This can be discussed and modified before the kick of the next season.
The 3 top scores for the 2020 season are: Maxime Rossi 1st, Robbie peck and Troy Moore 2nd ex-aequo!
The club wants to create a "team NWSFC" who can go compete in other competitions in Perth or in other states. this will demand to find more sponsor to cover for the regos and flights.
