Waubra waffle, week ending 16th May

This week we head to Rokewood to take on the Grasshoppers, there will be plenty of good games of football and netball throughout the day.

Last Saturday was a huge day for the club as we had our Ladies Day, followed in the evening with the Good and Services Auction. It was a great day for the ladies who were treated to delicious snacks and plenty of people to chat to. There was raffles and door prizes which along with the game balls that were auctioned at the G&S auction raised a huge total of $1,300 to go to Brest Cancer Research. This is an awesome effort and we would like to thank everyone who contributed and donated food or items to this very important cause. The G&S auction was a huge success and a great evening to be at the club. It was great to see so many people enjoying the night, which was so successful due to the generous donations of people in and around the club. A special thanks to Rohan Brown who headed the organization of the G&S auction and the team that supported him.

On the sporting side of the day there was some tough games played. The seniors won by the narrowest of margins and had a nail biting finish which had everyone from Gordon and Waubra out cheering. Among the best were T Mullane, J, Rushton, S Mullane, P Dodds, J Discher and Rhys Brown. The reserves had a slower start but came through as the game progressed. R Philbey, N Searl, D Amaterstein, A McPherson, A Jarvis and J Whelan made great contributions to the game.  With the juniors the U17.5 went down to a strong Gordon team.  The U14.5 played a great game to record their first win for the season.

Looking at the netball results the senior teams all recorded strong wins, while our junior had some challenging games, going down to Gordon in all grades.

On the social side we have a wine night coming up on 31st May, The Annual Ball on the 21st June.
