Time is ticking away with the Geelong National Carnival is fast approaching. Carnival dates 2nd October through to 7th October.
Rego forms are slowly coming in. The date for last year’s carnival participants to receive preference selection to a side has now expired, so it’s now open slather.
The National body will be soon looking for an idea of how many teams SA will take to the carnival, so get your rego forms in if you are thinking of going.
I’m please to say that the Ladies team is coming along well & they look like getting around 25 players.
Merchandise – if you need merchandise, I suggest you get your orders in early as Viv Sports has won the contract to supply all the merchandise for the carnival, so he will be busy.
Accommodation – there is a list of negotiated rates on the AFL Website.
Get the word out about the carnival & get those rego forms in.
