RICHO’S POSTCARD FROM THE EDGE…

first_imgThe life of a Game Development Officer provides many challenges – a lot of travel, weekend work, and your fair share of sunburn, sleep deprivation, and strained vocal chords to list a few of the prices to be paid to deliver the sport you love for a livelihood. TFA Game Development Officers will be featured regularly on the web-site giving readers an insight into their world in “Postcards from the Edge”. The first GDO featured is North Queensland’s Glen ‘Richo’ Richardson.Queensland Touch Game Development Officer Glen ‘Richo’ Richardson packed his referee whistle, his superior karaoke skills, and his ‘can do’ positivity in his kitbag and moved to Townsville from the Gold Coast early in 2007 to continue his GDO career.Lapping up the laid back North Queensland lifestyle, ‘Richo’ is also making a big impression on locals with his professionalism, work ethic, and positive commitment to making a difference.The hardworking and popular GDO sent a postcard home about life in the North. The photograph took a little more explaining, especially to his Mum and Dad!!!Richo’s Postcard from the Edge….“Firstly I have to thank all the North Queensland people who have made me feel very welcome. Executive Officer Billy Grant and Executive Assistant Angee Lane have both been fantastic in helping me settle in, and I now occupy a desk in the North Queensland Office allowing close contact with the hub of Touch in the North.Since arriving I have met with a number of affiliates including: Townsville Castle Hill, Thuringowa, Charters Towers, Burdekin, Bowen, Sarina, Whitsundays and I am just about to embark on a tour to Cloncurry and Mount Isa where I will run a Level 1 referee course. There are still a few affiliates that I haven’t met with yet however I will be visiting them after the NTL in late March and early April.It is an exciting time for touch in the North with most affiliates showing growth in their competitions along with diligent volunteers that I have met making North Queensland such a friendly and enjoyable place to work.There is a long road ahead, Townsville and North Queensland has been without a permanently stationed development officer for some time now, however I hope that with my assistance and the support of North Queensland Touch, Queensland Touch and Touch Football Australia, together we can make Touch Football an enjoyable sport for Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime…”Footnote: Glen’s parents can breath a sigh of relief, ‘clean skin’ Richo was just signing the visitor’s book at the Sarina Police station, though many of us who have been on the wrong side of his refereeing decisions over the years thought that justice had finally been done with the long arm of the law reeling the little big man of the refereeing ranks in for his repeated and blatant misinterpretation of the TFA 7th edition Rule book…Just kidding Richo.
