Men of league join parent entity

LOCAL Men of League branch has been officially welcomed into the parent organisation.

Coffs Coast president Peter Barrett and member Eric Barnes attended the first national conference at St George Leagues Club.

“We should be proud to belong to such a professional organisation,” Barrett said.

“Chief executive Martin Cook set the scene for the night and introduced president Ron Coote and patron John Fahey with words of passion which united the 26 branches in attendance from as far as Darwin.”

Guest speakers Don Parish, Jim Hall and Graeme Murray spoke about new ideas and procedures in running events and gaining new members.

“Our race-day lunch is going great with all races sold and tickets selling rapidly in our first major event,” Barrett added.

“Head office is just as exited and all are attending.”

A Men of League meeting will be held at Sawtell RSL tomorrow at 6.45pm to finalise race day preparations.
