The Adelaide Crows Fleurieu Supporters Group have had a fantastic season off the field, despite some less than desirable results by the boys on the field.
The group continues to grow and memberships for season 2020 are now open, with some excitement in the air as the Crows gear towards blooding some youth under the guidance of new senior coaching ranks.
The group's major raffle this year was a great success, with prizes donated by the Adelaide Football Club, Flo Haggerty and the Middleton Tavern.
The raffle was generously supported by the community, with all proceeds to be donated to the Kick Start For Kids Foundation, which helps children who are less fortunate enjoy holidays, while also providing clothing and breakfasts for children at school.
First prize winner was Harijs Sturitis, who received a fully signed 2019 Crows team guernsey.
The group enjoyed some great experiences over the 2019 season, including a trip to Perth on August 11, which saw 50 members travelling to see the Crows take on defending premiers West Coast, at the newly developed Optus Stadium.
Group secretary Debra Budarick said it was a hugely enjoyable trip.
"We were very loud while enjoying the game and were really proud of the way the boys performed, with the 10 point loss being such a close result, and that was without the skills and leadership of our Co-Captain Rory Sloane in the second half.
"Optus Stadium was also of interest being new, large and modern, but it is hard to compare to our Adelaide Oval - picturesque, central and surrounded by parklands. Perth was a lovely city with so much to see and enjoy.
"We had time to relax and explore many points of interest in the mild sunny conditions and got lucky with the weather."
The Adelaide Crows Fleurieu Supporters Group are now gearing up to host their annual Christmas function at the Chiton Rocks Surf lifesaving Club.
