   service so far.

    with 11members of the public joined up so far.

   There have been 84 new gym users enrolled so far this year.

   Both gh1 + 2 have been extremely busy during the summer term, lots of training
    programmes being taken daily from clients wanting to improve health to
    competing in triathlons

   Due to the ever-increasing demand for new and advanced tanning products, usage
    of the greenhouse sunbeds has taken a heavy decline over the past year and a half.
    We have decided to look at removing two of the sunbeds in the hope of launching
    a sports therapy and massage clinic in its place for autumn term. This service will
    be aimed at everyone from the athlete to the recreational user.

Proposal to increase the cost of a student Sportscard
The group considered the paper by the Sports & Recreation Manager proposing to
increase the cost of a student sportscard to £47 for the next academic year.

After some discussion this was agreed by all the committee.


Any Other Business
   The signs asking people to park only on the sports facilities side of Manor Road
    were considered a good idea. It was considered that the particular problem of
    parking too close to entries/exits was the real issue. It was considered whether
    the kerbs could be marked to discourage this
   Juliet Bailey asked if people could have plenty of advanced notice as to when
    the changing rooms at MR would be closed for refurbishment
   The squash courts were in good condition with everything working
   The Sports Association in conjunction with the Alumni association were
    entering a team into the Edinburgh Marathon to be held in June 2006 to raise
    funds for the Alumni Student Hardship Fund. So far 50 had signed up, either for
    the full marathon or to run 5k within the full distance. It was hoped to form
    running groups to aid training.
