MPS Outing: Gridiron football at Croydon

March 4 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Bash, Smash , Pass , Run, Tackle, Fly , Fall, Kick –  Touchdown. It’s all happening at the Gridiron (American football) in Springfield Avenue, Croydon on Sunday 4 March.

Come and watch the Croydon Rangers home teams take on visitors The South Eastern Predators and Northern Lady Raiders later in the afternoon. Yes in this early stage of the season the Junior men (Colts)  will be trying hard to impress their coaches to get more playing time in upcoming games.

Hard-hitting American Football is not just for men, The Women’s competition is very strong in Victoria and the Lady Rangers will be wanting to show the Northern Raiders who is Best on the Field. Those of you that attended the Gridiron outing last year will remember the bone-crunching hits, the sound of helmets hitting shoulder pads and the cheering of the crowd.

This is another chance to further your skillset for capturing action and candid head shots. Don’t forget to take shots of the umpires blowing the whistle and making signals, coaches yelling instructions and of course all the on field action. Keep an eye out for shots of  spectators cheering, balls, helmets, shoulder pads, shoes, football, Gatorade bottles, etc.

MPS Members will be permitted onto the sidelines for close up shots of all the action. However registration is essential for this privileged access. To register send your name, address and phone number no later than 18 February to outings@mpsociety.org.au.

Once again, Barend van den Hoek will be on hand to offer advice. He has prepared some very informative guidelines for shooting baseball which will be emailed to all attendees. (These photos by Barend.)
