VETRUNNEREmail: vetrunner@actvac.com ISSN 1449-8006 Vol. 31 Issue 10 — May 2010Patron: Jack Pennington OAMBy Bryan Thomas2010 FRISTAD AWARD WINNERS(For track and field excellence)Criteria taken into consideration when identifying winnersof this award are that the member:• be a regular participant in our weekly track andfield program,• demonstrates good sportsmanship; and• has high individual performances achieved in anyofficial masters athletics competition in the 12months since the previous season’s award comparedwith results achieved at the most recent WorldMasters Athletics Championships.CERTIFICATES OF EXCELLENCEPresented to persons who have performed exceptionallythroughout the season and have just missed out on the topthree Fristad Awards. These include:Sue Bourke (W50), Cory Collins (W70), Jayne Hardy(W45), Ann Jugovic (W45) Mary Wahren (W75), BobChapman (M75), Ray Green (M65), Brad Osborn(M35) and Robin Whyte (M65)THIRD PLACED FRISTAD AWARDSUE ARCHER (W60)Sue has enjoyed an excellent year, in cross-country, onthe road and of course, as far as this award is concerned,also on the track. She was outstanding at the WorldMasters Games winning four gold medals in a tough agegroup,including a win in the 5000m in a time that wouldhave earned the bronze medal in the World MastersAthletics Championships in Lahti, Finland.At home she also produced several world-classperformances; setting ACT Records for W60 1500m, 3000m,5000m, 10000m and the one hour run. Her 10000m was abetter time than the gold medallist ran at the WorldChampionships.LEO KENNEDY (M50)Leo is one of our best ever sprinters, frequently beatingmuch younger runners. He has not been beaten in theshorter sprints by an Australian in his age-group over thelast two seasons. He convincingly won all three sprints atlast year’s Nationals in Adelaide and topped off anexcellent carnival by anchoring our winning 4x100m relayteam. Leo also enjoyed success at the World MastersGames where he was the first Australian in the 100m andsecond in the 200m.Comparing his best races this season in Canberra to thetimes run in Lahti, his best 100m would have won thesilver medal and his best 200m would place fifth. Leo wasrunner-up in this season’s Gift, adding to his first, threeother seconds and a third in the annual sprint handicap.Leo won the Fristad Award in 2008 and this is thesecond occasion he has been third, the other being in 2005.RUNNERS-UP FRISTAD AWARDJANICE BANENS (W65)Janice was one of the outstanding throwers at the 2009Nationals and at the World Masters Games and even morerecently at the World Masters Indoor AthleticsChampionships in Kamloops, Canada. She has regularlyproduced national and world class performances in her twofavourite disciplines; the hammer and heavy weight throw.She won silver and bronze in these two throws at the WorldMasters Games. In Kamloops she won gold in the hammer,heavy weight throw and shot put as well as silver for thejavelin and bronze in the discus. Her best hammer andweight throws during our Thursday night meets wouldhave won the events in Lahti.This is the fifth consecutive year that Janice has beenidentified as being one of our most talented women athletesas she was the winner for the first three of those seasonsand now is the runner-up for consecutive years.BRUCE GRAHAM (M45)Bruce is an aggressive front runner who has beenunbeaten throughout the season over all distances from800m to 10000m. He was runner-up in the annual Higginshandicap, one place better than the previous year. Allperformances rate in the 85 – 89% range of WMA agegraded percentages. His local 10000m time would haveplaced him third and his 5000m fifth at Lahti in a highlycompetitive age group.Bruce was the most outstanding distance runner at lastyear’s Nationals, easily winning all the distance events andbeing the fastest of all age-groups.He is the best middle to long distance runner we havehad for many years and it has been exciting watching himweek after week trying to break the records of formernational champions Frank Green and Garry Hand thathave stood since the mid 1980s. Like Janice Bruce isrunner-up for the second year in a row.2009-10 FRISTAD AWARD WINNERSMARGARET TAYLOR (W60)Margaret has had an outstanding season; week afterweek producing excellent performancesin jumps, sprints and hurdles.She was one of the stand-outathletes at both the 2009 Nationals andat the World Championships in Lahti,Finland. At the Nationals Margaretwon the 60m, 100m, 200m, 80m hurdlesand set Championship Records in allthree jumps. She wound up the carnivalby setting a new Australian Record inthe pentathlon.Continued on Page 4VALEMILTONVALENTINE14 March 2010An obituary forMilton is onPage 32

Page 4 — Nay 2010 VetrunnerContinued from Page 1Competing in her first overseas World ChampionshipsMargaret won gold medals in the triple jump and highjump and silver in the long jump. Her high jump equalledher own Australian Record. Margaret finished a closerunner-up in this season’s Gift. This was the first time inher nine starts in the annual sprint handicap she had notbeen first across the line.Over the years Margaret has been recognised as beingone of the club’s most talented athletes by winning theFristad Award an amazing six times (the first being in1993), she has been runner-up on another five occasionsand third three times. This is the most outstanding recordin the 28 year history of the Fristad Awards.Last November Margaret was one of three finalists forthe 2009 ACT Masters Sportsperson of the Year.Since debuting on the track in 1990 Jim White hasamassed an incredible string of performances; so much sothat several seasons ago he was dubbed the ‘racingmachine’. Over the last two decades Jim has rarely misseda track and field meet, and has always been one of theearliest to arrive and last to leave.His 2001 New Year’s resolution was to participate in atleast 150 fun runs, cross-country or road races within theyear, (that is an average of three races per week, notcounting the many he ran on the track). He made it easily!By December 2008 Jim had participated in more than athousand track events at our Thursday evening meets.Amongst this impressive tally is that he has participatedin all 19 Higgins Memorial 800m Handicaps, is currentlythe most prolific competitor in the Adler Series, secondmost in the annual Gift Sprint Handicap and for severalseasons has run in almost every Daniels Series Handicapevent. He even ran this season’s Gift as his latest alter-ego,the buxom Pamela Anderson!Although the Johnson Trophy recognises a person’sparticipation and commitment in our track and fieldprogram, Jim has a long and impressive involvement inmany other club activities. Twelve years ago he washonoured by being the recipient of another of ourprestigious club-person awards, the 1998 EncouragementAward for his participation and service to our monthlyrunning handicap program. He earned his ‘150 handicapruns’ T-shirt in September 2005 and for several years wasrace director of the Lake Tuggeranong and Pine Islandhandicap courses.Jim also organised our annual cross-countrychampionships from 1996 to 1998 as well as beingcoordinator of the club’s road and cross-country relayteams for many years. In 1996 he assembled teams for thesprint marathon relay and three years later became theevent organiser. His enthusiasm and promotion of the 1999marathon relay attracted a record 11 teams and he hascontinued to organize the event every year since. Jim iscurrently equal top of the competitors tally with 19 andhas enjoyed being part of a winning team on four occasions.In 2003, and again the following year, Jim got togethera team of 21 members of all ages and abilities toparticipate in the Cancer Council ‘Run for Life Relay’, afund raising 24hour community relay carnival at the AISJOHN LAMB (M55/60)John has enjoyed a remarkable twelve months ofathletics competition. He won gold in the M55 800m andsilver in the 400m at the Nationals in Adelaide. At theWorld Masters Games he had moved up to the M60 agegroupand was first Australian in both 400 and 800m, aswell as being a member of the winning 4x400m relay team.Had he raced at the World Championships in Finland hisbest local 400m and 800m times would have won silvermedals.John won this season’s Higgins, his second win in theannual event having previously won in 2007. John was alsothird in the Gift after finishing runner-up the seasonbefore. Obviously John enjoys handicap racing for he wasalso second in the 600m and third in the 300m at therecent Queanbeyan Gift carnival.TWO ENTHUSIASTS HONOURED AGAIN FOR THEIRCONTRIBUTIONS *** AFTER TWO DECADES ‘RACINGMACHINE’ ADDS TO HIS TALLIEStrack. Jim was thrilled that his team managed to completemore laps than any other, running 767 laps for a totaldistance of 306km. But perhaps his most satisfying dutywas being asked to organise a group of runners toaccompany Pat Farmer for the first and final fewkilometres of his memorable “Round Australia Run”between May and December 1999.Apart from his participation at the track Jim has alsorun many half marathons, including 20 ACT Veterans’Half Marathons, as well as several marathons. In March2008 he completed his first ultra when he finished theinfamous Six Foot Track in just over five and a half hours.Last August Jim took up a new challenge by participatingin the Sydney Centre Point Tower stair race. He also hasthe amazing record of having run every Canberra TimesFun Run since its beginning.Jim only participates in the AMA Championships orMasters Games when they are held in Canberra althoughhe did enjoy his first taste of international competition atthe World Veterans’ Championships in Brisbane 2001where he ran cross-country and 5000m. Not only did hecompete in several running events during the 2003Australian Masters Games, but he also took theopportunity to relive his youthful sporting passion andsuccessfully participated in dirt track motor cycle racing.Jim (and wife Maria) are typical of the ideal clubmember; being involved in a wide range of club activitiesas participants, organisers and helpers.Jim is a worthy recipient of the 28 th JohnsonClub-Person Trophy.QUIET DETERMINATION AND ENTHUSIASMREWARDEDDuncan Macnicol, this year’s recipient of theprestigious National Heart Foundation Trophy has been anenthusiastic and regular participant at our track and fieldmeets for the past four years. His enthusiasm has beenresulted in rapid improvement in all his athletic pursuits.Throughout the current season Duncan has been aregular participant in all throwing events and somesprints. He particularly enjoys competing in the DanielsSeries of sprint handicaps. In fact he is a two times winnerContinued on Page 6

