Bunbury Competitions – 19th January and 16th February
Bunbury Regional Athletic Club is holding 2 competitions in January and February and have invited MAWA members to join them. This is a great way for extra competition before the State T&F Championships and to support the Bunbury athletic community, who always come up to Perth in large numbers for the State Championships.
19th JANUARY – WEIGHT (THROWS) PENTATHLON
16TH FEBRUARY – COUNTRY v CITY CHALLENGE
Provisional program: 60m, 100m, 400m, 1500m R/W, medley relay, shot, discus
(last year, City just pipped Country by a couple of points in the last event)
Both events held at BRAC, Hay Park, Bunbury, starting at 3.00pm, followed by light eats.
Contact Val Millard (email@example.com) or on Tues or Thurs for more info and to advise if you plan to attend, for program/catering purposes.

MAWA State Championships 2013
Entry for the 2013 State Championships is now open – refer to the State Championship section of the main sidebar on the home page. Please read the information sheet before completing your entry form. You can enter online or by downloading and posting the paper form to Barbara Blurton. You are encouraged to enter on line as it eliminates human error as well as reducing admin costs.
You will note that 4 out of the 5 days of the championships will be at WAAS. We know that this is the preferred venue for most club members, but our costs there are substantially higher than at ECAC. It has therefore been necessary to increase the entry fees to ensure that the club can break even for the event.
All entrants to the MAWA 2013 State Championships will receive a free Perth 2016 T-shirt.
Sandra Stockman is now our Uniform Manager
Sandra Stockman has taken over the role of Uniform Manager. She has supplies of Club singlets, tracksuits, teeshirts and other items, which are on display at Sunday runs and at WAAS on Tuesdays. Please see Sandra on Sundays or Tuesdays for your uniform requirements, or contact her by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 9375 5294.
