A message from your new President ….

As many of you are now aware I have accepted the role of President for 2017.

I’d like to firstly thank Joe, Beaser, everyone who has been involved during the past few years and those who are continuing to be involved.

Now that Christmas and the New Year are over, it’s time to get cracking for the Bears in 2017!

A lot of work has already been done behind the scenes and it’s great to see the energy and enthusiasm from new committee members, coaches, support teams and players from all teams.

Most of you who have been to the club in the past few years have probably been served by me, either at the canteen or behind the bar and I’m looking forward to serving the club in a different way this year. If you don’t know me my nickname was Hendo, long before “you know who”, in fact most of my family answers to Hendo. I’m looking forward to meeting the playing group, coaches and their support teams, once training starts again.

To family and friends, I welcome your involvement, so please don’t hesitate to get in-touch. I myself came to the club as a parent and have thoroughly enjoyed being involved.

The focus of the new committee over the next few months will be putting in pace all the things we need for a successful 2017, this includes sponsorship, so if you have any ideas please let us know.

I’d like to reiterate, how well this club is served by the committee, coaches, sponsors and other supporters. It’s great to see their continuing involvement and we all appreciate the commitment of newly retired players who will help keep this club strong into the future.
