This Weekend's Training, Upcoming Dates & AGM Meeting Minutes

By the sounds of it, it was a tough but fun training session last Saturday at Bendwood Park with 20 Lonestars out. The weather looks great this weekend so let's get numbers up even more and keep up the momentum in February. The Metro Combine is only 2 weeks away for those who want to beat their numbers from last year. Our first USAFL game is 6 weeks away!!

Also congrats to Ruggles' American team who just took out the Lonestars Superbowl by 1 over the Aussies on Sunday afternoon at Memorial Park Rugby field.  It was a great day out and there were some impressive arms and plays from both sides. Best on-field were Matt L and Jesse C. In a scratch match against another team there, the Lonestars gave the local Americans a towelling! Best were QB Mueller and Tom D.

This Weekend Training & Superbowl Sunday

It was a great turn up to our 2015 AGM last Saturday at The Phoenix so thank you to all that came. Minutes from the AGM and Committee positions will be communicated soon.  Don't forget to get your entries in for the 2015 Lonestar T-Shirt design/slogan competition. Prize will be a 2015 Merchandise kit-out and a $50 Phoenix voucher.

It was also a great Australia Day enjoyed with the Australian American Chamber on Sunday with many of the Lonestars there enjoying an Aussie BBQ, Cricket and Netball matches in amazing winter weather.  A big thank you to those who volunteered on the day including Blake, Mash & Zach with the Junior Footy Clinic, Ben & Kami on the BBQ, Phil & Jordan on the bar and Robbie donning the Kenny Koala suit!  It was an experience to watch the great man Fielder play in his first cricket game - albeit for the British! He also managed to bowl out DB much to the Presidents surprise.  Coach Dan showed he should maybe pull on a skirt for the Houston Shooting Stars Netball Team!  

It was great to meet some more fresh Aussie faces in town last weekend and hope to see them around the footy club soon. Welcome to Scott Cameron from Eastlake FC in NSW - sure to be a great addition to the club onfield and off.

THIS WEEKEND

SATURDAY - Training this Saturday 10.30am back at BENDWOOD PARK! Again all Ausball crew welcome as it's just fitness and basic skills training at the moment. It was great to see Whitney, Sam and Kami down the last few weeks. We will be ramping up girls footy this year so get down and show the boys a thing or two.
