ACF Cracks Down on Booze

Sometimes these ACF folks just send me reeling like a drunk after a coupl'a dozen cases of alcopops. The body's latest email newsletter contains a link to the "ACF Code of Conduct for Juniors". I don't know about you, but I think it's the first time I've read it. Anyway here's an item in the Code that caught my eye and it appears under the section "Parents accept responsibility for":

Paying all costs if their child is requested to withdraw from the competition after failing to modify their behaviour after an official warning. Where abuse of alcohol or substance abuse occurs no warning system operates. Parents should be aware that alcohol/substance abuse will lead to immediate withdrawal from the competition and being sent home in disgrace.

Did you get that? You don't just go home, you go home in disgrace! So there you are kids - lay off the booze.
