Letter to All Past Players

Dear Past Players,
As a former player at the BHFNC we hope your association with us doesn’t completely diminish over time. Our club has always had a proud tradition of making former players most welcome when they visit our club for a home game at ‘The Hawka!’  We actually have a huge past player community that does support the club on a regular basis and our culture of inclusion has never been stronger. Other clubs marvel at our past player support on game day and when we reflect on its success, the answer lies in our capacity to make past players and supporters feel most welcome.

Whether through Murra’s Past Players & Supporters Group or Bomma’s Hawks Nest Coterie Group, we tend to be able to reach out to the 100’s of past players that have once donned the brown and gold jumper throughout each year and give them feedback on our proud clubs progress. This year, I’d love to be able to give more PP than ever before face to face feedback. 

After the tumultuous year of 2020, I’m reaching out to all past players to make an extra effort to get down to the club at some stage throughout season 2021. It really is like groundhog day when you do visit, the same voices, the same characters and we will make sure you enjoy the experience.

This year our playing list is as strong as it has been for many a year. Our coaching group is excited about our prospects and we really hope to build on the PP community to make the effort to re-visit our club. Our home game dates are as follows:

  • MAY 1        V   HEATHMONT
  • MAY 8        V   THE BASIN
  • MAY 22      V   RINGWOOD
  • JUNE 5      V   MULGRAVE
  • JULY 24      V   KNOX
  • AUG 7         V   SOUTH BELGRAVE

Whether you played 100 games or 2, you have all left a legacy at our club. We very much look forward to seeing you all at some stage at The Hawka in season 2021!

Greg “Flash” Hannon, Senior President, Boronia Hawks

Boronia Hawks BHFNC is moving towards a cashless system in 2021.

BRING YOUR PLASTIC CARDS PLEASE! Boronia Hawks BHFNC is moving towards a cashless system in 2021.

To help reduce the health and safety risk for our volunteers, Boronia Hawks FNC will accept plastic cards or phone payments in place of cash for most of our face-to-face sales. We will offer EFT or EFTPOS payments for Club memberships, uniforms, merchandise, social events, bar and canteen. We will continue to accept cash at the canteen, but with a strong preference for “tap and go” payments. We can still accept cash for larger payments for now, if necessary, but are moving to be a cash-free club for the season.

We hope that you all understand that this change is necessary as part of our COVID-19 protocols as we move into the new season. But it also helps us to reduce the administrative burden and personal risk for our volunteers who are responsible for the handling and banking of cash. People are used to swiping or tapping a card for food, entertainment and services nowadays and we ask for your support as we respond to community expectations.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you.
