Hello Archers.

Back from holidays and back to work. A little bit hectic but I still did
not check my leave balance to see how many holidays that I have left. A
good sign.

Take care and have fun

*2015 Clubbies*

The Confederation of Australian Sport is an alliance of the 90 peak
Australian sports bodies. Its charter is to promote the concept of “sport
for all”.

*Inside Sport *is Australia’s leading sports magazine, published since
1991, with a gold plated reputation for the integrity and quality of its
journalism and writing.

*Together, CAS and **Inside Sport **have joined forces to introduce a new
set of awards that recognise the fabulous contributions made to grassroots
sport by the largely volunteer army of enthusiasts all around the country.*

There are plenty of gongs handed out to elite athletes at the pointy end of
professional competition. Not the Clubbies! The *Inside Sport *“Clubbies”
recognise the outstanding achievements of players, coaches and officials at
grassroots club level.

These awards meet the charter of CAS: to recognise and promote the benefits
of club level, grassroots sport to this nation’s health and well-being.

These aren’t your posh black-tie awards targeting the top end of town –
these are “The Clubbies”, aimed squarely at sport’s heartland.
