 Aran is competing in Tokyo!

We wanted to let him and the rest of the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos know that we will be cheering them on from home.

That’s why, during our training sessions we made this quick little video sending them some “Best of luck – Margaret River Vibes”

Here is the link to our  video “Local Hockey Legend at the Olympics”  it’s also on YouTube.  It’s also on our Club Facebook Page and on Instagram.

Review from Scarred for Life Match and Club Open Day

What a beautiful day it turned out to be for our annual Scarred For Life Memorial Hockey Match and Club Open Day! Not a cloud in the clear blue sky! And what a fantastic turn out it was from members and friends of the MRHC. 
We started off at 10am with coffee and cakes followed by a guided discussion about mental health by Mike Dyson from Good Blokes Co
By 1pm we were into the sausage sizzle and Foxy’s brisket which was just so amazingly delicious many went back for more.
 
The Memorial Match was played to honour the lives of Ken Howes, Wes Battese and Stuart “Scar” Campbell with club statesman Wally Zalewski as the umpire. It was a fierce but jovial game in the searing heat won by The Breakers -sponsored by Cowaramup Pharmacy.  Their opposition The Settlers – sponsored by MRCES (Margaret River Cowaramup Electrical Services) played well.
The precursor to the game was a circle of remembrance where poems were recited in memory of those we were honouring. It was an experience in connection and kindness and recognition of those passed.
 
Jeremy and Claire from the Cowaramup Brewing Co, put on a keg to help fundraising and there were wines and softies flowing as well. 
 
Raffle prizes were donated by local businesses including:
100% of funds raised on the day go towards mental health initiatives in the club. We sponsor 1 junior player to attend Zero2Hero Camp and two Senior Male club members  to attend a Good Blokes Co Retreat. Both initiatives focus on positive mental health care. 
 
The FREE bouncy castle for the kids was going non stop all day!
Little Hallie Storey picked up the Simon Orchard signed hockey stick for being Best on Ground in the Memorial Match. 
By the end of the day, everyone helped pack up and we went home tired but happy to have enjoyed a soul feeding day of friendship, connection, and commemoration. We’ll do it all again next year. 
A total of $3,000 was raised and this will be spent on sending one junior player and 2 male senior player to the above mentioned very worthwhile Camp and Retreat. Our hearts are full. 
Thank you for your support all those who came along.

Review from 2020 and Club Wind-up

2020 was an extremely successful year for Margaret River Hockey – the Year 6-8 Girls’, A2 Women’s’ and Year 9-12 Boys’ were named runners-ups while the Year 6-8 boys were crowned premiers. Not only that, but the A2 men finished in bronze and a great influx of new players joined the club in the Primary school age group.

The end of season club wind-up and awards event at Cowaramup Brewing Co, was well attended and Club President Colin Fox  said  “I’m tremendously proud of the club, despite having to work around the issues of COVID-19 restrictions, with great coaches, managers and an awesome committee, plus all of the players, we have made it a memorable season, obviously, it was a shorter playing season with a lot more challenges than any year we’ve seen. As the outgoing President, I’d like to thank you all very sincerely for making this happen. That kind of teamwork is the only way the club will continue to improve”.
