AGM Results

Following our Club AGM last week we can advise the following Committee positions for the 2014-2015 Season:

  • President – Ian Smits
  • Vice President – Peter McFerran
  • Treasurer – Cecily Mason
  • Secretary – Deb Kemp
  • Senior Chair – Ray Sandford

To all Members, we need your help to run this great club. Without members helping it will make it extremely difficult to run the club for the next season. It simply cannot be done by 5 people. 


There are 3 committee positions which we need filled as soon as possible. This is an URGENT request.  

Positions Vacant:
Registrar (overseas registration of players with BJRU, liaises with Managers re weekly scores)
Junior Chair (co-ordinates all Coaches, Managers, Medics etc)
Canteen Coordinator (orders canteen supplies and co-ordinates Canteen Roster for all teams)
These roles do not demand a lot of time. Sign on for the Season will be early February and we MUST have a Registrar and Junior Chair in place BEFORE sign on commences.

Southern Bay featured in Bayside Bulletin

You may have seen an article in the Bayside Bulletin this week concerning the floodlight project for Charlie Buckler Memorial Sports Ground. The lights are now planned for the 2014/2015 financial year however it still needs a majority vote by the council for it to happen.

Members can lobby their local councillor as we will need 6 Councillors to support the project as
there are 11 Councillors including the Mayor.
