What a fantastic and rewarding week at the Creek.
Thursday evening we were fortunate to experience a guest speaker, Jason, from beyond blue who enlighten us with the dangers of depression and not to ignore early signs and be prepared to speak out about your own personal situation.
GREAT PRESENTATION. Thank you to beyondblue.
Then Saturday. What a day.
It all started early when the Colts put a sensational performance to down the top side Melville by 1 point.
Then a nail biting performance from the reserves to come from 5 goals behind to get up and draw their encounter with Melville. Gutsy effort.
It was then left up to our League side to tackle the in form Melville who where in third spot on the ladder.
Trailing all day their will to win and a never give up attitude saw them get over the line in the last quarter to win a great game by 9 points. OUTSTANDING.
To each and ever player that wore and embraced on the BLUE jumper on Saturday congratulations,sensational effort.
We then continues to party at our Casino night which saw clubs rooms full of people and enjoying the wins, but more importantly the spirit of the beyondblue fundraising effort.
As President I could not be prouder of all concerned, players, members, supporters and visitors which made the day a wonderful success. I have not finalised all figures as yet but it looks very likely we will be able to pass on $12,000.00 to beyondblue. A special thank you to Jesse Stewart for his outstanding contribution along with his mates Willo & Dylan. You are special Jesse.
Thank you to all that assisted on the lead up and day. Great job done.
Don’t forget presentation this Saturday are back to 6pm followed by happy hour & nibbles.
