President’s Letter: Edition 15

Hi All Sharks,

Thank you all for your attendance at Burger Night on Sunday. The final Home & Away evening was one of the best attended for years. Great to see so many boys and girls running around enjoying themselves. Unfortunately, the grounds and Club rooms were left a mess of drink containers and paper. In future, let’s not be litter bugs. 

Thanks to the Under 15’s for their BBQ attendance and doing such a great job in feeding the masses. Also, to Dave and Kev behind the bar and Nina for her coordination.

Well done to our sponsors for making the night a fun filled affair with their support and being involved, not just on the night, but for the year.

Committee, Colts, Youth Girls and helpers, you were great in assisting to set up and cleaning up afterwards. This great Club continues to lead the field because of your gracious help.

Thanks to all our Coaches for Season 2018. As each team completes its season then positions immediately become vacant for Season 2019. Thus, applications are now open for Coaches to apply for 2019.

Now it would be just as pleasing to see many out supporting our Finals’ teams next Sunday. Players feel special when competing in finals, to see a sea of Red, White and Black at their games. Please try to get to the finals.

Our Club Captains Tyler, Alex and Brooke spoke eloquently at Burger Night about the season and all the players contribution for the year. Thanks for your help with the raffle. Unfortunately, our Colts and U18 Youth Girls teams fell short in making finals this year. Well done on your final year of Junior footy.
