It is with great sadness that we learn of the sad loss of our former STO Convenor, Alistair Shields who passed away today, 9th July 2024.
Alistair Shields’ commitment started with being talked into taking a timekeeping course. ‘You are only working a stopwatch, don’t worry about it.’ After completing his timekeeping course in 1996 Alistair moved on to judging when it was exam based, completing this in 1998. Having passed the recorders exam Alistair qualified as a referee in 2009.
He attended as many club, Lothian Region, District and National as possible.
In 2013 Alistair became East District STO Convenor, overseeing many changes and taking on the training to young volunteers to make it easy to follow through.
Our thoughts are with Alistair’s family and friends at this sad time
