21 July 2016
What a wet game day last Saturday. Well it did not rain on our parade but I believe the YM teams went home feeling a bit let down. A spirited and hard fought competition across the top squad teams. This is exciting hockey and when Melville are at or near full strength we are dangerous to any team men or women. A great effort by our top athletes for their very convincing wins. Singing the Melville song never felt better over and over again. What fun it was.
Ok enough bragging and time to pass on some information: The change rooms have been handed over from AUSCO to the club and we are starting to use them. Anyone finding a defect please let Graeme Coleman or myself know and we will get it fixed under warranty. There will still be a bit of work to do and that is the extra cement work around the base and the moving of the fences and gates to give us a secure boundary and added and improved entry gates. By mutual consent the new change rooms have been assigned to the top squad ladies. So we expect some inspiring signs up soon just like the men in the western old change rooms. Outside of major events the 4 change rooms will be shared as required amongst the teams on the day.
You will start to see advertising for the wind up function. So start thinking about getting your tables together as this year we really want a big one. For me it would be wonderful to see a Junior coaches, coordinator and committee table come together. The integration of Juniors and seniors this year is profound to the point of seeing so many youngsters playing seniors top level is very noticeable. The integration between the seniors and juniors must mean something is going right. I like to think it is due to our Junior Development Squad headed by Mathilda Carmichael (Tilly as we know her). Her coaching and coordination staff are very active and all Melville supplied members. How good is that. Well done to this dedicated group and to all of the coaches and Coordinators and Junior Committee members you guys are incredible.
30th July a huge event with City of Melville members invited, local members, sponsors and Life members all on the card to be present. Let’s show these fine and busy people how Melville turn up and support their teams as our new drive is directed to new and improved clubrooms. We need this for our growth and member support. What better way to get support ourselves than to show this group we understand fully how this works and with numbers present can demonstrate we are all in together.
See you at the club.
