Prizegiving, Coaching, Recruiting

Hi All,

Prize Giving was brilliant on Saturday night. 

The weather was dicey, but the Eastside Tavern hosted us brilliantly, providing part of their lounge bar, the BBQ, and free drinks pretty much for the whole night.That was incredibly generous of them - and I'd encourage you all to repay them with a bit of patronage over the winter. (Google it)

So the party went extremely well, and the night was made even better by a large contingent of past players - who showed the love they still have for the club, and the strength of the bonds they formed playing for Star up to 20 years ago. 

The prize giving ceremony was a nice way to recognise some stand-out performances this year and the prizewinners really reflect the diversity that exists in our club - which is really cool.

The full list of prizewinners is here on the website.

Thanks to everybody who came down.

Cliff Dickeson will be running a "Getting Started" coaching course for beginners on the 7th May at the University indoor nets (between gates 3A and 3B) form 9.00 am to 2.00 pm.
Could you please register your interest with me as soon as possible? If you want to do the course you'll need to buy a manuals at a cost of $25.00.

Remember that we want to add an extra team to the club in the off-season. That means we need your help to bring in new recruits. If you have people that you have talked to about coming to the club then please send on some contact details so we can get in touch.

That will do! Enjoy your time off, but keep in shape, pre-season starts in June.

I'd get there on time if I were you, as our mates at the Easty are putting $1000 on the bar for us - but it won't last forever....

Cheers and see you tomorrow.
