New timing gates
Our current electronic timing gates were introduced at HDLAC in the 2012/2013 season and after four years of solid use, the Committee has decided to replace our aging, worn out gates with new, state-of-the-art timing gates. This system will synchronise with a number of other systems that will be introduced progressively during the season. The new gates are very light weight and very easy to set up and our new Track Officer (whoever than might be!) will find them a delight to use. Check out the brochure describing the system.
Most of the Committee positions have been filled and we now have a complete Executive Committee. Thank you to those parents who have volunteered to manage your Centre for the coming season. There as still a few positions that need to be filled and these are shown as vacant on the Committee page.
McDonalds equipment grant
We're pleased to announce that the Centre was successful in its application for a $1000 McDonalds equipment grant! We will be now be able to replace a number of our aging hurdles with brand new ones, thanks to the generosity of McDonalds Family Restaurants. More details to follow!

HDLAC Bushfire Survival Plan
If there is a danger of bushfires anywhere in the Lane Cove National Park, we will cancel our athletics competition prior to the Saturday morning competition day. It is likely that a decision to cancel would be made no later than the preceding Friday night and this would be notified to members by a notice on our website and by broadcast email. There would never be a situation where competition has commenced on a Saturday morning when there is any danger of bushfires. We would never be in the position of having to send members home from the oval. More...
