1971 Norths Premiership – 50th Anniversary Reunion

2021 heralds the 50th Anniversary of Norths epic grand final win against Queanbeyan (8-3) at Manuka Oval in 1971.

To commemorate this victory Uni Norths OWLS will host a lunch at The Barn on 5th June to re-live the occasion as we play Queanbeyan in a home game.

OWLS would like to invite all 1971 1st Grade players and reserves (and partners) to attend the lunch and invite all players and supporters from any year to participate as well. There will (most likely) be some

COVID restrictions in place which will limit our lunch numbers to 100.