Page 6 — May 2010 VetrunnerContinued from Page4of the Series, having won in 2007-08 and tied for first(with Jim White) in the just completed season.Duncan is also a regular participant in our unique andpopular monthly throwing handicap program as well as themonthly throws pentathlon. He has enjoyed considerablesuccess in the 27 monthly throwing handicaps in which hehas participated; winning the trophy four times, beingrunner-up on three occasions and the bronze medalist once.Throughout most of 2008 Duncan was usually one of theearliest to arrive at the Masson Street Throwing Field,having come directly from dragon boat racing. At the end ofthe year he was the recipient the Clohessy Trophy as thethrowing handicap club-person of the year as well as beingrunner-up in the Connell Series point score.It is difficult to imagine a scarier life-threatening illnessthan Duncan experienced just 18 months ago. For a while,he was forced to drastically cut back on the amount andintensity of his participation in all forms of physicalactivity. Following successful surgery for a brain tumour,Duncan commenced a long and gentle period ofrecuperation, always aiming towards a gradual return totrack and field and throwing handicap competition.Having regained his enthusiasm and much of hisstrength Duncan was encouraged to play a more significantReport by Geoff BarkerMarch was a busy month for Vets with severalcompeting in the 6 Foot Track Ultra Marathon, the WestonCreek Half Marathon, and one (with others volunteering),in the Mt Kosciuszko Mountain Run. Some competedoverseas at the World Indoor Championships in BritishColumbia, Canada; while others were participating in theCanberra Two Day Walk the same weekend as thehandicap at Stromlo when 184 Vets competed on abeautiful warm sunny day.It was the first day too, for the club’s new child mindingtent, so it is now not necessary to borrow one. All reportssay it was very well received by workers and children alike,- easy to put up and take down, and is without guy ropes, soeveryone is very pleased.THOMAS SERIESFirst over the line was Rod Lynch, who is normally aback marker chasing other runners, but because he had notbeen feeling well decided to go off group one and walk theevent. He did not expect to stay in first position all the way,and in fact felt a bit lonely being out in front all by himself,almost wishing a few runners would pass him. He liked thecourse but found he had to watch his footing a bitparticularly on the way back. He did however manage tokeep an eye out for his wife Amanda competing in theWaddell. He was also able to see their children, Brett andMelanie, now too old for the child minding tent, runningaround the course also.Seen coming second over the line after flying around thecourse was Superwoman, having her first handicap runsince October 2007.A surprised Rae Palmer won the gold medal for beingthird over the line. A member since 2000 this is Rae’s firstmedal in the handicaps, but admits she was pleased withher run and had hoped to do well, although she found therole in club management, and at the last AGM was electedto committee.The annual National Heart Foundation Trophy isawarded to a member “whose health has obviouslybenefited from their regular participation in our Track andField program. It may also recognise an outstandingexample of a regular participant living an active andhealthy life style thus being an excellent role model for allveteran athletes.” Duncan’s performances throughout thesummer meet all the above criteria making him a worthyrecipient of this prestigious award.Congratulations Duncan on being the 28 threcipient of the Heart Foundation Trophy.Note: The task of identifying recipients and preparingcitations for these two awards was performed by theAwards Sub-Committee (Bryan Thomas (chair), CoryCollins, Mick Horan, Maureen Rossiter and MargaretTaylor).Our other tasks are to determine recipients of LifeMembership, the Encouragement Award (monthly runninghandicaps) and the Clohessy Trophy (monthly throwinghandicaps). We appreciate suggestions from members ofpersons they believe worthy of consideration for theseprestigious “club-person” awards).A grassy track for a Stromlo Forest Handicap28 March 2010grass a ‘bit heavy’ and preferred going through the bushsection. A retired hairdresser, Rae didn’t really runseriously until she joined Vets because before that she wasjust having fun and had no time for training, however shedid compete in the Women and Girls Jogalong and some CTfun runs. Now she trains fairly religiously with the FITprograms which consists of early morning bike rides andsome runs, but points out the most important part of thesetraining routines is the very nice breakfast at the end. Thebreakfasts are very motivating, and along with the Tuesdaymorning group contributed to her very proud 2009 TripleTri win in the W60 team with Brenda Day and SueArcher. Rae is currently learning French, as in May she,and her bike, are going to France to stay with her daughterCarla, and while there she hopes to participate in the bike“Du Tour Malet” which covers part of the Tour de Franceroute. Rae loves the Vets saying it really “stretches” herand she loves the social aspect as they are all a ‘wonderful,great bunch of people’.Fourth over the line to claim the silver medal wasPeter Bourgaize, his second medal in the handicaps sincehis first run in 1990. This was Peter’s first run at Stromloand he was very impressed with the facility. Before joiningVets, Peter was an elite runner with a win in the 1986Adelaide Marathon (2:25) and a third in the 1985 GoldCoast Marathon (2:23) to his credit. He has just returned tothe Vets after a break of 14 years and has been traininghard so he felt he is getting his fitness back and waspleased with his effort, although he is not looking forwardto how the handicapper will treat him. A former Air Forceofficer, now working part time for Australia Post, Peterdoes “about 35km a week training but wishes he had themotivation to do more. Maybe his new handicap will givehim the motivation! He says the Vets is ‘a great club’ andwishes he had made a ‘comeback’ to running sooner. His


