Very sad news regarding Jim Tobin (NZL) passing away recently at the age of 85. We were aware that he had not been well for some time.

As mentioned by WMA President Stan Perkins, Jim was a stalwart of OAMA/OMA as shown by his service in many roles over many years.

JIM TOBIN (NZL) Council member 1990-92 and 2002-2014, Vice President 1992- 96, Acting President 1995-1996, President 1996-2002.

In addition to administrative duties Jim was a very determined athlete who competed for some 70 years.

With his then wife Helen, who was OMA Secretary for 12 years from 1996 to 2008, they have contributed enormously to the progress of masters athletics in the region.

Bob Schickert

OMA Secretary
