Yes the weekend was cold and particularly wet however we did manage to get through most of our games. Unfortunately due to the extremely wet conditions we have had to reschedule games away from Greensborough park this week to give it a chance to recover a little.

One bonus out of this is that FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTY is back!!!! We have scheduled a Tackers game starting at 6pm v Parkside at Whatmough park. BBQ/Food/Drinks will be available during the game  – after the game the clubrooms will be open and the AFL game will be on the TV’s. It would be great to see as many people as possible supporting this night.

TRIVIA NIGHT – wow what a success. It was pleasing to see the clubrooms packed to the rafters. It was an amazing turnout and an amazing evening where heaps of fun was had by all. A night like this doesn’t have this type of success without some extremely dedicated and hard-working people behind the scenes. In particular I would like to thank our organisers and MC’s of the night, Dean Arnel and Chris Gatt (Aka- Sam Pang !!!!) . No they were not a professional hired company but two St Mary’s parents giving up there time. A job well done gentlemen.

Just a reminder that our Poker Night and Gala Ball are approaching quickly. You should have received an update on dates and tickets from your team managers. Poker night is July 20 and Gala ball 3 August – with a two week break with school holidays approaching after this round these dates will be upon us before we realise so please approach your team manager or a committee member on Sunday evening  this weekend if you interested in attending.

This Sunday evening will be hosted by our Under 11 and Under 14 age groups. Everyone is welcome back to the rooms. Food will be provided for all children. If Parents/families wish to bring food/picnic basket ect please feel free.

There will be coaches Speeches, Lucky Jumper number for the players for a chance to win a rebel Voucher, and our weekly raffle and joker jackpot!!!

Finally it is important we continue to support our Sponsors. One of our Major Sponsors, Banyule Dental provide the most comprehensive range of dental services in the Greensborough area in a friendly, caring environment. Their emphasis is on patient education and preventative procedures, however they provide the full range of treatment options including cosmetic/reconstructive work, dental implants, crowns/veneers, orthodontics/Invisalign, wisdom tooth surgery and treatments for sleep apnoea/tooth grinding.

Good luck to all sides this weekend and remember “IT IS ALL ABOUT THE KIDS”.
