Border Districts Football Club was recently invited to choose one of it’s up and coming young players – young as in someone aged 13 or 14 – to travel to Adelaide to attend a special training day clinic with the Adelaide Crows. Darcy McKenny was the talented young player that was chosen, and he and others had a great day learning some new tricks and gaining lots of knowledge, and not just about playing techniques. Crows Development Coach Tate Kaesler said that a big focus of the clinic is to give the boys real insight in to the hard work, sacrifice and dedication that’s needed to make it in the AFL. The importance of attitude and having a balanced life, and being both happy in football and in life was one of the take home messages.

OP SHOPPING OPPORTUNITES
Friday, 05 August 2016 11:32
The recycling of your unwanted clothes, shoes and bric a brac by donating them to your local Op Shop is a brilliant way to care and contribute to your community. Kingston’s Op shop has 35 volunteers and has been around for 15 years. They’ve got lots of winter bargains this time of year, and are encouraging locals and passers-through to pop in and see what’s on offer. Volunteer at the shop Margaret Rodgers, said that some people just like Op Shop shopping, and some people really need it. And in Bordertown, the Salvation Army Thrift Shop is off-loading bargains for everyone with a huge Saturday morning sale this weekend. Donating your pre-loved items and having a big clear out can be almost “cleansing”; so remember to recycle rather than send to landfill.
