As you may have heard, the Welsh Masters Athletics Championships will this year be held in conjunction with Midland Masters
The venue will be Nuneaton in Warwickshire, which is not very convenient for most of our members, whilst for others (eg from North Wales) it is easier and quicker to reach than Cardiff or Brecon
The main thing of course is that at least there will be a Welsh Masters Championships this year!
At one point it looked as though our committee would have to cancel the Championships - not due to a shortage of athletes or the lack of a venue, but to a shortage of helpers and officials.
Whilst some people are very willing to assist, sadly, such willing volunteers are becoming a rarity - most of us assume that "someone else will do it" and ignore requests for help.
Anyway, the committee have rescued the situation for 2018 by combining our Championships with those of Midland Masters, hence a trip to Nuneaton
This should ensure a decent level of competition and, most of all, it provides an opportunity for us to hold our Championships
The details are as follows.
Bookings must be made via the BMAF website.
03 Jun 2018
WMAA and MMAC Track & Field Championships
Pingles Leisure Centre, Avenue Road, Nuneaton CV11 4LX
First Field Event 10:00 am. First Track Event 11:00 am
Please note that entries must be made in advance, the closing date is 26 May, 2018
Best to do it sooner, rather than later, to avoid disappointment and any last minute glitches.
This is a combined Championships, so entries will not be accepted on the day, whatever the excuse
Hopefully we can put on a good showing at Nuneaton, whilst enjoying a great day of Masters athletics with our Midland Masters friends/rivals.
MMAC will award medals to their athletes, whilst at WMAA we will award our own medals to Welsh Masters athletes, provided thay achieve the medal standard
