The Forbes Netball Saturday competition is drawing to a close with the last round of competition to be played this Saturday. The semi-final series will start with minor semi-finals in all divisions on August 5; major semi-finals on August 12; finals on August 19 and the grand finals and annual presentations on August 26.
Presentations will be held immediately after the last grand final games. All coaches are asked to nominate a player from their team for the judging of the Edna Jenkin Memorial Junior Encouragement Award, for players aged 11 and 12 years in 2017.
Nomination forms for this award are available at the office on Saturday. The award is for a player who has shown outstanding co-operation, enthusiasm and sportsmanship throughout the season. The Chris Read Memorial award will also be presented at this time. Everyone is invited to nominate a volunteer/helper, not a committee volunteer, who has helped whenever and where ever they are required, which is what Chris used to do when she was involved with the FNA.
Chris’ family wanted to continue, and acknowledge the volunteers, who worked like their mother had done in the past. Nomination forms for this award are available at the office on Saturday. This person does not have to be a registered member of the FNA, and anyone can nominate a volunteer. The nominations must be returned by August 5. The winners will be announced at the presentations.
The 2017 Representative presentations will be held at the Forbes Services Memorial Club on Saturday night August 19. Times will be 6:30pm for 7pm, with other details to be finalised.
