Yes, that’s right, non-members can also subscribe to receive updates from the AAC. All you have to do is subscribe via the AAC website here The flipside of this is, however, that members may not get all the updates unless they subscribe also – it isn’t automatic with membership. So check with your acquaintances in the AAC and Chapters and make sure they are subscribed please. The AAC also has a Facebook page where current news and pics may also be posted. Again, not ideal, but these are our primary communication channels given we don’t have an active forum or similar.
Or you can just ‘phone me.
WAC The WAC is done and dusted with Brad acquitting himself very well, placing 22nd overall after a tough full four programmes. Complete results are at civa-results . 18th in the Free Known, 21st Free Unknown #1, 25th F/U #2, and 24th F/U #3. Given the disrupted preparation it is an admirable performance – congratulations Brad. Mikhail Mamistov won his third WAC, and Rob Holland the 4min Free, again.
2017 AAC Regulations The 2017 Regs are finally on the website – some appendices have not changed so still show 2016. Go and download them and have a look, particularly if you are officiating or flying at the upcoming Nationals.
