President’s Message: Round 10

Hi All Sharks,

Wet! Yep, I reckon that just about sums it all. What a terrible day to spectate football, but from all reports most of our players loved it! I know the canteen staff were kept busy, thank goodness for pies, pasties, hotdogs, dim sims, coffee, hot chocolate!

A special thankyou to those of you who continued to brave the cold and attended our Burger Night. To those of you who couldn’t make it or chose not to attend, you are very intelligent and we hope to see you at our end of year finale, there are still plenty of prizes to give away.

As previously reminded, this is our busy time of the year in terms of functions etc. For those of you who like to plan ahead, if you are looking to hold an end of year function for your team at Domeney Reserve, can I ask that you raise this through our Secretary Ondine Lowther for coordination?

Good luck for the remainder of the year, remain involved, and thanks for all your support.

Sharks Ball – A Touch of Brownlow – Saturday 26 July 2014!

Next tickets day: Sunday 20th July at Domeney Reserve. EFTPOS available!

The Sharks Ball is our next big evening on the Sharks Calendar with this year hosting a new venue, food, service.

Education Evening – Thursday 7 August 2014!

Each year the Sharks Junior Football Club hold an education evening on topical issues impacting our community. This year’s topic is ‘Mental Health In Sport’ which will take a look at the pressures often associated with being successful whether at school, sport or in life and the by-products of these pressure on our children. More information will be provided closer to the date.

We Need You – please consider coming onto committee!

We are always seeking support on Committee so if you are in a position to assist in 2015 can you PLEASE give me a call.

At the moment there are people performing roles on committee who do not have children at the club, and I know that at the end of Season 2014 will see a number of vacancies – football department, equipment, merchandise, canteen, general.

Unfortunately, without support things will suffer or fold, so please give me a ring and we can discuss the vacancies and what these roles entail. I took on the role of President because I was told someone has to have a turn, I hope it is a simple as that!

Sharks survey!

The Sharks survey is receiving good patronage. The survey sits on our new website, and I encourage you all to have a look and provide your comments. The future direction of this wonderful club will be based on your comments and feedback.

So, if at any stage during the season you wish to raise issue with me – positive or negative – please feel free to do so either personally or via the telephone.

Wishing all the very best for Round 11. Please enjoy yourselves. Go Sharks!!!!
