I’m writing this piece for my newsletter on my Air New Zealand flight as I return to Auckland having traveled on Tuesday to attend a dinner to recognise the end of John Grant’s tenure as the chairman of the Australian Rugby League Commission. The night was pretty special to acknowledge the good work the commission has achieved under the leadership of John.The room was full of rugby league dignitaries including members of the New Zealand & English rugby league and all the NRL CLUBS including the Vodafone Warriors Chairman of the board Jim Doyle it was a fantastic night for a great guy And John even mentioned Our newsletter in his speech
Last weekend, I traveled down to Rotorua for the Vodafone Warriors’ trail game against the Melbourne Storm. While in town, I had the pleasure of working with the club’s membership and community teams. We had a fantastic time visiting schools and the night markets in Rotorua but I have to say the outstanding job highlight for me was meeting so many of our diehard fans. We have some wonderful friends around the country and they are true, loyal fans.this weekend the team are on the Sunshine Coast playing the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday the game is not being televised BUT the club is trying screen on our website ?
On another note, if you’re thinking of doing Around the Bays then check out the ad in the newsletter for the Diabetes Auckland team. They are looking for people to join the team and by doing so you supporting a great cause. I must also say I’m super proud of the Vodafone Warriors club for getting behind the NZ Red Cross’ Pacific Disaster Fund in the wake of Cyclone Gita last week. Check out the ad in the newsletter for details about how by coming to the first home game you can support the fundraising effort. With all adult pre-sold tickets available for just $15 – five of which goes to charity – there’s no excuse not to be in the stands when we take on the Titans on March 17. If we all give a little, we can make a difference.
Enjoy the rest of your week and don’t forget if you wake up in the morning it’s a beautiful day.
