Vale Paul Di-Ienno
It is with extreme shock and sadness we inform you of the death of Paul Di-Ienno in a road traffic accident late last week.
Paul’s 3 children have been registered with Northern Suburbs for a very long time, and Paul was previously an Age Manager for their groups. He has always been a regular attendee at Rotary on a Saturday morning, until recently when he took a job teaching in Coonabarabran, where the accident happened. We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Karen and children Tim, Kate and Matthew at this very difficult time.
Paul's funeral will be held at 10:15am on Monday 20 June at the Northern Suburbs Crematorium (Nth Chapel). Afterwards (12:30) at the Life Source Christian Church, 175 Lower Gibbes St, Chatswood.
Online entries for the State Cross Country Championships are now open. The Cross Country Championships are at the Willandra course on Browns Mountain Rd, Tapitallee - Nowra on Sunday 26 June 2016. Entries close at midnight on Wednesday 22 June 2016. Full details of the event can be found on the LANSW website.
The State Cross Country Championships results will contribute to the 2016-17 season Club and Junior championships points.
Vale Chris Fuller
We are deeply saddened to inform you of the passing of Chris Fuller on 2 June 2016. Chris has been on our Club Coaching Panel since the 2008/2008 season. Throughout those years he has been unfailingly reliable and has always made himself available to assist NSLAC athletes as and when required. Initially Chris coached just sprints, but his involvement gradually grew to encompass both middle distance and relays coaching.
Chris has provided invaluable assistance and teachings to not only our athletes but also our parents, particularly in the area of relays, making sure everyone knew the rules, where to stand and how to execute a correct and precise baton change within the changeover zone.
Chris will be sorely missed by the entire Northern Suburbs Little Athletics community and we extend our deepest sympathy to his family at this time. Chris’s funeral will be held at Northern Suburbs Northside Chapel at 11.15am on Wednesday 8 June 2016. You are welcome to leave a message at this condolences page.
