A big thank you must go to all the volunteers from Hockey Geelong and Hawthorn Malvern Hockey Centre for the work that has gone on behind the scenes to make the Event possible.

The Event also provided an opportunity to thank both Charlie Martin and Mike Nelson who had been long time Tournament Directors of the Women’s and Men’s Senior Country Championships. They were presented with a small token of our appreciation to thank them for their dedication to this event and regional hockey in Victoria.
