Round 14 - Teams & latest news

Fri 28th of July at 1:00 pm Image

After claiming top spot with a big win over Northcote Park last week, we return to De Winton Park to take on third-placed Bundoora.


Coming into the side are Reid Brandt and James Condello, replacing Luke Joyce and Joel Kidd (injured). Note the under-19s have a bye.

While our club is making great strides on and off the field, one area we are lacking severely is quality furniture inside the De Winton Park social rooms. Once again, we had to borrow tables and chairs from our friends at Rosanna Bowls Club for last Saturday’s very successful 70thanniversary function. Apart from the inconvenience, it’s high time we had an upgrade.
Our first priority is to purchase some easy-to-store and manage tables and we are appealing to our generous sponsors, supporters and members for assistance.
Jo Esler has kindly put her hand up to coordinate the purchase of these new tables.
The tables fold like a table tennis table, are on castor wheels and will be easy to store. They cost $395 each and if you or your business care to donate you will receive a plaque with your name (or your business name) on the table. It will be a permanent reminder of your support.
If you can assist or you would like more information, call Jo on 0418 458 182 or email her on Get in quick, they are going fast!

The club has a new coffee provider for the remaining three home games. Starting tomorrow, North Code Coffee will be serving a range of beverages to satisfy your caffeine craving or you might want to try a treat such as a chocolate brownie. Their coffee cart will be located just inside the social rooms. North Code Coffee is also venturing into the expresso martini business starting next month – a great idea if you know anyone planning a Spring wedding or major function. Contact Nick on 0408 438 447 (see attached flyer).

Tonight Macleod 1 plays Heat at Mernda Central College at 9.45pm while Macleod 2 takes on West Ivanhoe also at Mernda Central College at 8.55pm.
