Masters Annual Reports - Mid America Region, 2005

 

MID AMERICA

 

Activities for the Region incl. Indoor Champs at the United

States Air Force Academy on Feb. 25,  report was in the NMN for April.

About 150 competitors, incl. High School (they compete as open athletes)

 

There were meets in Minnesota, Iowa (Senior Games)  We have no reports, we

don't know if the Senior Games are sanctioned, most of them are NOT.

 

The Mid America Outdoor Champs. were held in Edwardsville, Ill in

conjunction with the Ozark Champs.l on June 11/12.  The problem still

exists, we have never been able to get a report from the meetdirector - and

i have given up!  They are nice people, but the communication is ZERO.

Partial results were printed in the NMN in August.

 

The Rocky Mtn. Masters Games were held Sept. 3/4 in Fort Collins,

meetdirector Jim Weed ( a Pro ias a meetdirector) held the very popular

meet. Unfortunately several athletes that regularly attend that meet were

still in Spain at the World Games.

Next years Rocky Mtn. Master Games are already being organized, date: Labor

Day weekend.

 

We are actually considering to combine the meet with the MId America

Regional Masters Champs.

Planning meetings are scheduled.

 

Other than the Colorado Association, no other association has a designated

Masters chairperson. At least, we have not heard from anyone.

 

While facilities are available, no other association seems to be willing to

put on an indoor or outdoor regional Championship.

 

Jerry and I will agree to host the Indoor and Outdoor Championships for

2006. We already reserved the Air Force Academy for Feb. 26, 2006  as the

Mid America Indoor Regional Championship.

As I mentioned, we are planning the Outdoor meet as well.

 

Unless some other Association comes forward very soon, our plans are as

stated.
