Who wants to host 2018 worlds? (Time for SoCal in rotation)
WMA Secretary Winston Thomas says World Masters Athletics is looking for bidders for the 2018 Stadia Championships (aka outdoor worlds). “The Bid application, guidelines and a preliminary contract are on the WMA Website under Championships (Championship Bids). For all Affiliate, Cities or Towns with interest, please read the information. For any further information, please contact the WMA Secretary. or any of the mentioned officers in the Bid Guidelines for more specific points. All completed bid applications must be sent to the secretary by the 1st September 2014.” Since 2015 worlds are in Lyon, France, and 2015 in Perth, Australia, it seems a good time for an American bid. How about Mt. SAC and Pomona in the Los Angeles area or UCSD/SDSU/Point Loma Nazarene in San Diego? In 1989, Eugene outbid San Diego for worlds. Let’s get the meet back south.
