Commemorative Jumper for Wolf Steensen - Hi All, some of you may have known Bruce 'Wolf' Steensen, former-President of QLD for 9 years. Please read below and support if you can.
frmom: Bruce Chaplin - AFLM VicMetro President
From: Derek Delany - 17 March 2014
Subject: Wolf Steensen Commemorative Jumper
Gents, It is now some 25 days since Wolfie lost his life. Fortunately, in one respect, he was in a sound financial position, so his parents and family are keen for us to support the One Punch Can Kill (OPCK) campaign in any way we can.
As a first step in a planned program of fundraising and commemorating Wolfs life and contribution to AFL Masters, Gary Mitchell is co-ordinating a commemorative jumper for Wolf of which a photo is attached. The OPCK logo will be added to the jumper. All the jumpers will have number 8 and are sleeveless, and come in Small (90cm), Medium (95cm), Large (100cm), XL (105cm), 2XL (110cm), 3XL (115cm) and 4XL (120cm). The cost is $75 and all proceeds will be donated to OPCK.
There is only one way to order these jumpers and that is by emailing Gary at email@example.com by Sunday March 30, 2014 with your full name, Masters footy club/State (if applicable), postal address and size(s) required.
Payment can only be done electronically by depositing $75 into MAFQ, Bank of Queensland, 124060 91279617. Please use your full name as the reference.
Gary will close the list off the next day and place one order for all those that have paid. There will be no stock on hand for later orders.
It would be appreciated if you could distribute this email to your clubs straight away to maximise the orders for these jumpers. There will be a commemorative game later in the season, possibly Parrots Vs Wolfs and this jumper may be needed to get a game. The QLD President will also buy a beer to anyone at the Adelaide carnival who buys one of these jumpers. Please email Gary if you have any queries.
Thank you for your support of this worthy and relevant cause.

Sporting Pulse Training on National Registration from 7.30pm to 9pm
As the power was out at the venue the meeting was held, training was postponed. Apologies from Melbourne Club. We will let presidents/delegates know a new date ASAP.
Changes are: National Registration Scheme, players now need to register in SP before they can be added into clubs as players. This is a one off registration.
By players registering themselves, it covers insurance terms and conditions, and there are other required fields that need to be completed for purposes of AFL and their funding. The privacy act is also covered.

Club Insurance - Legal Liability - Once again ALL Clubs/Teams MUST register ASAP for Public Liability Insurance
through the JLTSport website for cover from 1Nov2013 to 13Oct2014
- The basic Club Insurance is for Club Legal Liability ONLY - 2014 VicMetro cost is $400/TEAM
- Extra Cover is available for Player Accident Insurance but this is at an extra premium (see links below)
A number of masters players have attempted to make personal injury claims and have become upset when they are told that they are not covered (by our AFLM default choice) under our policy. They blame their masters clubs and masters states for not advising them.
For those states that register their players through SportingPulse, or those states that still have a hardcopy registration form through their masters clubs, could you please ensure that in the acceptance of registration or conditions as a member for 2014 that there is included a short paragraph advising that I understand that AFL Masters national insurance coverage of my club only covers Public Liability and Directors Liability insurance and does not cover me for personal injury. Personal accident cover is available separately through each masters club but must be taken out separately by the masters club and paid direct to JLT.
Regards, Neil King AFLMasters
