A BEARY GOOD YEAR

ALTHOUGH THE CLUBS 101 st YEAR WAS PEPPERED WITH SAD EVENTS, THE MOST RECENT BEING THE PASSING OF THE FIRST COACH OF THE BEARS ERA, DICK KELLY, ALONG WITH CLUB STALWART, SHEP, ( Funeral details in seperate article) THE CLUB POSTED ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL YEAR ON & OFF THE PADDOCK.

WITH OUR FIRST GRADE SIDE SECURING A HOME GRAND FINAL FOR THE CLUB & OUR REGGIES TAKING OUT THE MINOR & MAJOR PREMIERSHIPS THE BEARS HAD A SATISFYING 2012 & WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL BACK ON THE PADDOCK IN THE BLACK & RED IN THE CLUBS CELEBRATION YEAR ( GOLDEN JUBILEE OF THE BEARS ERA).

ONE BLACK SPOT , OF GREAT CONCERN, WAS THE CLUBS INABILITY TO FIELD AN U/16 SIDE & OUR STRUGGLE TO FULFILL OUR OBLIGATIONS IN THE U/18 COMP. ( We did , however, do that & we sincerely thank our Juniors for hanging in there...you. also, are ALL welcome back in 2013).

OFF THE PADDOCK OUR CONTINUING EFFORTS TO IMPROVE OUR FACILITIES RESULTED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF A GALLEY KITCHEN & VASTLY IMPROVED OFFICE/ADMIN FACILITIES ALONG WITH THE PURCHASE OF A NEW 2 DOOR DRINK FRIDGE & DEEP FRYER FOR THE CANTEEN.

CURRENTLY WE ARE ADDRESSING IMPROVEMENTS FOR OUR CMF CAMPERS ( who are a major psrt of our Club fund raising efforts) WITH IMPROVEMENTS TO FACILITIES .

IF WE ARE SUCCESSFUL IN A BID FOR SPORT & REC FUNDING 231 METRES OF OVAL PERIMETER FENCING WILL BE REPLACED WITH A PICKET FENCE & EXTRA SEATING FOR AROUND 250 PATRONS WILL BE INCLUDED.

WE ARE ALSO ABOUT TO COMMENCE CONSTRUCTION OF A DISABLED TOILET FACILITY, A LONG OVERDUE IMPROVEMENT, WHICH WILL ALSO ENABLE US TO APPLY FOR A FUNCTION ROOM LICENCE.

THERE IS MUCH IMPROVEMENT LEFT & NEEDED...ALL THAT IS MISSING IS THAT ELUSIVE FUNDING POT & INCREASED NUMBERS OF VOLLIES...THE LATTER IS REACHING DESPERATION POINT!!!

WE WISH EVERYBODY A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR...A SUCCESSFUL 2013...& GOOD HEALTH IN THE CLUBS JUBILEE YEAR & THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF & INVOLVEMENT IN THE NORTH TAMWORTH RUGBY LEAGUE CLUB.

STOP PRES: THIS MONTH , TO 27/12, VISITS TO THIS SITE, COMPARED TO DECEMBER 11, ARE UP AN ASTOUNDING 226% !!!!!

THAT MAKES US HAPPY BUT, MORE IMPORTANTLY, REWARDS OUR SPONSORS IN ANOTHER VALUED AVENUE OF BUSINESS PROMOTION.

WE ARE GOING TO SMASH 50,000 VISTS FOR THE YEAR & FOR THAT WE THANK EVERYBODY THAT CLICKS ON TO THIS SITE.
