Hi everyone,

Week one is now officially completed. The committee worked hard to ensure we were set up safely, ready for the challenges and the athletes could still have fun. The General committee met on Tuesday night and discussed what worked well and areas we need to improve as a club in order for us to meet our COVID obligations and some updates have been made.  Whilst these may change again depending on LAVIC and Govt. announcements, changes for this Saturday include;

COVID-19 Officers

Unfortunately we are unable to run the event without the required number of COVID Officers. We require COVID Officers in designated areas whose role is to primarily make sure the area isn’t congested, spot and equipment sanitisation is happening and in the case of entry gate- ensure everyone is signing in either manually with the QR code.

Sign up is below and please see Holger Philipp if you are a COVID-19 Officer and he will direct you on the day.

We have bright coloured Covid Officer vests on order which will make the officers easily identifiable. In the meantime until the order arrives we will use plain bright yellow vests to identify these roles. 


We have had to change the system how we serve, however the lack of help in the canteen especially ,as it is always left to a few people stuck in there all morning. Every bit helps and we try to break the  shift times so we can all see our children. Whilst the canteen is our only ongoing revenue source for our club, we do not want to be in a position where we have to close the canteen due to lack of volunteers.

Below is the link where you can sign up. Please see Bernie our canteen manager on the day.

Entry/ Exit

It is ENTRY ONLY at the usual main gate.

It is EXIT ONLY at Gate 2. Gate 2 is where the 200 meters would normally start. This will be highlighted more clearly from this week onwards. It a little further walk, however it is a requirement for us to have two separate points


There will be much more signage around the track to helping to guide and direct you around the track, entry/exit points

Traffic Flow

The registrations area/uniform as well as the canteen areas is one way only with a limited number of people allowed in the area.

Along the fence in front of the grandstand is a pathway. Please limit your time there so that people may pass and traffic can flow easily. You will be ask to move if you are spending too much time there.


As the weather warms up and to help with traffic congestion, the grandstand is a great place to watch. Just a reminder to stay within your family groups and distance yourself from others.


Whilst we ask that all of our members wear a mask, we understand that some people have medical reason not to wear a mask. some people may be more susceptible than others and are concerned for their own health. Please be mindful of others around you and move to an area all of us are comfortable with and can still enjoy the athletics.  If you require a mask, we sell them with the Cranbourne logo for $10 in the uniform shop.

New Families

We welcome all new families who have joined us this season – amongst all of the changes due to Covid-19 we still want to highly prioritise welcoming you and your family and helping you orientate and settle into our club. This is going to be a wonderful season! Please speak to a member of the committee (wearing cranbourne polo tops) if you had any questions or just to say hi and introduce yourself.

Thank you and here’s to another fun and safe Saturday
