Well hasn’t it been a crazy time since the last Link was published? Back then we were reporting on pre season, practice matches and the excitement of the new season ahead. That certainly feels like a long time ago.
Currently our season has been put on hold until restrictions from COVID – 19 are relaxed or lifted. It has left many players frustrated with all the uncertainty as to whether games will be played or the season cancelled. One thing is for certain though, the Club rates everyone’s health and safety as priority during these times and hopes everyone is well and staying safe.
We will keep everyone updated on the situation on the Facebook page as soon as we receive any information.
The Club has however continued the members draw through its Facebook page every second Friday. For $50 you can join as a social member, which puts you into the running for a $50 first prize and $25 second prize. Hosted by Senior Captain Sam Mazou make sure you tune in for some great entertainment.
You will notice a bit of change around the Club 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 next 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.
