and cost saving. Thanks also to Greg Schofield still printed copies for distribution to members and associates not able to receive the copy online. Sponsorship The annual Sponsorship donated by an SSH donor was not awarded in 2013/14 as no male or female qualified for the award. Fundraising and Social After the success of the previous year’s Trivia and Auction Night our Social Secretary, Andrew Nagle, tackled another with the same success. With a very good attendance, the profit raised was $1,479 and the club is most appreciative of the time and effort Andrew put into this event to make it so successful. The generosity of donors who continue to support the club is always appreciated. Thank you to our President, Greg Nolan, who kindly offered his home for the 2012/13 Annual General Meeting, barbecue and Presentations, and to Greg Schofield who made his home available for our committee meetings each month. In conclusion, I wish to thank President Greg Nolan for his support and leadership over the past twelve months, Treasurer Michael Goerke, Minute Secretary Alex MacCallum, Wal Robinson for his support and committee members for their contribution. I take this opportunity to wish the incoming committee, members and supporters a successful 2014-15. Pat Robinson Secretary

CROSS COUNTRY REPORT 2013 XCR13 Cross Country Relays – 27 April, Jells Park 6k Jells Park relays set a very high standard. Our MO Div 3 team came 2/14 and Cameron Gatt and Lachlan Aspinall both ran less than 20 minutes (see results). We welcome Samuel and Ben Quirk from Mirboo North, Luke Frazzetto and to Liam Dixon to complete with SSH. The commitment of these new members bides well for a great XCR13. XCR13 Road Relay 11 May, Sandown Racecourse 6.2k Running at Sandown on a bright Saturday afternoon holds a sense of occasion and Saturday 11 May was no exception. Great results of the MO Div 3 (2/14), MO Div 6 (line honours 1/11) and disappointing results for the WO teams, nevertheless with good individual performances. We especially thank our AV officials Alex MacCullum, Michael Goerke, Wendy Sharpe and Peter Westwood for representing SSH. XCR13 Road Race – 25 May, Lake Wendouree 15k Ballarat turned on a partly sunny afternoon for road racing around beautiful Lake Wendouree. SSH had two teams, M20 5k and MO 15k with good results. XCR13 Cross Country – 8 June, Brimbank Park 16k Our M3 team has done it again (1/14) and is heading for the Premiership and Div. 2 for 2014. Jamie 56.16.7 led the way in the 16k top 20 as he improves with every run and the reliable Lachlan 57.59.8 at 32nd, Luke (61st) 61.16.7 and Sam (71st) 61.49.5 have given us some of the depth we've needed to be a Div. 2 team. Team man Nagle 68.50.7 was our 5th runner that sealed the victory. David Kipp 71.20.5 and brother Michael 93.34 backed up for us. Well done Michael for your first time over a long distance. Well done the girls who made a team to fight off relegation. Erin 26.49.9, Sally 27.32.4, Alice Carter 28.30.9 and Bec 29.11.9 did the job for us. In the Boys -20 6k Ben Quirk did 21.51.8 (8th) and Dan ran 22.16.3 (13th). Unfortunately Cam had to pull out. Georgia ran a solid 4k in 15.58 by invitation. XCR13 Cross Country – 21 July, Bundoora Park 12k Wal reported: Our top Mens' team won again and the gap is widening! Ladder after Bundoora

M3 – 1


2 Nunawading

3 Doncaster.

Terrific runs from Kevin Craingie (26th), Lachlan Aspinall (32nd), Jamie Wagstaff (43rd), Ben Buckingham (93rd) and Andrew Nagle (111th) in a big final sprint just pipping Sam to make the top team with our depth pushing us towards M2 for 2014. WO 8K Div 2 were 3rd with great runs from Charlotte (25th), Georgia (61st), Erin (66th) and Alice Carter (100th.). These points are staving off relegation territory with Albert Park 10k, Lardner Park 4k and the Burnley Half Marathon now crucial. The MO Div 6 team were 4/18 and did a marvellous job with Sam (112th), David Kipp (232nd), Brian (302nd) and Michael Kipp (361). Our M20 were disappointed with their 5/7 with Cameron Gatt (16th), Ben Quirk (19th), Daniel Mitchell (21st) & Matt Nolan (28th). It was great to watch a really classy run from fast improving Ben Quirk.

