We would like to say a big thank you to Secretary Jo Vella for stepping up as secretary in 2015 - it is certainly not an easy job and our members appreciate the tireless hours you put into running our club. We wish you a restful 2016 season.
Thanks also goes to outgoing Registrar Jodi Grant, who has been involved on our committee for the past 8 years in a range of rolls. We thank you for all of you work in that time and wish you well on your new adventures at Penrith JL.
Bring on our 50 Year Anniversary in 2016 - a massive Night on the Fields with carnival rides and stalls, along with a Red White and Blue Ball, are just two big events to look forward to!
The 2015 Junior Presentation Day will go ahead on Saturday 7th November 2015 however the venue has been changed from Leonay Oval to the hall at Nepean High School.
With the recent weather, the carnival rides we booked were not going to be allowed to operate under council rules and regulations. There are thunder storms predicted tonight and although Friday looks like it will be a fine day, showers are predicted to continue throughout Saturday. For these reasons, we have decided to move the venue.
We would like to thank Nepean High for their support in making arrangements for us at such short notice. We apologize for any inconvenience caused to Emu families but we have kept the presentation times the same to avoid major disruptions.
Presentations will take place in the main hall and we ask that players arrive on time for presentations. There will be areas set up for teams to sit down and wait with their coach and manager with seating for parents and siblings around the hall. Trophies will be presented on the stage and there will be room for parents to come up and take photos. Each player will receive a trophy in the main hall and be given a voucher for a sausage sandwich, drink and chips which will be served in the entry area.
Please ensure players arrive at the following times:
2:00pm – all Mini players in the Under 6s, Under 7s and Under 8s teams
3:30pm – all Mod players in the Under 9s, Under 10s and Under 11s teams
4:30pm – all International players in the Under 12s, Under 13s, Under 14s and Under 15s teams
Families are welcome to stay around and enjoy the duration of the presentation. There will be a canteen and BBQ in operation.
Please note that major awards for team of the year, coach of the year, and Mini, Mod and International footballer and player of the year will be awarded at the BEGINNING of each session so please ensure players arrive on time.
Rain rain go away, come again after Presentation Day! We are doing everything we can to make sure our Junior Presentation Day goes ahead this Saturday. Meat has been ordered, a huge drink order has been received, and the trophies are ready to be handed out. We may have to change venues, times and/or the rides may have to be cancelled (council will not let them operate in wet conditions) but please know the committee is working hard to make sure the day goes ahead and we will inform coaches, managers and the community of any changes as soon as we confirm them.
