Athletics: Weather postpones Pitreavie meeting

The organisers of the second Pitreavie Gift professional 
athletics meeting, due to have taken place at Pitreavie 
Stadium on Sunday, have sensibly decided to postpone the event until March because of the threat of bad weather.

The new date is Sunday March 24, which was the date held in reserve by the organisers for such an eventuality 
and is just one week before Easter weekend, when the 
famous Stawell Easter Gift professional meeting, the inspiration for the Fife event, takes place in Victoria, Australia.

“We really had no option but to move to Plan B,” said Ron Sutherland, chairman of the 
organising committee.

“Our main responsibility is to ensure the interests of the athletes come first, but we also have a responsibility to protect the travelling public and all spectators.”
