📌 2022/23 Dot Mills Official of the Year

Lisa Colquhoun
Lisa attends most meets and commits many additional hours as a member of the Joint Officials’ Committee, Call Room Chief at Nationals and as a Silver Level Walks Referee.  She is efficient and proficient in everything she does and can be relied upon as a team member in any role.  She is a great support and mentor of Technical Officials in the ACT. 

Gerard Ryan
Gerard attends most meets and dedicates many hours as Competition Manager. In addition, he commits many additional hours to Athletics Australia and World Athletics competitions.  He is one of the first to arrive and last to leave at all meets. He is a great role model for others.

📌 Official of the Month - March 

Geoff Bartley
Geoff is the starter for almost all AACT and ACTMA competitions and turns his hand to major LAACT championships. He often operates without an assistant, doing the work of two people on his own. Geoff is friendly and approachable, loves chatting with athletes, which helps put them at ease.

Chris Timpson
Chris was nominated for his work at the LAACT U9-13s Championships on the 18/19th March. Chris works quietly away ensuring that events can go ahead, and at the end when most people have departed, he's still there ensuring everything is stowed in its correct place. Chris' commitment to serve athletics in the ACT continues and is outstanding.
