As the New Year continues to fly by, it’s time to turn our attentions to Korfball South Australia’s annual one-day outdoor lightning carnival, the Summer Classic. Once again, the competition will be held at the Marion Sports & Community Club. A map of the venue location can be found on the Summer Classic event page. The competition will be held on Saturday, the 24th of February, and will kick off at 10am.
The competition is played on grass with standard Korfball rules (2 divisions, 8 players per team), but shortened matches. This is not explicitly a club based competition, although clubs are more than welcome to enter teams. Many clubs will use this event as part of pre-season, but non-club-based are encouraged to enter as well. In the interests of parity, no more than four State League A graders (as per 2017 KSA State League finals qualifications) may be on court at any one time, although a team may contain additional players as substitutions. Team nominations are $50, no more to pay, and nominations and payments are due no later than February 9. Once a team is nominated, payment details will be emailed to the designated contact person. A team nomination form is below. If entering more than one team, we do request you fill out a form for each team.
As has been the case in past years, a post-tournament dinner is being organised, to be held at the same venue. Tickets for the dinner are $5 per person, with the tickets redeemable for full face value at the bar or bistro on the night. Food will be available from the standard bistro menu, with vegetarian and gluten free options available. Along with the team nomination, we do ask for an estimated number of dinner attendees to assist with booking. Final dinner numbers and payment is required by February 16.
In addition, if any teams, clubs or individuals are interested in running a BBQ or other food or drink stall, please advise on the form below. No alcohol may be sold or provided due to licencing restrictions. Any stall applications will be discussed by the KSA committee, and approval (or otherwise) given by February 16. Stalls are the responsibility of the team/club/indiviudal (organisation, risk management, financial etc), but may provide a fundraising opportunity for those interested.