goal is to win the Australian Half MarathonChampionships as an M60 in 2012.Ian McDonald took the bronze medal for being fifthover the line. He says he was ‘lucky to snag it’ and thinks areally good night at the track on the previous Thursdaynight probably helped. He says that Stromlo is a ‘goodtesting’ course but will be better when the grass is fullygrown.Ian is a relative newcomer to serious running,having joined in 2008 as a result of the influence ofRichard Faulks and Peter Cullen with whom he wasdoing long runs on a Saturday morning. He completed hisfirst marathon in 2009 – the Canberra – but is not goingagain this year. Through the week he works for the Dept ofDefence but gets a run in most days with a longer one atweekends. Ian says the Vets is a very well run, wellorganised club with good people, a good atmosphere andgreat camaraderie. And he is continually amazed at howquick some of the ‘older’ members run and hopes he is halfas good as them when he is their age.One of Vets legends, Cathy Newman, came home inthe middle of the pack. This was Cathy’s third handicapsince having a hip arthroscopy late last year, and her aimwas to run under 40 minutes, and she did 39:30, - excellent!Cathy did not favour the grass and actually ‘went over onan ankle’ a couple of times and was glad to get onto thegravel but says it was still ‘hard work’ because she couldn’tfeel ‘any breeze’. On the way back she thought she wasgoing backwards when Steve Appleby ‘shot past’, but wasable to get past Ewen Thompson doing a ‘post 6 foottrack’ shuffle and managed to overtake Ruth Baussmannin the final straight, finally seeing the finish line “notbefore time”. Cathy hopes to continue on her steadycomeback and plans several runs on the agenda for 2010,including the Vets half marathon, although no marathons.Her other goals are continued gym work, swimming,cycling, reading, and coffee and chocolate with friends.Cathy has one Ironman, 10 marathons, and two 6 FootTrack ultras to her credit.Having her first ever run with the Vets, BelindaBounty came home in 62 nd position, although she wasdisappointed she didn’t catch her mum Jenny Gilchristwho finished 40 th . If Belinda is able to drag herself awayfrom her water skiing and do some training she willprobably catch her mum, that is if her dad Rod Gilchrist,gives her a present of membership to Vets.It was fitting for Wilf Deck to win the Lanterne Rouge,although he says he ‘tried not to’. Regular readers ofVetrunner will be aware of Wilf’s argument with a truck inTaiwan in 2006, after which, both he and the truck had toundergo extensive remodeling, and in Wilf’s case, thisrequired two artificial hips, a steel plate on his pelvis, andscrews to hold his bones together in his left knee and rightshoulder. He had all these when he won the gold medal lastyear, when he was claiming to be a ‘beginning’ runneragain, so he says the only excuse for the Stromlo result isthat he just found the course ‘harder than expected’ andhad actually “peaked” for the Phuket Triathlon inDecember 2009.FRYLINK SERIESTony Harrison, one of the most important members inthe club, made it a double with first over the line and goldmedal. A former rugby league player this is Tony’s secondmedal, and was ‘ecstatic’ to win. He did find the surface ofthe course a bit rough and this may have been evidenced bythe fact that he actually finished with blisters on both feet,May 2010 Vetrunner — Page 7also maybe because he pushed himself, (but they were‘worth it!’). Another factor could have been that, because ofthe facilities on-site at Stromlo, Tony did not have to lookforward to his monthly duty by taking away the full‘dunny’ (port-a-loo). Tony’s training is primarily running ona treadmill, but on a Sunday he does do a hard bike ridewith Ken Gordon and a few others, which he says reallytests him out. He says that the Vets is a great club and isonly too happy to do his bit, but if he is really appreciatedfor empting the “dunny” he says the handicapping shouldbe on a “weight for age” basis. Regardless his aim is to runhis second Canberra Times Fun Run this year. That’s if hecan find time away from his kitchen manufacturingbusiness – Tony Harrison’s Kitchens – located inBungendore.Setting a new course record of 0:17: 11 in the M50 GaryBowen came second over the line to win his first eversilver medal, and is now looking for a gold medal. Garysays a major contribution to his good fitness level is theinterval training he has been doing at the AIS. He is also aregular with Geoff Moore’s group. A public servant inDefence, he is a former navy man from both British andAustralian navies and his aim for 2010 is to try for a PB atevery handicap. He enjoys watching his family participatein their various sporting activities, but the highlight ofeach week is breakfast with Patricia on the weekend.Geoff Moore, not going so hard because of flu, wasthird over the line to win the bronze medal. Even though itis one of Geoff’s favourite courses he thought the surfacewas a bit rough and uneven in parts. Apart from playingtennis when he was growing up and learning to swim atthe age of 40, Geoff has mainly been a runner, joining theVets in 1984, where he is well known as the coordinator oftraining groups, and sponsor of the Moore Award for the3000m during the track season. He is also chair of theMember Services Sub-committee and a life member. Aretired IT specialist Geoff has his own blog and also boaststo having his own private “super coach”, although he wasnot prepared to name him.Kylie Gibson was having her first handicap andfinished one place front of Faye Todd, both in the middleof the pack. Kylie did a thing common for first runners –she disappeared! Faye has been a member since 2008 andalready has a gold and silver medal, but says she found theStromlo course a ‘bit hard’ as she didn’t think she ran verywell on the day and is not really used to running on grassyuneven surfaces. A qualified athletic coach anddevelopment officer for Little Athletics she is used to beingaround runners. However she has not been able to achieveone running goal, and that to get her husband StuartTodd to run many handicaps. He has done two!Roger Pilkington was very embarrassed – not forwinning the wooden spoon – but for the reason he won it.He won it because he got the times of daylight savingmixed up and so arrived at the course exactly one hour late,so rather than do his normal Thomas series he decided todo the Frylink, so that he would not delay proceedings atthe end.

