After more than a year since their last WASPA in February 2020, it was great for the Western Flickers to be able to host their 43rd edition on a Good Friday holiday.
The round robin competition took place at the club's new base venue - the Louis Joel Arts and Community Centre. Just a stones throw away from the Altona town village and its scenic beach, the centre is a fantastic venue with all the modern amenities and then some. Local players are definitely looking forward to hosting more WASPA / FISTF events here soon!
6 Pelicans took part in WFW43 and it was great to be flicking again. Everyone was naturally a bit rusty in the beginning, but before long it was just like we were never away. Cracking goals were being scored and the oohs and aahs of near misses mixed with laughter from friendly banter. It felt so good to be back!
Eventual winner was Benny who pipped Adrian Connolly in the last round after being neck and neck all day. Special credit to young Josh Tey who showed excellent progress in his game - definitely one to watch for the future!
