Just to remind members that the MAWA insurance through AMA affiliation covers Third Party, but not personal accident. If members want to be covered for personal accident while competing in a MAWA event, they can get this cover by registering with AWA. This can be done through the AWA website, and costs $20 per year.
Go to magazines tab, or click on this link.
It is apparent from recent discussions that many members do not realise that certain elements of the website are searchable, using the search box at the top of the sidebar. You can search Sunday run and Tuesday/Thursday T & F meets, as well as past news items. So if you want to know your time in say the 2012 Bardon Bash, just type in your name, Bardon Bash, and 2012 and it will immediately be found.
The Patron’s Trophy has completed 10 of the 14 events, and there is now a break until mid January. Here is the current position: Patron’s Trophy interim points
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.
If viewing the PDF, once loaded go to View/Page display/two page view to see the double page spreads.
