VALE CHAPS - Former player Garry Chappell passed away on Jan 4.
Our heartfelt sympathy to his family. Rest in Peace Chappie
Chaps was a strong player for East and West Brunswick in the classic small-ruckman way.
He played for our superules team for several seasons in the mid-nineties and was instrumental in our making finals in those years.

Will:- Sorry to hear that news. I had a look at the photo Ming and recognized Noel Borg who I played with at Hadfield. Also went to school with him at Haddy High.

Merry Xmas from Bruny9s - Santa did come to Bruny9s and will come to all good little Mudlarks, wishing them a Happy and Safe Festive Season with the family, friends, and of course good food followed by a good stroll to work it back off.
It might look like Santa should have been wearing the traditional red, but Monday is wash day so he borrowed a jumper from his little Dutch helper Zwarte Piet (Black Pete)
Bruny 9s are having a break until 23rd Jan, and stay tuned for Will's training sessions probably Thursdays in feb - To Be Announced

Tiger - Merry Christmas all
I saw an article in The Age yesterday,qouting a Collingwood sports guy. He's just completed a study that proves that cold stretching, actually reduces performance in the game that follows. Couldn't believe that some sports people still sit on the change room floor and do the hammys, calfs etc. He suggested quick run throughs and standing jumps to get the heart going instead - this proven to help performance.
This may explain our form for the past seven years.
And help us next season. Warm up lap then run throughs, lads.
Thought it might be helpful. Right, back to my eggs then.

See you all next year. Cheers, Tiger

chook:- spot on tiger.new research has found that stretching before sport may actually make muscles contract and become shorter the exact opposite of what you want before working out.active warm gets the blood flowing and primes the muscles and joints for movement.post stretching is the best.merry xmas all cheers.

Sporting Pulse sez:- Basic injury prevention
Sport helps you keep your body happy and healthy, however, injuries can prevent you from participating in your favourite sport.
Below are some quick tips to staying injury free.
* Routine physical / fitness screening
* Warm up and Cool down with slow, gently activities.
   Save stretching for your cool down period.
* Build up gradually until you reach the length and intensity of exercise you’re aiming for.
   It takes time to learn the proper techniques.
* Rest and Recovery. It is important to rest, it can make you stronger
* Wear appropriate protective gear and equipment, this may include;
   protective pads, mouth guards, helmets and gloves.
   Make sure you use it correctly and that it fits well.
* Avoid playing in pain      WHAT?! HOW?
* Pay attention to your hydration – drink plenty of water.
* Use proper techniques, if you’re unsure about the technique ask your coach or a friend.
* Play safe – follow the rules.

Stoney:- I've never had a soft tissue injury in my life and I never stretch, before, during or after a game. Never getting anywhere near the ball has also helped me immeasurably over the years.
Happy Christmas you glorious bast..ds!

STRANGE BUT TRUE - HOME PAGE HAS MYSTERIOUSLY REVERTED BACK TO THE 'OLD' RULES. IT'S IF YOU ARE OVER 35, NOT 40.

Ming:- Ratty runs the Brunswick Home page, and I think he is on the case right now.
I had hacked in and changed it to o35 last time someone squealed, but I forgot to tell Ratty, or he didn't come to training or something, so his Page Writing program wasn't updated.
As we have an affiliation with Marcellin in Premier Division o35s, especially sharing players in the Legends, we meet the criteria for Premier Division Reserves (o35s!) = our old "Masters".
Calling the teams SUPER35s, XTRA35s and OVER47s is clearer than Supers, Masters(Res) and Legends.
Or even O-35s, X-35s and O-47s

I went to Marcellin, and will pay subs there next year, so that's at least one official eligiblity for the cross-over criteria. I think Budgie trains there too. - If there are any more - please let us know.
Marcellin and Brunswick always play at the same away venues, so when there is room for Brunswick players to be called up to Marcellin, we willingly supply them.
We have less than 20% of our "Masters" in the 35-40 bracket, and we are playing First Division, so we do NOT compare with second division teams that wish to drop their Supers and only play Masters and Legends.
We understand the gripe for Premier division clubs who have to split their forces playing Marcellin/Brunswick, but it's only once every 2 years.

