Message from Club Chairman to Members

<img src="" alt="" /> Dear member, Sometimes it seems we will never repay the debt we owe so many DSD legends and volunteers who built such a great club. They are truly the giants on whose shoulders we stand on looking to build a bigger and better club for the future. I know, I and my family have gotten so much from our involvement with DSD over the years in terms of friendships, fun and all the benefits that come from training and competing in the various track and field disciplines. As the largest athletics club in Dublin, we have great plans for the future, as you know. The club has purchased a site at Saint Thomas where we hope to have running trails, sprint tracks, top class facilities for throwers and jumpers. Our ambitious plans are for safe and fun facilities for our juvenile members, training facilities for everyone from social runners to elite competitors, from juveniles to masters and covering all the track and field disciplines. We want to offer top class facilities for all our members regardless of age or ability. <img src="" alt="12471926_10153813825938851_1709513101068880652_o.jpg" /> <img src="" alt="12484644_10153813816973851_8321693206756949807_o.jpg" /> <img src="" alt="12473970_10153813795018851_325603071421954535_o.jpg" /> <img src="" alt="13708429_10154309122158851_3824136192630547137_o.jpg" /> <img src="" alt="13719623_10154043041394934_3561664660115406880_o.jpg" /> <img src="" alt="1890538_1464548407135606_8247752379689432711_o.jpg" />
We rely on raising our own funds in the main and that is why events like the Twilight 5k are so important in raising funds for the club in helping us realise our dreams. We really need your help and I am asking that all members and parents would try to organise to enter a team of walkers, runners or joggers. Individual entries are also welcome. As you know the Twilight 5k run takes place on Thursday, September 29th starting at 7.30pm around Sandyford. You have just ten days left to register so please act now to ensure you receive a wonderful technical tee shirt, commemorative medal and goody bag. To enter simply visit our website at – its really easy to enter but if you have any queries please drop us a line. We guarantee you a great night’s fun including a great post-race reception for all in the Spirit Skoda showroom. Every entry will help us with our plans for all our members and future generations so please take a few minutes to organise your team entry. I look forward to seeing a great turnout of DSD members on the night and wish to thank all those club members who have already volunteered a huge amount of time in organising this great new 5k. Can I also ask you to share this email or have a word with former members or friends whom you know have an interest or affection for the club. Declan Ryan
DSD AC Chairman
