The Gold Coast Region have agreed to host both the QMA 3,000 m Run and Walk Championships and the QMA Track and Field Pentathlon Championships on the 12th of February 2017.
BUT THEY CAN"T DO IT ON THEIR OWN!
Particularly for the multi-events, our Gold Coast colleagues need as many officials and helpers as possible to ensure the smooth-running of each event.
DIG IN, HELP OUT, GET INVOLVED!
Please contact Alf Lakin if you are able to assist - don't worry if you are not familiar with the rules for some events, you will be given guidance.
The Gold Coast and Southern region thanks you!
Wonderful results from all Qld Masters Athletes in the recent AMA Half Marathon - and to top it off Lousie Abram amd Patrick Nispel set Queensland records in their age groups. 3 big cheers for our distance warriors!

1. QMA TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS
The date for the QMA Championships has been changed to the 1st and 2nd of April 2017.
This is one week earlier than originally scheduled and has been made necessary by the unavailability of the tracks on the weekend originally planned.
2. QMA DECATHLON AND HEPTATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS
These were to have been held with the QA events on 7th and 8th January 2017. As this is no longer possible, these events have been rescheduled to ANQ in June, the weekend after the Nationals in Darwin.
3. QMA 10,000 RUN CHAMPIONSHIP to be run with the QA event.
QA has rescheduled the 10,000 m Championship to Saturday 4th March (women 7.00 pm, Men 8.00 pm)
The QMA Management Team apologises for any inconvenience these changes may incur.
