Xmas 2008 - Page 1
Big Christmas cheer at Moonee ValleyChristmas came early for Moonee Valley when we held our big break-up function down
at Ormond Park on December 20.
We had strong wins over the weekend for our Seconds, Thirds, Fourths, Sixths and Ninths, some good wins in the junior grades - including our Under 16 A and Under 14 A teams both beating Doutta Stars - and teams well-placed on the ladder - including our Firsts well established in second spot.
And the break-up and monster Christmas raffle was a raging success.
Celebrating here on the night are (L-R) Back - Matt Thomas, Amit Chaudhary, Arosha Perera, Dean Jukic and Aberfeldie Park friend Mohan Wickramasinghe. Front - Evan Blythe, 100-gamer Geoff McKeown and Josh Maginness.
Moonee Valley certainly puts on a function like no other club.
We had 25 prizes in our raffle - with the $500 first prize won by 100-gamer Geoff McKeown, and the $300 won by Steven Ball.
We had a live band - Dave & Friends - who played all night, and a well-catered meal.
The oval lights were on for the kids, and the music and the atmosphere suited players, parents, partners and supporters down to the ground.
We may have had a number of our teams still having to play on the Sunday - but that was a minor inconvenience.
When you're a Club with 25 teams, sometimes you can't find a date that fits with every side.
Enjoying themselves are some of our women's team players: L-R: Maddie Stafford, Carolyn Tan, Tanya Intagliata, Jen Bishop and Adele Walker.
Relaxing outside the clubrooms: L-R: Back - Jim McKenzie and Pat Taylor.
Front: Joe Ansaldo, Sean O'Kane, George Loh, Bob Sciacchitano, Chris Micallef, Daniel Phillips and Ryan Fairclough.
At left are junior parent Mark Seers, who did a power of behind-the-scenes work to crunch the financial figures for our new training nets, and Fourths captain Dan Terzini.
