Massey Athletics Track and Field Prize-giving for 2019 - 2020
At this stage we are still planning to run our prize-giving this Saturday (refer to the poster to the left for details and times).
We are keeping track of the Ministry of Health guidelines in regards to group gatherings and so the status of the event could change and we will advise you asap.
In the wake of the Covid-19 situation we do need to apply recommendations based on Ministry of Health guidance for running a gathering of under 500 people. This includes;
And while it may be stating the obvious… anyone who is feeling unwell or who has returned to New Zealand in the past 14 days should NOT attend the prize-giving, as per the Ministry of Health guidelines.
Please also see below for the list of recipients for the awards. This has been updated from the Facebook post to now include those children who will be getting a Participation Certificate (only for ages under 10 who have attended 5 or more Club Nights).
See you all there on Saturday.
See list on the left...
i all, just want to update you regarding the Prize-giving tomorrow.
We are going ahead with prize-giving as planned. Our event is (and always has been) planned to be run outside. The current restrictions on gathering pertain to indoor gatherings (unless over 500 people for an outside gathering). We will not get anywhere near 500 people :)
The only reason we will cancel is if it rains to the degree where we would have to go indoors. As previously mentioned, our club rooms are simply not big enough to hold the numbers we have while also adhering to the 'physical distancing' recommendations set out by the Ministry of Health. So if the weather does not play the game, tomorrow would be cancelled and we will advise you of how we will move forward with the prize-giving, i.e postponement, online event, such as a Facebook watch party, or some other approach.
My main drive to get this to work is for the children and to share their success with the rest of the club, so we will be trying our best to make this happen, but obviously everyone's health and well being needs to come first.
Please refer to Facebook and/or previous messages for the start times and related details.

Massey Athletics Club Open Day 2020
The 2020 Massey Open Day is on Saturday, January 25th, 2020 starting at 10:00 am. We run a full programme for our Open Day with events for athletes aged 4 - 14 years of age.
The full programme is now available. Please note that as an environmentally conscious organisation, we no longer print large numbers of the programme for distribution on the day, as it is available to view and download here.
Parking at Massey Athletics Club
Our club has it's own carpark, but it fills up fairly quick. There is also parking next door at the Massey Rugby club that you can use and there is street parking on Granville Drive... BUT, please be respectful to our neighbours and do not park across driveways. Also, Granville Drive is on a bus route. If you value your cars paint job and wing mirrors, then we advise you to park only on the athletics club side of Granville Drive to avoid parking on both sides of the road, thus making access for buses very difficult. Ultimately it's up to you, but you have been warned. :)
2019 - 2020 Track and Field Season
Summer Track and Field season for 2019 - 2020 is about to kick off on Monday 28th October. Even though this is Labour Monday, it's our regular first club night of the new season.
This season we will be back on our usual field and it is now fully upgraded to a sand based field with flood lights and it's brilliant!
We are also about to reveal our new club uniform, stay posted on our Facebook page for more details on this.
So get your registrations in, start your training and cross your fingers that the rain stays away and we will see you on October 28, 2019.
