Peter Wilson Carnival - Nelson's Bay
More info will be provided, however a quick mention for all our Junior players, Coaches, Managers, Parents and Referees who attended the carnival at Nelson Bay last weekend.
We had a record number of teams attending the carnival in boys and girls competitions last weekend. Saturday weather was just awful with steady to heavy rain combined with cold winds making it unpleasant for all, to say the least. Thankfully Sunday was much better.
Teams played at least three games Saturday and at least one on Sunday. Details of results will be posted in the next day or so.
A special mention for our refs who attended. Each team is required to provide one ref. After some late withdrawals, we ended up one short. However thanks to some of our refs putting in an extra effort we managed to cover the gap.
Refs could expect to do 5-6 games on the Saturday. A very special mention to Charles (chook) Mill who reffed 10 games, then backed it up with another 5 or so on Sunday. Wonderful effort which hopefully was appreciated by all.
Also a very special mention to Sophie Hinde. This was Sophie's first carnival and she impressed enough to be awarded a grand final to ref. Terrific effort and hopefully will lead to more carnivals and higher grades.
Well done to all - thanks to all who participated in any way.
