Old Boys “Back to the Beach” Day- 07/07
It was all set but who was going to turn up? Asked for text message to confirm attendance unbelievable response ,wait for it JUST 1 well done Dan Dank. How things have change and thanks to the new world of Facebook events word spread around and before I knew there was an audience!
The weather was good , the teams were ready to play and the beer was cold, now who would turn up? Well surprises galore Perry and Frankie all the way from Kempsey. Cowboy/ Bomber from Barraba and Nathan (meat ) all the way from Dubai. The array of old polos, jerseys maybe not in tip top condition but great to see the boys wearing them with pride. About 30 in total a few extra kilos here and there not to mention those grey hairs but the camaraderie still the same .
The beer flowed the old stories were told of how good we used to be and then a tunnel was formed to clap on A Grade which was great to see. The barbecue was fired up for the boys to be fed so they could drink more and the President was assured that he would not be assauced! The day passed without incident!
Although the team has not had the good results during the year they definitely did not disappoint the extra spectators with a great effort and deserved win defeating the Tweed/Coolangatta BaaBaas 13-10.
It has been sometime since we have heard and I quote “Go you xxxxxxx Alleygators!” Not to mention the beloved song which a fine rendition was sung all together after the game with the team and the old boys. It amazes me how everyone remembers the words!!! Good to see that so many hung around just like the good old days and a few more renditions of the song were heard.
Thanks to everyone that turned up to lay the platform for next year and then the big one the following year 40years !!! Thanks to Kristy, Devo , Mick J and Gordon for helping me.
Go the beach!

Well done to 3 of our U15’s squad- Narii and Tadhg Salmon and also Luke Dines playing for the Gold Coast Cyclones U15’s. The lads played well by all accounts, losing 23-22 to Shore High School (NZ) but beating Marist College from Canberra 33-5 in Sunday’s games. Well done lads.
SCRA Holiday clinics
Last week saw us hold our July school holiday clinics at Alleygators. The weather Gods were shining on us for our normal 3 days of Rugby with U6-10’s on Monday, U11-14’s on Tuesday and the Girls only day on Wednesday. We followed this up with Yatala Rams on the Thursday, and are excited to be planning further Rugby sessions with them as they can. There were plenty of Rugby skills and drills on display with each group keen to learn and then play games at every opportunity. Special thanks to one of our U17’s Girls players- Jemma, who came down and ran with the Girls on Wednesday, and from this Girls group there’s already talk of playing Rugby next year!! We have a few video’s on our Instagram and Facebook pages, and will be updating plenty more too
Crazy July Specials
Kids Birthday Parties
Got A Kiddies Birthday Coming Up?
Not sure where to go? Come down to Alleygators! We’ll put together a Kiddies Birthday Package just for you which includes YUMMY pizzas & thirst quenching jugs of soft drink + Kids get to run around the fields & keep themselves entertained!
Volunteer of the week
Mia has been a constant among the Club’s volunteers for many years now despite her young age. Mia is always seen leading the charge to set up the fields early on a Saturday morning, no matter how cold the Winter morning. She is also the friendly face behind the BBQ serving our eager patrons. Her smile and sense of humour making up for the sausages her dad Kurtis burns so well!!! Added to this she is usually training a few young Gator retail assistants on any given morning.
She has been begging for years to be allowed to drive the Buggy when setting up & packing down the fields, but of course she has a year or two before she is old enough for that. Perhaps her most important job of all though is in keeping the rest of us organised & on track. She is never afraid to crack the whip, when her mum Kristy slips into chat mode…
It just goes to show that you are never too young, or indeed too old to volunteer at Gators!
If you’d like to lend a hand to help make our club a bit better, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org . You don’t have to do as much as Mia, but as we keep on saying every little bit helps and, ‘many hands make light work’
Straight teeth the natural way
It does not require an exhaustive study to conclude the majority of 21st century children have incorrectly developing jaws and crooked teeth. Any passing observation will highlight this and although indications of incorrect development can be obvious from as young as three years of age, the professional recommendation is almost always to delay orthodontic treatment until the child is older. Traditional orthodontic treatment often involves waiting until all the adult teeth are present, only to then extract the healthy teeth to create more room in underdeveloped jaws and mechanically forcing the teeth into straighter alignment with braces.
While these treatment techniques are an effective method of patching up juvenile orthodontic problems, they do not encourage correct natural facial development and are subject to limitations and health risks. Unless the patient commits to lifelong maintenance with permanent retainers, the teeth will inevitably return to their previous crowded positions. With shortcomings like these, the long-term benefit and viability of traditional orthodontic treatments must be questioned.
Rather than rely on treatments with obvious deficiencies and limitations, The Myobrace® System focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth. By correcting poor oral habits which restrict facial growth, Myobrace® treatment promotes natural development of the face, jaws and teeth. Treatment involves the use of removable appliances that are worn for one hour during the day and overnight while sleeping, in conjunction with a series of fun exercises designed to maximise natural facial growth.
