30 November 2011

In 2013, St Bernards Old Collegians Football Club will celebrate its 50th Anniversary.

In 2013, St Bernards Old Collegians Football Club will celebrate its 50th Anniversary. This is a great achievement given the Clubs modest beginnings

As part of a year of ongoing celebrations the Club is looking to publish a book in 2013 that will celebrate its first fifty years.

The book will capture and record the very essence of St Bernards through the eyes of those that helped build the Club. Unlike typical books of this type, the St Bernards Anniversary book will put into print the folklore of SBOCFC in the words of those directly and indirectly involved regardless of status and ability so that it is remembered and recalled long into the future.

We hope it will tell the stories of the great victories and losses, triumphs and challenges, joys and scandals, humour and pain, champions and tryers, coaches and the personalities over each of the club's first five decades.

With this in mind we are seeking submissions from as many people as possible. Ideally we are looking for submissions that consist of a minimum of 500 words to a maximum of approximately 3,000 words. As we have to have submissions ready for editing by April 2012, we will need your contribution to be delivered in email or Word format by 30th March, 2012. Of course, any old photos or memorabilia that will enhance the look and feel of the book will be gratefully received and returned at the appropriate time.

Submissions should be sent to Matt Mulkearns at the following email address - matthew.mulkearns@places.vic.gov.au. Also feel free to give Matt a call at any time to discuss you contribution or thoughts on how the story could be written. His contact number is 0416 269 981.

The following PDF file has some notes we have compiled that may assist you in writing your story.
