As we fast approach mid-season the Bomber is experiencing mixed results on-field. We continue to strive for on-field success for the coming years through our pool of junior players lead by our coaching group.
Off-field we have raced ahead with many successful events that reinforce our desire to be a place for our community and a Club that people want to be part of.
On the 22nd April, we launched “First Use Of The Ball”. Written and illustrated by Paul McCarthy and Danny Menzel from DM Graphics, it captures the essence of our Club from its inception in 1866 through to present day.
On the 23rd April, we also celebrated the Club’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary by hosting an epic evening event that proved to be everything it promised and more. This season is a momentous occasion for the Kapunda Football Club and indeed the broader Australian Rules Football community.
With numbers closer to 500 in attendance the audience was treated to a well organised museum of The Bomber to promote our fine history; special messages from the likes of Bruce McAvaney and Russell Ebert; a superb video taking us back to 1866 through to present day and narrated by Kym Dillon and Tom Wren; with special release 150th mementoes including the brilliant book put together by our very own Paul McCarthy and Danny Menzel, which has set a new benchmark in sporting club records that capture the reader through story-telling and visual layout; our “1866” Red and White wines; Reidel glassware; 2016 Membership pins; through to new design merchandising to wear or display.
Sponsors and Life Members’ Day was held on the 7th May as an opportunity to show appreciation for those that give and have given so much to our Club.
There is more to come this season and for further detail check the “Upcoming Events and Games” entries included on this page.
Go The Bomber!
