ADC: 1 Week Away

We are now just over 1 week away from the 2022 TCF All Day Carnival! Excitement is building and the Carnival is coming together really nicely.
Now that we have all the team nominations in for the Carnival, we can start looking ahead to the Carnival Day itself. A special welcome to all those new and returning teams. It is great to have you all on board!

Firstly, a friendly reminder that the Pool Draw will be held tomorrow (Saturday 26 March 2022), at 1:30pm at Kearneys Spring. The Draw will be finalised this Sunday 27 March 2022, following the Pool Draw. This year we have a total of 10 teams, and will have 2 Pools, each with 5 teams each! This means that each team will have a minimum of 4 matches throughout the day.

We are also pleased to announce that we have the popular 2nd Shot Coffee Truck and Wilsonton Lions Club returning for the Carnival. Both 2nd Shot and Wilsonton Lions Club have been great friends and supporters of TCF over the years and it is great to have them back. So between these guys, we will have coffee, snacks, BBQ and cold drinks on tap! Please support them. I strongly encourage all teams to support these two great community organisations as they keep everyone well fed and caffeinated throughout the day.

It is with pleasure that we also welcome back Optus to our All Day Carnival. Optus will have their big truck with the screen on the side showing games throughout the day as well as gaming (ie FIFA) available. There’ll be balloons for the kids, and an Optus gazebo set up throughout the day. Optus are great supporters of regional football, and they are also generously donating prizes to the winning team (in conjunction with the perpetual trophy and medallions on behalf of TCF). The presence of Optus will definitely help make the All Day Carnival even more enjoyable for all players, families and friends.
Look forward to seeing you all at the Pool Draw on Saturday, and keep in mind the Carnival Draw will be released this Sunday.

2022 TCF All Day Carnival

Hi everyone,

With the 2022 TCF Season fast approaching, we have decided this year to kick off the season with the TCF ALL DAY CARNIVAL, to be held on Saturday 2 APRIL 2022.
We look forward to working with you all to try and get as many teams as possible involved in what promises to be a great day of football to kick off TCF 2022.
The format for this year’s Carnival will be largely the same as last year, with a number of pool games, followed by finals matches stretching through the entire day. Matches will be 20 minutes in duration, with multiple matches for each team throughout the day, played on smaller fields with some altered rules to make the games enjoyable. I will send out Carnival Rules and a Draw closer to the day.
I will be organising a coffee and food van for the day also, so I really encourage all teams to set up a gazebo, settle in for the day and enjoy what the day has to offer.
The TCF ALL DAY CARNIVAL will be held on Saturday 2 APRIL 2022, with the field To Be Confirmed in the coming weeks. This is less than four (4) weeks away!
We are welcoming all teams, current, past and new, to join in on the fun. There is a small fee for any teams or players not intending on playing in the full TCF Season, and I can pass on more info for any interested teams. For any team or individual intending to play in the TCF 2022 Season, the All Day Carnival is FREE and I encourage you to get your forms and fees in well before the ADC.
For now, it would greatly assist if you could advise whether you will be registering one (1), two (2) or more teams. A response by email or out through the TCF Facebook Page to register your interest is fine.
This promises to be a great day of community celebration as we come together to kick a football.
Please feel free to spread the word so we can get as many teams as possible registered for the day! If you know of any other football teams or community groups who may be interested, please let us know!

2022 ADC Volunteer Needed

An All Day Carnival on April 2 will kick off the 2022 TCF Season.

While team nominations for the best and most anticipated day of the calendar are not yet open, what WE DO NEED is a volunteer person or team to run the day.

You will be working with the Coordinator (not doing it all on your own) to make sure preparations for the day are undertaken and that the day runs smoothly.

If you would like to volunteer or know more, please comment or pm the Coordinator ASAP. Without you, this day cannot happen.

Calling All Referees!

It’s that time of year again! Preparations are being made behind the scenes ready for the biggest and best season of football imaginable.

But we can’t do it without referees overseeing the games. If you have been a referee in the past or would like to step up and do the job this year, please comment or pm the Coordinator ASAP. The more referees we have, the more teams we can allow into the Comp.

A Referee’s Meeting will be held on Saturday, February 26 at 10am at the Toowoomba Library Meeting Rooms.

Soccer Stars

Here’s an exciting program designed at the next generation of football stars. If you’d like to volunteer, get in contact with them.

Humeridge, Pandas Winners!

Perfect weather and great football marked the 2021 Season Grand Final Day.

The Sportsmanship Cup was played out between Pandas and Wolves. Exemplifying what the match was all about, Pandas loaned Wolves some players to ensure that both teams were even. Pandas took an early lead and continued to dominate the fun-filled match played in great spirits, the final score being Pandas 7, Wolves 3.

The Championship Grand Final was hotly contested between Humeridge and Raiders. Humeridge jumped to an early lead, scoring first before Raiders fought back with 2 goals before Humeridge leveled the score at 2-2. The scores remained level until the 83rd minute when the 2021 Golden Boot Winner, Caleb Hall, slotted home the match winner.

The 3-2 win for Humneridge secured a slew of trophies for Humeridge for 2021 – the Premiership and the Championship being added to their All Day Carnival win earlier in the Season.

A massive thank you to all players, teams, referees, family and spectators for a great day.

Season Celebration

All Invited!

This is a chance for all teams and players to get together and spend some time off (and on) the field together.

Free BBQ from 12:30

Come earlier to watch Wolves and Raiders battle it out for 4th spot on the Table. Kick off at 11am

Stay after and join in the Combined Team playing Humeridge in a friendly. Kick off at 1:30

See you all there!

CFFA National Titles Update

I received an email from the CFFA in relation to the National Titles in response to the current COVID situation, especially in NSW and VIC.

Due to the uncertainty of travel, most teams have had to pull out, leaving only the QLD-based teams ready and able to play. Adding in the consideration that the QLD State Titles which has already been pushed back multiple times is likely to take place around the same time, the decision has been made to cancel the National Titles this year.

This is extremely disappointing, however understandable news. I know that many were already looking forward to TCF going and some had even put their names forward for consideration for the TCF Rep Team.

This is not the end, though. Conversations between the CFFA President, Vice-President, others and the TCF Coordinator are scheduled to happen very soon to ensure that our participation in future events will occur.