XCR13 Coliban Ekiden Relay – 13 July, Harcourt to Bendigo This event is not being run in 2013 due to safety concerns by the Bendigo Police. A new safer course is most probable in 2014. XCR13 Road Race Albert Park 28th July, Albert Part The AV 10k has a tradition of being a nationally contested fast road race, previously held at Sandown and Flemington. This year AV premiered the 10k race at Albert Park Lake, at the home of Athletics Victoria, and it did not disappoint. Near perfect conditions applied over a flat scenic course. Two of our athletes clipped less than 33 minutes that is Lachlan Aspinall 32.32 and Kevin Craigie 32.54. XCR13 Cross Country – 10 August , Lardner Park 8k Lardner Park turned on a fine weather in the beautiful Gippsland hills. The SSH cross country championships were run as part of this meet. Charlotte Anderson who took out the Pat Robinson Trophy for WO 4k and Kevin Craigie who took out the Langford Trophy for MO 8k. Great results – MO div 3 1/9, MO div 6 2/4 and WO div 2 2/8. XCR13 Half-Marathon – 8 September, Burnley 21k The Burnley half marathon is a test of endurance. In previous years it has been difficult to fill our teams, but not this year. We competed with a MO team and a WO team, thanks to the dedication of our athletes. Such sterling efforts kept SSH competitive in the aggregate scores. My scorcher award went to father and son team of Sam Quirk and father Stephen Quirk 78.08 XCR13 TAN Relays – 21 September, King’s Domain 3.8k A win, a win, a spectacular win for our MO div 3 team! This final event for the year graduated our MO team up to div 2 for 2014. My scorcher award went to Sam Quirk, Harrison Lagastes and Jake Pedley. Great efforts! Had our div 3 team (Aggregate time: 58.55 plus 11.55 = 70.50) competed in div 2 or div 1 with a six man team including Sam Quirk, SSH would have topped out div 2 and come 4th in div 1! End of season results 2013 has been great for SSH. Finally our MO top team has made it to the prestigious div 2 in 2014. Our top WO team lacked consistency and could have taken out WO div 2. Next year! MO Div 3 MO Div 6 MO Div 7 WO Div 2 WO Div 3 M20

1/14 (by 17 points) Up to div 2 for 2014 4/15 7/25 T1 14/25 T2 5/16 Strong result given 6 finishes at the 9 meets 17/19 7/12

I am grateful to all those who have lent their support to SSH, that is friends and family who drive, record and do what is necessary to have SSH compete. As ever, Wal, Pat and Nick have made my job a great pleasure and their efforts are appreciated. Their persistence and co-operation have made 2013 such a success. A team effort all round. I look forward to the 2014 XC season, with our MO and WO div 2 teams striving for div 1. Greg Schofield CC Captain 2013

WOMEN’S TRACK AND FIELD REPORT Another year has been and gone and in its midst a number of fantastic achievements were made by the members of the SSH women’s track and field team. Although we finished fourth that by no means indicated the effort and team work made by our members. We were unfortunately disadvantaged by a lack of numbers which resulted in us missing out on finals but I’m sure we will make up for it next season! A change in the regions meant we were this year in the “White zone” eliminating our rivals Collingwood, Diamond Valley, Richmond, Doncaster and Ivanhoe. It did however provide us with strong competition by Waverley and South Melbourne. We were also fortunate enough to have limited meetings cancelled by the heat, allowing many more PBs and SBs to be made on the track. Social events were also a highlight of the season allowing us to relax, catch up and compare sunburn marks from the day’s events! The dinner at Coopers Inn was a great night, including an inspiring talk by David Eadie, an elite endurance athlete. I can’t say how many of us will end up running an ultra marathon but it definitely put our normal training nights to shame! Also, a very special thank you to the number of people behind the scenes who make competing every week possible. To our coaches, Wal Robinson and Nick Bowden who allow our athletes to strive to be their best. To the officials and helpers including the amazing Pat Robinson, we are forever grateful for the hard work you all put in every Saturday, come rain, hail or shine. Lastly to the parents who provide transport, assist in official duties and support all our athletes, you all help to make our club fantastic. I hope you all enjoyed the season’s competition and allow the Commonwealth Games to provide inspiration for next season. See you all at the track to make finals!