Both Roger, and Milton, would havebeen pleased.Continued on Page 10

Anne hascompleted 41 handicaps during her “very intermittent”membership since joining in 1992. She normally runs inthe Thomas series but had not been too well so decided todo the walk anyway. She found the course ‘very interesting’and was very surprised when she realized she was in factthe first to finish. Anne does not consider herself a ‘sporty’person and only ever jogged to keep fit, even before Vets.She used to do dragon boat racing and now does a ‘bit ofbush walking’. Originally from Queensland Anne nowworks with the Dept of Health. She hopes to be moreregular at the handicaps in 2010 because her partner,Hugh Moore, is making it a part of his return to runningand so Anne has decided she does want to be left behind.Second place gave the gold medal to Tammy Gerrard,and she was very surprised. There was a major motivatingfactor for Tammy, and that was that her ‘cheeky bugger’husband had said he would beat her home because he isfaster than her. Tammy was determined to prove himwrong, and she did! She also found herself a bit miffedwhen Will Foster passed her going down the hills, soTammy pushed herself a bit harder and was able to passhim up the hills and then again in the home straight.Evidence that she pushed herself was sore muscles forabout a week afterwards. She says maybe her strength hasbuilt up because three days a week she pushes a doublepram with her two youngest children, Lachie and Angelaon board for about 2km and most of it is uphill. She lovedthe course although found the surface a bit ‘rolling', but shelikes most of the courses and being in the Vets. She enjoysthe social atmosphere, the encouragement and is especiallyreally grateful for the child minding facilities.Will Foster was third over the line for a silver medal,his second medal this year. Will was very surprised to beplaced since his re-handicapping after his last win, but wasstill very pleased. He did find it a bit hot and sultry on theday, saying his legs got tired going through the wet grass,but he was able to get away quickly because the course isnice and wide. However he admits he was ‘buggered’ at theend. On the whole though Will says it is a good course. Amember since 1984 Will has completed 171 handicaps andwon three gold, two silver and three bronze medals.Margaret Latham was possibly more surprised thanshe was last month to learn she had won a medal, this timea bronze, for being fourth over the line. After her win lastmonth Margaret thinks maybe with the excellent coachingfrom her daughters, Megan and Karen, she is perhapsbecoming ‘a bit more competitive’. She does always try herhardest though, and at Stromlo she was very pleased withher effort after 2km, and thinking it was a 3km event feltshe some energy left for the last km. Then she realised thecourse was actually 4km! But she pushed on anyway. Thiswas Margaret’s second medal in her seven handicaps andnow she has her eye firmly on a gold medal!Neil Gentle was not surprised to finish in the middle ofthe pack because he says he has done little training of lateas he has been busy house hunting and getting his currenthouse ready for sale. Neil said the conditions were verypleasant, although he noticed the humidity and the softsurface made the going a bit harder. Neil is not used to softsurfaces because he and his wife, Noeline Gentle (whohas competed in the Waddell series in previous years),spend many hours each week enjoying practicing, takinglessons or participating in ballroom dancing.In 20 th position Rod Gilchrist set a new course recordof 0:27:20 for the M60. Obviously out to show his daughterBelinda Bounty and his wife Jenny Gilchrist, bothdoing the Thomas, that the handicaps are serious business.Sally McCabe won the wooden spoon, and like all trueathletes was not prepared to accept total responsibility.She said her new baby – not due to be born till July – heldher up!

Page 14 — May 2010 VetrunnerContinued from Page 10Rad’s performances over the last decade have made hima legend in athletics, triathlon and duathlon circles. Hismost recent triumphs include winning the M80 gold medalat the 2007 World Triathlon in Hamburg, Germany. Hereturned to Europe six months later for the WMA IndoorChampionships in Clermont, France where he participatedin eight events, winning one gold, four silver medals and abronze. Earlier this month (March 2010) he once againreturned home with a bag of medals at the World IndoorChampionships in Kamloops in Canada.Rad’s outstanding local track and field performanceshave been recognized by twice being runner-up (2004 and2008) and third (2009) in the Fristad Awards for athleticsexcellence and recipient of the 2007 Heart FoundationTrophy.Rad also participates in the monthly throwinghandicaps and monthly throws pentathlons. He has alsocompleted eight Vets’ Half Marathons in which he was asan M75 medallist in both 2005 and 2006, and in 2008 setthe M80 record.TONY CAVUOTO: 100Tony’s first monthly handicap was on the old EastBasin Course in January 1992. All have been on the longcourse in which he is always one of the back-markers. Todatehe has won five medals (one gold, three silvers and abronze).Tony is a talented long distance runner and hascompleted many marathons and half marathons. One of hismost memorable marathons was at the 1993 WorldVeterans’ Championships in Miyazaki, Japan.ERIC LINDEMANN: 100Following wife Norma’s meeting up with two women outtraining for a marathon in Stromlo Forest they were bothencouraged to participate with the Vets.Eric’s first handicap was on the old Copland Collegecourse in July 1985. Most of his 100 handicap runs havebeen on the long course, but to date he is yet to win amedal. It has taken Eric almost exactly five years longerthan Norma to earn his red commemorative T shirt. Erichas also completed several half marathons, including fiveACT Veterans’ Half Marathons, but there was a 20 yearbreak between his first and third attempt.Perhaps Eric’s favourite means of maintaining hisfitness is by regularly jogging with their dogs and workingout in the gym, especially on the indoor rowing machine.PHIL TOOMEY: 100Phil was once a regular participant at track and fieldand in both the monthly running and throwing handicapsand in 2004 he served a term on committee. However, themain reason Phil has not been as active in club activities inrecent years as he once was, is that he is kept busy as atrainer of race horses.Phil’s debut monthly handicap was on the Forest Drivecourse within Stromlo Forest in May 1992.

Janice Banens, only just home from successfulparticipation at the World Masters Athletics IndoorChampionships in Kamloops, Canada, was awarded thismonth’s ‘Oscar’ for a javelin throw that had to be seen to bebelieved. One of her throws of the javelin went up, turnedbackwards and twisted in the air before landing on its tail.If anybody else had produced such a throw it would nothave been so spectacular; but Janice won a silver medal inthis event in Kamloops. She also has the benefit of beingcoached by husband Bob who won gold, as well as setting anew Australian Record for the javelin at the World Indoors.(This is only the second occasion ‘Oscar’ has been presented.Trish Thomas bought the Academy Award figurine backfrom Hollywood late last year with the aim of presenting itto the member who had the most spectacular/unusual and/or humorous performance of theafternoon. Some have rudelysuggested it be titled ‘Drama Queenof the Month’).Three of our five Canberrarepresentatives who participated inthe World Indoors competed in thismonth’s throwing handicap. Janicewon gold medals in the hammer(34.00m), shot put (7.60m) andheavy weight (12.47m); a silver inthe javelin and bronze in the discus.Bob won gold in the javelin (49.22m)and bronze in the discus. EvergreenRad Leovic won gold for the M803000m, silver medals for 1500m,80m hurdles and long jump and abronze in the high jump. Our othertwo club members who enjoyed theKamloops experience were multieventerRoger Pilkington andsprinter Ken Telfer.Nola De Chazal and Jean Heath had a big weekendplanned. They participated in an 11km section of theCanberra Two Day Walk before coming to the handicapand were due to walk even further the following day.Duncan Macnicol also had a busy end of the week; onThursday night at the track he collected the trophy forwinning this season’s Daniels Sprint Handicap Series aswell as being the popular recipient of the National HeartFoundation Trophy, then on Saturday morning warmed-upfor the throws by paddling in dragon boat races.Robin Whyte, last month’s winner, was unable todefend his one and only monthly handicap win because hewas well on his way driving towards Perth to participate inthe Nationals. However, he was resourceful as he hadpacked a javelin (and perhaps other throwing implements?)in his van with the intention of having a few practicethrows while crossing the Nullarbor.Thirty (30) participated in this month’s handicapcompetition in hammer and javelin on a very hot andhumid afternoon.Best hammer throws were by Kevin Blewitt with amighty PB of 39.13m, Jayne Hardy 38.43, Bob BanensMay 2010 Vetrunner – Page 23KAMLOOPS MEDALLIST WINS ‘OSCAR’ FORBACK SOMERSAULT WITH HALF TWIST198 th Monthly Throwing Handicap — 27 March 201036.92, Ray Green 36.78, Janice Banens 33.99, PeterShumack 30.09 and Raylea Rudov 28.72m.

