It’s the first time for a long time that we head to our nation’s capital and I’ve heard from all manner of people that they and others are heading down for the weekend so the boys should be well supported come Sunday. There are still spots available on the supporter’s bus that leaves Saturday morning at 10.30 (a.m. Bones!) and comes back directly after the game and also a number of other options for those who only need bits and pieces of the tour….see here for more details and to book. https://secure.ticketdesq.com/book/index.cfm?fuseaction=main&TicketDesqID=1073&OrgID=15975 I know there are a few heading down on Friday so feel happy to post in this thread any plans if you are interested in catching up with others who will be there early? The tour group is staying at the Mercure Hotel on the Saturday night and we’ll have a function on (All welcome) there which will include a chance to hear some insight from the coaching staff including Tooves – which is always interesting - but takes on a whole new significance after last Friday’s game… If you’d like to spend a couple of hours with our coach see here for details https://secure.ticketdesq.com/book/index.cfm?fuseaction=main&TicketDesqID=1081&OrgID=15975 For those travelling on the bus we estimate that we’ll be arriving in Goulburn around 1pm on Saturday and we have made a booking at the Goulburn Workers Club for lunch for those that would like to have something to eat/drink. We’ve arranged a $15 lunch deal which is a choice of Fish and chips, Workers Burger or Chicken Schnitzel burger. This includes a middy of tap beer, glass of house wine or soft drink. We should then arrive in Canberra around mid-afternoon with plenty of time to check in, relax, catch up with others etc. before the function. Post function (it finishes at 8 (pm)) I’d dare say that there may be some heading in to town – As there are people staying all over the place then we’re suggesting O’Malley’s as a start point from around 8.30/9.00pm but that will be confirmed later in the week? http://www.kingomalleys.com.au/ As there is a sizeable group staying at the Mercure then that made the most sense to be based at the pub there for pre-game meeting, food and drinks on Sunday. For those looking to eat there is a burger/beer deal - a beef burger and schooner of Boags Draft for $19.00 along with blackboard specials on the day. They are also giving us a 10% discount on all spirits, beer, wine and soft drink and juice between 11 (am) and 1 (pm). The supporters group has been ticketed in Bay 59 for the game so look for tickets there if you’d like to join the group. Everyone is encouraged and welcome to join us for some/all of the proceedings so come along and if you see someone wearing Maroon and white introduce yourselves and hopefully we'll get to put some more faces to names this weekend.
