Eagles on the look out for members

The Collie Eagles Football Club is always looking out for new members. 

Collie Eagles Football Club committee member Ash Stewart said the club currently has 250 to 260 registered members, including 110 to 120 lifetime members.

Mr Stewart said incentives for members included the weekly membership draw, invites to bar and club functions and a vote at the annual general meeting.

He said the annual general meeting gives members the chance to have their say on issues raised, anything new or any changes.   

This week's membership draw is up to $850.  

Mr Stewart said memberships provide numerous rewards for the club in and out of the season.

"What it does for the club is financially, obviously, the more members that we get the more financially viable we are, and then the more we can put back into the footy, into the players and into the town," he said. 

"From us, money is hard to come by all the time, and I guess the more members we have we obviously make that membership fee but also, the ideas with people being members is that they continue to support the club through the season and the more often they come down, the club can make some money over the bar and that sort of thing.

"For the players, the more people there watching and supporting, the more people backing them five minutes after a win, it sort of gets them going." 

People looking become members can pay over the bar, at Collie Recreation ground, or through Collie Eagles Football Club secretary Faye Golding. 

Memberships costs include $40 for singles, $60 for couples and families, and $20 for concession throughout the season.
