Catrin takes top mark for local footy
YOU know the rundown.
When sporting clubs have their annual general meetings no-one's game to show up because they don't want to be elected into any position.
Rockhampton's Catrin Waye is an exception to the rule. Catrin loves committees ? Neighbourhood Watch, kindergartens and now she is the AFL Capricornia junior president for the 2006 season.
"Committees aren't that bad ? if you have a good committee,'' Catrin said.
"I like being involved.''
While welcoming the challenge Catrin is also well aware that this will be a huge learning curve.
The representative season is already in motion with the ordering of uniforms and selection of coaches and the body's first meeting is about three weeks into January.
"We have to do the budget by then,'' she said.
"The busy times are prior to the season starting.''
It also helps that Catrin is an Australian Football fan. Having lived in Queensland for most of her life, Catrin has supported Hawthorn since the 1970s.
On arriving in Rockhampton Catrin's husband Kyle started playing for Glenmore, her son Lachlan started at the club the following year and another son Mitch is also now playing.
After one year as a spectator Catrin was on duty ? starting as the club's under-12 manager and last season she was Glenmore's secretary and junior co-ordinator.
