Hope, however,is not enough to change our dreams andambitions into reality and results. Hardwork, dedication, concentration, applicationand highly developed team work arethe attributes that will bring thesuccess that we all so earnestly seek.The preseason practice sessions havegiven every indication that players aretaking a more serious approach to theseason ahead. The response to the morecontrolled practices, especially the fieldingexercises so expertly devised andpresented by Trevor Cobbold, has beenmost gratifying and most players haveprepared themselves well for the openingof the season. Good practice sessions areessential in the maintenance of form, thecorrection of faults and the developmentof team and Club spirit and we must allwork hard to ensure that our good startis maintained throughout the season.The acquisition to the Club of TerryDavies is certain to have a most beneficialeffect on all members. Terry's abilityto communicate easily with all playersand his obvious skill in coaching as wellas his very professional playing approachmay well be the catalyst that the Clubneeds to make 1982/83 the kind of seasonwe all are hoping for.My best wishes to all playershappy and successful season.DoniurBrookerC O M M E N T * * * * * * * * * * * * *'Cover Point 1 continues into its 5thyear of publication.

9SILVERCIRCLEAt the time of going to press, the 1982 Silver Circle is well under way,withthe ninth draw completed, and $6 000 banked. Regretfully I have to report thatof the 600 tickets (even with the extra efforts of a number of sellers) .fortyremained unsoled.With the proliferation of Silver Circles, raffles and other similar fundraisingactivities of many other social and sporting organizations (a number ofwhich operate parallel with oursj it has become more difficult to achieve ourobjective. Considerations may have to be given to the timing of operating ourSilver Circle, or alternatively some other means of fund raising in the future.In this regard members views would be appreciated.At one stage it seemed sales of 500 tickets would be unattainable, however ,the challenge was taken by some sellers and the sales reached 560. Whilst theefforts of the 50 ticket sellers has been greatly appreciated, special thanksshould go to those who took up the challenge when the pressure was on. NamelyBill Northam, Bruce Russell, Steve McDonald, Tom Porter Peter s Jane Mosley. Mypersonal thanks and appreciation go to the collectors,Bruce Kenna, Ron Farrawe-11, Steve McDonald, Paddy O'Brien and Tom Porter. Without their help managementof the Silver Circle would have been impossible.Results of weekly draws are published in The Canberra Times each Tuesday.Final Draw will be held at the Weston Creek Sports Centre on Saturday 30thOctober. Drinks and supper will be provided free to ticket holders and a smallcharge will be made for non ticket holders.The following is a list of weekly winners and sellers.WEEK 1. 23/ 7/ 82 Ticket No. 575 S.Hayes sold by C.Harris563 J.Creswell " P.Robins» 2. 30/ 7/ 82 89 P.Carnett " Don Brooker60 D.Gould P.Samara3 6/ 8/ 82 461 C.McKew P.Duffus45 G.Ratford " G.Ratford•13/ 8/ a 2 258 J.Houssenlodge B.Kensey•» 256 A.Nix " B.Kensey5 20/ 8/ 82 2 79 M.Thomas ' L.Evans456 I.Farrawell " R.Farrawell6 27/ 8/ 82 122 D.Love " B.Hulse•213 G.Moore " B.Coughlan7 3/ 9/ 82•124 C.Hunter B.Hulse• 115 B.Hammond " H.
