Vale Patrick (Rick) Healy
NSLAC is saddened to let you know that one of our members, Rick Healy, passed away unexpectedly this week. Rick was an active committee member, an accredited official (who volunteered at centre, zone, region and State) and a dedicated helper. Rick gave freely of his time to our centre and Little Athletics to help ensure that all of our children, not just his own, had the opportunity to be their best. The Little Athletics movement will be poorer without him.
On behalf of our members, NSLAC extends our condolences to Rick’s family. We will mourn Rick’s passing but we will hold onto our memories of his good humour and selfless contribution to our children.
Rick’s funeral will be at the Macquarie Park crematorium on Wednesday 7th October at 2pm. Tributes to Rick can be placed on www.heavenaddress.com.

Athletes must be registered for Sunday coaching by the end of the Saturday carnival on the day before the coaching. There is no email registration afterwards and places are limited.
Trans Tasman Tour- January 2016
Nomination forms for the 2016 Trans Tasman Tour to Auckland are now available on the LANSW website. No trials will be held so when nominating athletes must include performance (between 1 Oct 2014 and 21 Oct 2015) for their nominated events. These performances will be verified by LANSW, and selectors will then select the Challenge Team. However all athletes who nominate will join the tour.
The Tour is for registered athletes in the U11 and U12 age groups only. Nominations close at the LANSW office on Wednesday, 21 October 2015. Click here for Bulletin No.1 which contains all the details as well as the nomination forms for both athletes and officials,
If you have any questions regarding the Tour, contact numbers for the Trans Tasman Committee can be found in the bulletin. NSLAC Centre Secretary, Sally Richardson, is also the Trans-Tasman Secretary. She will be visiting the U11 and U12 groups at Rotary in the next couple of weeks to tell you all about the tour, but in the meantime, you can contact her by email or phone, or have a chat with her at the desk next Saturday.
