Cherrypickers and 2yyy looking ahead to a great 2017.

We at 2yyy would  like to cherrypickersannounce 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 yyyradio@westnet.com.au.

Thanking You

Firstly we do apologise that our web site has not been kept up to date as we liked but this will all change in the near future as we look like a complete update to its format.

Their is an acting board in place at the moment who have been working overtime in order to keep the place running smoothly. This consists of Tony Gentle (formerly Vice  President) as Acting President, Dave Munnerley stepping up as Vice President, Kerry Payne is now Secretary/Treasurer. Other members include  Jenice Mason, Betty Smithers, Greg Cullen and Patrick Watson who has filled the recent vacancy left on the board.

We have been flooded with new volunteer applications at the moment and are working to fill as many vacancies on air as follows. One of our main aims is to widen the variety of shows and music genre played by the station. One prime example is the new show on Wednesday afternoon presented by Dolly and Midge that has received rave reviews since its recent inception.

Stay tuned to the website for many more posts to learn about our exciting future

2YYY Raises $1,600 for Young Crisis Accommodation Centre

In the latest fundraising effort as part of the commitment to the community, 2YYY Community Radio Station has raised $1,600 for Young Crisis Accommodation Centre.

The final figure was reached on Saturday night 29th March after a very successful 50s 60s Rock & Roll disco held at the Young Bowling Club in which many of the party goers dressed up for the occasion in 50s-50s gear making it a very colourful and fun night,
Consisting or raffles and auction the night was a success raising over $500 for the centre

The balance of the money to make the $1,600 came from donations from the many loyal supporters of 2YYY and the Community over the last 6 months plus 50% of proceeds from the 2YYY Christmas Raffle last year. The Directors of 2YYY would like to thank all who donated to this great cause and as said it didn’t matter how small the donation was it all added up to the $1,600 which was presented to Gwen Gunning for The Crisis accommodation centre By President of 2YYY Wayne Nolan.

The 2YYY Directors will at their next meeting decide on another charity to raise money for over the next six months in their adopt a charity program.
