Member number 4 Bob Hayres passed away on 11th December. Below is a tribute from David Carr.

On December 5th, Bob and his family hosted a wake for eighty
guests. He was able to chat with everyone and modestly accept the eulogies.
Bob joined MAWA in May 1974 and within a year was President,
with tasks like uniforms, formal relations with Marathon Club
Athletics WA, and planning and conducting the Australian
Championships.
His football and cricket days were long over. He weighed
over 100 kilos and dined out. As state manager of Parker Pens,
he travelled the state. Running changed his life. He ran with
our club, Marathon Club and Athletics WA. Road and track.
Although he had not worn his number 4 for some years members
will remember him as race director at Floreat beach, regular
with Saturday group in King’s Park and Tuesdays under the
trees of Perry Lakes, raking the pit at state championships,
or just giving us encouragement at Gwelup Lake.
