THE Rugby League International Federation has confirmed plans for a 2008 World Cup at the end of that year's domestic season.
THE 2004 Rugby League season has already begun, with a packed schedule of two Sevens tournaments, several trials matches at Henson Park, plus an earlier start and longer seasons for both the NSWRL Premier League and Jim Beam Cup competitions. This is not to mention the array of fund-raising events that are so necessary to keep this club functioning. Never before have we faced a bigger workload spread over so many months.
This is exactly where you, our members and supporters, come in - we really need your help this season, and the more people who can weigh in the more manageable the workload will be for everybody. There is a wide range of jobs needing to be done at home games at Henson Park, plus hard yards needing to be done to promote our home games. This club runs on volunteer labour, and it is in critically short supply. Without more helpers, the famous old royal blue jersey will most certainly be entombed behind a glass display case forever and a day.
We particularly need help in the following areas:
General assistance at Henson Park home games, such as helping in the canteen, gate-keeping duties; setting up the oval and packing up afterwards; cleaning up the dressing rooms (a mandatory duty as part of our lease with Marrickville Council); selling raffle tickets; plus a range of game management tasks all necessary to continue to be allowed to stage professional Rugby League matches at Henson Park.
Delivering home game flyers to hotels, clubs and community centres in the Newtown, Marrickville, Stanmore, Petersham, Tempe and Earlwood catchment areas. This is a vital and effective component of our home game operations, and the more people involved the more ground we can cover.
We are also calling for nominations for positions of Directors of both the Newtown Rugby League Football Club and our licensed club, the Jets Sports Club, to fill the places of Directors who have been forced to step down due to family and work commitments.
If you can help in any capacity in the running of your club for 2004, please contact Terry Rowney and Annie Mustow on 95500999; Glen Dwyer on 95572104 or 0402241982; or Scott Frater on 0405674357. The pay is abysmal, but you'll have the satisfaction of playing your part in keeping this famous old club alive and functioning efficiently.