Page 26 — May 2010 VetrunnerWorld Masters Indoor ChampionshipsKamloops, CanadaBy Roger PilkingtonI flew out of Sydney on Sun Feb 21 st for my first WorldMasters Indoor Athletics Championship in KamloopsCanada. I had 5-6 days in the USA before the Worlds. Ispent that in the North West part of the USA, taking in aNBA basketball match in Portland Oregon and then I hadfour days in Washington State where I drove (I had arental car) up twice to Vancouver to see the Men’s curlingand the Women’s bronze medal playoff at the WinterOlympics.I arrived in Kamloops Saturday Feb 27. I headedstraight to the airport and picked up Rad Leovic. We thenwent and registered for the Indoor competition which isbeing held at the local university. We ran into Janice andBob Banens here and we all had a partial look at the indoortrack which is 200 metres around with six lanes, some verytight turns if you are in lane 1, the straight was 60 metreslong with nine smaller lanes. The centre that contained thetrack was very impressive andthe area where the track wascould also be used for having2-3 basketball games. Therewas also a swimming pool andspa, a couple of gyms, warmupareas, change rooms, offices fora number of medical businessincluding doctors, physios andmasseurs.My first event was the 8kmM50 Xcountry Mondaylunchtime, it was four laps of atechnical course in a park thatwas next to the ThompsonRiver that runs throughKamloops. Rad won the silverin the M80 race, the first ofmany medals. I ran withinmyself in 36-37mins, I heldback a little because I thoughtthat I was running a 800 metreheat in the afternoon. When Igot back to the track there wasa mix up with the number ofrunners in the heats, I think thecomputer software decided that wewould go straight to a finalWednesday but we should have run heats, so now therewere 12 in our final instead of nine. I also saw Telfer todayget through his 60m semi and make it to the final.On the Tuesday I had the M50 pentathlon. The fieldwas very hot and very intimidating by the standard. Firstup was the 60m hurdles. I decided to just start the eventbut not jump. I didn’t want to risk my dodgy hamstring andI was hopeless at hurdles anyway. I next had the long jumpwhich I did an embarrassing 3.10m. At least I was on theboard, I then threw 7.17 in the Shot put (getting better),then I jumped a M50 PB 1.32 in the High jump on my 3 rdattempt, this was my most points, just over 525. I thenattempted 1.35 and this is where I hurt my hamstringagain, it had been a bit dodgy before I came away. At everyjump I was getting support from my fellow competitors, Ifelt I was part of a team. I felt welcome. Everybodyencouraged each other and it was a privilege to be a part ofthis group. We had all made friendships for life. My lastevent was the 1km and I finished in about 4m 13s. I was inagony every step around the track, but at least I can saythat I set an Australian Indoor record for the Men’s 50pentathlon.My hamstring was still very sore Wednesday so I pulledout of the 800m final, I would have finished in the last two,so I wasn’t worried. I was going to keep icing it over thenext few days hoping that I could come up for my 1500mheat Friday. I was now only a spectator to watch the 200and 800 Finals. Rad did both and he was 2nd in the 800 inunder four mins, he was 4th in the 200 and also he was 4thin the shot put, that is three medals he has won so far.In the 200s Australia did pretty well, two Gold - PeterCombie in M65 and Marie Kay in W50, two Silver - MarjAllison W65 and Kathy Heagney W55, two Bronze —Andre Wilcox M45 (Ken Telfer5th) and Julie Brims W40.On Thursday I pulled out of the3000m. In the morning Rad didhis 3000m and said that he wasvery happy in winning the goldmedal in 17m 17s, which is agreat run for a 82 year old. Radis a inspiration to me. he is ayoung man at heart and I hope Ican keep going like him.Rad and I were staying in theRamada which was a fiveminute bus ride to the track or a10-15 min walk. It had a greatrestaurant that we frequented anumber of nights and the foodwas very impressive. I took apartial liking to the home bakedlasagna and it also helped withthe 25% discount we got as well.On Friday I was finally back onthe track after two days off forthe 1500m. I saw a sportsmedicine guy at the SportsLining up before the Opening ceremony, Rad Centre to strap up my hamstring. Ihad to bribe the girl to hold the sign.was going to need that if I wasgoing to get through the race. I dida few warm up laps on the outside track. It felt OK butwhen I tried to increase the speed I still had a bit of pain. Iwas in the first heat of seven and they all looked reallygood. It was 7 1/2 laps of the 200m track. They had a clockat the start and at the finish, so you knew your time every100 metres.I started off OK, but the rest of the guys quickly ranaway from me. I was struggling and I felt really unfit andthe legs were sore. I got through the 1km in 3:48 and then Iwas lapped by the whole field with just over a lap and thestraight to go. I finished in 5:52 which I am happy withconsidering my injury. I was now finished for theChampionship so I pulled out of the half marathon forSaturday.


May 2010 Vetrunner – Page 27Rad finished off the day with a Silver medal in 60metres hurdles; he was going to have problems gettingthrough the metal detectors at the airport.different, I am looking forward to trying it again one day.Saturday is the last day of competition. Rad on the finalday got five medals, Silver for high jump, 1500m, weightthrow and Bronze for triple jump and 400m.In the afternoon we had the relays for all the ages. Itwas a 4x200m so each leg ran one lap of the track. We hadsix relay teams and they all won medals. They didAustralia proud: Gold - Women’s 60, Silver - Women’s 35and 40, Men’s 40, Bronze - Men’s 50 and 60.Summing up it was a great event to attend, I reallyenjoyed myself, the people were so friendly, the volunteerscouldn’t have done more for you, it was a very well runevent. I am looking forward to Finland in 2012 for the nextWorld Masters Indoors. After the injury I have un’Finnish’business. I hope every member of the ACT Vets seriouslythinks about attending either the World Outdoors orIndoors, with the Indoors we have a full Summer seasonbefore the event, so you will go over there fully fit.Roger and Rad at the turnaround point for the halfmarathonOn Friday afternoon with no events to compete in Boband Janice Banens had arranged for us to try curling at theKamloops Curling Center in Town. A lady that helps outthere gave us lessons, Curling is like lawn bowls on ice, youhave slide the granite 'rocks' from one end of the rink to theother and try and land them closest to the centre circle.After the rock is released two people can then sweep infront of the moving rock to make it go faster. It was a funafternoon, it was really hard, when you release the rockalong the ice you normally slide with it for awhile but Icouldn't do that so I let the 'Rock' go from the start, I reallyenjoyed myself doing something that was completelyMost of the Canberra connection at the AustralianTeam final dinner


Page 28 — May 2010 VetrunnerHOW I TRAINED FOR THE SIX FOOT TRACKby Diana SchneiderEntries for the 2010 Six Foot Track Race opened atmidnight on December 1 st 2009, and at 6:15 am as placeswere filling fast I made a quick and possibly risky decisionto enter for my third time. Although I'd cross-trained Ihadn't run for most of 2009 due to injury and my longestrun/walk in the past 9 months was 19km. There'd be onlythree months to prepare for thischallenging 45km off-road racefrom Katoomba to the JenolanCaves with a cut-off of 7 hours.In the early weeks, distance andtime on my feet was cautiouslyincreased by alternating walkingand running days. I'd power-walkup to 6x1km repeats of the steepestside of Mt Taylor, walking orrunning back down. This was latercombined with a run either beforeor after. Walking/running wasappropriate because this would behow I would do the race.Some competitors run most ofthe way but as I didn't expect torun more than 19km in any onestretch, I rationalised that lots ofgruelling 30+ km long training runswere unnecessary. I did do three ofthese, but most runs were of15-25km. About five weeks beforethe race I did a 7 hour workout onhilly terrain, trying toapproximately follow my expectedracing pattern, running or power walking whenI expected to. It was a confidence booster tocover nearly 50km using this technique. My final 30+ kmrun was four weeks before the race and after that I did noLeft:PeterShumackRight:RobertKennellymore than 18km walk/run at a time. My average weeklydistance for the final two months was 75km. Walkingconstituted about a third of that.The demands of the race are both physical and mental.For the physical I trained how I expected to race, and forthe mental I resolved to enjoy the race and go as I felt,aiming simply to finish by the cut-off. My previous raceshad been marred by cramping,possibly due to fatigue, electrolyteloss and/or dehydration. As acounter (for this race) Isystematically consumed Endura,salt and magnesium tablets, GUgels and drank at most drinkstations, of which there wereplenty. Later in the race I walked ifa cramp threatened. I never wentfaster than in training and wasrelaxed about the finish time. Ididn't cramp and as such it was anenjoyable and satisfying race. Mytime of 6h 35min was slow butwhen Age Gender Adjusted, I wentup 530 places to finish in the top200.For those contemplating doing thisrace for the first time I recommendstudying the course, noting itscomponents and trainingaccordingly. There are steepdescents of hazardous tracks andsteps, narrow technical river-banksections, long steep uphills andJust 10 more metres undulating sections on good wide firetrails.Downhill training is as important as uphill.Train as you'd race. One has to qualify for entry in this raceso plan ahead.

