FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Welcome to the website of the 'Get Real' Glenorchy District Football Club Magpies for 2016. This year is a huge one for the Club both on and off the field and for the Glenorchy community. With senior teams primed for a great season following a breakthrough and minor premiers season last year we expect that level of capability to only increase in a competitive 2016 TSL season. Off field we have the much awaited new Clubrooms becoming available this season. Watching the new 3 story GDFC Clubrooms and community hub rising from the site of our home since 1968 has been a very busy and exciting period. We will keep all members and supporters informed of the process of opening and launching these wonderful facilities over the next few months.
To confidently head into a successful season you need positive and enthusiastic commitment from a range of individuals and groups. In 2016 I am pleased to say we have that in place. I note in particular Aaron Cornelius and the coaching staff, the skilled and focused players and leadership group, a competent committed and hard-working Board, reliable and generous sponsors, tireless and committed volunteers and loyal members all eager to see Club achievement and success.
On behalf of the Club I would like to thank and acknowledge the generous support of the 2016 Senior team sponsors, Get Real, Cascade Draught , Vantage 9/11 Group and Warren Ross Accounting. We also have a range of corporate partners, minor sponsors and player sponsors back with the Club this year.They are acknowledged elsewhere on this site.
With success on field being demanded and the Club opening the best community sports facilities in Tasmania there has never been a better time to join the Club as a player, sponsor, member, volunteer, director, staff member, corporate or community partner. GDFC will be the Club of choice for people who want to be an active member of their community.
We will soon be launching a register of people who want to contribute to a strong and worthwhile community based Club when we open opportunities for volunteers to come to or return to the Club. Make sure you renew your Club membership or apply for the first time in the near future. There has never been a better time. Keep using this website, Facebook
and social media to keep updated on the Club. Register for the newsletter or come down, see the new premises and pick up a copy. We look forward to seeing more people using the great facilities at KGV.
Thanks for coming to the Club website, we hope you take up some of the opportunities on offer and we hope you get behind the GDFC "Glenorchy Magpies" in 2016.
