What a great turn out for the first training of 2009! To have 16 blokes at this time of the year, out running the icy streets was awesome. For all those that missed out it started off with a 3km time trial that was done in groups. After that the boys stayed in the same groups and had the time of their lives taking part in a scavenger hunt / orienteering activity. They competed against each other doing activities such as sliding down snowy hills on cardboard, carrying each other through the snow, collecting women's business cards and trying to a kick goals through posts on an icy deck.
We are looking for running midfielders and key position players.

After winning the prestigious Burnaby Eagles goal-kicking award, the Eagles were left reeling when Colin Hilton - club president - announced his resignation as President immediately.
Burnaby Eagles are pleased to announce that the 2008 Best and Fairest player is Robert West. Westy had a sensational season and polled well in all the games he played. It was a great effort as Westy headed off on his travel adventures and missed the final two games of the season.

In what can only be described as a titanic struggle between the Burnaby Eagles and West Coast Saints, the Eagles were able to pull out a one point victory on the last kick of the day. The game was played in perfect conditions at the "Hilton C G". At the conclusion of the game the goal umpires were required to get their calculators out to determine the final score as both teams were uncertain of the official score.
