Roos’ score­board sen­sa­tion

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

“We went in it, hop­ing we’d win it and sup­port the Corowa Foot­ball Net­ball Club,” Wendy told The Free Press of their names be­ing called out, which has con­trib­uted to­wards a brand new $45,000 elec­tronic score­board at John Fo­ord Oval. “It’s pretty ex­cit­ing.”

“The score­board im­proves the ameni­ties around the ground,” Jim, who played about 105 se­nior games with Corowa, added.

Club pres­i­dent Gra­ham Hosier said the club had been in­ves­ti­gat­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of a score­board for some time. “We were lucky enough that Jim and Wendy went in a com­pe­ti­tion with our lo­cal IGA store and won $10,000 for the club,” he said.

“Our Past Play­ers Group also wanted this pro­ject over the years and has con­trib­uted an amount of money and with our crop­ping pro­gram, we just about have the bal­ance.

“Our club re­ally ap­pre­ci­ates the won­der­ful do­na­tion of money from IGA. The amount has played a ma­jor part in what we’ve been want­ing to do for some time.”

You’ve got to be in it to win it, and Wendy and Jim Eyres of Corowa were hop­ing to be the win­ners of Corowa’s IGA Su­per­mar­ket $10,000 do­na­tion to an or­gan­i­sa­tion of their choice.
