As there was very little interest last week, we are holding a second AGM. The club needs a committee in order to run a season this year, so please show your support and put up your hands up if you can. The kids of Gove love rugby league and it would be a shame to see the season not go ahead.

Where: Gove Surfy

When: Friday 13th April at 6pm

What to bring: a smile, a positive attitude and a willingness to help!!

Look out for the blue and yellow shirts – the table will be in between the kid’s area and the bbq.

East Arnhem Soccer Club GM Wed 14th Mar

Hi all, we would like to invite parents and interested persons to our general meeting on Wednesday night 14th March 2018 at 6.30pm at Hindle Oval Soccer Clubhouse. In particular, anyone who can take over as soccer coordinator for the club. As it stands, we only have two coaches for the upcoming season. We are also desperately seeking anyone willing to assist with coaching our juniors (Full training provided). Without volunteers for any season, our club will not function and we will be forced to close for the season.

On average we get 150 juniors per year at the club playing futsal and soccer. We, like any other club can only run effectively with the help of the community and its members. So, to have your say and opportunity to assist with the development of the children in this region, please join us on Wednesday. This meeting will determine the outcome of this season 2018.
