Welcome to the 2018 season!!
Welcome Doggies, to the 2018 season.
I hope everyone had an enjoyable festive season.
The committee has been hard at work over the “off” season; organising sponsors, the indoor competition, registration night, Hockey Roadshow, Hookin2Hockey, and getting everything in order for the season ahead.
Thanks to Life Member Kyle for his work in planning the Family Movie and Rego Night. All the children who went had a great time.
Thanks to the O’Halloran Family who have been coordinating the Blazing Stump raffle over summer. When the season starts we will start a roster for team members to assist for an hour on Tuesday nights. The raffle is a big fundraiser for the club and we all need to chip in to help keep costs down.
Other thanks to Treasurer Mel Pontt for the extra effort she has put into the lead up to the season. We both appreciate the amount of work that past Secretary Vanessa did and continues to do for the club.
Thanks to Marg, Dennis, Grace and Fraser for conducting the Hockey Roadshow at local schools. It’s an important program to introduce kids to our sport and club.
Cheers to Craig Pontt for heading up the Hin2H sessions with his merry band of helpers.
A big thanks to Life Member Marg Brown for stepping into the role of Secretary for this year and taking a lot of the workload of Mel and myself.
Obviously, the biggest news for us this season is the ground replacement. After years of work with Council and HAW, the turf replacement is in progress and due for completion by round 2. Please remember to take care of our new field!
I would like to thank all our Sponsors for the 2018 season and wish all our members all the best for a great year. GO DOGGIES!
