Ambassador Quest

CHFA. The Ambassador of Circular Head Football Association will be crowned at this Saturday night’s presentation evening.

The league’s five teams have been working hard all season to get results on the field, as the ambassadors have been busily raising funds behind the scenes.

The Circular Head Chronicle spoke with each ambassador to talk about the past season.

Why did you want to become Ambassador for your football club?

After a game, my husband (Matthew Korpershoek) and his friend (junior vice-presidentDonovan Lockett) asked me if I’d be interested. I didn’t really know what was entailed but it sounded like fun and also having just moved to Tasmania, I thought it would be a great way to meet people.

Major fundraisers and events:

Golf Club teas, cater for cricket dinner, trivia night, underage rage, red and blue ball and photos from the night, tea nights, raffles, and Golf Club versus Football Club day.

Highlight:

Getting to know people in the football club and in the community – by selling raffle tickets, you get their names and have a chat to them. And the kids’ disco that we did was so much fun for the kids of the community.

When Shorty (Mark Jenkins) – the club’s president – asked if I would like to be ambassador, I thought it would be an opportunity to get to know more people.

Major fundraisers and events:

Our major fundraiser and event was the black and yellow ball. There were also other fundraisers such as players selling chocolates, weekly home game raffles and an Easter and Mother’s Day raffle.

Highlight:

The black and yellow ball. Players and members all got involved, dressing up in team colours and it was a good night.

Why did you want to become Ambassador for your football club?

To be a part of the club as much as I could.

Major fundraisers and events:

Auction, tea nights, and wood raffles.

Highlight:

My highlight of the 2014 season was getting to know everyone at the TC Football Club. We had a lot of great people come through the club – hope to see it all again next year.
