Vale Bevan Hutton.
The TAL's Co-Patron Bevan Hutton sadly passed away on the morning of 18th August 2015. A Life Member of the TAL, Bevan was elected as President in 2006 and stood down the following year before being elected as Co-Patron in 2008, a position held until his death. At the closing of the 2007 AGM, Bevan thanked the TAL, advising that he had been involved for 62 years. Eight years on and his involvement has now spanned 70 years, an incredible achievement. Bevan will be sadly missed.
Vale Andrew Willis.
Another sad loss for the TAL with the passing of our former sprint handicapper, Andrew Willis. Andrew passed away late on 8th September 2015 after a long period of ill health. He was a passionate and enthusiastic member of the TAL and was recently awarded Life Membership of Athletics Tasmania for his outstanding contribution as an athlete, official, administrator and coach.
