Steampacket Shake-up

With the shock resignation of Club Secretary, Tibor Kosa, the Steampackets upper echelons have been thrown into a state of disarray. More than one board member, however, is relishing this as an opportunity for much needed change.

“Frankly he was holding us back” said Adrian Dillon, who looked almost ecstatic. “It is always good to cut out the dead weight and allow some fresh blood into the old dog.”

After many hours in the board-room, drinking West Coast Coolers and watching eighties frat movies, the existing board members came to a decision on a new structure to move the club into the future.

Despite his inability to coherently communicate, or perhaps because of it, Dillon was promoted from his nominal title of Board Member to Club President.

Adrian Roberts, the club’s Manager, was more than happy to incorporate Kosa’s previous role of club Secretary into his own. “Let’s face it, I already know how to send out the emails, and I’m good at dictation.”

The club’s previous president, Kim Mazaraki – who has taken on the newly created task of Treasurer, said he wished Mr. Dillon all the best in his new role. “I hope he chokes on it. It used to be that being president meant something. Now they give it to anyone who’s willing to show a bit of leg.”

The players, on the other hand, are sceptical at best. “This is getting ridiculous” one team member was heard to say. “We’ve had more Org Structure changes than a software company.”

The game, however, must, and will, go on - every Tuesday and Friday at Steampacket Park. All are welcome, though some are more welcome than others.
