This is for the reader who is a member of the anachronistically named Australian Capital Territory Veterans Athletic Club - yes, we in Canberra are a bit slow where when it comes to keeping up with the times, but we are after all a very conservative town in a very conservative country, a long way from the civilized world - and also for the reader who is 30 years old or more and lives within range of the ACT and should be a member, as we are a fantastic club, probably the best Masters athletics club in the world when you consider the events and services we provide. The ACTVAC website has a "NEWS" page which I update regularly. When I say "regularly", I mean at least once a week, often more.

  1. I guess that means ACTVAC can officially call itself a 'master' now that its 30.

  2. I thought ACTVAC was some fancy sort of Hoover.

    I'm even further from the civilised world down here. I might as well be living in far north Queensland.

  3. I guess Janene that your comment is yet another witty insight of yours that I will be stealing, I mean, reproducing, soon.
