Archived Newsletters

Thanks to the efforts of George White, John Hore and Doug Smart, SAMA now has a collection of newsletters going back to the early days of the club in electronic (PDF) format, from 1975 when we were called South Australian Veterans Amateur Athletic Club (SAVAAC).

Since there are a very large number of these (approx. 230), we have decided not to put them all on the website. However, selected examples are available for immediate viewing through the links below. If you would like to see a copy of a specific newsletter from the past (1975-2011) not included on this page, send an email to George with details of the issue required (refer to index), and he will arrange for you to receive the relevant file.
