All together now...

We're a happy team in Brunei

We're the mighty fighting Sharks

We love our club and we PLAY TO WIN

Riding the bumps with a grin (in Brunei)

Come what may you'll find us striving

Teamwork is the thing that counts

All for one and one for all

Is the way we play in Brunei

The BARFL are pleased to announce the new committee for the new year. Our thanks go to the outgoing President Pat "Horndog" Horne for an outstanding performance during his tenure leading the BARFL into a new era of international success. So from all the BARFL members a big thankyou Pat.

So who are the new comittee members..?

The BARFL are pleased to announce that Peter Houlihan is now the new face and El Presidente of the BARFL and we are sure that he will continue Pat's oustanding work. Jim Baird will be "The Voice" and Whally graciously steps into the departed but not forgotten Gerschy's shoes as treasurer (and beer money counter). As I understand the three for ten rule will still apply under this new committee's agenda.

Other crucial roles will be ably filled by the following BARFL members

Cyberspace Coordinator: Brooksey
Secretary: Rutih
Social Secretary: Bike
Director of Apples: Benno
Corporate Liaison Officer: Spider Webb
Social Executives: Hodgie, Mets, Karen, Stick

A big thankyou to all who volunteered or accepted nominations when asked.

Please stay tuned for the incoming Presidents welcome note and details of next game.

Following Game 4 (summary to come soon..) there was some extraordinary developments.. Below is an excerpt from President Pat Horne

"I write formally on behalf of the BARFL. It is with a tear in my eye, yet also with a heart full of promise for the future of this great institution.

It has been noted that you have now failed to turn up to footy on the last 3 occasions and at no time did you advise the committee in advance of your pending absence. Whilst we can accept that your reasons may have been valid (except for that time you went drinking at the Orchid), your failure to keep open lines of communication with your BARFL Brothers leaves us extremely disturbed.

Therefore, at an Extraordinary General Meeting of the BARFL Executive last night, the constitution was scrutinised in fine detail and the little-known but highly-important sub-clause 23b)(ii) is now brought to bear.

Following a triple, unexplained absence it has come to pass that you, Mr Jim Baird, are now officially President Of The BARFL.

Our sincere congratulations, Jim, we are sure you will do a great job"
