There is going to be a slight change of scenery for the remainder of the season. While it is disappointing, the weather has not been good to us and we will be forced to move all home games to Kananook Reserve until finals. It is not an ideal situation, but we must look at the positives; we get the chance to play where we train, the ground is well drained, the facilities are fully available to us and it is close to home. It was the right decision to make to ensure that all of our players have a safe ground to play on. This is invaluable coming into finals time.
The games this week are as follows:
Seniors Vs Doveton - 2:00pm
Reserves Vs Doveton - 11:45am
Under 19s Vs Bentleigh - 9:30am
Thirds Vs Doveton - 8:45am
Netball - BYE
We are continuously working with the council to settle on a long-term solution for our ground. Right now we need to accept it and continue working to get the job done.
We call on all supporters to bring the Skye spirit with them and make a huge effort to get over to Kananook. With games being moved, we need everyone helping out as much as possible. We want our teams to prove that we can win anywhere at anytime and that our suuporters will follow our teams anywhere and cheer them to victory.
Supporters this week have extra incentive to make their way to Kananook. Not only is it 50-game milstones for Cam Petrie, Luke McGuiness and Blake Bormann, but it is the 150th senior game for Marc Frizell. "Frizz" has been at the club since day one and is the first Skye player to reach this milestone in our short history. Congratulations to Marc on this wonderful achievement. Let's make sure that everyone is around on Saturday to congratulate him and cheer the boys on to a win.
We need our supporters to get behind our social events. A reminder that we are hosting the Bizzare Gazzard at our club rooms on August 2nd. From all reports, he is a sensational hypnotist and turns sceptics into believers. Tickets are $30.00. Make sure you put your name down by visiting the bar at the club rooms.
Players are also reminded to sell their $3000 draw tickets. Another sensational night, but only if you get rid of all your tickets and pack the room. Let your buyers know that it is free beer on the night and they go into the draw to win $3000, all for a $10 ticket!
Best of luck to all sides this weekend.
