Puffin Billies Oldies Carnival
Silver Lions enjoying their golden years
"Puffing Billies obviously have someone close to god, as the weather was close to perfect. Perhaps a little too hot as you old boys took the field, but no one embarrassed themselves by fainting with the heat, although the wives on the side could have done with a few shirts off boys. A little thoughtfulness goes a long way!! ??
First Game was against the prawns, and almost non eventful with our boys winning 3-1 the only thing of note to happen was Cobus and Ronald trying to make a prawn sandwich.
Second game more entertaining, with JC hotfooting it everywhere, including over a 9 year old boy, and managing to hold on to our undefeated season 2-1.
Dick of the day goes Dogwashes Brother James for running past the try line to place ball into dead zone, whilst Player of the day awarded to Micro for the best face tackle all season.
Onto other news, our carnival happens in 4 weeks time, so boys we are after donations of wine alcohol, kids toys garden tools, hotdog and hamburger rolls, salad, tom sauce and btw, did I say alcohol?? I need these to be coming in asap as most need to be wrapped. Also a call out to our bakers. Anything wives can whip up would be so appreciated!! Cakes, sausage rolls, pastries savoury and sweet. Also does anyone have a coffe machine we can borrow??
Training will be on like Donkey Kong, if only for you guys to talk about fixtures, field setup BBQ versus kitchen opening. Is there another thought on how we can fundraise on the day? Will be at home grounds from 6.15pm, so come for a drink and a chin wag.
A word to the ladies, we need your help!! Boys will be playing and filling in a lot from last years experience. We need BBQ cooks, coffee and cakes sales, raffle selling plus the pleasure of your company! Includes witty banter and a glass of wine girls!
Thanks everyone! See you on Thursday from 6.15. "
