Parents Survey 2017

To parents of registered athletes of Macquarie Hunter Athletics Club.

At a recent committee meeting a suggestion put forward was that we conduct a survey to find out what parents consider we might do to improve our club.

To that end I am posting this survey which will be posted on our Facebook site and Website.

If parents could CLICK HERE for SURVEY to download and complete and hand in at our Friday night carnival it would be appreciated.

Lake Macquarie Zone Championships

The Championships will be held once again at the Hunter Sports Centre Glendale. We have a large number of new registrations in MacHunter this year and for that reason I am posting a link to the program for Saturday and Sunday Lake Macquarie Zone Championships on December 16 and 17. Nominations close November 20.

Under 7 up to under 12 athletes may compete in 4 events over the two days…. Under 13 up to under 17 athletes may compete in 6 events over the two days. The club will cover the cost of all registrations however a refundable levi of $50 per family will apply. This levi is redeemable once roster commitments have been completed at all Championship carnivals. If an athlete qualifies for Regional Championships there is a cost of $10 per athlete which is taken from the Levi. The program will be a timed program once again and will operate under the same conditions as 2016.

As per the announcement relating to the Championships on Friday 3rd November night carnival, Nomination Forms will be available at that time. The club would like as many athletes as possible to compete at this Championship event.

Anyone with questions do not hesitate to ask for assistance.

Lake Macquarie Zone Championships

NOTICE TO ALL PARENTS – Lake Macquarie Zone Championships

We have many talented athletes registered with the club who we see every Friday night at our carnivals. The Zone Championships can be the beginning of a fantastic journey which could take an athlete to the State Championships. But the LM Zone Championships is for all athletes. The talented and maybe those aspiring to be better athletes.

Our committee would encourage all parents to register their children for the upcoming Zone Championships. Zone nominations are now open. Nomination forms were available at the carnival last night. Nomination Forms and payment of $50 need to be handed in no later than Friday November 17.

If you believe the club is holding funds from 2016 the club treasurer will be available to discus this with you at the ground from 6:00pm on that date. Also will accept cash payments on that date. Alternatively you can direct deposit the $50 into the MacHunter Account no later than November 17 as below: BSB-650300 Account-986932604 Account Name-Macquarie Hunter Athletics Please quote your child’s surname and initial. A reminder with regard to payments of the $50 deposit. This deposit is redeemable at the completion of the final Championship event.ie State Championships. If your child competes at the Regional Championships a $10 entry fee per athlete will be deducted from the $50.

If anyone has any questions regarding payments or deposits you can send an email to treasurer@machunter.com.au Entry forms will again be available next Friday night and hopefully we can post a form on our website and Facebook sites for parents to download.

Newsletter 1 – 2017-2018 LANSW Season
Monday, 14 August 2017
New Uniform

We are excited to introduce the new look Macquarie Hunter athletics uniform.  After being disappointed with the quality and fit of our old uniforms, a new provider was sourced. The committee, after much discussion, thought it would be an ideal time to modernise our uniform, while still trying to retain the traditional Macquarie Hunter colours (Maroon, white, black and teal).  The pictures below give an idea of the uniform (they look great in print) with the maroon fading into black and the traditional teal and white incorporated into the stripes.

We have a 12 month transition phase with LANSW, however if you are considering competing in zone, regional and state,  they have requested as many athletes as possible to wear the new uniform.

The old style uniforms are still good to use on a Friday night club night, therefore we are selling off our stock at 50%.

We are no longer going to retain stock at the center.  We have two days where committee members will be at the club for you to come down and try on the new uniform and pre-order before the season start and buy up training uniforms at a bargain price.

Sunday 27th August from 10am-12pm. This is for uniform fitting and ordering only.

Uniforms will also be available to try on and order on our registration afternoon Sunday 10th September from 12.00-3.00pm.

We will then place a bulk order for all uniforms ordered.  Payment to Macquarie Hunter will be required (details will be provided at time of ordering) by 17th September 2017. Individual uniforms will not be available for collection, until payment has been received.

After this day uniforms will be able to be ordered on line with http://www.sportsmagic.com.au/.  There will be a postage cost when ordered individually (the club will pay the postage on uniforms included in the bulk order).