Thirty-four participatedin the actual handicap competition in hammer and javelinwon by Margaret Taylor from Wendy Freeman (O’Brien)and Audun Fristad. Several others came to help mark theoccasion including 11 of the 16 “Originals” who were at theinaugural event in June 1990; they were – Jen Bourke, KenDaniels, Judy and Richard Dann, Ewen Drummond, RayGreen, Andrina Norden, Peter Schiworski, Bryan and TrishThomas and Mary Wahren. Jen and Trish had participatedin all 100 handicaps so were presented with their brightred commemorative T-shirts and individualised steelmarkers.A special edition of Vetrunner was published tocelebrate the milestone.

EwenDrummond was the recipient of the National HeartFoundation Trophy and Jen Bourke the Johnson Trophy.Colin Bridge, Bronwyn Gardner and Geoff Moore werehonoured with life membership at our AGM.Colin served four years on committee, including two asvice president, but it was his 14 years as handicapper andhis enthusiastic drive to incorporate greater use of IT inclub administration that were his most significantcontribution. Bronwyn was vice president for three of the10years she was on committee. She was editor of Vetrunnerfor more than a decade and was selected as a manager ofthe Australian team at three World Championships. BothBronwyn and Colin were recipients of the EncouragementAward in 1984 and 1991 respectively. Geoff served nineyears (1987-95) as our secretary and registrar.

Page 32 — May 2010 VetrunnerSafety Tips for Runners and WalkersCanberra seems a lot less safe than it used to be, and itmight be getting worse. Many of you do long distancerunning and walking away from athletic tracks, throughthe suburbs or out on trails, enjoying the fresh air and theloneliness of the long distance athlete. But …You could be taking a risk if you:• Run or walk by yourself• Repeatedly traverse the same course at thesame time of day• Carry an iPod which drowns outside sounds• Go along on deserted streets at night• Don’t face the traffic, so that you cannot seethe cars coming up behind youInstead you should• Train in a group and stay together• Vary the route and the time of day• Turn the ipod down if you have to have it, orbetter still, don’t wear one• Stay in familiar areas with other peoplearound• If the same car cruises past you more thanonce, take down the license number and makeit obvious that you are aware of its presenceVALE Milton Valentine26 April 1953 – 14 March 2010What follows is the (edited) text of the tribute to Miltonthat Rob Ey gave at his funeral.First meetingMilton is known to us for his exploits as a runner,basketballer and cyclist, but I actually met him playingcricket. It was at Page Oval, Feb 1980. I had only been inCanberra 2 weeks and my new workplace (AustralianBureau of Statistics at Cameron Offices, Wing 7GB) wasplaying cricket against Wing7GC. I have very fewrecollections of the game, apart from Milton.As the newbie on the floor they let me open bat andMilton was the opposition wicketkeeper. Like all goodkeepers, he had a fair bit to say.Milton was very good at sledging – loud, abusive,constant (bordering on incessant) and extremely funny. Acouple of things set him apart though. Firstly I couldn’tbelieve how slowly he spoke (I assumed at the time he musthave had a few beers for lunch) and secondly, hiscommentary was mostly directed at his own team mates. Itwas a good tactic – it’s hard to concentrate on hitting theball when you‘re laughing.Intro to RunningI had known Milton for about 18 months when I hadanother significant desk visit.He suggested since I wasn’t getting any taller the onlyway to keep improving my basketball, was to get fitter. Hesuggested that I start going for a few runs at lunchtime.Milton had been running for a few years and felt it hadhelped his game.There would often be 30 or so people gathering for alunch time run at the ABS. I soon discovered that while thelunchtime runners ranged in ranking from AssistantStatisticians down to me, once the running shoes were on,(but keep your distance)If confronted• Keep moving away as quickly as you can• Head towards other people• Use discretion if someone in a car asksdirectionsIf attacked• Keep as calm as possible• Try to fix a description of the attacker in yourmind• Do not show fear or plead• Try talking while looking for an escapeopportunity• Do not fight or struggle unless there is noother optionIf any of this seems unnecessary to you, let me tell youthat it is based on a serious incident where a number of uswere threatened while on a run near Old Parliament Houseon Canberra Day. So, what do you think of these points? Doyou think we in Canberra should be more safety consciousthan we have been in the past?By Geoff Moore, who daily updates running andtraining advice at http://geoffmoore.blogspot.comMilton at the EdinburghMarathon in 2005it was clear who was incharge. The coursechosen each day wasthe one Milton wantedto do. The run didn’tstart until Milton wasready to go. He was thebloke that everyonewanted to run with.Not only was he one ofthe stronger runners,he just led the groupthrough strength ofpersonality. He alwayshad a story to tell andthe time on the runsflew by. They weregreat fun and I washooked.Milton was at that timetraining to go and runthe Boston marathonwith his brotherQuentin. Within a few weeks he had convinced me to starttraining properly and to do a marathon.18 months later, running had replaced basketball forboth of us. Milton kept coaching, but his own focus was ontrying to run the best marathon time that he could. We ranat lunchtime, we ran before work, we ran after work, weran Cross Country races and track races and we had somegreat times running in team road relays but the focus wasto run marathons as fast as we could. We experimentedwith different training techniques and steadily improved.Milton was a fierce competitor – he wasn’t fast ( he used tosay in his slow drawl. You can’t expect me to have any fasttwitch fibre’), but had great pace judgement and was ableto push himself extremely hard. He was very hard to beat


