From the President’s Desk
I don’t usually like to keep bombarding you with my rubbish but I feel at this time it’s important to stay in touch and keep contact with those around us.
The Hobart Football Club is a family club so I am playing the annoying family member hassling you for now.
Things have definitely changed since the last time I sent a message out. Obviously football hasn’t started up and in fact there’s nothing going on at all. It still seems a bit otherworldly that we won’t be playing in a fortnight. Now the AFL being postponed….
This message is more about looking out for each other than it is about updating you on any football matters; my update is that there is no update. It’s pretty tough out there for a lot of people connected to the club but I want you all to know that we are here for you. If we can help in any small way then let us know (obviously as long as we can stand 1.5 metres away from each other, there’s less than 10 of us, you supply hand sanitiser and you don’t have a cough).
When (I’m staying positive) we get up and running for the 2020 season the club will need all the support you can give. I wish to thank our sponsors who are on board and I hope they aren’t doing it too tough. Once again we will need to support them once this craziness has subsided. Members and supporters – please keep safe and healthy because we will need you in the stands once we kick off. If you haven’t bought your membership then why not do it now. Might keep you busy for a while if you are self-isolating.
Speaking of self-isolating, if you are looking for something to do you may like to read up on the AFL’s news on COVID-19. We have a link on our website that will take you to all the FAQs around this. This will be updated by the AFL and keep you all informed.
Anyway that’s enough from this annoying member. But please reach out if you need to talk, send us message or something but take care.
Look after yourselves and stay healthy.
