Bondy - I'm in for the Castlemaine comp if we can pull a team together. Have accommdation sorted with friends up there. Image not relevant to this update but thought you might like to know what I was doing when I missed footy on Monday the 5th. GB.

ADAM:- Yup, I'm in.

Ratty - all can camp at my place
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.

Yep it's on again tonight (Monday) Quick BBQ and refreshments after.
And a POSSIBLE appearance by Superman maybe dressed up as Santa

We are keeping on:- Yep another turnout of over 20 for a fun game.
Though the sun was blazing there was quite a cool sea-breeze
and it was as enjoyable as it gets.
We will continue next Monday 12th and again Mon 19th

FODDER FOR GLENNS HEADLAND ADDRESS - After a two hour, 24 stitch triple Hernia repair, I will be getting picked up from the Epworth at 545 in time for the first bounce, albeit in the limited capacity of goal umpire. Inspirational? Yes. The sort of fooder a coach like Glenn will alrteady have written in to his headland address tonight.

TAKE IT EASY SUPERMAN:- Adam, we'll give you a leave pass for this one, Mate.
I hope the embroidery has come up a treat.
But those general anaesthethethethetics really take it out of you!

ADAM:- Hangover without a headache...Nicely put. That's a man who knows about going under. I would have gone the local if I'd known the about the after shocks. In fact if i'd known about the shivering and the anxiety attacks I'd go a local for basically any procedure.

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

My Tracker Spies? - The Japan search for Irish Fodge was just Dumb Luck to come to the MUD.
But I think it might be Kev Walker in the US, could be Stoney in Sydney, and who do you reckon is looking for MUD in France?
Now there's India, Nigeria, Korea, Japan again, Seattle (US), Wilton (south of Sydney), Perth.
Nigeria was googling for Subiaco (what?) - not too sure about how google works there
This is getting confusing!

THE EAST BRUNSWICK TRADITION - East Brunswick Past Players are hosting their December Reunion on December 2nd. The Old Timers include VFL legends from the 40s and 50s Frank Brew and Jack MacGregor. 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.
For both the East Brunswick Reunion or the AFL-9s, contact Peter Laming 0403-587-979

Friday December 2nd - 12 noon to 3ish (and later for those who cannot make it during work hours).
EVERYONE WELCOME for a chinwag, a friendly ale and a snack. Just a $5 charge to cover costs.
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.
If you have a contact for an old teammate, please pass on this info. Contact: Peter Laming - 0403-587-979, email plaming@tpg.com.au

Fodge:- Loving the banter boys! Not sure why the 'Livs comp' comment was censored, I thought it was really funny! Liv's mixed team is awesome, some of the girls in the comp would get a run in the supers!
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'?
Friday, 18 November 2011 10:50 AM - Host: c114-76-98-22.thoms3.vic.optusnet.com.au

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

Great Fun hope to get more, so we can start the second pitch working.
Then we can seed the kids with the gentler players.

The more the merrier:- We gave up on interchange after a while and all got into the fun.
A bit tight with 12-a-side, so with a few more next week we can start the second pitch.

Bruny 9s Plenty there - Please bring your club jumper so we can have one team in black and the other side can turn the jumpers inside out. Or any jumper that is white on the inside will be OK.
Remember, we can use PLENTY MORE PLAYERS, for quick interchange, and remember we have 2 grounds marked out, so we can run a second game at the same time if numbers go much past 30.

SEVERE WEATHER POLICY - As in previous years; Ming will send out SMSs if it grass is wet or if it's over 35°C
If it's wet grass, it's too slippery for sandshoes.
If over 35°C at 4pm we may cancel too - depends on whether Sea Breeze shows on doppler.
Sea breeze is a bit later at East Bruny than at North Melb, but there is also shade on the west side of ground for a game of touch-handball. Bring a HAT!
Very likely to go ahead unless over 40°C. Whatever happens, Ming will be sitting on the refreshment trolley till at least 7pm.
Can't go home, the Evil Empress would expect Ming home early every Monday.

najj - few questions we need to ask so our club can grow and move forward ie; why dont we get numbers at training and why dont blokes stick around after games,whats your comment on the subjects.

ADAM: THOUGHTS...:- I suspect that in winter it is just too bloody cold. But that's hard to change. No question, we need to get more at training.
  • Look at the really strong clubs, the common link is NUMBERS. They have deep lists. They have eight on the bench at times.
  • You could try every other trick in the book, but if don't have the bodies, it's a waste of time.
  • Ming and I have started to push recruiting. We have posters up all over the bloody Northern suburbs.
  • I have contacted four club presidents / secretaries that border the mudlarkery and told them we want their EX players. West Brunswick / Northcote Cougars/Pascoe Vale/West Coburg... amongst them.
  • I have the leader newspaper agreeing to run another article in late Jan on the condition we run an ad, so we'll do that.
    The aim is NUMBERS. I'll keep the brethren updated.
    Wednesday, 9 November 2011 12:05 PM - Host: 114-198-71-57.dyn.iinet.net.au

  • Wilba:- Numbers can be bad as well. In my glory Superules days at Oak Park we would only get 6-15 average at training a night, versus the mights of Footscray (now Williamstown), Diamond Valley and a couple of others. We won the comp 3 years in a row and the key was having the right numbers, meaning a list of approx 24-26 players...more than that can mean trouble.
    I know many players at the "big" clubs and they have terrible weeks where they have 8 or 10 on the bench and the limited game time they get is really disappointing. We don't need too many more to both enjoy and be successful with our footy.
    Remember...the grass isn't always greener.