in a race.Marathon running suited Milton down to the ground.Marathon running rewards many of Milton’s strongesttraits. Goal setting, discipline, hard work, routine, focus,consistent training and preparation. When you added hisabsolute determination and sheer bloody mindedness youhad a good package. We never missed a training session –if it was 40 degrees we went for a run, if it was minus 5and sleeting we still went for a run. I checked back at myrunning diaries and I reckon that we probably rantogether more than 2000 times and of those at least 300would have been long runs. We trained and prepared as ifwe were Olympians. We used to joke that the only thingthat held us back from Olympic glory was a lack of talent.Our long runs became legendary. A core group ofpeople formed and for many years we met virtually everyweek for a long run. We only missed if we were running amarathon somewhere. The run was always a 6am start atCameron Offices. In winter, that meant that the first hourwas run in the dark and often freezing cold. Due to variouswork and family commitments, the long run eventuallymoved to being weekends and then was usually followedwith a leisurely breakfast. People came and went a bitfrom the group, but Milton was always at the core. Miltonwas the one we got advice from (wether we asked for it ornot). Milton paced many of us to our marathon PBs. Hehad the right mix of motivator and slave driver that couldget you to lift when the marathon got hard, which italways did.Mountain runningWhen mountain running kicked off, Milton became akeen participant. He was always looking for another wayto challenge himself, so why not make running a bitharder by racing up hills. Again, it was a tough sport, sohe was good at it. In 2006 he was 3 rd in over 50s section inthe Australian Championships, and in 2008, only a fewmonths before his cancer was diagnosed he repeated thatplacing in the over 55 section.Any talk about Milton’s life has to have a few warstories.Warrumbungles marathonOne day in 2004 Milton pointed out that while we hadrun in a number of the same marathons, we had neveractually run one and finished together and we should. Forsome reason we decided to go to Coonabarabran to run theWarrumbungles marathon. This was a bush course in theMay 2010 Vetrunner – Page 33National Park and they had multi events on that allstarted at the same time. As well as some short runs, therewas a marathon and a 50k run. We of course entered themarathon.We settled down in about 7 and 8 th position andenjoyed the scenery. At about 25km, the marathon & ultracourses split, with the 50k runners required to do an extra8km side loop. We arrived at the checkpoint and asked theofficial how many marathoners had gone through. Wecouldn’t believe it when he told us that everyone else hadheaded off on the 50k – without even trying to - we were inthe lead! We high fived each other and took off along thetrack into the bush with a real skip in our step.Milton the coach immediately came to the fore –‘its notover yet, we’re in front, but we gotta keep focussed’. It wasa remote narrow bush track and there was no-one around.We discussed at length our options as to what we would doif someone ran us down from behind. Suffice to say, arange of options were discussed, of varying degrees oflegality. I was pretty sure Milton was joking, but ... myheart leapt into my mouth when with about 3km to go Ifirst heard footsteps behind us. I was stuffed. The option ofpicking up the pace was beyond me. I urged Milton to goahead, but he insisted that we would finish together andthat he would drag me to the line. The footsteps got closer.How serious was Milton about our other ‘options’?The footsteps drew alongside and we were relieved tofind it was the leader in the 50k event who had caught us.We wished him well as he passed. We were still in front inthe marathon. Milton continued to coax, cajole and bullyme to the finish line - we crossed together in equal firstplace. The time was awful, but we didn’t care. Missionaccomplished.It is hard not to resort to clichés when summarisingMilton. In the last few days, I have heard friends use a fewphrases such as ‘Larger than life’, ‘One of a kind’, ‘theybroke the mould after they made Milton’ and ‘when thegoing gets tough the tough get going’. In Milton’s case theyall actually do apply.Milton was a very good athlete. He was a better coachand mentor. He was the most determined person I haveever known. Milton was just a super bloke, the best friendyou could have and I’ll miss him enormously.Don’t forget to come to theACTVAC AGM.25 May 20107:30pmSouthern Cross Club WodenSpeaker: Dick Telford

Flying over the inland isfascinating, and much quicker than caravanning. A movieand a few drinks and you’re there. Geoff Crumpton hadenormoustroublereaching hisdestination.The flightwas OK butno taxis coulddeliver thebig man, sohe curled upon someone’slounge roomMatt Muell high on the long jump.floor the firstnight.On arrival inPerth I went to collect the hire car. Obviously they’re in adifferent time zone. They had givenit away 6 hours earlier! Ray Green’sjavelin, and it’s a long one, wasmisplaced in flight. He was sufferingwithdrawals, but thankfully it camethe next day. Maybe it was thrownall the way across?Ken White suffered from the “lostluggage syndrome”. That’s whenathletes are seen waiting at thefinish line to tackle finishers andremove sweaty uniforms, spikes andeven undies from exhausted athletes.Paul and Susan Archer had a bitof bother with their accommodation. Theyarrived at Scarborough to find a doggy, erdodgy, hotel. The front window was missing,and halls littered. Next step was drug dealing andprostitutes. They quickly exited to the multi-storey AlanBond development across the road. Perhaps only jail-birdsfrequent that hotel ...You know you’re having a bad day when: 1) you try toact like a ghost and walk through the flyscreen door. 2) youare waiting at the door packed when no-one else is readyand you realise you’re still on Eastern time.3) you get intothe rear of the Getz (a two door for four people) andmanage to put the front seat belton! I won’t mention Marg Taylor’sname here.I decided to splurge on ziplock bagsfor the sandwiches. I didn’t knowthey came in different sizes- a tightsqueeze for only ¼ sandwich.

Thatgrand old site ofEmpire Games,Marg’s world recordtriple jump and Ray’s WA junior javelin record is makingway for housing. Tears of blood were cried at the site ofsuch sacrifice. The real estate dollar beckoned again.I thrilled the audience (all three people) when theythought the official said 50 metres for a hammer throw. Abig sigh went out with the correction of 40m. I was like aSydney silky, snapping at anything that moved, eventaking up residence at the front of the dinner playingpaparazzi to the AMA award winners.Robin, the walker, was reprimanded by the discusofficial for posing for the paparazzi as a discus thrower.Yes, he was in the event, but just needed his photo taken.Sue Bourke, was almost named thesilver streak, but broke through forgold in the 400m. She was onlybeaten by in-form Marie Kay, whojust broke the world long jumprecord with 5.41m. Sue tried to getsome shine to rub off Marie whenshe borrowed a spanner from her,but no luck. The spanner wassilver!Jayne Hardy turned her trustyBlackberry back from daylightsaving time. The Blackberry has amind of its own though and hadalready changed times. Spooky. Too muchchocolate was blamed for Jayne wearing thebunny tail in the wrong spot. Fancy wearingit in the throwing circle!Cory Collins had timetabling issues. She was offenjoying herself in historic Fremantle, when she had aniggling thought that she had come to the west for anotherreason. She flew back tothe track to find her heatof the 200m lined upready to blast the track.Cory blamed me for beinglate as I had writtenabout her warming up forhours in Spain.Raylea Rudov, thematchmaker, tried to setup Mary Wahren with ayoung Swedish plumber.Cory Collins and Robin Whyte,don’t tell ValRaylea Rudov revving upround & roundRaylea’s toilet was leaking, so when she called roomservice, she “accidentally” gave them Mary’s room number.Mary thought it was Xmas when the young Swede offeredto fix her plumbing.

Damn, shethought that extra chocolate had paid off!Jan Banens was so excited to have Bob Banens presenther medal that she stripped off her sunnies and T-Shirt toreveal, wait for it, yes, the ACTVAC uniform! Mmmm. Boblater enthralled the audience and the runners by bouncingthe heavy weight down the 400m track start, bowling overthe lane markers. One thrower rolled it down to thefinishing line. Spectators yelled “wait, weight!”John Lamb, avid sprinter is now avid hurdler. In onlyhis 2 nd 300m hurdle race he won convincingly, and evenhurdled convincingly. We kept thinking John hadAlzheimer’s as he no longer recognised us, and walkedaround in a Victorian uniform. But no, his twin brotherwas the culprit.Trish Thomas was so exhausted after the throws pentthat she went to sleep on the tour bus. No, not the tour ofWA, the ½ hour tour of Perth! Bryan Thomas, keen runner,was thrilled at breaking his walk record. He didn’t getdisqualified.The ACTVAC men’s relay team took the baton proudlyagain. In both 4x100m and the 4x400m the silver stallions-Alan Lamb, Ken White, Geoff Sims and Matt Muellblisteredtheir feet to bring home the silver.Did we have fun?

