The Columbus Jackaroos and Jillaroos were featured in 614
Magazine, promoting the club and upcoming events including
the 2012 49th Parallel
Cup and future Nationals.
The CARFC kicked off its inaugural season in 2008 with
the Jackaroos (a "jackaroo" is an Australian slang for a
cowboy in the Outback) men's team and has only grown since.
In 2010, the Jackaroos added their female counterparts, the
Jillaroos (Aussie cowgirls), who will square off against
regional power Toronto this summer. Looking ahead, the club
helped secure Dublin as the venue for the 49th Parallel Cup
(USA vs. CAN) this fall, with the USAFL National
Championships following in 2013 or 2014.
