Lyn Ventris wins IAAF Masters Athlete of the Year Award again!
For the second consecutive year, Lyn Ventris W55, our very own world champion walker, has won the female section of the IAAF Masters Athlete of the Year 2012. Lyn will receive her award at the IAAF Gala in Barcelona, Spain in November. We’ve been amazed over the past few months at the number of world records Lyn has broken. She is a true champion and we are so very proud of her. Congratulations Lyn.

The Club is updating its Register of members who have current First Aid/Nursing/Medical training who are available to offer assistance, if required, at Sunday runs and Tuesday and Thursday competition. The Register will be included in the Race Directors’ packs.

You can talk to Val at a Sunday run or on Thursdays for more information.
Wanted – Clothing Manager
MAWA is looking for a person to take over the job of Clothing Manager. After a number of years making us look good in our uniform, Pat Hopkins has decided it’s time to hand over to someone else. Many thanks go to Pat for her generous contribution in time and effort.
The Club relies on its volunteers for its smooth running, and the Clothing Manager is one of the more important jobs. If you’d like to do this job, you can contact Val Millard, Secretary, email email@example.com, phone 6468 7720 or talk to Pat or Val at a Sunday run for more information.
Changes to website
Some changes have been made to the webite to improve functionality and make it easier for us to post results and news items. A search function has been added, while buttons on the home page make it easier to write to the committee, and to access the MAWA facebook page. There is the addition of a feed from the AMA site, however the basic structure of the site is unchanged.
