Another fantastic spring day for a round of local footy. Held once again at our promising new location Garrard Landing, right next to the Chattahoochee River, everyone one was eager to get on the field and have a kick. Due to numerous people being out of town traveling and others having work and family commitments numbers were down for the day.
We ended up having a 2 team scrimmage match. Captains were picked and teams were chosen old school play ground style. After a few minutes of deep consideration the teams were set and we had a match to play.
After troubles with locking down a field and rescheduling due to many players having holiday commitments Round 2 will be THIS SATURDAY ARIL 6th, 10:00am, at a new park in Roswell. Please be there at 9:30 to help set up the field and warm up so the games can start on time. As an after game social many players are planning on meeting up and attending the free concert held in Centenial Park as part of the Final Four Celebrations. More info here.
Located off Holcomb Bridge Rd, between Spalding Dr. & Barnwell Rd, right next to the Chatahooche Rivere, we are very hopeful this park could be a great new location for both AARFL and Kookaburras matches. Enter the park through the Johns Creek Environmental Treatment Facility parking lot. Get full directions here (map link).
The 2013 Atlanta Australian Rules Football League will commence this weekend, Saturday March 16th, at Walker Park (Map Link) just off Memorial Dr, inbetween East Atlanta Village and Little Five Points. Games start at 10:00am sharp so be there a little early to warm up and help set up. The new field location is just around the corner from our old AARFL grounds, Dekalb Memorial Park.
