PRESIDENT’S REPORT FOR 2019
Welcome to our 2019 Christmas Dinner.
Thank you again for the opportunity to fill the role as President of the supporter group.
I have been a dealer in antique Football & Sporting cards for many years and have had a passion for the Adelaide Crows from day one. Annie and I have been looking forward to being part of the supporter group since meeting Ken & Di Pratt at a Crows function a couple of years ago.
Thanks to the Committee for their good work during the year and I look forward to working with them promoting our group within the local community and in particular, increasing membership.
We have asked our inaugural Captain, Chris McDermott to join us at some stage and although he is unavailable for our Christmas Dinner, he visits here often and we may well be able to secure him for a promotional morning in the near future.
Annie and I also have a relationship with the Chiton Rocks Surf lifesaving Club which has many Crows supporters within their ranks. The Surf club does their most important work over the summer months and are keen to have some football involvement over winter and are more than happy for us to make use of the new facilities at Chiton Rocks.
Many thanks to the Middleton Tavern for their hospitality during the season and please keep this year’s dates in your diary again for our dinner and matches again.
Our Major Guernsey Raffle was a success again thanks largely to Deb and her volunteers who hit the ground running after a late delivery of our prizes from the Crows headquarters.
Congratulations to the winners….
Greg Wager (President)
2019 Adelaide Crows Fleurieu Supporter Group “ Memorial”
We want to pay respect to our Members who sadly passed away this year – Lyall Phillips, Anne Turner, Paul Keep, and David Leak. Lyall – a staunch member of our initial Committee – his wisdom, knowledge and enthusiasm was much appreciated and we enjoyed his company. Anne Turner, David Leak and Paul Keep were very supportive in attending games, functions and trips away. With such a close friendship amongst our Fleurieu Supporter Group we will miss them dearly.
