We cordially invite you to the Lane Cove Cats 2019 Soiree.
This year we have decided to move our annual soiree to the start of the season. The aim is to get everyone together early in the year, in particular the new families to the club, and celebrate what is ahead for everyone involved with the club. And we are in no doubt that we are inline for another great season at the Lane Cove Cats.
We are excited about the re-development of the lower turf field at Blackman Park. With a completely new surface and re-aligned to create a 160m long field, we are able to run games for older age groups all day Sunday. We recently announced we would be be calling this field the Steve Chisholm Oval, after the founder of our club.
The Auskick program has gone from strength to strength, run by the Auskick Coordinator of the Year (Sydney North) Peter Beck. We also entered three teams in an Under 8 competition.
In the junior division, we are entering a new era, with the club joining forces with the North Ryde Dockers in a number of joint venture teams. Under this new strategy, we will have a much better chance of providing a club environment that caters to all age groups and skill sets the school years.
We also continued to expand our youth girls division, with the club enter a team in the first ever under 14 division. This adds to teams in the U10 and U12 age groups. The rest of the junior teams have gone from strength to strength. Encouraging for the future was the creation of three teams in the U9 age group. Overall we are on track to increase our total numbers by at least 20% this season.
We are also planning our third edition of the Sports Legends Lunch. This is now firmly entrenched as our main fundraising event for the club. Last year it raised over $12,000 and help fund new equipment and the recruitment of assistant coaches and a ground manager for 2019.
The night will include an AFL trivia quiz, which is sure to provide plenty of fun on the evening, Delicious finger food will be provided, while a private bar will be available to purchase drinks.
Tickets are $45 and can be purchased here.
