Herewith the Chairman’s report presented at the KZN Masters Athletics AGM on 16 January 2020.
Good morning to everyone who took the time out to join us for our 2021 Annual General Meeting for KZN Masters Athletics.
2020, a year to remember, be it for most of all the wrong reason. All of us, be it for work, retirement, holidays, family life, visiting family overseas (some of us did for 3 months) or our sport, planned like we do every year what we want to achieve, reach or targeting our goals. Our athletics season started of like any other year, much anticipated league meetings, then national champs etc etc.
Then the dreaded date, 27 March 2020, who would have thought that anything like this, which we normally see in movies could happen where you and I live? This brought not only our chosen sport to a halt but the entire world sport scene to a standstill, could you ever imagine an Olympic games to postponed by a year!! I could never have thought that in my wildest dreams.
At least for some of us that could get out and could stay active, there was a host of virtual events almost weekly, at times it felt like daily. With these virtual events, I can now also brag that I have done the Comrades, be it just the 5km race.
As your KZN Committee we had to get highly creative in having our meetings, also with no athletics happening from March we adapted quite well, eventually in having our meetings in the new normal way, ONLINE. Sharon had to wake up for one such a meeting at 3 in the morning, as she was stuck in New Zealand, but luckily, she had company, the house cat.
With a year like the one we had in 2020, I firstly must give our committee a huge hand for stucking to the job at hand and stay focused and positive to our beloved sport, also a special thanks to Shona, who by herself, created our new KZN Masters Athletics Website. We as KZN Masters are now in full control of our own website and information on it. Should you like to see more info or have comments please let us know and we will gladly see if we can post or improve on our website. Website address is www.kznma.co.za
As the chairman for 2020, I would like to thank the members for their trust put in me for 2020, little did I know what challenging year this would be, and then to my committee, a HUGE thank you for each and everyone of you for your support, input, and time. It did not go unnoticed and you guys is what the sport need, especially in times like these.
I wish every athlete the best for 2021, I wish you and your family a healthy, safe year and may we meet soon at our favourite place, Kings Park.
Thanks, and Regards.
