Memorial Tribute to Jerry Everett Statment from Orwell Panthers AC :- I confirm that we are proiceeding with our Memorial Tribute to Jerry on Sunday 11th October 2009 at Northgate Stadium Ipswich.
We are holding an indoor sportshall competion for our young athletes between 11 and 3.15. AT the same time our elite athletes will be contesting a Pentathlon on the track outside.
At approximately 3.15pm it is proposed that the whole club together with visiting athletes will take to the track for a Memorial walk. I envisage that this will probably be over 4 laps of the track or for say 20 minutes depending on ability.
Last evening at a Suffolk County Committee Meeting the Race Walking Secretary, Ron Wallwark, suggested that he might contact some race walkers to invite them to "The Memorial Walk".

8 – 10 years Athletics. Due to the high number of youngsters taking up athletics we have, regrettably, had to close the imps groups. Those who are already in the group will remain there. Any who are on the waiting list will stay on that list but will not be able to start their training until after their 10th birthday and availablity of places within the older groups. As soon as places become available we will start to contact those whose names we have already taken. If there is any parent who would like to become a coach for that age group or would like to know more please speak to either Karen Wheat or Linda Garnham.
