  • We have an advertising plaque that was included on the Finish line Banner at the World Champs held on the Gold Coast back in 2016.  They are the ones at the top of the finish line banner, see the picture below. If anyone who competed is looking for some great memorabilia, then they can purchase this from the AFA for $100. It has velcro on the back all around the perimeter. First in best dressed.
  • Memberships fees will again be payable in June.  At the beginning of this year we decided to change membership to the financial year basis, and so only charged a 6 month fee in January. Look out for details next month of your new annual fee.
