When: 5:45pm Thursday
Where: Black Rock Football Club
As players arrive I will allocate them into groups of 4 (old/new players and jetballers – solid mix) – they will get a RULES Card and a SCORECARD. There will be prizes for best groups.
They will work around the ground in anti clockwise formation:
HOLE 1: PUTTING : on fake turf each player gets 2 putts : in the hole = 20 points
HOLE 2: HANDBALL: from inside ground they will handball to the scoreboard where numbers will be placed : add up the score
HOLE 3: 20 MTR KICK TO TARGET: 3 point scoring areas – add them up
HOLE 4: BANNANA KICK FROM BOUNDARY: 1 KICK EACH – ADD THE SCORE
HOLE 5: LONG KICK; Hit inside set markers for points
HOLE 6: HIT A WICKET: Bowl ball and get 20 points for each wicket
HOLE 7: CHIP AT THE POST: Chip from 20 mtrs – hot post and get 50 points
HOLE 8: DARTS: THROW DARTS AND ADD UP THE SCORE
HOLE 9: BASKETBALL: 20 POINTS PER SHOT AT FOUL LINE OR 40 FROM FREE THROW
Group then comes into room, hands their scorecard in at kiosk and each member gets a free drink (Beer/Wine/Soft Drink) – they then go and sit at their table number ( i.e. group one sits at table # 1 etc) where they will find a list of 10 trivia questions about the BRFC. Answer the Questions and hand them in. Imperative the group stays on their table and get to know each other – also during Justin’s talk.
Justin Charles Talk and Q&A
Justin Charles was recruited to the Footscray FC after winning an under-19s B &F. He made his debut in 1989, however in the five seasons he spent at the club until 1993, he never could consolidate a position with spots for big players of his type competitive. Terry Wheeler then coach of the Bulldogs, was willing to put him up for trade, however Charles quit the club and took a year off from football. He had played only 36 games for 24 goals with the club.
Charles then took a year off football in 1994 where he turned his hand to baseball playing minor league with Florida Marlins.
He was then picked up by Richmond in the 1994 AFL Draft and immediately impressed the club with his work ethic. He became a fairly prominent ruckman and in 1996 polled 17 Brownlow votes with Voss and Hird and joint winners on 21
Late in 1997 AFL Season, Charles became the first player to test positive to an anabolic steroid, boldenone. The AFL suspended him for 16 matches as there was not an anti-drug policy in place at the time. Charles made a return to AFL late 1998 but injury led to his retirement shortly after, finishing with 54 games and 38 goals for the tigers
Justin has seen the highs and lows of major sport and is now an accomplished speaker who is able to rebuild individuals and teams through hard times. His experiences and thoughts on how teams think and behave are interesting and intriguing.
BRFC & it’s past members would like to wish the Houston family our deepest sympathies at this sad time with the news of Andy’s recent tragic passing. Andy played for Black Rock FC for a number of years in the late 80s/ early 90s & will be remembered by all.
Attention members and local residents:
At the conclusion of the 2013 season, our home ground (Donald Macdonald Reserve) was set to receive a much needed lighting upgrade. The current lighting renders much of the ground unusuitable for night training, increasing the wear and tear on key parts of what is already a heavily worn and patchy playing surface.
We have been informed that the Bayside Council have decided to withdraw the funds needed to upgrade our lighting, as well as the facilities of other local sporting groups and given the entire fund to Sandringham FC for upgrade of the Trevor Barker Oval.
The decision to remove funding from the grass roots sporting clubs in the Bayside to benefit a professional sporting club who only have relatively few participants, along with PAID employees, is an absolute joke and strikes to the heart of the hard-working volunteers and players at the community clubs throughout Bayside.
Laurence Evans, is the Councillor that has put up this proposed change to the budget. He is a representative of the very ward that Macdonald Reserve is a part of, yet he is choosing to divert the funds outside of his own ward. We suggest that you get in contact with the two Southern Ward representatives to let your displeasure be known about this change.
Laurence Evans – Councillor -Southern Ward M: 0407 735 993 E: email@example.com
Heather Stewart – Councillor – Southern Ward – M: 0407 040 813 E: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Jets will be drawing up an official petition shortly. We ask that when distributed, as many people sign it as possible, to help show the council, that decisions such as this aren’t appreciated within the community in which they are elected to serve.
Please stay tuned to our social media and web site for more updates.
Thank you and go Jets!!
