The Management of 2yyy wish to thank everyone who has helped the station throughout the year, especially to our hard working directors, volunteers sponsors and all our valuable supporters. All of us at the station would above all like to thank our loyal listeners who keep us going on the air 24 hours per day. We will continue to strive in the New Year to improve our content and maintain the high quality of music and shows that keeps you listening.
There has been many changes in 2017 and this will continue to happen as we welcome an influx of new volunteers and a variety of new programs. We look forward to an exciting 2018.
We would like to thank sincerely our loyal sponsors and hope to bring many more on board in the New Year.
The station will be playing some great locally produced music right up to Sunday night the 24th of December. We will be crossing to the CBAA network after that until 7 am the 26th of December. This is because of some important computer maintenance during that time.
We do hope that everyone has a merry, and safe Christmas and of course a prosperous and in particular healthy New Year.

Firstly let me apologise on behalf of the Board of Management for not updating our web site in recent months. We have had may changes at the station since our AGM and we will endeavour to catch up with all the news , changes and coming events in the coming months.
Just to reiterate at our AGM the following board was elected:
Tony Gentle – President
Patrick Watkin – Vice President
Jenice Mason – Secretary
Kerry Payne – Treasurer
Other Board members – Betty Smithers, David Munnerley and Greg Cullen.
Unfortunately a couple of our hard working Committee Members have been unwell in recent months and this meant more work for the rest of the Committee.
I would like to thank all the Committee for their great effort in seeing us through this difficult period.
To our Directors that were sick lets hope that the future is bright and clear.
As well as this I thank all the volunteers for their fantastic support.
One of the main reason we have been behind with this site and other news is that our application for the renewal of our full time broadcasting licence that had to be in to ACMA by the 31/10. This involved a mountain of work and I thank everyone who helped with this. After months of toil it finally has been presented.
We have some exciting news about our sponsorship and great new shows that will be posted on this web site and Facebook as well.
Tony Gentle – President 2yyy

On Saturday the 19th November 2yyy ran a BBQ to raise funds for Can Assist Young at the Donges IGA car park in Lovell St. The BBQ raised a total of $375.00.
The board of directors would particularly thank Robert and the staff for the use of the tent, the BBQ and the supply of food for the day. We would also like to thank Graham and Kathy Marshall from Greycat Enterprises who donated the drinks.
A big thank you goes to all the volunteers who helped on the day. A special mention goes to Pat Watkins who was the main instigator and organiser for the function.
Can Assist are great organisation and all the funds raised in Young stays in Young to help cancer patients and we were very pleased to assist them.

We at 2yyy would like to announce that in 2017 we will again be broadcasting the Young Cherrypickers games in the Group Nine Rugby League Competition.
This broadcast has gone from strength to strength in the last couple of years. In 2016 the broadcast was extended to start at 1:30 pm on Sunday and we intend to continue this in 2017. Our great team of Steve Woolford, Ray Spring and Stuart Norton will again be on board. With the early start the boys organise interviews with local legends of the game and many other interesting people. We also do sideline interviews allowing on time and present a man of The Match Award every week to a Cherrypicker player win or lose.
We also try and give results of all the Group Nine games and U16, U18, League Tag and Reserve Grade games.
We will broadcast all the games from Alfred Oval and most away games. The only limitation to broadcasting the away games is lack of facilities at other locations. If we cannot do an away game we intend to take regular crosses to the studio of scores and results.
This the year the Cherrypickers have great new coach in James Woolford and besides having a lot of local talent at their disposal have brought well elsewhere including New Zealand.
We will endeavour to be more proactive on this site and bring you all the club news in the coming months leading to the season and this includes list of signings and a feature on up and coming local players.
Further to this we have a number of great sponsors for the call. Saying this we are always on the lookout for new sponsors at 2yyy and this broadcast would give your business great advertising.
If you are interested please contact us on 0263827200 or email us at email@example.com.
