KAA April Trials.
NEARLY CLASH !
Another booking (for a competition Opening Ceremony) caused us to miss some of the events we had planned.
Nevertheless we arranged a time compromise and managed to complete essential Trials on M100m. plus large competitions in Long Jump (9 boys and 6 girls) and Shot (13 boys and 4 girls).
The problem with the low performances in LJ was due in part to the state of the runway and the take-off board. As has been mentioned elsewhere, we do not have "permanent" sites for our boards - they would be "moved" ! So they have to be "cut in" every time. This causes erosion and distortion of the ground on the approach to the "pit".
The Shot (all using the correct implements) had a few good performances, e.g. Raobu, Aruea, and Kakoroa.
