We are very proud to announce that Janne Filmer was recognised with the Service to Uni Sport Award at the Blues Awards earlier this week. The Service to Uni Sport recognises those who have made an "outstanding and highly commendable" contribution to sport at AU over at least 15 years. Janne has previously been awarded the 2005 AUFC Outstanding Service Award, AUFC Life Membership in 2012, the 2016 AU Sport Volunteer of the Year Award (non-student), the 2016 AUFC Best Club Member Award, and AU Sport Club Letters in 2017. We nominated Janne for the Service to AU Sport Award for her outstanding contributions over the past two decades, not just to the AUFC, but also to Adelaide University Sport and Sport in general at the University of Adelaide. Janne has filled many roles at the AUFC since the early 1990’s. For 13 seasons she was a water runner / trainer for the top teams; over the past 15 seasons she has managed the selling and organising of club merchandise and, in recent years, has been a valued and highly engaged Vice President and member of the Executive Committee with primary responsibility for coordinating important social / community events including ANZAC Day, and as Chair of the AUFC Historical Subcommittee. Janne’s contribution to the club includes revenue raising; donations of homemade treats to Exec meetings and as gifts for sponsors and as auction items; stocking the kitchenware for the Long Room; acquiring bicycle racks, a flagpole and a flag for University oval; the donation of a trophy for the most improved A grade woman player; and event planning and coordination. One of Janne’s most significant contributions has been as Chair of the AUFC Historical Sub-Committee. This sub-committee has collated the historical records for AU Sport Awards, Full Blues, Half Blues and Club Letters for both the football and cricket clubs. Janne has virtually single-handedly ensured the Hall of Fame and Life Members’ Honour Rolls are up to date and accurate, and is our ‘go-to’ source of information for historical profiles for Hall of Fame, Life Members, Club Letters and other nominations. Janne has dedicated countless hours to the AUFC and AUCC World War I Memorial project. The work done by Janne and Rob O’Shannessy of the AUCC culminated in the creation of the picket fence between the grand-stand and the scoreboard. Each picket commemorates a WW1 AUFC / AUCC ANZAC. The fence is an enduring and poignant reminder to all who visit Uni oval of those courageous University ANZACs who made the ultimate sacrifice. The fence has served as a striking back-drop to memorable ANZAC and Remembrance Day services including the 100 year Gallipoli service in 2015.Congratulations Janne! Bob Neil Salutes You! ...
