Bob Sammells Funeral
This will be held on Thursday 18th February, 4pm, at Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park, Whitfords Avenue.
Vale Bob Sammells
Robert (Bob) Edward Sammells, born 6 January 1937, died peacefully on 8th February.
Bob was an enthusiastic supporter and participant in many sports throughout his life, but none more than athletics. He joined the (then) WA Veterans Athletics Club in about 1977, and his membership saw him spend many years on the state committee, including holding positions of Treasurer and President. He was a life member, although he ceased participating in club activities in the last few years due to his advancing age and health issues.
MAWA Events this week
Please see the information below regarding our events in the coming week:
Monday training: Will go ahead but masks to be worn while not running

Thursday: Will go ahead with masks to be worn when not running. Canning have advised recreation venues are all open from 6th February and Government rules to be followed. No register required.
Sunday Woodbridge: Will go ahead. Post transition period so no restrictions. We have asked City of Swan if they want us to keep a register.
