Latest Committee News


At our committee meeting last night (27th February), two important decisions were made of interest to members.

timthumbFirstly, we co-opted Tony Porter as our Track & Field Team Manager responsible for the teams in the Midland Veterans Track & Field Team. Tony volunteered after my appeal for someone to come forward and more details will be available very soon.

Secondly, we unanimously agreed to go ahead and join the British Masters Athletic Federation online entry system. Once set up, members will be able to pay their subscriptions online and be able to update and amend their profile themselves. Eventually, probably gradually phased in, we will also be able to offer an online entry for our events. Integrating with the BMAF means that members will not be able to enter BMAF or International events without being a paid up member.

Maintaining this online database will drastically reduce the administration work involved with membership issues and will make handovers easier to succeeding officers.

Further details will be available soon.

    • Thanks Keith, I hope others will agree. I am at the moment working on ‘tweaking’ the new database. As with all new systems there will and are teething troubles but hopefully we will overcome. I’m not sure when we will go live but it won’t be too long.
