President’s Message: Round 13

Hi All Sharks,

And then there were three games to go?  As we move towards the final can I please remind everyone that this is kids sport, we need to set the example, and have some FUN!  I have said enough around this in recent weeks so I will leave it at that. 

Also, apologies about the absence of coffee at Domeney on Sunday, this was not the canteens managers fault. Unfortunately, Janine who runs the Coffee Van independently to our club could not attend as she was in hospital.  This was all last minute and could not be helped. 

Sharks Ball – Saturday 1 August 2015 – 2x Saturdays away, 46x tickets sold, we are aiming for 150!

The emphasis on this event is not money raising but to get all the parents together for a social night out.

This year’s event will be held at Rosebank Receptions 149 – 151 Warrandyte Road Ringwood North between 7.30pm – midnight. Tickets are $75 a head with beer, wine and champagne, canapés and light food, mixed drinks at bar prices and Jimmy Darvidis live. 

For information please contact Michael Newton – Events Coordinator – on mobile 0421049904 or via email Tickets are available online: and will not be available at the door.

We Need You On Committee!

At the end of Season 2015 a number of positions will become vacant on Committee. In the past weeks I some generous people have put up there hand for the President, Director of Football and Secretary roles.  These will be announced at our Annual General Meeting.

Whilst some of the Executive roles have been covered we still need at Treasurer and other people to come onto Committee as General Helpers.  We are NOW seeking your support, so if you are in a position to assist can you PLEASE give me a call.

Season Finale and Sprint – Sunday 9 August 2015

With 5 more home and away matches to go until the end of the season I thought it timely that we start to promote our end of year events.  The Season Finale and Sprint is a great way to bring the season to a close and reflect with family and friends on a great year.

Presentation Day – Sunday 13 September 2015!

The Sharks will again hold a Presentation Day at Domeney Reserve.  As per last season, the day will be split into sessions with the Annual General Meeting occurring at the midway point.  For those who need to attend both sessions, volunteers will be putting on a bbq and drinks.

Annual General Meeting – Sunday 13 September 2015!

The Park Orchards North Ringwood Annual General Meeting will be held at on Sunday 13 September 2015 at Domeney Reserve, coinciding with the interval of our Presentation Day. 

This meeting will discuss such items the years football and financial performance, and it is hoped that we will also identify and vote in new committee members.  Any member wishing to agenda items for discussion must do so 14 days prior to the meeting.

Each member eligible to vote is entitled to appoint another member who is eligible to vote as a proxy by notice given to the Secretary no later than 48 hours before the time of the meeting.  Proxy forms are available on request via the club President of Secretary.

End of Season Team Break Ups!

If your team is having a break up and would like to use the facilities at Domeney Reserve can you please call or email our Secretary Ondine Lowther – phone 0425 788 126 or

Volunteer thanks! 

Over the next five weeks can I please ask that you all acknowledge the efforts of your teams engine room – Coach, Team Manager and any other helpers – because without these people things just wouldn’t happen.  On behalf of the Sharks Committee, I say thank you! Go Sharks!

To this end, if you believe someone is worth of recognition, each year the Sharks award a Senior and Junior Best Club Person.  If you would like to nominate someone, please drop me a line or give me a call.


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 you all the very best for Round 13. Please enjoy yourselves.  Go Sharks!!!!
