Free over­whelmed by AGM sup­port

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - SPORT -

De­niliquin Rams pres­i­dent Clint Free said he was over­whelmed with the turnout at the club’s AGM on Wednes­day night.

More than 30 peo­ple at­tended and all ex­ec­u­tive po­si­tions were filled.

Free was re­turned as pres­i­dent for a sec­ond year, joined by Tim Hil­lier as the club’s new se­nior vice pres­i­dent and Chris Mitsch as the new ju­nior vice pres­i­dent.

Col McMa­hon took on the trea­surer’s role for a third year, Mel Broad­bent is the new ex­ec­u­tive sec­re­tary and Val Mead­owcroft was ap­pointed match day sec­re­tary once again.

Mea­gan Rodda is the club’s se­nior net­ball co­or­di­na­tor and An­thony Bradley the ju­nior footy de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer.

‘‘All ex­ec­u­tive po­si­tions were filled on the night, which was fan­tas­tic,’’ Free said.

‘‘We had an ex­cel­lent turnout which again shows how much sup­port there is for the club.

‘‘It was hum­bling to see so many peo­ple there (at the AGM) and we also had close to 10 apolo­gies on the night.

‘‘As I said in my pres­i­dent’s re­port, it’s not just the com­mit­tee that runs the club, there are about 200 peo­ple who vol­un­teer their time for the club through­out the year, from man­ning the bar at the Ute Muster to match day tasks and work­ing bees — it’s a team ef­fort and we have a won­der­ful team and a very wel­com­ing club.”

In his trea­surer’s re­port, McMa­hon said the club had posted a sound profit in the past 12 months and high­lighted the sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion of the club’s many spon­sors.

‘‘The fi­nan­cial re­port again shows how val­ued our spon­sors are and we can’t thank them enough for their sup­port,’’ he said.

‘‘With­out our spon­sors our club wouldn’t ex­ist.’’

Free said 13 peo­ple in at­ten­dance put their hand up to join the gen­eral com­mit­tee and many more were happy to help out on sub­com­mit­tees.

He said the club’s can­teen com­mit­tee would hold its AGM in Novem­ber.

Any­one still in­ter­ested in join­ing the com­mit­tee who couldn’t make it on the night is en­cour­aged to con­tact Free on 0417 042 775.
