Hi all,

First up, well done to all our teams for last season..we had 24 of our 47 teams make the semi finals, 9 playing over the grand final weekend seeing us finish the season with 5 premiership and 4 runner up.

By now you should all have heard from your relevant coaches re teams for Summer. Round 1 is this Saturday 10 November. The fixture for the first 3 rounds are up on the Knox website, however it pays to check each week as there is often changes.

The first 6 rounds are grading. With some early regrades possible after rd 3.

Uniforms, last minute uniform distribution will continue through to Friday. Please check your drawers, have you a loan or a spare that the club can use. The silky style uniform belongs to the club..any on hand were not available to our current members as they have been out of stock for 10 years (20 seasons) we don't have any players of that era still in please return them.

I have stock of new uniforms on hand and will be following up with any long term loan uniforms out be prepared if this applies to you.

A HUGE THANK YOU to our team coordinators. It is not an easy job formulating teams, considering all requests, getting team officials etc. It shouldn't be such a thankless task..and with only 3 sleeps till round 1 we still have players dropping out and coming in, so thank you for your patience once again...roll on rd 1.

Remember always support and respect our volunteers, players, referees and opposition..the only loud vocalization should be cheering and of a positive nature.

And Enjoy the Game!
