Welcome to Red Sox  ~  We Have a Deam  ~  Don't You Forget It !

Greetings Club Members

Premier Teams:
The crunch end of the season is upon us and unfortunately some of our results have not been as good as we may have hoped. In the Premier1 Netball Grand Finals held last night, your Netball team have placed 7th after the Massey team disappointingly defaulted the game. Your premier Mens Football team have a stiff challenge to win the Western Premiership and need some favourable results from other games.   

Red Sox Idol:
The quality level for your annual Red Sox Idol event got raised another couple of notches on Saturday 28 July when a record 19 entries took to the stage and entertained the crowd. The winner was club stalwart Robbie Laird who stole the show and some hearts with his renditions of Greatest American Hero, Guess Thats Why They Call it the Blues & Sweet Caroline. But the decision went right to the wire with the jduges having to make some tough decisions in the face of some inspiring performances from both new and previous performers. Thanks to all the performers, organisers and crowd - it was a most enjoyable night !

Old Timers Day:
Then last Saturday the inaugural Old Timers Day was held with nearly 50 past members taking the opportunity to visit your Clubrooms at varying times during the day to check out the large number of photographs, match day programmes, news articles and newspapers and other memorabilia. Given the success of this event it is now planned to be repeated every year on the 1st Saturday AFTER Queens Birthday weekend. So if you know of someone who missed out, let them know and spread the word. We received a large number of donated items so we are looking for the services of a 'historian' to look after these items - interested or know someone who might be ?
Please send email to
Many thanks to our Club Bar (Dave) & Functions (Sheryl) Managers, Club Caterers (Maria & Roberto) and to CC and Nigel for the entertainment

Funny But True ! - How Fights Start:

My wife sat down on the settee next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, 'What's on TV?'
I said, 'Dust.'
And then the fight started...
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
My wife and I were sitting at a table at my school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.
My wife asked, 'Do you know her?'
'Yes,' I sighed, 'She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since.'
'My God!' says my wife, 'who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?'
And then the fight started...
