1. Retiring President: Graeme Lowndes

Graeme had enjoyed his term as President in this being the run up to the Olympic Games in the UK. It had been a good feeling if only for a short time to have been an Ambassador for athletics in Hampshire.

The highlight of his term in office had been the Track and Field and Multi Events Championships at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth. The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth had attended along with the Leader of Portsmouth City Council, and many of the Past Presidents of HAA had also attended as guests and they had been of great assistance to Greame throughout the championships.

5. Increase to affiliation Fee

A lengthy discussion took place regarding increasing the clubs' affiliation fee; it was unanimously agreed that this should be increased to 75.00 from 2013 onwards.

6. Future Cross Country Selection process for the CAU (National) Inter Counties Championships

All agreed that the following selection policy is applied to all age groups up to and including U17s:

Hampshire Athletics will endeavour to select the strongest teams from available athletes who have competed at the Hampshire Athletics Cross Country Championships.

Athletes wishing to be considered for selection are expected to take part in our cross country championships. However, other athletes who have entered but not competed on the day through illness or injury may also be considered for selection. Athletes who are unable to compete through non-availability but wish to be considered for selection must notify the team manager preferably before the championships.

The first 4 athletes to finish in the Hampshire Athletics Cross Country Championships will gain automatic selection, the remaining 4 places will be determined on athletes performances in a range of events.

In particular performances at the following events will be assessed.

  • Hampshire Schools Championships
  • Hampshire League performances
  • Inter Counties Southern Championships held in December
  • Southern Championships held in January
  • UK Cross Challenge events

The starting pen order will be determined by the team manager.
