CANCELLED - Senior Inter Club Track & Field Meeting - 24th November 2018

Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub

Event date: 24/11/2018 11:45 AM Export event

Programme Due the state of the in-field and expectation of showers all afternoon, the interclub this afternoon has been cancelled.

However, the track in OPEN until 5:00 p.m. free of charge.  This includes the use of the pole line, should coaches / athletes like to organise & conduct time trials in preparation for next weekend.

While this is an all weather venue, we also have to be mindful of the welfare of our officials.

HIGH WIND ISSUE & Incomplete installation:  In early November we experienced strong winds which resulted in the hammer event being called off for health & safety reasons.  When endeavouring to lower the hammer cage nets, the net became caught on two hinges, 9.5m & 5m above ground.  The net weighs 400kg, yet the wind caused the net to wrap around the hinges, preventing it from being lowered.  Fortunately we were able to release the net, but it involved unsafe practices by several officials, which is not acceptable.

We are also waiting for ground sockets to be manufactured and fitted.  These secure the gates of the hammer cages, as is required for H & S compliance. 

For these two reasons, until both tasks are completed ... no hammer events will be held as it is a health & safety issue.

More information will be available closer to the event.
