Sydney Airport Jets RLFC - Official
2005 Season Launch, Wednesday, March 9th.

To All Newtown Jets Members and Supporters,

The Newtown Rugby League Football Club ? celebrating 97 years of passion!

The Newtown Rugby League Football Club will be holding its official Fred Daly Memorial 2005 season launch at the Petersham RSL Club Auditorium (Regent Street, Petersham) on the evening of Wednesday, March 9th, 2005 at 7.00pm for 7.30pm.

This season?s official launch takes place right in the very heartland of our historic old club?s traditional support base, and the occasion also serves to commemorate the achievements of a true giant of the Newtown RLFC and Australian national politics, the late Fred Daly MHR.

Once again an impressive program of speakers has been arranged, including the one and only Tom Raudonikis (the man who practically invented the words passion and commitment), former top flight NRL, State of Origin and Test referee Bill Harrigan, and the charismatic Managing Director of one of Australia?s most iconic business organisations, Jason Lea from the famous Darrell Lea Chocolates company. Legendary Sydney DJ Ron E. Sparks will again compere the night?s proceedings.

There will be many other distinguished guests in attendance, their presence in itself paying tribute to the remarkable fighting qualities and resilience of Australia?s oldest Rugby League club. While Newtown might not be a member of the NRL, it is unarguably the best known and most publicised Rugby League club outside of the prestigious national competition.

Our own Club Patron and larger than life Australian identity John Singleton believes that Newtown?s story of survival exemplifies much of the best that there is to be found in the Australian national character. How fitting it is that the official launch for this valiant club?s 98th season in Rugby League football should take place in the beautifully appointed premises of one of our longest-standing and well-regarded business sponsors, and right in the geographic centre of the Federal electorate that Fred Daly represented with distinction for more than thirty years!

The cost per person is $125.00 (incl. GST) or $1250.00 (incl. GST) for a table of ten, including first class meal and drinks. Dress requirements: Lounge Suit.
