The weather was looking miserable and heavy rain seemed eminent and the weak stayed home in bed. The rain held off tho and after a short delay we had a 7s game underway. Every one was happy to see the Galic Football super star James Noonan make one of his sporadic/random appearances and the Bushrangers did well to have him on their team.
Back in action we're a couple of our older master players Bret Findley and Jim Batten. Surprisingly The Flying Brick was unable to secure one of his masterful goals during the game. This was speculated to be because of the brilliant efforts of Brett Findley. A little rusty to start out, Brett proved his skills and by half time was making plays and taking shots on goal in much better form.
Things looked close at half time with the Dingoes only behind by a few goals. But once again by the end of the 4th quarter one team struggled to keep it together and ended up being thrashed. For game stats follow the link....
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).
