    As it stands 3 mens and 1 womens. nominations didnt go out til New Years day, and clubs are still waiting to have thier meetings and so forth, and they have til the end of the month to nominate from the 1st round of invitations. I expect plenty more to nominate in the coming weeks.

    Apparently atleast one Newcastle club is not keen to compete because of the growth in sydney teams participating. But end of the day, its pre season, and you want to test yourself against the best to see where your strengths are weaknesses are ahead of the big season openers a week or 2 later. I am confident that club will see the benefits of participation and nominate.

    Can you send me some information as we may have a women's team from Melbourne interested if there are any spots available.

    Manly has joined the mens comp. so 9 mens now, and I have had enquiries from a couple of other sources, they are likely to compete too. so numbers much better.

    Good to see us doing stuff like this without sending a single message to the club in general looking for interest. I wonder if we'll mention it at our rego day/grading day/bbq this weekend?

    Yeah, that's just me being a bit snarky on the lack of communication we've had lately within our club.

    I thnik your comp is aimed at fairly high level teams? So I'd assume it's some of the first grade women deciding to have a run, so entering as UC and then recruiting some more Canberra players for the weekend from various clubs.

    So I am preparing a draw tonight with 10 mens teams and 8 womens teams. Its down a couple of teams from last season but should be a great weekend regardless!

    MEN: Souths, Norths, West, University, Tigers (Newcastle), Gosford (Central Coast), Services Workies (Tamworth), Norwest Strikers, Manly, University of NSW (Sydney),
    WOMEN: Central, University, Oxfords (Newcastle), Maitland (Maitland Assoc), Uni of Canberra (ACT), Ryde, Glebe, Gordon North Sydney (Sydney)

    The format this year will change slightly, with teams qualifying either for CUP or PLATE finals, depending on where they finish in thier pool. This way all teams qualify for the finals day and get a good weekend of hockey.

    Unfortunately 2 teams have withdrawn this week.

    But to counter that news, Just Hockey has signed on as sponsor. so good news there!

    Attached is the draw.
