The Mukinbudin Rams was established in 1926 and has gone on to win several premierships in that time- including bringing home the flag last year!! As we are a small, regional country town located 300km from Perth, the footy Club is an integral part of our small community and the hub of our Winter Sports. Our Saturday football home games can see up to 300 spectators, with last years grand final seeing nearly 1000 people through the gate. Despite a decline in farming population, our memberships remain strong with a combination of locals and ex locals still continuing their support for the Club. Last year saw memberships at 190- not bad for a town population of only 400!!
Value to the Community
Our football club is an integral part of our Community. Not only does it give our locals an opportunity to represent our town, but also gives our juniors the opportunity to participate and compete weekly against other towns within our region. We have a very sport orientated community with participation and encouragement to 'have a go' being its focus. We pride ourselves in that fact that the last 2 years, our senior football team fielded their side without any Perth imports- something that has become a major issue for surrounding small town Clubs. Each Saturday brings our Community together with home games having facilities for meals and entertainment. This gives our locals respite time and a chance to walk away from farming activities, even if only for the night!!
Why the funds are needed
Funds would be used for both the senior and junior teams to purchase equipment. For the juniors, we would purchase both a handball and kick target to be utilized during training sessions. Currently the kids use cones or handball and kick to adults or through goal posts for accuracy practice so purpose built targets would allow drills to be carried out much more effectively. Cost including delivery of $227.00 As for the seniors, we would purchase a mobile ice bath to be used both on game day and training sessions as required. Currently we use plastic rubbish bins which are both hard to transport to away games, and also an inappropriate size to get the maximum benefits an ice bath should give. Cost $1090.00 plus freight (due to remote location) $70.00
