Lighting Carnivals

BJFC recently had a number of teams competing in various Lighting Carnivals at Karoonda and around the district.

The weekend kicked off on Friday night with a massive Auskick Lighting Carnival at Karoonda under lights.  This was a huge event, with literally hundreds of players, coaches, parents and spectators creating a massive buzz at the ground.  The carnival was a huge success, the players enjoyed a fantastic night, and the BJFC put on a great show for other clubs in the district.  If Meagan and the Auskick team can recover from putting on such a large show, the Booragoon JFC Auskick Night Lighting Carnival may become an annual fixture!

Karoonda also hosted a Year 6 carnival over the weekend.  Again, this was a huge event, with the Year 6 crew (coordinated by Paul Logothetis) covering all bases and running a very slick carnival.  Both Bulldogs Year 6 team played very well, missing the final by the smallest of margins.  Well done to everyone involved.

The Bulldogs also had multiple teams entered into Year 4, Year 5 and Year 7 carnivals elsewhere in the district, and managed to win all three carnivals.  Outstanding work to all involved – it’ll be good to see the silverware up in the Karoonda clubrooms soon!!

Vote for the Bulldogs in the BankWest Community Grants!

The Booragoon Bulldogs have been selected as a candidate in the BankWest Happy Communities, a grants program supporting local communities across Australia.  Each month the top three vote getters receive $1000, which we’ll use to renovate  our club awards, honour board and photo area in the club rooms, plus replace match day equipment (goal post padding, shelters, etc.).

BJFC Annual Quiz Night

A reminder that our main Club function for 2013 is coming up on the 29th of June – the BJFC Annual Quiz Night, supported by Dale Alcock Homes. We have changed venues this year to cope with the demand for seats from last year to a 280 people venue. The night will be held at the main function centre at the City of Melville Council Buildings and will be hosted by Karl Langdon.

We have some fantastic prizes and the social committee have been working tirelessly to guarantee a fun night should be had by all. There may a few seats left on some tables – please contact Cath Standing.
