Ladies and Family Day
We would like to thank a few individuals for their contributions in making it such a success:
  • Donna McLeod and Cheryl Clifford worked extremely hard in preparation for the day. Without their effort and dedication we would not have such a successful event
  • Club President John Clifford for his tireless work on the BBQ and not even seeing a minute of game time! No one does a better BBQ than JC, so make sure you thank him for that when you see him next
  • Volunteers Frank Van Rees, the Van Veen parents, the Newson parents and the countless other volunteers for their contribution throughout the day
  • The Ladies and Families who came out in large numbers to support our wonderful club and players on the day. We are and will be forever grateful for the contributions you make to our players and the club, to be the wonderful club that we are
  • Committee members for their hard work in preparing and packing down the day
We look forward to many more Ladies and Family Days here at the Magic, all for a fantastic charity in supporting White Ribbon Australia.
