We're Thrown our support Behind The Annual Finian Foundation Golf
Each year the Old Collegians
Association hold the Annual Finian
Foundation Golf Day and Social
Dinner. This year it is
scheduled for Friday 10th October
and we had decided as a club to get
behind this great day and give it
This is a wonderful chance to come
along, by yourself or with a group
of mates, and enjoy a round of golf
at the beautiful Woodlands Golf
Course. The day begins from 12 noon
with a shotgun start at 1pm. Even if
you are not a golfer, why not come
along to dinner at the Club from
All funds raised from this event
will go directly towards providing
financial support / scholarships to
families for the education of their
children in the Lasallian tradition.
The philosophy of the foundation is
to support as many families as
possible within the St Bede’s

Soppett Pavilion turns 50
The H G Soppett Pavillion extensions turn 50 this weekend. The extensions were new home and visitors change rooms, a new canteen, front entrance onto the paying side of the pavilion and a administration room.
To many at the club, Sol was an inspiration as you can read from his 2004 Hall of Fame entry:-
George ‘Sol’ Soppett
In a more than a thirty year association with the Mentone Football club, ‘Sol’ had three stints as President between 1937 and 1939, 1945 and 1946, and 1953 and 1954. Sol, a local businessman, was devoted to the Mentone cause and served on the committee and off-field in a number of other official capacities. He is regarded as one of the father figures of the club during this time and was duly awarded Life Membership. In 1964, Sol had the new Pavilion dedicated and named after him in recognition of his outstanding service to the club. [Dec.]
