Important notice to Members – 2018 AMA Nationals
Please see below an important note to all members from 2018 AMA Nationals Treasurer Keith Hill
“Fellow Masters Athletes,
As many of you will be already be aware, MAWA has responsibility for organising the 2018 AMA Nationals here in Perth. This will take place over the period 26-29 April. There is considerable cost involved in staging an event of this scale. Much of this cost is borne by entry fees. However if we are to keep the entry costs within acceptable limits, and ensure that MAWA does not make a financial loss, then we will need to partner with event sponsors. The best way to secure committed sponsors is through personal contact. The committee has produced a sponsorship proposal document and will be spreading its net as wide as possible. However, we are also asking for your help. If you think the companies and organisations that you work for, and with, might have a community support budget or would be interested in providing sponsorship, please provide a committee member with contact details and we can take it from there.
Reminder – Registrations for the AMA Championships in Darwin close 1st May! Please click on the following links:
Please note that the run starts at 8am NOT the 9am time stated on our Sunday Programme
If anyone lost clothing at the State Championships please contact the Secretary – we have a jacket recovered and a green Go for 2 & 5 hat
Perth 2016 trust fund
Please read the important announcement from AMA President.
MAWA needs to start the process of identifying suitable projects for submission to the Trust Board. Any member who has an idea should discuss it face to face with a Committee Member, rather than submitting in writing. The Committee will help the member further develop any project that is suitable and meets Trust requirements.
New Thornlie course will be measured by Steve Weller, so will count for road ‘bests’
Race Directors – Herdsman now Claire Walkley, City Rail now Rod Hamilton, Racecourse still needs a Director
State Championships were very successful. The time for throwing events was greatly reduced by the extensive use of EDM’s. Agreed with AWA that one of the EDM’s purchased for World Champs will remain at ECAC for use by any of the clubs based there.
Our nine athletes who attended the very well organized indoor World Champs in South Korea performed exceptionally well setting many State Records and nine Australian Records
New track suit tops have arrived and are proving popular
The Nationals LOC held a second meeting. Priority activities are to complete venue bookings, send out a sponsorship proposal, select a venue for the dinner and produce a flyer for promoting the event in Darwin.
