We hope everyone had a safe and happy Xmas/New Year period. The Boolarra Football Netball Club is back in full swing preparing for the upcoming season, which we are hoping will be a prosperous one on the footy field and netball courts. Training has been back since mid January and all players are eager to get stuck into the upcoming practice games. This year we have organised two practise games, both are away games. On 14 March we play Gormandale and on 21 March we play Tarwin.
Football Training will change back to Tuesdays and Thursdays as of 10 March. With this we are very excited to announce that Thursday night meals will begin again on 19 March. The great news doesn’t end there however, this season we have John Battista and his crew cooking meals on Thursday nights. Many may know John as the Chef at the Boolarra Pub and by all reports Country Victoria’s unofficial best footy club meals are set to continue for another season.
We recently ran a barbecue at the Boolarra Folk Festival and what a very successful day it was. We sold out of food by 3pm, as did many other stalls. The Club would like to thank the Folk Festival committee on the continued success of the day and especially thank all our hard working volunteers that helped out.
You will notice a bit of change around the Club in the coming months as many projects start to commence and finish. The most exciting of them is the new electronic scoreboard that is in the process of planning and construction. With help from the federal government via a grant, Club funds and a lot of donated time/materials/skilled labour we hope to have the scoreboard operational by mid season. It will have the capacity to also play movies on the screen allowing for possible movie nights in the future.
We have also been lucky enough to receive funding for a new drinking fountain via Gippsland Water, new bain marie and benchtop display fridge for the canteen.
The Club would like to thank our hard working team behind these new projects and grant applications as we push forward to improving the infrastructure and facilities.
We are always looking for more volunteers and helpers at the Club, we are a small community club and rely on locals to fill roles. Please do not hesitate to come forward if you think you can fill a role at the Club. No matter how small. President Simon Buglisi is very eager to get more people into roles at the Club to ease the burden on long serving volunteers that have taken on too much.
