Unfortunately the Whyalla Gift will not go ahead this year which left a vacancy on the SAAL calendar.

It was recently agreed, that Western District AC will host a carnival at Ellis Park in West Terrace on Friday November 20th.

We are still organising sponsors of the races so at this stage we are not sure what the level of prize-money will be offered. Hopefully we can announce the events and prize-money by the end of next week.

The feature events will be the Keith Aiston 70m Open & Keith Aiston 70m Women. The late Keith Aiston passed away in 2011 and during his last few years as a coach, he was based at Ellis Park.  

Due to restrictions with the track at Ellis Park, apart from 70m; the only other distances we will conduct events for will be 300m and 1000m.

As we have only confirmed the meet in the last fortnight, there is a lot of work being done behind the scenes to secure sufficient sponsors for the carnival.

We anticipate the meet commencing at 6.00pm and hopefully conclude around 10.00pm, depending on the number of entrants/heats.

Well Done to Westerns for picking up the baton and covering the shortfall.
I guess my concern however is the lack of 120m races leading into our most prestigious event.
In the past if you were prepared to travel to Mt Gambier and/or Whyalla you may have been able to get ticks on the board but with Sacred Heart now being 100m and Westerns a 70m there appears a slight shortfall in the number of 120m racesleading into the Bay.
The fact that the Bay Handicaps are almost set in stone by Brighton , Im suggesting to athletes out there that they dont leave their run to late and make sure they run at Henley and PA.
Also I think , now that Westerns are holding 70m races the league should move the Womens 70m at the PREBAY to a 120m race.
Theres a 120m for OPEN at the PREBAY but not for Women.I think this would help the handicapper a lot more in accessing the Women.
