Farewell Barry Young

NZ Masters is very sad to hear that Barry Young passed away peacefully at 11:45 on Wednesday  3rd December 2014.

Barry was a gifted athlete and true gentleman, universally respected and admired. He will be sorely missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Barry’s family at this time.

Subscriptions now due

NZMS subscriptions for 2013 are due, on 31 January 2013, but can be paid from 1 October 2012. This years subscription is $50 covering all of 2013.

From 31 January 2013 all members who have not paid their NZMS fees through their club secretaries will be removed from the 2013 membership list, and will therefore lose access to the members only area of the website (MyNZMS), their ability to swim at NZMS sanctioned meets and a number of other membership only benefits. New and past members can pay their renewal now through their club secretary. Please note that sometimes, registration of your payment can take a few weeks to occur, so ensure you leave plenty of time between making your payment and swimming at registered events.

We're now on Facebook

NZMS is now on Facebook. Trying to be trendy? Well no, not exactly.  Facebook provides an opportunity for the organisaton to interact directly with it's membership, as well as providing another channel for promoting our organisation to the world. It's more immediate than the website, and gives us the opportunity to let you know the latest information at the earliest possible time, along with some great content from around the Web, and gives you the opportunity to provide feedback on your experiences with Masters Swimming in New Zealand.

As for the website - well the two will compliment each other. The website will always have the same great content on it - latest events, results, and lots of great news.

So get along to our Facebook pageFacebook page. Make sure you "like us" to keep in touch with all the updates on the NZMS site, and add some comments to the posts that are going up on the page.
