Move in May is an all-inclusive Fun Run/Walk celebrating the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT). Along with heaps of entertainment and celebrities, TeamMONASH will be there on the day with a Monash marquee to show our support.
It’s looking to be a fun, bright, colourful and social activity, held in the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens on May 20, 2018 from 10am-2:30pm. Bring your friends and family along to join the largest public community event of this scale that supports and celebrates IDAHOBIT in Australia.

It’s going to be udderly outrageous.
The canteen is stocked, the hockey is stacked, the weather forecast is PRIME (for lounging around with a snag and a chilled beverage, perhaps a tad warm for stickball). SO make your way down to the farm this Saturday for a 10/10 day. The line up:
12:30pm VL1R Women vs La Trobe
2pm VL1 Women vs La Trobe
3:30pm VL1 Men vs Old Xavs

** Vic League 1 Men Won 2 – 0, not 2 – 1, my mistake!
Here is a list of things to consider before Saturday, you are welcome.
1) THE MOST IMPORTANT THING – if you do not pay rego, you will not be playing in Round 1.
To ensure everyone is covered by insurance, Monash Hockey Club will be operating on a NO PAY NO PLAY policy from Round 1. Thus, if you haven’t already, click this link and fill in your details: https://memberdesq.onesporttechnology.com/143/org
As an additional incentive, after Saturday a $50 late fee will be applied to registration payments. Contact treasurer Alex to sort out a payment plan.
2) APPLY FOR A TRANSFER – if this is your first season at Monash and you’ve previously played for another club anywhere in Australia, you need to talk to Steph (women) or Britto (men) to get that happening ASAP (i.e. right now).
3) UNIFORM – buy it at training tonight or Thursday.
4) SHIRT NUMBER – 1s and 2s, you cannot take the field for round 1 if you don’t have a shirt number. Get one. Just Hockey is the best place for this because they use an industrial iron and it will NEVER come off. While you’re there, you can check out the other goodies: https://www.justhockey.com.au/catalogue/
Do yourself and your teammates a solid by getting these things sorted by Saturday and then you’re in for smooth start to the season.
Kind reminder that Early Bird rates for membership fees will end on March 31st.
From April 1 to April 14 the standard fee applies and after April 14 there is a late fee. What we’re saying is, get in now and save unnecessarily spending money! Early Bird prices save you a solid $25, that’s a 10-week supply of two-minute noodles, a new grip for your stick, 10 sushi rolls, 4 sessions at Waverley Cinema, your coffee funds for the week, a flight to Hobart (on a good day), basically WHATEVER YOUR HEART DESIRES. Good deal huh?
It also does us a real solid by confirming the numbers we have for the season. So please get clicking, here’s the link: http://www.monashhockey.org.au/registration/
Nothing stops a hockey match. Despite heavy rain, the women’s intraclub match went ahead this morning, halting momentarily for lightening and thunder. The men’s teams played on through more rain with a drenched pitch. So. Many. Over-heads.
The weather slightly dampened the Welcome (Back) BBQ but the snags still sold and the people still socialised so we’re calling that a success! Thanks to Greater Dandenong Warriors for the competition!
Hope everyone has an enjoyable long weekend next weekend, rest up for the season kick-off in 3 weeks – BRING IT ON
