7th Annual Scottish Masters Athletics Heavy Events World Championships
Hafnarfjörður, Iceland

We will host the Athletes Meet & Greet this year at the facilities near the field of competition.


Where: at Lava Hostel - Hjallabraut, 220 Hafnarfjordur, Iceland


When: starting at 16.00 (4pm) on Friday 23 June.


Why: welcome, 2017 Hall of Fame inductions, MWC 2018 Announcement, AD comments on rules of the competition, last minute details and weigh-ins for lightweights.


We also have access to a school adjacent to the field and hostel. There may be additional activities at the school, but for now the Lava Hostel is our central point of contact and many of us are staying at the hostel.


Pétur Guðmundsson is our Athletic Director and he has arranged for an all-star lineup of field judges. I think you all will be happy with guidance they will provide.
