Awards, Presentation and AGM- Committee Positions

On behalf of the committee, I sincerely hope that all our members and families are safe, healthy in mind and body and are adapting to much more time spent at home.

A quick update on what we are doing as a club in regards to Awards, Presentation , and our AGM.

Due to current conditions, our presentation is postponed to just prior to the start of next season (DTBA). In the meantime, once we finalise all award winners and special recognition categories, we will publish online on our facebook page and website (Update 17/5/2020): we have had some issues finalising results (missing members in the results database which we are working with timing solutions to work out) please bear with us. Trophies and other awards/ recognitions will be available at the presentation. We may request photos that we may use (with parent/guardian permission) for this online publication.

Our AGM is also postponed indefinitely, at this stage until at least late June/ early July. The current committee will hold their positions until this time. We are calling on all interested parties to submit applications to be part of our open and friendly committee. All positions are open. For information, on positions, please go to:

click here for details and committee position descriptions

Nominations close 4/6/2020 at 4pm.

Note: All positions are open. If we do not receive at least one nomination for all executive positions and at least one nomination for Rank and Recording, Uniform, Coaching and Championship Officer, unfortunately we will not be able to continue on for the 2020/21 season.

In season 2019/20, we had a number of new committee members join who have injected some new life into the club, they really just need a few more like minded individuals in order to make the club run well and be the best that we can be, we were a little short in number. Please seriously consider, if we can not form a committee , we can not form a club.

I will also take this opportunity to announce that I will not be standing as President for the 2020/21 season. It truly has been a rewarding experience, but am at the end of my useful contribution. I will not lie, it is a challenging position. I will be available, a long with a couple of older more experienced members to help with handover and advice.

Stay Well!

Michael Pickering
