Wow, what a Grand Final and congratulations to West Coast. It was the close Grand Final we all look forward to with both teams playing their heart out.
For those who weren’t at our celebration the following were the winners of the season: It was a very close competition with mystery rounds playing a big part. We ended the season with three people equally on 143:
Alex Ehrlich, Kerry Grace and Ron Harrington – congratulations to all three!
The Mystery Round winners were announced:
- Round 4 with 9 out of 9 Brian O’Gallagher – closest margin 16 points
- Round 8 with 9 out of 9 Keith Smart – closest margin 4 points (your prize is in the office and can be collected during the week)
- Round 12 with 6 out of 7 ( bye week) Bruce Floyd – closest margin 19 points
- Round 16 with 8 out of 9 Kerry Grace – exact margin 12 points
- Round 20 with 8 out of 9 Ian Watson – closest margin 4 points
No one selected the Brownlow winner but as Vivienne Floyd was the only one to select the runner up she was given a prize.
We also acknowledged those that were there on the day and had selected all the winning teams in a round throughout the season but didn’t win because of the margin.
A special award was given to Ron Smith who celebrated with us. A tough year for Ron health wise but always managed to get tips in.
Jenny Davis won the Bendigo Bank award for the best dressed on the day, in her team colours blue and yellow, even down to alternating nail polish and different coloured thongs.
We had two competitions for everyone to compete in and some happy club members got $100 each for spending $2 to pick the first team to kick a goal and the Norm Smith Medalist.
No one picked West Coast to win – not even their supporters!
Everyone received a goodie bag and if you weren’t there on the day we have kept one for you – thanks to Coopers and the Club for donations. The bags have your names on them so be sure to collect them from the office.
A great day, big loud crowd and thanks to Club staff and tipsters who helped out on the day.
Don’t forget to join up again next year. Thanks for all your support and feed back.
