We have moved up to division 2 in the southern country pennant this season and happily this has been a good move in that we have won 2 games and lost 2 games with still 2 home games to be played. This has meant that our team has not been required to give so
many strokes to the other teams.
Jan Palfreyman with Tim’s help has once again very successfully started the footy tipping roster for 2019 with about 42 tipsters entering the competition. It is pleasing to note that some members are participating in our fundraising efforts. The club corporate day was a success with the Associates entering one team and also very generously donating a frame photograph worth about $100 as a prize.
As most club members are aware, over many years the Associates have been busy fundraising to furnish new club rooms when they were built or purchased. Unfortunately, this has not eventuated for the past 13 years and so we were approached by the Members to donate some of that hard-earned money for a new mower. The ladies agreed to donate $10,000 to this purchase as it was recognised that we all would benefit from this donation.
