- PRESIDENT'S WELCOME 2019
It’s been an enormous honour and privilege to be elected the Goats President for the 2019 season. I would like to introduce the Club Executive and Operations Committee who will lead and guide the club, see below for all appointed positions. We have all but a few spots filled, so if you want to do that little bit extra to help the club grow, feel free to get in touch with me. Volunteers are the heart of this club and every bit helps, just like the old adage, “many hands make light work” this too is true down at the Goats, be it a one off job or a season long position. I would also like to thank Marty Slabber and El Dan for their tireless efforts for the years as President and treasurer respectively.
We’ve got a massive 2019 ahead for us here at Goatland. 2019 marks 50 years of Curtin Rugby, which makes it one of the oldest sporting clubs at Curtin Uni. So the 50 year celebrations along with the proposed moved to Premier Grade, a number of our Curtin Irish ladies being named in the Western Force Women’s team and seeing the Rams running a full team (all after only 6 months in the making) are not only monumental milestones for the club but also ones that will further cement our place in WA rugby for another 50 years to come.
The off season activities have also been busy with the Knackered Goats touch team on Mondays at South Perth, last week’s Beach Touch Competition and with a number of events coming up such as today’s Goats Christmas Party, next weekend’s annual Goats on a Boat Fishing Tour (Hosted by Mindarie Charters), Busselton 10s and more! To say that we’ve got a big year ahead of us is an understatement.
As for the season coming up, we’ve got our coaches and managers in place for our three men’s team, so make sure you spread the word and do your bit to help recruit. Pre-season training will kick off in mid-February.
I look forward to seeing you at the various off season functions and at preseason training.
