A Message from Grum

Hi all,

As many of you are aware, I (along with several others) spend a lot of time running the Club.  It is full-time job on top of the one I already have.

Personalised Pavers

The Golden Grove Football Club invites all Brumbies players and supporters to buy a personalised paver to help fund the building of a new verandah looking out on the top oval at Harper's Field.  While it is true that we don't have a pitch in the top oval, part of the renovations include updating the kitchen in the clubrooms.  This wil also benefit the Brumbies.
