Season End & Secretaries' Scoop Hiatus
Wow, who can believe we're nearly there?!! Congratulations to everyone and thank you for all the hard-work each and every one of you puts in to make sure the kids can get out and have a game of footy on the weekend.
After this edition, Secretaries' Scoop will be sent out as needed rather than every week.
FYI - Emily will be on leave from next Thursday, 3rd of September and returning for the presentation day (13th September).
Presentation Night Invitations
Invitations for clubs, award finalist, best & fairest place getters and premiers will start being sent (via club secretaries) tomorrow and should all be received by mid next week.
We look forward to celebrating the season with everyone on the 13th of September.
