Thursday Night Comp - 10 April
Posted: 3 April
Due to the unusual situation this year with Easter running into Anzac Day we have decided to schedule matches on 10 April but not on 24 April.
We realise 10 April is during the first week of the school holidays, so if this causes a major problem for any team we will allow team captains to reschedule games for this round by mutual agreement with your opposing team captain. Matches can be rescheduled to either 24 April or any other mutually agreeable day prior to the 1 May.
Any questions or concerns in relation to this matter can be directed to the M&P Committee.

Thursday Night Comp - Autumn Season Update
Posted: 2 February
The draw for the new season has now been posted on the competitions page.
Sections 3 & 4 are scheduled to start this Thursday night (6th Feb) unless it is declared a day of Total Fire Ban.
Sections 1 & 2 are scheduled to start on 13th February.
Matches will be played on the first Thursday of the school holidays (10th April) but there will be no matches on 24th April due it falling between Easter and Anzac Day.
Please note that all Woodend teams will play their home matches at Woodend this season. Hanging Rock (Section 3) will also play their homes matches at Woodend.
Also check the draw for special arrangements in relation to Riddells Creek home matches.
We will still accept an additional team for Section 4 if a club wishes to enter one before 13th Feb.
Enjoy the new season.
