JC Purewater T&F

The Purewater/JC/R. Danny Williams Track & Field development meet started 30 years ago. Each year a team of about 30 meet in the evenings for a couple of months, planning this annual event. Led by JC Old Boy, Mr. Ian Forbes the team is actioned into a well-oiled-machine that works tirelessly behind the scenes. Each of the 30 who meet, have their own support team to manage, communicate to and discuss ideas. Many of the hardworking team is seen around the track and premises from a couple nights before, to a couple hours after the event. The ICT & Ancillary team are usually the last to leave JC. With challenges at times, we work as a team and overcome them. Always able to look back and see the execution was a job well done and any suggestions given, taken on for the following year.

The Captain of the “ship” always present to ensure all is well and if there are any hitches, he will unhitch.
