PRESIDENT - Notice to members - 6th Jan 2021


Wednesday, 6th January 2021

Welcome to 2021 (though based on some of the restrictions in place it does make you wonder if this is Groundhog Day and we find ourselves back in 2020). I hope everyone has had an enjoyable Christmas (Santa found you) and you have rolled into 2021 ready to hit the ground running for pre-season training. I will wish everyone early all the best for 2021 and hope that the year certainly pans out better than our 2020 season

Which brings me to the next part of the email, Pre-season 2021: Pre-season training will start on the 11th January (6.00pm) meeting at the rooms.

Training will be every Monday and Wednesday from this point on. Please be prepared as I'm sure Gavin will be ready to go.

In terms of the season ahead, we will need to "wait and see" as we are assuming that a footy season will be on, but will be subject to any changes/restrictions/requirements outlined by the AFL/Government authorities as to what needs to happen during the year.

Anyway, thanks again for the support in 2020, let’s get along to the start of a new year (and new season) and hopefully see as many people as we can next Monday night.
