Branch report – June 2014

Dear members,

I hope you are all well.

It has been a little quiet down here in Victoria, but that will all change with the Albury/Wondonga weekend coming up soon followed by the Gala Dinner. Below is brief run down on what has been happening within the Victoria Branch over the past couple of months.

The Annual Magnificent Trivia Night was held on Saturday 10th May, although there was a low turnout for the evening, it was still a great success in its’ fundraising efforts, with $1238.00 raised on the night. Plus a father and daughter (ssp) from Cobram came down to attend their first SSPA event, which was great to see. A very big thank you goes out to Charli Worgan, Graci Lynch, Sam Millard, Rob Millard and Marie Millard for organising the night.

Victorian Branch Sports

SSPA As reported in the last Journal, the Victorian Branch were proud to announce that some of our WDG athletes were nominated for awards at the Victorian Sports Awards which were held on the 19th March. Although none of the nominees took home awards, we all felt really proud of them that they were nominated as it showed short statured athletes are being recognised and respected in their chosen field of sport.

The Boccia Titles were held recently from the 11th to 14th May in Sydney Renee Kosch competed in both team and individual events. Renee and her team mate whom she had only met that morning won one game, and then in the individual rounds, Renee won three out of four games but just missed out on the Finals by three points. Renee reported overall the Victorian team did very well – in fact so well that they received the State Award for the most games won per athlete. Congratulations Renee from all of us on your wins.

In Badminton news, there will be a Victorian Open Tournament coming up on the 25th May, which will have an SSP Division we are hoping to have some of our regular Badminton playing members compete.