Page 44 — May 2010 VetrunnerA DOUBLE CENTURY TO CELEBRATEBRYAN THOMAS reviewed the history of theThrowing Handicap from its inception back in June1990 in the Vetrunner of June 2000. This is an edited versionof that article.Our Monthly Throwing Handicaps have now been operatingfor over a decade and its popularity has once moredemonstrated that veteran athletes enjoy participatingespecially if they have an opportunity to perform well andexperience success. The Monthly Running Handicaps wereone of our real success stories because of the way we handicappedrunners; not by guesswork or artistic license in tryingto handicap runners according to what the handicapperthought they might be able to do on a particular day, but bydetermining their handicap from their finishing place inprevious eventsSome members had been toying with the idea of doingsomething similar with the throws for some time. Howevernothing was attempted until Trish Connell (now Thomas)said she would devise and conduct a handicap competitionfor throwers.Changing formatThe first Monthly Throwing Handicap took place inJune 1990 at the Masson Street Throwing Field. Five moremonthly competitions were held that year. In the first year,each month's handicapped competition was only in one ofthe throwing disciplines with the next months handicapdiscipline being conducted so that handicaps could be allocatedfor the following month's competition. The June 1990handicap competition was in the shot put while discus wasthe extra event; in July the discus was handicapped andjavelin was extra, in August the javelin was the handicapevent and the hammer the extra, and so on.By the end of 1990 the new handicap series had provenpopular and so at the commencement of the following yeartwo disciplines were handicapped in each month's competitionand the overall winner was determined from the resultsin both. In FebruaryAlthough the Masson Street Throwing Area has alwaysbeen the venue and HQ for our Monthly Throwing Handicapsthere have been three distinctly different sections utilised.The original site which included three throwing circles,two of which were enclosed by protective cages wasconstructed by Dr Eugene Magassy, his son Albert andsome other volunteers including Ewen Drummond andJack Pennington in the early sixties.For the first six and a half years (1990-96) our handicapswere conducted on the original site, but in April 1996ACTEW fenced the area and began excavating a huge 30mdeep hole for a gigantic waste-water storage tank right inthe middle of the fields. Thankfully because of a sympatheticattitude to our plight and the expert negotiatingskills of Alan Williams and Charlie Rann, ACTEW movedour circles and a throwing cage to a temporary site on theother side of the cycle path nearer to Watson Street. Thisnew and temporary venue was our home for the next eighteenmonthly handicaps (1996-97). Most competitors enjoyedthe ambience of the new setting as it was snuggled withinthe pines: that is except when wayward hammers or discusflew into over-hanging branches or javelin throwers had toaim their throws down a relatively narrow gap within thetrees.By the end of 1997 ACTEW had finished their project;leveled and seeded the surface and constructed five excellentthrowing circles and two protective cages for our use.So at the beginning of 1998 we were thrilled to be able tomove onto the newly developed site. The "Originals"The term "Originals" in our club has come to refer tothose special folk who were at the formative meeting whichsaw the birth of the ACTVAC, or to those who participatedin our first running handicap. Now it can rightly be bestowedupon those who participated at the first throwinghandicap.On a sunny Saturday afternoon June 23, 1990 sixteenmembers arrived at the Masson Street Throwing Field forthe inaugural Monthly Throwing Handicap. While theywarmed up for the handicapped shot put event most werenot too sure how this new form of throwing competition wasgoing to work. Of the sixteen, fifteen were competitors andone (Bryan Thomas) was the designated official.So who were these "Originals"? Here they are in order ofplace at the conclusion of the first handicapped competition.(See table above).Seven of the "Originals" (Trish, Jen, Mary, Ray, Ewen,Ken and Bryan) are still regular participants ten years afterthe first throwing handicapBryan and Ken have been club presidents while Trishand Mary have served many years on the Executive Committee.Ray is the coordinator of the National WinterThrowing Championships, President of ACT Athletic Counciland an AAVAC Board Member.Edna. Richard and Judy appear to have retired fromveteran athletics. Both Andrina and Peter were forced toretire from the sport due to injury. Champion all-rounder"Gordon lost a long battle with prostate cancer, passingaway in 1996. Jan and Charlie moved to the sunnier climesof Queensland while Stuart lives and works in Cowra.Some memorable incidentsOver the decade many unusual, interesting, humorousand even a few unfortunate incidents have added to thehistory and reputation of the Monthly Throwing Handicaps.We have participated in all kinds of weather, rangingfrom the beautiful to the most beastly. We have thrown insuch cold conditions that the shots and discus have beenjust too cold to hold and some have resorted to wearingwoollen gloves in order to throw them. On the other handthere have been days when it has been so hot that the implementswere too hot to handle and they needed to becooled with a wet cloth. Perhaps the hottest occasion wasthe March 1998 Handicap. The sun beat down so mercilesslythat most sensible people wanted to stay within theshade of the trees and few were prepared to stand out inthe field as an official for long and would only emerge fromthe shade when called to throw.At times it has been so dry and the ground so bare andhard that placing markers has been difficult. On these daysa mallet is required to drive the markers into the groundand even then it is difficult as the steel pegs frequentlybend in the process. But on other occasions we have to combatheavy rain and then some competitors will sit in theircar and only come out when it is their turn to throw. However,pity the poor officials who attempt to keep scoresheets dry, mark throws or collect implements while huddlingbeneath umbrellas. Wet weather also means someonehas to dig temporary ditches to drain water from the throwingcircles or the sand filled shot put area. We have evenhad ducks bathing in the water filled lines of the hammersector and only when a hammer landed near them did


May 2010 Vetrunner Special Coverthey move.As a major storm drain runs alongside Masson StreetThrowing Area we have witnessed just how quickly anddangerously a flash flood can occur. One sunny Saturdayafternoon while conducting a handicapped hammer competitiona dramatic thunderhead developed and unleashed arelatively brief but violent rainstorm.The normally almost dry storm drains soon becameraging bank-breaking rivers. At the time, Ray Green washaving his turn in the hammer circle and unfortunatelyhe threw the hammer well outside of the left-hand foulline. It hit the ground and bounced towards the floodeddrain. Ray gave chase, but he was not quick enough andit rolled into the raging torrent. We could hear the hammerrattling along the concrete floor of the drain butcouldn't see it beneath the murky waters. Ray returnedthe following morning and retrieved our hammer 400mdownstream.Implements have also been temporarily lost in the longgrass that sometimes takes over the area following a wetperiod. In these circumstances some throwers tie a piece ofbrightly coloured material on the hammer handle to makeit easier to spot in the long grass.The Clohessy TrophyPat Clohessy was our popular hands-on Patron from1989 to 1994, and although his expertise was in distancerunning he was so impressed with the enthusiasm andfriendliness of the participants in our Monthly ThrowingHandicap he asked if he could donate a trophy for the series.The Clohessy Trophy is our prestigious "club-person"award (its equivalent for the Running Handicaps is theEncouragement Award). It is presented annually to recognisea "regular" who has not only benefited through theirparticipation but has also contributed to its success.Winners have been: 1992-Peter Freeman 1993 -WendyFreeman 1994-Attila Spaits 1995 - Ewen Drummond 1996-Fran Schiller 1997-Jen Bourke 1998-Ray Green 1999-Jayne Hardy.However everyone who has ever been involved with thethrowing handicap competitions would agree that its creator,organiser, handicapper and indeed its driving forceTrish Thomas would win such an award every year.A photo titled “Build it” 13 July 2004presumably at a weight pentathlon.
