Maccabi Athletics Club AGM and Trophy night

Posted: 18-Jun-2018 by Athletics

The club AGM and Awards night was held last night at Duncan MacKinnon – over 60 athletes, coaches, members, friends and family attended a great night.

Highlight was the awarding of club Life Membership to Jemima Montag for her fantastic contribution to the club, on the track and the road, over the past 7 years. Jemima’s past 12 months have been extraordinary – starting with winning a silver medal at the Maccabiah Games in July 2017 in the 10K road running race and culminating by being selected in the Commonwealth Games team – then race walking to victory, over 20K, on the Gold Coast in April 2018.

The first club athlete to achieve not only open national representation at the highest level – but then to win the gold! She “has done the club SOOooo proud” – as they say.

Full list of awards' winners

Bendigo Bank Caulfield Park Community Bank again presented a substantial cheque in support of the club and our junior training program – for which we thank them immensely – so PLEASE help the club – use the services of Bendigo Bank Caulfield Park – the more you use their services, the more the club may benefit.

A new committee was elected – unfortunately due to work relocation Executive members Zac Ashkanasy (moving with the family to London for 3 years) and  Braham Shnider (working out of USA for most days of the month) are unavailable for the committee. We thank them for their expertise and immersion in  the club over the many years and we will miss their wisdom and athletic prowess. Ralph Marks and Martine Mitchell also did not stand for re-election due to work and family commitments – we thank you so much for what you have done for the club.

The on going committee members : Len, Adam, Amy, Sandy and Nir welcome Orli and Marc Blecher who nominated and were accepted onto the committee. And 2 or 3 others, at the conclusion of the meeting – have asked if they could join the committee – which we will formalise in the coming weeks.  

The club is growing strongly at the moment under the coaching guidance of David Brock (from MULTUS) and Sam Spicer – and it is fantastic to have the support of so many athletes and their families and of course Maccabi Victoria.
