I’ll confess, I haven’t always been the most diligent of Mother’s Day observers. It wasn’t helped by a Mum who always refused to make a fuss and actively discouraged any show of celebration. All she ever asked for was a card which had to be written by my sister and I. No printed messages from Hallmark allowed.
As with a lot of things, age forces you to reflect and I’ve pondered Mum’s reluctance. I suspect she was making several points, perhaps one being that it shouldn’t take a ‘special day’ to tell someone you love how you feel, what you mean to them and how thankful you are they’re in your life. Maybe Mother’s Day is a good reminder of that for anyone in your life? Maybe you shouldn’t need reminding. I know I do.
So as I read through the match reports, I contemplated the countless hours and days all our players mother’s had put into their lives, all the sport they’d driven to, the injuries they’d nursed, the stories they’d listened to and wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you. To a woman and man, you’ve help create the outstanding people we have around our club, that make it such a special place and we’re forever grateful.
On that note, it would be wonderful to see as many Mum’s (and Dad’s and anyone who wants to come) at this Saturday’s Wellers Brunch. Things will kick off at 11am with fresh coffee and great food and we’ll ease into the afternoon with some good wines and generous cheese boards. It would be sensational to see everyone. Details below.
We’re excited about our first Super Saturday at GBO.
The brunch starts at 11am with fresh coffee and great food and we’ll open the bar, serve cheese platters and nibbles alongside the brunch fare and have a great afternoon no doubt. I’ll be giving a brief update on the Club and will introduce some of our Men’s and Women’s players as well.
Photos for the History webpage for our 60 Seasons celebrations….As some of you may have seen, our new website has a dedicated History page found under The Club. We are looking to populate this with lots of photos from across the decades and we need your help.
If you have old photos we’d love to see them. Taking a photo on your mobile and sending them via email to our Webmaster, Craig Sampson - Craig@tallulah.net.auis the easiest way.
