Presidents Prattle July 25th 2017


Well we are at the business end of the season. With only one more game of the home and away rounds to be played before finals.
Team Black are well placed in second position on the ladder and look like they will face off against Warriors White for a spot in the A Grade grand Final.
Team Orange are sitting well back in 7th position and will be playing Warriors Maroon in the C Grade Grand Final.
But before that there is one last game…. The home derby match up between Orange and Black. As always this will be an interesting game. So come on down this Sunday and support the local teams. Don’t forget we will be heading back to our sponsor’s place at Cafe Martini after the game for drinks and a meal if you wish.
But what else has been happening and what is yet to come?
Last Saturday saw a great tussle on the diamond between Wang Rangers and the Wodonga Warriors. But no matter what the result, we are all mates after the game. This was evident when quite a number of the Wodonga crew stayed back to support out annual Luck Draw event. Great to see such great camaraderie between teams. The night was a huge success. I will take this opportunity to thank all the committee and members that put in their time and effort to make the night run smoothly. It makes my job so much easier. THANK YOU.
