Round 10 will be on the morning of Saturday 26th January (Australia Day). Thanks to all who completed the survey.
The Parkdale Gift is on Saturday 2nd February. Our U9 and older Athletes participate in handicapped 120 and 400m races, plus we will have a Shuttle Relay for U6-U8 Athletes. There won't be a round at Mentone as it is the same weekend as State Combined Event Championships, therefore all Athletes not going to the Combined Event Championships are encouraged to attend the Gift.
Athletes need to have attended at least 4 Rounds to qualify for Region Track and Field Championships. I have emailed those that have not yet qualified, but if you are unsure please contact email@example.com. Attending other Centre competitions is a valid way to increase Round attendance.
A massive thanks goes out to the Pearson, Molnar, Paton, Dunstan, Petha, Bertucci, Boardman, Doensen, Fragiacomo, Prevot, Pandian, Lewis, Dixon, Murugesan, Mulvihill, Burke, Peters, Tensen, Finch, Jansen-McMaster, Pillay, Spence, Spoljaric, Storer and Richardson families for sacrificing their time to run our Bunnings BBQ on Sunday 30th December. And of course to Martin Walker for organising the event. These families raised $1700 for our Centre - Thank You!!
Also, please keep an eye out for an email survey regarding the scheduling of Round 10 - currently scheduled as a Twilight meet on Friday 25th January, but we may need to move it to Saturday 26th as it is also our Combined Event Day. Your feedback will help us make our decision.
Congratulations to all of our Athletes who participated in the LAVic State Relay Championships at Lakeside last Saturday.
We came in a commendable 4th on the Medal Tally with 6 Gold, 6 Silver and 3 Bronze.
Congratulations to all who competed and a huge thanks to our committee, team managers and parent volunteers for making our participation possible.
We only have just over half the volunteers we need for our Bunnings Mentone Sausage Sizzle.
If you are around on Sunday 30th December, please spare a couple of hours to help raise money for our Centre.
To increase the incentive, a 2 hour session at the sausage sizzle will now count for 3 parent duty sessions at the track - possibly enough to earn your parent duty bond back in one go.
Please email Martin Walker on firstname.lastname@example.org or text on 0414700956 with your preferred timeslots. If you are flexible then let us know as this does help when filling the slots.
Sorry everyone, from the look of the radar we're not going to be able to run the Santa Sprints Christmas Party this afternoon.
Please have a safe and happy Christmas, we'll see you back at the track for a twilight on Friday 25th January.
Please contact our Sponsorship Manager Martin Walker if you are interested in sponsoring Mentone Little Athletics Centre.
