I issue a challenge to all Silvertail members to start sending emails to everyone you know in an effort to have as many Manly & Rugby League fans as possible sign the petition to upgrade brookie oval. To remain successful in the years ahead the club desperately needs a ground where fans can be comfortable & safe and the facilities provided justify the ticket price they now charge. Do you want to support a winning footy team or go back to the dim dark days of the Northern Eagles?? If you you want to be on a winner then we need all fans to gather support for the redevelopment of Brookie. Getting friends & family to sign a petition to the NSW government asking them to provide fair & reasonable support to the club's proposal is one simple way you can help out. Don't sit back and rely on somebody else to do it. The email I have sent to my friend/family is below for anyone who wants to copy it. "Manly Sea Eagles need a football stadium to remain competitive in the NRL. All other Sydney clubs (& interstate clubs for that matter) have received significant government support to redevelop their home grounds. Unlike teams like Penrith, St George and Newcastle, the peninsula is not in a marginal or ALP electorate so it is constantly ignored when funds are handed out. We have to start to pressure the State & Federal governments to include Brookvale Oval in any future grants programme. The first step is a petition to show our elected officials that the people of this state want a 21st century sporting facility on the peninsula. I therefore respectfully ask if you could take a few minutes of your time to sign the petition below, just follow the link. Sea Eagles' Fans have started a petition to obtain funds for the upgrading of Brookvale Oval. If you would like to sign the petition please go to http://www.petitiononline.com/brookie/petition.html Thanks everyone, please pass this onto to any Manly fan you know." Hope you all help, let us know how many people you sent this onto.
