Hockey season approaches with players in good wokking order



WITH only eight sleeps to go until the commencement of competition, fitness programs would be well and truly underway.

For those still fine tuning their fitness plans, it is recommended to at least exercise the brain by thinking of lots of excuses for not working out.

Long walks are also recommended, especially for those people that may annoy you.

TEAM delegates are reminded that grading forms which include the names of all players must be Yvonne Cameron or Cheryl Kinnane by tomorrow.

At your next pre-season team bonding session with the girls and a cordial or two, why not impress with your hockey trivia knowledge.

Q: Which hockey player read the athletes' oath to an audience of over four billion at the Sydney Olympic Games? A: Rechelle Hawkes, Australia's longest-serving female player.

Speaking of the Olympics, if they ever added a brain teaser competition to the Olympics, one of the puzzles could be to work out how to get those five rings apart.

MANY thanks to the clubs who have been providing information for the column.

Clubs can advertise their upcoming event/provide some special snippets etc by contacting me at hare@nor.com.au or through the phone book.

A SPEEDY recovery is wished for the Over-35s player who recently injured herself while cooking Chinese.

The doctors said that she may never be able to WOK again.

LAST week saw the final games for this competition with players having enjoyed a social and re- laxed format.
