Coffs Harbour game
Unfortunately after a lot of hard work from both the Hunter AFL Masters Committee and those in Coffs Harbour, we have found it impossible to generate enough interest in this weekend away for it to be viable.
Therefore, we have to cancel our trip.
Let's hope we have a better level of enthusiasm next year.
Your Committee is intent on succeeding in getting a team going in Coffs Harbour. This would give us a link to Queensland with a possibilty of holding mini carnivals in Coffs Harbour.
To say your Committee is disappointed in the responce would be an understatement.
Our next game is on Saturday the 11th of May timed to start at 5pm.
This is our first game on No. ! Sportsground for theyear and the ground is looking spectacular. So if you want a game os a great paddock then all you need to do is show up.
Don't forget also we have a promotional game on in Coffs Harbour on the June long weekend. We need names of those interested asap. Let's make this a weekend to remember as we aretrying to get a team going in the Coffs Harbour area.
Please make an effort.
Max McMahon Oval, Rutherford is the venue for our next game.
Sunday 28th April is the date and start time is 11am.
Please get there around 10am for rego and warmups.
There will be a milestone presentation on the day to a couple of our players (if they show up).
This Sunday - 21st April
Thie game this Sunday (21st April) is at Tulkaba Oval, York St. Teralba. This is the home ground of Lake Macquarie AFC.
Be there at 10 for regos and change.. Game is to start at 11am.
The yellow and red card system will be in use this week and for all future games. This is to quell the increase in abuse of umpires. We need to keep in mind the umpires ar not being paid for the game and as such do not have to stick around. remember, no umpires no game.
Coffs Harbour Game
Your committee has done a heap of work and organised a game at Coffs Harbour (the same as last year) to be held on Saturday 27th April. Yep ANZAC weekend.
We travelled up there last year with intentions of creating some interest in the clubs up there forming a masters side in the region. We all had a great time away with dinner the night before and a fantastic feed at one of the local clubs sponsors..
We are set to play at the stadium ground. This is the ground the Sydney Swans use when up there for training camps. Times are yet to be set but it looks as though we will play between the reserve grade and first grade.. At last a group of spectators..lol..
We are sure to be welcomed back and in return they are trying to get a team together to come to Newcastle for our mini carnival on july 6th..
Your club is willing to put a bus on to get us all there and back but we need numbers.. Please let Sue know if you want to go.. email email@example.com if you are keen..
