A strong contingent of MAWA athletes attended the World Championships in Porto Alegre, Brazil and a special edition of Track and Field Newsletter (TFNL) has been produced.
Thanks to everyone who have contributed stories and photographs. This World Champs TFNL has covered more kilometres than any previous edition. The first pages were generated in WA and added to in Chile, Brazil and Argentina. Hopefully some of the colour of South America is reflected in the pages you read.
The virtual book is available at virtual book. When the page loads, click on the front cover for a full screen view. Previous editions will be to the right of screen.
For iPad users download the PDF from the website and save it into iBooks. You will find TFNL in collections/PDF.
MAWA is 40 years young in 2014, and to mark the occasion there will be a celebration after the McCallum Lakes Event on 9th February. All members are invited, and we would love to see Track and Field runners coming along as well. Take this opportunity to chat to Life Members and Past Presidents about how the club evolved.
In addition, this will be the first opportunity to obtain your copy of Christine Oldfield’s book celebrating the 40 years of the club. Details of how to order and of the special ‘Early Bird’ price will be available very shortly.
Formalities will start at 8:15 followed by refreshments and birthday cake.

Congratulations to new member Chris Anderson for an outstanding high jump at Strive last night of 1.85m, smashing the M45 state record by 25cm. This is in fact the highest jump ever achieved by a MAWA member in competition.
High Jump at ECAC this week
As John Oldfield will be very busy on 2 Patron’s Trophy events this week, the scheduled high jump will be postponed until next week, Thursday 28th November. Hope this does not inconvenience anyone too much.
