Also to George for his magnificent props and lighting, Kayne for the music and Jo for her organisation skills. Great teamwork including Mary in the canteen too....lots and lots of fun had by all.
Competition tomorrow - we will probably be light on for numbers as many people will go away for a long weekend. If we call out for volunteer helpers, please assist us so the events can be run as safely as possible. To those going away...enjoy.

12/10/2014 - 2 Come & Try Days in Sept and 2 completed days of competition in October now sees our registrations of financial members reach 289 which is the same number of athletes we finished up with at the end of season 2013/2014. This is a terrific result with lots of children still trialling or due to pay their fees if they now wish to join. Please remember, club fees are due and payable directly to the club you join and proof of birth needs to be presented to either the club registrar or Kathleen, Coburg Centre Registrar. These can be scanned and emailed, brought to training on Wednesday night or brought to competition on Saturday morning.
Due to such high number of new families trialling, please understand that we have a lot of children in certain age groups. New parents need to ask questions of the parents/committee members of their clubs. The Officials on duty at events need to focus on running those events so that we finish on time.
25/09/2014 - All returning members who have not yet re-registered MUST do so ASAP. If you do not register and pay before the first day of competition on the 4th October, you will be waiting in the queue for service until after our new families/athletes have been processed. Additionally your child will not accumulate points until they are registered.
ALSO - please remember that children who wish to join, cannot participate unless they have already turned 5 years old. New athletes need to bring their birth certificates or other form of proof for loading into the system please.

14/12/2013 Congratulations to our 11 teams who represented us admirably last weekend at Albert Park in the State Relay Championships. One of our teams broke the previous Victorian State Record, but as they finished in 2nd place, will not be recognised for that achievement. It was a terrific day and many thanks to Craig for doing our duty for nearly the whole day - in the Recording room - he said it was "the best seat in the house" !!!
