Committee Summary December to March

Posted on
  • A new club logo was agreed. The club will be re-branded with the new logo – website, correspondence, uniform, certificates, Sunday tags etc.
  • The new logo will be placed on future orders of uniforms. Opportunity is being taken to look at alternative suppliers – WA supplier is preferred to reduce shipment times. Most suppliers now take orders directly, eliminating the need for the club to hold large stocks.
  • Arrangements were made for the ABC to do news item on the club, which was filmed at ECAC. While the main focus was David’s World Record spree, it was a good overall promotion for the club.
  • The Race Director information pack is now on the website and will be kept up to date as changes are made.
  • AMA have modified its Race Walking rules for over 65’s to allow a more lenient interpretation. Note this only applies to Masters events within Australia.
