Sports Reports November 24
The Super Spuds are a good chance of fielding men’s and women’s senior teams in the centenary season after the AGM was held last Wednesday.
The club needs more people to get involved, but has a committee led by returning president Britt Youman.
Beau Orchard is vice-president and Rhonda Youman treasurer.
The club is still taking applications for secretary.
The next job is to appoint coaches for the teams and seek sponsors.
In addition to the men’s and leaguetag teams, the club hopes to field a women’s tackle team.
There will also be some centenary events during the year and past players and supporters who would like to lend a hand in organising or running these would be most welcome.
Some possibilities include a reunion, a special game-day, book and public displays.
Anyone who would like to apply for coaching roles, club secretary or jersey sponsors can email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Britt on 0409 215 031.
Players and volunteers are also welcome to get in contact.
The next club event is the Christmas party and presentation on December 18th
No bowls were played on the weekend due to the inclement weather, and there are no matches set down for next weekend. On Tuesday the 30th November, the highlight of Guyra’s bowls calendar begins for a 6 day carnival.
Starting with the ladies triples on Tuesday and the mixed triples on Wednesday which are still looking for players. Thursday and Friday will be the prestige pairs and the open triples on the weekend, players will be travelling from all over the state for a share of the over $8500 in prize money.
