Email below copied. As usual invitation has been sent out fairly close to the tournament so if anyone is interested please contact the ACF (happy for you to email me first at k_bonham@tassie.net.au). We'd expect anyone interested in going to organise a team for approval by the ACF, and take care of all administrative issues beyond formal approval + basic notification to the organisers of our approval decision.

Any players who might be interested in playing but are not in a position to be involved with organising a team can also contact us and we'll advise their names to anyone else involved in organising a team. If there is lots of interest a selection process may be necessary.

Kevin Bonham
Vice-President ACF.
