With the 2019 Invy Espy Super League event having been run and won, all that remained was to make presentations to the winners.
You will recall that in the final the POSSUMS team (comprising David Forbes, Wendy Parker, Trevor Steer, Anne Gibson, Bruce Cathie, Lianne Adamason, Neil Mackenzie and Trevor Seebeck) narrowly prevailed over the ROSELLAS team (comprising Brendan Simon, Liz Hodge, David Child, Karen Castledine-Briggs, Peter Waters, Nan Meagher, Geoff Maher, and Max Hyde), 145 points to 143. Each member of the winning team has had $40 credited to their Club Account, while each of the runners up was credited with $25. The Player of the Final was David Forbes, with 39 points, narrowly tipping out David Child on 38. David won an Inverloch Esplanade hotel gift voucher for his fine performance.
In addition to the team component of the event of Super League, like the AFL there were also awards for the best performing male and female players during the 7 regular season rounds. This year the Club lost a keen supporter of mixed events such as the Super League in the late Rod Brown. As a tribute to Rod, the club has decided to name the awards the “Brownie Awards”. The inaugural winners of the 2019 Brownie Awards were Wendy Parker and Ian Barlow. Wendy won with 18 votes from Marea Maher on 15, Liz Hodge on 14 and Dot Stubbs on 13. For the men, Ian posted 15 votes to narrowly beat Tony Roberts, Allan Kuhne and Frank Gill who each posted 14 votes.

Finally, we thank our sponsor, Dylan Clark of the Inverloch Esplanade Hotel for his generous sponsorship of the event once again. In addition I would also like to thank George Misson for his enthusiasm in rounding up the troops and helping form the teams and keep scores. We has many more women enter this year and it was largely due to George’s drive. Incidentally, it was no coincidence that one of only 2 teams with 3 women in it ended up winning. The women performed admirably in each team.
Until next year,
