WAAS will be unavailable for MAWA competition on Tuesday 15th January and Tuesday 12th March. Apologies for the late notice for next week, but the VenuesWest system that gives us early advice had not been updated for 2013.
The current club financial year ends March 31st, and this causes problems because the major income/expenditure during our state championships spans two different financial years. The committee intend to present a resolution to this year’s AGM that will change the club’s financial year to 1st July to 30th June.
The membership year of 1st April to March 31st will remain unchanged. In practical terms the only change that members would see would be that the AGM would go back to late July.
If any member has any comment or observation on this proposal, please contact Geoff Brayshaw on firstname.lastname@example.org

Bunbury Regional Athletic Club is holding 2 competitions in January and February and have invited MAWA members to join them.
