This newspost is to remind members of the arrangements we have with Athletics WA on registration and insurance. All MAWA members are registered with AWA which means you do not have to pay a registration fee to compete in AWA events. That registration gives our members the full benefits of the Athletics Australia insurance policy at all MAWA sanctioned events. This covers both public liability and personal accident. The attached gives full details of the coverage, and we suggest that all members read it:
The Seniors Recreation Council of WA 2018 “Have a Go Day” will be on Wednesday 14 November 9am to 3pm at Burswood

The event will be in the area where we usually hold our runs – that car park will be closed but the other car parks in Burswood will be available and there will also be shuttle buses from the train station.
It is a free event with theme “Age is no Barrier” with activities and information for over 50’s – see flyer below:
