- The more club sessions and
events that you come along to, the
more you will feel part of the club. This is by far and away the best
way to be in touch.
- Every Saturday morning after
the club run we
gather back at the Oven King Bakery, 119 Colburn Avenue for a talk,
coffee and (most weeks) birthday cake. Each time we have a brief list
of announcements about upcoming activities as well as the opportunity
to congratulate any recent achievements for members.
- There are other regular
throughout the week. Most of these invariably include coffee and a chat
afterwards. You will hear about all sorts of things at these
- Facebook is used extensively to involve members.
There are two Facebook sites, one is for financial members only. The
second, whilst not open to the public, has a wider circulation with
many past members as well as friends and family able to access it.
- The Members-only Facebook page is where official
club announcements and any announcements by members to organise runs
are posted. You need to initiate a request to join this page – “Bayside
Runners and Walkers (members only)”. One of the administrators will
then check that you are a financial member before accepting your
- Our second Facebook page is for more general
social chit-chat and banter, as well as photographs, and even some
non-running related chat. You need to also initiate a request to join
this page – “Brisbane Bayside Runners & Walkers”. One of the
administrators will assess whether you are known to the club (but not
necessarily a financial member) before accepting your request.
- Information about the club is on our web-site
- On the second Thursday of every second month
(February, April, June, August, October, and December) we have a club
meeting starting at 7:00 pm at the Sharks Sporting Club, Victoria
Point. These meetings go for just over an hour and is where we make the
decisions about the club’s activities. All members are invited to
attend. The minutes of each of the bi-monthly meetings are
emailed to all members. Other more significant messages are also
emailed out to members.
- Finally, if you have a question, ask one of the
members – if they don’t know, they will soon point you in the direction
of someone who does.
