Club Windup and Senior Presentations

Sunday 30th September

Thank you to those who attended, even though the weather was not that inviting, it was great to see the younger players running about and enjoying the bouncy castle.  Lots of discussions took place over a delicious glass of wine.  Thank you very much Jackie and Matt Jarvis from Jarvis Estate for hosting the event.

Lions Fundraiser Weekend

The last Fundraiser of the season and what a success it was!

Firstly thank you to Hoda Bell, Lisa Tennant, Max and Craig Williams and Val Bredenkamp for their work setting up on Friday prior to the shed sale.  Thank you to Lions Margaret River for the fantastic and very tasty morning tea.  There were some interesting discussions around the table the other Lions volunteers.

The Lions support some much needed projects, they really do an amazing job! The Lions in Margaret River are also always looking for volunteers.  So if you want a change from volunteering for the hockey club, and you want to help a local charity we recommend that you team up with the Lions!

On Saturday our sausage sizzle was again run by our dream team, Bob and Phyllis Fox who were assisted Renee de Voogd and Fleur Piper.  Inside the shed and assisting with sales were Barbara and Bobbie Rothwell-Hines, Maxine and Helena Williams and in the furniture section was Craig and Rowley Williams.

Thank you to the Lions for this opportunity, a weekend of supporting each other means that the hockey club received a donation for $1,000 from the Lions for voluntary work and we topped up that following another successful sausage sizzle and cake sale.

Thanks also to the local businesses, Brumby’s and Margaret River Gourmet Meats for their support with our sausage sizzle.

Junior Players whip up a storm at the Bunbury Lightning Carnival

A team from the Margaret River Senior High School attended the Lightning Carnival in Bunbury today.  Members of the  Year 7 and 8’s team included MRHC players; Bobbie Rothwell-Hines, Helena Williams, Jay Burgess, Tom Gorta, and Isaac Chapman-Sharp.   The school team also had club support with coaching in the form or Maxine Williams, Kiri Mann and Finn Boylan.  Henry Gorta was the Umpire for the day.

Some of the Year 7 players had been introduced to hockey through the Margaret River Primary School format and spoke of their introduction to Hockey with Mark Harrison fondly.  The games were very enthusiastically played, and numbers to play hockey at this carnival are steadily increasing with players from these carnivals then keen and to learn more about playing hockey through our club.

Congratulations to all involved.
