Masters' Trans Tasman Aussies win

Australia's 14 teams dominated the 2019 Series
The 2019 Trans-Tasman Masters Challenge played at the Gold Coast (Commonwealth Games venue) finished last Saturday with Australia winning the series – played every two years against New Zealand – making it eight championship wins in a row!
Disappointingly, the Australian Masters Hockey website only records up to Day 2 of the week-long event.
However a photo was submitted to the Newsflash of Brisbane's MHL3 Easts' goalkeeper, Peter Mann (one of two goalkeepers in the Australian O60s team) was awarded the Man of the Match by opposing team New Zealand for his "clean net" performance in the deciding 3rd game, which Australian won 3-2.
The three game results for the O60s were: Aust 2-1; NZ 2-1; Aust 3-2.
  Full results for all games (men & women) can be found HERE on the Altiusrt website.

Brisbane Masters' gifts $1000 to Townsville Hockey

In February 2019 the Brisbane Masters’ held their 2nd Annual Super Nines tournament involving teams from Brisbane and regional areas. At the Super Nines a collection was taken from players and supporters to assist the Townsville Hockey Association in the rebuilding of their playing surface and ancillary equipment after the devastating floods in early February 2019.
From profits made at the Super Nines tournament, the Brisbane Masters’ Committee has supplemented the donations from the day to make up a total of $1,000 to donate to Townsville Hockey Association.

Pictured at the O40s & O50s State Championship held in Ipswich over the May long weekend is Brisbane Masters' Treasurer Mike Williams who presented the $1,000 donation to Townsville Hockey stalwart, Gary Wicks. [Photo: Brett White].

Brisbane Masters' Scholarship Trainee Umpires in action at State Titles

Brisbane Masters' sponsored Scholarship trainee umpires Matt Weekes and James Crowhurst were part of the umpiring group that controlled all the games of the four days of competition at the O40s & O50s State Titles.
Pleasingly, this meant no players were required to umpire games.
James Crowhurst, appointed to Umpire the Final of the O40 Div 1 game, did a creditable job in a tough game, won 1-0 by Brisbane 1 v Ipswich.

Jest a moment!

A man and his wife are sitting and watching a boxing match on TV. The husband sighs and complains, “This is disappointing. It only lasted for 30 seconds!” “Good,” replied his wife. “Now you know how I always feel.”
A married couple are out one night at a dance club. There’s a guy on the dance floor giving it large: break dancing, moon walking, back flips, the works. The wife turns to her husband and says, "See that guy? Twenty years ago he proposed to me and I turned him down." The husband says, "Looks like he’s still celebrating!".
Man: "Wanna hear a joke about my penis? Oh never mind, it's too long."
Woman: "Want to hear a joke about my vagina? Never mind, you'll never get it."
