President’s Message: Round 8

Hi All Sharks,

Thank you to all of the attendees at the Sharkwiz on Saturday Night. The atmosphere was electric, the crowd enormous and the noise at disco level. Representation was awesome from our Under 8’s through to the Colts. Well done all for participating. 

Congratulations go out to all the U12 helpers, from Juliet, Louise & Tam through to the support helpers with wrapping and set up for the night. Our veteran, Mike Newton, had the evening flow wonderfully and without a hiccup. Thanks to Dave Philipsen for a truly remarkable trivia set of questions and the ability to allow the evening to flow.

Dave, thanks for the video displaying shots of every team, milestones and the future Sharks Youth Girls. Our vision is to empower Youth Girls into our Sharks family next year. To date we have had over 40 verbal registrations going forward. Surprisingly, or should I say encouragingly, I had three Sharks mums approach me about a potential Ladies Seniors Team going forward, Wow, what a night.

Well done to table 18 on winning the evening by just a few points ahead of 2nd and 3rd. I have heard that ‘Google’ may have played a part in one of these teams playing so well. To table 9, thanks for trying so hard, however may I suggest that pre-trivia drinks may not be the best idea next year? We were looking for factual answers, not ‘creativeness’.

Anyway, as our major fundraiser for the year, the 160+ in attendance voted it a great night.


Queen’s Birthday Weekend
