Help Wanted - Treasurer and VP President

Dear Members,

We are looking for more team players to help us with the running of the club.

Due to personal circumstances, we are looking for a replacement Treasurer ASAP. Full training will be provided by a local accounting business who will also provide full support for the duration of the season. We require this position to be filled by 27th May. Please note that this is an Executive committee position and critical to the success of our club.

The Team Manager Meeting will be held on Monday 4th April, 7pm at Arch Brown. It is important that all team managers attend this meeting to obtain all the information they require for the season and to be up to date with any changes from last year. 
 

Welcome day for U8 and U9

We are holding a welcome day for all U8 and U9 players at Arch Brown Reserve on Saturday 19th March at 10 am. 

This is an opportunity for our newest members to meet the committee and to hear how the club runs and to ask a question or two. This is also when you will find out what team your child is in and when training will start.

We will have some snags available (free) and soft drinks will be at bar prices. This is an alcohol free event.

Welcome to season 2016

Dear Members,

On behalf of the committee, I would like to welcome you to another season with BJFC. If you are new to the club, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you for season 2016 and I thank you for choosing BJFC.

I am excited about the upcoming season and I hope you are too. On the back of last season where we had 4 teams out of 5 bringing home the silverware, this season already looks promising.

There has been lots happening behind the scenes and I wanted to take the opportunity to give you an update.

Update on Committee for 2016

Once again, we held our AGM where we review the season from a club perspective, make recommendations for changes for the following season and of course, elect a new committee.

Like last year, we did not have enough members attend the AGM to form a quorum. We were forced to ring members to ask them to come down so we could hold the AGM.

I'm happy to announce that we have many new faces on the committee and I'm looking forward to a great 2016 season. To see your new committee, check them out on the 'About Us' tab and then 'Committee'.
