An update. As most know, I'm well into writing my book about the Club, from very early days, but focussing more on the last 30 years or so. Stories before that are very welcome, though.

I'm catching up with many people, had a lovely lunch with Chris Gasmier today (thanks Chris). The book will take some time, but I thought I'd give an occasional progress report.

So far, about 12,000 words and I'm writing up each season from 1987, up to the present. There will be players' biographies and stories about volunteers and club characters, club personalities and politics, players and coaches.

Any suggestions for a working title are welcome, as are any stories at all that readers might find interesting.

I'll be going to Byron Bay in October for the AFL 9's, and catching up with several old players - Symes, Mellor, Andriske, Barrett, Howard, Banik and many others. Should be a few stories there.

Hopefully it will be a good addition to the club's resources.

Over 20,000 words now. Neil Kerley is catching up for a chat soon.

Writing up seasons in the early 90's now.

You should speak to Kevin Morris re the late 80’s early 90’s Lee. He will give great insight as to what transpired in that period.
