It is so good to be able to continue the tradition of our Bendigo Bank Mortlock Shield Carnival.
A Huge thank you to all the Leagues: Eastern Eyre, Great Flinders, Port Lincoln and Western Eyre, who have continued their enthusiasm for the Carnival.
We have continued with the format of each team playing each other but having no Grand Final, making Monday’s games extremely important to the final outcome
Our Saturday night function at the Lincoln Hotel is our time where we say thank you to our valued Sponsors. It will be a less formal night as we welcome and thank our Major Sponsors and Life Members. This year we will have a new Life Member from Great Flinders in Michael Curtis. We take the opportunity to congratulate Michael and thank him for his dedication and passion to Bendigo Bank Mortlock Shield, Great Flinders and football in general.
We will take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our naming rights sponsor Bendigo Bank We sincerely thank you for the support you not only give the Carnival but to your communities. It is our pleasure to work with you. Without your support we would find it extremely challenging to hold the Carnival.
Please take note of all our sponsors who display the Bendigo Bank Mortlock Shield decal at their business and support them whenever you can. All their sponsorship is extremely valued.
We take the opportunity to welcome our SANFL representatives here this weekend and a special welcome to Norwood Football Club who are here for the U15 Norwood Cup. We would love to see you back here Sunday to watch the future of Eyre Peninsula football.
We also take the opportunity to thank Norwood Football Club for the way they continue to embraced Eyre Peninsula and fought to bring a SANFL game to Port Lincoln and a thank you to West Adelaide for coming over a second time.
I would like to thank the Dragons Afloat Port Lincoln team that have manned the gates today, we also acknowledge Rotary Club of Port Lincoln and MTC dance for cleaning up each day and can collecting, this is certainly appreciated. Finally thank you our patrons for attending and supporting this great Bendigo Bank Mortlock Shield Carnival.
