Even tho the start of AARFL was pushed back to next week we are still getting together for a kick. We'll be meeting at Piedmont Park at 11am on the fields just in front of Park Tavern on the corner of 10th St and Monroe Dr. Come on down to get ready for the first AARFL matches next week. We'll probably stop in at the tavern afterwards for a drink and some lunch.
For any new players or people just interested in the club this is a great opportunity to come down and say g'day and get ansers to any questions you may have. We'll be running some light drills and getting back in to the feel of playing after time off for winter. This is preperation to help be ready for the start of the AARFL season next Saturday.
It was great to get a footy back in the hands and off the boot last week. We had a pretty good turn out to the first skills day and are looking to see more players down for round 2. The weather was warmer than expected and it was good to see everyone back on the field again. For those of us who did make it down, it was a wake up call to what we are in for shortly with the start of the season. Winter lazyness has left most of us a little out of shape and running around quickly became tough.
Congratulations from the Kookaburras to the RHHBF (Red Head Half Back Flanker) Joey Costyn on his recent marriage to the beautiful Zenobia. The happy couple were united recently in a ceremony in Athens Georgia and everyone at the Kookas wish them all the best for the years ahead.
We also look forward to many more afternoons on Joeys back deck enjoying their family hospitality and maybe a hot tub, hint hint.!!
The Kookas are pleased to see the new arrival of Cedric Olsheski. He likes listening to music and rolling over. Cedric was born Dec. 11th 2012 and weighed 6lbs 8oz. This is the first born for Carson and Julia.
We have a feeling he has already seen the officiating at a local AARFL game.....Umpire Batten?, we know that look!!
