During the proceedings, it was mentioned that over this last year, an incredible 70 TREC events had been held throughout Ireland, of which Leinster TREC had run the most at 20!
A new TREC Ireland Committee was also elected for the next year, with some of our own Leinster TREC members and supporters now on the National Committee and we congratulate them on their new positions.
Celia Taylor is Vice-Chairperson as well as Assistant Treasurer.
Grainne Ni Uid is also Assistant Treasurer.
Karen Reilly is Assistant PRO.
Of general interest to members was the information that a new TREC Ireland Rule Book is due to be published shortly and should be available from early January.
A new TREC Ireland Information leaflet was also handed out on the day.
Some important competition dates were also announced for 2014 and so far these are:
April 4-6: Dingle 2-day, 3-phase event
May 23-25: Open Championships. Venue: Slieve Aughty.
June 20-22: West Cork 2-day, 3-phase event
July 25-27: National Championships. Venue: tba
At the close of the Meeting, a number of Special Awards from TREC Ireland were announced. These are given to members and supporters who travel widely on behalf of TREC and give so much of their time and effort voluntarily on a National as well as a local level.
We are thrilled to say that several of these awards went to Leinster TREC members and supporters and delighted that they have been acknowledged in this way.
