No World Masters Rankings in 2018

No World Masters Rankings in 2018.
You can help change that.

As of now, only 44% (about 52% with other promised grants and contributions) of the funding needed by October 31st has been raised. Contributions are the easiest way to ensure we meet the goal and only 3,000 minimum membership contributions will do it. That is 3,000 of the over 187,000 listed athletes and 370,000 site visitors – not a lot!  I’ve mentioned the site’s risk in p revious newsletters (JuneJuly) and some athletes have taken action (spread word and contributed) to help which has made a big difference. Thank you for the help and generosity.

What happened in Rankings this month
Inserting performances, including finding / converting complete meet results on websites, is done each month as I trust you all know. This section is devoted to the other major things I do each month so you can be better informed.
Fundraising

Hope it is clear to everyone how important fundraising is to this site. I and others are focusing on this much more because of the importance. Progress is being made with getting commitments from organizations, getting to prospective sponsors and developing fundraising programs.

MastersRankings in Toronto & Worchester

Thank you everyone who came to see me at the USATF Throws and NCCWMA  Championships. It is always great to get your feedback, show you things about the site that many miss, discuss how I can improve the site for you and introduce people who weren’t aware of the site. Missed seeing me and want to discuss something? Anyone can call or email anytime about anything.  I can be reached through Facebook Messenger,  Skype and Whatsapp.

What’s happening in Rankings next
Get caught up

Thank you to everyone who sent complete meet results, including national championships. While my to-do list is still immense, I plan on getting thousands of emails addressed and get caught up on the queue of results emailed and posted to the site.

Sunglasses & dri-fit t-shirt

You will be able to purchase both of these as part of a MastersRankings fundraiser! More details coming within the next few weeks. Are you looking forward to getting yours?


Ranked Athlete Spotlight

This month’s athlete spotlight is a little different by featuring the future NCCWMA leader and a glimpse of his vision for the future. Leading a WMA region is daunting and thankless to many partially because the next leader has big shoes to fill following Brian Keaveney and Sandy Pashkin. I have the privilege of knowing more about these jobs than most Masters Athletes and am really grateful we have so many people like Brian and Sandy (and thousands of others) who work tirelessly and selflessly so we can compete. Thank you from all of us for your dedication to our sport.
