ANZAC of the year

Posted on

Congratulations to MAWA Member Dave Scott who has been awarded the honour of ANZAC of year! Also famous for his bugling – see Vetrun Extra for article!

Donations

Posted on

I would like to personally thank the 63 members who donated their State Championship entry fees to the club rather than request a refund.

This raised around $2500 which roughly matched our unrecoverable costs, mainly in printing the programme.

ANZAC Day

Posted on

Run Gallipoli – Solo!

In Vetrun Extra April 18 Mark Dawson has written his suggestion for a safe and respectful way members can mark Anzac Day on Saturday April 25 – by making solo or duo runs after the driveway dawn service (instead of the Gallipoli Run which was to have been on 19 April).

Hit the Vetrun Extra link for details.

Keeping in Touch

Posted on

As we enter this period with no club events the committee feel it is important that we keep in touch with our fellow athletes. How are you keeping fit, and what interesting is happening in your life.
To facilitate this the club has introduced two initiatives:
1. Vic will be maintaining a ‘Vetrun Extra’ page on the website, reached from a button on the home page. This will contain member stories and relevant items. Please send material for this page directly to Vic
2. We will reinvigorate the MAWA Closed Facebook page. To join the community contact Jen, (gazandjenny@gmail.com), or Silke, (Peglowsilke@hotmail.com), to get your name added to the group. Post anything you think might be of interest, and generate some lively debate.

MAWA track meets

Posted on

The Prime Minister’s statement this evening made it clear that it is now not ok for a group of 10 or more to congregate even in an open space.

MAWA is therefore cancelling our Tuesday and Thursday track meets with immediate effect.

WAAS tonight

Posted on

John Dennehy was due to open up tonight but unfortunately he has just been called to a meeting tonight and cannot be there. We are unable to get the keys to anyone else at such short notice, so our programme is cancelled.

Of course you are welcome to train, but please follow the protocol of not standing within 1.5 metres from other athletes.
