Welcome to Beacon Hill FC
POKER NIGHT CHALLENGE
Beacon Hill and Wakehurst held their first Texas Hold'em Poker night challenge & Beacon Hill went in as the underdogs with 15 players to battle against the might of Wakehurst who were represented by 30 players.
The night was a fun night at the Belrose Hotel with a BBQ put on by Drew Benjamen of Wakehurst at the half time break. Points were awarded to the respective Clubs from the final 20 down to the winner.
As the players were whittled down to the final 10 Wakehurst had the upper hand with 7 of the final 10.
At the point of last 5 players Beacon Hill were starting to haul the points back in with 3 players still alive, and surprisingly still a slim chance of snaring the trophy.
The tension mounted as the heavily armed with poker chips Wakehurst players slowly fell to defeat with the final 3 players left being Beacon Hill players & a roar from the Beacon Hill crowd went up as they realised Beacon Hill would take the trophy with the 3 players taking the highly valued last 3 placed points.
First to fall was Mike Shelton in 3rd spot, leaving Brett Jarvis a parent from the U/16-2s and Katie Koster from the Women's AL-2s.
The final round finished with a pair of Jacks against a full house with the eventual winner being ROOKIE Katie Koster with the Aces high full house.
Congratulations to Katie Koster and to both Clubs for a fun filled night.

Fundraiser for Cerebral Palsy
On Saturday 21 June Beacon Hill Men’s Over 35’s put on a Big Community BBQ.
It was the first time BHFC 35’s had occupied Beacon Hill No1 and 2 on a Saturday afternoon.
Never let a chance go by to bring everyone together, for a good cause, the Cerebral Palsy Alliance. We had Eight BHFC O35 teams involved as well the visiting teams, Strikers Div 1, Avalon Div 3, Manly Vale Div 5 and Mosman Div 7A. We thank these clubs for getting involved, the acceptance to the invite was instantaneous!
The feature match was the Cerebral Palsy Cup between BHFC 7B and Mosman 7A. Beacon retained the Cup, with a 1-0 win in a tough contest.
Traditional Over 35’s behavioural rules were upheld on the day. After the 10 minute cooling off period post game, everyone got together and you couldn’t tell which team won or lost.
In the process of having a few beers, some snags, a few laughs, the collective Clubs raised $1,712 for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance based at Allambie Heights. Outstanding work, and proves community spirit is alive and well on the Northern Beaches.
Thank you to the helpers on the day, Otto Kersenboom, Brett Perry, Danielle Simpson + Daughter, Emma Aiello, Chilli, Richo, Al Jones, Peter Horsley, Rob Koopman, Patrick McCarthy, Steve Gravemade, Nic Townsend, Schooner and Chris Dent.
