How to attract younger people to our Veterans Athletic Club, part 103:
(a) Move to ANU to be among the youth. Replace Vetrunner with a comic strip. Call it "Track Masters of the University". Buy He-man costumes for the throwers, Skeletor costumes for the long distance runners. Wage war games.
(b) Buy more containers and hire graffiti "artists" to deface them. Ring the Canberra Times and complain. Lots of free publicity ensues!
(c) Spice up our race meetings by inviting along the Spice Girls, Britney, and other celebrities.
(Actually that last one might work quite well for our demographic)

Real suggestions welcome, I'm compiling a list.

  1. Change the club's name to "Canberra running and novelty events club for the age-challenged".

    Change the age of "age-challenged" to 25.

  2. Catchy acronym - "CRANECTAC". Rhymes with "panic attack".
