All use of Ord Minnett Oval ceases as of Saturday to give time for ground preparation for the SUNs v Zorkos 19 Feb. As of next week training will be conducted on the school oval.
THE WORM TURNS
New glass windows at the club will improve football viewing bigtime. Glass and labour supplied by Perko's mate and long time Catter, Worm.
WRONG NIGHT SILENT NIGHT
Squiz and a couple of visitors to the coast rocked up to training Monday night. Very demanding circuit training. Squiz at the rear and guests at the head, to their credit, along with Shreevy. Silk department Luke Shreeve.
Good to see ball training on clubhouse wing - we could recognise individuals, or not, as the case may be.

Too much spare time on his hands. This owner of a degree in marketing and a highly adaptable bloke is looking for any kind of work. Please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you can assist so we can keep him away from Tas Ward's influence.
NO NAMES, NO PACK DRILL
Couple of very handy mature age and Vic. pedigreed players at training on Friday night. We have an inkling that the club itself plus the influence of signed recruits will result in their signatures. Am becoming more and more comfortable about 2017.
BROADBEACH CRICKET CLUB APPRECIATION DAY: WE CAME, WE SAW
Thanks for turning up in numbers. Good day for all sorts of reasons.
Broady won on the first innings (2/192 over 191); A ton by the footy club's adopted favourite 'Bakes' and 83 off the bat of our favourite Pohm, 'Smitty'; Smitty appreciating the vocal support; Two Logan lads going down with knees (you might've thought we were at a footy club practice match); Captain Quick in his favourite painted on shorts; Perko, GA and Tom Stevenson installing (in the heat) the new air conditioners which had been supplied by a bloke who never stops giving and coaches for zip to boot; Some nag beat off everyone's tip Global Glamour to pay around $73 to win the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas; Heard of the heartening combined efforts of club constituents and members to ensure the BBSC continues to service members and provide Marios with a second-to-none venue, particularly while their Broadbeach premises are being renovated; Read the Bully; and Heard from the horse's mouth of the progress made by the club Treasurer. All is in good hands.
VOLUNTEERING FOR AFL FIXTURE AT ORD MINNET
First up, Merry Christmas to all.
At a special time, when people are openly offering both gifts and love, we would ask that you consider offering something very special to Broadbeach AFC. Your time for a specific occasion.
We have been afforded an unbelievable opportunity in hosting a match in the 2017 AFL preseason competition – the JLT Community Series.
On Sunday February 19th, 2017, the Gold Coast Suns will take on Brisbane Lions at the home of Broadbeach AFC. This is an incredible coup for our Club!
In an event that will be televised throughout Australia on Fox Footy, this match will feature the return to Broadbeach of our 4 time Best & Fairest winner, and favourite son, Dayne ‘Tink’ Zorko.
The coordination and presentation of this event will require an army of volunteers and we seek your assistance in support by putting up your hand to help.
This call to arms is not limited to members, family and friends of just our football community, but to all ground users and the wider community. Join Stu Dalgliesh and come on down.
Please click here to understand how important it is to volunteer, at some stage, and for just a very limited time, to our Club. Or submit your interest immediately to club General manager Jason Cotter on email@example.com
Your support would be GREATLY appreciated.

Perko, what you didn't know.
Fults, 637 and the past
Noticed the Bully hopped on Fults re his Robina comeback. Reminded us of the day he went in front of Ray Hughson to become second on the all time QAFL goal kicking ladder.

TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY......THE BROADY CATS CAME OUT TO PLAY.... LET ME INTRODUCE TO YOU (Think Beatles)
2016 celebrates the twentieth anniversary of footy's holy grail - a ThreePeat in one day! In 1996, our farewell season to the Gold Coast Australian Football League, our Seniors, Ressies and Colts won flags on the hallowed turf of the Cattery. The photo in the slider above is the senior squad of the day. Click here for an expanded view with names attached. Crank up the zoom.
We have also developed a self explanatory summary of the 1996 season in four parts. In them you will find familiar and legendary names associated with the club. A good read will get your knowledge of this rare achievement up to speed for the reunion. Click here for Part I, here for Part II, here for Part III, and here for Part IV. You may need to zoom to read the newspaper clippings.
Part I references a 1996 Grand Final Day Cats Whisper. Click here for selected pages of that document with August and Sept lead-in scores, goals and best players for all three grades.
If you have any memorabilla, particularly of the Ressies and Colts, let's know and we can add to our archives. Any discrepancies between documents, archives and memories may be attributed to the Bully, alcohol or tired eyes of today's or yesteryears' generation.
Having read all that you might be interested in the document about our entry into the QAFL in 1997. This was published on the web site mid season 2015. Click here
