The rock n’ roll Walers are gearing up to take on the media industry-based Sailors at the annual Community Cup with the aim of rectifying last year’s defeat.
This year’s game will take place on the 2nd of August at Henson Park and I look forward to joining my fellow teammates from the Walers on the oval.
As this will be only the second time I’ve played Aussie Rules, my key performance indicator will be walking off the oval at the end of the game.
The Community Cup is always an excellent family friendly day with a number of local businesses also involved.
Entry is $5 for adults and gates open at 11 am.
All money raised goes towards Reclink, which does a great job supporting disadvantaged people in our community through providing opportunities in the arts and sport.
If you can’t make the game but are keen to support Reclink’s great work, you can also come along to the Newtown Social Club on the 31st of July.
I’m in charge of music on the night, and people can expect an emphasis on music of a similar vintage to me, plus some new songs.
