A big thank you, to all the new and returning players, and parents for making the afternoon a success. If you missed the weigh in, there will be an opportunity this Friday the 22nd of March. Bill Cooksley (Regional Development Officer) will be at the Mercury Bay Area School from 9am onwards.

Milo Promotion Thanks to all those who turned up for breakfast, we had around 45 children chow down on the Milo breakfast. It was a great opportunity for players to meet their coaches on the day and also meet the new families who have moved to the area. A great day was had by all. - Amy