MEN’S TRACK AND FIELD REPORT 2013/14 The boys of summer were back again for the 2013/14 season competing in Division 1. The theme over the year seemed to be quality over quantity. Unfortunately, we found that quality, and all the hard work and dedication that goes along with it, were not enough to get the team to the Shield Finals. Too often this season we found ourselves relying on too few, through injuries and lack of team depth, to carry the team. For us to compete going forward we need greater number in the throws to assist the ever present Graeme Rose, greater depth in the sprints and a few men who can fly through air in the jumps. A real positive note for the future however was the efforts of the under 16 boys who seemed to pull out PB’s week after week. Their continued improvement, along with our younger open boys, will be something to keep a keen eye on!

Well that might be the future, let’s have a look at the successes of this season past. There was the return of Cam Clayton for a full season, stretching himself as usual throughout multiple events. Brian Carter taking on the Javelin and succeeding with a new PB! Young Xavier Smith winning the Under 17 state 800m, and continuing that fine form on to the Australian Junior Championships where he finished 2nd. Matt Nolan consistently running PB’s in the 1500m throughout the season. Ben Buckingham showing us all what he’s capable of, with an 8.22.2 min in a hotly contested 3000m at a Victorian Milers Club meet, and even myself breaking a 9 year hoodoo and getting in the 1.50’s in the 800m. So as you can see there is a lot of quality in our SSH team, let’s hope we can add to the quantity going forward.

Well done to all who participated this year, can’t wait to see you all back in the 14/15 summer season.

F1 ST. STEPHENS HARRIERS ATHLETIC CLUB INC. TREASURER’S REPORT ON THE FINANCIAL REPORT 31 MARCH 2014 The accompanying Statement of Financial Position shows that the Club has total accumulated funds of $30,883 as at 31 March 2014 compared with total accumulated funds $28,703 as at 31 March 2013, that is to say net assets have increased by $2,180 over the previous year. The following three funds are the only funds of the Club and the first two funds explain the reasons for the increase in net assets of $2,180. General Fund The accompanying Statement of Financial Performance shows a net surplus in the General Fund of $2,217 for 2014 compared with a net surplus of $3,509 for 2013. The downturn of $1,292 is due mainly to a decrease of $566 in the run off of sales of SSH Centenary books, a decrease of $395 in net surpluses from functions and an increase of $700 in the cost of Athletics Victoria registrations, which were all offset from small decreases totalling $638 in most expenses. Uniform Fund The accompanying Statement of Financial Performance shows a deficit of $37 in the Uniform Fund for 2014 compared with a deficit of $28 for 2013. These deficits are due mainly to uniforms being sold at or near cost prices. Sponsorship Fund (Note 5) Interest earned on the term deposit of $8,000 supporting this fund is transferred to the General and Uniform Funds to cover the cost of subscriptions and uniforms for athletes selected by the Committee each year to receive the sponsorship. Provision for Costs of Producing SSH Centenary Book (Note 3) Note 3 shows there are no movements in this account this year since all costs were written off in the prior year to the General Fund. So sales of unsold books held at the end of the previous year are now shown in the General Fund as noted above. Provision for Costs of Club Development (Note 4) The entries in this account are receipts from contributions less any payments for costs incurred for such items as uniform/equipment purchases, venue hire, athlete sponsorship to national titles, coaching courses and reimbursement of coach’s expenses. Note 4 shows the movement in this account to 31 March 2014 with the balance of $926 (2013: $717) to be used for costs still to be incurred. Once again my grateful thanks go to Pat Robinson for the sterling effort she puts in each year in managing the day-to-day finances of the Club, and also to Andrew Nagle and Brian Carter in organising the successful Trivia Night and an equally successful dinner.

Sponsorship Fund An old boy of the Club sponsors each year a promising under 20 Wesley College male athlete and female athlete or athlete nominated by the Club. Sponsorship covers the costs of their Club’s subscriptions and uniforms and is financed from the interest on the $8,000 donated by the sponsor to the Club and invested in a short term deposit. As in prior years interest received this year was transferred to the General and Uniform Funds to cover the cost of subscriptions and uniforms for the sponsored athletes. Because the Club has sufficient funds to pay for their sponsorships the interest received is reinvested back into the sponsorship short term deposit. The accumulated interest received to date totalling $1,983 is classified in the books as a debtor rather than as an increase in the term deposit.
