2021 AGM Minutes and President’s Report

Please see minutes here:

PRESIDENT’S REPORT 2021

To say 2020 was a strange year is wildly understating the obvious.

But I’d like to put a more positive slant on our year without hockey.

While we didn’t get a chance to run out onto the field as we love to do each week, we were able to do two other ‘R’ words – reset and recover.

Valuable time at the weekend spent with our families was another unexpected bonus. The rush died down.

But I guess the old saying ‘you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone’, also rings true and I hope you share my excitement that our 2021 season is just around the corner.

Thinking back to when the hard decision was made by the Albury-Wodonga Hockey community to ultimately cancel the season.

We, the committee, went against the flow at times with the future of the game on the Border and the long-term health of our Club firmly in the forefront of our minds. Our stance was rarely the most popular one amongst our peers but our strength as a collective committee still stands for me as a point of real pride.

So my heartfelt thanks goes to the committee and I’d like to make special mention of Sarah Boyd who has been in overdrive firing up the engine for Norths in 2021.Another ‘R’ word comes to mind – Re-engage.

What a sight it will be to see our members back out on the training track and, ultimately, the playing fields over the next few weeks.

Our junior ranks, our future stars, have been strong over the past few years,  and now we must work to re-engage those youngsters who lost out on a season of development.

We’d love to see even more of our senior players step up into coaching and mentoring roles, not just for our flourishing junior brigade, but for their peers as well.

The benefits can only be positive.

Again we show our sincere appreciation to the Northside Hotel, who have stuck by us for many years as our major sponsor and continue to support us despite a tricky year for those in the hospitality industry.

Our Bunnings barbecue last weekend was a tremendous success and we thank Lockie’s Countryside Meats and Tallangatta Bakery as well as our members and their families who volunteered.

Our success as a club is based upon the combined actions of every single person who dons the blue and white and also those on the sidelines who support us, bring our juniors to training and games and generally just help out. There’s plenty of fine people in this club and we’re thankful for your presence.

We look forward to a fun 2021 season and hope to see all Divisions represented as strongly as they were in 2019.We’ve certainly got some catching up to do!

President Norths Hockey Club.

Removal of synthetic surface on AHC1 UPDATE IMPORTANT

From HAW:

Hi all,

We are go for this weekend.  There is a little bit of rain forecast but not much and not definitely.

There is a slight change to proceedings as we have the use of a bobcat on Friday afternoon. 

Friday evening from 5pm we will be getting the sand out of the turf, rolling it and barrowing off excess sand.  This is where we need your members as per the attached instruction (although as we have a bobcat, you can reduce your number to four able bodies persons).  As this field is in Albury is particularly important that they Albury clubs show they are behind this activity as it is them that benefit the most and attendance will be noted.  We would appreciate other clubs assistance also.

Same applies to Sunday from 9am.

As much of this is dependant on what we find and how the turf comes up, it would be easiest if each club was able to give me one contact person (and their phone number) who was to coordinate attendance for their club so I could keep them appraised of what people we need here in case things change.

Thanks for your understanding.

Kind Regards