10km from castlemaine were on 2.7 acre so caravan good too if you have one
local pub for food all good all good all welcome

Sign-Deadline is 31st Dec:- I meant to ask blokes at 9s tonight. If we cannot get a full team I'm sure we could wrangle in several of the state players.
Evil Emperor Ming might be a "doubtful" though - that's the weekend before his anniversary, and he'll need permission. Actually, Castlemaine is one of the places to stay at on an occasion - but 2 days of footy? the Empress might go on the warpath!

SUMMER FOOTY COMPS - Who's up for the Masters9s (over-35s) Comp in Castlemaine
on the weekend of Feb 18,19.
Min 4 games.
Costs $500, but shared over the squad is about $30 each ($500 = 10x$50 = 17x$30 = 20x$25)
We'll have to check with Ratty about local Accommodation cos that part of the world is a tourist trap, but the cheapest I've seen are 3br units a few blocks south of the main drag of Castlemaine for about $180pn ie $60pn/couple. Probably need to be damn quick!

Don't forget the Pambula Beach Easter Mini Carnival
(SthCoast NSW just past Eden) 7th & 8th April

This is the Tenth year (Ming's BadHat has been to all 9 so far) and it's brilliant - SCBuccaneers, Sydney/Wagga, ACT, VicC, VicM, Frankston and Peninsula all send teams. It's still warm there, 4 half hour games in 2 days, several great Seafood Restaurants, plenty of Accomm in Merimbula (7km away), Many Beaches, often Surf, Fishing for the skilled, Pubs, Bowls Clubs Meals, Footy Club BBQ and Dance and best of all, you can sometimes fill-in for other teams.

9s on Mon 5th Dec - We had 25 players on the 21st, and 24 last night on the 28th.
All keen to come back next week on Monday 5th.
There is no other training prepares you for the great game like a scratch match.
Pushups, situps, sprints and circuits are just so much conditioning that you can pace yourself through, but chasing a player when you're stuffed, bending-down on the sprint and dishing off, jumping from out of position etc etc etc - there's nothing like hunting down your own kicks under pressure.

Blessed with the weather:- Had great weather for the first 3 weeks, but looked like being wery tropical last night, especially when the sun came out to cook us at 6pm, but another cloudbank took pity and with the breeze it was actually quite pleasant right through to 7:30

Unable to continue using the 1937 Grandstand at Fleming Park, the Old-Timers are kindly hosted by the Lomond Hotel.
Meanwhile, an off-shoot of these Local -Legends are just continuing the tradition, making good use of Fleming Park space over summer with Brunswick Masters hosting AFL-9s, a half-size, non-contact version of footy catering for all skills levels - vets, novices and mixed games on Monday evenings.

The East Brunswick Past Players have been meeting to relive the tradition each July and December (on the First Friday), since they closed the pavillion it's been held from 12 noon at the LOMOND HOTEL, Nicholson St, East Brunswick.
Some of the stories from the 1940s are just marvelous, and now it’s time for
some NEW Old Players to keep the great memories and tradition of 90 years
of East Brunswick thriving.
We are now targeting players from the 80s & 90s to rekindle the old camaraderie, however, players from all eras are welcome.

I'm only a tart during this preseason, the more touches(of the footy)the better I reckon. Trained with Diamond Valley last night too, does that upgrade my status from 'Tart' to 'Floozy'?

One daliance does not a tart make!:- You might have the scale around the wrong way, Flirt, Floozy, Tart, Trollop I thought?
Brunswick and Diamond Valley, eh? are we seeing a salt'n'pepper fetish?
In my younger days I used to preseason TRAIN with Reservoir, Greensborough, Ascot Vale, Essendon.
You SIMPLY MUTHT come to the PAMBULA BEACH (NSW) MINI CARNIVAL at Easter, best mini-carnival there is! 10th year next year. Diamond Valley always have half a dozen there.
South Coast Buccaneers, ACT, Wagga/Sydney, Metro, Country, Frankston, and Peninsula send teams for the 2 day round robin, but the REAL TARTS swap in and out of as many games they can. Motels in Merimbula or camp at the ground, Great Seafood Places, Bowls Club on Friday Night, Footy Sat, Clubrooms BBQ Sat Night, Footy Sun. Only downside is 6hr drive to Eden - leave early Good Friday to beat traffic, get there by lunch. Coming home make a break at Bucchan Caves or Lakes Entrance

And then if you are o45 (or close) there's the Barooga Match v Vic Country on Queen'sBDayWE Saturday (actually we may be having a second game that day for younger blokes and inviting NSW & ACT guys too) - TART ME UP
