Welcome Back



















2011 Confreres
Season Launc
h

The Confreres Season
Launch will this year
incorporate the distribution
of membership packages,
previously done during
"ticket night"


Due to the generosity of
David and Elizabeth Booth,
who have again graciously
made their farm available,
the Confreres'

family
barbecue for 2011 will be
held at their Red Hill
residence on
Sunday 20th
of March commencing at
12 noon.


Food & drinks will be
provided. David will also be
introducing some new
wines to the Confreres that
will be available for
purchase.


There wi
ll be a jumping
castle for the young ones.


Please feel free to invite
any additional people along
who may be interested in
joining the Confreres.


There will also be players in
attendance.


Where:

"Kangerong" 485 Dunns
Creek Road Redhill





Player Auc
tion
Great Success


It was with a fair amount of
trepidation that the Confreres
were faced with operating the
Player Auction on their own
after 4 years of being part of
the HFC’s “Main Event”. It
was generally accepted that
the Player Auction format did
n
ot work well as part of the
“Main Event”, and we
virtually had to start again.
The biggest challenge was to
get sufficient support for the
event.


At the start of December, a
sub
-
committee was established
under the experienced hand of
Don Scott. Other memb
ers of
the Committee were Ron
Wadey, Ian Harris, Bryan
Payne, Roz Williamson, Greg
Crawford and Jeff Tighe. The
Committee met weekly until
the event.


The first “win” we had was
securing a really good venue

the MCC Members’ Dining
Room at the MCG. It w
as the
perfect setting.


The second most important
was encouraging Mercia Eva
to assist us, initially with the
production of the Player
Auction booklet, through her
company Mercia Eva Pty Ltd.
She also designed an
interactive, on
-
line booking
system. Becau
se the system
worked well, it was the first
time in the 20
-
year history of
the Confreres Player Auction
that we virtually had received
all attendance payments prior
to the event.





We were thrilled with the
attendance of 236 people
including 24 players
. We
would not have had that result
without the great support of
the HFC. Stuart Fox the Chief
Executive was outstanding
with his contribution to the
event. He literally opened all
doors for us. Our President the
Hon Jeff Kennett and the
Board were also mo
st
generous with the time (and
money).

So what does the Player
Auction mean to the
Confreres? Well it is our
biggest fundraiser and this
year it produced a net surplus
of $50,066.

If you want to see the detailed
results of the Auction go to
our website at
www.hfcconfreres.org
. We
will be updating the weekly
results so that you can trace
how much you are winning.

We are in the process of
updating our website. Please


visit the site at

and
give us some suggestions for
improving it.

In the near future you will be
able to book in your guests
for all Confreres’ events
through the web site.




Con & Freres Column


Con:

Freres, I was driv
ing
along East Link last week and
I saw this huge billboard for
ENDLESSSPAS.

Freres:

ENDLESSSPAS!
That’s the company that
Warren Anderson owns, isn’t
it? There must be money in
spas.



Con:
Have a look at that
gorgeous lady in the spa! I bet
that’s Jenny.




Freres:
No, it’s Warren’s
daughter. Knowing Warren, I
bet that he did not even pay
her for the gig!

Con:

Fair enough too. If you
saw the magnificent wedding
she had, I think she owes the
Old Man something.

Freres:
It must have cost
Warren heaps. I hope

he has
enough left over to pay his
Confreres Membership.
