Committee Summary March 2019

Posted on

  • Our onepiece uniform has been approved, and a compression top sample is being produced. Contact Mark Howard if interested.
  •  Due to high visitor numbers at our events a committee member will be available to assist Andrew at the visitors table.
  •  The Darlington Dash will now start at Glen Forest and go towards Darlington and back. This is primarily for safety reasons to avoid road crossings.  The new course will be 5.5km and 11km.
  •  Due to high entry numbers we expect to make a surplus on the State Champs. The committee have approved purchase of a second windgauge and a lapcounter/bell.

Sadly one of MAWA’s amazing life members has passed away on 1 March aged 84 yrs

Joining MAWA in 2003 and awarded life membership in 2014 Les was the tireless and dedicated master of our long/triple jump pits for over a decade and worked as a jumps official for our MAWA and AMA Championships. As a non-competitor he selflessly volunteered and committed his time to the club and our athletes for which he will be long remembered.

Members are welcome to attend the funeral service which will be held at the West Chapel Pinnaroo, Whitfords Ave Padbury on:

Monday 11 March at 3pm
