And for any budding referees, Lismore Touch will hold a Level one referees course on November 29 from 9am till 5pm.
Glenn Wooldridge and Steve Sun will present the course, and all interested players are invited to attend, including those from other affiliates.
To book, contact Jenny on 6681 1729 or see Doug in the clubhouse on Monday Night.
Teams are reminded that they should have nominated two referees to assist in the running of the competition, so this is the opportunity to get some players qualified.
