Stunning 10000m from Roberto
As Jim Barnes will tell you anyone who can break a Frank Smith record is a truly great athlete. Well Roberto Busi did it at the State 10000m Championships on Friday, setting a time of 31:48.53 to beat Frank’s M45 State Record by over 50 seconds.
Roberto’s time was only 6 seconds off the Australian record set by Dave Power way back in 1973.
Track and Field Programme Revised
On 6th October VenuesWest announced that the re-surface of WAAS would be postponed for a year.
As a consequence we have booked the venue and will start a track and field programme at WAAS every Tuesday commencing on 12th October at 6:30pm. Our thanks go to David Adams, Mike Anderson and Mark Dawson for agreeing to run the event.
A revised Summer Programme is now on the website. Note that the throws programme at ECAC has been substantially revised to reflect the fact that we now also have throws on a Tuesday.
We have been unable to arrange for anyone to officiate at jumps and throws on a Tuesday, so athletes wishing to do the field events will have to self-organise.
Patron’s Trophy requires a ‘level playing field’ at both venues with good timekeeping and judged field events. For this year we can’t be sure this will be achieved at WAAS and hence the Patron’s Trophy will be at ECAC only.
Tuesday Track and Field
it was announced yesterday that the re-surface at WAAS has been postponed for a year.

LAST DAYS TO RENEW MEMBERSHIP
If you do not renew by end of Thursday you will cease to be a member and will have to rejoin. Not only will this cost you an extra $10 but will lead to extra work for our registrar.
Tuesday Track and Field
With WAAS closed until February we have looked for an alternative Northern Suburbs venue. We have looked at 5 different options but unfortunately none are available for booking. Dianella is free but there is a problem with their power which may not be fixed soon. If and when Stirling advise it is fixed we may consider that further.
For the present we will just have ECAC on Thursdays and the summer programme will be published soon.
We will obviously advise if we decide to go ahead with Dianella but it will not be before November.
