The Black Swamp 29ers are pleased to announce their bid to take part in the impending ORFFF competition. For the ignorant and/or uninitiated Black Swamp is a small but spirited township in the New England region of NSW and the town and planned footy field - to be known as "the Paddock" (the $500 cost is to be funded by the raffle of meat trays at home games during the 2016 ORFFF season) - is bisected by the 29 degrees south parallel of Latitude, hence the club nickname the 29ers. With a population of just 186 people Black Swamp will seek to attract fans from neighbouring towns including Tenterfield, Tabulum and Downs and across the region ensuring a packed Paddock every other Saturday afternoon. Pregame burnout competitons, half time burnout competitions and post match burnout competitions are amongst the planned entertainment at this early stage although the club is keen to hear of any ideas the players and WAGS have once the squad is recruited. For those opponents on the wrong side of the QLD/NSW border (Chinchilla and Dingo Beach) we are around 2 and a half hours South of Toowoomba on the A3 and A15 highways and for those hailing from origins further South and West (everyone else) we are around 5 and a half hours North East of Coonabarabran on the B56 and A15 highways. While Black Swamp Football Club represents one of the lowest socio-economic areas in the whole of Australia and is proud of its country working class heritage and hence will be using bus to travel to and from the majority of it's away games the well heeled franchises amongst the ORFFF are welcome to make good use of the local airport which is a few clicks to the North East of Tenterfield:- http://airportguide.com/airport/Australia/New_South_Wales/Tenterfield-YTFD/runways.php It's only recommended for small plane use but watch out though as despite several hundreds of dollars being spent on repairs and maintenance over the airports 20 years of existence the landings have been known to cause a few passengers to revisit their breakfasts Whichever and whatever your mode of arrival visiting teams are invited to bunk down overnight at the clubrooms or alternatively they can stay at a discounted group rate of $25 per night player (inclusive of a 6 pack) at the Tenterfield Tavern which is owned and operated by Dave "Davo" Davidson. Given weekly rent in Black Swamp is around $45 per week once your transport rolls into town you should have plenty of cash left over for some pre and post game activities whatever your club's and players preferred style. We expect a strong rivalry with the Chinchilla Chumps who are closest opponents geographically speaking of those who have nominated thus far, and we expect to contend strongly from the get go a decent home ground advantage against teams which are not used to the 10 degree slope of the Paddock as measured from goal square to goalsquare.
