Members Statement – Keilor Gift

Mr CARROLL — Craig Foley is the king of Keilor after the speedster won the 2016 Keilor Gift, while Julia Phillips is the queen having won the women’s main event known as the Billie Jo Petersen Memorial. Perfect weather conditions accompanied the running of the 67th Keilor Gift, which I have continued to sponsor and enjoy every year. On this occasion I was fortunate to present the woodchopping awards, with more than 70 axeman thrilling the crowds on this perfect balmy night.

I would like to thank the volunteers, chairman Hayden Kelly and all the committee members, with special mentions to Phil Davies for all his work in organising logistics around the event and Ken Anstey, who every year chases me for my sponsorship and who looked after me on the night. Well done Keilor Sports Club!
