Thrilled to share with you a great event for a wonderful cause up at Mt Hotham this year. The Canning Cup is an annual Football game held at Omeo to raise money for the research of Motor Neurone disease and the Omeo Hospital.

Check out details on Facebook or below.

For all those who love the snow, this is a weekend not to be missed.

  • The Canning Cup will have its much anticipated return on Friday the 27th of July! This year will be bigger and better than last years event with an evening of comedy on & off the field, fundraising, past footy greats, live music, (not so) light refreshments and a bunch of “has beens” chasing a ball around a freezing omeo football ground.
    This event is for a cause that means so much to the people of Omeo, Hotham and Dinner Plain. We are raising as much as we can collectively give for the research of Motor Neurone disease and the Omeo Hospital.

    Although the girls did a great job running lots of drinks and supporting the team last year, WE WANT YOU! If you are interested in playing in the 1st netball match between the Omeo Netball Team and the Mountin’ Women, contact Lauren Anstey {Netball player manager}.

    Boys, I know it was hard going down by a few points last year, but with a game and a few extra kgs under the belt, we’ll win back the cup! I have a feeling that we could probably have 2nds this year but because we should all be in the 2nds, not everyone will get a start. An extensive bench is a must for a match of this significance. If you’re interested in playing contact Josh Thomas {DPs Ricky Nixon- Football player manager}

    A player registration fee of $50 {which is entirely donated to the cause} will get you a seat on the bus, your jumper or bib for the evening, a spot on the team, a dvd of last years match and the cherished medal for your trophy cabinet. DVDs are will also be available for purchase at the match.
    Anyone that feels like getting involved with sponsorship, donations or promotion of this event will be greatly appreciated.

    Remember this is an evening of fun, games, comedy, community spirit and it doesn’t matter who wins… As long as we win!
