Life mem­ber­ship for Wayne

Field and Game - - FGA BRANCH NEWS -

Wayne Sand­with, a long serv­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber and a Bal­larat FGA mem­ber for over 30 years, has been awarded life mem­ber­ship of the branch.

Bal­larat FGA Sec­re­tary Aaron Ed­mond­son said Wayne was al­ways at the club for work­ing bees, setup days and shoot days and the branch wanted to recog­nise his con­tri­bu­tion over many years. “He's al­ways help­ing out and is highly re­spected through­out the club and has in­tro­duced a num­ber of peo­ple into Field & Game,” he said.

Wayne said he was never a foot­baller or crick­eter and spent his youth field shoot­ing for rab­bits and foxes un­til he joined Field & Game in the late 1980s. “It is an hon­our and a priv­i­lege to be made a life mem­ber,” he said.

“It is a great sport, you have a lot of fun and meet a lot of good peo­ple.”
