Vale Bob Blinkhorne

On Tuesday 6 November 2022 we lost another fine Life Member with the passing of Bob Blinkhorne.

From 2000 Bob performed many functions at Manly Warringah Little Athletics and on its Committee including the roles of Officer for Equipment and as Treasurer. He was also an age manager of the U7 girls long after his own children had finished their Little A’s experience. Furthermore, for twenty years he and his family ensured that all zone and region officials were catered for by hand-making the fresh lunches, morning and afternoon snacks on each morning of the weekend carnivals.

Bob undertook his roles without fanfare and gave of his time to others voluntarily. This was most evident in his capacity as a joint canteen operator for the Centre for close to ten years.

We offer our condolences to his children, Tara, Joel & Kiri and their families and thank him for making little athletics a joyful experience for generations of our kids.
