JUMPER PRESENTATION
Senior coach Garry Ramsay will be addressing players and supporters tomorrow night in the social rooms, followed by a jumper presentation. Meals will be served and the bar will be open from 6pm. Come down and watch the boys go through their paces and stick around for the Richmond v Collingwood clash on the big screen (and Steve Doherty’s take on how the Magpies are travelling in 2017).

PRACTICE MATCH
On Saturday we journey to Schramms Reserve in Doncaster to take on EFL Division 1 side Doncaster in all three grades. This will be our final hitout before the season opener against Hurstbridge on April 8.

KERRY O’KEEFFE NIGHT
We are delighted to announce the return of Kerry O’Keeffe (‘The Skull’) for a great night of entertainment. After his sellout function in 2014, Kerry is back, this time to delight us at De Winton Park on Saturday, April 22 at 6.30pm. Cost is $85 a head, includes gourmet food, and pre-dinner drinks package (beer, wine, champagne, and soft drink). Contact Michael Lovett 0418 380979 or Michael.Lovett@afl.com.au

BEYONDBLUE LUNCH
This year’s lunch on Saturday, April 29, will feature former AFL player Lance Picioane who will speak about his battle with depression since retiring from the game. He is now helping others through his Me Love You program. Cost is $30 a head and includes a two-course lunch, with drinks at bar prices. Contact Leigh Moulden 0401 418342 or lmoulden@iaa.net.au.
