Pan­thers ready to ap­point new com­mit­tee at AGM

The Biloela Pan­thers are on the look out for a pres­i­dent, sec­re­tary, trea­surer, reg­is­trar and coaches for the 2019 sea­son.

Ap­point­ing these new of­fi­cials is the com­mit­tee’s top pri­or­ity as the club pre­pares for its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing, to be held at the Ho­tel Set­tlers’ func­tion room on Fri­day, Novem­ber 2, from 6pm.

Ded­i­cated vol­un­teers are the back­bone of coun­try rugby league and it’s no se­cret that clubs and com­pe­ti­tions across ru­ral Queens­land are do­ing it tough.

The sport re­lies on these hard-work­ing in­di­vid­u­als and it needs these peo­ple now more than ever.

Take Gra­ham Flen­nady, for ex­am­ple, who was honoured as Biloela’s vol­un­teer of the year at the Rock­hamp­ton com­pe­ti­tion’s end-of-sea­son awards.

It’s thank­less work but Flen­nady does it tire­lessly, giv­ing up his time to do the grounds keep­ing, first aid, run wa­ter and hang around af­ter games to clean up – what­ever needs to be done.

The harsh re­al­ity of the sit­u­a­tion bush footy finds it­self in is that with­out peo­ple like him will­ing to go above and be­yond, more coun­try clubs and com­pe­ti­tions will fold.

A Pan­thers of­fi­cial has ad­vised that all play­ers are re­quired to at­tend and all com­mu­nity mem­bers and league lovers are in­vited to come along.

You can regis­ter your in­ter­est via the club’s Face­book page or by con­tact­ing sec­re­tary Jacy Bar­ron on 0407 757 932.
