May 7th and 8th saw two reunions of past players at ANZAC Park. On the Saturday a large group watched the club battle Glenorchy to record an easy win in the Reserves and a hard fought win for the Nu-Jet Blues over the Magpies by 10 points. On Sunday, a reunion was held at the rooms for the U17 and U19 squads of the 1960’s. Men travelled from all around Australia, from Perth WA, Warrnambool VIC and the Gold Coast Qld. The functions were ably catered by Frank and Bev Shadwick for the Saturday and by ladies of the 60’s group on the Sunday.
Special thanks go to: My wife, Carolyn, for her 13 hours of toil on the gate and behind the bar, Meg and Brooke in the canteen, Andrew Santi for filling in everywhere, Justin Myers for the handmade schnitzels for dinner and Paul Jackson for his bar work on Saturday night. Thanks to Club stalwart Bev Shadwick for cleaning on Sunday morning before the hordes arrived and Jacko again for helping me on Sunday behind the bar. Of course a big thanks to all the past players who made last weekend so enjoyable. Barrett Dickson, Scott Godfrey, Phil Morgan, Steve Midson, Ian Pearce and Wayne Cashion deserve special mention due to their work and support over the weekend. Rest assured, boys, your Club is in good hands!
