The Atlanta Kookaburras Annual General Meeting was held recently where the Executive and Board Members were elected for the 2013 business year. Michael Frost the President for 2012 was elected to continue his role in 2013.
Reports were presented to the meeting by several of the officers including a financial statement by Treasurer Carson Olsheski that showed the Kookas survived nearly solely on the income from player membership fees during the playing season.
The Kookaburras Annual meeting was conducted at the Whitehall Tavern in Buckhead and had maybe the lowest attendance seen in recent times. This lead to many of the official board positions passing without someone being elected to those positions.

Kookas player Daniel Searle has won the Paul Roos Medal for best player in Division 3 at the 2012 US Nationals.
Searle, who has played for the Kookas since 2009, has added this prestigious award to his shared 2012 AARFL Best & Fairest award that he won earlier in the year.
Daniel has shown great skills in every game he plays, whether it's lacing bullet-like passes to the forwards or soaring over packs for marks. His diminutive size belays the huge effect he on the Kookas games.
Well done Searley.
