Western Bulldogs membership giveaway

The Nationals Member for Benalla, Bill Sykes, has two “Community Year of the Dog Club Memberships” for the Western Bulldogs to give away.

“As this year is the Chinese Year of the Dog, the Western Bulldogs are hopeful this may be a good omen for them during the 2006 football season,” Dr Sykes said.

“As part of a goodwill gesture, the Western Bulldogs have provided two club memberships for me to give away so I am inviting residents of the Benalla Electorate to write to me and tell me why they would like a membership. The best two entries will be selected.”

Mr Sykes, a former Fitzroy player said that even though he was a Lion’s supporter, he commended this gesture by the Western Bulldogs and encouraged as many people as possible to write.

“I have a soft spot for the Western Bulldogs going back to Teddy Whitten’s days but also because in 2005 they played some fantastic football. ‘Old style Bulldog’s supporters’ are the ‘old style Fitzroy Lions supporters’ – they stick with the team through good times and bad; certainly the loyalty of ‘old Fitzroy Lions supporters’ was one of the most gratifying aspects of my VFL career and ‘true blue Doggie’s supporters’ have remained loyal through some very tough times. Let’s hope that they are rewarded this year with on-field success.

“Entries must be not more than 100 words and posted to 2/55 Carrier Street, Benalla, 3672. As the football season kicks off at the end of March, entries will close at 12 noon Friday 24th March, 2006. Winners will be notified by telephone and mail,” Dr Sykes said.

Dr Sykes concluded, “Sport is a great way to participate in a healthy lifestyle whether as a player or spectator and contributes to health and well being. I look forward to receiving many entries from Bulldogs supporters”.
