Little A’s to fold?

The Cobar Little A’s athletics club is in danger of folding if a new committee is not soon elected.

Outgoing club president Tegan Gilbert said they have made two attempts to hold an annual general meeting and neither was very well attended.

“At the last meeting there was only Rebecca Everett [the vice president] and I,” Tegan said.

Tegan said a number of past committee members had left town or (like herself), were not able to commit to serving on the committee again this year.

Little A’s has always been a popular sport in Cobar. The club had 58 kids registered last season and 76 the year before.

“It would be a shame if Little A’s had to fold and quite a few kids will miss out on participating,” Tegan said.

“Little A’s is a good experience for kids, they get to try different events and learn the rules and regulations.

“It’s a social and fun experience.”

For the more serious and committed athletes, there’s also the opportunity of competing at Zone, Regional, State and National carnivals.

“We need at least five people for the committee and we hope they do come along to our third AGM on October 7 so the club doesn’t fold.”
