SAAA Handbook:1979: Officials

The sport couldn’t run without officials – not to be confused with administrators.   The former stand out in all weathers measuring jumps and throws, timing and starting track events, while the latter sit in the office and organise meetings, etc.   We have the officials with their events and their addresses so that meeting organisers can invite the officials of the grade and in the numbers they want.   For some reason the women’s officials are listed in three pages at the back of the book while the men’s officials are listed earlier.
