Meet the Bribie Tigers Committee

Words from our President

Ask not what your club can do for you but what you can do for your club.
I’m big on teamwork- from my home where my wife and I raise our 4 Kids as a team through to any teams I coach and, in our committee, who work as a team to perform club operations. I hope that all our members feel part of one giant big team that we call the Bribie Tigers. I also love a cliché if you can’t already tell so here’s one to finish with. Success is a journey, not a destination. See you all out there.
