Brothers and Sisters of the Sherrin,

          I am a bit late this week so sorry about that there has been lots on around town. The season continues to draw closer and whichever team you follow I do hope you have a great year and you enjoy your footy. Our first game is on next weekend in Cairns where we catch up with our brothers in the far north. It is always a great trip and this year being held at Watson Oval the famous Tigers ground I expect more of the same. Everything is being held at this location so games, awards, meals and entertainment all in the one spot so no excuses for not having a great time. We are still welcoming players to join us so no matter where you are if you can get away please join us. Give me a call on 0487725674 to get your name on the list and likewise if for some reason you can't make it let me know. First game is at 2.30 so we need you there no later than 1.30. This is footy for fun and to catch up with our great mates in Cairns.


  Training is on at 10 down at the Tigers on Sunday so try and get there by 9.30 to we can kick off on time and more importantly get off to have a drink. I get thirsty on Sunday's. We have been having some great turn outs with between the 25-30 each week so well done to everyone. If you have not registered yet please do asap. See Rod or any committee member and they will point you in the right direction.


  Julie is organising some raffles so please get involved as all the money raised goes to worthwhile causes especially our main one the Ted Whitten Prostate Cancer Foundation


  For all guys over 55 there are teams being formed for a Bali 9's comp in June (9/10/11). Now if you are interested can you give me a call. We would love to take as many North Queenslander's along as we can. Jack is the main man in the program I am just his lackie but if you think you could get away would be great.


  What about Tiger flying out of Townsville direct to Melbourne how good is that for the National Carnival this year. Perfect timing and cheap fares!! You should be considering your options now to make the most out of the carnival guys. Just a heads up.


  With the local season just around the corner and 3RAR on standby most of the clubs are in need of some level of support. You may not be able to play but could help. Give it some thought and if you can get down and see what you can do. It is easy for the clubs to do the permit on line.


  That is about it for now legends so please keep living the dream and talk soon.
