It was reported to the members that the club has lodged 2 specific fixture requests to the NFL.
The first being a Good Friday March 25th fixture at Eltham Central Park against Greensborough. This request has the backing of the Greensborough, and hopefully will get NFL approval. The possibility of a semi twilight timeslot was also discussed, and got a very positive reaction from the meeting.
The second being a home game against Montmorency on the Saturday of the Anzac day weekend continuing the tradition between the two clubs.
