One of the attendees was former umpire, Jim McSweeney who at 84 officiated in his final match this year in a Masters Carnival. There were several other former umpires at the function including Chris Huon and Bill Allen.
A number of other members gave their apologies however they missed a great function where the atmosphere was keen and a number of old football stories were told.
Members will be pleased to know that this year’s journal, Time On, is currently being prepared and will be posted out prior to Christmas. The issue includes many interesting stories of former happenings in the sport over the past 130 or so seasons and is a great read.
