Brothers and Sisters of the Sherrin,

              I hope all are well and living the dream. We have some special activities coming up and would like to run them pass you in the hope we can get your support.


1) Richmond Game 27th May 2017:

              This is fast approaching and we need all the support we can get. The Richmond community is looking forward to this and I believe even more locals will be getting involved this year. Be part of something special, supporting remote communities, advancing the great brand of AFL while having a great time yourself. I will be going to everyone who went last year via text today but if you can let us know of your availability. The Caravan Park is available and within walking distance of the pub ( as long as you don’t have a busted leg) Gibbo is taking names or you can let me know but let's behind this and share the love. ( It's only a 5 hour drive each way, so why not car pool to further reduce cost)


2) Mother's Day this Sunday 14th May 2017:

                 No need to miss training we are putting on a Mother's Day Special. Julie and the Ladies are providing a chicken and champagne lunch with a door prise for one lucky Mother. Entry is free, watch the boys train and spoil the ladies. Guys training is on as usual at 10 and will be a good lead up for Richmond. Not a bad turn up last Sunday considering it was straight after our QCC Carnival and I think everyone had a good time. Same will most likely go for this weekend.


3) Local Competition:

                  Guys f you can throw some support behind the local comp would be great. The Swans are looking for players so if you are under 45 why not give that some consideration. But it would be fair to say all clubs could do with any support from spectator to direct involvement. Volunteers are amongst our most special people in the community and we have less of them today than from 5 years ago. I can assure you there is more to be received from the program than what it cost. Give it a thought.


4) National Carnival is only 5 months away now and as per previous emails accommodation could be a bit of an issue. There seems to be a number of houses available but like most things first in best dressed. Also now is the time to ramp up the training. A little bit now will deliver a lot at carnival time. You can't jam it all in the last month or two especially as you get older. Trust me I know I am old.


That is for now legends please stay safe and talk soon.
